Divide et impera - Philip II of Macedon

It’s increasingly obvious that the major political parties are two sides of the same coin.

Both are relentless in their effort to flip the uniquely American notion that government exists to serve the people to the historic reality that people are purposed to serve government.

Trump threatens this aspiration by exposing and attempting to dismantle it. This scares those accustomed to the status quo which allows them and their wealthy puppet masters to live large on the backs of the common herd.

Meanwhile, we’re extolled to “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”
