Politici geven slechts het idee van vrijheid en keuze

Hoog tijd op deze blog voor ‘komediant’ George Carlin. Hier dus komt wat brute waarheid verpakt in confronterende woorden, bijzonder grappig gebracht. De style van deze man is ongeëvenaard.

Al eens afgevraagd waarom de economie zo slecht is terwijl ‘de knapste koppen’ toch steeds weer ingrijpen? Al eens afgevraagd waarom politici steeds weer A zeggen, maar B doen? Al eens afgevraagd waarom Nederland al zo’n 20 jaar de nullijn probeert aan te houden op salarissen? Waarom het BBP wel groeide, maar de koopkracht al ruim 15 jaar niet meer is gegroeid? Waarom Nederland in een kansloos Eurozone experiment verzeild is geraakt om er al direct daarna eindeloos aan te moeten betalen?

Waarom arbeidsmigratie wordt verplicht? Waarom het OV zo langzamerhand onbetaalbaar is? Waarom je steeds minder kan kopen met hetzelfde geld? Waarom alle politici (oppositie, waar?) allemaal ineens meegaan met het vreemde, slopende beleid van Rutte? Waarom je continue onderworpen wordt aan vijandigheid van de ‘eigen’ overheid? Waarom de kwaliteit van onderwijs steeds verder verslechterd, jaar over jaar weer? Waarom studiefinanciering verdwijnt, waarom je geen tweede studie meer kan veroorloven? Waarom het nooit eens beter wordt?

Reason

There is a reason, there’s a reason for this. There’s a reason education sucks. It’s the same reason that it will never ever ever be fixed. It is never going to get any better, don’t look for it, be happy with what you got.

Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I am talking about the real owners now. The real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They’ve got you by the balls.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, ­ lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.

What they don’t want

But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. They don’t want that.

You know what they want? Obedient workers. Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And, now, they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you, sooner or later, because they own this fucking place.

It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it! You and I are not in the big club.

Nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care

By the way, it’s same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long, when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted folks, the game is rigged.

And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you’ve got on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means, continue to elect these rich cock suckers who don’t give a fuck about them. They don’t give a fuck about you, they don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you, at all, at all! At all!

And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. That is what the owners count on, the fact that the Americans probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue d*ck that is jammed up their ***holes every day. Because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
