I don't often comment on political issues, at least not on public forums. But I was intrigued by the loud outcry by the Catholic bishops on the Republican House of Representatives war on the poor by their proposals that would drastically cut anti poverty programs and even raise taxes on the working poor to fund more tax breaks for the wealthy.
There's something going on here that I haven't seen any commentary on. The plan is obviously to complete the transition that has been going on for some time--to turn the poor people back into serfs, like in days of old. The poor people will have no other purpose but to till the soil and do the work for their lords and masters in the nearby castles who control all of the wealth. It's a time honored tradition and we are heading rapidly back to the good old days.
And, if they're serfs, they are kidding themselves by going to college when they'll still be doing menial labor when they complete their education. Education is for the elites, not the masses. Who needs educated serfs--hence the drastic cuts proposed for financial age and student loan programs furthers the goal. Serfs.
Anyway, that's how I see it.
