It would behoove the rich to keep their lower minions pleased and happy. Have they not studied history. Just look at the Russian Revolution......if
I was a filthy rich banker wanting to control the world I would not be destroying a very well armed US middle class.
Here is an excerpt from the wiki page on the Russian Revolution.......some of this exactly mirrors the situation in the USA today...........
A nationwide crisis had developed in Russia affecting social, economic, and political relations. The policies of the Provisional Government had
brought the country to the brink of catastrophe. Disorder in industry and transport had intensified, and difficulties in obtaining provisions had
increased. Gross industrial production in 1917 had decreased by over 36 percent from what it had been in 1916. In the autumn, as much as 50 percent of
all enterprises were closed down in the Urals, the Donbas, and other industrial centers, leading to mass unemployment. At the same time, the cost of
living increased sharply. The real wages of the workers fell about 50 percent from what they had been in 1913. Russia’s national debt in October
1917 had risen to 50 billion rubles. Of this, debts to foreign governments constituted more than 11 billion rubles. The country faced the threat of
financial bankruptcy. In September and October 1917, there were strikes by the Moscow and Petrograd workers, the miners of the Donbas, the
metalworkers of the Urals, the oil workers of Baku, the textile workers of the Central Industrial Region, and the railroad workers on 44 different
railway lines. In these months alone more than a million workers took part in mass strikes.
Now on to the best parts...............
Workers established control over production and distribution in many factories and plants.
By October 1917 there had been over four thousand peasant uprisings against landowners.
I'm pretty ignorant on the history of the Russian Revolution but just reading these first few paragraphs is scary enough how it mirrors the situation
here in the US. And most of this was caused by Russia's involvement in the war right? Well America is knee deep in war while our "homeland" is a
complete and utter mess.
It seems that history is repeating itself. It also seems that the same bankers that started the Russian revolution might be starting a similar
revolution here in America? Interesting. Oh the web we weave..........
