I was talking about the sub prime mortgage scandal, anyway, regan, bush, all cast in the same mould<quoted text>
It was the Reagan admin that let the robber barons loot Wall St and public companies. Clinton helped. American business was taken over by parasites. Showbiz and hucksterism, smoke and mirrors since then. Manufacturing overseas and BS artists plundering the profits from the cheaper production.
You have a new global economic system based on investors and mandatory purchase of things like insurance providing cash flow for the new class of world rulers to disburse. In the long run it may be best for the large population we have, but it does need some tweaking and checks on it.
The world has become a corporation. There is not the old wealth such as gold and production of goods. Wealth is now determined by how much of the flow of Monopoly money you can divert to yourself.
You have your dream. You are a statistic, a cog in a greater machine. Matter being farmed by other matter. You have no escape.
As for the rest of your davesworld diatribe, that’s life, live with it.
