Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

92 See CHARLES BRIGHT, THE POWERS THAT PUNISH: PRISON AND POLITICS IN THE ERA OF THE "BIG HOUSE," 1920-1955, at 306-07 (1996); Edgardo Rotman, The Failure of Reform: United States, 1865-1965, in THE OXFORD HISTORY OF THE PRISON: THE PRACTICE OF PUNISHMENT IN WESTERN SOCIETY 169, 169 (Norval Morris & David J. Rothman eds., 1995). I do not mean to endorse the rehabilitative ideal, nor to suggest that it was ever in fact achieved, but rather to highlight the conflict between a model of punishment in which prisoners are presumed reformable and one in which they are presumed deportable.

Hence the deterioration of a thesis, commanding equal protection of US citizens and "aliens".

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
