The Price of Evil

Throughout America’s history, some institutions, despite their morally reprehensible and fundamentally detrimental nature, resist destruction due to the vast number of individuals benefiting financially from the existence of these institutions. People morally and philosophically opposed to such institutions find themselves part of them, involuntarily woven into in their systematic fabric as an inherent part of the economy of the nation. After so many years of financial prosperity made possible by these institutions, people come to not regard them as wrong, or even a “necessary evil,” but as “a lifestyle” or “part of the American culture,” and those benefitting will fight to the death to preserve these financially desirable, but intrinsically evil institutions.
