Tommy Moo: Elandriel: Keep it up though banks, corporations, government. The people keep getting angrier. History has shown that no matter how cowed a populace is, eventually they snap. So...keep it up.Please.It will never happen. The 1% is savvy enough to keep the 99% happy and stupid and fed. When we get angry, they give us a tiny concession like extended unemployment benefits in '08. They also probably subsidize Netflix (do you imagine the company could actually make a profit charging $8/month for access to half of the movies and TV shows ever filmed?) As long as people have food in their stomachs, a roof over their heads, and mindless entertainment to consume, they will never revolt. The 1% will always monitor the situation and keep society at that threshold.
