    Prisons are very profitable. There are private prisons nowadays. The people that own them have, as their mission, first and foremost, the making of money. They need as many people as possible in prison to maximize their profits. They also need to spend as little as possible on the inmates and staff. Thus, America has over 2.3 million people incarcerated; more than any other country.

    Gosselin provides a political and historical view of the prison system and its inherent contradictions. He argues that the penal system is used by the State to maintain its authority. He remarks on corporations, the press and the parole board and the difference in their treatment and coverage of prisoners and prisons. He sees the penal system as a morally bankrupt bureaucracy which threatens future incarceration for many people that the economy cannot absorb.
