73. No, our faces aren't clean in the context of our own history

or in the context of global affairs.
The "divide and conquer" strategies employed by those, who harvest the fruits of our labor, promote hatred and mistrust of our fellows in order to shield themselves from our wrath. We, to our eternal shame, have embraced the notion that those weaker than us are the root cause of our problems. We fight each other over increasingly scarce scraps, preferring to take from those, traditional or convenient targets, rather than confronting those who have robbed us of the wealth we produce.
The only comfort one might take, from the story out of Hungary, is that the voice of hatred only becomes audible when it feels threatened. Elites, who normally want harmony among those who produce the wealth they enjoy, will encourage us to fight each other when they fear we might point our pitchforks at them.
The uber-folk are afraid and that is good.
