This post over at Sad Salvation raises an interesting point. (Be sure to read the Followup post too.)
I agree that using torture as “entertainment” is messed up. That’s the reason I refused to see “The Passion of the Christ.” Anybody who enjoys torture as entertainment should, as Eric said in his comment, seek therapy. Also, as Rich points out, torture is not generally an effective information-gathering tool because the people will say anything to get the pain to stop, including lying to you. When you get information through torture, you can’t be totally sure it’s accurate. How is that useful?
Reading this, I’m glad that I stopped watching “24” before it devolved into this.
