21. It has been a systematic

Process to get us to this point. The true goal is a return to the guilded age of the previous century.

Reagan began the process through deregulation, by far the most far reaching consequences (in my opinion) was the deregulation of the media.

Once the entire media establishment got folded into in the multinational corporate structure, the message was and has been controlled.

If we put what is happening in a universal historical context then we can observe that this quite common.

Societies in the post agricultural revolution always create hierchical structures which inevitably lead to the concentration of more and more power in the hands of a smaller and smaller group of people.

Eventually, the plutocratic elite destroy the very society their position and power depend on by succombing to greed and short term thinking by pushing the people beyond the point they can endure. The people overthrow the system and the system is rebuilt along hierchical lines and the cycle begins again.

The question is can we change the system through peaceful and political means before change is forced upon it through violent revolution?
