"Her officials within her are like wolves tearing [their] prey, shedding blood, and destroying lives in order to make profit dishonestly. Her prophets plaster with whitewash for them by seeing false visions and lying divinations, and they say, 'This is what the Lord God says,' when the Lord has not spoken. The people of the land have practiced extortion and committed robbery. They have oppressed the poor and needy and unlawfully exploited the foreign resident. (Ezekiel 22:23-29 HCSB)
Sounds like what's happening in the U.S. today...
