"George Carlin was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, actor, writer, and an author who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums."
Carlin was a very popular comedian and had a long career. I had only watched him couple of times when he was relatively younger. Looks like he got better in his old age. Below is my translation (in blue) of his comments (in black) in the language that I have used in my past commentaries. the one below is considered his best commentary.
George Carlin on the American Dream (with transcript)
But there's a reason. There's a reason. There's a reason for this, there's a reason education SUCKS, and it's the same reason it will never, ever, EVER be fixed. It's never going to get any better, don't look for it, be happy with what you've got. Because the owners, the owners of this country don't want that.
The primary purpose of education in America is to train people to serve the needs of business, including the brainwashing necessary to serve them and thank them for the jobs.
I'm talking about the real owners now, the BIG owners! The Wealthy... the REAL owners! The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions.
Forget the politicians. They are irrelevant. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice! You have OWNERS! They OWN YOU. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They've long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear.
These are the people, super rich and big business, that I call Crooks. I date the transformation of the American econo-political system into the System of the Crooks, by the Crooks, and for the Crooks, to 1995.
They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying, to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I'll tell you what they don't want:
They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them. Thats against their interests.
Thats right. They don't want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they're getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. They don't want that!
That is what I call systematic BREEDING of dopes and political morons!
You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shitty jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they're coming for your Social Security money. They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this fucking place! It's a big club, and you ain't in it! You, and I, are not in the big club.
Dopiest of the "You, and I," belong to the club of registered voters who vote for the two major parties.
By the way, it's the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy.
Power of P-R-O-P-A-G-A-N-D-A. All dopes and morons think that propaganda doesn't work on them and only on others!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One born-and-bred American dope who votes in all presidential elections told me that he is correctly informed. He happens to be one of the least informed and takes very little interest in history. He is a very responsible individual when it comes his own affairs.
The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care! Good honest hard-working people; white collar, blue collar it doesn't matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means, continue to elect these rich cock suckers who don't give a fuck about you....they don't give a fuck about you... they don't give a FUCK about you.
Carlin died in 2008 and had no knowledge of Trump candidacy. Here he is talking about the Trump voters who "elect these rich cock suckers who don't give a fuck about you....they don't give a fuck about you... they don't give a FUCK about you."
They don't care about you at all... at all... AT ALL. And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Thats what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick thats being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth.
Crooks know the truth, or the reality of the system, and dopes are willfully ignorant and in total denial of their role.
It's called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
That is the power of the political DOPE!
