Smoke if ya got em! Mencius was an ancient Chinese philosopher. One of his views said that people commit crime because of poverty and insecurity about their survival. Fair enough right? Well, with this view, there are rulers who do nothing about poverty and insecurity, yet they punish the people for committing crimes. To Mencius, this is equivalent to entrapment. Basically, we have naturalist school of thought on crime verses the voluntarism school of thought on crime. Which one do you agree with more, and why?
