    To answer your last question: the priorities of a bankrupt (morally, economically, politically, socially, educationally, psychologically and legally) system of wage slaves who are only too thankful to have a job now. One dare not rock the boat or call attention to anything (think “treason”) or it might get back to ones employer (like Wal-Mart) and the pink slip reward will be forthcoming. Just keep your head down (under the boot of your employer), your nose to the grindstone (millstone?) and your lips on their ass and you MIGHT keep your job another week or two until they find a cheaper replacement.
