There needs to be an understanding of the situation, a plan and possibly a lot of resources to confront the challenges. It will have a large effect when they fall, possibly more so personally than for society as some claim. It is still complex and a dangerous job that could get messy if not handled gently as there are many interdependencies that could lead to intended or unintended consequences.

True. ... This is what I mean when I say 'mega-corporations who have our governments by the balls.' Our governments are pretty much damned-if-they-do and damned-if-they-don't - your classic lose-lose situation.

as far as the thread title, i would direct your attention to a jan 10th article, noted here: (a few snips)

globalresearch.ca...


Increasingly, the rest of the world views America as the single source of its financial and political woes. While the superpower massacres Muslims in the Middle East and Central Asia, people in the rest of the world have learned from WikiLeaks that the U.S. government manipulates, bribes, threatens, and deceives other governments in order to have those governments serve the U.S. government’s interest at the expense of the interests of their own peoples.

The American Empire is on the rocks, despite its vast arsenal of nuclear weapons and its control over the foreign and domestic policies of its subservient puppet states in Western and Eastern Europe, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, parts of Africa, the Middle East, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, the Baltic states, Georgia, Kosovo, Mexico, Central America, Columbia, and, no doubt, others.

A country that is the font of war and oppression, whose dominance rests on the weak reed of puppet states, and whose economy is collapsing will not long remain dominant.



Oh ho... it looks like 'GlobalResearch' will be in line for top leadership changes,
these are harsh & pointed words and analyses.... they have my support

Morton's Fork is a logical dilemma in which people are faced with two equally bad options.


Option 1. Do nothing and things fall apart as corporatism lays waste to humanity - both dead
Option 2. Riot and fight back and humanity lays waste to corporatism - both dead
Option 3. Work through the problems, a fine line but both may get through it.
