It's in theory, and theory doesn't hold in practice. If there is only one guard watching and two bad events happening at teh same time, then at least one of the prisoners won't be punished hence breaking the rule of equality. That being broken, because everyone will think that they won't be trated the same will try their luck as they can.
That is the flip side of it. However, it has to be applied to how useful a Panopticon is as a metaphor for describing the reconstitution of power and control as a consequence of the information technology revolution?
There is also the flip side that some may get away for a while being bad but eventually they will be caught and punished hence making them not wish to be caught again when they can't guarentee themselves saftey from being caught in the near future.
