Blame the corrupt judges


"Rabbi Yosi ben Elisha said: If you see a generation beset by great trouble, investigate the judges of the Jews. Suffering befalls the world only because of the judges of the Jews, as it is written (Michah 3), 'Hear this, heads of the house of Jacob and officers of the house of Israel, who abhor justice and distort all that is straight!...'"

(Talmud, Shabbat 139a)

Have a great day,
