"Thank you for calling Charter One, where good banking is good citizenship"

This automated greeting queued when I called a customer line of Charter One Bank. For a little bit of info about this bank, it is parented by: Citizen's Financial Group > Royal Bank of Scotland Group > British Government; Her Majesty's Treasury (84% majority shareholder).

What does banking have to do with citizenship?
Is this a blunt reminder from the House of Windsor or the European Banking Elite of our place in the system? Or is this merely a clever and innocent spin off of their corporate name? What do you think?

I don't know what it is about, but I do know that it's extremely creepy. Good banking is not good citizenship...good banking is good sense lol

Maybe they're using reverse psychology on their customers in order to make it seem as though bankers are just like Joe Smith? It's as if the bank wants you to know that they are handling your money as though they're just like mom and pop or something to that effect.

"Our bankers are good citizens and not greedy con men."

At least this is how it seems to me.
Just my two cents.

Yes...this is a good subject.
I authored a thread last year about the same subject here in the states.
Good Banking is Good Citizenship. Hmm...

Check it out.


In order to be a good citizen, you must listen to the banks.
Exactly the kind of propoganda that we find today.
And people don't see it.

They're too distracted.

Interesting. Good citizens are good consumers, huh

Welcome to the Brave New World. ...or is that the other book?

F&S to you and Havok too.

Good view-point. It would be very innocent in that sense.

I've been caught red-handed neglecting the 'Search' feature

Guess this is an update to your thread, that the company has went on to put the message on their customer lines.

Yep, that's about the same message I got out of it, just wanted to see what others thought.

It gets a bit more obvious (or innocently coincidental) that us 'common-people' are nothing more than cattle to the controllers.
