Why is our justice system so unjust? Why does there seem to be an ever-increasing number of policing organizations with an ever-increasing number of law enforcement officers? Could there be a correlation? What drives the continuing transformation of The United States Of America into The Police States Of America?
We need meaningful drug law reform now. We need to stop locking up people of color while radical right domestic terrorists get a slap on the wrist. We need to reform our criminal justice system. We could make most of our prisons obsolete by simply changing and eliminating the laws that have turned the USA into The Police States Of America.
Originally published in 2018, this book has even more relevance today. The statistics highlighted in the original version have not been updated. If anything, however, those numbers have only gotten worse. What will it take to improve? How do we stop our nation’s descent into fascism? This short work attempts to answer these questions. It not only details how we got to where we are now, it offers a path to an equitable and just society. A society with true INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY FOR ALL!
Note from the author:
The Merriam-Webster definition of fascism is – a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. That sounds like a pretty good description of Trump’s Presidency to me…
If you wish to make the U.S.A, or the world for that matter, a better place for your children and grandchildren, please read this book. Then, as John Lennon exhorted us so long ago, IMAGINE. If enough of us can imagine a better world, we can create it. If we cannot even imagine an equitable society with justice for all, then both democracy and our country are doomed.
