The Corporate Future

Create victimless crimes, imprison people (ideally in privatized prisons from which the ruling class gets kickbacks, or which they own) and then demonize them when they are freed to increase recidivism, because incarcerating the same people over and over minimizes the chance that the voters will notice. This is the right hand of the devil.

On the left hand, public welfare systems belittle you to keep you depressed and ineffectual, and you're cut off from their assistance if you manage to collect any savings or if your income rises to a level at which you can almost support yourself, keeping you dependent on the system infinitely. And once you've been beaten by the right hand, you have no recourse but to beg for handouts from the left because you've been stigmatized.

This is the future the corporate mindset has to offer the world: The Poverty Industry.
