This Is What It Looks Like To Live In A Kleptocracy. For Example...

...for example, Russia. When you have a handful of billionaire crooks who remove all safety precautions, because they care more about profits and economic hegemony than they do about the people they're supposed to serve. Your economy is in the dirt, because politicians steal all the public resources, and then use a fraction of what's left to stockpile weapons so they can secure their grip on power.



...for example, China. When you care more about profits than you do about the safety of the people living around a chemical refinery. (Tainjin explosion.)



...for example, Canada. When you care more about profits than you do about the safety of the people that an oil train passes through. ONE overworked engineer per train, takes a break and forgets to set the breaks on his train...




...and, oh yeah, example, The United States. When you care more about profits than you do about the safety of the people living near a fertilizer plant. Remove all safety regulations, so the company/donors can make a few extra pennies...
