Jean-Jacques Rousseau

“In any case, frequent punishments are a sign of weakness or slackness in the government. There is no man so bad that he cannot be made good for something. No man should be put to death, even as an example, if he can be left to live without danger to society.”


Jean-Jacques Rousseau, The Social Contract
