In a republican sociopolitical system, then elites are delegated control of social systems, but they do not understand the nature of society’s problems through their own comfortably sheltered experiences. OTOH, those whose life experiences are battered by the inherent inequality of republican social systems lack the communication skills to effectively organize political action to solve their own problems. Of course this is a feature and not a bug in republican sociopolitical systems.

Affidavits describe “large scale and well organized chicken fighting events” involving dozens of chickens regularly taking place at both men’s properties.

Singleton states in an affidavit. “The investigation further showed that during these chicken fighting events, (Hadden) was distributing large quantities of (drugs), specifically meth and cocaine.”
