Prof. John A. Wilson:

"The previously modest temples in Egypt grew in physical size, in personnel, in land, and in total property, until they became the dominating factor in Egyptian political, social, and economic life. It has been estimated that, after the Empire had had three hundred years of active life, the Egyptian temples owned one out of every five inhabitants of the nation and owned almost one third of the cultivable land. Naturally the temples were interested in perpetuating and tightening a system which was so greatly to their advantage.

In order to secure their advantage, they had to insist on the group solidarity of the people for the national interest which had made the temples rich and strong. Ultimately they swallowed up not only the people but also the pharaoh."

Professor Wilson gives a "hypothetical" example to illustrate the point:

"It is just as if Americans should turn gradually to a socialistic government and a rationalistic ethics while repeating the slogans of democracy and Calvinistic Protestantism; they would be unaware of the change for a long time after it had been effective."

THIS MAY HAVE SEEMED VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE IN 1946 — BUT IT WAS ALREADY WELL UNDER WAY.

"When the revolution was complete, we find that the goals of life had shifted from a vigorous, individualistic existence in this world, to a conforming and formalistic life in this world. As far as the individual Egyptian was concerned, his horizon of opportunity had become circumscribed; he was advised to submit because he was presented with an escape from this world's limitations by a promise of better things in the next world. Those better things were now less of his own agency and more the gift of the gods."

HAVE YOU NOTICED HOW MUCH LIKE TEMPLES FEDERAL RESERVE BUILDINGS LOOK?

It is not that history repeats itself. Its is just that the rich are determined to get richer at the expense of the rest of us, and they keep developing more diabolical schemes to accomplish that. Don't depend on their education: wise up — read and research history for yourself — you will at least know why the more things change the more they stay the same.
