This assignment is about Kant’s theory of Retributivism. Kant thought that you could not allow exceptions to moral positions. And in this case, he is thinking about punishment (for committing a crime.) For Kant, punishment (prison or otherwise) should be governed by two principles:1. People should be punished for the crimes they committed.2. The punishment should be proportionate to the seriousness of the crime.This leads Kant to support the death penalty. Explain how a judge (who follows Kant’s moral reasoning) might justify imposing the death penalty—assuming that the person is clearly guilty of a capital crime with nothing like self-defense or accident involved. Explain his reasoning. (Feel free to agree or disagree, but keep your own position to a short concluding paragraph.
