Crimes of Style
Every criminal shall be fitted with a new conscience, as their old one must be malfunctioning. This will make them feel properly awful if they attempt to commit an immoral or unlawful act; this feeling will spill over to certain acts of buying or appreciating “bad” brands. If, despite these measures, a criminal is caught committing more crimes, they will be fitted with a new moral and aesthetic compass, which will let them better discern what is “right” and also what is “cool.” If trends change, the implant will gradually change the brain.
