The problems we face today are not black and white like the Vietnam war or civil rights. Protesting is not enough to solve the problems we face today:

Sky rocketing debt, unemployment, underemployment, deficits, Government failure, Economic systems failure, Financial systems failure, Market systems failure, Monetary systems failure, Social systems failure, Environmental systems failure, Ecosystems failure, corruption, greed, chronic recessions etc… etc… etc….

If you know the world around you is collapsing and you do nothing about it, then who’s really at fault when you stood by and did nothing? We have to stop whining and do something about it. We don’t have to live like this anymore.

Fight the cause is not that easy. That would be like collapsing a bridge while standing on the bridge.

Reduction in consumer debt is critical to protecting main street from wall street.

Of course, the person using debt neutrality could not be reborrowing the same amount of money, but who would want to? Please sign the debt neutrality petition if you agree with it.

Dept is just a symptom of our problems. This is why our problems keep getting worse. Band aids are not a real fix. I agree with what you're trying to do. But our problems are a lot more complex than this band-aid approach. That's why we say fight the cause and not the symptom. Stop looking for an easy painless way out. We've kicked the can down the road and the road has run out.

Debt Neutrality is not an easy way out, it could take 8 to 10 years to right the debt ship. The point is as people have less monthly obligations, they are in a better position to enlighten themselves and be more involved.

Blowing up a bridge while on it is not the answer.

The bridge is already blowing up in your face. The insanity arrives when you opt to stay on an exploding bridge. That's insane or suicide is more appropriate. That's what we're doing today. Capitalism is over. We tried to prop it up with socialism and now debt. it's over. I'm not willing to sacrifice my life or the lives of my offspring for a failed economic system that Marx called out more than 100 hundred years ago.
