What makes beheading seem so barbarous?

Asked by janbb (49256points) September 3rd, 2014

Many people are killed every day but there is something that feels so inhuman and horrifying about beheading that it stuns us. I feel that way but wonder what it is about this particular method of murder that is so shocking. It feels like a reversion to a darker part of our history as a species. What are your thoughts?
