2. The loss of power by the Paternalistic WASP Rich Old Guys
is what they're afraid of. They want to make sure no one has the upper hand but them. Keep the poor poor. Keep women underpaid, over-worked, and pregnant whether they want to be or not. Keep Corporations on top... not small business -- too many women and minorities own them -- just the big corporations owned by men that look, talk and think like they do. Keep their money all to themselves and get as much of ours as possible. Keep our kids undereducated so they actually have kids to go off and fight their wars... I mean, why educate someone you need behind a gun for you? Keep religion front and center in all things, but THEIR religion only -- all those commandments to keep the little people guilty and repentent... "God helps those who help themselves" is their Golden Rule, because "doing unto others as they would have done unto them" is just too much work, and might involve actually helping someone, and if God helps those who helps themselves -- well, no more of those pesky safety nets that take away money that their grandchildren's grandchildren will never be able to spend.

This system is rigged FOR the Paternalistic WASP Rich Old Guys and against everyone else. That's the way they want to keep it. It is our duty to see they are not able to keep it.
