Vignettes. iii. The banality of exploitation.

One of the most "awesome" things about being an American is that it's possible to be a massive exploiter of other people without even realizing whom you are hurting. In prior eras, exploiters had to at least confront those whom they exploited.

This is why the present situation is so fucking egregious and dangerous. When you had to confront those you exploited, you knew you could only go so far before they grabbed pitchforks and stabbed you to death with them. Now we are limited only by what we can imagine!
