The prison system as an institution was made with the hopes of redirecting the behavior, attitude, and the possibilities of the European citizens of this country. However, after the Civil War, blacks were reintroduced to slavery as many plantations were turned into prisons, and laws were fashioned not as a deterrent but as a tool to incarcerate blacks because they could be legally enslaved, though the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution.

For nearly one hundred years, labor unions have fought and lost the battle against local, state, and federal government to keep manufacturers out of prisons. Today, millions of people are warehoused in prisons and forced to submit to behavior modification programs, psychotic drugs, longer-term isolation, violence, indifference, and the lack of vocational and educational programs. Once they’re released, they’re unable to readjust to the norms of a civil society. So we are faced with these questions: “What can be done?” “What should be done?” and “What can I do?”
