Streams on Netflix. I was reluctant to look, but our daughter recommended, so we started watching it.

I think its main value is in showing just how much the rich and the powerful can get away with.

A trivial message, perhaps, but worth of reminding us.

So far his sexual exploits are less important than all that behind-the-scene story.

    WELL BEYOND his sexual exploitations.

    That many of his equally reprehensible like are still doing what they do is also off putting.

    I need to move beyond that and learn from the doc.

    Thanks.

    I too was horrified, not only at the girls that were abused, but that he was able to get so many powerful people in his pocket and got away with it for so long.

    Yes, he had plenty of rich and powerful friends that should be locked up, but Epstein clearly had extraordinary abilities of persuasion and manipulation that he used to exploit everybody around him with no compunction at all, and elevated him into a major league criminal.
