C’mon…you are an adult.
You are responsible for your welfare.
You were a child.
Your parents were responsible for your welfare.
(Even if they screwed up).
The Elite see themselves as the ultimate adults - responsible for everyone’s welfare.
But as time passes, and more laws fall on our shoulders, and indoctrination grows and infests us, and as the economy worsens, there will be fewer and fewer adults.
Perhaps that is why the Marvel movies are so popular.
You see Tony Stark living it up making a supercomputer to govern the world, Captain America breaking the laws of a dozen countries to save his friend etc., etc.
Here are adults. They have power. Unlike the audience.
