During the 2 years Joe Sacco and I reported from the poorest pockets of the United States, areas that have been sacrificed before the altar of unfettered & unregulated capitalism, we found not only decayed & impoverished communities but shattered lives

I guess prohibition and the Great Depression which FDR's policies extended for several years weren't enough of a lesson in futility; now we are spinning our wheels in the mire called the War on Drugs. The amount of money wasted on this futile enterprise could have been better invested in infrastructure; social programs and education.
Democrat or Republican; all political scallywags are welcome in the hall of inflicting misery and suffering on the little guy. Yes Wilson who signed central banking and graduated income tax into existence and FDR were both Democrats. Both Wilson and FDR promised not to involve the USA in WW1 and WW2 yet did so anyway. It was Clinton who championed outsourcing and globalization. Not to pick on the Democrats though since they're the party the Elects usually choose when you want to make national changes. When they want to make international changes they ensure a Republican is elected. War, pestilence, famine and death are the order of the day. When the economic crises increases and prevails criminal behavior and enterprises prosper. This why the Arab peoples are kept poor by their Potentates so that when needed they can be spurred onward to fulfill their tribal and religious obligations to Fearless Leader.
Imagine America; a nation in a severe economic depression with world collapse possibly on the horizon; agent provocateurs fanning the flames of racial hatred; crime and poverty escalating thanks to globalization, outsourcing of jobs and the steady, numbing affect of policies designed to keep the people stupid and intellectually unstimulated. Imagine the conflicts escalated in the cities to the point that martial law is declared and the FEMA camps are open for business. Of course you could be given a choice when WW3 is declared: fight or starve to death in the camps.
To the Elites we are all just a bunch of meat sacs that needlessly consume valuable resources. Hence it doesn't really matter to them whether we live or die anyway just as long as the surplus population is reduced to 500 million by any means necessary by 2025 and no later.
Until then the economic situation will worsen globally as it has been engineered to do. Crime of all natures including drug use and the illicit selling of drugs will continue and so will the moral/ethical fabric of the USA and everyone else. We are nothing more than a blood offering; a burnt offering and a sweet smelling incense of suffering and degradation offered on the sacrificial altar to their Dark Lord whichever illusion you believe. To them "It" is real and these heinous crimes coupled with their good works to maintain the Hegelian balance are expedient. You and I pay for it. It doesn't have to be this way.

Indeed, Michael, it doesn't HAVE to be this way.
