This is the second of three parts on evil. How do we handle evil in our society? Clearly our prison system doesn’t work. If anything it creates more evil. We spend a huge amount of tax dollars on our prison system. Could we spend some of that on learning the epigenetic triggers in these people? Identify the differences and then figure out which environmental changes cause the triggers. If we could identify the cause of a trigger, we could reform criminals for a lot less than the costs of prisons. Of course that would put a huge number of people who work in and around prisons out of work. What is clear is the way we are dealing with it today is not working! If we do nothing it is bound to get worse. What do you think?
