This is an incredible article, one of the better ones I have read in a while.

Egypt demanded regime chnage. Even though Mubarak was all for making concessions, they didnt back down. What the hell is our problem here, in the US?

The same scum running DC and WallSt, and we allow it all to keep happening.

This is a great read....

I just read all of the article contained in your link. It is excellent, of course, because it again discusses the relationship of psychopaths to Big Business (of which I was already well aware), and there have been quite a number of articles on the internet that have been circulating lately about this evil relationship.

I think the prominence of psychopaths in top leadership positions within Wall Street and other banking and financial sector jobs just does more to point out the nature of those businesses rather than the fact that they attract psychopaths (or are sometimes actively recruited as the article pointed out). The very nature of banking and finance is psychotic, as it is based on greed and avarice, regardless of the carnage of innocent and trusting people who try to invest honestly within the system by turning their money over to these people.

This is the fundamental point that needs to be realized. The very foundation of banking and finance is on making as much money as possible. ALL people want to make as much money as possible. There never seems to be enough money, no matter how much you have. There is no concept of "enough" money. Because the very foundation of banking and finance is built upon greed, it attracts those to run those institutions who have no conscience, because greed and avarice are not conscience-oriented concepts (and neither is banking and finance). So unless you can build the financial system on something other than making as much money as possible, you will be stuck with the same criminal minds running the show as you have now.

That's why things never seem to change with anything to do with money. Money should be an expediant tool of use rather than an end-in-itself to be obtained regardless of means.

It's allowed, in my opinion, due to a very simple handicap, numbers. The movement for change in this country is still small and additionally has a poor public image suppressing growth.

Well there is no question on whether the wars and central banks are out of control, only an invalid would argue that.

The question is how many are willing to risk what they have to stop it?

[-] 1 points by spermcoffinACAB (5) 2 years ago

whoever is willing to risk it, however small or large their numbers, should risk it. this can mean continuing to protest, committing crimes, educating others, vandalizing things, it just has to continue. and the longer it does, the more people will look up and take notice. personally, i feel desperate and i'm willing to risk a lot, maybe my own life.
