2. Extinction: the death of birth.

If you don't have time for the entire thing, go to 4:41 & listen to Ray Anderson. His words, his experience, speaking as a CEO, are moving & inspirational! (What a contrast to the psychopath at the first of the segment.) He can't be the only CEO out there thinking along these lines!

Thanks, marmar. I put The Corporation in my Netfilx queue. I've seen it a few times before, but it's always good to review on occasion.

4. Anderson is living proof that attitudes can change.

There may be hope for all of us.

3. How come green taxes are being proposed for the little people?


Mr Moore: that is the loud rumor over the web.

So unless this point is clarified nothing good will come out of this reasonable proposal. So how about making beyond theoretical with somekind of real live data?

Like the basic infraestructure of the current and past economy; how many participants in the stock market, or jobs lost with the changes, and what will they do then; how much money is going into what triggerhat can then realistically be turned into a different, green, but useful stock; or even more puzzling, what will happen is the economy is not based into a stock format; etc.

Just a useful summary of something like that will trigger useful thinking and participation of the masses to generate a truly sustainnable economy. The sustain/support of the economy is without a doubt dependent on the masses participation, but if that purchasing power, or rug, is pulled from underneath it will crumble, or crash. My simple logic but realistic.

The alternative will be to open the economy in proportion to the population number, and do something with the parameters of prices, devaluation, value, competition allowed for productivity. I learned some of this same issues from sport, and is just funny that those dirty competitors do ressemble 'reptilians'. In the same scenario, the strategy to counteract the viciousness is found also in sports, and the common denominator across is the 'innocence' of the referees.

But this more important than sports, so at the very least allowed a parallel economy, with laws and everything so people can live a life, and maybe that will be the rue stock to replenish the loss or self defeat of the powerful supermen, because superwomen are from a different line of power. So far.

5. typos


blame it on the high tech of the 21st century, the century of knowledge and civilization and progress. It has screwed up many things. Like the economy.

Again, basically do a summary of the main points and numbers of the economy to see the effect of the changes, but use actual public data available already, and see the effect of swapping to the theoretical policies proposed. If you are right people will support it.

Or forget about the blame game going on, release the little people from the debt, and o.p.e.n the economy. That is, seed capital to it in proportion to population number, use math rather than somekind of obsure/magic definition for critical components, and simple enough for lay people to follow. NO DIRTY TRICKS ALLOWED if you want productivity. And if you are going to claim being a 'humanist'.

But honestly, I don't believe it will come to that. That means bad news.
