    “The war against working people should be understood to be a real war…. Specifically in the U.S., which happens to have a highly class-conscious business class…. And they have long seen themselves as fighting a bitter class war, except they don’t want anybody else to know about it.”



    Add UK to the list of such backward countries...:bangin:

    Where is it rooted - we know...

    However, how does it appear/show up? Here it is:



    WikiLeaks Cables Reveal Profound Hatred for Democracy on the Part of Our Political Leadership

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2012/may/22/social-mobility-data-charts

    Interesting read: http://clients.squareeye.net/uploads/compass/documents/compass egalitarianism WEB.pdf

    So, the vehicle for it all - the education system:



    Manufacturing consent, marginalising the public, since they are a bewildered herd etc. etc.

    Plantocracy is a British thing so it would go without saying that it will be worse in the UK.
    The only way I see of changing the general hatred and the huge divide between the Plutocracy and their
    self appointed "riotous chattel" would be:
    a) socialism, which is one of the primary reasons for the paranoia over the Obama planned gun legislation or;
    b) crash the entire financial system and start over, no banks, currency etc. Have one world economy where from birth each citizen was freely provided with the necessities of life. And a place in society as they grew up based on their strengths and weakness.
    Maybe the Illuminati were on the right track :eek:!?
    Anyway a byproduct in either case is conflict.
