    "Fair" punishment

    I never considered this a complex question until recently. I wanted to put it into generic terms and see what kind of responses I got but do it in terms that was a little less loaded. This is largely a social science question regarding concepts like surplus, deprivation, etc.

    This is simply an opinion poll. The boys are the same in each scenario, and you can assume that they misbehaved in the same manner. The number of toys never change. The only thing that changes is the cost of punishment. Choose the one you feel treats both boys with the same degree of punishment and maybe explain why.

    Not only is it less loaded, I'd suggest it's a complete blank. Care to ask a question?

    Nothing complex about it. This has no relationship to adults. If the children are to deprived of toys, then they are deprived of toys. The purpose in your description is "punishment" - not an exercise in "fairness," capitalism or socialism. It is not a social question at all, it is a parenting question and they're children.

    Yes, everyone can see the poll question, but no one knows why their toys are relevant to the question or what the boys actually did.
