"GRANDPA, WHAT WAS FREEDOM LIKE?"
Why He Can't Answer That Question:
The first step down was WELFARE FOR THE RICH, which has been going on since 1865 in America, having been going on in every Papist-controlled monarchy on Earth for millennia before that.
This necessitated the institutionalizing of central banks to rob the people through inflation and income tax to rob them further, but the fatal mistake came in 1932 with social security, welfare & "public education" (government propagandizing): once everyone was on the fiat currency narcotic handout and being dumbed-down to believe these political bribes were a "right", the return of Papist monarchy disguised as "social justice" (socialism) was assured.
Now all that is needed is for the cheap veneers of religion & democracy under which this enslaving abomination masquerades to drop away, and we'll see that slavery is not only "back" in the USA, it never really left - The road to the plantation was a circle-drive paved with spiritualistic altruism.
Worst of all, everyone believes they're actually FREE!!!
