There is a growing consensus that the government is owned by big business and that this big business has stomped upon and are in control of our ways of living, our educational systems, and, indeed, our very survival.

We are dependent upon them for food, drink, education, jobs, pleasurable activities, and escape through entertainment. They have also polluted our air, while taking charge of our children, be it in corporate nursery centers or in school. They have also made us dependent upon them by requiring us to work for them for less money. Meanwhile this money exists as an illusion of ons and offs on a computer chip. Are we nothing but fools in being passive followers of a system that could crash when someone decides to pull the plug?

What kind of beings are these corporations and government systems that have made fools of us and to which we foolishly bow? According to the movie "The Corporation" they fit into the psychiatric category of sociopath disorder. Those characteristics entail

Be able to act witty and charming

Be good at flattery and manipulating other people's emotions

Break the law repeatedly

Disregard the safety of self and others

Have problems with substance abuse

Lie, steal, and fight often

Not show guilt or remorse

Often be angry or arrogant

Oh, yes, they dress nice, smile, tell you how wonderful you are while lying to you about the side effects of their product. Then they do not show any remorse regarding your dying spouse, child or parent made sick by their products. Try to put boundaries on them and you will have a wrath of anger directed at you. And don't be surprised, if you really anger them, that you end up with a bullet in your head. "Hey, its business" as Puzo's Godfather said. "Nothing personal" he says to the screaming spouse who finds out her husband had been "blown away." Or perhaps they'll manipulate fringe radical groups such as many of the Christian sects into paranoia-style hatred of anything that doesn't follow their way! Don't think these particular Christians aren't being used by what could be the essence of Satin himself".the desire to control from the outside more so than allowing an evolution from the inside. Indeed, in mystic Christianity Christ is the evolutionary potential of all humankind, no matter what denominational religion she is raised in. Have we truly evolved in the past 4,000 years through our technology? Yes, we have cars, planes, televisions and computers. But, have we evolved? Or are we devolving by becoming fat, dumb and miserably happy feeding our face in front of a "boob tube". Do you wish to be nursed by a manipulating system or one that truly has your best interest at heart? As researcher Harlow found out in his study of monkeys, one raised by a wire mesh mother becomes pathological in comparison to those raised by real live mothers.

The pitiful thing is that the mechanistic Wizard behind the curtain is controlling the education of our children, our healthcare, our housing, our ability to eat, and even the production of our food. Yes, he also has it to where both parents have to be out of the home to work for slave wages and perhaps, perhaps some medical insurance. And, even that's being taken away.

Who pays for health care with their earned dollars and taxes?
