Crime es­ca­la­tion

Fiji Sun - - Comments - Joan McGoon, Nadi

As the rate of crime and day­light rob­bery es­ca­lates, many ask them­selves why or how is this hap­pen­ing. Thomas More from his book, ‘Utopia’ wraps it up in a nut­shell:

“For if you suf­fer your peo­ple to be ill-ed­u­cated, and their man­ners to be cor­rupted from their in­fancy, and then pun­ish them for those crimes to which their first ed­u­ca­tion dis­posed them, wha­telse is to be con­cluded from this, but that you first make thieves and then pun­ish them”.
