VISIONS FOR PRISONS
IT IS TIME TO END THE WAR ON DRUGS AND TRANSFORM OUR ARCANE AND MEDIEVAL PRISON SYSTEM
WE CAN DO MUCH BETTER AND WE MUST!!
Here in America we incarcerate over 2.3 million people many of them are young inner
city youth who are nonviolent drug offenders... we have created massive prison industry
where hundreds of thousands of young people become criminalized... an undeniable
fact which is costing society billions of dollars.. Our prisons are in great need
of comprehensive reform ...
It is time get serious about rehabiltation..It is essential that the reformed prison
system promotes respect, compassion, and forgiveness towards those who have transgressed
arcane, autocratic drug laws... Rather than warehousing our youth, lets implement
a healing approach toward these inmates andhelp transform these energetic young “criminals’
into healthy responsible engaged young citizens by providing them with meaningful
community service work...
There is plenty to do in this rapidly approaching age of Ecological Awareness..Lets
create community gardens..Plant hundreds of millions of fruit bearing trees..as well
as re-mineralizing the soil so that we can assure future generations healthy, vital
food..it is time to graduate from punitive reptilian brain thinking..from punishment
to compassion ..It is time to implement enlightened programs which empower individuals
to actualize their highest potential ...Lets turn our prisons into Human Ecology
Centers and provide state of the art educational programs and detoxification programs..
Through this educational reformation we will provide the extraordinary opportunity
for our young people and other members of society to heal themselves while constuctively
contributing to their respective communities..
