rich and powerfulA Princeton University study confirmed what many Americans take for granted, which is the United States is an oligarchy.

An oligarchy is a country that is controlled by a small group of people rather than a republic, in which power is exercised by the people through elected representatives.

The study analyzed policy preferences of average Americans and economic elites across 20 years. The professors concluded that economic elites hold sway over U.S. policy, writing:

“A proposed policy change with low support among economically elite Americans (one-out-of-five in favor) is adopted only about 18% of the time, while a proposed change with high support (four-out-of-five in favor) is adopted about 45% of the time.”

Further, when even a large majority of Americans want a policy to change, they generally don’t get what they want due to the establishment’s inherent bias for the status quo.

children of god cover FINALCHILDREN OF GOD is now available to order in paperback and pre-order for the Kindle. The Kindle version will be released May 18.

In 2005, the Family of God walked out into a California desert to await the end of the world. Three years later, the cult destroyed itself in mass suicide and massacre. Plagued by guilt and PTSD, the survivors couldn’t talk about their experience until a psychiatrist treated them with poetry therapy, which allowed them to finally express themselves.

Ranging in form from haiku to sonnets, this collection is their stories in verse, expressing hope, love, faith, regret, and pain. In these apocalyptic dreams, the survivors find their voice and tell why they joined the cult, what they hoped to achieve, how they failed, and the night of the massacre.
