As to the third - the chief - objection, which maintains the necessity of a government for punishing those who break the law of society, there is so much to say about it that it hardly can be touched incidentally. The more we study the question, the more we are brought to the conclusion that society itself is responsible for the anti-social deeds perpetrated in its midst, and that no punishment, no prisons, and no hangmen can diminish the numbers of such deeds; nothing short of a reorganization of society itself.
Peter Kropotkin (via thetruebookoflies)
Reminder: prisons aren’t designed to stop bad things happening in our society. There are better ways of doing that!
