Collective punishment

Norman Geras:

Not only is Wright rather selective in what he takes from the Bible, since somewhere in it there will be an injunction against killing the innocent, he himself is innocent of the understanding that guilt is not acquired simply through community membership, much less by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Chris Dillow:
This government is supporting the financial sector to an unprecedented degree, with a £50bn bail-out. It's only right that those who work in that sector should pay in some way for this state aid.
To achieve which, he suggests raising the top rate of tax, but not just for the financial sector.
