Was talking to SO about this after all the stuff about how illegal immigrants are part of the economy. We live in a state where the local prison used to make some of the most beautiful wooden furniture that would be sold to the public. They also had this huge garden for the prison that the prisoners worked and the food was incorporated into the menu.
I kind of feel maybe people fall back into lives of crime because prison is now about killing time. (Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's fun.)
But what if you're at a prison that makes you work? You're given a job. You wake up every morning, eat breakfast, and go to work - like everyone else. Maybe the life of crime comes from a lack of good habits. Work routines are good habits to get into. I've read it can take anywhere from 21 to 250 days to learn a new habit - where better to learn a good habit? Am i wrong? Is this a crazy thought?
