Our Suffering amuses them...
Edited on Tue Jun-03-08 02:23 AM by undergroundpanther
It's downright astonishing what some people in this world get away with. And when I say some people, I'm not referring to a million here or there, or even thousands.

I'm talking about just a relative handful of families around the world. Mega-rich, super-powerful families, who pull far more of our strings than most of us realize.

Fantasy makes the world go round?

Why is fantasy the ultimate engine of human endeavor? Because of its ubiquitous availability, zero cost, enormous power to relieve stress and suffering, aid healing, boost health and creativity, fuel love, and generally motivate us to continue to plug away at our problems-- despite the often overwhelming odds against us.

But-- like most other things in life-- there can be a dark side as well. Fortunately, most of our personal fantasies rarely exert much tangible negative effect on others: for we simply don't have that much power or influence.

However, our top leaders (and the most wealthy among us) are different: their darkest fantasies could well be brought to life, and truly turn our world into a nightmare worse than any horror film imaginable.

1. This doesn't astonish me. The evidence is all around us. If anyone believes we live....
in anything but a Judeo-Christian oligarchy, they are sadly mistaken. Our world is ruled by ultra-rich, bankers, military and the Federal Reserve.
