The underlying mechanics of our society are such:
Constituents are viewed and treated as streams of revenue; their labor and time are exploited at a great personal cost, and the resulting disease and disorder are further exploited for capital gains.
People are easily steered by politicians, media, big business, and anyone who has authority (police, doctors, educators, family, peers, church/temple/mosque, celebrities, etc.)
One group of “elected officials” make a “bipartisan effort” and run the departments of labor, education, public health and safety, social services, environmental protection, food and drug administration, AND has failed society in every department.
It’s quite the feat. I wonder what individuals will do to take more responsibility for society’s wellbeing, seeing as how we need to protect ourselves from those who are supposed to protect us.
