us justice system
"By now it must be clear, even to the most dull of observers, that Due Process of Law has been thrown out the window. The US justice system has in effect become a two tier system. The privileged few (rich people, law enforcement agencies, the intelligence community, the military, corporations and politicians) gets off with a minuscule fine. Everyone else must spend decades in prison for minor none violent offences. It is grotesque."
"The U.S. justice system is like the U.S. healthcare system - we *imagine* it's far more just and equitable than it really is."

The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
