text The Need to Abolish the Prison System - by Steve Martinot
An argument for the abolition of the prison system based on political and ethical grounds rather than sociological. The sociological arguments are mainly that prisons don't work, that is, they don't do the job for which they were designed. That assumes a value for their purpose.

The disaster of the 20th century must be understood as a crisis of modern civilization, not as an economic crisis.
