The problem is that nations and their citizens owe a lot of money to the hyper-rich bastards who try to steal elections and keep us stupid so we won’t notice the oceans crashing into our cities or ask how the financial crisis happened. They want control so they can force us to repay those loans.

Just once, I’d like to hear a politician point out that there is an easy way to pay those debts: we tax the hell out of the plutocrats and use that money to “shore up the banks and pay off loans”.
