Ha. that’s a damn good question isn’t it? The answer is extremely complicated and also really fucking depressing but I’ll try to sum it up. I don’t know everything, but this is what I know.

See, in America the only people who are actually powerful are rich white men who control corporations and in turn, the entire fucking government. Everyone else who seems to be in power, is just a fucking puppet. There rich white men benefit from many things that are horrible for the American people, and also horrible for the rest of the world. These people at the top essentially “bought” the US government, which judging by what I’ve seen and read, isnt that difficult, because they act like fucking children anyway. The two party system (Democrat vs Republican) in the government led to this basically instantly and so checks and balances my ass. People at the top also control the media, which feeds the American people a whole lot of bullshit to subliminally control our views on issues, but also to keep us from seeing the big picture. The big picture being that everyone in the world is for all intents and purposes, ants under the boot that is rich white men. They fear critical thinking because they know the veil is thin. Hence all the attempts to try to discreetly censor the internet.

Oppression of black people (which this nation was built on by the way) gives them money through the prison system. They keep black people poor, uneducated, and struggling in order to funnel them into the prison system. Again, the media will vilify these people to keep the cycle going.

They also profit from war, which is why America’s military funding is not only biggest in the world, bigger than the next 25 or so countries combined, and most of those countries are “allies”. America finds every excuse to invade other countries not to “secure democracy” but for money. They more often than not control both sides off the conflict, allowing them to make profit off of both sides. This is true for 9/11, this is true for WW2, and this is true for a lot of other conflicts. You can look these up, you will find them.

I can go on talking about all the other bullshit they profit from, but essentially they profit on controlling just about fucking everything. Anyone that is even remotely a threat, is systematically oppressed. Racism, sexism, and homophobia might seem wildly different but they are born from the same seed.

So unfortunately, the answer to you question is because they dont give a shit.

this is depressing but i will say this. i believe firmly that the oppressor fears the oppressed more than the oppressed fears the oppressor, even if it doesnt seem so. as long as we as people stay aware and use their fear of our anger, our knowledge, and our determination to our advantage, i think we can turn it around.

if we ignore all this and find excuses to remain comfortable (which is what they want), then we will lose everything and we will lose it fast
