I believe that solitary confinement should be phased out of prisons within the United States and eventually eliminated in its current form. Terms:Solitary confinement (or segregation)- placing an inmate within an isolated cell for a period longer than 72 hours for either protection of the inmate, protection of other inmates/the prison, or as a means of punishment. Current Form- Isolated for 23 hours or more in a cell that generally is lit with artificial light...

WaywardSon

The primary reason I oppose a large federal government, is because it provides the least amount of satisfaction among the people.

Preface The Armenian Genocide is sadly one of the least recognized genocides in recent history. The genocide began on 24 April 1915 when Armenian intellectuals and public figures were detained and executed in Constantinople, the capitol city of the Ottoman empire.
