The President cabinet picks.

Are we, the majority class of America, becoming the peasants to the oligarchy?

In the beginning of this year I, like many other’s, was unfamiliar with the term oligarchy. Also like many of you, I could feel the transition of power being undertaken throughout the year. So, as a matter of curiosity, I began to look into the situation.

As the economy undergoes a shift in the control of wealth, we as a society have seen a steady increase in the class known as “super rich.” All the while, the middle class is in a free fall.

Since the inauguration of the President-elect, as with every President-elect throughout history, there has been the choosing of 14 members of the cabinet whose purpose is to advise the president on the best course of action in a given situation. Unlike any other time in history, this cabinet is made up of some of the most wealthy people from across the country. The combined wealth of Trump’s cabinet is estimated at a staggering 11 billion dollars an amount that dwarfs any other time in history.

The President-elect is placing like minded people, of similar wealth, (many of which, unqualified for the position) around him, in what some must see as an effort to create a ruling class to lead over the serfs and peasants. We will be guided by the gilded, lead by the elite, and controlled by the king’s court.

At what point will we have to start bowing and asking with trepidation, “yes your Grace?”

What do you think?
