You can’t fix stupid

Britain, apparently, has solved the puzzle of criminal recidivism (H/T Melanie Phillips of the Spectator).

I know that this story provides us with a most important clue as to the greater disease that afflicts Western Civilization.

I really just don’t know what to do with this story, so I am passing it on to all of you greater intellects and other Bookworm Room habitues for a more proper fisking while I try to reorient my conceptualization of the “real world”.

We are doomed!
