Financial

It is my humble opinion that Israel's bombing and invasion campaign is an effort to spend spend spend! Into the new year with lots of shiny bombs and bullets, hoping to raise the fortunes of people caught up in the financial crisis.

I could be dead wrong

World Government

I have one thing to say about World Government -

At the current level of global intelligence, where people have been intentionally dumbed down, after globally being denied access to high quality education, and being fed a staple diet of ridiculous and false impressions about who they are, why they were born, and what their purpose in life is, I must say that there will be no acceptance for a world government.

On the other hand, if the power of a world economic collapse is so strong that world politicians can all be convinced to follow a path of least resistance and lead their people to be governed by a global authority, then there can really be "World Government", usually, this situation is called an empire, and commanded by the most powerful, ruthless, and bloodthirsty person on earth.

Are we at the onset of another "Clash of Barbarians"- wars among peaceful peoples, led by hateful and selfish groups who are able to demonise that which is unknown?

Do we have the courage to collectively acknowledge that each "regional authority" or Government has been globalised into oblivion when it comes to defending people from corporate interests? In other words, eroded for the purpose of selfish corporate and militant rape of land and people rather than the good health and happy life of human beings who live in those regions?

The power of money disappearing might yet be a force of unity, but only when we understand that there is no such thing as money. When lawyers become broke, and out of business, and when companies cannot sue governments, and when people who run governments are not the same as people who run corporations, then maybe that might convince people that they should join forces and run the world together. However, probably more likely, that is a crazy scenario and top level people would rather undergo wars and destabilising struggles to maintain their fragile hold over the world and continue their bizarre ego trip.

The way forward towards a well lived world is when people are able to quantify their lives outside the realm of money.

EUOUUUUCKKKHHHH I hate myself for having typed this out. But it's really true: We may, one day, find ourselves relying on human kindness and sense of duty rather than
money to pave our way forwards in time.

Back to the topic, there is no way, at the current level of average global intelligence, emotion, and indoctrination, from leaders to followers, that we are in any way ready to accept a global, responsible, system of authority.

Whatever the system, there are always ways to bend the rules and go around the regulations and the constitution. The times change, people change, we forget that life is not theoretical all the time and that people are always able to break their programming, at one time or another.

Enabling systems in half the world where people are encouraged to bend rules, but believe that they are following theories. Then maintaining faulty systems in the other half of the world, where even the people who make the rules bend the rules, has led to an irreconcilable situation.

Our current world may be a mere rebound of global powers towards showing the world who's boss through a monetary beating. Rather than a global military dictatorship, which may come soon, anyway.

For a world government to operate fairly, there must not be any money involved. Motivation should come instead, in the form of pleasure.

(These are my musings)

I HATE REALITY!!

In reality, there is magic, this magic is called money. With money, some people can be made to do anything. Some people kill for money, rob for money, and steal for money, thinking that money will give them the magical power of money. However, after a while, they eventually realise that magic need a wand. This wand is authority and power. If there is no trained wizard able to wield this wand of power then effectively, there is no more magic. There is money but no magic.

Clever Bankers

I just read something wonderful in this analysis about why the global economy is in its current state.

Voila!

"To put it in crude terms, for much of the past decade, millions of Chinese slaved away on near subsistence wages and still managed to save, both as a nation (China swanks £1,400bn in foreign exchange reserves) and as individuals. And to a large extent they were working to improve our living standards, because they made more and more of the stuff we wanted at cheaper and cheaper prices - and clever bankers took their savings and lent the cash to us, so that we could buy the houses we cherished, the cars we desired, the flat-screen TVs.
This imbalance - between the savings of China, India, Japan and Saudi and our indebtedness, between their massive trade surpluses and our deficits - was never sustainable. At some point, the Chinese were bound to say, “we’d like some of the cake now please, which means you’ll have to have a bit less”.
Tragically, they toiled for our prosperity – or we lived high on the hog while they fattened the pigs for us – for too long. Which is partly why the return to equilibrium, to a more balanced global economy, is happening in a horribly painful way that's impoverishing millions of people.
For me, therefore, the most important event of the past week was the chastising of the US Treasury Secretary, Hank Paulson, by Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the Chinese central bank. Zhou said that "over-consumption and a high reliance on credit is the cause of the US financial crisis" and "as the largest and most important economy in the world, the US should take the initiative to adjust its policies, raise its savings ratio appropriately and reduce its trade and fiscal deficits."
This seemed a pretty unambiguous statement by the Chinese that they're no longer prepared to finance the spendthrift ways of the US and UK: they don't want to lend more and they want to be confident that what they have lent won't disappear in a puff of bad debts and inflation.
So the big question is how much debt will"

Are we a bunch of passive citizens?

I can't believe that the government has been hijacked. Can you dig it?

Passive citizenship
People who are unhappy with the excessive power of government, centralized at both national and local levels, sometimes ask in exasperation “who is promoting this illiberal, anti-democratic system?”

The answer is, of course, we the people. Or, perhaps more precisely, we the voters.

Anyone who has ever stated that the government or the council should do such and such is promoting the system.

Anyone who has ever said that individual people cannot be expected to take the right decision on, say, health or education is promoting the system.

Anyone who has decided that he or she cannot be bothered to take an interest in what is going on with the defence of this country or to try to understand what powers have gone from the British parliament or the British courts to the European Commission , the Council of Ministers or the ECJ is promoting the system.

Democracy, as my colleague Richard North is wont to say, is not a spectator sport. If you do not become interested in politics, politics will become interested in you.

The most effective way for politics and politicians to become interested in you is by creating ersatz political structures that appear to be “of the people, by the people and for the people” but are, in reality, controlled by the state and its minions. This is called creating a civil society and the first successful practitioners, unsurprisingly, were Lenin’s Bolsheviks when they came to power.

Needless to say, Hizonner the Mayor, who is convinced that democracy in London is best served by him acquiring more and more power without any checks or balances, is a great believer in this process.

A seminar is being run today in the Great Glass Egg, home of the Greater London Authority and of the ever more powerful Mayor, on “Active citizenship”. There is only one problem with that idea. People who come to a seminar to be told what to do in order to be active citizens are not actually practising that. They are passive and obedient recipients of instructions and ideas about politics and democracy.

In fact, what they are becoming involved in is passive citizenship, which seems to be our fate in this country for some time to come.

Welcome Back!

Hello world!

I just came back from a huuuge trip! I had ZERO plane troubles and ZERO luggage issues. Throw that in with plenty of exercise, good food, fun in the sun, and no trouble with the law. Add a pinch of moral rectitude and personal discipline. Mix that in with a successful non-smoking lifestyle, and you get a terrific holiday! Makes for a great portion of family bonding and maintaining friendships with cousins and relatives.

I am back and 2009 feels like it's begging to be a good year: I choose to make it a good year, and I'm going to have fun during it, and I'll be happy when it's over.

There is a small issue of career, education, and money. Always something to keep us on our toes eh!


Quick Survey:
Canada
Politically: Down
Economically: Down
Strategically: Up
Militarily: Down
Health: Up

Now 2/5 ain't bad!

I predict for 2009 that Canada is going to be a hilarious place full of political upheaval,( what with the parliament forced to close for a 'cooling down' period and now coming back for a running start in opposition of the government)...

Stay tuned for allegations of corruption, and a delicious slice of nepotism!!!! Gotta love it!

Hope
