Another Statist Mess that Humanity Will Unravel
These infographics come from http://infographicworld.com, not a bad source for innovatively packaged information. I had no idea the practice of solitarily confining prisoners was so widespread. Another good reason to end the nightmare of big corporate global government in as quick and just a manner as possible… because guess who’re going to be the prime candidates for such treatment if the Cabal wins? For sure. Libertarians of all stripes, even people who once had a friend who voted Libertarian, which is most of the population. Individualists will not be tolerated in the New World Order. So global collectivists must be hunted down and segregated into gilded, ant-farming, sand-pounding work colonies as soon as possible—but not solitary… unless perhaps they were presidents and dictators. — Ed.

Just another casual casualty of the drug war
by Brian Wright
Brian Wright’s first book, New Pilgrim Chronicles, is the story of one man’s coming to the Free State of New Hampshire to help create more liberty everywhere. In contrast, Wright’s second political monograph recounts his experience with the “Drug Prohibition System (DPS);” it’s a true drug war story where an ordinary middle-class guy’s liberty is suspended for two grueling weeks by the harsh, senseless prosecutocratic world of prison-planet lite. Brian decided to use this dire personal experience—considerably more benign than what the poor or minorities are typically subjected to—to speak out, for those who have no voice, against the cruel, unusual system.

Low-key, anti-Prison-Planet film will shake you
Professor Walter Vale: [Upon learning Tarek has been deported… from the facility in Queens]
Guard: He is no longer with us.
Walter: Was he moved to another facility, to another state?
Guard: All I know.
Walter: Would you please find someone who does know?
Guard: Hold on.
Walter: Appreciate it. Thank you, thank you very much.
Guard: He’s been removed.
Walter: Removed to where?
Walter: Deported when?
Guard: Deported this morning.
Walter: No, how can that be? Is there uh, um, any way that I can contact him?
Guard: I don’t think so.
Walter: You don’t think so. What kind of an answer is that?
Guard: I’m sorry, sir, that’s all the information I have. Now, please step away from the window. You can contact IC if you want to, number’s on the wall. Now, step away from the window. Sir, for the last time, step away from the window.
Walter: [Walking away, then slowly coming back, tremor in his voice, tears of anger and pain in his eyes] You can’t just take people away like that, do you hear me? He was a good man. A good person. It’s not fair. We are not just helpless children. He had a life. Do you hear me? I mean, do you hear me? What’s the matter with you? Continue reading
Peru puts new wrinkle on Incarceration Planet
by Bo Keeley
Take a virtual tour of the infamous Lurigancho Lima prison before visiting Peru as a tourist. Watch 50,000 cans of beer tumble off a truck into the prison yard courtesy of the warden who takes a 25-cent commission, try your luck at the casinos, dance shirtless in the disco, pretty girls, drugs, attend church, get a haircut, 12 restaurants run by inmates, a multiple-language library, private rooms and condos, and each of the 300 foreign inmates has a laptop WiFi to run world drug operations on Skype or, as my friend Hank avows, to stay in touch back home.
