Masters of the Universe...Think We Are Sheep
Definition: what does that mean?
Every period in history has its ruling ‘families’, sometimes related by blood, most of the time related by interest. In societies with strict social classes, this group is called an Aristocracy. In bureaucracies it is called an Oligarchy. Regardless of the title, it is the same issue - a small group of people deciding for the majority. It is all based on a power imbalance between the ruled and the rulers with unassailable positions.
This is the core issue: no matter the consequences of their decisions, there is no peaceful method to balance the power - and that is a very scary situation for any society. That is why countries based on English Common Law or the rise of Trade Unionism - the goal was equalization of power. Keep that insight in mind as we move forward.
History of Monopolies: how did we get here?
History is filled with examples of monopolies whether it is companies like the Hudson Bay or East India Company granted by the monarch a monopolistic hold on a geographic region or market based because of economies of scale like US Steel and Standard Oil.
All societies have these periods of imbalance and use government action to break up the monopolies. Are you confident that this will happen with the current Global Technocracy?
The Problem of Power: what is the source of the problem?
None of these quotes were generated in a vacuum. Each is an observation of what happens when an individual gains enough power to be outside of the control or censure of others that allows for our worst angels to surface and take over.
This is where we find ourselves today - a globalist technocracy in partnership with government. Good news perhaps for large corporations, death for small businesses..

In the meantime, here are some things you can do:
