Personally, I love conspiracy theories. “There’s truth in everything.” It gives the our world the drama of TV without the glass between.
Here’s a juicy one: Hedge funds are going to own all the property and land, and will be landlord lords of all… playing hero through programs like HARP Program and in the name of economic growth! “Make America Great Again!” through the Federal Reserve lowering interest rates…meanwhile shipping jobs out, stagnating wages, increasing the cost of school, etc to hundreds of other aspects of life…and you get a mortgage in hopes that you’ll default. And the media distracts you with entertainment news and makes political news entertaining. And then convoluted, ambiguous fund who’s only rule is that an accredited (rich) person(s) need to be behind only 65% of that fund…read this article “What In The World Is Going On With Hedge Funds?”
Here is England’s historical social structure, for example.
The gist is: the nobles owned the land and the king told them what to do with it – add in the usual levels of corruption. The Knights fight for (or against some other) the king, and the gentry are educated with books written by the king(‘s people) and the serf or husbandman were RENTING the land and felt pretty good as long as there was some cottager (or child?) that they could boss around to ‘play king’. And then there’s the lowest, who own nothing and have nothing to do with it. This would be the Jesus type of character. And there, with new-to-you vocabular and contextualization, you have America! In 2016?
One guess who hold the trump card in this situation? There’s a really good hint within that sentence.
Pull the wool over eyes:
Wolves in sheep’s clothes:
Fundraisers Make Pitch For Trump At Hedge Fund Conference
Pull wool off the wolves, will you?:
Okay – So the conspiracy theory is: Trump and his nobles are hedge fund investors with the wealth in their deep, hidden pockets and with the government’s support through popular property-buy-out programs… hedge funds can systematically buy all property and be the landlords of all.
The truth is probably somewhere in between. We probably won’t be in another dark age. But the caste system is alive and well, isn’t it?
As long as there’s Game of Thrones through the looking glass…
You! renting-to-own your own home is the best answer for this conspiracy theory.
