There. Now we can continue.
So, does anybody see re-programming of nasty criminals and sociopaths
into law-abiding and caring people, pillars of society, in the cards?
Or will the mediaeval methods of incarcenation, torture, and death
continue to be used against the social problem of crime? It seems such
a waste of resources. Ah, well..
Ross A. Finlayson <firstname.lastname@example.org> continued unabated, however:
|You say some felons some are not citizens, do you say they are not human?

Excellent rhetoric. Postulate a falsehood, then attack your opponent using it.
You have not considered a political career?
I wish to congratulate you. Your call for the mediaeval dungeon method
really hit the spot:
Reprogramming except in the context of regular education through trade skill and
literary learning and punishments for violent behavior, should not be a focus. It
sounds too cavalier to apply your meat rules to the brains of these prisoners.
If, after valid psychological examination in a psychologically healthy environment, it
is determined a mild sedative will help the prisoner cope with his violence issues, then
that may be prescribed.
In this thread I permuted the subject to "No Parole for Federales" to suggest to apply
the cane to them.
Unfortunately, I fail to see the romance in it. In fact, as a transhumanist,
I _insist_ on more modern and civilized methods. Why should your obsolescent
correctional methods be allowed to stop the market for better, more efficient,
and cheaper correctional methods?
Welcome back to the Institute, Alex.
