They have engineered our culture so that we may never have what they have. By creating and enforcing laws that prevent us from ever achieving their successes, they quietly sweep away their footprints and cover their trails behind themselves, and have made themselves gods in the eyes of the masses. Masses that believe, through their religions, that their loyalty will be rewarded.
The masters are enlisting the most oppressed among us to wage war against the rest of us. Those who were masters of the most slaves have found a bountiful resource of loyalty among the decendants of those they whipped, chained, and buried beneath the steel and concrete structure they themselves built with their own blood, sweat, and tears of their children.
The princes and dukes that solicit loyalty among the most oppressed, are themselves fearful of the consequences of their own cruelty.
Meet then, the end of Western Civilization. The fading into the shadows, of the once powerful who now cower behind the rubble of their palaces. Witness again the rotting from within the foundation, Like that of greater Sumaria, Phoenicia, Babylon, and Rome.
The Unites States of America. An Empire Dusk.
