    Default Mish: McCain on Torture and Waterboarding; Ron Paul on Bin Laden and Torture

    McCain on Torture and Waterboarding; Ron Paul on Bin Laden and Torture: Bin Laden Is Dead – Let’s Come Home!

    Bin Laden Is Dead – Let’s Come Home!
    [...]
    I agree with McCain on torture but side with Ron Paul on the need to get the hell out of Afghanistan and Iraq.

    [...] I commend Senator John McCain and Congressman Ron Paul for their steadfast opposition to torture.

    "Thinking that torture is wrong is not a liberal or conservative value - it is simply a value."
    That "agree with" line was poorly written. It should be more like, "I agree w/ McCain and Paul on torture, and with Paul on getting the hell out..."

    Torture is one of the few issues that McCain is good on.

    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.
