We don’t just have the world’s largest prison population per
capita, we blow every other country out of the water. Amazing isn’t it?
Amazing we as Americans are told constantly we are the most free, most advanced,
and most civilized society. Lady liberty, oh miss high-and-mighty!
Oddly enough, China, a country ruled and looked at as mostly
Authoritarian takes 7th place in the world in incarceration rate. Which of
course makes you wonder, what the hell is going on in America? Are we just a
society of misfits, rabble-rousers, and outright criminals? Or, is it something
The answer may surprise you.
We are in fact a society of criminals. Felons walking the
streets, and living next door to you. You send you children to play at their
felonious friend’s home, where they are under the supervision of criminal
parents. OK, so putting it like that gives you an altered perspective, but it is
no less true. Though, the reason the average American commits an average of 3
felonies a day, according to
Harvey Silvergate, a Boston-based Civil liberties lawyer, is simply
due to the profound, massively oppressive laws we have been engulfed in.
Consequently, we commit most of these crimes without even knowing it.
As for the real criminals of society, and/or drug offenders
both violent and nonviolent, federal mandatory minimum sentencing has ensured
the appetite of the prison industrial complex is well fed.
Americans really are a society of mostly good people, although
society is degenerating rapidly as empire’s tend to do, but on paper and in the
eyes of the swollen establishment, we are criminals. Hard not to be with
millions of statutory crimes, and arbitrary man-made laws.
Peep the infographic below and prepare to become
wide-eyed and well-informed. There is one hell of a story that reeks of
unfortunate irony that awaits below.
