The Case for Torture by Michael Levin presents excellent justification for the use of torture in situations of extreme desperation Levin gives great arguments for the use of torture through clever wording and great exemplification In supplement to the already great argument he provides potential counter-arguments and proves why they are invalid It is made very clear that he believes that torture is morally mandatory and makes great effort to sway the opinion of readers provided they keep an open mind Levin presents a great argument and presents the ideas in an organized fashion but as with many essays it is not without flaw and could use some minor changes to make this great essay into a incredible essay The format of the introduction of Levins essay is somewhat unusual It begins with a few powerful statements but the very first statement violates a rule of literature inclusion of an unsupported fact Levin says It is generally assumed that torture is impermissible a throwback to a more brutal age Not only is the statement a generalization he is saying that something is generally assumed but he does not say whom it is assumed by So who generally assumes it It seems it is more of a mistake of wording because he is the one who is assuming that generally people think torture is wrong therefore the essay should read that way because the last thing one should do is start off on the wrong foot The essay truly lacks any real lead-in or background The essay just jumps right into the real issues without introducing them or explaining why it was even written in the first place The reason for the essay is not the real issue though The issue is that it lacks background because it doesnt appear that Levin is actually arguing against another point of view Last I knew an argument required two points of view to start with but
