Citadel Tavern / Capitalism is the new Feudalism
« Last post by Ancient Gamer on March 02, 2015, 06:34:38 AM »
For years I have worked in the financial sector, and then I worked for years in surveillance.

I have been to cocktail parties where the big honchos nip their drinks and laugh their asses off, mocking the "stupid sonsof&^%$@es who eke a living out, barely making their bills". These guys are filthy rich. When you get up in the morning, going to work, they get up and get a blowjob from some insanely pretty girl who opted to sell herself as a golddigger wife in exchange for an easy life. When you look at the clock, yearning for lunch, they look at the clock and call the secretary in for another blowjob. When you finally are able to go home, exhausted after a long day a work, these guys pick up their expensive wives and their ton of newly shopped designer clothing and go home to a meal prepared for them.

Society is hierarchical, like in the days of feudalism, and capitalism is the machinery that makes it thus.

I thought I was alone in thinking like this.

Then I read this article by Aral Balkan
https://aralbalkan.com/notes/europe-we-need-to-talk-about-institutional-corruption/

Right now, Aral Balkan is a supreme US thought leader, alongside folks like Elon Musk.

In Europe we don't have thought leaders anymore. Just patriarchs and their sycophants. I feel like I live on a continent where an indoctrinated menagerie of servile sycophants constitute the population. Where the politically correct stifle creativity and actual thought, where it is more important to uphold a facade, to keep up appearances, than to make a difference.

A shadow circus.

Where people look the other way, paving the way for the upper echelon to do as they please.

Feudalism.

I don't like the world we are leaving to our children.

And I don't like what happens to those who try to make a difference.
