On punishment.

What do you think about the death penalty? Or punishment in general? Have you ever read Discipline & Punish? I can’t stop.

I’m against the death penalty, as no government “of the people” deserves the right to take a life any more than an individual person does. As far as punishment in general, our criminal justice system is a punitive and grotesque method of social control that is the single greatest obstacle to our freedom. Too often, those involved in our legal system confuse their duty to protect the people with the authority to punish them.
