I came across this comment on another blog. Since the writer didn’t have a link to a blog or website I am not giving his name out or providing a link. I found it very profound and wanted to share it with all my independent thinkers/readers.
“USA K-12 school students are indoctrinated by “the system” to be good little droids for their elite-class masters. Colleges are similar.
That is why the elites ensure their spawn do not attend public schools. Heck, most private schools also brainwash youth!!! The elites KNOW which schools to send the “fruit of their loins” to ensure their kids learn reality and avoid indoctrination/brainwashing.
Wealth and power…. entire systems; political, education, economic, etc. are created to concentrate as much wealth and power into as few hands as possible.
Then, the propaganda fire is lit to convince the masses that as “things” are is correct, proper and as it should be and if you disagree…… then, assuredly, you ARE a Commie, a terrorist, unAmerican, unpatriotic, a socialist, whatever the buzz-word or term of the era is being used to describe those who can shun the indoctrination intended to make the masses complacent sheep bleating with delight at the actions of their masters.
Sadly, my parents, my entire extended family, were and are those complacent sheep who were brainwashed so thoroughly their belief that as things are IS as it should be will never change.
Yep… indoctrination so intense that when I mention that an elite class even exists I hear the knee-jerk rhetoric of “Well, if you don’t like how things are why don’t you move to another country?”, and they MEAN it!!!!!
Ponder that!!!! Indoctrination so intense that there exists family members willing to tear apart FAMILY while retaining loyalty to systems created by an elite class!!!!
Such a complicated topic with obtaining wealth to allow survival just a minute aspect of the subject.
Heed the commentary in the above article. Also try to cast off at least part of the indoctrination/brainwashing you have endured. It was placed there by a minority who benefit from your ignorance, your complacency, your years of indoctrination to accept the status quo.” –EndQuote
The wealthiest 10 percent of Americans now have a larger share of total income than they ever have in records going back nearly a century — an even larger amount than during the Roaring Twenties, the last time the US saw such similar disparities in wealth. –
The contrast is even starker for the super-rich. The top 0.01 percent of earners in the US are now taking home six percent of all the income, higher than the 1920s peak of five percent, and a whopping six-fold increase since the start of the Reagan administration, when the top 0.01 percent earned one percent of all the income.– Raw Story
C.E.O pay as a multiple of the average workers pay, 1960-2007
In 2007 it was a little over 350%. The chart can be found at figure 6.
Job creation has been disappointing, but first-quarter corporate profits were up 44 percent from a year earlier. Consumers are nervous, but the Dow, which was below 8,000 on the day President Obama was inaugurated, is now over 10,000. In a rational universe, American business would be very happy with Mr. Obama.–
Life of luxury? Rolls Royce on the whole is doing well, too: the company is already on track to double 2009′s sales in 2010. A large portion of the new growth is coming–unsurprisingly–from China.
How come China is a Communist country and definitely an economic and military rival and we trade with them and ship jobs over there like it’s going out of style. But Cuba is a Communist country and we have boycotted them for over 40 years? That’s kind of strange. I wonder if anyone could explain that.

Oh, I almost forgot. Just to ruin your Monday, I thought I’d let you know Americans (that’s us), will pay more taxes in 2010 than they will spend on food, clothing and shelter combined. Enjoy the your day!!!
Not a proponent of bigger government but Better Government!
If your ready to break free from the Left/Right paradigm and think outside the box then subscribe in the top right by pressing the “Become a Rebel” button or by getting the Feed. Leave a comment. I would really like some feedback on how YOU feel about the economic system in America. Is it fair? Are taxes fair? If you think the rich should pay more, does that make you a socialist/communist? Do average Americans have any idea how much wealth the top %’s have?
