From the summary: "If people willingly sacrifice for each other, even die for each other, and forget their differences in emergencies, there is no reason we cannot work together when there is no emergency. Governments use the artificial emergency as a tool to keep the citizenry focused on anything but what is really happening.

The internet changed everything.

The ones who really suffered in the economic collapse of 2014 were the very rich, the corporations, and the fallen governments; the middle class had already been decimated, but in its place arose a much more educated and savvy "poor" class than previously in history -- plus they had the internet and knew how to use it." from A Bright Tomorrow

"The ones who really suffered in the economic collapse of 2014"

2014 economic collapse of 2014? Do you know something we don't?

It is suspected to happen by some; it happens in my screenplay, which I am quoting, but which isn't finished yet. I had read about how awful hyperinflation is for the middle class (scaring us to let them do what they want), but we don't really have a middle class any more, so no reason to fret. I figure money will have to be worthless before people will start really thinking about what actually has intrinsic value.

Thank you. This fits in very well with the ideas behind A Bright Tomorrow. Feel free to check out the blog -- there is an overview of what I hope to do and a summary of the script so far. The script itself is not posted yet. I am more than willing to hear other ideas that might be a good fit.

"Capitalism in Crisis : Our Opportunity for a New System'', by Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese :

I haven't time to look at your link in any depth right now but will do so later and I append the article above as it prima facie, fits in with the theme of what you are commenting about here. Dr. Margaret Flowers, MD and Kevin Zeese, JD are two people who I respect very much and they are the guiding lights behind :

I am also going to append here this exceedingly inspirational, informative and down-right moving lecture from Dennis Kucinich :

I defy anyone who gives a hoot for The 99% to maintain a dry eye through this and DK's 'Q&A' is particularly moving. Good luck with all your endeavours & solidarity for ''A Bright Tomorrow'' for all.

Got it. I don't know if a collapse will happen or not. Doesn't seem to be on the radar. but you never can tell. Personally I'm not worried about it.

As for the middle class. There most certainly is a middle class, a very large one.actually. Maybe mostly a lower middle class, but still a middle class.

Not everyone works for McDonald's. Who do you think buy's a thousands of new cars at $25+K each, who do you think are buying the new $300K homes, who is buying bog screen TV's and $500 phones.

Yes there is a middle class. All you have to do is go to the local upscale mall or nice restaurant to see them spending their money.
