I see shit like this on the web all the time :
"Class action = thousands of those damaged getting 5 bucks each + one law firm getting millions."
Well you've really bought the lie my friend, that lawyers are evil and using class actions as a tool to reform corporate behavior is pointless. Of course along with that was the lie that the punitive damages were excessive so now we have limits all over which make most settlements against corporations just slaps on the wrist.
But there are tons of these diseases. It's sickening when people are so convinced of some bullshit that they actively fight to screw themselves. They believe in something that keeps themselves down and penalizes themselves, and the powers just laugh and laugh.
Poor people convinced that high taxes on the rich are "unfair" or that estate taxes are "double taxation".
Soldiers convinced that risking their lives for some ill-conceived cowboy bullshit is "noble".
Consumers everywhere convinced that they have to buy the latest disposable bullshit to be "green" or "fashionable".
Middle class people believing they need to invest in risky stocks or leverage up to buy big houses. Of course all this does is give money to brokers.
