41. I read something some time back, that I think illustrates what you are saying, too.

Something along these lines:

The PTB have all the engineers, geneticists, scientists, mechanical devices and entertainers they need. They have the pick of the planet for their corporations and their foundations.

Since some of the greatest scientific inventions are now in their ownership, they have no need to educate the masses. Their intention is to manipulate a global corporate governance that answers to none of the traditional 'We the People' ideas. They don't listen to or respect government anymore, as they control the essentials of life, the land, air, water, energy, food, etc.
So our contribution means little. They have workers to maintain order and a servant class. Why should they finance a system for people they no longer need?

Please tell me I'm wrong, this is a bit depressing what I just wrote here. Or maybe it's nothing new at all?
