We want the wealthy to keep abusing money and people so that maybe we too someday can have a life free of genuine consequences.
That’s the saddest thing of all.
I defended Michael Jackson for YEARS. This was a BIG DEAL in 1993/4.
Part of it was because he was an idol. Part of it was wanting to believe he was misunderstood. And yes, a tiny part of it was, “Well, if he did, he’s in a position free of real consequence and wow, ain’t that lucky”.
I grew up since yet that tiny part of me still would love it all to just be a farce.
