…. (stupendously high medical prices | ridiculous college costs | cops shooting unarmed Australian women | etc)
We can’t do anything peaceful and lawful about it? Oh, I fully understand why these outrageous practices exist. You see, the hospital administrator, doctor and pharma companies have no fear when they refuse to quote you a price or bill you at 10x what an insured person who has consumed their deductible would pay through their insurance, the college dean and provost have no fear when they cause your 18 year old son to rack up $50,000 a year in student loans and the cop has no fear when he shoots an unarmed Australian woman through the window of his cop car — and across the body of his partner.
Everyone seems to think that the concept of “fear” in this regard means doing something illegal and for which they’d immediately go to prison, which is why they’re not (obviously) interested. Oh really?
I would like to put a different postulate forward: You really don’t give a ****.
Seriously, you don’t.
In fact you approve of what they’re doing each and every day.
You don’t care that your 17 year old son is about to get bent over the table by a university in regard to college cost. You in fact endorse your kid being forced to pay half the kid’s tuition sitting next to him in Calc class simply because you have more money than his parents do. In fact you have already gone so far as to conspire with that administrator in screwing your own son by filling out a FAFSA form!
