Response to First Post
I agree with your suggestion that the article “In Defense of the Death Penalty" focuses on
the use of the death penalty for retaliation and deterrence. As you note, the retributive defense
maintains that the death penalty is "an adequate response to evil." However, it would be
imperative to take note of the weakens of the deontological approach to linking the commission
of a death sentence to the "lost the right to survive." In the future, it is important to incorporate
the aspect that the use of the death penalty as a deterrent is inherently more practical. I believe

argument. However, due to many problems in practice, as Nathanson has repeatedly
emphasized, criminals sentenced to death may be innocent. Thus, it is true that executions
