  1. A BRAIN FREEZE happens when the ordinary citizens tries to follow the dialog of these KNOWN CROOKS.

    Corporate power broker have become Institutionalized,

    Therefore the right questions are WHY, HOW and WHEN?

    Most of us reading this article know the WHY, HOW and WHEN, but does us knowing do anything for those who do not have a clue?

    NO WAY — so then what can we do to make sure that what we know is passed around for the many others that are in our sheepfold understand.

    I proclaim that the only method that the many that lack good understanding is going to understand is with short to the point videos posted on You Tube.

    Many of the few good investigative journalist that know WHY, HOW and WHEN have made such short films that gets to the point in record time, however some have gone off on the deep end and made longer films and many just get lost then turn it off.

    WHY, the attention to too many details is a brain overload.

    We in America, some in the UK some more in France and a few others around must set our faces to the winds that are blowing from the Corporate power brokers and stand against those winds with a more powerful portrayal of what they are doing as WRONG.

    So as far as I am concerned I believe I will put and play my money on those who do short to the point free videos destined to go on You Tube.

    • Good point Dwight. I really agree with your principled position.

      Two things emerge from this huge scandal. The first is that we must insist on adequate depth and detail; the other is that maybe it should fall to those who have established the facts and grasped the implications, to make a simpler digest accessible to others, so that those with less time or capacity can get the essential idea, without undue distortion or bias, shaped by agendas or freighted with personal baggage loaded with prejudice.

      That said, personal stuff is very important; because who we are is what we do, and how we live defines the quality of our will to self-determination; it blazes a trail to individuated empowerment, to moral clarity and to responsible ethical conduct. In short, it promotes community cohesion and reciprocity; or in other words, virtuous (ie ecological) participatory citizenship. Personally, I think justice is about intelligent social responsibility and ethical proportionality, not punitive authority. We can’t fix fractured bones by hitting them with a hammer.

      This is not say crooks should get away with fraud and theft. Only to suggest that the best cure may be a better diet of moral incentives, persuasive opportunities, rather than the habitual pattern of reward and punishment.
