This is one of my favorite photos of all time. (well, with the caption). A democracy usually lasts only a couple hundred years, and it follows the same cycle – 1) the working class who had been disenfranchised by the wealthy finally raise up and dethrone the monarchy via coup, and establish a new voting government where each member has an equal say. Then – as time goes on, the clever people in the society figure out how to beat the system, and the clever people congregate to do each other favors until they whap down the middle class – who then revolt in a coup and the cycle starts again.
This time is different. This time there is FOX News. It’s brilliant! Make the poor and disenfranchised feel like they’re on the same team as the wealthy! Make them want to support the wealthy so that they can create jobs and prosperity for the working class.
But it doesn’t work like that. When you give tax breaks, etc. to the rich – they put it in trusts that are locked down for a generation, money never to see the light of day. Anybody rich is an investor. And what do investors NEVER invest on? Middle class people. Not hard to figure out people! When you’re out there picketing for conservative clauses, picture the rich people below laughing at you – because trust me I know – they laugh at the picketers, about this hard:
