The American Dream – George Carlin

“It’s never gonna get any better. Don’t look for it. Be happy with what you got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that.

I’m talking about the real owners, now. The REAL owners. The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice.  You don’t, you have no choice; you have owners. They own youThey own everything.

They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they’ve got the judges in their back pockets, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear.

They gotcha by the balls!

They want obedient workers. Obedient Workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paper work and just dumb enough to passively accept jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your social security money so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street.

It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club.

The owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.

But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them, that’s against their interest.” ~George Carlin
