This is a First and  Second Addendum to:

Addendum:

Since Nixon declared the war on drugs – 1971, the beginning of privatizing prisons – 1981 and the Sentencing Reform Act – 1984 prison populations have soared.  The United States prison system now makes the infamous Soviet Gulag System look like little league.

Result of U.S. War on Drugs: PRISON NATION

The United States leads the world in prisoner

production.  There are 2.3 million people behind bars.

China, with four times as many people, has 1.6 million in prison.

Pres. Jimmy Carter in the NY Times, “Call Off the Drug War“:

“Drug policies here are more punitive and counterproductive than in other democracies, and have brought about an explosion in prison populations. At the end of 1980, just before I left office, 500,000 people were incarcerated in America; at the end of 2009 the number was nearly 2.3 million. There are 743 people in prison for every 100,000 Americans, a higher portion than in any other country and seven times as great as in Europe. Some 7.2 million people are either in prison or on probation or parole — more than 3 percent of all American adults!

Some of this increase has been caused by mandatory minimum sentencing and “three strikes you’re out” laws. But about three-quarters of new admissions to state prisons are for nonviolent crimes. And the single greatest cause of prison population growth has been the war on drugs war on peaceful Americans who chose to use intoxicants not currently approved of by the U.S. government (HT: Don B.), with the number of people incarcerated for nonviolent drug offenses increasing more than twelve-fold since 1980.”

Financial Institutional Fraud Prosecutions In Spite of the Explosion In Financial Fraud from the Mid 2000′s
continuing unabated to this day, the number of Criminal Financial
Institution Fraud Prosecutions under the Obama Administration is
the lowest in 20 years.  This may lead you to believe the Administration
is weak on crime. The chart below counters this notion, indicating
the private prison industry is doing just fine, thank you. See:

“When our comrades are locked up struggling against a repressive regime that has no concern for due process, we do not forget. When our comrades are ripped off their civil liberties and human rights, we do not forgive,” – Anonymous

    Well done. Of all the programs that are the most vile is the War on Drugs and the Prison scam. Again, fantastic.

    • Thanks I appreciate the words of encouragement. Yes the war on drugs is a great scaffolding that supports the private prison industry. I encourage anyone who is really interested in understanding how things work that they check out the work of Catherine Austin Fitts.

      “You have a system that’s not being run to be productive as an economy or healthy as an economy. Its being run to centralize control.” – Cathrine Austin Fitts

      See the fascinating interview on corruption with her. If you’re interested in the depth of the Rabbit Hole and the psychopaths within, see the “Dillon Reed and Company: And the Aristocracy of Stock Profits” link at the bottom of: The Looting of America: Happy Labor Day
