Are there any examples of intentionally inflicted punishment that are not sadistic?
Please list any examples if there are any.
I think every form of punishment involves sadism and hence a human act of “evil” by classic definition, regardless of the good intent behind it. Do you agree? What are your thoughts on this?
Specifically, I’m talking about human forms of punishment for other humans
