Though in The UK the EU tried very hard to 'Metricate' the UK, and turned it into an Imperial-Metric society. In the UK,… you buy fuel in Litres, but refer to a car in Miles to the Gallon (MPG). Official recordings must be in Kilograms but people use Stone and Pounds. You can buy loose food in Pounds and Ounces as well as Metric. Only Roadsigns, and Draught Beer can be measured in Imperial, Miles and Pints. Milk is still sold by the pint.

Capitalism is more a system of economy, that to some extent is used almost everywhere in the world. It's the principle that private owned things make money. Of course the modern capitalist state would only guarantee the rights to have such private property and the state itself has some property, but… the principle of capitalism (sadly) remains in most parts of the world. I'm not an expert on this field but that is my knowledge, feel free to counterargument. (MORE)

It's worth pointing out that the American use of the term, 'English System', is somewhat of a misnomer, and the term ' US Customary ' would be better. This is because there are a number of differences between the old British 'Imperial System' and what Americans generally refer to as the 'English Sys…tem'. For example, the US gallon and the US ton are different from the Imperial gallon and the Imperial ton. Some US units are practically unheard of in the UK (e.g. 'circular mils'!). There are differences, too, in the US and Imperial units used to measure 'weight' and 'mass'. But to answer the question, the US is an obvious user of the so-called 'English System', although it uses SI for trade purposes and more. In Britain, science, engineering, commerce, and education, use the SI system, although road signs are still in miles, and fuel consumption is in miles per gallon (a different gallon that is used in the US -hence, my first paragraph!). In everyday life, many British people still think in 'feet and inches', or in 'pounds' and, in some cases, 'Fahrenheit' (God knows why!) -but this is mainly confined to the older generation who were brought up on the Imperial system, not to mention 'pounds, shillings, and pence'!!

The death penalty offers a number of features which appeal to authoritarian governments. These are: 1. The death penalty is considered to be an effective deterrant to crime, since people don't want to die. 2. Provided there is no lengthy appeals process, it is much cheaper to kill people than it… is to imprison them. 3. Once a person is dead, you can be certain that they will never commit any more crimes. Another View: Because, in a democracy, it is the will of the people to change or eliminate laws with which a majority do not agree. Therefore, except in totalitarian countries (in which include Socialist-leaning nations) whose governmental bodies have usurped legitimate authority, it still widely exists. (MORE)

The United States used some methods that have been called torture tactics at Guantanamo Bay to gain "vital info" from terrorists after the 9/11 attacks and continuing pursuit of other terrorists planning to harm the US or US assets and its citizens at home or abroad. However, none of the tactics res…ulted in death or significant physical harm. Most of the time, the tactics were psychological in nature, with the premise that the worst torture imaginable is simply the fear of dying or the fear of what might come next . So captors might use sleep deprivation, food deprivation, restricted mobility / movement, changed lighting (total darkness or total bright light for hours or days on end), and verbal threat or intimidation of what might happen if the prisoner does not give the desired information. The goal of "torture" at Guantanamo was not to kill the prisoner, but to solicit information by convincing the prisoner that they would do better for themselves to give up the information rather than to endure more unpleasant psychological torture. But, the countries which have harbored terrorists, like Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, regularly use measures and tactics which can be called torture. Many non-democratic governments run by sole leadership within a "family", corrupt governments, or by sects attempting to over throw a violent leadership also use torture. Often, torture does not end until the victim dies. In these countries, the leadership often controls citizens by exacting death as the "price" for committing any act deemed unlawful, even if the laws restrict or eliminate basic civil rights. For example, beheading in some countries IS the torture -- it is an ever-constant threat during daily life. Vietnam used torture on US Servicemen captured and held as POWs. Some argue that many Asian countries with closed governments torture their citizens. (MORE)
