Imprisonment to preclude criminal acts is sometimes justified

Hulme Crescents (Wilson & Wormersley, 1972)

Dalrymple writes that on the whole, he is

against the practice of preventive detention, as being the weapon of authoritarianism.

However, he strongly favours preventive detention

in the case of graduates of French or British architecture schools.

These people, he says,

should be incarcerated immediately on graduation.

Why? Because

it is the only way to preserve what is left of the material fabric of civilised urban life.
