  •  One consequence of an atomized society (6+ / 0-)

    is that each individual is led to believe s/he's the only one.
    Perhaps one reason the consensus that emerged as OWS formed was because the numbers of the abused became so large that the "independence" lie could no longer hold.
    Also, there is no-one more persistent than an innocent person falsely accused and convicted.  So, as the number of innocents (not just in the innocence project) grew, their ire could no longer be ignored. Innocent people have no reluctance about spreading the word, even if they don't take actions like suing for false arrest.  Though, it seems, a lot of New Yorkers have done that.  NYC paid out almost a half billion in one year in civil judgments.  So, the City's "corporate counsel" recommended that the law of torts be changed 'cause the city can't afford the cost of the settlements.
