America is now governed by a ruling gentry class of plutocrats who, in the name of charity, manipulate the system at will to the detriment of the common man they too often are content to keep in poverty.
Last July I wrote a post here called America’s Plutocrats and PovertyKeeepers about how the spoiled children of the uber-wealthy were determining too much of the direction of the country. It’s only gotten worse since then and the same group of plutocrats continue to impoverish ordinary people who live in rural areas as if they were nothing more than collateral damage in an air war safely directed from the bowels of the beast on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
They managed to manipulate Andrew Cuomo into making the Southern Tier a sacrifice zone (their words) for the purposes of advancing their feel-good utopian agenda, while others like Rockefeller Foundation President Judith Rodin flew off to Europe to lead the World Economic Forum discussions about how to fight global warming, so many of her fellow plutocrats arriving in gas-guzzling private jets that they clogged the airports. Their hypocrisy runs deep and reveals it’s all about the power to run things. We err, though, to imagine they care about that. The gentry class, not the industrial class, is running America today and they don’t give a damn what we think. But, we’d better care because they’ll gladly have us all living in poverty if they continue to get their way.
