41 Tomes goes on to make an even more critical point: the legit- Introduction xlvii imacy accorded the asylum lowered the standard of behavior considered sufficiently troublesome to justify confinement. "The level of violence, disruptiveness, or intellectual impairment deemed necessary to merit confinement had certainly fallen since the eighteenth century.

It was a grand and almost Utopian vision, one that sought to ensure the safety of the republic and promote its glory. Michael Ignatieff, analyzing the origins of prisons in England, and Andrew Scull and Robert Castel, analyzing the origins of insane asylums, one in England and the other in France, each put their own gloss on this approach, but all of them link the design and popularity of the asylum to a wider societal mission, an effort to restore stability where disorganization seemed ram pant.
33 Others attribute more importance to the Quaker or the Methodist vision. But no one contends that good intentions are irrelevant— only that taken alone, they are not sufficient to account for the process of change. Without an appreciation of the social crisis that under lay the asylum movement, one cannot account for the peculiar design that was incorporated into all of the asylums, whether they served the insane, the criminal, the delinquent, or the poor. The shared emphasis on order and regularity, the insistence on uniformity and punctuality, the devotion to steady labor and habits of discipline, are most persuasively explained by linking the values that the asylum sought to inculcate with this larger social agenda.
