former attica warden james conway visits the nordic prison "norden" to see how the nordic prison system deals with its convicted criminals.what he finds is such a vivid contrast to how america deals with its own criminals.
the numbers are pretty staggering in relation to recidivism and percentage of incarcerated individuals.appears the nordic method may possibly be,not only more humane but more successful.
this should be non-controversial.
the milgram experiment revealed that if you treat people likes animals,they will soon behave like animals.each quickly adopting the roles of aggressor and victim..with surprising ease.
this should make us all very uncomfortable.
