In medieval times, the Kings and Queens maintained their inordinate wealth and power by claiming divine right. God was the source of their standing. God was willing them to rule. God chose them to be King. This fallacy worked pretty well as a means of placating and pacifying the poor serfs who lived in mud huts eating porridge. Especially since the fear of god was simultaneously instilled in the people by the Catholic Church. It was a devastating one-two punch of control. Today, the divine right narrative has lost all of it’s punch.
In today’s world the same dichotomy exists in regard to the inequality of people. In fact, it’s much worse than it’s ever been:
In the United States, inequality is also at an all time high:
Not just in terms of wealth, but in terms of access and actual power:
So the new kings and queens have to maintain this inequality using something other than divine right. And they do this in a number of ways:
(1) By monetarily controlling the government. The government in the United States is essentially a whore farm, with the real owners standing in the back room behind a two way mirror. They watch the farm and make sure the whores keep enacting those polices and laws which benefit the creation and maintenance of their wealth. To solidify this control, they make sure the legislature is stocked with favor-owing whores in the own right. The legislative whores make sure the whores at the farm whores can be bought:
They also make sure the whores can keep their jobs for life. Once you get a good whore, you certainly don’t want to have to find a new one:
They also make sure they buy both parties, to ensure the people’s “representative” is going to be their whore no matter what:
(2) By controlling the media. The best way to make sure the masses are swayed to the position that best suits the new kings and queens, is to own and control he media. And keep the narrative on those issues which either creates inaction or division (and this is one cause of this “divisive politics” you speak of).
So, it’s no surprise that Amazon’s Jeff Bezos would buy the Washington Post. Nor that the WP would be a 24/7 mouthpiece for his globalist agenda and the status quo:
(3) By intentionally creating two sides of the same coin; each alleged to be polar opposite of the other. But which, in reality, are really one giant mechanism of control. This is our alleged two-party system. It would surprise some people that Obama’s agenda and polices looked a lot like Bush’s agenda and policies. Here is just one example of many:
(4) By using the media to divide us along emotional issues. By keeping the narrative focused on emotional issues and not the real issues that would help us fight the consolidation of wealth and power.
(5) By selling an agenda as if it’s good for the people; when in fact it just fuels the agenda of the kings and queens. There are many examples in this category. The two that stand out to me are (i) Trickle Down Economic and (ii) The Bush Tax Cuts.
(6) By enacting a policy or law by alleging a feigned fight and some compromise. This is my favorite tactic. Especially when they couple the ruse to something that must be done! This is where some of that “political divisiveness” originates. Using the Bush Tax Cuts, which were extended repeatedly, here’s a great time chronology example of how it works:
