Excellent read and I ponder to think what such technology could do if we applied such technology to investigating corruption and crimes of importance where perhaps billions and trillions of tax payer dollars are being stolen or squandered on the elite and their secret bunkers.
Imagine such technology being used to ensure the public always received accurate data on global warming, science, astronomy, ancient history, the Pyramids, true investigation of matters like 911 and we could even keep our financial system, judicial system, in check with identifying anyone with knowledge of corruption and or political influence.
It is the logical outcome of the system we have now.
The system is breaking down because of its internal contradictions. It happened to communism in the 1980s and now its happening to capitalism as we know it (I guess you could call it "global hypecapitalism" or something similar). What we have now is not the last word on things, as we will all discover in the cming years.
Central banks have existed since the Swedish
Riksbank began operation in 1668. The
Federal Reserve, which was created in 1913,
is thus a relative newcomer in the history of central
banking: At the time of its creation, however, only 20
other central banks existed. The number of central
banks rose rapidly in the post-World War II period
primarily as a result of decolonization. [color=limegreen]This number
expanded again in the early 1990s as the collapse of
the Soviet Union led to the establishment of central
banks by the former Soviet republics. By 1997
were 172 central banks.
1 In 1998 the coterie of
central banks expanded by one, when the European
early history, when the primary function of a central
bank was to act as the government’s banker.
There is only so much money out there, and to get more you have to take it from someone else.
This huge disparity in wealth is what will end up crashing the system, it's way too top heavy as it is, and at the rate it growing it won't be klong before it collapses entirely.
The time has come to deploy this emerging stratagem against the greatest corrupter of our democracy: Wall Street, the financial Gomorrah of America.
On September 17, we want to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months. Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand in a plurality of voices.
Tahrir succeeded in large part because the people of Egypt made a straightforward ultimatum – that Mubarak must go – over and over again until they won. Following this model, what is our equally uncomplicated demand?
The most exciting candidate that we've heard so far is one that gets at the core of why the American political establishment is currently unworthy of being called a democracy: we demand that Barack Obama ordain a Presidential Commission tasked with ending the influence money has over our representatives in Washington. It's time for DEMOCRACY NOT CORPORATOCRACY, we're doomed without it.
How do we end big corporations as we know them?
Most of our income goes to interest rates, and it is hard to say whether or not we pay more money to insurance than we pay on taxes. Most of our taxes money goes to support our global military presence, which serves the needs of the giant ICs, interest on the federal debt, and then medical subsidies for illegal immigrants, because the fed refuse to enforce the laws, so that the corporations have an eager and desperate slave labor work force. Then the next biggest chunk goes to the oil companies, and the oil industry is the most government subsidized industry. Not only in the gas that we put into our cars, but to all the products that are shipped half way around the planet, all the fertilizers that go into our food, plastics, on and on and on. You might want to consider that the people who own the oil companies are all primarily the people who own the banks and the insurance companies.
