It Must Be Nice Being the State

I have to say it must be nice being the state. Not only do you get to make the rules but you also get to decide when you’ve broken those rules and if you’ve decided you did break those rules you can also choose what qualifies as just compensation for your victims:

Victims of a decades-old sterilisation programme in the US state of North Carolina are to receive $50,000 each in compensation.

I’ve mentioned this case before. Personally it’s downright disgusting to see the atrocities committed in this supposedly free country built upon equality for all.

Speaking of equality does this ruling mean we’re only subjected to paying $50,000 in compensation if we forcefully sterilize somebody? Hardly, there is one set of rules for us and one set for the state. Unfortunately the state gets to make both sets of rules.
