Watching the coverage of the people revolting in Egypt on CNN is sickening. They keep mentioning these particular words over and over again: fear, chaos, anarchy, violence, terror, safety, security. The subliminal message is clear: don't you dare revolt against your masters otherwise your safety and security will be in jeopardy. As Benjamin Franklin said, "those who value security above liberty deserve neither." The American sheeple watching these events unfold on their flat screens must surely be thinking to themselves "just how good we have it over here" in the grand ol USSA. At least the Egyptian people are fully aware of who is oppressing them. Here in our own quasi-fascist plutocracy, our rulers hide behind LLP's, LLC's, offshore subsidiaries with the full protection of CONgress and the courts. In fact, we can't even audit the federal reserve, the institution that controls our money supply. We don't have the right to audit and examine the fed so we can see who got the money and how much they received. When Bernanke was asked in Congress who got the money he replied with a fat "NO" and left congressman Bernie Sanders feeling like a schmuck.
Regardless, I am very happy for the people of Egypt and I pray that they kick out that piece of shit Mubarak. Long live freedom! Long live the people of Egypt! Also notice that millions of young, educated and unemployed Egyptians are taking to the streets en masse. Perhaps by 2015 when there are millions upon millions of indentured student debt slaves, we can uproot the cleptocracy which continues to rob this country blind. While Mubarak has ruled Egypt for 30 years we have our mini revolution every 4 to 8 years with the so called "presidential election." The reality is that the true power holders are behind the scenes, unknown to the general public. They control the levers of power in finance, energy, pharma, food, insurance, weapons, education, media, and of course government.
Godspeed to the protestors in Egypt.
