Remember what it was like before H1B1 visa competition and the billionaire immigration game? I don't, I'm a millennial. I'll remember robber baron mega millionaire and billionaire psychopaths 'explaining' how everything is my fault and I 'just need to work harder'. Women haven't achieved any kind of "equality" except the "equality" of sick personality disorders and obscene mega wealth, Murica!

Get some baby boomers in here to 'explain' the situation better lol. Maybe some completely out of context anecdotes / completely out of context macro economic comparisons?

If women think achieving obscene wealth is "equality" with men, they're fools, pathetic money hungry sociopathic fools.

Exactly right. I am a baby boomer and have railed all my life against the worship of materialism evidenced by the nearly total commitment my generation had, and still has, to greed and ambition.

That said, I don't see any evidence that the subsequent generations are, as a whole, any different.

However, you need to understand that there are elite propaganda forces in our government that have deliberately shaped this profit over people and planet world view among the masses.

"The rich executed a coup d’ιtat that transformed the three branches of the U.S. government and nearly all institutions, including the mass media, into wholly owned subsidiaries of the corporate state." -- Chris Hedges

With the advent of social media, the worship of the self has gotten more equality destroying extreme, not less. Watch this video and you will understand what we-the-people, of all genders and ages, are up against.

Excellent post.

You know, Gene Rodenberry (creator of Star Trek) completely & totally nailed the US Corporate Government when he created the Ferenghi aliens whose only priority is Profit & Profit above ALL ELSE.

The Ferenghi Rules of Acquisition was initially intended as a tongue in cheek chuckle BUT it became serious and is actually how the USG & it's Corporate Masters actually deal with people. People & Governments around the world have finally come to see it for what it is and it doesn't look good.

REF:

The Complete Ferengi Rules Of Acquisition

👍 Thank you. I agree the Ferengi aliens are reflections of what was a hidden reality in the US (that is now in-our-faces).

There was another Star Trek episode that reminds me of our anti-democratic situation. The plot is that some human dude (he was from Earth) had violated the Star Trek 'Prime Directive' by interfering on another planet, so the crew of the Starship Enterprise had been tasked to stop the 'interference'. The dude had set up a fascist government because it was 😈 "more efficient".

The MO of his government reminds me of the Trump 🦀 wrecking crew MO.

Sure, Trump is a symptom, not the cause. But, his cruel, arrogant abusive mindset is representative of those fascist oligarchs who put him there.

I checked out some Hitler quotes the other day. I challenge you to find any difference between Hitler's mindset in the following quotes and that of Trump:

“If you win, you need not have to explain...If you lose, you should not be there to explain!”― Adolf Hitler

“Do not compare yourself to others. If you do so, you are insulting yourself.”― Adolf Hitler

“I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few.” ― Adolf Hitler

“The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.” ― Adolf Hitler, Hitler's Letters and Notes

“The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.” ― Adolf Hitler

“The very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence.”― Adolf Hitler


Fascists like Trump count on public's lack of introspection. Hitler and Trump are birds of a feather.

Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
