Rules for the New Aristocracy

Quite wonderful polemic of J. Michael Straczynski (Amazing Spiderman, Babylon 5, Twilight Zone), which I have allowed myself, free to translate into German:


It does not matter, how high food prices rise and it does not matter, if you can afford only fast food, we will always be able, To buy steaks. And we are investing heavily in fast-food stocks, to ensure, that we vigorously make money. All the same, how high the oil- rise and gas prices, we will always be able, us to afford these.

In addition to poor nutrition and poor health, be your children grow up without a healthy diet, which causes problems at all levels, from physical to academic difficulties. Our children grow strong and pure and healthy on.

It does not matter, how much does an education, or if you have to send your children to college or for making massive debt you can afford this, we will always be able, to send our children to university. And because much of our income from tax breaks and out-funded by the taxpayer bailouts comes, allow your control This is, to send our children to school. But you did not get the right money from us, for your child to send to school.

If your children want to start a business, will find this, we suck all the money out of the economy and there is simply no available funds, to finance your startup. We give our children just have a check and tell them: Go ahead and have fun with it.

Your children are born under a glass bell, be out of it practically never have the opportunity, to rise. Our children are born on a marble floor, it practically impossible to fall.

If you do accidentally false information on your tax return, you can offer your home, lose your possessions and the whole livelihood. We lie all the time about our Tax Information, without this ever questioned someone. We hoarding trillions of dollars in overseas accounts and never do what we can to ensure that your money is beyond our control, because we certainly need to, to rake in more of it quickly.

You live in a company town, we pay you, For us to work. At the same time we ensure, that we have all the shops in town, sell our products, Medical practices, in which one goes in the city, Restaurants, where to eat, we calculate as high, to ensure, that at the end of the week RECOURSE no money left, to it could be placed on the page and so come you get the idea, to leave the corporate city or to come forward and so there is never a risk, that the Company City is criticized. You work for us. We own the city, where you live. We own you.

If one of you takes a one hundred dollar bill from the cash, he comes to jail. If we save billions in ordinary people and thus bring the economy to crash, what cost thousands of jobs, none of us will ever be prosecuted, since the new aristocracy is above such things. So we just so on. Enjoy the ride.

Your local police is ours. We have it made into soldiers, treats you as terrorists. If you speak against us, we make sure, that you bombarded with tear gas, beaten and handcuffed in the cages of „Free speech zone“ will shipped, designed, You forget that, that the whole country is actually a „Free speech zone“ Product. But now you are allowed only free speech, when and where we permit, that you can do this. We can pretty much say anything to you, do, what we want, without what is happening.

When you see through the background to our game and talk about it, we blame to lead you a class struggle, to distract them, that everyone realizes, that actually takes place, a class struggle and indeed remarked to you and to her that, is the War won over and we have.

And, you have the chance, to vote for politicians and senators and presidents. But only after we have decided, which candidate we fund, long before the first round of voting has begun. First and foremost, we finance those, we like and the, which give us, what we want and you can choose one of the pre-screened candidates, we give you. If we do not like, when we think, that they challenge us, finance, we have not and therefore your will never get the chance, to vote for this, Because you get no real coordination among the nine aristocracy.

We own the White House. We own the Congress. This result – we write the bills. They make the laws, we want, that they do this and make sure so, that they do not narrow us, only you, We never. We own the courts. We have lawyers. They are the club, with which we force you into submission.

There is no democratic or republican senators, or congressional leaders or presidents. These parties, there is no longer decades. There is only the party of the new nobility. The rest is Kabuki theater. Es ist Mexican Wrestling. It is the illusion of choice, the difference, democracy. This is not a democracy. It is a monarchy money. In this monarchy, we are the needle, the kings and what we say, is made.

If you throw away garbage illegally , will be punished her and possibly arrested. If we, hundreds of tons of toxic waste in oceans, submerge rivers and streams, no one is ever arrested by us. If we are once punished, we simply raise our prices, so since her again those, which actually for that, was wir taten, pay.

We are the new aristocracy, and we do not pay fines.
We are the new aristocracy and we are immune from prosecution.
We are the new aristocracy, and we find, your poverty and your impotence and your struggles disgusting. So we prefer to remain among us.

Understands: We do not want, that you will succeed. We do not want, that someone comes along, to cut the cake into smaller pieces. We want to own everything. If we really wanted more of you, believes your, we had the last 30 Spent years, divide every large company into smaller and smaller groups, the fewer people belong?

We are the new aristocracy, because we were born into it. We have our money the old-fashioned, get medieval type: Our parents gave us. We were born in an abundance, we have you and your family stolen in the last fifty years. You were always born in poverty and struggle. So you will never belong to us. You never have our advantages. And we like that so.

We like it, if you peeking through the bars of the cage, to see all the, what we have. We would like, that you think, you can even have this one day, because this illusion keeps you on our side. But you will never have these things. We have ensured. For that, what you see is just us, and we do not share.

The World, we have built carefully for you, is a gamble, where you have to clean knock the big pins with a baseball bat, to win a huge prize. However, the pins are weighted and positioned, that you never had this, never can purely knock. But you pay for it and knocks yes further, to herself exhausted and your wallet is empty. And we like it that way.

We do not want, that you have options, We do not want, that your training makes a, We do not want, that you have a voice to tell you what happens, We do not want, that your health since, We do not want, that you can do something, to be other than terrified and helpless, docile consumers, the Eating and What to Buy, what we tell you, to eat and to see and buy, while we keep all the good stuff for us.

You do not belong to our club.
Because we are the new aristocracy.
And since your the new farmers.
And we like that very, very, very so…
