    The system works to support the folks in power. That's just how it is. The only way to change the dynamic is to be successful enough, i.e. make enough money, to become a member of the group with power.

    There's way more of us and we could tear them down if we all stood together and made one mass union of millions. They're the 1% but we're the 99%. Let that sink in.

    The rich know this, and that's why they do everything they can to keep us all apart. The media creates drama over petty, trivial garbage like trans people using public bathrooms or fueling pathetic arguments about black mermaids. And we fall for it every single fucking time.

    While we're attacking each other over Disney characters, our money is being stolen, our kids are being kidnapped, our women are being trafficked and our futures stolen. But hey...gotta argue about if King Triton should be gay or not, right?

    We deserve this.

    The rich and powerful have money, connections, dirt on people, and so much more. Shit’s just so stressing when you think about it. Bribe people when you can in order to get out of trouble - most people have a price. The ones that refuse bribes probably get blackmailed because typically those with power or influence all have engaged in some sort of shady shit or are just looking out for their family & friends. If all else fails, they can always make them disappear.

    Idk how as a species we've never learned to move past this same point we continue to circle back to. Concentrated amount of wealth and power usurp the will of the people and eventually the entire system collapses. We do this time and time again, we need an entire paradigm shift on how we want to live and until we become a collective society and not this I got mine, fuck you I want it all and a bag of chips mentality then we're doomed to the same mistakes that cost every other civilization and perhaps we can try again when the planet levels off after we're long gone. Until then stay vigilant, engaged, and alert people to try to be motivated to fight this thing out because they've aligned all their chess pieces.

    i mean no shit. Theres a lot more normal crime than billionaires sex trafficking. And guess what, prosecutors ahve been trying to take him down for decades. Guess what else, the fbi launched a huge investigation into the college admissions scandal when someone gave them evidence of the crime being committed.

    This doesn't make any sense. There are less rich people and more poor people so it makes sense that most of the court system is dealing with poor people?

    "Crime of being poor" sounds like a shit justification for breaking the law

    The crime of being poor? Get the fuck out of here. That is absolute nonsense.

    Maybe it’s their circumstances or maybe their upbringing, but it just happens to be the case that a lot of poor people commit crimes.

    Oh, you’re poor? Then I’ll let this armed robbery slide.

    You’re selling drugs so that you can put food on your table? Well, then carry on.

    A crime is a crime, whether you’re poor or not, but being poor certainly is not a crime.

    When was the last time someone was arrested for “being poor”

    There’s a reason they’re called the 1%. They are the richest one percent but they only comprise one percent of the population. There are a bazillion of us ninety-nine percenters buying/selling illicit drugs, robbing convenience stores, and driving badly.

    Have you ever been in an actual court? Local judges do everything they can to not punish the poor. Sit through a few days of court. Especially traffic court if you mention you will have trouble paying or need more time due to financial issues they will give you a break. But I guess that doesn't fit the narrative.

    We need to realign. How many of these crimes are commited out of malevolence vs desperation. I'm not a hardcore socialist but I'm a UBI advocate. If we helped people out just a lil bit petty crimes would go down and people would be able to reinvest in local economies. We really are locking up poor people for being poor while the rich can openly commit crimes against humanity.

    And most people reading this and sagely nodding will never do anything to actually change it beyond vote once in a while.

    And a lot of effort is spent on keeping the masses dumb so they are easily manipulated into thinking/voting a certain way.
