I had the same thoughts about the analogies, but they didn’t congeal; thank you for putting them into words so well. I agree that the analogies are very good for starting the deeper conversation. Like, after you remove all the social relations driven by fear and guilt and anxiety and greed, what’s left? How do we build a better society? I think the tool of crime and punishment served to perpetuate the repressive society model; if we want liberation, we can’t use the tools of oppression. So where do we go from here?
