Anyone who knows the basics of macro economics and history in its true context know that in fact things are in fact that Bad....
But is that negative..?
That the current world economic model isn’t working?
Its seems pretty obvious to me that it is truly amazing when things are GOOD, well at least a bit stable anyhow for cyclic 7-12 year periods!
The thing that is different now to any time in the past is how the capital wealth has migrated from countries/families owning most of the wealth to
The large ones now rank amongst many western countries in terms of real capital wealth....
That’s people with historically short time periods of 2-5 yrs running, controlling, shaping and affecting our lives and the corporations whilst we
pay them to do it, often work within those very organisations in bad environmental/social situations and they just want to take more of our time/money
for the privilege!
The fact however that they do have this huge amount of the worlds wealth though means that as more time progresses until the next REAL Crunch or stock
market crash the risks get higher...
The affects of a loss seen now by the financial service, and Banking sector firms,
Being played out by the world’s largest 5 corporations would make San Francisco in the great depression seem normal!
Well a World War just before, or after this situation,
when the common man is faced with the absurdity of the masks, now so apparent in the people, companies that control his life,
that he sweats and gives his most valuable thing to his, time here, whilst alive, when they cant help feed his children. Aren’t giving him bits of
paper to so he can buy fuel, keep warm pay the vets and doctors bills... is usually the "solution" ....
So on that as mentioned by an earlier poster negative point, I will leave the "crisis" things being that Bad and postulate now that as said it might
not be bad after all if the worse nightmares regarding this do infact play out, how so?
Painful and of no quick solution but maybe just maybe with these historical facts now mainstream, the way its harder for governments/families to
create such global restructuring plans so easily... look at the opposition to the last Iraq war in the UN recently never mind the view of the person
in the street...
The propaganda may be more encompassing now and pervasive but also too is the access to knowledge, information and sharing of this instantly and
worldwide (nearly so!)... It would be much harder to do now... maybe though Iran (prays not)...
Therefore a real crash now may lead too such untested and unparalleled circumstances that a new model or rather, the management of the model with new
parameters, vis a vis environmental, social, fair-trade etc would be born.
Maybe just maybe not from the governments/families this time, maybe the ruined companies & corporations would in this new environment be forced to
adapt to the new emerging desires from its consumers, which would probably have new values along the line of social, environmental, economic, views
after such a depression.
They would invariably not allow such a situation to reoccur if no great sideshow e.g. war, 9/11 etc was distracting the collective conscious! The
pyramid structure, top down would be impossible because everyone would be on the base and building a pyramid together!
The hiding, manipulation, control hat has permeated the "western/developed" (and I mean here past civilisations in the "third world" now) control
of human development or Path would be very open and plain too see, just look at the freedom of my thoughts here and now... NEVER BEFORE could a
majority see it, your thoughts and too, or a new way, teaching from a great human (and I pray for one of those too because we need one now, like no
other time in history when they have manifested
), see and hear, see save this information.
"The power of the the pen is Mightier than the Sword" and all that lol,,,
So I remain a optimistic realist on this, in how it affects me, my loved ones, you included and yours too!
Having said this however it is important I think for all of us to remember something... the context in which most of the internet, the news, the
corporations as well is framed in the "western" experience. (I use that term broadly as it will no doubt in 50 years be changed to the "east" :-)
If say you are say a average American, in the context of this post by the time you read this sentence to the full stop after this these three, wait
for it... 12 children will have died from starvation. 12 children.
However in this threads context and what most of us talk about, experience live in, worry about is such a minority.... those 12 children probably 13
by now! if you stopped and thought about that?
Are from the TWO THIRDS of the worlds population (and that is a ****ing majority if ive ever seen one!) we forget about.
For those you, me , US worrying about real estate or pension plans seems ridiculous... they are worrying about there next meal, maybe the first in a
week, or a month.
London , San Francisco in a terrible depression I mention earlier would have no impact on them anyhow, except they would probably not get so much
pollution from western factories , mines etc, for the truly poor of this world our hell has been that majorities norm for sooo long.
well well well what a level playing field that would be, and maybe something soo desperately needed can come of it, not a pyramid but wonderful mmm
lets say egg, ball circular structure could be admired by people in generations to come.
About 16 children have died now whilst you read this, their mother's are now holding their dead children, crying, mourning, because they had no food
for for them.
One mother thinks in her anguish its not like the nice man from Monsanto said, he said the seeds were the best in the world, but we didnt understand
that next ears bag of seeds after using sterile ones for a year would be soo expensive. But the first bag was free!
I don't know another mother cries, I tried soo hard to give him milk, but the weather has changed since my grandmothers time, it does not rain like
it used to here! I couldn't make milk from dirt, even the goats have gone! The nice man with a bright smile from Nestle said he would help, he gave
me some free powdered milk formula, Natasha was getting better for a couple of weeks, but no more was free, and now because I topped trying to suckle
Natasha my breasts have dried up. I couldn't find clean water, I walked for 15 miles today in the blistering sun looking for water. I found some
muddy water in a old riverbed I stayed thirsty myself and made some milk for Natasha she is so little and ill, soo thirtsy and hungry and scared
that was early this morning before it got too hot, im soo tired, She got sick then tonight and now she is gone and dead, MY god why?
yep THINGS ARE REALLY THAT BAD
care to change them NOW for one of those 20? Is there anything more innocent and miraculous than children?
If you have a heart you will go here! Save The Children
How dare we? A mill stone and lots of water comes too mind!
