3. Savage ignorance is a virtue to many in this country

I remember when I was a child and I learned about the death penalty for the first time, I was horrified and disgusted. The very thought that California had a gas chamber was incomprehensible to me, the place I lived did that. It was better still my mother explained to me, California didn't actually have the death penalty at that time but people were fighting to bring it back.

The way I felt in that moment has stuck with me my whole life.
