The people who hate America are running it. So, just as the robber barons — nor the Pinkerton Thugs — aren’t thought of very kindly in the history books. Then if the arc of history truly bends towards justice, then the political and business elites in America today, will likely be viewed in very much the same manner.
At least the robber barons became philanthropists. Today’s plutocrats are buying off our political system, and making things even all the more corporatist, unpalatable, totally non-participatory and disgusting. Some of them are even plotting, and planning to move offshore to lawless, tax-free, wholly deregulated, and precariously floating micro-islas! For that effort, I should think, then we shall all say, “Good riddance!”
Today’s politicians — of every stripe — are passing legislation such as H.R. 347 and the NDAA. And not only that, but they have — still fairly recently, made it illicit for them to engage in insider trading. Bill Gates is ostensibly doing something good, I don’t really follow any of his work; I’m not too familiar with any of the work that he does. Perhaps he’s a lone uber-wealthy soul out there doing yeoman’s labor.
Anyways anyhow, those of us — who are not now, nor have ever been — malefactors of great wealth should think of our own activities and activism against the MSM consensus/the Borg hive mind, or the so-called bourgeois political center, as a practice of impeccable citizenship/civic participation. And moreover, to also think of ourselves; in fact, as better denizens than whatever the insane (and unintelligible) gasbags, and blockheads of AM hate radio would slander us and libel us as — with their inane, venomous, noxious and puerile banter.
