Isaiah 3:4-5, 8, 11-15

“And I will make boys their princes, and infants shall rule over them.  And the people will oppress one another, every one his fellow and every one his neighbor; the youth will be insolent to the elder, and the despised to the honorable. …

For Jerusalem has stumbled, and Judah has fallen, because their speech and their deeds are against the LORD, defying his glorious presence. …

Woe to the wicked!  It shall be ill with him, for what his hands have dealt out shall be done to him.  My people— infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them.  O my people, your guides mislead you and they have swallowed up the course of your paths.

The LORD has taken his place to contend; he stands to judge peoples.  The LORD will enter into judgment with the elders and princes of his people:  “It is you who have devoured the vineyard, the spoil of the poor is in your houses.  What do you mean by crushing my people, by grinding the face of the poor?” declares the Lord GOD of hosts.”

I would strongly urge you to read the rest of the chapter as well (in fact, America should really hear all of what the prophets proclaimed to Israel), but I really wanted to make a point with these verses.
