Compartmentalizing Canada's Criminal Complicity

What's the best way to wall off the personal revulsion I'm experiencing about financing a government that condones the torture of prisoners?

Perhaps Jack Layton knows. He and the NDP seem to have reached a comfortably compartmentalized equilibrium about supporting the Conservatives on some things while remaining able to say they oppose them on others.

I just don't know how not to be entirely repulsed by a government that has turned Canada into a nation that condones the torture of prisoners.

And I am deeply, deeply conflicted about paying for this government to violate international law.

Could someone ask Jack how he does it and get him to tell me.
