As we know now, there are so much crime happen in the world. The crime frequency always increase year by year. The reason why this thing can grow simply because the gov. still believe in old way that stick are better than carrot. What I mean by stick in here is punishment that given to the criminal that doing crime. What I mean by carrot in here is the wise action to give reward to the people or society who doing a good things. Why the way gov run the law is very urgent?, because law is created to prevent something bad that might be happen in the future. If gov still run the law like now, the crime will never decrease, the criminals alwas increase. Why these carrot will be work?, simply because when human doing somenthing, they usually want another people appreciate what they've done. By giving reward to people who doing a good thing, this is our way to appreciate these people, this is what we should do to decrease the crime, this is what we missed from thousand years ago. Why this solution can decrease the crime?,the first because the nature of human, human like to competeing with others. When some people got reward when they doing good, it would make the others want to get it too and also doing good. The second because the best way to take care society are with love, not fury. We can not fight fire with fire, it only make the fire grown bigger and at the end, it will only burnt your self.

I disagree with my opponent. The carrot and the stick referance refers to promising things to motivate people, promising things they will never get. Imagine a person riding a donkey with a carrot on the end of a stick tjat he is constantly chasing, so the rider can get the donkey to carry him, wherever he wants.

In this scenario, the one the metaphor came from, the stick is more important than the carrot, because the donkey never gets the carrot. A fake carrot can be put on the end, and if the donkey ever realizes rhat he is not getting the carrot, he can be beatvinto submission with the stick
