scrounge

I mean, what’s the elections? You know, two guys, same background, wealth, political influence, went to the same elite university, joined the same secret society where you’re trained to be a ruler – they both can run because they’re financed by the same corporate institutions.

Noam Chomsky.

i dislike reading that our governing elite is quick to label people scroungers. scroungers.as a political notion in a land which has maintained it’s royalty makes me think alienation is a long term social plan. scrounging as a an evocation of scum. interesting the class connotations in terms of it’s etymology:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrounger
