Let’s not also forget that the small number of lifeboats was so the rich passengers had more room to stroll around on the decks.

The Titanic is such a shockingly apt metaphor.

I learned this song in school:

“They built the ship, Titanic / to sail the ocean’s blue / and they said it was a ship / that the water’d never come thru / it was on its maiden trip / when an iceburg hit the ship / it was sad when the great ship went down.

Verse: It was sad / oh it was sad / it was sad when the great ship went down / to the bottom of the… / husbands and wives, little kiddies lost their lives / it was sad when the great ship went down.

Well the ship set sail from England / and not very far from shore / the rich refused to associate with the poor / so they put them down below / where they’d be the first to go / it was sad when the great ship went down…”
