We mustn’t think America’s the only country with a Deep State whose interests may diverge radically from the people’s.
Remember this from five years ago? They wouldn’t let you take “large sums” of your own money out of the bank unless you could convince them it was for a “good reason.”
You’ve got to understand how deep statists think. In their minds, nothing you own is yours; everything ultimately belongs to the government. Including your labor and your flesh and blood.
Democrat campaign slogan from a few years ago: “The government’s the only thing we call belong to.”
They need taking down a peg.
