"Mass incarceration on a scale almost unexampled in human history is a fundamental fact of our country today - perhaps the fundamental fact, as slavery was the fundamental fact of 1850.
In truth, there are more black men in the grip of the criminal-justice system - in prison, on probation, or on parole - than were in slavery then. Over all, there are now more people under 'correctional supervision' in America - more than six million - than were in the Gulag Archipelago under Stalin at its height." - Adam Gopnik, The Caging of America.
