  1. I disagree with the thesis that the rich rule America. As I see it, the money rules America and the rich are just hosts for the money. We’ve created powerful, largely automated, systems that operate on the ‘meta-instruction’ to create ever larger accumulations of money. Remove the current wealthy, and the system will simply find other ‘hosts’ to build its piles of money around. The ‘lucky’ parties (the 1%, who are actually as interchangeable as any low-level employee) will then find their own freedom of action constrained by the money that attaches itself to them. A sad denouement. As a race, we’ve already ceded our free-will to our creations.
