Message to the ruling 1%….. When Popular Science runs a story about the global domination of the corporate elite, you know you’re fucked
Science confirming the obvious: a recent study by systems analysts shows a tight knot of control over the global economy by a handful of corporate giants, mostly banks – and of course, the billionaires who control those corporations. This is why the global pro-democracy movement is exploding around the world: it is unwise, unjust, undemocratic, ecologically suicidal, and by this time, quite simply intolerable, that the richest 1% – or in reality, the richest fraction of a percent of the population – dominates the global economy, the political process and the media. Enough is enough. It is high time for a change. Democracy now!
Occupy everywhere. The second wave of democratic revolutions has begun. Better late than never, I would say. Let’s get on with the show, and heal this world.
Oh yes, and a message to the ruling 0.0001%: I would respectfully wish to inform you that when the (lovable) nerd-geek, science-tech, middle-of-the-road magazine that is Popular Science runs a story on the global domination of the corporate elite, you know you’re fucked – to put it bluntly. You have lost the hearts and minds of the mainstream. The majority of people now world-wide know that they’re being screwed, and they know by whom – and they’re quite fed up with it. The writing is on the wall my friends. Cede power gracefully, and show that you still have a shred of humanity left within you. Desperate acts of infantile grandiosity and clutching at your fast-fleeing power will not serve you well, and will ultimately fail, no matter how smug you may be. Remember Ozymadius. Every empire that has ever arisen has also fallen. Yours is simply the last in a long line. It too will fall; and I pray that when it does, humanity will have learned its lesson, at least for a time, and we will see no more empires of any sort tolerated for at least a few generations, and hopefully forever.
Goodbye old world. A new world is being born.
Hello revolution. Let the new day begin, and begin in peace.
