Like how we've been told how bad of a crisis this is and that we need to pass the bailout right now?
Yeah. Exactly. They need us to bail them out, with our money mind you. And then through media persuasion they get you to work harder with threates of unemployment.
Don't know if you've ever seen this, Propaganda Media. Basically, it's a US Gov field manual on how to use the media to persuade us into doing what they want. Actually used by the Army orginally.
Well, Wal*Mart does have the cheapest shit in town...
True. I don't blame the consumer though, we need to spend our money wisely. I blame unregulated and uncontroled free markets that allow for the giants to monopolize. But if those giants fail, then a lot of people get swept up because all of our eggs are in one basket, so to speak. We are dependent on a few major companies for practically everything.
We don't have to let them control our lives!
You're right, we don't.

Looking at the big picture, I don't think there's much hope. Every world power goes through a predictable series of steps. The U.S. is now in or close to the last one. The economy may recover from the current recession or it may not. The final result is inevitable. The machine is too big to be turned without an incredible amount of public will.
