Joey Guidone Visualizes A Moral Dilemma for Modern Filosofi Magazine

[ Posted: Nov 24, 2020 ]


We look back at an illustration from the past this week, made by Joey Guidone for Swedish magazine, Modern Filosofi (Modern Philosophy). The image is just as topical today as it was then as it deals with the moral issue of punishing people who are already punishing themselves.

Folke Tersman, Philosophy Professor at Uppsala Universitet, questions why it’s acceptable to punish people who are using drugs - for reasons that they are indirectly hurting others - while the consumption of alcohol and sugar goes mostly unpenalized.

Is the self-harm in some way, not punishment enough? We can’t give you the right answer, but what we can do is tell you that Joey did a great job in illustrating this moral dilemma.
