The [American] is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a scoundrel, parasite, swindler, profiteer, boomer, journalist, it all runs off him like water off a duck's back. But call [America hierarchical] and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: "I've been found out."
Democracy is inherently a scam. "The king said I could win if I captured all his pawns, therefore we're not playing chess anymore." While the idiot pawn is distracted, the king is putting their side in checkmate. "Oh no you took another one of my pawns whatever shall I do." "Yes, I'm winning!" Great work, you gored that cape like nobody's business.
