The elephant that is missed and it is a big elephant is that it is a universally recognized truth that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Since power is the ability to control people then it follows that the larger any organization becomes the more likely it is corrupt as the controllers has the ability to control a larger pool of people. This phenomenon applies to private AND public institutions yet it is largely only public institutions were this corruption is recognized and scrutiny applied. This is one of the fundamental problems.


I'll go further; I'll say it IS the problem. WHY? because it is CFS that society benefits from cooperation (I.E. A GOVERNMENT) to foster group health and a harmonious co-existence with fellow humans ONLY as long as everybody has equal voting power (That includes the government AND the corporate fascists that are allowed to run roughshod over the people by said bought and paid for "government"). We know the elite don't want that so they lie and push propaganda that disguises the obvious theft of power and resources that is the daily bread of the bastards in power. All this blah blah out there about the poor being a "drag" on society and a threat to communities has always been a bait and switch to avoid saying who the REAL DRAG on society and a threat to communities are (the rich = the parasites  that hate democracy and work day and night to keep us from having it while claiming they "support" it in true Orwellian speak. ).

The inane, illogical claptrap that passes for reasoned speech in the public airwaves of the U.S. is 100% BS to avoid actually talking sense.  >:( The Libertarian Liars are number one on my list of prevaricators but they aren't the only ones; they are just more brazen about their callous disregard for their fellow man.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
