Oppression and the Poor Ecclesiastes 4-5

"... look! The tears of the oppressed, but they have no comforter - on the side of their oppressors there is power, but they have no comforter" (Eccl. 4:1). Why?..?

"If you see the oppression of the poor, and the violent perversion of justice and righteousness in a province, do not marvel at the matter; for high official watches over high official, and higher officials are over them" (Ecc 5:8). Oppression and violent widespread injustice are symptoms of a fatally sick political system - the whole body throbs in agony.
