B.1. Ch.6.

If the statement of Filangieri is
correct, there were constantly in the state
prisons of Naples more than 40 forty thousand
idle prisoners. What an immense loss of
productive power! The largest manufacturing
town in England scarcely employs a greater
number of workmen.

By the military laws of most Countries
deserters are still condemned to death. It
costs little to shoot as a man. But every
thing which he might be made to produce
is lost; – and to supply his place a productive
labourer must be converted into an
unproductive one.

VII. Subserventy Subserviency to reformation.

All punishment has a certain tendency
to deter from the commission of offences: but
if the delinquent, after he has been punished
is only res deterred by fear from the repetition
of his offence, he is not reformed. Reformation
implies a change of character and moral
dispositions.

Hence those punishments which are calculated
to weaken the seductive, and to strengthen, the preserving
motives deserved have an advantage over all others
with respect to those offences to which they can
be applied.

There are other punishments which have
an opposite tendency & which serve to render those
who undergo them stil1 more vicious. Punishments
