Are governments just protection rackets for the 1%?

Are governments just protection rackets for the 1%?

Our political systems, regardless of who is elected or in power, have become tools of our oligarchs and are designed to insure that they retain their wealth. We are in fact and in reality ruled by our various oligarchs.

Do you recognize that fact?

Not much room for argument in that.

Ever since Julius Caesar was a lad, governments of whatever kind have consisted largely of the "Haves", with sparse representation of "Have-nots".

Now now. We do not want to say that so many people have been conned for so many those years.

But yours is obviously a true statement.

You would think that at our education levels, even though we have been kept dumbed down, modern peoples might recognize their real slavery and revolt.
