“If you have to issue a law to punish criminals of war and violence, how would you punish these people and why?”

“They say a nation is judged not by criminals and the crimes they commit, but how the nation punishes them. If I were to create a law, it would be to implement mental rehabilitation because character is such a complex phenomenon. We cannot judge someone’s character based on the crimes that they commit. If we punish somebody just as equally as the crimes they have committed, then what does that say about us? I would implement mental rehabilitation. Thank you.”

Please spread more books, more cultures, more friendships and more love. Thank you.”

The mother earth who will absorb you when you die is a woman and you need to respect them all.”
