On torture and Otto Warmbier

It’s been a horrible couple of days for me personally for personal and work-related reasons (when your day to day is guaranteed to include reading about the torture of mentally ill women or the trafficking of children for organs, it can be hard to tell when you need a break or a breakdown).

Apparently there’s now a question of whether or not to nuke North Korea for the torture and subsequent neurological damage that led to his death.

It would be nice if this kind of passionate ire could be inspired by the disgustingly commonplace torture of women and children in North America. Hell, it would simply be nice if the survivors could be believed and receive help instead of dismissed as hysterical and delusion.
