Help us all you who are well—disposed and willing to assist lend your aid in the endeavour to do away with the concept of punishment which has swept over the whole world!  No weed is more harmful than this!  It is not only to the consequences of our actions that this concept has been applied—and how horrible and senseless it is to confuse cause and effect with cause and punishment!  but worse has followed: the purely chance character of events has been robbed of its innocence by this infamous manner of interpreting the concept of punishment.  Indeed they have even pushed their folly to such extremes that they would have us look upon existence itself as a punishment—from which it would appear that the education of mankind had to date been guided by the fantasies of gaolers and hangmen.
