The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap
The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap, and not feel a sense of moral outrage, you have no heart. From the time we were toddlers, most of us developed the value that we should strive for fairness in our dealings with others. When faced with injustice, we seek redress. Taibbi presents our current predicament: we have institutionalized injustice in the different ways in which we treat the rich and the poor. The divide that Taibbi explores includes many dimensions, the most significant of which for me involved the crimes we prosecute and the crimes that we consider “too big to jail.” The stories of how some people have been treated shocked me, and opened for question my view that the rights of citizens are respected in our society and that the innocent have nothing to fear.
