Paul Adams on Crime

 

 


Re-educate people instead of punishing them more

Q: Do you support or oppose the policy, "Stricter punishment reduces crime"?

A: I don't believe we have evolved enough spiritually as a species. We need to re-educate people not punish them more. An African tribe, so I am told, will sequester a member who has violated the tribe's rules in a camp surrounded by the elders who will, for two weeks, remind him of all his kind acts and good deeds and accomplishments since he was a child, in order to re-instill in him a desire to behave civilly. We need that kind of empathy for those who lose their way.
