Punição e Violência

Nietzche said that the history of the world is the ultimate refutation of the notion that there is a moral order in the universe. I am simply paraphrasing him by observing that history is the ultimate refutation oh the theory that punishment will prevent or deter the violence. On the contrary, punishment is the most powerful stimulus of violence that we have yet discovered. -- by James Gilligan
