Globalization is run by history's largest country club of arrogant sociopaths. People who bulldozed their way to the top and can't imagine a world that doesn't have them installed in fake leadership. Backed by the full faith and credit of the world's Central Banks aka. Goldman Sachs alumni. People who know that when this ends, they won't be at the top anymore. Therefore, they lie constantly, each lie of ever greater magnitude and more asinine than the last. New lies "fix" old lies. Like all true sociopaths they actually believe their own non-stop bullshit. Because that's all they've ever been - bags of self-serving bullshit. Unfortunately the Idiocracy is attracted to serial psychopaths like a moth to a flame. They don't trust anyone who can be trusted. The mark of a true Idiocracy - the desperate desire to be lied to constantly by arrogant circus clowns; throwing their own children and grandchildren under the bus in the process. All hubris, arrogance, and decadence.
Club Orlov: License To Kill
"George Orwell once offered an excellent explanation for this phenomenon: as the imperial end-game approaches, it becomes a matter of imperial self-preservation to breed a special-purpose ruling class—one that is incapable of understanding that the end-game is approaching. Because, you see, if they had an inkling of what's going on, they wouldn't take their jobs seriously enough to keep the game going for as long as possible."
The difference between lying and crying will be measured by one day. Or maybe a night. How do I know? Because we've seen this movie before, and only stoned zombies don't know how it ends...
