Certainly, much can be attributed to the current government, [but the rich] who bought their way to a healthier life did not, or chose not to, see the widening gulf. Averting our gaze from the tragedies surrounding us, remaining divorced from reality, in our little bubbles, are political and moral choices. However inadvertently, we built the system that is failing us. The collective well-being of our nation depends on us showing solidarity with and compassion toward one another. No one is safe until everyone is.
