Why Canada is Building all these prisons

People keep wondering why Harper is building more prisons even though crime continues to fall in Canada. People who are wondering about this should consider that these prisons are not for the current crop of criminals. They are being built to house all the disenfranchised, increasingly poor peoples who will finally start to resist the predations of the oligarchy and their global corporate pals. These prisons are being built  because, eventually, a lot of people and groups will rise up against the inequality and ecocide created by the above criminals who will never themselves see the inside of prisons for their actions. These prisons are being built in anticipation of this. The current growth of surveillance by the oligarchy and their global corporate pals is just the first step in determining who will be incarcerated.
