Realizing what is happening and stopping it are two different steps entirely... People could realize the scam they have fed into their whole lives and still go back to it the next day, nothing would change.
And seeing how deep this goes in each of our lives, More will need to happen the 'Google Trends'
I think you may have read too far into this one. Hell, i had to google bank run to find out what you were talking about. It's something I've heard of before, just didnt know the term for it. For all we know there could have been a bunch of kids doing essays on how stupid the concept of banks is.
The general public is completely ignorant of everything around them. Go to an american bar and ask someone about Iran. Ask them what countries it borders. Ask them about what countries border the USA. Ask them why we need the government to micromanage our lives.
The majority of people do not know that Iran borders Russia. The majority of people do not know that the USA borders Russia.
Tell someone about the NATO missile shield and Russia dispute. Most people see no problem whatsoever. Ask them about the cuban missile crisis. Most people who were alive then think it was a huge deal. But it's OK for us to have missiles pointed at russia (And lets just ignore the fact that they're supposedly pointed at a country that doesn't even have long range missiles).
Ask these same people who they're voting for for president. The results are interesting.
Most people are completely and totally ignorant about everything that doesnt directly involve them. Quite a few people, but i wouldnt say most, are far more interested in the latest BS celebrity gossip than whats really going on.
If our future depends on "most people" we are screwed. Infact, I suspect this has ALWAYS been the case. "Most people" did not revolt against the British either. It doesn't require "most people" to make great changes. They'll just sit on the sidelines and bitch about the informed people. The rowdier ones may use it as an excuse for rioting..
seabag, good find on that video
every strand of fiber in the rope is unwinding and breaking every second of every day and Capitalism is on the hanging end of the rope.

When you get into it, bank runs
through out modern history have made
very rich powerful men jump off skytowers..

This is a huge threat to the reserve banking cartels that depend on our money to perpetuate their scams. This is also a huge threat to the uber-rich who partake in the unregulated global casino known as the derivatives market.
That depends on who you're talking about----the rich, or the uber-rich. The rich will probably have their investments wiped out as well, but for the uber-rich, this is a planned event. This is one step closer to global currency domination/one-world-currency (which of course must be backed by global-governance to work, as we've seen with the Euro), and at the very least it presents an opportunity for them to buy entire countries for pennies on the dollar. This is not the end for them, it's merely the beginning.

I think you’re right…..and that’s what I’m afraid of.
But a run on the banks that collapses the dollar could be the catalyst for people like Dr. Paul to really get support for ending the FED and ending our rule by unregulated banksters who answer to no one. I just don’t see change of that magnitude happening without a big catalyst such as this.
Am I wrong?
