      The plutocracy is confident that no matter how bad things get for us, we will not take any meaningful action against them.  We'll keep voting, keep working and shopping, and half of us will just dig themselves deeper into religion and tribalism - otherworldliness and false consciousness - that will make them better cannon fodder for the plutocracy.
