The article presents a thought experiment about a slightly queer planet of Losoria. On this planet, responsibility for certain types of crime is assigned in a completely random manner. The experiment is designed to strengthen our moral intuitions advocating the principle of control in the dispute over so-called moral luck. In addition, it stimulates reflection on non-moral rationales for differentiating criminal responsibility for the consequences of actions beyond the subject’s control. The author points out that a possible solution to some of the aporias arising from the result luck is to adopt restorative justice as a form of rationalizing of punishment.
