Is it not the power elite's fault that it looks the way it does?
Power tends to corrupt
We humans have a hard time understanding and acknowledging that we ourselves are the cause of all problems. Citizens are political voters, opinion leaders, consumers, investors, entrepreneurs or politicians. If general wisdom had been higher in the population, the power elite would never have been able to control the economy and our lives to the present extent.
No advertising, sensational journalism, fake news or low-quality TV series attract people with a high level of wisdom..
