Capitalism, which has always represented only the topmost tier of the financially affluent and their banks—those premier criminal organs of chicanery and fraud—convinced politicians and courts—like a father lecturing his children—that government, while in theory it exists to benefit The People, in fact owes allegiance only to the money elite that set it up and owns it.
