Topic:Why do we punish people?
Words by Jonan
The notion of punishment stems from the idea that a rule or law is broken or disobeyed. A law is characterized as a format or guideline we follow in order to work cohesively as a society. The foundation of all life is dictated by a set rule of law, if one follows the set rules outlined in the law, one can be successful in society. Those who are punished are those who blatantly disregard now, they are deemed as “dangerous”. We live in a world where those who are dangerous are contained and therefore punished. The law is sometimes meant to be broken with reason, for with all danger, innovation quickly follows. The norms are broken and with it, what was once deemed dangerous or weird can pave the way for societal growth. Law can be broken and adapted with reason.
