The truth about money

This is not from the left. Nor the paranoid right. But it is the truth.  Money has taken over everything. And its current bout of flu is infecting us all. The correctives applied in Washington, London, Ottawa and elsewhere are aimed at propping up money. They are not meant to make things right. To correct the vast imbalances of the past decades will take more than public funds pumped into private coffers. In fact that's entirely the wrong way to go about it. The coming shakedown will affect the changes but our governments and money managers will be behind the curve. We don't matter all that much. Read this and see what I mean. But don't stop there. Read more and blog, share, post and think. It's got to come from us, our ilk, the mobs and masses and wise crowds who know, truly know, that everything being done now to stave off an already arrived disaster is wrong. Disastrous in itself because it bankrupts the future. Stop. Enough. 

Isn't it time?

For countries like Canada to get rid of the notion of foreign heads of state? See Rick Mercer's take.

I mean, I thought we (and Australia and New Zealand) were sovereign independent states. Turns out we're not. We make our new citizens swear allegiance to a German-Greek-vaguely north European British family that mostly lives in London and Scotland. Why?

Money. No Money.

For the take, for the ideas expressed simply and in ways we all can understand. May I suggest  this blog. As we go down the tubes, it will make the swirling maelstrom more manageable.
