There is a video on YouTube called "Don't Be A Sucker." It was created by the US government during WWII to combat just this sort of garbage. It is about 20 minutes long and is very well done.

The key part - and I'm paraphrasing - happens just after a WASPy looking guy has been listening to a man deliver a soapbox harangue about how foreigners and minorities are taking all the jobs, and so forth. He just keeps picking on group after group. The WASPy guy is enthralled. The orator is saying everything he wants to hear.

Eventually, the orator picks on Freemasons. Now the WASPy guy says, "Hey, wait a minute! I'M a Mason!" So the guy next to him says, "You liked him until he said that, didn't you?"

He then continues: "Beware of this kind of divisive talk. Whenever people are saying these kinds of things, SOMEONE'S GOING TO BENEFIT FROM IT, AND IT ISN'T GOING TO BE YOU."

He explains about how the Nazis promised the German people the sun, the moon, and the stars; and then proceeded to treat them like crap. They overworked them, lied to them, and committed crimes in their name. Nobody got what was promised. It was all a ploy to give powerful men unchecked power, and it worked because there are always powerful men who know how to exploit people's fears. They conjure up boogeymen and position themselves as the solution, knowing that frightened, weak-minded people are easily misled. Of course, it's always a big lie.

Truly, this old war film is a clarion call: DON'T BE A SUCKER!!!

This book is basically a love letter to the Koch brothers and other 1%ers who look on the rest of humanity as a teeming mass of filthy insects. At the center of their minds - and Levin's - are howling voids that demand infinite money. But these voids can never be filled. No number of billions of dollars will ever be enough for them to be satisfied. They must have as much money as possible.

They want to put an end to welfare, Medicare, and Medicaid. They want to put an end to anything that could possibly result in them being taxed for anything that doesn't benefit them directly. If a senior citizen who's too old and sick to work has to eat dog food or starve because their pills are too expensive, or spend winter without heat, they don't care. If some kid through no fault of their own is malnourished due to cutting food stamps or school lunch programs, their attitude is, "Let them eat cake."

The Kochs are trying to make a Constitutional Convention, and their plan is to push these very amendments.

Why do you suppose that is???

Do you suppose it's for the benefit of the common citizen???

Do you imagine they're on your side???

They're not. They're on THEIR side. WE ARE ALL DISGUSTING INSECTS TO THEM AND NOTHING MORE.

DON'T BE A SUCKER!!! THEIR RHETORIC IS INTENDED TO BENEFIT ***THEM***!!! NOT YOU!!!
