I know what you mean. I just worry that the "needed a killing" gets bended/manipulated to achieve an end that benefit someone. Something like that, you get what I mean? Alienation or some smart ass making people's minds.

Yeah I get you...

I think some of us fall into the trap of trying to devise a perfect society though, I've thought about it a lot and never came up with a solution I was completely satisfied by.

Of course I think we should strive to build a society where violence/"crime" is as rare as possible, but a lot of times for instance, when anarchists are asked what to do with rapists/murderers/etc the response tends to be some adorable variant of "Oh we'll rehab them, everything will be fine, there will magically be zero violent crime and absolute human justice, teehee!" which I think is kind of unrealistic.

I'm sure that the "needed a killing" defense will get abused and will be imperfect, but I think the alternatives are less desirable.

The important is to keep thinking. We humans are not meant to stagnate on one thing. We're explorers. We're learners.
