After decades of making life in prison more and more comfortable for prisoners, the rescision rate has been going up, not down. Clearly there is a certain element of people that prefer life in prison than out.

Assuming that bringing back flogging is out of the question, the the next best thing for applied punishment would be to feed prisoners the same kind of food that so many poor people in the developing world eat: brown rice and beans three times a day! Think of the savings to the cost of running the these days of national debts and deficits it strikes me that such a measure would be welcomed by the taxpayers of the country.
