they can destroy their hosts, and when the economic elite takes too much money and resources, they destroy entire societies.
These elites bitch and moan they don't have enough money, money they didn't really earn in the first place but got "their" money through generous tax breaks, bribery of politicians, inheritance, or outright theft. They want the masses to pay even more so they can leech.
The end is near, but these filthy elites want to put off the inevitable as long as possible.
It may be time to bring back the guillotine.
