Elite power has never been so powerful

200ish years ago, the power of the elites in, say, France, was in most respects significantly less than it now is in America -- but it was still enough to catalyze the French Revolution.

It may seem that it was less, but that's because it was limitedly social.

Compared to what? Compared to a hundred new and clever ways the 0.5% elites make certain human cattle stay human cattle. Here's a brief sample.

(1.) Drugs have never been so available (look at what Bush is doing in Afghanistan). Poppies galore! For who? America’s human cattle for openers, but more globally the human race in general. A stupefied species is safe species.

(2.) Trashed education. American education in particular is falling like a stone. It's being under funded out of existence. Why? Well, like drugs, illiteracy keeps the cattle mooing. Stoned and stupid is the name of this game and nothing like this was done even by the "Sun King". The control was all brute force and no fun and games with the "psychology" of the peasants.

(3.) Trashed health care. Here's where it gets, let's say, satanic. It isn't just the absolute power of corporate pharmaceutical vampires and stolen health care plans that workers eared in a life time. It's also genocide.


This is a byproduct freebie of the Bush/fascist money cow Oil Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (and soon to be Iran?). For them, it's the best of all possible worlds. They get all that free oil AND they get to kill hundreds of thousands of people. And the people are subhuman Muslims (at least in this war).
