    Anyone with an interest in the US prison system, and the link between policy and prisons, I highly recommend this documentary. Includes interviews with David Simon (The Wire)

    Certain sectors of society should not be privatized, the prison/correctional system is one of them.
    Apologies, I thought you were implying that private prison companies were bad because they increased the prison population,. Now you have clarified it is policy makers (hopefully Republicans) who increase the number of prisoners and private prison are bad because they are private. Who manages prisons seems to be an ideological issue so not worth discussing - next you'll be saying education should be nationalised...

    The US Dept of Education is an institution of isolationist, racist indoctrination designed to produce workers and military volunteers (hired killers). Texas parents must teach Texas history at home.

    Lorenzo de Zavalla was a Mexican government official and celebrated intellectual who advocated the independence of Texas immediately upon the separation of Mexico from Spain. US born Texans were shocked. It took years to convince them to fight for independence.

    US history pretends that it was Americans that lead the independence movement against an evil dictator, therefore it was justified for US expansionism to take over Texas.

    They can't explain why hundreds of Texas schools are named after De Zavalla.
