Now here's a headline for you

See what I mean:

Here is something from that article:

See I think there are two ways in which people are controlled. First of all frighten people and secondly, demoralize them. An educated, healthy and confident nation is harder to govern, and I think there's an element in the thinking of some people; we don't want people to be educated, healthy and confident because they would get out of control. The top 1% of the world's population owns 80% of the worlds wealth its incredible that people put up with it. But their poor, their demoralized, their frightened and therefore they think perhaps the safest thing to do is to take orders and hope for the best.

- Tony Benn, former British politician

And don't we do that in the good old U.S. of A.? Subject the populace to fear and demoralization, I mean?

Do go read the rest of the article. The comments are illuminating as well.

    Benn is clearly not educated if he thinks "their" = "they're".
    Either that or he's talking to someone who should never have been let out of high school.
