Power fits into 4 broad categories.
Form most to least important
Land Ownership
Military Control
Financial Control
IP ownership.

The only one of those not totally dominated by the "royal families" of the world is IP ownership, and that is as easy to loose as a toothbrush.

As I posted earlier: The monarchy-feudalism analogy is revealing because people now serve corporations directly - without middlemen. For example, as in the past, debt is/will be inherited and children are born into servitude. Studying the analogy shows how and why we are not free.

Here's an update on one of the latest shuffles. Makes me wonder how long it will be before we have the United States of Pepsi or whatever - and it won't matter where the president was born.

The combined company will have 8 brands worth over $1 billion each.

Thanks.
And backatcha. ...Debtors prisons were outlawed in the early 1800's. Now they're back. Looks to be part of the strategy...



John Oliver goes off on a terrible practice that was supposed to be outlawed in the 1830s.

Debtors prisons' — throwing people in jail for owing money — are theoretically illegal. The federal government outlawed them in 1833, and most states followed shortly thereafter. And yet, shady cities and towns across America are bringing them back.

In the west maybe, not so much everywhere else:

But, otoh, in this day and age, modern day serfs deserve everything they get. I don't have a huge amount of sympathy for them.

Leaning much more toward the "survival of the fittest" ethos in these days, which I know isn't that pleasant, but f' it.

But then there's the movement to the "cashless society" - seems to moving along more quickly in Europe. And it can only serve corporations in the end.


The move to a cashless society won’t happen overnight. Instead, it is being implemented very slowly and systematically in a series of incremental steps.

All over the planet, for security reasons, governments are starting to place restrictions on the use of cash. As citizens, we are being told that this is being done to thwart criminals, terrorists, drug runners, money launderers and tax evaders. Other forms of payment are much easier for governments to track, and so they very much prefer them. But we are rapidly getting to the point where the use of cash is considered to be a “suspicious activity” all by itself.

These days, if you pay a hotel bill with cash or if you pay for several hundred dollars worth of goods at a store with cash you are probably going to get looked at funny. You see, the truth is that we have already been trained to regard the use of large amounts of cash to be unusual. The next step will be to formally ban large cash transactions like France and other countries in Europe are already doing.

Starting in September, cash transactions of more than 1,000 euros will be banned in France. ...

...MORE...

...And with each passing year the restrictions on the use of cash globally will just get tighter and tighter and the role that cash plays in our lives will just become smaller and smaller.

In the end, a transition to an almost entirely cashless society will seem almost natural. Cash is being killed off one slow step at a time, and at this point hardly anyone is objecting.

Canada-United States Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) Joint Forward Plan.


29 August 2014
Introduction

Today, the Canada-United States Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) Joint Forward Plan was released. The plan sets the stage for fundamental changes in the way regulatory departments and agencies in both countries work together, making it easier for businesses to operate in both countries.

The Joint Forward Plan, which builds on the RCC Joint Action Plan launched in December 2011 by Prime Minister Harper and President Obama, will deepen Canada-U.S. regulatory cooperation through new bi-national processes and partnerships. This approach will institutionalize joint planning and collaboration between Canadian and U.S. regulatory agencies.

The Joint Forward Plan also includes specific commitments to align 24 areas of regulatory business. Work will continue in areas such as marine safety and security, pharmaceuticals, food safety, plant and animal health, and crop protection products. The RCC Forward Plan also expands work into new areas such as energy efficiency, toy safety, medical devices, chemicals management, and the use of natural gas in transportation.

Nah. Cashless serves corporate culture - easier to indenture the servants.

That's cash:
"No sooner is the exploitation of the labourer by the manufacturer, so far, at an end, that he receives his wages in cash, than he is set upon by the other portions of the bourgeoisie, the landlord, the shopkeeper, the pawnbroker, etc."

A marxist cashless society is one where "paid work" doesn't exist.

It's the abolition of "wage slavery" - who are only really one tiny step up the ladder from indentured servants.
"bitcoin" is the closest we have come to this so far.


let me know if you find a copy of BLACK, FISCHER. (1970) "Banking and Interest Rates in a World without Money,"

Really not sure what you're getting at. All the evidence shows we're being pushed further and further into corporate rule (for corporate profit) - but you seem to be saying no, we're being led to marxist-communism. ....???

That it isn't quite that simple.
www.computerworld.com...

"marxist-communism" is, imho, the only way society survives that.
while, otoh
we are still going to need the other 2/3 of jobs done by the proletarian class, which means there needs to be a significant group of people left who think they are living "cashless", while they are actually just living as a totally automated proletarian class dominated by those who do live cashless.

All mixed in by a ton of FUD around the whole issue.
Spreading the love for cash is spreading the love of being proletarian.

I take it you're not up on robotics. FYI - the "totally automated proletarian class" will not just be living as such - it will be such in actuality. The thousand-year dream is coming true as we speak - the Corporate ONO economy will not be relying on worker-slaves. Just robots.

Ed. to add - Just reread - guess that's what you already said. Sorry.

Have you seen this?


The world's first robot hotel is being planned for a theme park in Japan

...the Henn-na Hotel, will be partially staffed by what are termed “actroid" androids – remarkably human-like robots who will be able to greet, carry luggage to rooms, make cups of coffee – and even smile.

Three of the uniformed actroids will serve as reception staff at the Henn-na Hotel, scheduled to open in July. Alongside them will be four service and porter robots, an industrial robot serving as a cloak room attendant and several robots whose primary task will be to clean.

...All this super advanced technology will of course come at a price – a lower price. The minimum room rate at the Henn-na Hotel will be ¥7,000 (about £40), and although guests will find the price increase as people bid for the rooms online, the rate for a night’s stay is likely to be capped well below the rates at the three other hotels at the theme park (which start around ¥20,000 to ¥30,000).

The cheaper rates will be possible because the use of robots and power-saving equipment such as LED lights and renewable energy are all expected to reduce operating costs.

Following the opening of the 72-room Henn-na Hotel, there are plans to open a similar-sized robot-powered facility in 2016.

Can we talk about something other than me :p

Techs moving blinding quick these days, the best I can do is say that:
en.wikipedia.org...

Is the current "state of the art" in published proven tech.
Research is nearly always 10-20 years ahead of what is published and proven.

More interesting imho is what these developements do to the status quo, because its not entirely clear they get to hold onto the future means of production.

Hmmm. I suspect they do. However, the situation does not prevent or preclude 'the masses' from creating a completely independent economy to run parallel to the mainstream corporate one. ...I believe that's how Japan works, and has been for several generations now.

I see it as more abstract than that.
The new global monarchies of Zuckerbergs, Gates, Sorros, Googles and Amazons, and more recently Ailibaba are a long way removed from the historical power base that fuelled the global economy. and arguably each one many times the size.

How much does "land", "military" and "financial control" really matter any more when you can install a few servers in your parents basement that generates the GDP of a small country all tax free.

Thanks for explaining - not what I suspected you were getting at. I partly agree, But. The 'information economy' is certainly giving the old boyz a run for their money but I don't think the financial controllers are seriously threatened. And I'm waiting for some upstart or another to bring down Big Pharma and the chemical industry. That might make a real difference. otoh - I do think it's kinda cool that Amazon is testing a drone delivery service.

it goes much deeper than that.

we're not in an information age. yet.
still neck deep in the age of energy. where all the world's power sits with those who control the world's energy sources.

it has been that way since everything was powered by burning wood.
