  4. Divide and rule is the preferred weapon of the ruling psychopaths.
    It’s time for the Left to use the same tactic, by demonising the corporations, their CEOs, their shareholders and their governments puppets.
    The enemy wears a suit.
    And he/she is more often than not, a psychopath.
    If enough people are made aware of this fact, we can emasculate Satans little helpers.
