BreakPoint | Prescription for Tolerance

BreakPoint Prescription for Tolerance

The linked article from Break Point is another example of how when government rejects moral boundaries it is not increasing freedom. It is making us less free when freedom is considered in the global sense.

C.S. Lewis was very much opposed to the idea of "treating" criminals as though their choices to commit crimes were a disease. Such "treatment" never ends and has no real limits once the state has decided the end justifies the means. By contrast, retributive and deterrent punishment are meant to "fit the crime" and tend to have inherent limits.
