“….calling for government investment in jobs, education, housing, health care — all the elements that are required for a productive and violence-free life….”
She is calling for socialism/communism and to march towards a New World Order.
Prisons do need to be reformed. They certainly are not biblical. i.e. based on restitution.
The solution is not socialism BUT liberty and freedom. Her solution sounds as if the global elites have been whispering in her ear. This situation is very much like the “abolitionists in 1865. Freeing slaves was the right thing to do BUT look deeper and you see that abolitionists were socialist and funded by the elites. More socialism is definitely NOT the answer. More freedom is and that should start with a criminal justice system based on restitution.
Seeing that this article was published by the globalist NYT I think that while we do need to eliminate prisons that her “solution” is clearly evil and globalist in nature. We need to explore a biblically based solution IMHO. A solution based upon freedom rather than slavery.
