Have you noticed the shift in language, the way we acknowledge Them as trillionaires now. It used to be that at one time, oh, the billionaires are all-powerful. Now its the movements of a trillionaire here and there, and its scrolled on the ticker tape at the bottom of the screen on the news now!!!
I'm fascinated by that!
It proves the paranoia of celebrity culture reinforcing a subliminal view that 'its never enough', and we have top ten song in the charts saying about money, and millionaires, and then that recent one where the guy says he wants to be a billionaire 'so freakin' bad!"
Now wonder we're all bankrupt either side of the pond; the companies were morally bankrupt to begin with, and their making us believe in the magic, and power, and "worth" of money, had ironically, now bankrupt us!!!!
