Systemic evil

“Most of the time systemic evil is simpler and more subtle. Failing schools and inadequate police protection in poor neighborhoods is far more common. It is often the result of unjust neglect. Our political and economic systems do not listen to people without money and other forms of social power. The residents of poor communities do not have either the influence or the skills to attract more private and public resources to come into their community. They need help, but it can't come merely in the form of relief and development. Someone must resist and change the legal, political, and social systems.”— Generous Justice, pages 129-130

Amen! Good preaching! No need for a conspiracy theory, just follow the money, no power in this world's system.
