    There was a fascinating BBC documentary broadcast this evening (the first of three parts) about the collapse of the financial industry.

    all strata of people knew.. they just prioritize personal interest above any sort of will for fairness or collective well being. can't blame them for being the apes that they are. they're normal

    it's more of a failure of species imo.. not that that absolves anyone
