Explain why
an action can be involuntary but still be an action which one has a
choice concerning whether to perform it or not. Illustrate using
examples of compulsion from duress, natural circumstances, and other
obligations. What is the rationale for the law not, in general,
punishing actions which are involuntary? Answer this question from the
perspective of the retributivist, and from the perspective of the
deterrence theorist. For both, sure to consider each type of compulsion
individually, and to take into account the exception that duress which
an agent has brought on himself is not exculpating. Which explanation,
in your opinion, is more plausible?
