WINNER OF THE PREVIOUS CONTEST
The previous declaration was the following:
The second reason why the death penalty must be done away with is that it has never repressed crime; for crime is every day committed at the foot of the scaffold. This punishment is to be got rid of, in a word, because it would be difficult to conceive of a poorer calculation than this, by which a man is put to death for having killed another: under the present arrangement the obvious result is not one man the less but, of a sudden, two; such arithmetic is in use only amongst headsmen and fools.
Christopher Lynch, from Clarkson University, New York, USA, is the winner.
We wish you pleasant holidays Christopher on the island of inconsistencies, have a look at "books" and "papers" to have nice readings while on the Island !
