A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable for he is known and carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself… for the traitor appears no traitor: He speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their faces and their garments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the souls of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is to be less feared. — Cicero
I can no longer take them seriously when they blame others for the crises they cause. How can an outsider fool them enough to gain their trust? They work hard on getting dirt on each other to enforce submission to the common goal of stealing the money of the ignorant masses. The same masses that worked hard to accumulate that money. It is not all for nothing. It was all for them. The self-chosen sick ones. And no outsider gets close enough to be able to know about the plans of the masters for the masses. Well, not the exact sequence. Well, not the exact weapons. Well… whatever. Their apprentices are carefully selected, and put to the test before they stand a chance to come close.
They teach their apprentices that it is nothing personal. Those who do not know better, do not deserve better. The masses would waste their money on entertaining themselves with foolishness anyway. How much better to safeguard it for them, and then demand that they work harder to bring in more money. There is still not enough pension money accumulated for them to steal it all, collapse the scheme, and thus show what the scheme was for. Not that they have not already been stealing the money. The money never gets stolen at the end. The money is already gone, but the illusion of pension funding is kept erect to be able to steal all the money coming in still.
There have been whistle blowers. Some of their robots, realizing that their own pension money was stolen, got brave. But the language of insurance companies has been carefully constructed to be too complicated for most people to understand. As long as the masses see people still getting pensions, there is nothing else for them to believe. The whistle blowers might as well be speaking Swedish. It is only when the pensions get so low, that they no longer cover even the basic living costs, that more people may wake up.
The masses will only wake up, when the masses no longer receive pensions. Until then, they will comply with the rules of the scheme: the government steals the money to put into the pockets of the self-chosen ones. I am not one of them. Government nor self-chosen. Still, even this post will come across as Swedish to some. What is needed is one of them, to tell the masses in clear terms that there is NO MONEY for them in the pension funds. That the numbers on paper only represent ink. There is no savior coming from heaven to save them. But, they might want to start learning how to eat manna from heaven.
We are in need of a traitor among them, not one of them pretending to be a savior by accusing an outsider.
