America leads the world in both the number and percentage of its citizens in prison, and it has one of the highest rates of violence in the world. The causes of that are numerous, but the main reason why it has gotten so bad is not generally known, or acknowledged. Crime and violence in a society are indicators of a failed government, and one of the indicators that a government is failing its people is when it refuses to establish fairness, equity and justice for all. Instead, a failed government simply establishes a more rigid and harsh criminal justice system, enlarges and strengthens its police forces, and builds bigger and more punitive prisons. That's what America has done since 1982 and during the last 30 years, while at the same time enabling the wealthiest few to establish an even more unfair, more inequitable, and more unjust political and economic system.
