"...The judicial system, after being burned with many headlines of rapists and murderers being freed only to commit more rapes and murders, have started giving out much longer sentences. The problem is that fills the prisons pretty quick. Even if the crime rate is going down, the prisons are still full. We just need to build more prisons..."
------------

I branched this point off to bring it up again.

Commonly termed the Judicial system, feeding the Penal or Corrections system... but what of society addressing the root causes or the foundational basis as in DB's original rethorical opening..?

Businesses have been termed as in any one of several stages... innovation/initial entrepreneural, structuring/building, bureaucratic non-productive layering, end of innovational/opportunity pursuing, declining/failure mode... if....

...there is no continual or renewed sense of the innovative/entrepreneurship as in the formative inital level.

With no quality control processes in mind as any business or government entity proceeds, over time the big picture is pretty much lost and the focus is on the bureaucracy, not the 'finished product' and beyond that, the root elimination of the entire need for the Penal/Corrections process in the first place.

That we have no root focus on our processes or control mechanisms developed and implemented I think speaks to a point directly tangental to the original thoughts.

My 2 cents anyway...
