An unacceptable position on justice and imprisonment

In recent years, the Overton Window of acceptable positions to hold on how we deal with crime and punishment has shifted considerably. Campaigning by prison abolition groups — once viewed as batshit crazy by virtually all sectors of society — has gained traction with the academic and activist leftists. Add to that the cries to “defund the police” that emerged from Black Lives Matter protests this year and we see the meta narrative of justice being framed differently by cultural elites.
