stop the world, i want to get off.

How the fuck is this happening in the richest country in the world?

I can't watch any more footage of it. That woman begging for help from Bush was just too upsetting. As are all the racist wingnuts who seem to be delighting in the misfortune of poor black refugees, or are announcing that Katrina is God's punishment for New Orleans's "decadence".

I'm not sure the US merits the title of the richest country in the world. That would imply some kind of common fate, common wealth, social contract thing which we increasingly seem to be lacking. It might be more accurate to say that because of its wealth-friendly tax laws, it is home to many of the richest people in the world, who drive the average up; and has a large upper middle class and many rich communities, but not that much wealth held genuinely in common.
