Response to bucolic_frolic (Reply #22)

40. bucolic_frolic, that's where my big questions always wind up in a dead end...

is where the big money trail goes and ends. I've always felt there's a layer of extremely wealthy people (many completely unknown to the public) that essentially control the levers of power world-wide. I think it exists in layers, with ones such as Koch and Mercer a step or two down the chain. People like D.J. Trump are just political useful idiots, but ones like Putin are in on the big game.

The most sickening thought of all this to me is that every penny these people control ultimately came from profits from folks like you and I, as we go about our lives purchasing goods and services. And, they turn that money and power against us.

Such people are very opaque with their wealth and business practices and I hope the day comes when that is stopped.
