documentary about aristocracy

It is no different than the corporate aristocracy which has got the reigns on us now - soon we'll all be living downstairs in the servant's quarters unless we stop the corruption and attitude of survival of the fittest and toy mentality. People put their toys and stuff before other people. Today I watched a man wipe down the interior of his Mercedes with a diaper ignoring pedestrians crossing the road and almost hitting them. Had it not been for the dents it might have caused, I don't think he would have cared. Service sector jobs are part of the new aristocracy mentality that is sweeping the nation and the elite aristocratic system of monopolies and those 1 percent who profit from it expects us to swallow it down . I wonder if a months worth of dinners, in government mansions and the white house, wining and dining corporate backers, equates to more than a year of my salary - don't you? Is this what this once great nation has become? Maybe our "elected" officials should start wearing their sponsorship on their sleeves. Then we'll really know who is selling out our democracy and destroying innovation and entrepreneurship and selling out the American worker to compete with slave labor in Communist and third world regimes and just who is paying them to do it. People have the power to disband monopolies which they often don't realize - we only need to petition to do it. 99 percent might even be enough to get it on a ballot. We are stronger than any monopoly and they know it - try searching disband on the internet- you won't find much on the subject - only what corporate search engines want you to know.
