When people attain immortality - prison sentences will have to be changed, correct?
Death will become increasingly horrible as our lives lengthen - ending someone’s life 50 years early is terrible, but not as cruel as obliterating an entity that could live forever.
Additionally, putting someone in jail today for the rest of their life - is harsh, of course, because it’s taking away decades of their life.
But… if the criminal is going to live forever…
...and courts decide to exclude them from society for thousands of years...
that’s far too severe - unspeakably cruel..
Will entirely different penalties need to be created, if the extension of human lifespan alters our value of time?
