'Punishment ignores reasons for the behaviour For centuries society has used the blunt stick of punishment as proxy for discipline. But in so doing we misunderstand the meaning of discipline, and we therefore experience mixed results (at best). Punishment means that we make someone pay a price for what they've done. We exact retribution. We believe that this will help them learn a lesson. Punishment is ultimately about hurting. Punishment has some fatal flaws.'
