And yet these same people are not interested to learn who is the boss of all western banks.
They don't know about FED, ECB, Bank of England.
Who is the boss
Who's has ownership
Who makes the decisions
What are the outcomes.
What can be done about it.
They only know that they are getting poor and that's about it

As much as libertarianism and the right appeals to me unlike some hard core libertarian on here I have to admit there are some big problems in the world that makes its unfeasible and the huge gaps in wealth and equality need to be addressed before any big societal change.
The current system we have is failing. We need a new one. Problem is if we lurch to far right or left things will I think get worse.
As I said in another post the 1% (which I am just apart of) is outnumbered it says so in the name 1%. Outnumbered 100 to 1.
The current system is kept only in check by the police and army's. The people of which are drawn from the 99%. If things get worse and they abandon the 1% then any revolution will be bloody and as with most revolutions the results are normally worse as before.

Free trade is still the ideal system, if we had anything resembling it we would be in good shape. The game has been rigged and all the money stolen by the 1% ( yes, STOLEN!) needs to be returned to the people and the economy. Want to create jobs and kickstart the economy? Liberate some of that wealth that is doing nothing but accruing interest and return it to those who earned it in the first place.
I like the idea of working locally and trying to shield your small neck of the woods from the stupidity of the fools. support the manufacturers that are still operating in your area, your area craftspeople, and food producers. buy their brand from yuor locally owned merchants before you buy from the communities outside your area and big box stores when possible.
