The American Dream

“Forget the politicians. 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 everthing. 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 state houses,
the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own
all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news
and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. 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
everybbody 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. That’ right. They don’t want people who are smart
enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re
getting fucked by a sysem that threw them overboard 30 fucking years
ago. They don’t want that.

You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient wokers,
people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the
paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these
increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the
reduced benefits, the end of overtime and a vanishing pension that
disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for
your Social Security 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 from you sooner or later ’cause they own this
fucking place. It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in
the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you
over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All
day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to
believe, what to think and what to buy.

The table has tilted, folks. The game is rigged. and nobody seems to
notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard working people – white
collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on.
Good honest hard working people continue – these are people of modest
means – continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck
about you. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck
about you. They don’t care about you at all, at all, at all. And, nobody
seems to notice. Nobody seems to care.

That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably
remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s
being jammed up their assholes every day because the owners of this
country know the truth: it’s called the American Dream because you have
to be asleep to believe it.”

– George Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008)
