Excellent thread, and excellent points. I wish I had specific information to add about the meltdown, but I dont.
The main thing this all points at to me is how much trouble we are in regarding what Kosmicjack brought up. The link between the media, politics and
corporations and their profit motive are lethal to humanity. It is something that NEEDS to be addressed, and soon.
I just came into contact with the Zeitgeist movement via their film, and while I dont agree with every single thing they claim, (they claim there is
no human nature, I disagree, natural selection HAS imbued us with some common drives, feelings, morals, etc.) they actually discuss this very topic.
How do we move away from a profit driven society and all the problems and misery it causes human beings?
I may be the last person to have seen the film, lol, Im not always on top of popular movements, but if by chance you havent seen it, I recommend it.
We need to do something different. Soon. The corporatisation of the world is placing us in grave danger, and we need to come up with some other way
of doing things SOON.
