    Rampant crony & predatory capitalism, corruption at every level of government. Near total apathy from the voters... where will it all end...

    Aaaaaah, I don't want to live in this planet any more...

    It will probably never end. Scarcity creates a large profit margin for cannibalistic corporations. The only thing that will change this is a shift in humanity's view on materialism; the chances of that are virtually nil.

    Just enjoy what you have...

    Here's an interesting idea. With the advent of open source multimedia, pear to pear in tandem with 3D printing, I wonder what will happen when these sorts of technologies converge so we can just essentially replicate things we need.

    It is entirely possible that when this occurs, the entire economy will change beyond all recognition.

    Just an idea. Since most human labour is being outsourced to foreign countries, or being out sourced to machine labour, I wonder what will rise to replace the standard work paradigm?

    There must come a time when virtually all none creative, none scientific things are almost completely operated by machine labour.

    Joe, that's the day when the rich no longer need the poor.
    Be afraid. Be very afraid!

    It is also the day the poor realize the rich serve no useful purpose, and we are a lot more in number than they!

    ;p

    Nope, the rich have never served a purpose.
    If people haven't figured them out as parasites already, they never will.

    if the poor rise up to challenge the paradigm of sytematic meandering that the rich have put on display eventualy it will lead to bloodshed like no other,the rich have the power to do whatever they want whether average people would acknowledge it or not.They can manipulate the military industrial complex with money,they can hire mercenaries and eliminate those who would get in the way of their agenda,its totaly f%$#ed.

    Eventually it will get that bad, but we can challenge it before it is too late by simply enough of us withdrawing consent and not playing it their way. At least criticising the farce that they call "democracy" and telling them we know it is false, for a start. Doesn't sound much but they do rely on thinking they have our "hearts and minds" and that we don't see them for what they are, a HOSTILE ELITE.

    What kind of ugly are they talking about?
    It's just straight up cold evil.
    What kind of nonsense are they going on about?
    Do they suffer from the fever?
    Nothing's gonna satisfy them
    Till it all goes Chernobyl
    No, nothing's ever really gonna satisfy them
    Until the virus goes mobile.

    Watch it happen, a natural fact.

    Watch it happen.

    i thought "the banking crisis" was over when the banks had their "bail-out"

    The "the banking crisis" is just the symptom.
    Capitalism is the cancer.
    So we are now waiting for the next meltdown. Maybe it'll be the big one. The bail-out is an ongoing crime enabling the banksters to kill USA. If they want more money all they have to do is order Obama and they shall receive.
    That's what's going on.
    With a USA where 50% supporting the insane system (even if they say different) and the other 50% cluelessly playing along like only true morons could, things are looking dark.
    It's a on going war between those who don't follow and those content with a corrupt society.
    USA is bleeding to death and the privatly owned media is calling Occupy Wall Street a joke.
    That's what's really going on.
