Why do we love punishment so much?

Danny Silk

Hey everyone! This is the 3rd week of our vlog series on Unpunishable. I subtitled the book “Ending Our Love Affair with Punishment” to be provocative. No one “loves” punishment, do they? Well, as I explain in Chapter 3 of the book, it’s not so much that we love punishment as that we are addicted to it. This addiction started back in the Garden of Eden, where humanity was deceived into taking on the fatal project of trying to be our own gods and be in control. Watch the vlog to learn more about how listening to the serpent brought us into a distorted reality where we learned to see fear and punishment as necessary tools to stay in control. You can also get the book here 🙂
