The death penalty

Death penalty as a punishment is unacceptable. Death is bad whether it’s Stalin’s or Einstein’s: a corpse can’t acknowledge own mistakes and become better.

You tackled the problem from the point of view of who’s being accused. If you switch to the society’s point of view, you’ll see that death penalty, despite being obviously inhumane, is rational: the risk of the accused person not succeeding in deliberate acknowledging their mistakes is too high.

Of course, this applies if only we talk about a death penalty for something that deserves it.
