From The New York Times:
“In the 21st century, the United States has reinstated a broad system of debtors’ prisons, in effect making it a crime to be poor.
If you don’t believe me, come with me to the county jail in Tulsa. On the day I visited, 23 people were incarcerated for failure to pay government fines and fees, including one woman imprisoned because she couldn’t pay a fine for lacking a license plate.”
That we’re living in a vast system of inequality and a rigged system that makes overcoming the burdens perpetuated by that inequality extremely difficult is not bad enough I guess for the bloodsucking capitalist parasites and police state bureaucrats who profit from the complicity.
Now we’re throwing people in jail for bullshit.
And no one will do anything about it because they’re too wrapped up in divisive and narcissistic identity politics to care about the future of humanity.
