The following was a reader’s comment to my article in American Thinker, Why Elitists Fail

Human beings can exist in one of only two modes: by controlling nature, or by controlling those who control nature. Those in the first category survive by acting in accordance with the facts of reality. Those in the second survive by manipulating the perceptions of other men. The method of thinking required for one is the opposite of that required for the other, and cannot coexist in the same man. Those most successful at manipulating the perceptions of other men (the political elite) will always be those least connected to reality.

We are ruled by parasites, who must constantly evade the knowledge of their own dependency, and who have no conception of their hosts’ limits. They will suck us dry, while neither knowing–nor caring if they did know–that their own deaths must necessarily follow.
