Beaten dog syndrome
See this article, which highlights the Intro of a new book on why we stopped resisting income inequality. Like chronically beaten dogs we think we get what we deserve. And that nothing we do can change it so may as well eek out what little enjoyment there is through sex or consumerism. That's why we need Elizabeth Warren to be our next President, and Bernie Sanders to be our next VP. Then we can believe again that we make a difference, that we can get ahead through hard work, that our government represents us. We need a leader like Warren to get us motivated, to get us to quit accepting the status quo, to not only bark but to bite back and to get our just bones.
