Nemmerle;4054388To various degrees. It's not the only function prison performs but it's a large one. Society has to tell people where the line is by being rather violent towards those who cross that line but at the same time it needs to stop you identifying too closely with the person that it's being violent towards since the entire point is to draw a line between that person and the rest of society.
Very well said. I agree!
