"The evil means men use in our day to push themselves
show clearly that the end is not worth much"
The end's justify the means....How often this statement is used to explain away mans evil. But how can we say our society is advanced and enlightened when we continue to justify barbaric acts of criminal nature?
The UCMJ (military justice) exists for justice to prevail, yet men have perverted it into whats deemed as a necessary evil. Just as the military corrections system exists for punishment and supposed rehabilitation.
Let me tell you all a great secret... The true philosophy of military corrections is to isolate, victimize, and make victims of the victimizer. While on the face society might applaud this, does this really benefit the victims or society? When did two wrongs make a right?
What about the criminal mentality it takes to turn a victimizer into a victim? When and where does this criminal cycle end? What about the victimizers family and friends who must be victims for this philosophy to work.? Do they deserve to be victims?
My heart goes out to the victims, but someone must step in and stop this perpetual cycle of violence. Do you know the only lessons I have learned in my wrongful incarceration is that power allows abuse, total and complete unconditional abuse. I live in a system with no checks and balances. No legitamate complaint system and a system that rewards truth with abusive retribution.
Did you really think "ABU Gharib" was an isolated incident done by some rogue elements of the military community? Please "ABU Gharib" happened because the military corrections system sanctions and rewards abusive behavior. Ever hear about the "stafford experiment"? NO...Google it and learn what a stark reality is when you have a correctionsd system without legitamate oversight.
You should see the propaganda sent to public officials when an inmate raises serious concerns with the system.The true fear society should have is that, with the current corrections mentality, inmates return to society bitter, angry, and with a Doctorate in the criminal mind. This is what an abusive system, neglected by society gains you.
So until we as a society learn to move past our own personal bias, crime and retuning criminal will increase until there is a massive failure, creating dire consequences.
Believe me...yes, no, in the end it doesn't matter. Because regardless I will live to fight the injustices of this system. And I believe it will benefit society as a whole. I've found that if you turn your back to something inherently evil than you are not only ignoring it, but your condoning it.
When something is broken it certainly wont fix itself. So how can we expect the system to fix itself when they can't even acknowlegde that there is a problem.. Now here is another shocking dose of reality for you.. Did you know, the most paroled individuals within the military system are also the very highest to re-offend....Sexual offenders (Rape and child molestors)? AMAZING
But hey...the system works right? Sure it does so don't worry who your neighbor is, because after all you've decided to turn your back on this absolutely brilliant system.
Live and learn, lets just hope you learn without having to experience any sorrow first hand. So stay tuned if you care about real life and our society, or tune out if your indifferent to evil..
