The upper class has turned the legal system into nothing more than a set of rules and laws that protect their interests.
The upper class sponsors the church because the church promises the poor rewards in the afterlife for withstanding suffering in this one.
In order to overthrow the ruling class, there must be unity amongst the masses and a desire for revolutionary change.
Without a sudden armed revolution, the upper class will continue to rob and steal, living a life of luxury on the back of the workers.
There is nothing more despicable than the technocrat who follows orders blindly, screwing the people for the sake of a promotion.
