What never ceases to amaze me is their foolishness. They believe they're free! They believe the rulers care about the free, if somewhat less than fair and honest, elections. That the chosen politicians make a difference to the billionaires who own the government, we the people and almost everything else . . . or possess the paper that the property secures.
They don't get it. They think that because they're not forbidden to get rich themselves that all is well. But what are the odds? The ten percent who administer the estate of the real owners are the most satisfied among the common folk. The professionals have a much better chance to join the elite class of rulers.
If to be rich means to possess or control ten times the average net worth, wannabes don't understand that only one in ten can be rich, though all the rest have nothing at all. Ninety percent refuse to learn about statistics and probability because they're trained to despise them and those who understand them. They don't know when or how they were hobbled by induced foolishness or learned to imprison their own minds.
The wielders of prejudice, bigotry, nationalism and all manner of intolerance have no idea they're their own victims. They hate most those who would free their minds that they might free themselves. They prefer the illusion of freedom to the thing itself.
"We can have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both." — Louis Brandeis
But dark as it is, the dawn is approaching. There shall be a reckoning.
