To all those like myself who like to use the term TPTB.

If you believe in TPTB then we have lost.

We live in a Walmart world where the rich get richer.
I see no reason why politics should run by different principles however I'm constantly wrong so I look forward to being told so.

But just like McDonalds has won the fast food war, have TPTB won the real war?

Is it over?

Have you listened to the radio or watched MTV?

Fat ladies singing don't exist now.

There are endless opportunities in life to be succesful and break free of the 'matrix'.
With this attitude.. yes.. then YOU have lost..

Firstly the Americans are still armed to the teeth, and this is a major advantage and deterrent.

Second, there are many fast food restaurants that are competing for Mcdon's "clients", we just need to give them a try (fund them).

Third, at some point the system is going to reach a point of change (crash). I think TPTB want to initiate the change so they can control and profit from the change.

You cannot say, "fat lady" anymore, that is not politically correct.

Ask people in their 80's and they will probably tell you that life has never been better than it is today.
Food,
Medical care,
Leisure time,
Perspective maybe?

Well a lot of that is perspective. Happiness has gone down whilst telescreens have grown.

When we attain the awareness that it's not about winning or losing.

From a tree.

It's the greenest thing you can do.

I totally agree...

But that's loser talk.

We're headed towards a cliff edge and our only choice is in whatever direction we want to flap our arms in. I mean, efforts are looking futile.

Whenever the win is fair. At that point you evaluate why you lost and motivate yourself more.
If it is a scenario of a unfair loss then use common sense...

Adele, Kelly clarkson and a few others. If that ain't fat, how do you define fat?

"TPTB" may be in control now, but every empire decays from the inside out and inevitably falls. A shadow empire is no different. When the emerging generations learn to live independently of "TPTB" and the dependent generation meets its fate, then the tables will turn again.

Its all cyclical. Generations of psychological slavery, then generations of enlightenment...rinse...repeat....
