Our own government is filled with corrupt bastards who jerk each other off as well as other nations’ corrupt bastards. It seems to be their only aim, fueled by greed and a neurotic desire to control.
The only way to get rid of it all is to bring it all down and start over–and this time, learn from the past. I’m not advocating any sort of violent coup. I’m advocating that we try to root it out from within, not a baby/bathwater/antibiotic(kill healthy microbes/bacteria/tissue with the bad) approach. In the meantime, they’ll bring it down for us.
While that’s being done, hunker down and prepare for disaster, assuming you live long enough to see it happen and survive the fallout. These governments, like that of ancient Rome, will fall under the weight of their own corrupt flesh. It’s inevitable and the corrupt leaders and the corporations who tell them what to do all *know* it and don’t care. They’re taking whatever they can while they can and to hell with the rest of us.
