Open systems have a much better chance of success because they face less obstacles to encourage this entropy. Free and unregulated markets are open
systems and under such a system massive competition is possible, as opposed to the ridiculously regulated market of today. All the clamoring for more
regulation as a knee jerk reaction to corporatism misses the point. That more regulation only strengthens corporatism and ensures that individuals
cannot compete in that market. This is part of what is killing America.
Interesting, when did this thread become a solutions thread? Anyways, you start off right, but.....
Deregulation is what caused the energy nightmare, remember Enron? Probably not, 911 did a great job of making people forget about that.
A true free market should work. the problem lies in the design of the system. I can't afford a lobbyist, therefore my needs aren't a matter for
them to deal with. A free market can only work if the corruption is removed. Since power corrupts, that's impossible.
If we stop and actually hold these people accountable and actually punish them under the same penal system the rest of us live by, maybe it wouldn't
be as bad as it is.
Right now in the US corporations and private individuals are buying up your water. They have succeeded in draining lake Michigan to an extremely
How? By playing the game of course. T. Boone Pickens managed to play the water code like a harp, paying off whomever he needed to, to get his home
set as a "water district". Smartly, he bought land above a massive aquifer and because of the corrupt joke of a system, is able to drill down and
suck all that water up.
The same thing is happening near the great lakes, they are sucking up all the fresh water from the aquifers that actually feed the lakes, at a rate
faster than nature can restore.
That's why your bottled water, that unregulated water, is more expensive than gasoline.
the free market has decided water, something every human on earth needs to survive, is the next "market" and are placing themselves to control it,
and by extension, your very life. All thanks to a corrupt bought out system of government and regulations.
Without holding people accountable, it really doesn't matter how you change or manipulate the system, people will always find a way to game it, for
Your financial industry sold fraudulent mortgage backed securities as sound investments, completely crashed the markets, and what happened? you
handed trillions of your tax dollars to them, as they gave themselves record bonuses.
All of these protesters have their own reasons for being there, some I support, a lot I don't, but at least these people see a problem and are
actively trying to do something about it. Now that so many people are aware of some of the issues, like those you are proposing solutions for, maybe
people can sit down and actually find some solutions that might actually work.
I have my ideas, hold the corporate fraudsters accountable for their crimes, like any of us would be, and if not End the Fed entirely, reorganize it.
A private bank should not control the value of, and amount in circulation of, the worlds reserve currency.
Maybe this is why so many countries are stepping away from the green back? Which countries? Well, any the US has recently invaded for one, and any
country being portrayed as a potential enemy in the media.
Here's an even better example of how the entire system is corrupt from the ground up.
BP oil disaster. Who was running security for the BP cleanup sites?
The National Guard
The US Army
The US coast guard.
That's right, those groups paid with your tax dollars to protect you and your country were contracted out to a private corporation using equipment
you paid for.
You seem to have an amazing grasp of the issue, and actually have put into words some ideas that sound good, have you thought of taking that to the
