Abstract:     
The purpose of this article is mainly to explore some issues of social and political philosophy in order to raise a puzzle for the retributive and moral education theories of punishment. The basic puzzle is this: Are these theories of punishment compatible with a defensible political theory of the state. Encased in many of the contemporary defenders of retributive and moral education theories of punishment is a social and political viewpoint that wavers between liberal and libertarianism. These cannot be consistent and are not consistent.
