It is surprise to few that "justice" belongs to those who can pay.
Politicians listen to those who can make their lives better or worse.
If you can sway enough people that you can replace them, they always
listen and react. The best among them will keep to their values even at
the risk of loss of privilege/power. The mediocre ones tend to "compromise"
and the poor ones are nothing but gutless carbuncles on the ass of the body
Then there are the ones that are simply corrupt and take in "gifts" or spend
the public's money as if it were their own. Enjoying the best of all things while
claiming to be the defender of the people. Or worse, claiming to be divine,
the carrier of God's authority on Earth, making the people fearful that they will
not escape the pain even after they die.
Even in the United States, "Justice" comes with a price tag.
If you have money you go into "rehab" or get parole on the claim
of "affluenza" or you pay for the best lawyers in the world to muddy
the water so much that it takes decades to convict you, only to have
a pardon bought from a friendly Governor or President as they are
