Staff and officials have been going from corporations and into office and back into corporations for decades. The prison industry has been in the process of privatization for decades, getting worse daily. Our government has become an amoral enterprise serving only the wealthiest corporations and a handful of billionaires, a trend going back decades. Fascism has all but completely replaced representative government, a trend going back decades.
Police are openly murdering blacks on camera without consequence to themselves. Children as young as 4 years old are being torn ,crying, away from their mothers, imprisoned without charges, being denied visitation with their parents or even pone calls, or the knowledge of where they or their parents are, and held like that for months sometimes years - often being abused and even molested along the way. millions are being slaughtered in other countries in illegal invasions lasting multiple decades to get oil for corporations, and tens of trillions of dollars are being spent of taxpayers money for this purpose. Elections are being rigged. The environment is being poisoned and destroyed making human life itself nearly impossible, going forward. Hate rules the day and greed. and this story says we have a single case of “Dystopian stuff”. Ho hum, just another day in paradise.
