  12. What an incredibly smart, astute, articulate man.

    Unfortunately we may ultimately need to face the reality here. This is simply not a liberal society. It has come a long way, baby, there were slaves afterall, for hundreds of years, they slaughtered an entire continent, total destruction.

    This may just be what amerigoons are about. If the war didn’t create a popular movement, it’s doubtful anything will, not even mass poverty.

    Remember that the people who sit in boardrooms really are just people, it’s not a conspiracy, it’s a disease. But this is what the people want. I reckon it’s gonna get a lot worse, there are no signs of light.

    It is a casino, and that’s just the way they like it.
