For anyone who at least wants to understand why the World as we have been taught to understand it is about to shift into something straight out of fantasy and science fiction…namely a sort of technological medieval society where anyone not inside the ruling classes will be subjected to serving their feudal corporate overlords (which is basically what we have now, just less explicit) .. go to www.zerohedge.com.
There is so much material being published there in the service of an open debate about not only where the world economy is going (down is the ZH consensus), but also about what is likely to come next. What kind of world do we want to live in? The crux of the matter is: what is money? And why do the people who control its creation and distribution through the human economy have that power to do so? These systems were designed by very wealthy people centuries ago and the fight to keep the effective circle of influence as tightly knit as possible is just as old. Anyway instead of pointing out particular things I invite everyone who wants to open their eyes to check out Zero Hedge and start your studies… I’ve been at it for two years in a fairly all consuming manner and I’m only starting to understand the magnitude of the problems that we will have to contend with in the coming decades. Life is about to get much more complicated for many of us which is not necessarily a bad thing… I would much rather have to struggle against oppression than be subjected to accidentally coming across Pants Off Dance Off on MTV.
This is Neo-taking-the-blue-pill level stuff. The system that has been running human affairs has definitely created a lot of wealth but at what cost? That is the question that is currently in the works of being answered. Just take the blue pill.
