Paul Craig Roberts wrote, “His reward for speaking out was to have his tenure contract bought out by BYU, many believe under orders from the federal government backed up with the threat that all federal support of science at BYU would be terminated unless Stephen Jones was.” — 9/11 Destroyed America
People get born into the world as it exists so the new ones don’t know how it used to be so to them tight living standards are normal. They don’t know that it used to be a much higher standard of living. And so it is entirely possible the entire population will accept this if it is gradual over time. If it is quick or sudden, they may revolt. We just don’t know how it will play out. — Paul Craig Roberts. Jump to 15:39

Trump was elected because he said:
“Those who control the levers of power in Washington and the global special interests they partner with, don’t have your good in mind. It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities. The only thing that can stop this corrupt machine is you.”
If Trump can defeat the oligarchy and save America, he can go down in history as Trump the Great. I think that this prospect appeals to Trump more than more wealth. Instead of trying to tear him down in advance, he should be supported. With Trump’s determination and the people’s support, change from the top down is possible. Otherwise, change has to come from the bottom up, and that means an awful lot of blood in the streets.
