Alexander Lee reminds us of Thomas Paine’s wisdom – something I’m fearful we ae short of at the moment.

Similarly, since a shared goodness underpinned liberty itself, punishment must not further corrupt the fallen, but augment their better nature so that they might respect and enjoy freedom the better.
