Twilight?

Economic collapse is only a crisis for elitism…

By comparison, your life was shit before the collapse.  Now, your life is shit after the collapse.   But you can learn to be happy this way!   How can they?  --with no “poverty” to exploit or “growth” to steal…

Don’t EAT the rich, STARVE them instead…

http://www.adbusters.org/blogs/adbusters-blog/chris-hedges.html

Remember when you didn't need a Harvard MBA to have a savings account that yielded 5% interest?

Remember when governments were trustworthy? When politicization didn't redound to meaningless political chicanery and endless debt just to finance our nations' bills?

Remember when just about every American could get a job?

Remember when One Percent was small enough to be ignored as (statistical) noise?

Well, then…

Stop Praying!
Stop Borrowing!
Stop Consuming!
Stop Believing!
Stop Whining!

And start Surviving and Self-empowering instead!

Ode to Punky

I'll never forget the first time I saw a dead and mutilated animal and realized the same boys in the neighborhood I walked to school with had done it.
It was my tabby cat, Punky.

Do the best you can out there today, people...

Krugman is Right

Paul Krugman is right!  I am convinced of that now.   The “market” has simply overvalued people like the Koch Bros and Carlos Slim while dramatically undervaluing YOU and ME—the real economy!  One Percent (media) manipulation of fear and hopelessness, not capital or debt, is a/the root cause of this Depression.

Simply put, Society has severely erred for decades, awarding far too much capital to far too few people of the WRONG (antisocial) type.  But that seems so incredibly easy to fix, democratically…

Barack Obama and Ben Bernanke might start by threatening the .01 percent with trillions of unsterilized dollars funding public spending and enterprise--to lever current market panic to generate vast, essential social liquidity to offset private sector unemployment.  I expect substantially greater private investment in employment would follow any credible (99.99%) threat to revalue oligarchy.

Darwinism is Wrong

The moral issue behind the New Normal Depression is that, in the battle between Greed and Good, greed "naturally" wins.

But being human means every outcome in not required to be "natural."  So how or why is Darwinism the answer here?!
