Holy nouns, Batman! It's been a year since I've updated this blog. I've got posts. I'm just lazy.

Let's start off easy. Politics! Crime! Justice!

Treason shouldn’t be a crime. The more I think about it, the more ridiculous it seems that it's considered one. It's especially egregious when it's considered a capital crime!

Treason is the ultimate conflict of interest. The same party is the victim, prosecutor, and executioner; sometimes even the judge and/or jury. There’s no way that such a case can be handled objectively.

This is ultimately to say that I should probably never serve on the jury for a treason trial, ‘cause I’d probably vote to nullify on general principles.
