"This is the cause that's most near and dear to me, the criminal justice system. And I think there are so many current issues right now to be considering, but one of them is people normally, they're going to reenter society. And so when you have these questions of should people who are incarcerated receive education, particularly be able to get high school degrees and college degrees, and there's actually so much friction and so much disagreement with that. The question is, in terms of the endgame, do you want people to come out who are educated and reenter society and can contribute something? Or do you want people who actually are the same person as when they came in and perhaps actually have a sense of vengeance because they feel that they were unduly and unfairly punished or punished for too long? Or don't know how to reengage with the non-criminal members of society.

And I would say, geez, how could you not root for increasing the EQ, the emotional intelligence, increasing the IQ, the analytical intelligence problem-solving ability, of people? So when they come out, and they're faced with the ambiguity of: I have no money, should I go back to the criminal life or go back to the non-criminal life? They would be able to make a good decision. What's the best way of increasing people's problem solving abilities? Reading books, talking about them, and having conversations is the best strategy for adults to increase their intelligence quotient."
