Yes, I am saying the people who are controlling is a "select" few. lol. Funny word -- select. Who selected them? Themselves. lol.
The statement I made that confused you and you asked me about is the difference between you and me. Yes, I know you meant you think anyone would enslave every if "given the chance." But, to be candid with you, sarx, "if given the chance" just doesn't hold up to reality. If reality is observed.
I observe and reflect on reality, not push my ideas into it. Which is to say, yes, sarx, I think you do push your ideas into reality rather than allow reality to inform you. I mentioned accidental history because for us, people of the present and who don't know the past (because we didn't live it), history is something that can be measured against the (people of the) present and recent history.
Accepting history school text books and books most people consume is wrong. But to think about it in relation to most individuals serves a picture of history that's close to accurate or is accurate, here understanding that generalities are used which is fine. Most individuals including myself and probably you don't have an inkling of want to control anyone let alone enslave anyone. To do that is to be out of control and of course to not live one's own life, a frustrating activity, I would think.
I don't know what else to say about this topic, sarx. Your observation of people and my observation of people are immensely different and I acknowledge the money changers of old are here today and that their activity is why there are problems, problems it looks to me that you don't attribute to them. That difference is thinking, making connections. Your view on this topic is arbitrary whereas mine is anything but. Mine is focused.
Good day, sarx.
School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me
