When people don’t have access to power, they don’t have power.
The Preservation Society neglected to include this proposition in Ruling Class Axioms. In many ways this principle lies at the heart of ruling class society. Elections, whether for presidents or Brexit, are more or less founded on the idea that the rank-and-file are of the belief that they decide who is to be in charge or what direction to go in, yet the average individual has no access or connection to Washington or the EU’s capitol in Brussels, never mind (local) London. Nor do most have any idea what to do in the event that power acts against their wishes. In other words, the masses have no access to power, ergo, they have no power. That’s what it comes down to.
