The satisfaction of an ideological obsession gives rise to social consequences. And the cost of the conservative fix on punishment is paid for by the taxpayer at more than $1.28 billion a year.

That's an expensive habit. The research is done: The cost of prison - Julia Fyers

It is reported that about a third of releases are back in prison for a number of reasons including stigma and social disconnection. Consistent with findings are those enduring addiction and mental illness. If so, then two thirds of incoming inmates are first time offenders. They are suggested to have suffered addiction and mental illness.

Ideological influence, stigmata of social relations and disconnection from families and communities are influencing forces maintaining the prison population.

In so doing, the myth that those branded as criminals mainly commit crimes is debunked. Therefore judicial decisions based on criminal backgrounds and profiling are deemed invalid. Thus, the major cause of so-called crime is influenced by addiction and mental illness.

The above mentioned cause of crime is reinforced by the adversarial relations of the economy or stigma. This is where feminists have took it upon themselves to generate adversarial relations targeting men of power in global affairs, and men of colour in local affairs.

This is true of our prison population that is firstly over represented by Maori and Pacific men and secondly; those Maori and Pacific men are enduring a form of addiction and mental illness.

And continuing with conservative tradition that is no coincident that most of the prison population is largely made up by Maori and Pacific men.

When these folks are disconnected from their families and communities, they become easy targets of aggressive promotions of subjective materialism. Goods and production that have an addictive nature such as drugs, alcohol, food and electronic abstracts are cheaply available. For these folks, self-realisation is sanctioned by material desires as self-extension become parts of themselves as addicts. Thus, a lifestyle of material subjectivism or addiction is maintained by the means of sustaining the economy.

The rise in prison population therefore is not due to any failure of rehabilitation when addicts are released back to a contaminated environment where self-realisation is heightened by drug-induced desires. Drug in here can be a form of infatuation by an image or symbol, dreams and desires.

Clearly, young people who are disconnected from their families and communities are likely to fall victims of aggressive advertisements and adversarial relations of the economy.

When the young are not bound by their whanau links that they are vulnerable to aggressive promotions of subjective materialism. But these folks themselves when hooked become subjects of conservative desires; the satisfaction of imposing punishment upon 'them'.

The addiction to food, drugs and fashion is just the same as addiction to punishment. The individual is under the influence of the addiction, he/she is not free to make an informed decision. But the latter has inherited the infamous term 'monster' in our social media world, just like their subjects in a heightened moment of darkness.

You don't have a valid right to smoke when you are merely satisfying an addiction - under the spell of a drug. It is the addiction that is in controlled of your mind and emotions.

Fast food is fast money and poor folks are caught up in subjective desires just as ideological monsters meet their fix in imposing punishment. It is the dark abyss of the subjective material economy. It is the reality of our material world. And that should standardise so-called crime as normal means of sustaining a lifestyle in the maintenance of the economy. So-called crime now serves an important purpose in the maintenance of the economy.

This development is the tradition of economic stimulus typical of National's interventions that promote the interests of the business community. It hadn't turned a leaf over to materialise a social obligation to the social consequences of material development. Instead, it has built more prisons and even to house them in containers and tents at the bottom of the hill.

No surprised to the fact that prisons are now more secure in a modern environment while hospitals and homes are neglected to substandard status of leaky buildings.

That is why there is hope under Labour for us humans in progressive reforms from the material means of production amongst criminals to actual human beings. Labour has shown to stand on principles rather than popular opinions. Labour is now leading a global trend to move away from fossil fuel and environment pollution. It has shown to promote policies that improve economic participation and social connection with families and communities.

The subjective material economy will continue to deplete world resources only to satisfy material desires and therefore happiness for the few. And if we don't stand up against the likes of these few behind popular opinions, we continue to thin away in the shadow of material subjectivism.

Under a social economy, a social environment supports material growth including environmental changes to sustain economic development. It serves to stabilise families therefore their communities in the organisation of the economy.

We are looking at principle ethics of ideology, family and community organisation and rehabilitation back to the safety of a clean environment.

Under the social economy, there is a chance for the young to realise themselves in the idea of objective being rather than the current perspective of material entity.

For the media to socialise objectivism of social developments can promote the principles of a responsible society. But the media itself is owned and controlled by political forces of right wing conservative ideology.
