As Krgthulu says, that the peasants should suffer for the sins of their feudal lords was not inevitable. It was a choice made by those lords.

The suffering that so many of our citizens are facing is unnecessary. If this is a time of incredible pain and a much harsher society, that was a choice. It didn’t and doesn’t have to be this way.

Our political system has the "feature" that no one is really responsible, so we can debate how much this is the fault of Barack Obama, or "congress," or "money in politics," or "Mitch McConnell," or whatever. But the point is, the people who run the world made their decisions.
