Prisons

filed under: @ 09:25:58 by 7colors

The land of the free has become the land of the jailed. Between 1973 and 2000 the rate of incarceration in the United States more than quadrupled. There are more people behind bars (literally and proportionally) than any time in American history. One in every 32 adults is currently on probation, in jail or prison, or on parole. There are more prisoners than farmers. There are more prisoners than there are Lutherans. There are more prisoners than there are Native Americans.

Weaning America off prison

As long as there will be the need to build prisons and fill them up with people, the worldwide human society will always be a primitive example of incapacity to recognize our single responsability towards each other. A society that still somehow produces people that end up, for whatever reason, doing something damaging for others and that as the only proposed solution proceeds to arrest and lock them up, turning them even worse in most cases, is a sorry instance of what it should be in the 21st century.
