Insight – Know Your Place by George Carlin 1937 – 2008 American comedian, social critic, actor, author with five Grammy Awards…
You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They’ve got you by the b!!!!. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying – lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.
But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting f!!!!! by a system that threw them overboard 30 f!!!!!! years ago. You know what they want? Obedient workers – people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly s!!!!!!! jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.
And, now, they’re coming for your Social Security. They want your f!!!!!! retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this f!!!!!! place. It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club.
The complete video of this presentation and other revelations which are linked next contain hard-hitting street gutter language profanity and off-the-charts vulgar allusions to abhorent physical behavior that some socially protected viewers might find offensive or disgusting or even sickening. This was George Carlin’s technique to shock his audience out of their passive complacency as he described social crimes that SHOULD make people sick!
Following these presentations there are deep exploratory probes by Congressional committee hearings into the criminal actions which led to the financial crisis and coverups and continued despicable fraud.
If you choose to watch any or all of these videos, you should be aware that you have been warned, and that you accept the risk of subsequent sleepless nights. It is your own choice.
On a more personal social/economic level: India no longer has an exclusive patent on the “Untouchable” class. Now we, former members of the now-defunct American middle class are only peons, where a “peon” is defined as “one who gets peed on” and routinely ignored and blocked from grievance redress.
George Carlin’s insight explains why the wrong people get rewarded in the employment market in America today. The skilled engineers, scientists, and technicians who created the greatest economic engine for freedom through their inventive genius and work ethic must now be “directed” by a (defined as superior) “management class” of economists and lawyers and paper-shuffling bureaucratic administrators with fancy titles who are rewarded only in accordance to the extent of their unquestioning toady loyalty to the no-work mega-rich parasites on the economy.
In the end, it comes down to who is “blowing bubbles”. The delusion underpinning hyper-inflating continuous ponzi bubbles leads to creation of ever-larger illusionary bubbles. When the final bubble breaks, disabled old folks will starve and former members of the defunct middle class will riot in the streets.
