    I think part of the breaking of the middle class and coporate takeover includes an unreported and intentional move to push out small busness, entreprenaurs and freelance contractors.  These are usually individuals with clear knowledge base, direct connections and free thinkers.

    They are not good for a corporatist society because they are not easily controlled and can compete with the private sector.

    So... get rid of them.  Dry up their money lines and credit. Make it impossible for them to make a living outside the corporate system.

      I noticed that. It's been... interesting.
      In the Chinese sense of "interesting."

      What th' heck do I know, I work for a living...

      I think I am about as risk-averse as a person can be, but have toyed off and on for the last several years w/ an idea for creating an environmentally-friendly service company, perhaps to include some family members, perhaps to implement after I retire (still several years away).

      But I haven't been able to shake the uneasy feeling you have put words to, that, crudely, if you're not in "their club", they will crush you (me).  And the religiously "elect" comments elsewhere resonate w/ me as well.  Those would be the people I'd have to convince to be my customers, esp. living in Oklahoma.

      Again, thanks.
