What my mind isn't open to
..is a fair bit, actually.
So, you've revealed that you are really quite fearful of an attack on yourself, as part of the institution of global finance. You don't actually seem too bothered about the erosion of our democratic rights, or that the current 'crisis' is in fact just one more indication that those in charge have fecked things up, or that those same people have acted not in the interests of people, but to line their own pockets, whilst creating the illusion that economies are 'strong' and 'growing'.
Many of your posts reveal a selfishness within you; one which you praps aren't even aware of yourself, such is your inability to be objective.
Still, you probbly can't help it.
The bubble has burst. It was always going to burst. The big bosses knew it was going to burst. Indeed, anyone with half an ounce of intelligence knew it was going to burst.
So, what did these bankers, and global leaders do, to prevent or lessen the impact of the economy crashing? Did they ensure measures were in place, to protect people's jobs, homes, livelihoods? Have they looked at alternatives to oil, to provide energy, and invested sufficient time and effort into new projects? Have they considered the social and environmental impact of rampant Capitalism, on people everywhere?
Have they bollocks. They've been too busy lining their own pockets, awarding themselves huge bonuses, and consolidating their grip on power.
That's what this is all about. That's why so many people are angry. And that's why there is a long overdue need to take away the power that these elite few have had over all of us, for far too long. Because they have become far too corrupt, with power and greed. The power to run a society should lie with Democracy, not with money.
On a National level, people are losing their jobs and homes. On a Global level, people are dying in wars, of disease, poverty and famine. something needs to change, and change quickly.
Maybe you can't see this, though. Maybe your head is too far up your own arse. Or maybe you've just lost the ability to think for yourself.
No use whining on about blaming banks or whatever. We know they are largely responsible; they are institutions set up to serve the interests of an elite few, not for the Greater Good of all people. You are just a cog in the machine, disposable, expendable. No-one cares about you.
But that shoon't stop you caring about anyone else.
