From: the Ruling Class
To: the Worker Bee
Date: 6,500 BCE
My Dear Worker Bee,
Do not be concerned with how difficult your life is, making us wealthy, or how we deceived you into exploiting the planet's resources, to create wealth for us to fulfill our selfish greed and desires, for we promise you that there is a heavenly paradise for you (your fictitious soul) to live in forever, once you have finished working your sorry-ass off for us.
By the way, have we mentioned how bad and sinful you are today? You should go to the Temple-Church and repent as soon as possible, and ask for forgiveness. Be sure to pay any tithing that is past due on your account, while you are there confessing your sins; and be sure to use the latest definitions of sin that we gave you, which will change on occasion to fit our wealth-generating strategic needs, regardless our your needs.
In the future, don't be overly concerned about losing your natural skills for (1) hunting and gathering food to feed yourself, (2) building yourself a shelter, (3) finding your own water source, (4) or getting rid of your waste products. We will be launching a new campaign to make you more dependent on us by (1) building grocery stores so that you will have to buy food from us (because we will own all the land -making it impossible for you to hunt and gather food on your own), (2) building ready made homes that you will have to buy from us, along with the land that the home sits on, (3) building water treatment plants so that you will have to buy drinking water from us (because we will own all the water rights), (4) building waste treatment plants so that you will have to pay us to get rid of your waste products (because we will make it illegal to get rid of your waste products for free, wherever you want). I almost forgot, we will also be convincing you that these are all modern conveniences; all you have to do is come up with the money to pay us for it all, including the taxes.
Our prophets (stockbrokers) are telling us that since you will no longer be working to hunt and gather your own food, and will need money to buy food from us, you will be working for us in the future. The distance between your home and your place of work will be a significant distance, making it impossible for you to get to work, on time, by just walking. It is my understanding that there will be something called an "automobile" invented, that you will be able to buy from us to get you to work on time, so that you will be able to earn enough money to pay for everything we have mentioned earlier. This "automobile" will require a type of fuel which will be called "gasoline," which you will also have to buy from us; including the required accessories, such as license plates and "automobile" insurance.
This should complete the major portion of our strategic plan for you to become completely dependent upon us. Next week we will send you a memo concerning some other "need-to-buy" items coming in the future that will be called health care, prescription drugs, health insurance, and life insurance.
With love, affection, and sincere concern for your well-being,
The Ruling Class
P.S. We feel a little guilty and would like to apologize for fooling you into believing that an invisible supernatural-surrogate parent and inexpensive 24-hour-per-day invisible police force, (God), gave us land that rightly belongs to everyone equally, but the priests among us advise against it; and besides that would put them out of a job of keeping the hoax
