Could we sue the government for failure to enforce a reasonable standard of lawfulness in the financial industry, for negligence in protecting the citizenry from abuse of arbitrary power by private corporations, and failure to hold them liable for the losses we have suffered, collectively? It would be a class action lawsuit, the class being defined as any and every citizen or resident of the U.S. adversely affected by the financial and economic meltdown.
I'm an idealist, and naive about these things. I wonder if this is possible. Any thoughts?
