Touch-free torture: America becomes the USSR
For those of us who were interested in human rights before that became the excuse to invade countries, it is very bitter to see the people who used the HR movement against the Soviets use their same methods.
McCoy has laid out the evidence that methods as innocuous-seeming as sleep deprivation or even forcing people to stand for extended periods of time cause fatalities. It's then written off to renal failure or a coronary and the general public imagines that the death was an unforeseeable accident.
This is the face of evil: calculating how to injure, torture, and kill while convincing people that it is benign. People who can do this believe they are beyond the reach of judgment. Unlike atheists and pagans, who may do good believing they will receive no reward, those who harm under the guise of innocence are truly beyond the mercy of God.
