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.


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.

Oh my god!   That's so farking funny.  A conspiracy theory involving the 1% and netflix streaming!  I have tears running down my eyes.

Do you think there's a monthly meeting of the 1% where they discuss how to keep the 99% down?  Do people who cross a certain income or wealth threshold get invited and initiated?  "Welcome to the 1%, by the way we're going to need ten bucks each from you to film the next season of House of Cards"

You guys get nuttier by the day, honestly.
