The Compunction Statement is repeated by a severed employee who has been sent to the Break Room for an unconscionable infraction. It is meant to elicit remorse but since it is written with awkward and self-loathing words, it is an effective form of torture. The security person administering this punishment can register the sincerity of the employee by reading a biofeedback printout; the biometrics are taken from the employee's hands which slot into special hand-shaped depressions in the table.
The employee typically must read the statement many times before saying it with a satisfactory amount of remorse.
Forgive me for the harm I have caused this world. None may atone for my actions but me and only in me shall their stain live on. I am thankful to have been caught, my fall cut short by those with wizened hands. All I can be is sorry, and that is all I am.
