I'd guess she feels a little better after getting that all off her chest.

Also, one of her commenters pointed out something that makes a lot of sense.

It's easy to go off on the various symptoms - the greed, the bigotry, the arrogance, the shortsightedness, the ignorance, etc., etc. - but it's the underlying causes that are the real problem. I get a little tired of making this same point - and I'm sure a few folks out there in e-land are a little tired of hearing it - but we need to set new parameters. You can't live in a materialistic, consumption-oriented society and expect your friends, neighbors and countrymen to be decent, rational, perceptive, caring human beings. The people out there who fit that stereotype do so in spite of the culture we live in, not because of it. So unless we can get at the root problems and start addressing some of the underlying issues, things won't get any better. In fact, they'll continue to get worse.

In other words, the game society teaches us to play is rigged. If we play, we lose. We need to throw out the old rules and start our own game.
