The US has the world's largest number of prison inmates per 100,000 population.
United States 743 Israel 325
France 362 United Kingdom 206
Canada 117 Japan 59
Hong Kong 141 South. Korea 99
But, odd though it might be, that in the outrageous number of 743 per 100,000. there are a tiny number of politicians, members of the upper 2 or 3% of the ultra wealthy (In terms of income inequality the US follows only Hong Kong and Singapore.) or Wall Street manipulators - except for poor Bernie who died for their sins.
Color me a wacko conspiracy theorist and hit me with a stick, but doesn't it suggest there are two justice systems in the US. Or perhaps the politicians, the wealthy and Wall Street citizens are just soooo much more ethical and law abiding than the common herd.
Rep. Charley Rangell (D-NY). I'm astonished that a Congress person would take a bribe it's so unlike them. < snark> It would probably be a much shorter list to name the ones who don't take bribes – the rich buy pretty much what they want.
Your right, but when the rich man steals billions and starts wars to make profit, no one is the wiser. It's a theft to complicated for the common people to understand - or maybe they are just apathetic and defeatist... being fed propaganda instead of factual news (because the elite own the traditional media and are attacking alternative media) doesn't make it any easier to understand.
Being called a conspiracy theorist, a terrorist, or just unamerican are the main code words in US fascism.
The banking system exploits 99% of the population? 'That's just a conspiracy theory'
Everyone is fed what to think, the facts be damned, falsified, twisted or plain dismissed. Conspiracy is the most common way to gain power, so to say there are no conspiracies is absurd.
