Nobody by Marc Lamont Hill
“When prisons are privatized, issues of crime and justice are taken out of the realm of ethics or morality and placed squarely within the culture and logic of the free market. In doing so, the mission of rehabilitating or even punishing people is trumped by the market-driven goal of maximizing shareholder wealth. Further, market-based notions of “efficiency” prompt prisons to divest from everything but the crudest institutional resources. Healthful foods, mental health resources, and educational programs all become fiscal fat that must be trimmed by the prison in order to maximize the bottom line. In simple terms, we have created a world where there is profit in incarcerating as many individuals as possible for as little money as necessary.”

Majenta Hello, Caroline! Friend Request Accepted, thanks for Requesting! Congratulations on your books.
Question: Why is "Cincinnati" misspelled in your information?
I hope you've had a productive week and will have an even better one ahead! Happy writing, reading, and everything else. Blessings!

Best wishes from Majenta


Caroline Gerardo I love Goodreads! It is fun to see what everyone is reading. I also enjoy seeing friends with similar books, then looking at what else they recommend or read. I'm always reading. Sometimes 18-20 books a month.

Jesse Hanson Dear Caroline,
Thanks much for including me among your Goodreads friends. It looks like your working very hard as a writer and I wish you much success.
Should you find the time and if you have an interest in spirituality, I would ask you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your reading list. It's fiction but is inspired by events from my life.
Namaste, jesse


Cheryl Landmark Thanks for the friend request, Caroline.
