15. The stock in Krups and IBM benefited from the labor camps.
Some people really do think that after "paying their dues" they can become the oppressor rather than the oppressed.

Some people are seduced by the "ownership society" meme - and the chance to be an exploiter rather than be exploited - profiting from the labor of others.

Slaves beat their children because the slave-master beat them - a form of generational child abuse.

Some people think they have a license to be a bigot because they paid their dues being subjected to bigotry.

Some people put up with hazing so they can do the hazing.

Some people think the only thing 'wrong' with the system is that they're not the ones on top getting the biggest benefit from the system.

We live. We learn. We have choices about what we learn. Sometimes we learn to become part of the problem rather than part of the solution.
