In the guise of dealing with a financial crisis (apparently created in the first place by slimy politics and the rampant disregard of financial risks by a privileged few), our elected representatives are presently debating whether they should take from our most vulnerable citizens the right to seek redress for wrongs committed against them. They do this as a play to enhance their power and position with a classic tactic of political expediency: pit one group against the other (i.e., divide and conquer).
