Pojman argues that we should strive to form a world in which "the virtuous are rewarded and the vicious punished in proportion to their relative deserts." Do you agree with Pojman that we deserve what we earn, or do you see problems with his stance? Form a cohesive, well-argued three-page paper in which you explore this question. Use specific examples, and support your arguments.

    I agree. There should be consequences for actions, so that people cannot do whatever they want. The world would be in total chaos if everyone did what they wanted to when they wanted to. What do you think?

    From a psychological standpoint, it would make sense. People tend to repeat actions that lead to rewards and avoid actions that (only) lead to punishment. However, in real life, some vicious acts are immediately rewarded with the punishment only coming after a significant delay, as in our legal system.
