Elites and their lackey figurehead politicians across the world are so quick to send the common folks to battle and kill and be killed or horribly wounded or harmed in many other ways.
The scum at the top of the socio-economic hierarchy live luxurious lives at the expense of the many below them.
This fact of life is in all countries, cultures, institutions and other entities where a hierarchical structure exists.
Various religions operate this way along with corporations and other entities.
Of course, the well-indoctrinated brainwashed among us who are part of the commoner class but high enough up the socio-economic hierarchy to live better lives than those below them tend to mention the relatively few exceptions to the far more common generalities I consider when writing.
I wish things could be different but I suppose basic human instincts are the greatest enemy of We, the People… everywhere.
Humans are a social creature with top dogs and those at the bottom of the pack.
And then there is the instinct for a “sense of belonging” that is shown in a multitude of ways.
A recent example for me was watching a NFL football game on TV. USA-type football.
The TV camera panned onto the spectators frequently and the actions, mannerisms, apparel worn, etc. showed me what I perceive but one of MANY ways humans bond to something outside themselves.
