Surely, this video illustrates the arrogance and abuse from those who claim to rule us. Make note of it. But what really caught my eye was the wide camera shot of this council of lords, this panel of oppressors, this board of brutes, this chamber of sociopaths, this assembly of assholes.
Sitting up high, giving themselves an air of regal superiority, I half expect the servile class attending this masquerade to bow and kneel before them in obedient supplication. Given the described setting, such action would certainly be appropriate and unsurprising.
When lowly citizen serfs attend one of these meetings, it is for one of two purposes: either the individual or group aims to convince these lords to bless them with the property and/or wealth belonging to other individuals (tax revenue and property transfers) or they are there to desperately beg and plead to retain a precious scrap of remaining freedom that is threatend or to regain a previously lost liberty. Such is the essence of collectivist government.
Neither action is worthy of a free living, peace loving, sovereign individual.
