Portrait of the Oligarch

The Oligarch of Omaha

The Oligarch of Omaha

You want everybody educated to their potential. You want people to reach their potential. That still won’t work for some people in a highly developed market system. I mean if this were a sports-based system, you could give me a PhD in football, and I could practice eight hours a day, and I might be able to carry the water from, not onto the field, but from the locker room to the bench. There’s just some people don’t fit well into a highly skilled market-based economy.  They’re perfectly decent citizens. We’ll send them off to Afghanistan, but they are not going to command a big price.” ~ Warren Buffet, “Some people just don’t fit…”

Imagine a room somewhere in the world where big men with very big bank accounts and even bigger secrets gather behind closed doors. While we diddle over what to call a man who thinks he’s a woman, and dither over who can marry what, they are busy wallpapering their kingdom with our miserable hides. We are cattle to them, and nothing more. Period!

“Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” ~ Henry Kissinger

Men like Buffet, Kissinger and Soros see themselves as Gods. Their divine self-perceptions are the result of a lifetime surrounded by teams of “yes-men and women” who filter and feed them a never-ending parade of ego-stroking opportunists. Add to this grizzly list of offensive Scrooges the rapidly-growing ranks of Midas-Touch-Millennials topped by Mark Zuckerberg, and a most disturbing pattern begins to emerge…

“People are getting tired of pretending to be perfect and are interested in someone more willing to be honest about the fact that we are all gross nightmares,” ~ Amy Schumer #15 on the Vanity Fair list of “the most important visionaries, investors, and cultural leaders in ‘the Year of the Unicorn.’” Her most anticipated technology? “A vibrator that pays you compliments.” What else would one expect from someone genetically tied to Senator Chuck Schumer…the ultimate poster boy of the Ruling Class Elite!

Nowhere in this geek & geezer-stuffed Oligarch Class is there a whisper of honest morality! Nowhere in their collective vision of investment and leadership is there the trace of a man or woman who puts God before him or herself. In fact, they have made themselves Gods unto themselves, needing only the herd of mindless fools to worship and adore them. Amy Schumer’s quote is stunning in its unintended revelation…you can’t take in the Portrait of the Oligarch without observing the American Herd as the “gross nightmare” she describes to a T! In one sentence, she has painted her own portrait of the American People as one of complete and abject FAILURE…and worse. She paints it as failure to be proud of!

What you will not see in the Portrait of the Oligarch is the gripping fear behind the eyes and beneath the layers of makeup and façade. It is the fear of its own true nature and reliance on the façade that hides it from the world. It is the fear of its own dependency on power, force, control and persuasion, absent the presence of true love. And its deepest fear is of the one who will stand up to expose the charade, strike the right chord, and turn the herd. It keeps them up at night…
