With all the brouhaha over the Rupert Murdoch mess I am reminded again of the inequality that exists between ‘citizens’ and corporate ‘citizens’.
I’m quite confident that in this instance of wrongdoing nobody will go to jail. Were an individual to commit this same crime they would go to jail. Wealth and power insulate the principles of corporate America from their transgressions. Their claims of ignorance relative to these transgressions aren’t good enough. This is an accepted way of doing business in America and across the globe. Corporatists have essentially bribed all the politicians of all the governments. This has been this way for as long as I can remember. Cut a deal, make no admission of guilt, pay a fine and go on your way.
UNEQUAL under law.
