Short for "It's all the system's fault, but the fart people are the ones who suffer; I can't help but obsess over this" (dōu shì tǐzhì de cuò, chīkuī de shì pìmín, wǒ bùjīn xiànrù le chénsī 都是体制的错,吃亏的是屁民,我不禁陷入了沉思). Often used alongside the abbreviated phrase society's sickness, my medicine.

The "system" in this case can refer to the government, institutions, or the social system—any large system whose flaws create inequality or injustice.

Wusiyingnianbabaxiluopu (@吾思英年巴巴西洛普): Lately there's been a bit more of "far people suffering the system's mistakes." I'm afraid that middle aged folks, faced with a status quo they can't stand, will come to realize they are powerless to change or choose it, and that they'll become Mao fans, or... Aiya, the birds outside are singing so happily. (May 5, 2016)

最近体亏屁思略多,有点担心中年面对不堪的社会现状却意识到无力改变或无从选择,然后变成了毛粉,或者…哎呀,外面的小鸟叫的真开心。[Chinese]
