How can we prevent our norms for atonement from becoming degrading and oppressive? We all have had positive experiences of the making of amends that may be contrasted with the horrors of the Magdalen asylums. Heartfelt apologies are made and accepted every day. A well-chosen gift can dissolve resentment. 66 Truth telling, the acknowledgment of wrongdoing, and apology are coming to be political tools of significance and promise. When performed well and received in the right spirit, acts of atonement serve the ends of justice and peace, leaving both wrongdoers and victims feeling whole again.

Furthermore, when an element of suffering is present in such actions, it is far from obvious that this is the source of their value as a response to wrongdoing. In the aftermath of wrongdoing, there are usually many goods worth pursuing. The victim may have been harmed financially or physically as a result of one’s misdeed and may continue to suffer from hurt pride, alienation, or self-doubt. In light of such problems, wrongdoers who express their sense of guilt through the single-minded pursuit of their own suffering appear shortsighted and self-absorbed.

57 The state, then, seems to have an obligation to condemn criminal wrongdoing. Moral wrongdoers have a similar obligation to condemn their own wrongful actions. As I have argued, a proper commitment to morality and an honest and realistic appraisal of their relationship to it leads the wrongdoers to feel guilty. If the agents are to retain their commitment to morality at this point rather than rejecting morality in a misguided effort to defend themselves from their own negative judgment, they must condemn their own actions.
