Senator Duffy can get away with fidding his expenses - all $90,000 of them. HSBC can get away with money laundering on a vast scale. Monsanto can run the FDA. Apple, Facebook and Amazon can pay almost no taxes. Big Pharma can offer drugs that kill thousands. All vaccine makers have a blanket immunity from prosecution.
But you try to be creative with you taxes or expenses - you try and offer unpasteurized milk, real chickens, grow veggies in your front yard - you try an influence society by protesting or leaking and bang you are in deep shit. Officials who themselves break the law in attacking the public who protest, get a tap on the wrist.
It seems to me that the contract between the people and the governers is broken.
I feel such a fool, don't you. It seems that the rules are only for the Little People - like you and me.
