Katniss Everdeen, the heroine of the Hunger Games, risks her life by hunting with a bow-and-arrow in the woods outside of the coal-mining town where she lives. Poaching is punishable by death. That’s the type of thing an oligarchy does.
In 1324, the Venetian Oligarchy restricted lucrative shipping trade-routes to themselves; freezing out the “small people.” (See this.)
Beginning around 1750, the British Oligarchy kicked the small people out of the countryside with the Inclosure Acts.
If the USA is an oligarchy, as I believe, we should see similar economic restrictions on average Americans. And that is exactly what we see in the Information Technology industry. For example, a few years ago IBM’s “Project Lean” instituted a “No Americans” hiring policy, reserving IT jobs for H1-B visa workers, brought in mainly from India. Of course, IBM is not alone; these types of IT jobs are essentially off-limits to American citizens at numerous tech companies and multinationals.
As we speak, the oligarchs are plotting to displace even more American workers with an even larger tidal wave of mass-immigration. This is the high-tech version of Britain’s Inclosure Acts, and is a brutal crackdown on American citizens.
