Bringing Back Balance

Balance is not achieved by “bailouts” or  protection of “too big to fail” businesses and banks. you gain balance through competition. Balances isn’t gained by treating those who’ve been associated with ethical impropriety, like deities.  Giving them huge bonuses, as if tithing to god.

You create balance when there is competition. This would exclude the act of making “too big to fail”, even larger.

Competition relies on choice. Choice between the medium and the small institutions competing for your business and deposits, with ethical services and care for their customers, “the savers”. A punished class today and tomorrow, if such trends continue.

This is a supply and demand, capitalist structure. A structure that has been totally lost since the end of 2007.

So many things have been and will be lost with this quiet and complete change. The confusion was a created  crisis. The prefect cover and misdirection to keep the public blinded by distraction.

With our change and the worlds change, to saving banks because of their own poor derivative sales purchases and frauds, opposed to protecting their citizens voters and people tells me, the battle ground is now the public’s fight against an elite, power imposed Neo-feudalism .

The Difference Between Rich and Poor

If you are rich and don’t like how you’re treated, you immigrate .

If you are poor and don’t like how you’re treated, you self-immolate.

I believe this describes nicely, where we stand on the realities of wealth disparity, and a class war most ignore. Which, in our ongoing patriarchal ignorance, has re-pressurize Sexism and Race issues, with the subconscious fears of white men. Irrational fears In my think, but common to politicians and bankers.

They always believe they are moments away from losing the only thing they hold dear. ” Their Power”.
I look at current conditions and trends, and those who control multinational companies, financial institutions, and western government as the wealth siphon from the bottom up continues.

I expect both practices of rich and poor to grow, using Greece as the template for my theory.

Awareness Comes Too Late

I’m speaking of finance and government, when I say you can’t have it both ways. It’s absolutely ridiculous, and simply a dream. It’s false hope, and works directly against the individual. A dream that perpetuates, and even worsens, the problems individuals will suffer in the long run.

Finance, in the case the Federal Reserve, continues the process of dollar devaluation. Its printing at this time appears to be an addiction. It’s purchase of housing derivatives,dangerous to say the least. As another housing bubble grows on the public’s books, through the dominance of government lending in the sector.

The close to zero percent borrowing rates, only serve to allow a direct drain from the public coffers. Those rates also allow for continued increases in risk and speculation, in newly created financial vehicles, that will most likely grow their own speculative bubbles.

We can see the track government is treading, as the Federal Reserve increases it’s purchasing of debt based, mortgage-backed securities to $80+ billion per month. The track being followed, obviously, as the fed increases QE, is straight over the fiscal cliff. I don’t believe there is any cause at this point to hold out hope.

These efforts though seem some how designed, in the long run to cause rebellion, when the reality and facts of this folly and abuse of power come to light. Unfortunately I see an impoverished population under Marshall Law, as the realities of living under a stylized fascist system of controls, fully reaches the oppressed impoverished masses. The acknowledgment finally, of the unconstitutional abuses of power, will come too late. The recognition of the theft of savings and retirement, won’t bring the wealth confiscated back. It also won’t stop the further drain of savings or the illegal appropriation of savings by financial entities, for their own purposes.

How do I know this will be the case, some may ask. Well let me say, following the current trends of government and finance point to this conclusion. Not to mention the policy trends from our partner nations, such as the UK, pointing in the same direction.

As the little guy, a place held by the majority of the population, I know suffering in great measure is on the way. Some would have you think the difficulties have passed and things are getting better. I think they are promoting a false sense of security.

We need to acknowledge this depression, as no government or financial institutions will. We are flat broke. We have bailed out banks, and they make their money by increasing debt. If these few things of the many other pointing the same direction are true, we are in trouble unimaginable. Especially if one also considers, the present climate of international affairs.

I am concerned, as I write this, with all people everywhere. I pray for all humanity. I want only the best for all people. I may focus on my own, but I never lose sight of others. If there are those out there who can say the same, maybe all is not yet lost.

From Complex to Simple

 

I find it an oddity in human beings, that procrastination is always the choices, when it comes to taking and making important decisions.. As individuals most of us do fine by the percentages in the management of life. As complexities build, by adding individuals to these groups. The management of the group system becomes more complex, the larger the count of individuals within the group grows.

From there, each movement of that group, as a whole, becomes weighted with added complexity to the management system. There are many and varied examples, if one thinks for a moment. When the groups finally are confront from within, most are too large to easily change, for the needs of their members. Clubs committees religions business government, and many other group archetypes, are these systems of giant complexity.

These Mega-systems are long to change, quick to respond, structures. Some are so large, the decision making process is a fettered one. As apposing individuals within the group posture, the progress comes to a stop. Compromise is lost to the large group. With individual concerns, for progress to actually take place, the problem of the group has to come to the point, where if nothing is done, the group will fail. A point of so much pressure and pain, the T.I.N.A belief, (There Is No Alternative) truly applies. A breaking point of assured destruction.

If you doubt this, I recommend taking a look at the issues around the world, being managed by these Mega-groups. International and sovereign governments business banks and social control like media, are some of these huge systems, and their overall failure, not to mention the lies, fraud, broken laws, false wars and buddy bailouts, all fit this Mega-model.

Not one of these Mega System, can any longer benefit from one good idea. It simply gets lost in the buzz of these system. Destine if anything, to be watered down altered and made complex. After all that, it may never again see the light of day.

Complex system are fully our problem. Human nature is to simplify and advance. The nature of the Mega-system is to add complexity and obstruct.

If we want to advance change, have more freedom with less corporation manipulation and lies, simplification is the only way to change the pattern of decision making. Simplification is the way to transparency. Simplification is the way to combat manipulations and lies. Simplification also closes the chance for fraud. Our hope and direction as people on mass, should be to work for the simplification of these complex system,. It is the one thing I believe will lead us, into a better future for all mankind.

Shock-n-Aah…

Just saw this on a News Ticker, “Cameron Blows Off Merkel”.
First, I had no Idea. Second, I’m glad things are going well.

The Economic Butterfly Effect and Election Day

Re-post from June 13, 2012, Very interesting, looking back

The Economic Butterfly Effect and Election Day.

Brussels, Sprouts

I find it odd, with all the news stories on the EU furthering it’s controls over the participating sovereign nations, I can find no use of the catchy Headline, “Brussels, Sprouts”.

Austerity, Creating the EU Caste Sysytem

I find myself today, revisiting comments I’ve made in the past, regarding the EU and it’s direction, with a focus on the average citizen’s suffering, due to forced austerity. I’m not sure any nation in the EU, accepted or expected “The Brussels, Financial Inquisition”. To clarify my feelings on this situation, I will use Greece as my example.

The Greek people have seen the many methods and pressures, that have caused a forced loss of their national sovereignty. Austerity and budgeting changes, conforming with the policies and practices of the German Bundesbank. These changes, required by the EU, don’t conform to the needs of the people and their government, anywhere else but Germany. These dictated mandates, by the ruling factions in the EU’s fiscal framework, serve only to raise fear in the affected nations. Fears of a lost culture and fears of lost social connections, are in the public’s mind. Rightly so I feel, as national identities are suppressed, for a Euro-centric patriotism.

The Fiscal Union, a one size fits all plan, was poorly conceived. The nation states joining, poorly vetted, regarding budgets and debts. A fly by the seat of your pants operation, with a fix-it as we go policy. A policy that has had repercussions world wide.

Bearing the brunt of the these circumstances, we find the average citizen of Greece. These are folks, who amid all the controversy surrounding tax dodging in Greece, are those who had few resources, with neither a need or the means to shelter resources from taxation. But these normal folk, are left to suffer through no fault of their own.

These forced austerity controls, roll over sovereignty. Greece will not be the only one. Greece is being used as an example. This while bailouts go directly to service debt. That means those bailout funds go directly, with small exception, right back to the banks. Serving to actually raise debt, not lower it.

This genocide of self determination, will be more apparent when children take to the streets to beg, as they do in India. The example being made of Greece, as 150 new austerity demands come from the EU, for Greece’s Parliament to pass legislation on, only prove the manipulation and pressure by the EU machine.

This tragedy will create, an even larger underclass, and causes me to wonder if the Caste system is the end game in the EU. To create the rulers and the ruled. To progress the gap between the Have’s and Have Not’s. The paths chosen by the EU monetary union, seem to support this creation of an India style, culture of classes, for the creation of a caste system in the EU.

This touches merely the edge of this issue. Human nature says to me, those with power wish to retain power. Human nature also says to me, based on the “I must have mine, before you have yours” principle tells me, this will only progress in the future. The continued siphoning up of wealth, that makes the rich richer and the poor poorer, is clearly set to continue (worldwide). As the economic and fiscal power player, Germany has returned to Dictatorship, whether they like it or not. Greece fought off the German occupation in WWII, too bad history isn’t set to repeat itself.

Making a Stink

I’m a Cynic, and somewhat Jaded. I’ve been told many times, that I should write of happier subjects than business banking and those who suffer because of them, . Let me tell you, this can be a chore. So I’ve been trying to adjust, without changing. You see, I don’t mind being cynical and jaded. There’s times it’s kept me, all warm and snuggly. That’s tough to find. So, I had to ask myself, why give it up the subjects I love? Why, indeed. I actually write for me, I just try to think of anyone who’s kind enough to read something I write, as looking over my shoulder.

I’ve decided to try and introduce the strangeness of my imaginings to written form. I think it might be amusing. Anything amusing seems preferable now, no matter my love for charts graphs and figures. I have to say, considering latest trend to scam and defraud, most of the time charts graphs and figures can be down right depressing. I mean, here’s how far the situation has digressed. I’ve started to see the whole thing, as an old Warner Bros. cartoon. The odd thing is, the cartoon’s Pepe Le Pew.

Pepe Le Pew, before DNA testing, is foremost a weasel. In my imaginings Pepe represents the banks. Pepe’s victim, the cat, represents savers and those putting money into IRA’s 401K’s or small portfolio investors.

Pepe relentlessly pursues, even forcing himself on the cat, attempting to steal what the cat is desperately trying to save. Pepe finds the cat, no matter where it hides. Each time Pepe finds the cat and forces himself off on her, a little of what the cat is trying to save is taken. After the taking, the cat tries to find a better hiding place. But each time Pepe returns, to take a little more. Pepe can’t just have a bit of the cat. Pepe doesn’t stop till all the cat has is his. Pepe might even make promises to the cat, when she’s caught. The promises are hollow. The statements of togetherness can never be. Pepe and the cat aren’t the same species.

Many won’t see the meaning of this comical play. Pepe as a Big Banks, and the cat victim, as the average investor, might be a stretch for some. For me though, it’s easy. The circumstances present in news reports today on the industry, make this quite easy. The fact that skunks, everywhere they go, leave a smell, is just a bonus feature. The stink is well justified in my imaginings. With all the lies scams and fraud, leaving behind the stink of excrement, seems more than appropriate.
