I wasn't sure where to put this so if it needs to be in another forum topic, please let me know.

This is a very good analogy of our economy.
Although the very end does have a religious spin, (and I personally agree with the author)
I still think that most will agree that this is almost spot on as to how TPTB
became so powerful and how power is the ultimate goal.

The summary at the end is especially interesting.


After a man has far more money than he can possibly spend for pleasure, what is left to excite him? For those with a ruling class mentality, the answer is power - raw power over other human beings. The idealists were used in the media and in Government, but the real controllers that Fabian sought were those of the ruling class mentality. Most of the goldsmiths had become this way. They knew the feeling of great wealth, but it no longer satisfied them. They needed challenge and excitement, and power over the masses was the ultimate game. They believed they were superior to all others. "It is our right and duty to rule. The masses don't know what is good for them. They need to be rallied and organised. To rule is our birthright."
