What Coercive Interrogation Methods Get You

Alexander the Great once went to Delphi to seek guidance from the priestess-oracle on a day when it was forbidden for her to speak any prophecies. Alexander seized her and compelled her to speak, and he was satisfied by her message--"My son, you are invincible".
Quoted from G. K. Chesterton "Collected Works", volume 33, p. 40.
