Watch the movie Idiocracy to see how the world would turn out. Very amusing film.

I am surprised not many of you have been to the hospital. Have you ever dealt with Aetna? Some employees state they have a policy to deny a significant percentage of claims right off the bat, as most people just pay them instead of contesting them. When my 2nd child was born, they tried to pull a fast one by stating that I was claiming my 1st child being born a second time two years later. I just don't get it.

The movie is about what will happen if the current way of the word is left to endure. Not the higher level of sustainability. This is a prime example as to why we need to get off the corporate run train of commercialism.

We need a better way. A way that is more human and humane. The way to enlightenment is hard to obtain in this corporate run world. Chasing the cheese is the way of the animal, we should be beyond the dog eat dog phase by now.

Reach higher.

Please Please Please watch "the Money Masters" and "Freedom to Fascism".

You will answer your own question in a hurry and stop a lot of useless time bickering over historical fact.

Two Cow Politics

Socialism : You have two cows. You keep one and give one
to your neighbor.

Communism : You have two cows. The government takes them
Both and provides you with milk.

Fascism : You have two cows. The government takes them and
sells you the milk.

Bureaucracy : You have two cows. The government takes them
Both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, and
Then pours it down the drain.

Capitalism : You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

Corporate: You have two cows. You sell one, force the other to
produce the milk of four cows and then act surprised
When it drops dead.

Democracy : You have two cows. The government taxes you
To the point that you must sell them both in order to
support a man in a in a foreign country who has only one cow

The FED.,The IMF.,and the World Bank can take the claim of putting the skrews to All business (corporate or not) and all Governments in any country.

Created after World War II to help avoid Great Depression-like economic disasters, the World Bank and the IMF are the world's largest public lenders.

When the Bank and the Fund lend money to debtor countries, the money comes with strings attached.
These strings come in the form of policy prescriptions called "structural adjustment policies." These policies—or SAPs, as they are sometimes called—require debtor governments to open their economies to penetration by foreign corporations, allowing access to the country's workers and environment at bargain basement prices.

Structural adjustment policies mean across-the-board privatization of public utilities and publicly owned industries. They mean the slashing of government budgets, leading to cutbacks in spending on health care and education. They mean focusing resources on growing export crops for industrial countries rather than supporting family farms and growing food for local communities. And, as their imposition in country after country in Latin America, Africa, and Asia has shown, they lead to deeper inequality and environmental destruction.

That is an excellent way to summarize things. Can I use that sometime, with your permission of course?

I dont look at the Fed, IMF, or World Bank as corporations. They are somekind of quasi government/corporate abomination to humanity.
