The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control
things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians,
they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the
idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice.
You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the
important land. They own and control the corporations. They’'ve long
since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses,
the city halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they
own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all
of the news and information you hear. They’ve got you by the b!!!!.
They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying - lobbying to get
what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for
themselves and less for everybody else.
But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population
of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want
well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking.
They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against
their interests. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit
around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting
f!!!!! by a system that threw them overboard 30 f!!!!!! years ago. You
know what they want? Obedient workers - people who are just smart
enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough
to passively accept all these increasingly s!!!!!!! jobs with the
lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and
the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.
And, now, they’re coming for your Social Security. They want your
f!!!!!! retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to
their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll
get it. They’ll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this
f!!!!!! place. It’s a big club, and you ain’'t in it. You and I are not
in the big club.
The complete video includes vulgar off-the-charts street gutter profanity with
allusions to abhorent physical behavior that some socially protected
viewers might find offensive, disgusting, or even sickening. This was George Carlin's technique to shock his audience out of their passive complacency as he described social crimes that SHOULD make people sick!
If you choose to watch the video, you should be aware that you have been warned, and that you accept the risk of subsequent sleepless nights. It is your own choice.

George Carlin opened a "can of worms"
On a more personal social/economic level: India no longer has an exclusive patent on the "Untouchable" class. Now we, former members of the now-defunct American middle class are only peons, where a "peon" is defined as "one who gets peed on" and routinely ignored and blocked from grievance redress.
George Carlin's insight explains why the wrong people get rewarded in the employment market in America today. The skilled engineers, scientists, and technicians who created the greatest economic engine for freedom through their inventive genius and work ethic must now be "directed" by a (defined as superior) "management class" of economists and lawyers and paper-shuffling bureaucratic administrators with fancy titles who are rewarded only in accordance to the extent of their unquestioning toady loyalty to the no-work mega-rich parasites on the economy.
Who "blows the speculation bubbles"? The reincarnated hyper-inflating ponzi bubble delusion leads to creation of ever-larger illusionary bubbles. When the final bubble breaks, disabled old folks will starve and former members of the defunct middle class will riot in the streets.
