Last night I bought into the Prison Architect alpha and I spent some time playing around today. It's not really playable, to be honest: I found my orders being ignored rather often which meant I couldn't get stuff built so my prisoners started rioting. I also had a lot of escapes; I didn't really build my entrance way securely enough. Looking forward to losing a lot of hours to this once it is finished…

I don't know the context for this so I might be misinterpreting it, and I would replace 'someone' with 'something', then it is spot on. I find my thoughts running, "well, at least there is truth here" when considering some institution, (often historical) individual or piece of writing, over and over and over again.
