Punishment is a reasoned and rational sanction for misbehavior, meant to instruct the guilty party in the error of their ways and to discourage further misbehavior. Punishment is most often dealt out by parents to their children or by the state to criminals.

Gandhi asked,

Do you fight to change things, or do you fight to punish?[1]
