  •  Pretty sure it's supposed to be Sisyphus (3+ / 0-)

    The guy who had to roll a rock up a hill.

    Not sure though, what any of this has to do with either Sisyphus or Prometheus.

    •  My apologies. It was Sisyphus I had in mind. (2+ / 0-)

      The rock Sisyphus forever failed to roll up hill is like the ultra-rich robber barons of today trying to ultimately own and control and collect tolls from every single human being, in every kind of economic activity.

      That is the "boot on the human face" they intend to achieve, and it looks possible with all the high tech surveillance and weaponry in their hands nowadays.

      But it won't work. The further into austerity and poverty you drive any populace of humans the less they have to lose by taking you and yours on, live or die.

      It needn't even come to that. All it needs is to reveal and ridicule the rich, and refuse to use their money, and take over or build your own factories, and ignore them.

      Let THEM eat cake made of trillion dollar notes.
