The Rich & The Dead

Front page of the Guardian about the wealth hidden offshore by the rich and of The Metro about a mass shooting in an American churchWhilst the victims of mass shootings and terrorism aren’t the rich and powerful nothing will change because for them it’s a welcome distraction.

People that can regularly make decisions that benefit themselves whilst hurting the less well off have no more than superficial reasons to be concerned in a similar way that most people can ignore thousands of unnecessary deaths every year on the roads, in industry, and elsewhere unless it directly affects them.
