In our glorious neo-feudal era it’s unlikely that any of our elites will ever be held accountable for much, but I’m curious about how far this extends. What if, say, John Roberts got liquored up, plowed through an elementary school playground, killed few kids, then drove off in view of several surveillance cameras. What happens?
My guess would be a lot of Village support for him — he made a mistake, he’s not like a criminal or a junkie! — and a slap on the wrist.
