It may seem to people who suffer from what they view to be oppression from an all powerful government, (usually that in Washington but it almost always happens in other places as well) that we, are the oppressed and they are the oppressors.
But it is never that simple. People believe that George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” is a satire on Socialism, where all the pigs start out as equal but later some become more equal.
But Orwell’s parable was the same as when the community of Macondo was formed in Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s “One Hundred Years of Solitude”.
At first everyone is equal, then two generations down the line there is hierarchical rule.
What is it about human beings that recreates this pattern pretty much everywhere and throughout history, unless it is something in our collective subconscious that wants it?
Here the brilliant Robert Foster, probably the best political comedian alive takes a look at this from Down Under.
Robert is one fast talking dude. So turn on the subtitles or you will miss much of his routine.
