Robert Stark talks to commentator Charles Lincoln on slavery and the prison-industrial complex. Topics include:
- How imprisonment replaced slavery
- The 13th Amendment and the exception it made for imprisonment
- Prohibition and laws criminalizing what one does with their body
- American folk heroes that would be criminalized today and how the essence of America was “lawless freedom”
- The Prison Economy
- The creation of the Department of Justice and the Federal Prison System after the Civil War
- US Prison conditions and how they are worse than slavery
- Charles Lincoln’s Prison Experience
Again a very good interview with Charles Lincoln. Im not an american and I have always looked on american society with great horror.
I would suggest to you that you need to break up into lesser and more easily governed societies. The kind of imperial or universal republic you are now, is just very dangerous and creates the inhuman policies such as those of your prison-system.
I would wish for you a kind fall of Rome scenario where are able to create small traditional nations in the ruins of the shattered empire.
