Wrong.

The whole set-up for this is to enable D.C. to garner MORE control for Wall Street. Especially with their ties to the E.U..

It stinks to high heaven.




the government and people like those who "protested" and those who hate banks and corporations without them

WITHOUT THEM WHERE WOULD YOU BE?

What is or is not real has been a topic of contention since time immemorial. Since the chair I sit on is comprised of swirling atoms rather than hard matter, is it fair for me to say the chair is not real? Or may I grant reality to the chair in the context of the physical world I reside in?

Your problem is that you see no difference between capitalism and corporatism.

Take the blinders off. Big world out there.

Is it so hard to believe that in this wonderful wide world of diversity we live, breathe and exist in, there are people who hold different views than your own?



It is things like this that make me feel absolutely convinced that a good lot of you are so far in the tank with the corporatism, that you are unaware you are even inside the tank in the first place.


Is it really necessary to lash out at those who hold a different paradigm of reality than your own?



I know you are here defending the banks (in a very obtuse way) because you reckon they are the polar opposite private force to the "public" force of government is "good"...


Banks are institutions that loan money to people against interest.

Corporations are legal entities that describe a group of people cooperating for the exchange of goods.



Are you gonna give me a slice of pie and spray some Bactine on my knee while you're at it?

I assume that most people would recognize that there is systemic corruption, based upon the goings
a chain reaction which was initiated by banks and government.

Hey if wanna love the banks too, have at it...

Enjoy the fruits of your labor

Yes I do, that is exactly what I am saying.

You however, are too egotistical to even admit there is a problem, Big World out there, so sweep it under the
rug, Hit me More master please!

You should start the Corporatist party! Yeah!

See the corporatists operate exactly like your thinking here in this thread.

They create every excuse to justify the doing the same thing until they
time out the clock, so people forget... Nothing changes

You are a primary and vital agent for this process, like gold, you should be proud.

In the end capitalist, corporatist, cronyism, they are all sanctioned by you, cause you
defend them all equally.

See you Later then

" I would never join any organization that would have me as a member..." (groucho marx)

"Janky;Janky;Janky..."
Planned and approved ("spontaneous") demonstrations.


If they were really gonna do anything effective to embarrass wall st types; do you think tptb (authorities) would give permits and approvals?
At least when the Dnc convention was protested in Minnesota (IIrc?) the cops searched and busted a few homes boarding demonstrators( remember finding buckets of urine?) . and charged them.

How (real) can any protest be when it is organized;controlled; and the date advertised.?
(perhaps sponsored by pepsi or Nike?)

It would be incredibly naive to think the Govt didn't have a direct line into the inside of such an organization.( Intel going out and influence or instructions going in).

What banks, corporations and governments have in common is that they are all attempts by human beings to get together and form groups for solving different types of issues of society in particular and civilization in general.

The words "corporation", "banks" and "government" are merely labels given to different social organisms that congregate.

It is wonderful for people to get together trying to solve the issues of life.

Human History is various groups competing with each other. By virtue of these conflicts, new situational environments arise and humankind expands to new understandings and new levels than they were before.

I hope this helps in gaining more insight into the nature of that which you are addressing in this most exciting and fruitful exchange of ours.

I think the even larger problem is peoples' willingness to ignore the fact that corporatism is the natural end-game of capitalism.

Look at any game of Monopoly. It starts out fun and everybody is on the same page. Pretty soon, some players get some lucky rolls and buys some prime properties. Once it gets so bad that people can't pay the rent from landing on said properties, the owners don't want the game to end so they make "arrangements" with the other players so the game can keep going. All of the players end up owing that one person for about five hours when they should have all quit the game and started over about three hours before.

Banks and corporations will always curry favor from the government and will always bend laws and money to their collective wills. Unless the government was ran by machines and direct voting democracy, this will never change.

Wasn't Verizon or somebody going to supply cellphone charging stations? (mentioned somewhere in the first few posts above)?

My sincere apologies.

It was not my intention to derail this most exquisite conversation of ours.

The post was encoded in analogy and may have therefore overreached the bounds of your intellectual capacity. If you exchange the words "swirling atoms" with MONEY, as a metaphysical tool of energy exchange, you may draw closer to grasping the analogy.

He's a venture-socialist.
But close enough.

So not only are you a corporatist shill, but you're also bloody dishonest. Good to know.
