Let us say there's a conspiracy. Let us say that one or more conspirators are caught, and one or more have escaped. You have a few hours, or maybe less, to get the captured fella to give up the info. If you're a liberal democracy, but you also need the info, how do you get the person to turn? One way is to torture him (he's hurt in the back and leg, so there is the old "finger in the bullethole" torture cliche). But we're talking true ideologe. If this was a Benedict Arnold you could flash money at his face and he'll switch sides like nobody's business. But if it's a John Wilkes Booth type, what do you have left other than physical pain? You can threaten his family, but would he believe you? Probably not. At least not in what I'm writing. He either won't believe the bluff (and it will be a bluff) or he will simply choose to remain silent because all sacrifice is right with him. The only real issue with him could be arrogance, but even then.... We're talking captors who may suspend habeas corpus but won't go ISIS on his ass. And if they threaten to kill him, they would be met with a yawn. So why should he fear? If you were fighting for what you believe in, held by a government that you hate but one that is not like ISIS or anything like that, and had no fear of dying, what would make YOU turn?
