The System is Working Exactly as Designed

Why is it that nearly 200 countries can come together to restrict property rights (in the name of ‘protecting’ the environment), but we still live in a world with war, assassination, and executions? Why are the restrictions always placed on the individuals trying to survive and possibly even prosper, while the politicians and their enforcers only grow more overt in their disregard for human life with each passing year?

I’ll say again what I’ve said before: The system isn’t broken, it’s working exactly as designed. It was created to enslave mankind and it has been a truly remarkable success. Not only are the tax slaves dutifully laboring to enrich their masters, but every time a few of them realize what is actually going on, the rest turn on them and demonize them for their opposition to the very system which is enslaving them all.
