    I believe if someone is a serial killer or rapist etc. then they deserve to die. But I don't think punishment should be physical for smaller offences as it is less useful eg. whipping people that steal or spanking schoolchildren.

    Just my view, corporal punishment doesn't work as well. I would be scared of a death sentence, but not of being slapped in the face or something. There, loss of physical possessions: money or prison time is more effective.

    Immigration - within reason, only if the individual has something to contribute to society and doesn't expect the native population to change their local customs to suit their own, otherwise I'm all in favour of cultural enrichment

    Capital punishment - in situations where there is no doubt as to guilt and when the crime is heinous enough that prison could be dangerous for the individual or rehabilitation will probably not work, and only by (relatively) humane methods like lethal injection

    Legalised prostitution
    Corporal punishment - in small cases, like parents smacking their kids on the arm for being a pain, not in favour of torturing criminals though

    Positive discrimination - that's essentially negative discrimination against the rest of the population
