The same way it is about keeping people poor and disenfranchised.
Poor people are not stupid people. It takes a lot of wit to be able to survive in a world with little or nothing. I know I was taught, and bought into
the lie that, " all it takes is a lot of hard work and determination, to make it in this world".
I guess my idea of making it and theirs, turned in different directions along the way. I knew when I was young, green and sassy, that I was going to
be rich, and maybe even famous. I was determined, and I wasn't afraid of hard work. It makes for could copy, but trust me, there is very little truth
in it. If I am too honest, this thread will be completely derailed, since I am pretty much sure that I "could" have indeed been rich, if I had made a
few different decisions in the past. There were options then. Options that disgusted me then, and absolutely turn my stomach today, when out of
courtesy, I feel it prudent to even call them options. But that is indeed a different thread.
There is no true incentive in helping people be independent of poverty. Dynasties exist, because we have the haves, and the have nots. You can't have
the mega rich without the poor. The real incentive is to keep an underclass living a lie that they will someday actually grab the brass ring, if they
work long and hard enough. The rich depend on them believing this, otherwise they would have to clean their own houses and change their own baby's
They will send thousands of our children off to be killed in non-ending wars, before they allow our numbers to become too great to control. After all,
they made the mistake of educating us. It was a carrot that started to back fire. Something had to be done. There where just too damn many of us
starting to catch on.
Well, they are really good at what they do. They have had quite a few centuries to perfect their technique. They also breed and train their guard, so
don't be too hard on those that you would think of as turncoats. And breeding and conditioning are a requirement, but this will lead me back to that
area that will cause derailment, so I will stop here, with just adding that, it takes a certain kind of person to be at the biding of the king. It
takes a lot strength, courage or anger to walk away sometimes, from the offers of dreams, wealth and chance. Not everyone can see beyond the here and
now and for some, ass gleaming is an art form, but I am digressing.
We are not as in control of our lives as we think we are. In fact there is very little that we truly control, if anything at all. How strongly you
fight this one single truth, will tell you just how strongly you are caught in the quicksand. Of, course you may drown in your struggle of denial
before you ever realize it.
