The Mighty Will Fall



A Song of Ice & Fire is a fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin. A Game of Thrones was the first book in the series, and is now an HBO series.

In a later book in the series, an amoral, sociopathic, narcissistic queen makes a calculated political move to retain power by giving that society’s version of “The Church”—which had been carefully controlled and limited until then—lots of new powers and authority. But she miscalculated, and “The Church” took over and destroyed her.

This should be a lesson for the ever-greedier, thieving, amoral big corporations and other filthy rich who are currently bankrolling and conspiring with the “Christian Dominionists” (i.e., the Catholic, Mormon and many Protestant Evangelical churches) as they are attempting to take over the United States and the world.

I suspect this monster the filthy rich are putting into power to maximize their own wealth and power is going to eventually turn around and destroy them.
