This is only for my followers.

I am making this book free for people to read on my website for the next week. Then I'll take it down.

(I have the legal right to do this. Will explain . . .)

Why am I doing this?

Because . . .


. . . it will help you all understand my squeamishness about punishment in general, particularly punishment inflicted by the government.

Also it will help you all study for the criminal law portion of the Twitter Bar Exam.

This book was published in 2014 by Harcourt Houghton Mifflin.

It's basically a course in criminal law for middle and high school readers.

The rights reverted back to me, which means I can make it free if I want to.

Please don't copy it!!

It's only for you.

I was inspired to make the book available because of this discussion⤵️

Oh also:

The PDF version I uploaded might not be the final published version.

So it's possible you may find an error or two.

If so, don't worry about.

You see, I have an ulterior motive.
Now I'll have a bunch of you pushing back against calls for punishment-- or at least urging caution.

Punishment is the deliberate infliction of pain. It is always morally problematic and must never be done in anger.
