A. I wanted to write a book to reveal a more civilized society that is based on restoration rather than retribution, to help bring the voice to all those harmed by violence and other crimes, to demonstrate peoples’ capacity to evolve and to change how we incarcerate people. Dreams From the Monster Factory is meant to show readers that our jails and prisons embody our individual struggles as well as our societal struggles. Most importantly, Dreams shows how we can and must reconfigure our criminal justice system so it is a place of accountability and change for everyone’s dignity and safety. Every person I have ever brought to see our jails, whether it was a housewife or venture capitalist, walked away stunned about both the decay and the potential of the human spirit and our ability to change. Since I can’t bring everyone into our prison facilities, I thought I would bring the jails to people by way of this book. I hope you can empathize with the struggles and triumphs of people in these pages as well as see how important it is to come together. By thinking critically, we can stop doing business as usual and can work together to bring about a peaceful revolution for everyone’s sake!
