2. Presidents' Bloodlines

2 1

It gets even weirder than the image above. From presidents of America, to former Kings and Queens in England, to ancient Greek and Roman rulers, and as far back as the pharaohs of ancient Egypt they have for the most part all shared a common bloodline. Doesn't sound like much of a "democracy" anymore, now does it? This key bloodline originated between the famous Egyptian queen, Cleopatra (60-30 B.C.) who had three children with the famous Roman politician and general Mark Antony, which continued on from there. Please click here to watch this video of how a 12 year old girl figured out that America's presidents are related. (click here to watch if you live in China) The whole idea of marrying within one's family to keep the money and power in the same hands and having a singular privileged superior ruling class over an un-privileged class is an age old idea that was at the core of "fascism." The word itself is believed to have come from the Italian word "fascis" meaning a "bundle" and the Latin word "fasces," which described the symbol of an ax surrounded by a bundle of wooden sticks, which stood for unity and authority in ancient Rome. While looking solely at the symbol's meaning that "dominance/power/authority" (represented by the ax) would only be achieved through the backdrop of a connected people/unity/oneness (represented by the bundle of wooden sticks), this could be seen as a "good" useful message to remember... however a quick look at history to notice how this symbol would only be used by dictators and privileged ruling classes, which always took advance of the less-privileged families, provides a new understanding. If you came from an un-privileged family, this symbol would never have meant something positive to you. Through this ideology, someone must be "on the bottom of the ladder" so to say, preventing true equality for all.

Could this mean that some of the ideological tenets from fascism have been carried over to America's form of capitalist democracy?
