Execution for crimes against humanity?

Killing someone may or may not be appropriate, lawful, etc. Murder is always wrong.

Also quite tired of the whole "diversity of thought" shibboleth. If someone thinks murder is cool, or that murder is cool as long as you're murdering the right people, I have no room in my life for them, and I don't believe a sane and civilized world should have any place for their "diverse thought".

Interesting to see it described that way.  Whenever I've seen "diversity of thought" it was coming from the good guys.  For example, it is used to criticize academia and other institutions when they push "diversity" so hard, diversity of race, ethnicity, sexual preference, etc. etc. but they're happy to discriminate against people who don't have left-leaning thinking.

Precisely why this particular turn of phrase began to grate on me. It now strikes me as useless at best and actively counter-productive at worst, like all the appeals to Muh Constitution, because it's so easily turned around and used as a weapon. "Oh, but you wouldn't want to BETRAY your PRECIOUS PRINCIPLES, would you? You wouldn't want to be a HYPOCRITE!" Well, screw that. Because I have absolutely zero compunction about defanging or eliminating those who hate me when I know perfectly well they're perfectly happy to eliminate me "by any means necessary" whenever they think they can get away with it.

Taking the high road only works in the movies, and when you are a jedi.

In real life, you lose. Your enemy will eat you.
