and without any moral, humane, or social compass.

Just watched "Dope Sick" the docudrama about the Sackler family and the oxy plague that has taken so many lives.
Never are the wealthy guilty punished the way petty thieves are. And the beat goes on. Below is a link the NYT story about the lawsuits and settlement and the sleazy family behind the opioid epidemic and even some of the judges and law enforcement that played a role in protecting them.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/01/health/sacklers-oxycontin-lawsuits.html#:~:text=The%20lawsuits%20brought%20by%20the%20attorneys%20general%20of,widow%3B%20and%20David%20Sackler%2C%20a%20grandson%20of%20Raymond.

Also wondering how many anti-vaxxers didn't mind taking oxy and are actually hooked on it and other drugs?

2. TFG's GQP

is just a corrupt gang of thugs--the legacy of Raygun/neoliberalism. If not for the approval of Raygun and Thatcher it probably wouldn't have spread nearly as far as it has.

4. How does a story about ONE family translate to "most people with the most money"?
