Can’t see how things have changed all that much

Definition of feudalism for English Language Learners

  • : a social system that existed in Europe during the Middle Ages in which people worked and fought for nobles who gave them protection and the use of land in return

In the U.S. the government basically owns all the land. Don’t think so? Try not paying your taxes. Your land will be taken back by it’s true owner.

Our  nobles are basically the elites who run the government, media, and finance operations. We don’t have to bow to them, because the real “powers that be” would never be caught within 10000 feet of you. They are nameless and faceless and thus can never be deposed or beheaded.

The nobles back then technically owed the serfs protection. Today the children of lower and middle classes fight in wars around the globe that have little to do with protecting the legal rights or physical assets of rank and file citizens.

Nope, they may have churched it up a bit, but can’t see much difference between then and now.
