We was robbed (with a fountain pen)!

I've seen lots of funny men,
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.
“Pretty Boy Floyd” / Words and Music by Woody Guthrie (Used with permission)

I came across this lyric from the Woody Guthrie song and thought it very pertinent of today's society in many ways. Everyone has been affected by the 2008 crash, the ramifications of which are still being felt worldwide. Many of the deals that sent the system down must have been signed with a fountain pen (or the digital equivalent) and many people feel robbed as a result. The changes to benefits, the NHS and the legal system, will also have been signed off with a fountain pen and will leave many more people feeling robbed.

It is of no surprise that the changes to the legal system have so far brought such muted objection in the public at large. This is because they were enacted in the illustrious company of the benefits and NHS reforms. People only miss justice when they haven't got it. It's like the air that we breathe - taken completely for granted until there isn't any available.
