9. "Freedom" has become the code word

Exploitation pretty well captures it. For the privileged few who have successfully gamed the system for the past 35 years, "freedom" has become their go-to word meaning, "We want our privilege cast in amber, never to be lost. The only acceptable change must tilt things even further in our favor."

History teaches us that it never ends well for the exploiters. Our efforts are as much about saving their miserable, worthless carcasses as it is in moving toward a more just, equitable society.
