Is it, though? It would be more absurd if they did. How absurd to think they really cared about "the people" because surely by now we know they don't. Millions unemployed. Millions. And they're taking vacations.

In the Western world, we aren't taught to look at societal problems as structural problems. We're not taught to look at how things like patriarchy and oligarchy create the problems most of us have, parents included.

Instead, we are taught that we are the root of our own problems. We're taught to 'self help' our way out of structural misery. Why do you think it's a 10 billion dollar industry?

They gave 4 trillion to their Wall Street buddies in March and didn't bat an eye, but they're too busy to figure out how to help the people who can't pay their bills.
