    because the system is designed to extract wealth and resources. We are to be bled and left for dead. The Keystone Pipeline is a monument to this accelerating agenda. It's the ultimate straw by which the controlling interests drink our milkshake. Our resources, our environment, our future--they are ready to drink it alllll up.
    We've forgotten that a important reason to tax the greatest wealth so greatly is not to redistribute, but to prevent plutocracy.
    I have conservative family members who didn't even know what plutocracy and oligarchy means. I had to explain it to them. Most are conservative because they are simply very poorly informed about what is actually happening in their country. The shit has not hit their fan yet. But it will...and unfortunately, it will hurt.
    Strangely, I'm somewhat optimistic about the future.
