|요약||"The millions of men and women locked up in jails and prisons do not need to be punished, nor should they be punished. Neither should they be treated as objects whose suffering is used to deter others from committing crimes; nor should they be forced to enter programs whose goal is rehabilitation. It is the prison, not prisoners, that needs to be rehabilitated because it has lost touch with the only morally and practically sound justification for confinement: creating the conditions for the detainee to remove the shackles of alienation and violence through the process of conversion wherein the heart's natural humility and compassion are progressively expanded"--|
