Flash Forward Podcast: "Could Mind Control End Crime?" with Liat Ben-Moshe

This vital addition to carceral, prison, and disability studies draws important new links between deinstitutionalization and decarceration"I think people really underestimate the power of community. It was incredibly life-altering for me to find other disabled people that were politicized as disabled. If somebody is in crisis, who better than somebody who’s been through a similar crisis to talk to?

Why not call people who have been there? Why not, you know, really fund all these… I don’t even want to call them ‘alternatives’ because they’re not alternatives; they’re just things that we’re doing anyway, they’re just not funded." 

Liat Ben-Moshe, author of Decarcerating Disability, joins the Flash Forward podcast for a discussion of a future where we start putting devices in people's brains to reduce crime.
