Good Reasons to Kill by @ChrisRhyss
What would you kill for?
Is killing ever justified? Would you kill to protect someone you love? Is killing for your country an act of patriotism or murder? Is the death penalty justified or simply vengeance? Is one human life ever worth more than another?
In ‘Good Reasons to Kill’, former soldier Chris Rhyss Edwards shares stories of people from all walks of life who have chosen or been forced by circumstance to kill. Over a five year timespan he investigated controversial subjects spanning domestic homicide, war, euthanasia, abortion, child soldiers, infanticide, state execution, terrorism and honor killings to try and understand why we kill.
‘Good Reasons to Kill’, the first book of its kind, shares the stories of people who have confronted the biggest moral dilemma possible. At the core of each story are two questions; what would you do in the same situation, and do we ever have a good reason to kill?
