Civilisation? A poem by an un named Prision Gaurd





"We want them to have self-worth...
so we take or destroy what they have of value.

We want them to be responsible...so we take away all responsibility.
We want them to be part of the community...
so we isolate them from our community.

We went them to be positive and constructive...
so we degrade them and make them useless.

We want them to be trustworthy...
so we put them where there is no trust.

We want them to be non-violent...
so we put them where violence is all around them.

We want them to be kind and loving people...
so we subject them to hatred and cruelty.

We want them to quit being the tough guy...
so we put them where the tough guy is respected.

We want them to stop hanging around losers...
so we put all the losers in the state under one roof.

We want them to quit exploiting us...
so we put them where they exploit each other.

We want them to take control of their lives, own their own problems, and quit being a parasite...
so we make them totally dependent on us."

--by an unnamed prison guard
