Public safety is paramount. No human has the right to injure another human with an
adversary action. Once such an event has occurred and you are found responsible you

and the specific Officers involved in your releaseshare responsibility with youfor the

In a synergic culture, humans found responsible for adversary actions even terrible
adversary actions are not criminals. They are not felons. They are not punished. But they
arecontained. Life Trust Guardians will utilize the most advanced containment
technology available — this could include implanted transponders and continuous
families. Even when incarcerated to the extent possible their lives will be normalized.
dehumanizing that we create more danger and risk for ourselves in our misguided
attempt to control danger and risk. I have paraphrased a description by R. D. Laing of
mental patients in today’s society to emphasize this point:
legal status as human agent and responsible person to someone no longer in
possession of his own definition of himself, unable to retain his own possessions,
precluded from the exercise of his discretion as to whom he meets, what he does.
His time is no longer his own and the space he occupies is no longer of his
choosing. After being subjected to a degradation ceremonial known as criminal
trial, he is bereft of his civil liberties and imprisoned in an institution known as a
correctional facility. There he is completely invalidated as a human being.”8

from existing criminal behavior, but is itself making the situation much worse by creating
evermore dangerous criminals.

The United States prison and jail population was approximately 1.75 million by the end of
1997. It has been growing at a rate of ~7% annual average since 1990. If this growth
continues the prison and jail population will top 2 million by 2001. The total U.S.
incarceration rate of 645 people per 100,000 is six times to 10 times higher than most
industrial nations. The only nation with a higher rate is Russia.

dangerous adversary events.

Imagine a large rehabilitation containment community structured within concentric
circles. The highest security would exist within the central circle. As you moved outward
from the center the level of security would diminish and level of freedom for those
contained would increase.

require further treatment and education, and continuing observation. Only when a
contained individual has demonstrated successful adaptation within a zone for a
prescribed period of time could they migrate outward to the next level.
