“Freedom is not a reward for good behavior. That’s how prisons work”

"Freedom is not a reward for good behavior. That’s how prison works” (or “Freedom is not a reward for good behavior. That’s how prisons work") is a saying that has been printed on several images. The saying became popular during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, when some governments “rewarded” citizens with freedoms for taking vaccines.

“@MikocheniReport: Freedom isn’t a reward for good behavior to be snatched away at any time like an annoying rattle by a frazzled parent” was posted on Twitter by Christian Bwaya on October 10, 2013. “Equality and freedom shouldn’t be given as a reward for ‘good behavior ‘, they are inherent to all humans “ was posted on Twitter by Reagan Miviri on October 1, 2017. “This is unambiguous racism, as is the idea that freedom is a reward for good behavior. Freedom is what people deserve by virtue of being people” was posted on Twitter by Spencer Ackerman on June 3, 2019. “freedom is not a reward for good behavior” was posted on Twitter by lostcreatives on January 23, 2021. “Freedom is not a reward for good behavior” was posted on Twitter by David Dougherty on April 4, 2021.

“FREEDOM IS NOT A REWARD FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR—THATS JUST NOT HOW FREEDOM WORKS. THATS HOW PRISON WORKS DUMBASS” (shown on an image) was posted on Facebook by Junior Drumgoon on October 15, 2021. “FREEDOM IS NOT A REWARD FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR! THAT’S HOW PRISONS WORK!” (shown on an image) was posted on Facebook by Paul Eads on October 16, 2021. “Freedom is not a reward for good behavior. That’s how prisons work…” was posted on Twitter by Tight Helluv on October 17, 2021. “#PSA — Freedom is not a reward for good behavior. That’s how prison works” was posted on Twitter by 𝗖𝗛𝗘𝗥𝗨𝗕 𝗥𝗢𝗚𝗘𝗥𝗦 on October 18, 2021.

“Freedom is not a reward for compliance. That’s how jails work” is a related saying.

This is unambiguous racism, as is the idea that freedom is a reward for good behavior. Freedom is what people deserve by virtue of being people.

freedom is not a reward for good behavior.  people are sick of being dictated to about how and when they can go out when you see how the numbers do not match reality.  It’s all fear and speculation for control.

Freedom isn’t awarded by governments, and it isn’t a reward for good behavior. Participating in the program gives assent to the notion that your freedom must be earned. Wake up, the hour is late…

Imagine telling people that their freedom is a ‘reward’ for good behavior. Fuck Orwellian bullshit is that?
