Back in the old days, humans used to torture the hell out of each other. They utilized physical pain to break the spirits of their enemies, instill fear, gain obedience, etc. Important shit. In most of the modern world, we now think calling someone a hurtful name on the internet is violence. In fact, the mere mentioning of certain words can have you excommunicated. People now live each day in fear of either being offended or offending someone who is hyper-sensitive. I say bring back the spikes. Ivanna Ershova has a few torture devices of her own.
