And it is because of this difference of attitude that our prisons are so much less successful in curing criminal tendencies than our hospitals are in curing disease.

“The damage has been done and this machine
has begun, on a path of destruction
We need the medicine to reverse
whats been done, before this disease
has destroyed everything we know
