12. And they still are.

We did have a little run between 1930-1980 that wasn't too bad. We kept the greediest in a slight check for awhile. Now we are right back to the golden days for them.
The thing they figured out was they could never get away with the reimplementation of slavery and Triangle Shirtwaist companies in this country so they outsourced it.
Huge amounts of Americans it turned out were more than happy to share in the proceeds from those ends as long as they didn't have to see it first hand. Gleefully joining hands with Wall St and leading us into our corporate bondage.
Now we steal lands from other indigenous people who made the unfortunate choice of being born on our resources. We have slave made phones. We look the other way when banks launder money for drug cartels and trade with the enemy. The big difference these days is that it is with the assistance of millions of us. More than happy to lend money out for those ends, as long as its returned with interest. More than willing to trade any quaint notions they may have of liberty, justice and a love of the natural world for short term monetary security.
