Don't be tools and fools of the elites

Don't be tools and fools of the elites | Bangkok Post: opinion

We humans have a self-serving need to believe we are the good guys, or are on the side of what we believe is righteous. But the problem is that we tend to see the world through our own bias and prejudice.

Conflicts are not motivated by moral goodness or democracy. Those values are created by men and therefore they can and will be manipulated by men in order to achieve power. 

Conflicts are but power struggles where the winner gets to write history and call himself morally good and democratically legitimate.  At the end of the day, it is the elites, the rich and powerful, who will always win. This is because victory requires money and power.
