We Are Waking …

Check this out “Why have we built a paradise for offshore billionaires?” by Thomas Frank of The Guardian. I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Mr. Frank says, for example, “In reality, though, it was never about us and our economy at all. Today it is obvious that all of this had only one rationale: to raise up a class of supermen above us. It had nothing to do with jobs or growth. Or freedom either. The only person’s freedom to be enhanced by these tax havens was the billionaire’s freedom. It was all to make his life even better, not ours.

He is not quite there, though, as you can see from this “I don’t want to go too far here. I know that what the billionaires and the celebrities have done is perfectly legal. They merely took advantage of the system. It’s the system itself, and the way it was deliberately constructed to achieve these awful ends, that should be the target of our fury.

Mr. Frank, with all respect, it is not some disembodied “system” we need to contend with. You must realize that the elites created the system. We do not need to take the system down. we need to take the elites down.

At least the mainstream media are starting to see reality.

  1. But are we really waking? The new super-race is billionaires. It used to be aristocrats – less than a hundred years ago.

    • The elites have been doing this forever, not just a hundred years ago. But now ordinary people have the ability to communicate directly, without filters in place controlled by the elites. If we wake up and see things as they truly are, we may then be able to take effective action. France is a bit ahead of the US right now. In France the elites still fear the people, not so here. Loathe, despise, manipulate, yes, but fear … no.
