I hate to say it or see it happening to my children but there is a great depression looming on the horizon. I am getting old enough to not really worry for myself any longer but I am worried about the youth and generations to come.
Banks are broke. It is a fact that they really don't want you to think about but it is true. Through the pervasive greed from so few we have all been led to the brink of total collapse. It reminds me of the levies in New Orleans that protected the 9th ward. That part of the city was below sea level and yet they still lived there. When the storm came in the force of it overtopped the barriers and undermined them in other places. Now, the entire world financial system is below sea level and there is a big storm on the horizon. There a a small few who can see it coming and are trying to stack the sand bags around the weak spots but it will not be enough in the end. The question becomes what to do when people become fully aware that their money is gone?
As a species, we need to begin building a better foundation for the society that will emerge from the coming storm.
I propose these ideas for moving humanity forward in the not too distant future.
1) Protect those things essential to life on the planet. 2) Discourage exorbitant wealth and excess. 3) Assure there is enough arable land to feed local populations. 4) Control and regulate banks; it is your money. 5) Slow population growth through education.
Please add solutions to the list. We have to start planning this out now so we can ease the inevitable problems this world will soon face.
If you disagree with any of what I suggested then make a valid argument as to why and a solution that might work.
