The Immortal George Carlin Explains how the Game is Rigged, “It’s a Big Club and You Ain’t in It”!

In what can only be described as one of the most honest breakdowns of modern systems of control, legendary comedian George Carlin pulls no punches in this spot on monologue about America’s “real owners.”

“There’s a reason education SUCKS, and it’s the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it, be happy with what you’ve got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the REAL owners, now. The REAL owners, the BIG WEALTHY business interests that control things and make all the important decisions — forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. YOU DON’T. You have no choice. You have OWNERS. They OWN YOU. They own EVERYTHING. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations; they’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the State houses, the City Halls; they’ve got the judges in their back pockets, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear.

They gotcha by the BALLS. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying — lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want — they want MORE for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They DON’T want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that, that doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting FUCKED by the system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin’ years ago. They don’t want that.

You know what they want? They want OBEDIENT WORKERS. OBEDIENT WORKERS. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime, and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they’re comin’ for your SOCIAL SECURITY MONEY. They want your fuckin’ retirement money. They want it BACK. So they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it ALL from you sooner or later — ‘cuz they OWN this fuckin’ place. It’s a big CLUB. And YOU AIN’T IN IT. You and I are NOT IN the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long, beating you over the in their media telling you what to believe — what to think — and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged. And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care.

Good honest hard-workin people — white collar, blue collar — doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-workin people CONTINUE — these are people of modest means — continue to elect these RICH COCKSUCKERS who don’t GIVE a fuck about them. They don’t give a fuck about you, they don’t GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOU. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU — AT ALL. AT ALL. AT ALL. You know? And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care … that’s what the owners count on, the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes every day. Because the owners of this country know the truth — it’s called the American Dream … ‘cuz you have to be asleep to believe it.”

One thing is certain, George Carlin had a very clear understanding of how the system was set up and exactly who it was meant to serve. He lays bare the reality of just what the modern “American Dream” has become and sounds the societal alarm through his comedy, which to this day resonates clearly in 2015.

    What greater success do/can you have in life other than understanding the (valid) definition of “Love?”
    Simple logic shows that “Love” is always firstly dependent on “choice” as “Hope” because although you may choose to “Love” another (person or thing), there is no valid way of guaranteeing that “Love” will be returned/reciprocal; therefore it is a “blindtrust”/”Hope.” Consequently, “Love” is the best tangible manifestation of “Hope!” Nevertheless, as long as the one and only (“infinitely perfect”) ultimate rule/law of “E.O” is followed (“treat others how you want to be treated”) then, the respect of life and choices will exist. All humans have this ability to freely make choices.
    Selflessly,
    Ps. Without free-will (“choice”) humans would naturally or instinctively do the “right-thing” because there is no right, wrong, and no choice made for our best interests. But, most importantly, without free-will there is ultimately no choice to be made. Do “bad” people exist or is their lack of knowledge for self “Love” responsible for the (freely made) “choice” as the negative act?

  • Robyn, It’s funny you should quote a person whose only job in life was a journalist, where he lived off of the wealth of his friend Ingles, whose father was a wealthy oil tycoon. Btw, i would LOVE to see ANYONE with their own hands create the symmetry that machines do or, through the means of ease of production, make it less costly for people in those societies to live, perform their daily necessities and pursue their happiness.

    Here’s an example of your “specialized labor”…

Bits and pieces of parts of what he said, taken completely out of any context. He, infact, didn’t even use the word “government” once. “Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, and city halls. They got the judges in their back pocket. And they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else.”

The same officials that ALL have sworn an oath of office to defend and uphold the U.S. Constitution, are attempting to degrade it through misinformation to “The People”. It’s time for the U.S. people to stand up and defend the U.S. Constitution because those that have sworn the oath to do so refuse to uphold their oath of offices. #AreYouMadYet

    Associate Justice Brandeis (Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438)
    We must subject government officials to the same rules of conduct that we expect of the citizen. The very existence of the government is imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. As Brandeis puts it, “if the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that in the administration of the criminal law the end justifies the means—to declare that the government may commit crimes in order to secure the conviction of a private criminal—would bring terrible retribution. Against that pernicious doctrine this court should resolutely set its face.”

    • There’s a reason that education sucks, and it’s the same reason it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it. Be happy with what you’ve got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now, the big, wealthy, business interests that control all things and make the big decisions.

      Forget the politicians, they’re irrelevant.

      Politicians are put there to give you that idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations, and they’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the State Houses, and the City Halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear.

      They’ve got you by the balls.

      They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want — They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking.

      They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interest. You know something, they don’t want people that are smart enough to sit around their kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago.

      They don’t want that. You know what they want?

      They want obedient workers… Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime, and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.

      And now they’re coming for your social security money.

      They want your fucking retirement money; they want it back – so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street.

      And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later because they own this fucking place.

      It’s a big club – and you ain’t in it! You and I are not in the Big Club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you in the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to believe, what to think and what to buy.

      The table is tilted folks, the game is rigged.

      Nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. Good, honest, hard working people. White collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good, honest, hard working people continue – these are people of modest means – continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about them. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about…give a fuck about you! They don’t care about you at all, at all, at all.

      And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care.
      That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans are, and will probably remain, willfully ignorant of the big red, white, and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes everyday.

      Because the owners of this country know the truth, it’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
      – George Carlin

  • A genius in his observations!

  • Legend. RIP.

  • I’m changing my name to Carlin. I don’t believe anything my government tells me either.

    • Lennon is a good name too

    • Caleb Donley thank you. It’s John after the great man himself.

  • I loved the guy too, but he was part of the club! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnv08SceV1U

  • Everyone knows what’s going on. However most people chose to be controlled for the rest of their lives. Sad reality. This man was a genius.

  • Truth

  • Our modern Mark Twain! So perceptive.

  • Many times I read a news story and wonder what George Carlin would say about it, and then I realize he already addressed so many issues in his work, we know exactly what he would say, and in that way he is forever like a Grandfather to the world.

  • He spoke of his current – PRESENT! Message is nothing changed and there are many out there that will make sure it all stays the same!

  • i love people standing up and telling the truth tham

  • thank you

  • Didn’t believe in life after death, lives on in the hearts and minds of many.

  • Him, and men of his ilk, are sorely missed and needed today

  • Guess I must be dreaming, because I’m living it

  • Nicole Marley ROOFUS

  • Old news

  • So true

  • George knows

  • As he made millions from it. #Hypocrite

  • Cory Stephenson

  • Joshua L. Chapman

  • This was Old crotchety Carlin who at the end was more acerbic than funny. He got sad at the end. The old boogeyman…. “Them”, aka “they”. Some points in his rant but mostly over generalized wildly conspiratorial nonsense.

    • There’s a reason that education sucks, and it’s the same reason it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it. Be happy with what you’ve got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now, the big, wealthy, business interests that control all things and make the big decisions.

      Forget the politicians, they’re irrelevant.

      Politicians are put there to give you that idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations, and they’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the State Houses, and the City Halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear.

      They’ve got you by the balls.

      They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want — They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking.

      They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interest. You know something, they don’t want people that are smart enough to sit around their kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago.

      They don’t want that. You know what they want?

      They want obedient workers… Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime, and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.

    • I love Carlin. My all time favorite. While much of the sentiment here is based in some various levels of reality, overall it is very dark, overly generalized, and in some ways, utterly untrue. There is more opportunity in this country than not only our history, but in the history of human civilization. That means ever, that means 10,000 years of history. It is flawed and full of foibles and clearly there are millions not sharing equally in the spoils of our success. But all in all it is working better than any in the history of mankind. There is no second place. I agree people are willfully ignorant, but not about the “red white and blue d*** being jammed up their a**holes. ” They’re ignorant about the gratitude they should feel just for being here.

  • The U.S. dream is a night mare.

  • Hahaha
