saving the planet
 is *much* easier
  than you think

.. dump all erring ideologies ...

  .. get totally sustainable ...

    .. put the crims into gaol

Thesis/Subtitle: a fair exchange is no robbery

Concomitant: life is about people, not $s

Corollary: the commons belong to all

 [update, 26Sep'12]


Preamble: That we are being lied to, should not be in dispute. That lies are deployed to deceive is the warning: Watch out! That wars are not just wickedly destructive is also not in doubt, but that the US/Z wars are murdering for spoil (soil, oil) = criminal - and are totally unnecessary, to boot (nett human happiness is *not* being improved = massive understatement) - so the US/Zs wars must be stopped. The 'new' economies (neoliberalism = erring ideology) are crashing and burning; complete roll-back of erring ideologies is *required*. Speaking of 'crashing and burning,' so is our climate. Remedial action required for all of above, soonest.

RBA warns Australia exposed to Asia vulnerabilities
By business editor Peter Ryan
Updated September 25, 2012 13:20:10
  «The review also notes the pressures on wholesale fund markets have eased and that banks have restored good market access to international markets over the past six months.» 

Comment: Banking on the wrong track (BND, Ellen Brown).

IMF chief urges Europe, US to boost growth
Posted September 25, 2012 08:19:46
  «The head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, has called for urgent action from Europe and the United States to turn around a slowing global economy.
"My main message today is the urgent need to implement the policy actions required to secure the global recovery," Ms Lagarde said in a speech at a Washington think tank.»

Comment 1: The IMF is part of the problem ("Economic Hit Man").

Comment 2: Eternal growth on a finite planet is impossible.

Comment 3: Worse, the IMF itself is involved with the EU in forcing austerity and 'structural change' (code for neoliberalism, including privatisations = theft), exactly the opposite (according to Keynes) of what is needed to stimulate 'normal' economies = encourage employment.

Comment 4: Deliberately caused unemployment is 'exploding,' and see Fordism below. Also see the US; the 'economic policies' since Thatcher, Reagan et al. have finally 'hit the wall;' neoliberalist economies and their victims are going broke = proof of erring ideology.

Senate to begin power price inquiry
Posted September 25, 2012 06:09:12
  «Consumer group Choice says recent electricity price rises have been to a significant extent avoidable and unjustified.
It says the Australian Energy Regulator should be given greater powers to scrutinise the amount of money electricity providers spend on infrastructure.
But the Energy Supply Association of Australia says providers need to replace old generators, poles and wires.»

Comment 1: Just the one word: Privatisation.

Comment 2: In two words: Market idiocy.

Comment 3: In three words: Natural, egalitarian monopolies.

Comment 4: The 'erring ideology' (neoliberalism, 'economic rationalism') has it that govt. can't deliver, so private enterprise is to be preferred (= forced), and competition is to be encouraged (or artificially conjured from a monopoly), gratuitously adding 'for profit,' since that's what drives (greedy) capitalists. But 'capitalist heaven' is a monopoly (duopoly, cartels). Privatised electricity is front-loaded with shareholders and/or debt, both to be paid from newly extracted 'cost-overhead' = profits; organise anything 'for profit' and that's exactly what will be preferentially extracted, even before acceptable service delivery (now, think medicine for profit, and for proof of failure, examine the US 'health' system and outcomes).

Comment 5: Note the article picture; another 'benefit' of privatisation is the change from 'preventative maintenance' to 'only fix what breaks,' *guaranteeing* power-outages, sometimes even in the feeblest of 'weather events.'

5,000 police sent to quell mass Foxconn brawl

  «Drawing attention as a supplier and assembler for Apple products, the company has faced accusations of poor conditions and mistreatment of workers at its operations in China, where it employs about 1 million workers.» 

Comment 1: Apple is the richest company in the world (About 22,600,000 results); IF it pays (as much as; grave doubts) $200 for 'imported components' (= off-shoring) AND sells the item (iPhone 5) for $US600 THEN Apple's US-markup = 200%. One may see how Apple 'works,' and just how happy its 'sub-contractors' may be.

Comment 2: Note that both *by definition and as designed*, out-sourcing/off-shoring/wage-arbitration reduces workers' incomes. Recall "Fordism." In a nutshell, IF the workers don't get adequately paid jobs THEN they can't partake in consumerism = buy the goods to keep the economy churning - not to mention starving, or dying early due to unaffordable health-care.

Abbott unveils plan to boost defence spending
 By chief political correspondent Simon Cullen
 Updated September 25, 2012 12:33:37
  «"Any savings that the Coalition can find in the defence bureaucracy will be reinvested in greater military capacity," Mr Abbott said.
"Our aspiration, as the Commonwealth's budgetary position improves, would be to restore the 3 per cent real growth in defence spending that marked the final seven years of the Howard government."
A long-running concern among ex-servicemen and women is the use of inflation figures as the basis of indexation for military pensions.»

Comment 1: Continuous "real growth" (here military spending) on a finite planet is impossible.

Comment 2: Abbott implies some "real growth" in threat to be countered: Totally risible, since simply not credible. Abbott puts himself forward as a possible PM - be careful what you wish for.

Comment 3: The rest is 'neoliberal standard;' cost-cutting by reducing govt. function, penny-pinching on 'entitlements' = cynical-coding for *required* social services.

Comment 4: The absolute worst, is that peace is not even envisaged.

Insider attacks at forefront of troop training

  «He says there has been a focus on cross-cultural learning to limit the threat of so-called green-on-blue attacks.
"We also need to make sure we have forced
[sic - force?] protection measures in place at every interaction that we have just in case there is something in the situation that goes beyond the cultural clash," he said.» 

Comment: Imagine; Aus-armed forces are sent to Afghanistan to kill natives and destroy their infrastructure (that's all bombs and bullets do); but as well as that, they have to be taught 'cultural sensitivity' then watch their native-companions like hawks in order that the Afghan-quislings they recruit as 'local help' don't turn on them. Recall Mme Clinton "How could this happen in a country we helped liberate?"


Summation: Things are crook, pretty-much everywhere - then there's the accelerating Arctic and glacier melting.

  Ooops! (Shit, fan.)


Argument; simple, but not simplistic suggestions:

1a. Stop all wars. Return all 'expeditionary' forces back to behind their own borders. Note that this would require the invading Zionists (and their heirs and successors) to vacate Palestine, and the hapless ELO/Os to get full reparations = improperly alienated land/property to revest where possible, adequate = acceptable recompense where not plus a *sincere* apology by the Nuremberg-class war-criming, illegal occupiers on their way out.

1b. Establish 'truth, justice and reconciliation' commissions to properly prosecute the real war criminals, starting with Zs, the US and their cowardly SQSHsO = regime-leaders.

2. Dump the erring ideologies. There is enough information, and presumably enough talent (proven Keynes theory, even some of Marx plus other people-friendly, proven-to-work methods; Hudson, Brown and lots more 'in hiding' or, more likely, deliberately side-lined). Just stop the wickedly corrupt purchasing of academia/sell-out of academics, and put them to honest and productive work.

3. De-privatise 'the commons' = all natural monopolies = required services like water, sewage, electricity, roads & railways.

4. Properly regulate banking = control the banksters (prosecuting any crooks), especially including de-privatising the entire money-creation part, and separating the gamblers from the trading banks.

5. Sufficient employment can be created by constructing infrastructure, primarily and as absolute 1st priority building a 100% sustainable power generation system (solar, wind etc.) = stop *all* burning of fossil carbon for power = get CO2 concentration falling.

6. Stop the MSM+PFBCs telling us lies. The lies create a cloud of deceit = pushed propaganda paradigm, enabling the baddies to disguise their crimes (they can only hide so much; one can see through the subterfuges with eyes properly open), and by the lies so dumbing-down the citizens, that the citizens either don't notice, or stop caring about the crimes being propagated in particular, and our precarious situation in general.


Fazit: It's really not too hard; either we curb all the rotten 'vested interests' (M/I/C/$4a†-plex + I/J/Z-plex), restore social-justice and reverse climate-change - or our once jewel-like, acceptable life-supporting biosphere/ecology goes over the XS-CO2-CCC cliff.


Update, 26Sep'12; PS - short note on banking.

It used to be that money (both as a store of value and medium of exchange) was 'real,' typically bits of metal = gold or silver or some-such = money had some *intrinsic* value of its own. Whatever. But then we 'moved on' to paper money, still 'backed' by some amount of bullion etc. After The Nixon Shock of 1971, unilaterally cancelling the direct convertibility of the United States dollar to gold, the $US (and effectively the world) moved to fiat = 'printed' currency. It means that the money itself is completely worthless, the only value deriving from trust in the system = what people agree that a mark, a yen, a buck, or a pound - is worth. Money is now conjured 'out of thin air' as bookkeeping entries, typically by a single computer-keystroke (after a few preliminary ones).

'Fractional reserve banking' is a leftover from the paper/bullion era, whereby fiat money is imagined to have two 'sorts' = 'special' and 'normal,' and trading banks (essentially private) are required to maintain a certain amount of special money on deposit in a central = reserve bank, and may lend out (at interest) some multiple (= inverse of the fraction, typically say 1/10) to people, businesses, whatever. It's a trick and always was, and it works like this:

A trading bank 'accumulates' a certain amount of 'special' money (formerly 'real' money = bullion, say, now possibly govt. bonds) - and deposits this in the reserve bank. The trading bank then *creates* 10 times this amount of money (via a single computer-keystroke, simultaneously creating an asset and a liability, so that the books balance.) The trading bank may then lend this money out - at interest. This means that effectively all the money 'out there' in circulation (excepting possibly actual cash as banknotes, literally printed at almost no cost by the govt.) - all the money 'out there' has been borrowed by somebody, and that somebody is paying interest on it.

This interest is a cost, usually to business, and a) will be passed on to the customer of such businesses, and b) the interest becomes income to the trading bank - *which did absolutely SFA* = zero effort to 'earn' it.

It means that this interest is a tax = continuous drain on society, extracted from customers = at the end of the line us, we the people, and 'given' to the trading banks, *for free*. Nice racket - supported by our govt.s.

An alternative system, referred to above as "BND, Ellen Brown" - as an example, is for the money-creation function to be moved entirely into the *state-owned* reserve bank, and the interest paid becomes income *to the people* - via the state.

A required accompanying 'reform' would be to mandate that the govt. then handle the income responsibly, *not* currently guaranteed under most so-called 'democratic' govt.s these days.

Another flaw in the current 'trading bank money creation swindle' is that no money is created to cover the interest = % - which may explain the impossible demand for permanent growth. BUT: Under the above 'all % to the people' plan, the state gets the % then spends it back into the economy, providing required public services - so everything balances, and as another 'bonus,' the amount of money created can be 'controlled' such that inflation can be set to zero.

So why don't all govt.s copy the outstanding BND example?


PPS Since *all* money (a mark, a yen, a buck, or a pound) is now fiat, it makes *no* sense whatsoever, to borrow money from overseas = FDI (foreign direct investment) - so why allow it? Just like the 'trading bank money creation swindle,' one result of FDI is that profits flow back = overseas, and that money is permanently lost to the country = another continuous drain on society. Why do our so-called 'representatives' not only tolerate FDI but also actively encourage it? Sounds more like the acts of traitors.

PPPS Great minds think along similar lines!
