The criminal justice policy (in the US, reluctantly followed by the EU) has turned out in more punishing. This has not much to do with 'crime and punishment' but rather with a new policy of social insecurity. Its gain is to mould man and woman in the maelstrom of the economical deregulation and the transformation of the social help, who now becomes a guide to an unworthy job. In the framework of this liberal- paternalistic arrangements the prison receives back his original roll: to crease a recalcitrant population to accept the ruling economical and moral order. (Loïc Wacquant prof. sociology California, Berkeley)
