Billions and Billions

No, I do not mean to reference Carl Seagan and his wonderful book on the universe, but yet the hundreds of billions of dollars about to be handed out. Americans are once again being lead by fear. "If we do not do something quick it will be a financial catastrophe!" Finance and the Banking system is not an act of God, were one day there is a hurricane and another clear skies, but is a reflection of choices made by humans. There are architects and think tanks that pull strings to get reactions, there are massive interests and egos at play here. Has there ever truly been a "free market" where supply and demand have respectfully guided value? There is an inherent problem with Capitalism. To capitalize, one must seemingly have something or someone to take advantage of, does this not seem a problem? Also, every developed nation expects there to be a growth of their GDP every quarter. How can this be sustainable? When Ed Bernays figured that if companies were to market towards human kinds subconscious he did us all a massive disservice by ushering in the age of consumerism.

Ok, I just drove 11 hours straight and should get some rest. I have a long day of Kung Fu in the morning...

Be well
