12. because "cui bono" is a wired-in instinct
Edited on Sun Oct-04-09 11:10 AM by librechik
and because we have had too many generations where powerful criminals are not investigated and prosecuted for their crimes. When we don't know the truth and we don't get justice, the people start thinking they're being played.

And they are. Even if each individual case MIGHT have a logical explanation. If the people we suspect of playing us give us another "found Atta's passport on the rubble" story, we simply scoff.

And why would they be afraid of Kucinich? He's not on anyone's "power" list, not like Wellstone was, for example.
