While studying the Old Testament prophets, I keep observing that the complaints against Israel are similiar to our own situation in the U.S. Our free enterprize economic and government systems are based on everyone for himself. In the stock market, we try to buy low and sell high (of course at the expense of others who end up buying high and selling low). In our legal system, the people with the money get the good lawyers and the poor are poorly represented and justice is not fairly administered. Our CEO's get filthy rich while many workers live near poverty. One measure of success of a political party is how much money can be raised. Contributions gain access and influence. The main complaints of most of the Old Testament prophets was that the poor and fatherless were not treated fairly and the legal system was corrupt. Since our systems are based on everyone for himself, are our systems morally wrong?
