Re: Left vs. Right /Wayne
From pure observation alone, throughout history, it has always been govt. being created to serve the rich and themselves.
What varies is the degree in which how tight the yoke or the "ball and chain" on the masses is set, depending on the system and culture therein.
Our capitalist system rewards those who like yourself have figured out how to create a certain amount of financial freedom and from which you gain
choice and options. For those who really shine, like Gates or Jobs or Andrew Carnegie, etc etc, then our system rewards them with the equivalent of
Lordship or regal title of sorts. We treat them like royalty. It's still a great system unlike others where one can only stay put within a class if born in that class.
I understand that they have to 'sell' it for the masses to believe in, otherwise no civilization can be built.
But our system does not value nor reward those who choose to stay in the "blood and sweat" working class.
That's just how it is as I see and observe it. In Britain, for those who rise above the masses, they are usually knighted by the Queen,
or awarded the Member of OBE (Order of the British Empire) medal or both.
It is how it is. I'm ok and at peace with that, because that is how it IS. Can't change it.
Long as they throw us a bone once in a while, or make it easier (lighten the yoke) - whether lower taxes, SBA loans..more of those programs, whichever, to
help those willing to take the risk and strive to 'create wealth", then it's all good.
