“The real difficulty is with the vast wealth and power in the hands of the few and the unscrupulous who represent or control capital. Hundreds of laws of Congress and the state legislatures are in the interest of these men and against the interests of working men. These need to be exposed and repealed. All laws on corporations, on taxation, on trusts, wills, descent, and the like, need examination and extensive change. This is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people no longer. It is a government of corporations, by corporations, and for corporations. — How is this?”

Diary entry (11 March 1888) – Rutherford B. Hayes – 19th President of the United States

To think the man mostly responsible for the U S Constitution was an Englishman with a price on his head in his country of birth for daring to tell the peasantry that they deserved to have rights.

As an entity said:- 'It's a young soul world. That should be obvious' :(

Extrapolating the limited data available, I reckon about three millennia, & two planets away from the majority losing their fascination for this fear (& ego) driven folly.

For posterity....

During the Coronavirus epidemic of March 2020 on a particularly volatile day for the markets and gold.

Markinspain: "I thought you´d all be glued to your screens".
Laura: "You need to get out more".
People say, "Don't you miss it, Mark?" I say, "What, England? Nah. f**king place. It's a dump. Don't make me laugh. Grey, grimy, sooty. What a sh*t hole. What a toilet. Every **** with a long face shuffling about, moaning, all worried. No thanks, not for me." They say, "What's it like, then, Spain?" And I'll say, "It's hot. Hot. Oh, it's f**king hot. Too hot? Not for me, I love it."

^ Mark, it wasn't that good. Or maybe this a 'shamed forever' move on your part? :D
After all, it was the cruelty aspect that inspired the bitch.

No, I genuinely thought it was very funny, maybe because I have the same twisted sense of humour! :roll:
Came at the wrong time to have an OSV, but do have two properties which is awkward during these troubled times!

I would like to have the one in the film of my signature (which noone has ever asked about btw), but I arrived 20 years too late. This life is all about.........timing!

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
