Crime Reduction

Diogenes Laertius, Lives of the Philosophers 1.59 (Life of Solon; tr. R.D. Hicks):
Asked how crime could be diminished most effectively, he replied, "Make it bring about as much resentment in those who are not its victims as in those who are."

πῶς τε ἥκιστ᾿ ἂν ἀδικοῖεν οἱ ἄνθρωποι, "εἰ ὁμοίως," ἔφη, "ἄχθοιντο τοῖς ἀδικουμένοις οἱ μὴ ἀδικούμενοι."
