At first your post seems almost like trolling, but behind the face of it, the questions are indeed valid.
First of all, I don't like the idea of "The Powers That Be", because in this world, in order to have power, one has to have a great deal of money
and keep a great many people under one's boot heel in order to keep it. Power means to concentrate resources for just a few, and keep a bunch of
other people out in the cold.
Ethically, it is true that absolute power corrupts absolutely. This is why our founding fathers in America tried to hard to spread out the power so
that no one person or small group could rule over every body else. Yet a select few are trying everything possible (such as ridiculous wars,
fear-mongering and control over the media, destruction of economies, ignoring the constitution, etc) in order to consolidate their power into a
TPTB, to me, represent a group of greedy, soulless individuals who have no problem with people killing each other over lies, children starving, and
people losing everything they have worked for, so that these few black-hearted fools can exercise absolute control in order for them to have
everything, and the rest of the world can just drop dead.
They stand for everything I hate, everything I feel is wrong, and for me to just sit back and allow them to use our world as their personal property
and plaything for war games and profiteering, means that I am just a muppet, a useless breeder and eater, one of 6 billion cattle in a pen waiting to
be used up and then left to die.
I see them as pure evil, and like all evil, it must be confronted and not allowed to prosper. The right road is not always the easiest one to take,
but I couldn't live with myself if I didn't stand up and call them out on what I see as wrong.
I sense the dark night is almost upon us, but I for one will not go gently into it. I will rage against the dying of the light until I am hoarse.
(Thanks to Dylan Thomas and his wonderful poem). Even if I am just a tiny flame, I can make a small area of darkness retreat. If we all are just
tiny flames, we would make a hell of a bonfire. That is what really scares the hell out of them.
I guess I live in a world of ideals. Ideals are the best of what makes man human, and is our connection to the divine. Freedom, liberty, equality,
fairness, and the opportunity for everybody to do well in life are important ideals to me. They are not just words, they are necessary for people to
live fully and happily. TPTB would like to take all of that away. I defy them, their evil, and their theft of what does not belong to them.
