"Punitive measures whether administered by police,
spouses or parents have well-known standard effects:
(1) escape -- education has its own name for that: truancy,
(2) counterattack -- vandalism on schools and attacks on
(3) apathy -- a sullen do-nothing withdrawal. The more
the punishment, the more serious the by-products."
