Wildartist, you’ve nailed it. “TPTB are raping the country,” and the victims are so distracted, they don’t realize it. TPTB evidently hope and expect the caliphate to eventually be their planetary enforcers, since all the Euro-derived forms of control have eventually burned themselves out, or tried to overtake their financiers. Who knows what they’ll do when sharia blows up.
But sadly, sheeple, worldwide, can’t be bothered to learn. Heck, they can’t even be bothered to notice … which is why we’re here.
