(Reader Supported News) -- The few rich men who control the Capitol have successfully managed to consolidate the majority of the nation's wealth into their hands. The Capitol has taken away food stamps from hungry families and given it to their rich benefactors in the form of tax breaks, subsidies, and other forms of corporate welfare. Career politicians are even smashing up the possessions of homeless people with a sledgehammer with impunity, while wearing designer clothes.
These rich men also control the news broadcasted on the Capitol's airwaves that brainwashes the impoverished masses into believing their suffering is their own fault, that they're only starving because they don't know how to work hard, and that those who control all the resources must somehow deserve it because their status makes them more worthy. However, the rich men still aren't satisfied. They're already trying to force through a trade deal kept secret from the public that would subvert what remains of democracy and install global corporate rule.
