In some countries, most notably in the United States of America, the link between Pauline Judeo-Christianity, politics, big business, and the military industrial congressional complex is especially conspicuous and consequential. Some at the top, who, in previous times were referred to as the “Robber Barons” and “the masters of mankind,” and who are now more commonly referred to as plutocrats and oligarchs, have been able to use this conglomerate for their own advantage. Through the use of “think tanks,” they have devised ways in which to not only foment an environment of moral skepticism (i.e., moral particularism)—especially in regards to honesty and avarice—but convince the general populace to replace their own self-interest, as well as the welfare of the environment, with that of the wealthy corporate elite. By disseminating disinformation (i.e., social constructivism) that exploit the fears, the prejudices, and the ignorance of the people, this faction has been able to take advantage of low-information voters—many of which themselves are abject members of the precariat. The plutocrats execute this reckless and unethical campaign while simultaneously aligning themselves with the cherished symbols of tradition (e.g, Bible; Constitution; flag; etc.) (i.e., the hyperreal simulation), which they use to conceal the sociopathic greed that underlies their patriotic pretense. This stratagem has been, for the most part, surprisingly effective.
