Norwegian Open Prisons

I agree with this for the most part:

“The biggest mistake that our societies have made is to believe that you must punish hard to change criminals,” explained Oeyvind Alnaes, Bastoey’s then-prison governor. “This is wrong. The big closed prisons are criminal schools. If you treat people badly, they will behave badly. Anyone can be a citizen if we treat them well, respect them, and give them challenges and demands.”
