kennycan comments (Which set me off on yet another rant):
She works for us.
That’s what they want you to believe, but it’s no longer true, and hasn’t been for a good while.
She works for the people who pay her and keep her in power – that is, big money interests capable of giving her what she needs to gull the tools who think she works for them.
And why should she think she works for us? Do we behave as any intelligent, respectable employer would? Do we watch our employees, make sure they do their jobs, and punish or fire them when they screw up?
Of course we don’t. We’re “rationally ignorant.” We’re too busy to keep track of the people who control our lives, and we believe that our votes don’t make a difference.
We’re lousy bosses. No wonder our employees have gone rogue, completely out of control, and are stealing the business right our from under us.
