Have prisoners grow their own food and pay back the taxpayer for the initial investment into farming supplies and materials. This should be feasible in minimum-security facilities, even if there are concerns about them stealing tools to make weapons. Or theys hould be doing some sort of labor to repay the taxpayer.

Lind on Critical Theory

Critical Race Theory
Critical race theory is a subset of critical theory, which in turn is a central element in cultural Marxism. Like the bulk of that hideous ideology, it was created by the Frankfurt School, formally the Institute for Social Research, a Marxist think-tank founded in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1923 (it still exists). When Hitler came to power, the Frankfurt School relocated to New York City, where it remained until 1947 when it returned to Frankfurt.
The Frankfurt School translated Marxism from economic into cultural terms. The Frankfurt School’s primary goal was to destroy Western culture, which it defined as “oppressive”. Critical theory is a tool to that end.

Critical theory now wells up around us in many different forms. Feminism endlessly criticizes the family, marriage, and traditional definitions of men’s and women’s roles. Education theory demands children be taught certain “attitudes”, including disrespect for parents and elders, rather than skills or facts. Critical race theory says that all whites are inherently evil “racists” and “oppressors”, regardless of what individuals do. It demands whites grovel at the feet of blacks, endlessly apologizing for “discrimination” and “white privilege”. Even if whites do what it demands, critical race theory continues to denounce them. Like the rest of critical theory, its demands can never be satisfied, because then the criticism would end. Remember, the theory is to criticize, endlessly, relentlessly, until any defenders of Western culture or traditional ways of living are silenced, “cancelled” or liquidated.
