Policing, Prisons and ‘The Society of Control’

On this week’s show James Butler and Aaron Bastani discuss issues of disciplinarity, punishment, control and policing – offering context as the state further cuts back on its social welfare role and increases the strength of its repressive functions within the Great Recession.

This month Novara Media are running a ‘subsraiser’, so we can expand our capacity to bring you the stories and analysis that really matter. We can’t run on volunteer labour forever. If we increase monthly subscriptions by £2k, we’d be able to pay everyone for at least one day a month on a living wage. Subscribe to Novara Media for the equivalent of an hour of your wage a month, and we promise to keep working round the clock to build a new media for a different politics. #NovaraLivingWage
