It is the perfect system if you think about it: You have to work, if you do not work you risk head to poverty which results in hunger, homelessness, no health care and minimal education for any children you may have. Once you work you have little time or energy for much else but family time and leasure time. Not much room for you to get active in anything that may disrupt the system.
It’s a perfect system if you are running the system. And this isn’t news to me, it just frustrates the living hell out of me that our government is so corrupt and will not EVER address these issues that people are the most concerned about.
