Prisons: A paradise?!? (for liberals) [OR: Eating apples.]



All are treated equally.

Food for everyone.

Free medical care.

Only police has guns.

A liberal paradise!

Watch out what you dream for. Because while you are dreaming high walls are rising around you. Enclosing you in happiness. (like… Sweden?) Which will seem more and more like unhappiness.

Adam and Eve were not in Paradise!

You are! Free to do whatever you wish.

Even eating apples…

Crime with no punishment. A modern axiom waiting for a theory…

Juries in criminal cases typically decide if someone is guilty, then a judge determines a suitable level of punishment. New research confirms that these two separate assessments of guilt and punishment – though related – are calculated in different parts of the brain. In fact, researchers have found that they can disrupt and change one decision without affecting the other by making some subjects receive sham rTMS. (1)

Crime without punishment. Something we WANT.

Now we are trying to find the different areas of the brain working on that, as if the brain is not a whole.

Crime without punishment. We are getting there…

Because our prejudice always drives our science.

Imprisonment. Fear. Rehabilitation. Stupidity.

The Onion – the satirical news site – posted a nice post recently: “15 Years In Environment Of Constant Fear Somehow Fails To Rehabilitate Prisoner”. (1)

It may sound silly.
It may sound stupid.
It may sound funny.

But it is clever.
And to the point.
And not funny at all.

We imprison people.
We put them in hell.
And we wish they wake up in heaven…

One Man spoke of love.
And we just killed him.
How mercifull we were.
We should have put him in jail…

e-Justice. Not!

The great e-commerce boom has had an unexpected side effect – the rise of digital courts.

eBay has long relied on its Resolution Centre to solve petty disagreements between buyers and sellers, and the model has become surprisingly popular among others who do business online. So much so, in fact, that one Swedish company has applied it to all kinds of consumer complaints.

Swiftcourt, based in Lund, allows individuals to file small claims. For one client – who wishes to remain anonymous – Swiftcourt turned out to be very handy. After receiving a second-hand motorbike from an online sale, he realised that it was not as described. It was 450cc, not 540cc, and some parts were missing.

Initially, the seller refused a refund, but the two had previously agreed to use Swiftcourt as an arbitrator in the event of a dispute. A few weeks after the arbitration process was started on the Swiftcourt website, both parties were handed a verdict – the plaintiff’s case was upheld and a full refund following return of the bike was arranged. The seller also had to pay both parties’ Swiftcourt fees. (1)

We want justice.
We believe in higher ideas.
We believe that these ideas can be served on their own.
We still believe in God.
We just don’t know where He is hiding…

Grant legal rights you… god!

Αn animal rights group known as the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP) filed a lawsuit in a New York Supreme Court in an attempt to get a judge to declare that chimpanzees are legal persons and should be freed from captivity. (1)

We give legal rights to animals.

But… who gave us the right to give rights?

Are we gods?

Or is there a God somewhere?
