"On its face, it may seem counterintuitive that the halls of government are the source of the great part of society’s disorder, poverty and violence. We are taught that the state, representing the interests of the people and the general welfare, is a great parapet against which indigence and crime crash and dissolve. Never is it considered -- even while only a small few actually control the mechanisms of power at any given time -- that elites might have an interest in perpetuating widespread want and destitution."
