Hey wall! You know what? When people suffer from social distancing and self-quarantine / self- isolation, …

maybe it’s also a good time to imagine how it must feel worse for those who are locked in solitary confinement and psychiatric institutions. The society can benefit from some compassion when imposing restrain, involuntary hospitalization, and institutionalization toward vulnerable individuals!

Makes me feel even more grateful ab being on this campus! 🙂

The UN says solitary confinement is torture. Europe has mostly eliminated its use; this Wall is opposed to using walls in such an inhumane way. There is a strong streak of retributory punishment in the US, though, given the broad approval of capital punishment, three strikes laws, and solitary confinement. I hope one result of coronavirus isolation will be compassion for those subjected to far more extreme versions of isolation.
