I Worked in a Private Prison—They Are a Cancer on American Society
Americans enjoy freedoms not heard of in other countries. We have freedoms of speech, expression, and a free press. We are able to openly oppose our leaders and even insult them without fear of reproach. For instance, if I wanted to call America’s current leader a sentient Cheeto lacking a moral compass or ideology other than the pursuit of ego-boosting wealth and superficial pleasures with all the intelligence of a poorly-trained chihuahua, I am free to do so.
America is great, isn’t it? However, one might be surprised to learn that the country with all these freedoms also incarcerates more than any country on earth — and it’s not even close.
