universalequalityisinevitable:

Dr. James Gilligan on crime, revenge, and punishment, from this video.

"We often think of crime and punishment… as being opposites of each other… Our usual response to crime is to punish it… but what does ‘punishment’ mean? ‘Punishment’ comes from Greek and Latin words that mean ‘revenge.’ Punishment is the infliction of pain for purposes of revenge–pure and simple.  Throughout history, there has been a very strong human compulsion to make the punishment fit the crime, often by being as similar to the crime as possible. In other words, whatever the violent offender did to somebody else is to be done to the violent offender. So, the criminal law just imitates the crime. If all we do when people commit crimes is punish them, we’re simply participating in an endless cycle of revenge, and counter-revenge, and counter-counter-revenge, and so on. We learn nothing. The criminals only learn that revenge is a good thing, and revenge is what the powerful do to the weak.”
