Ian Kerr on Behavior - Dictionary of Arguments

Morozov I 194
Behavior/criminalisation/Ian Kerr/Morozov: One (...) concern is that our personal characters become victims of the ruthless increases in efficiency introduced by SCP (situational crime prevention). For example, the Canadian legal philosopher Ian Kerr warns of the dangers associated with the search for the "automation of human virtue", which he calls "the programming of people who do the right thing", by restricting and in some cases completely eliminating moral behaviour through technology rather than ethics or law.(1) (See also Predictive Policing/Morozov).
