Corporations. Yes corporations. The ones that are destroying our planet. The ones that are destroying our people. The ones who have the world governments in their pockets. The ones who are ABOVE the law. Oh and lets not forget the evil banking cartels. All the above are the biggest, most inhumane criminals in our current world.


Yet I can 'Theoretically' be arrested and charged for carrying a small amount of cannabis?

Sort it out.

This worlds gone to crap.

/Rant over.

Every body knows that a constitutional republic is the way to go.
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." - Ben Franklin (allegedly)
I think what we have now in the US and most of Europe is a mix of fascism & socialism with the illusion of democracy.

Instead of focusing on problems focus on solutions that you can be a part of. Corporate power is due to the fact that people have encouraged the idea that legislators are not regulating businesses enough. But its exactly business regulations that hand over power to exclusive monopolies. When people are clamoring for corporate regulations, and corporations write the laws through lobbyist campaigns, then obviously the result is going to be even larger corporations. Its exactly the business regulations everyone clamors for that favor large companies. Small companies and start-ups cannot afford the lawyers, ridiculously expensive "mandatory safety features", or fines and fees that large companies can afford. Competition in currency is especially important seeing how the dollar is going to be worthless or nearly worthless ten years from now.

So rather than more regulation in banking, we need the banking sector to be completely deregulated. Banking regulations are why Goldman Sachs exists. The solution is a free market kept in check by a low-cost framework for lawsuits.

Personally I've found that the Free State Project ( is creating an environment in New Hampshire which is focused on issues that solve the problems you are ranting about. They are in a major factor in deregulation in the state economy, and of course when the movement grows to a substantial size they'll be able to help with federal regulations as well.
