A reader did a search of this site looking for the phrase "torture works". Graeber was the first person I met who argued that. He said the reason there was so little terrorism in the USSR during the Afghanistan war was that when the Soviets caught a suspect they'd give him a phone and tell him to call his mother. She'd answer the phone and say there was a man in her house. He laughed when he told that one. David liked stories.
