  1. As long as a ‘select’ few are allowed to dominate and the masses follow them blindly, continuing to open their wallet or slide their credit card for the newest and latest, nothing will change.
    The average person does not realise that every time they make a purchase or drive their car, they are supporting those whom they decry. Enriching elitist coffers will never help the proliteriat nor will it help to even gap. Even small changes can be miraculous and in turn lead to more substantial ones.

      1. “How can anyone govern a nation that has two hundred and forty-six kinds of cheese?” Charles de Gaulle
        I might add there are now another three hundred plus to that count. It is a nation of individuals and they cannot and will not be led like sheep. Viva la France!
        Just add it to the list of why I left there and have no intention of returning. For once, I fit in. 🙂

      2. I battled while I was there. I’ve moved on to a very different ‘state’. Here the sheep are on four legs and are only sheared once a year.
