Why is it acceptable that the rich and elite are not accountable for their action?

Also governor Snyder poisoning residents of Flint Mich, Dennis Haster speaker of the house that molested at least two boys (was convicted of bank fraud paying off the kids) has a team of lawyers saying he is too sick to go to prison all of a sudden and tons of other criminals that have money and power.

  • Because the US is not really a democracy anymore. Over the past 30 years, it has more and more turned into a plutocracy. At the same time, the top tenth of the top 1% owns basically all the big mainstream media. People think they watch different stuff when they watch MSNBC than when they watch Fox News but the truth is that it's all the same horse shit coated in different colors. All these mainstream media stations preach to the American people every day that it is immoral and sinful to even dare to question the status quo. Anyone who does is immediately publicly humiliated, called "dirty commie" and "fucking socialist" and laughed at. In fact, the American society is now at such a crazy point that the people even do the humiliating and name-calling part among themselves. They don't even have to be guided anymore by the powerful few. It's almost like in the former DDR (east Germany) where everyone was spying on everyone. The difference is just that in east Germany, being pro-west was considered a thought-crime, while in the US, criticizing this kind of capitalism and corporatism is considered a thought-crime. The American public has been so brainwashed that it consistently votes and fights against its own interests. A good example for this are worker's unions. Any employee in his/her right mind would be incredibly glad to have a worker's union in his/her back to help him/her fight for his/her rights. Instead, many Americans hate unions and think they're something despicable and dirty. Under NO other circumstances would anyone behave this way. For example imagine people swearing about "fucking doctors" who want to help sick people become healthy again. Yuck! Stupid doctors! Hope they all die! No, nobody would say this. Because it's retarded. It doesn't make any sense whatsoever. With unions, it has become standard and almost political correctness to hate on them. Even if you're clearly an employee and you would only profit from the support of a strong union in the job you work.
    And because people are so brainwashed, they also don't care about the crimes rich people commit. In fact, many conservatives even defend those rich people saying stuff like "it wasn't even that big of a deal"... I wonder if they'd also say that if that rich people had raped somebody instead of driven the national economy against a brick wall.

  • justice is not balanced. people of power feel the common laws dont apply to them and in a lot of cases they dont.
    if you or i ever did even 5 % of what the people in power does, we would be put in jail for life

  • What? everyone is accountable for their actions, there is a consequence for every action, it's just that they can manage things since they have money, but that also I believe is temporary, some time or the other they will have to face the consequences of their action

    • You've been to prison before? When and where? Have you ever been arrested?

    • I have yes. I'm also correct. Not sure why that is bothersome especially after you stated not caring.
