Many of the Elite got where they are due to luck of being born in to a walthy family where they have never had to work one single day in their life. Many who go through University only got there because Daddy paid the fees up front plus extra for the upkeep of the University.

I've met many offspring from very wealthy families and I have to say they are not the brightest sparks in the head and many of them do lack empathy.

I found the article in one of the posts here quite excellent in many ways to show the mechanisms and interrelationships between the exploiters and the exploited.

However, the article states that
“ According to psychologists and sociologists - many on Wall Street and D.C. are not like you and me. They are literally psychopaths.”

It further describes very understandably why most people seem to fall for those manipulations.
an example from the article:

As Adolph Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf:
All this was inspired by the principle–which is quite true in itself–that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.


I agree with some of you here that say not to underestimate the string pullers at the top of the strings that seem to run puppets.

And I agree that our consciousness can make a difference.

Our consciousness works best when we truly know ourselves!


Are we not all psychopaths? How else could we be so stupid to let stupidity rule?


Think outside the box! I agree!


Think for yourselves and don’t be afraid to be different, to stand out, to be ridiculed - this happened to many the best thinkers and researchers.

It is the way to find the truth

I agree and disagree with all of you. YES, they are very smart only dumb in the aspect on how they do things. Its like taking a kid off the street one out of school who do you think has a better understanding how things work? Its like the old farts in Congress, thats why things don't change. Should be a rule on 4yrs there too!
