If you are not familiar with what a plutocracy is, here is the most basic explanation via Dictionary.com:
1. the rule or power of wealth or of the wealthy.
2. a government or state in which the wealthy class rules.
3. a class or group ruling, or exercising power or influence, by virtue of its wealth.
The United States of America is no longer a democracy. The reasons we are not aware of this and there isn’t an uprising from the masses are too many and far too complex a system to explain in a few sentences, but look to the avenues by which the majority receive their information and then formulate their opinions and develop their belief structures.
We are taught to believe in and follow the prescribed paradigm in which we live and work and it is unfortunately far too rare for the average person to feel comfortable enough to think outside the box and challenge the status quo. The media, entertainment and everything else in our consumer based economy distracts us from the truths that are glaring at us, begging us to break the mold and demand a better system.
Our government and politicians are mired by greed and held captive by gigantic corporations, too big & with too much influence to risk standing up against. And their message to us is spun to the point of irrelevance and we continue on with our day, ignoring the blatant misuse, corruption and unethical practices that further corrode our economy and the future of our country.
It will all come crashing down, people. Be ready, it won’t be pretty.
