The article provides information on the system of punishment on crimes committed from minor to major. The elements of crimes are accordingly subjected to the law which constitutes the grounds outlined for the crime committed. Obviously, actions and justifications done in response to such illegal offenses are noted necessary in order to solve the problems pertaining to inequality. In conjunction with this, several relative approaches including the absence of moral luck, the fact that attempted crime is done with intention and substantial steps, and the event is only substantial if done with absolute intention are likewise discussed and emphasized.
