Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The destructive, self-serving nature of an inequitable system will very rarely occur to a beneficiary of that system. But, as the system proceeds, there are fewer and fewer beneficiaries and more and more victims. The question becomes one of whether they will see and reject the inequitable system or be mis-directed off against an identifiable sub-set of victims that is conveniently suitable for demonization in the interests of the benefactors of the system.
