I am European with not so much knowledge about the US justice system, but between this, Julian Assange's recent events [1] and this guy's book [2], it's hard to believe it is an independent and a fair system.

We don't have an independent and fair system. It's been highly political and corrupt for a long time, it's just now more blatantly obvious. Partly, this is because of the internet making it easier to make things public and partly because the rich and powerful are feeling less obliged to hide their actions. Too much power has been centralized into just a few hundred people in the U.S.

Is there any book you would recommend on this topic?

Whilst I don't much like what the US government is doing these days, I do wonder if you aren't simply naive. What country are you from ?

Italy ?


France ?


Spain ?


Belgium perhaps ?

Netherlands ?


Norway ?


Which country has a fair justice/government system in Europe ? Because I don't think there's any ... I don't know about serious government crimes in every country, but certainly they're not exactly hard to find.
