Many have long suspected that the wealthiest humans would like to have the world to themselves. Aside from an underclass of servile worker bees, the elite, some think, would just as soon see the planet purged of ‘useless eaters.’

They’ve gotten awfully ballsy about admitting it, too. Billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s eponymous publication is infamous for pushing anti-family, veritably anti-human messages in a less-than-subtle fashion on millions of social media users without a care for the ‘optics.’ On Christmas Day, no less, Twitter users were treated to a gleeful jeremiad about how marriage, far from fulfilling young people’s romantic hopes and dreams, would instead suck young lovers’ bank accounts dry if they’d had the audacity to do normal American things like go to college – and run up the accompanying levels of crippling debt associated with that pursuit.

Not only was the article a stark slap in the face to the usual Christmastime warm fuzzies (which can be toxic in large doses, and should not be treated as the only acceptable fare for the season), but it was a week old. Taking an ancient article denouncing marriage as a money-suck (instead of one of the best predictors of success for the children born into that marriage) and re-running it on Christmas Day is the equivalent of rousting Mom and Dad out of bed, kicking Mom in her pregnant belly, and telling the pair they’re stealing productive time from the boss. Never mind that families who split up are putting their children at a major financial and psychosocial disadvantage – parents need to be looking out for number one!

Aside from the toxic byproducts of such built-in selfishness, if Bloomberg et al had their will, theirs would probably be the only families gathering round the table for lavish holiday dinners at all. No one else would have a family.

It makes sense, in a sick way, but the heavy-handed manner in which Bloomberg and similar publications seem to go about encouraging the working class to methodically divest themselves of their rights (like the right to own one’s home) is counterproductive, even before it extends to class-wide calls for self-destruction (warning: having children is scary, complicated, and time-consuming, not to mention bad for the climate! Better get a goldfish instead!).

It generates the sort of resentment that could one day erupt in a class war, one the billionaires could very easily lose but would definitely profit from in the process. AI robotic warriors have not been perfected yet, despite the self-satisfied bloviations of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency types, and could easily wind up shooting each other or their masters on the battlefield while human guerrillas fighting for the survival of the species torch Hamptons mansions and leave the precious wealthy heirs orphans, to be raised by those same guerrillas in the wilderness.

These publications revel in the kind of scare stories currently warning doom-scrolling readers that kids raised during the Covid-19 pandemic will grow up psychologically damaged and physically deformed, rather than stories explaining to terrified parents that there are ways to avoid such tragedies.

The central narrative is that raising a family is just too complicated, scary, dangerous, and otherwise risky for the average working-class American, so it should be left to the wealthy. After all, who can afford the range of ‘playground health’ specialists who’ve studied the latest cutting-edge methods of bandaging a skinned knee? Or the high-end multilingual nannies who’ve memorized a compendium of ancient lullabies to soothe even the fussiest babies to sleep – those who were Egyptian queens in a past life and require the appropriate musical accompaniment?

Ultra-wealthy people such as Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg himself aren’t remotely interested in adhering to the dictates they prescribe for the rest of humanity. Whenever one of their own gets married or has a child, the news is aflutter with photos of their decadent celebrations, with the subtext written in invisible type as tall as the buildings they own: you can’t afford this, so don’t embarrass yourself by trying. Publications that once might have cooed over some Martha Stewart-esque resourcefulness of a middle-class mom sewing bridesmaid dresses for her daughter’s closest friends now turn their noses up at such plebeian silliness – as if a mere human can measure up to the chillingly robotic precision billions of wasted dollars can buy.

Unfortunately, the ‘influencer’ culture of social media means it takes just a few of these self-absorbed individuals to convince the entirety of bourgeois society to follow in their footsteps – or at least to lust after doing so. One can only imagine the glee with which 21st-century eugenicists read headlines such as “On the Brink of Collapse: America’s Declining Population Growth,” which outlines how Americans are having fewer children every year, describing how half the states in the union have had more deaths than births, bucking ill-informed predictions that had suggested the Covid-19 lockdowns would lead to a baby boom as couples trapped inside would resort to ‘doing what comes naturally’ and spawn to their hearts’ content.

Phenomena such as year after year of record-breaking opioid overdose deaths indicate nothing so much as a mass abandonment of hope by the masses, who know they will never be able to afford the reality they were sold growing up, and feel – thanks to ruling-class mouthpieces such as the Western media establishment – they have no other choice.

After all, it’s difficult to spawn without concern for who’s going to feed the little ones, and, thanks to Bloomberg and its ilk, there is no longer a social safety net just around the corner to feed the needy or bridge the gap from paycheck to paycheck (assuming there’s a paycheck to be had at all in the post-Covid dystopia).

The self-fulfilling prophecy of neoliberalism has ensured that Americans truly have no choice but to become permanent renters, that young couples cannot help but shoulder fat debt burdens if they want to ‘get somewhere’ in this world, and that hope is far too costly to fit into a working-class budget. The New Normal demands we do more with less – or die trying. And the ruling class, it seems, would prefer the latter.

Something to consider after the Black Plague.

When the royalty needed labor done after half the population died, they ended up paying a whole lot more for the things they needed. Labor was paid a premium, and pretty soon, the wealth disparity nearly vanished.

So, when these assholes can’t repair their robots, or if their robots decide they’re tired of the bullshit, they’re going to want people to work for them.

That said, I promise you, these elites think they’re going to pull a Thanos and watch half the people of this planet die off without there being a serious penalty to be paid, they are greatly mistaken.

I stated from the beginning that this COVID-19 thing was a hoax, and I was right. That PCR test thing coming out, plus the Omicron Moronic Variant being more or less the common cold, are more exposures of the lies they have been spewing for the last 2 years. It was about getting rid of the patriots on one side with the deposing of Trump, while removing the surplus socialists with the vaccine.

DEAGEL was not kidding around when they said 2/3rds of the population of this country would die, without a shot fired. 60 percent of Americans with that shit in their bodies are going to die off rapidly and with there being such a rapid die off, they will be easily replaced by illegal aliens looking for a better job.

That is why they are exempt from the vaccine.

Yes, and the feeling is mutual.

It doesn't matter. If they kill all but 100 million of us, it will not take long to repopulate the earth. Anyway,they will start fighting among themselves because the psychopaths will want to rule and many will not agree. At least there will be a lot of freedom because there will be so much empty land to available.

This time the McGuffin is revealed less than 100 words from the top -- "Bloomberg". There's a certain verifiably anti-human crowd out there openly spewing murderous hatred against whites, freethinkers, conservatives ad inf. Their names sometimes include bloom or berg.

Greta Thunberg comes to mind.

But the worst, globally speaking, are the Rothschild clan.

Don't forget the Balfour Declaration was presented to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. The Rothschild's have been in that bunch from the start. ;)

Thunberg is almost certainly kikish -- her parents are so kookish.

And every time Greta makes a public appearance there are several thugs nearby. Bodyguards or security of course. ;)

Wow, hadn't noticed that. So Orwellian, that creature.

Nothing would make the rulers any happier than everyone over 65, except themselves, kicking the bucket tomorrow.
