CW: Torture

As others here have already said, this reads like somebody who has a naive view of torture.

It’s nice to say you wouldn’t break but that almost surely is not true. Torture isn’t just getting hit, it’s so much worse. Imagine rather than torturing you they bring in your spouse, or your kids, and torture them in front of you until they beg you to tell them what they want.

Torture works, it may not yield 100% accurate results, but it does work. So instead of trying to get people to resist torture, information should be compartmentalized, and people should be organized into autonomous cells so that there is a firewall, if somebody from one cell is compromised they can only give up that cell.
