A Capitalist Oligarchy is where a few men, led by one charismatic leader, gain control of most of a country’s wealth, means of production, and communication channels and use them exclusively for their own personal and family enrichment. In a Capitalist Oligarchy at least 1/3 of the population remains enamored with this leadership, and – like useful idiots – are willing to cooperate blindly. This ‘base’ forms the core of the bureaucracy and thus facilitates the implementation of draconian and dogmatic laws and regulations… How do we get there? >
 Identify at least 1/3 of the population who will agree with you 90% of the time. Demographically, the largest group in the land: Whites with least education.
 Campaign appealing to people’s worst instincts. Fear. Envy. Hate.
 Demean most existing institutions. ‘I know more than the generals’. ‘The economy is a mess’. ‘What does the Pope know?’
 Lie your way to power, accepting propaganda help only from others like you. Putin.
 Once in power, make no attempt to unite people. Instead divide. Set one minority against another. Insult every conceivable group.
 Make the press ‘the enemy of the people’. And create your own news feed to feed your useful idiots.
 Discredit the independent judiciary. Insult judges. Imply you will not comply with court rulings.
 Empower ‘big money’ and Wall Street. Get them on your Cabinet. Promise them deregulation and tax breaks.
 Deconstruct government by dismantling departments. Education. Environmental Protection.
 Accept no internal dissent. Fire folks. Litmus test for mid-level bureaucratic positions.
 Politicize the armed forces. Have your campaign guy sit in on the Security Council.
 Create crisis where there is none. Ban Muslims. Build a wall. Deport illegals. Investigate voter fraud.
Most recent examples of these systems includes the longest running Capitalist Oligarchy in modern history, Cuba; the now nearly failed Venezuelan government; and of course, the mother of all Capitalist Oligarchy, Russia.
… and you thought it could never happen in the U.S.A.?!?
