really liked it

I was able to grasp the concepts in this work more clearly than MF's Order of Things. This is a text that has given me a lot to think about over the years as a voting citizen. What does it say about our society where we put the people considered dangerous, whether it be to themselves or others? What do our physical institutions say about our philosophical truths?

Read and ponder, and ponder.
