Maybe some believe in the government and the good intentions as stated by officials. Most have given up on the idea of even hoping. We all know in advance that the top corporate crooks are not going to jail, certainly not in proportion to the crimes. Maybe one or two will be jailed at some point, but that will be an abnormality, and regardless of sentencing, we know they will not be in jail for very long.
Those who torture have been granted immunity and we continue our torture programs without interruption, domestically and internationally.
