Bentham the father of Utilitarianism is often blamed for the failure of our prison systems. But in comparison to what the legal /prison system was before him, it is markedly betetr. ALso the powers that eb made sure that even in his own time he would see the bastardization of his vision to rehabilitate those society failed, by teaching skills and educating the least of us so when they returned to society they would be better than the best of us. Once the government, business, and religion took over the wishes of one man to better society were pushed aside. ( )

First words
MICHELLE PERROT E, per i prigionieri, impadronirsi della torre centrale non ha senso?
MICHEL FOUCAULT Sì. A condizione che non sia il senso finale dell'operazione. Se i prigionieri facessero funzionare il dispositivo panottico e risiedessero nella torre, credete forse che sarebbe meglio così che con i sorveglianti?
