Was thinking of ways I could do something to ‘help’ in a way. I think maybe the idea of ‘helping’ is a little vague. Nevertheless something positive for the world.
I’ve looked at Amnesty International’s letter writing pages. I’ve been thinking about writing some letters to political prisoners.
I have some issues with some of the causes Amnesty supports but overall I think it’s good.
I’m kind of a believer in either radical prison reform or even abolition. I’m not sure we can ever be a free society whilst the state has the power to incarcerate us. That said I think it’s complicated. I think prisons could probably be done better if they are going to be done at all. The craziness of the prison system in the USA for example where 2-3% of the population are incarcerated in some way.
