Example text

Utility suggests the core test to apply to a distribution is one that ‘work[s] to achieve maximum possible satisfaction of the preferences 12 A generally accepted list of the traditional canon includes: to each according to his need, to each according to his merits, to each according to his productivity, to each according to his abilities, to each according to his efforts, to each according to his needs, to each according to his rank or status, to each according to supply and demand, to each according to his right or legal entitlement and to each according to the greater good of the greater number (Spader 1988: 590).

But if the assumed response to remedy this social wrong is to again attempt to restore a preexisting equilibrium, this will do no more than restore preexisting imbalances (returning the disadvantaged to their disadvantage, the privileged to their privilege). It will not act to recreate any sort of renewed just balance without some form of fundamental social structure rebalancing. In the light of the infeasibility of rebalancing, the less ambitious alternative is for the redistribution of benefits and burdens following (criminal) wrongdoing to focus not on recreating equilibrium, but on activating ‘flows’ of benefits and burdens in order to achieve certain stated aims.

The unworkability that Braithwaite and Pettit (1990) and others see with this conceptualization is that the core burden which guarantees the right (the self-restraint that comes from being law-abiding in the first place) is not really a burden at all for most people. Upholding the guarantee of restraint offers ‘no actual inconvenience in its adherence for the bulk of the population’ (Braithwaite and Pettit 1990: 158). In the same way, the benefit acquired by the offender (what is his added freedom or new, wider, unrestricted liberty) is not something truly seen as advantageous to most people.
