Our generation now is far from what they were before so I think there's no point fusing what had already happened even before we were born. Let's just keep this as a closed book


There is, of course, no way to re-do the past. but it is essential to remember and hopefully learn from the past. That's why it is so important to analyze history. The reason I brought this up is because I have just been watching some documentaries on World War II. We can't close the book on the past if we are to learn from it and hopefully avoid the same mistakes.

The history always has two sides. It depends on the users to use it.

I suppose that we can justify it if the lives of the majority were at risk due to this individual. I'm thinking about extreme cases, for example a madman who has a nuclear bomb in the center of Los Angeles, say, and is about to trigger the mechanism... I suppose that it would justified if some marskmen would take him out from a distance.

So in general, I think that in a situation in which an individual is about to eliminate a large percentage of the population, it could be justifiable to assassinate the perp, if only because the power of numbers (1 person against a multitude of persons)
