Kicking Against the Pricks

I'm a 23 year old undergraduate French student newly returned to college in Chicago. Lover of many things - music, art, science, comedy, television, literature, food, language, psychology, etc.etc. I'm a bit crazy, and really a hedonist at heart. I'll never understand how to write an about-me, or how to keep a blog in general - it just feels so fucking self-indulgent. This blog is pretty much just a mish-mash of shit that I feel inclined to throw into the thankless ether of the internet. Cheers.

Day 15 - A book that should be on high school/college required reading list
Discipline and Punish gives an amazing argument for what created the modern system of imprisonment, as well as going over a history of punishment, and presents the serious flaws of the prison system.  Especially in the US, where we are imprisoning such an astounding percentage of the population, this book is extremely relevant.  Also, Foucault is a boss.
