Do you really want to know how the ‘rich’ get ‘richer’?
Well, you can plow through this long list at Mother Jones, or if you prefer, I’ll sum it up for you – in one word – DECEPTION.
The number of ways they deceive us are legion, but the main causes can be counted on one hand.
All they had to do was trick us into giving them control over our money system and over knowledge and technology through the copyright and patent system – believing that it’s FAIR, when it’s NOT.
Then, one decade after another, they consolidated the nation’s resources – tangible (real property and commodities) and intangible (knowledge and technology) – and now NOTHING remains for anyone else.
It’s that simple – and it’s all ‘legal.’
There isn’t a ‘progressive’ tax system in the world that can begin to ‘fix’ an economy as fundamentally flawed as ours.
But, Americans don’t see it. We’re deceived. We’re our own worst enemies.
“The ideal tyranny is that which is ignorantly self-administered by its victims. The most perfect slaves are, therefore, those which blissfully and unawaredly enslave themselves.”
What the FILTHY rich have so cleverly learned is that while it may be fun to look down on others, it’s far more fun and effective to TRICK them out of everything they’re entitled to then sit back and let them hate themselves.
