Prison Abolition and dealing with "The Dangerous Few"
I found this super compelling and it resolves my only holdout argument against prison abolition.
@savanni Oh Avery Adler is great. Thanks for linking this.
First I'd heard of her. I got the information from a newsletter that @anthoknees (Birdsite) sends out.
@savanni I'm familiar with her mostly from her tabletop games, but this sort of philosophical bent and, uh… quality(?) is unsurprising given some of the themes she's dealt with in her games.
@savanni that was written so straight forward and I ended up just thinking, yeh, she's right. Thanks for sharing.
@savanni thank you for sharing this!
TBH I will probably always have uneasy feelings about "What will we do with people who are deeply, genuinely evil" due to personal experience, but I still agree with Alder. Just... with the caveat that if men can continue to use violence against us successfully, they will continue to subjugate us. Healing is the best method but it can't be the only one.
But yeah, that said, fuck cops and prisons and all that - those are just more tools of subjugation.
@savanni whoops silly me, Alder got to that already. Serves me right for posting without finishing the thread. ❤️
@savanni I just spent hooours on this TL and I'm so glad I did. Thank you for the link!
@savanni One thing we could do about serial killers is stop giving them tanks and bombers and endless war
