Man, Talk about a Downer

From Grist’s Gristmill

The United States is a confused place, traumatized by war, confused by its media, underserved by its health care system, insecure economically, arrogant in its policies, and unsure of its identity. The country as a whole is internalizing the inner climate of so many, and this gnawing rise of anomie is eating away at the core.
Paul Hawken

Good thing none of that applies to our criminal justice [sic] process and corrections sentencing. Or that this doesn’t:

"Sometimes you do things simply because you know how to."
The Economist
