Theory: Why do people punish other people?
Vices are those acts by which a man harms himself or his property.

Crimes are those acts by which one man harms the person or property of another.

Why do people punish others? Who can punish? Can children punish adults? Is it OK to punish old people? How do parents punish young children? How do schools punish students? Does the government punish people? How? When? Why?

And then life hit them, everyone makes mistakes, nothing is guaranteed, except..

Re: Theory: Why do people punish other people?
It is now obvious, from the reasons already given, that government would be utterly impracticable, if it were to take cognizance of vices, and punish them as crimes. Every human being has his or her vices. Nearly all men have a great many. And they are of all kinds; physiological, mental, emotional; religious, social, commercial, industrial, economical, &c., &c. If government is to take cognizance of any of these vices, and punish them as crimes, then, to be consistent, it must take cognizance of all, and punish all impartially. The consequence would be, that everybody would be in prison for his or her vices.

Re: Theory: Why do people punish other people?
The estimate that five per cent of northern voters “sympathize with the south”, five per cent more are abolitionists, who are for putting down slavery at all hazards, twenty per cent more are mere sportsmen, who go with the strongest party, whatever it may be; and thus their seventy per cent are, to use his language, “sober, quiet citizens who believe slavery to be an evil, and are willing to see it abolished, but will not consent, for the accomplishment of this purpose, to overthrow the constitution.”

According to this estimate, we have but to prove to the people of the north that slavery is unconstitutional, and ninety five per cet of them will be found on the side of liberty. Does not this prove that spreading the truth in relation to the constitution, is really the only work, which abolitionists have any occasion to do?

It's mostly about dominance.

Disapprobation is usually just an excuse.

Re: Theory: Why do people punish other people?
Good subject OP, my kinda thinking. Here's my Theory that has some pretty concrete results/evidence:

We as the human race are of the same mind/body/spirit, thanks to our ancient ancestors...

...Adam and Eve to start with. We [most of us] are from their bloodline, however strong our bloodline may be within the original tribes of Israel.

Reincarnation has a huge factor in all of this since our souls are constant, whether in purgatory or as a reincarnate.

Having said THAT, I feel it is safe to say that we are still that ONE BODY collectively, and we all have a part in our individual lives.

So without further explination, it is the AGENDA that makes us hostile/malicious towards one another because say, the left leg wants to go a complete different direction than the right, thus creating some major problems within the "body".

Make sense? Sometimes you have to learn to read between the lines, especially when it comes to New Testament.

Oh, and as tradition has it throughout the Old Testament and also in the Islam tradition, when all options have been spent, Physical Force is usually the most effective.
