Since the beginning of civilization, those in power have successfully restricted the interest of the majority by regulating their values, by controlling resources through money, [and] not to mention controlling the very processes that exist to challenge them.
Is it a conspiracy? Do such powerful men meet in dark rooms, and work to figure out how to keep their power? Actually no, not as much as you might think.
You see, the hilarious thing about all of this is such a process of manipulation is actually self-generating, justified in a step-by-step manner with basic self-interest guiding the whole way.
You see, the real corruption is not occurring in back-room meetings, or at the docks; the real power resides in how you, the public, actually perpetuate, condone and support the very underlying systems that oppress you."
