The world is a business, gullible voter

     A speech by Arthur Jensen to Howard Beale in the movie, Network, is probably what Donald Trump would say to the gullible who voted him into office. Jensen’s speech suggests love for flag and country is delusional, while obsession for money is reality.

Speaking to Beale, Jensen said, “You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and people. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars.

Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, Reich marks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels.”

Jensen continues, “It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today. We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale. The world is a college of corporations, inexorably determined by the immutable bylaws of business. The world is a business, Mr. Beale.”

That is why conservative swamp dwellers like Rush Limbaugh and FOX News spew divisive propaganda which incites the masses to quarrel and kill each other over flags, anthems, and skin color. In the meantime, billionaires like Trump focus on amassing huge fortunes.

Indeed, Albert Einstein was on point when he said, “Three great forces rule the world: stupidity, fear, and greed.”
