So, saving 40m lives does not justify the torture you inflicted on one man?
That is ridiculous. Idealism can do those things too. Think of Hitlers idealism.
The world is fine (if not way better off than in the past). At any rate, place the blame on an abstract concept is hardly fair. Not to mention idealism plays a huge role in how the world functions to begin with. So this point is moot.
I am coming from a "I want to save as many lives as possible even if i have to sacrifice my soul to Satan himself" stand point.

What about the Fifth Amendment, would you care or would you have a second thought in your decision.
So until you comment on why you are posting with the insinuation that the torture would absolutely without doubt be 100% successful with 100% accurate information before
