"Torture Shrinks"

American Psychological Association says psychologists should stop participating in abusive interrogations. Good for them. On some level, it’s sad that it took them this long. On another level, it’s just so weird that they even need to address this in the first place that you can see how it might have taken a while to snap into action. Four years ago, I never would have guessed that the US government’s officially sanctioned systematic use of torture was going to be a recurring topic in my political commentary. I guess I was naive, but I think it was naive in a good way.
