At the end of the game,
pawns and kings
into the same box.
This Power Elite directly employs several millions of the country´s working force in its factories, offices and stores, controls many millions more by lending them the money to buy its products, and, through its ownership of the media of mass communication, influences the thoughts, the feelings and the actions of virtually everybody. To parody the words of W. Churchill, never have so many been manipulated so much by few.
I’ll love you, dear,
I’ll love you till China and Africa meet
and the river jumps over the mountain
and the salmon sing in the street.
–W. H. Auden
