Matt Taibbi, in his new book The Divide:

For a country founded on the idea that rights are inalienable and inherent from birth, we've developed a high tolerance for conditional rights and conditional citizenship.  And the one condition, it turns out, is money.  If you have a lot of it, the legal road you get to travel is well lit and beautifully maintained.  If you don't it's a dark alley and most Americans would be shocked to find out what's at the end of it.
I'm halfway through and it's as amazing as you'd expect from Taibbi.
