Hurrah for Heretics!

The savviest members in the infamous One Percent spend lavish amounts hiring the best propagandists in the world, making malleable advertising people and politicians quite wealthy in their own right. With such minions at hand, the One Percent deflects the average American away from the country’s real problems onto incendiary but basically inconsequential (to the One Percenter) single issues such as abortion and gay marriage.

This is hardly a secret. Entire college textbooks explain how they do it, e.g. Who Rules America. Unfortunately, the average American is ill read, credulous, and easily led. So these $upermen with their single issue bait and sturdy basket of hooks, lines, and sinker myths continue to rule.

Of course, every now and then some member of the moneyed elite ratfinks on the rest. Here’s one explanation featuring comments by billionaire entrepreneur Nick Hanauer:

“Sorry, Folks, Rich People Actually Don’t ‘Create The Jobs'”

Hanauer is a true heretic: “Raise Taxes on Rich to Reward True Job Creators: Nick Hanauer”

I think I’m in love.
