The Punishment of the Insane

Extract

Punishment is the positive infliction of suffering as a righteous result of wrong-doing, and as a deterrent from its repetition. But the wrong-doing of the insane is the result of their malady, which produces it either directly through delusion, or indirectly by perverting their moral sense and relaxing their self-control.
