So I'm a writer. If I were to invent Martin Shkreli, I would need to dial him back several notches before I would think of him as far-fetched. The guy isn't a corporate greedhead. He's a cartoon. People like to think that "Pharma Bro" nonsense has shed light on on the evil BS going on behind the scenes. I instead see a moving of the goal posts when it comes to corruption, greed, malfeasance, skulduggery, and general douchebaggery.
How many corporate swine are going to be able to get a pass from the general public because their level-set is this guy's Snidely Whiplash routine?

If you're bad enough and evil enough and if your corporate shenanigans hurt enough people, then surely our diligent and responsible criminal justice system will see to it that justice is served. No need to rise up. No need to vote your financial interests. No need to hunt these people down and put their heads on pikes all along Wall Street.
