A Springboard from Which to Explore and Ask Why?

So where is the Corporate Raid going to be, My guess Iran needs to Look out? Libya is a Sorbet after the Iraqi Starter a clearing of the pallette ahead of the Entre that is Iran.
This strangulation of the money supply By the Banks is fully Government backed, Ellen Brown is very persuasive in the Banking aspects of Libya, then take Pakistani policy and China Trade.

The BBC does seem to have undergone something of a face lift in the past few years its corporatisation is a very bad thing, the same thing has happened at Universities and most other institutions. He who pays the piper calls the tune has never had more resonance.
I worked for Shell UK in the mid 80’s when the Piper Alpha Disaster happened, I enjoyed my time there and made some lasting friendships in the bubble of the big corporation you do get a bit Stepford Wife about the whole thing and certainly do not get to see the whole picture far from it, and the dazzling cult of the corporate bosom certainly smothers much of a chance of getting an independent overview.
It does seem a strange way to answer a question with a question or accusation. The BBC is very bad on Libya and the Obama and Royal Wedding stuff was sycophantic. I am an ex pat living in Sweden now and hardly bother with the Today Program no question according to this adopted Viking the BBC has been nobbled.

Wonderful Term, “DEAD TREE AUTHORS”
Hey Alan, under what name was Harvat’s physics thesis written? — goethean 21:27, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Hi Goethean. I’m not sure, I could probably find out, but I don’t think there is anything notable about the thesis.
I checked the nomination for deletion page and there are 4 delete votes so far – (3 for speedy), so i guess the article will be deleted. I’ll copy the latest version to the Integralwiki project so it won’t be lost. M Alan Kazlev 21:57, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Well, if the thesis was published, that could be a reason to keep the article. Dead tree-published authors are usually considered inherently notable. Web-published authors, not so. Also, the article-for-deletion doesn’t work on a majoritarian basis; there must be consensus in order to delete. — goethean 16:25, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
M Alen Kazlev, some reading to do here for sure.

Uncertainty and Algorithms and other statistical devices are used to control our expectations and mould our perceptions ,
Banking is no less manipulative of its own narrative.
I did this brief blog which for me represents a video representation of the abstractions we accept as empirical.

I have been searching for a some sort of Dutch Monetary Reform for a while now, but sadly enough I haven’t found one.
Therefore I’m conducting a research in to the possiblities of creating one.
Is there anyone here who would like to join me or can guide me in the right direction?
I’ll add more information to this topic when available.

Rhetoric Propaganda" The Industrial Monetary Complex"

Rhetoric Propaganda” The Industrial Monetary Complex”

Postby RogerGLewis » Wed 25th May, 2011 (05:58)
For the past Two years I have followed with increasing amazement the sheer un evenness of the Debate on Climate Change by any stretch for research science it is almost completely one sided. The money is backing the CO2 side of the debate and they have the PR budgets sewn up as well as most of the research money. I am an Environmentalist probably what some might even describe as being of a Tree Hugging bent I find the Notion of Carbon Trading highly suspect my preferred solution is to Tax the Polluter at source and provide disincentives to creating unnecessary demand. Typical chicken and egg stuff but consumerism is the invention of capitalism in my own world view( YMMV ) That wonderful internetism “Your Mileage May Vary”. is applicable to to all statements one might make of opinion or indeed apparent empirical notions.
So why is it relevant, well cue music. Sleepers Awake, J. S Bach, Black Beauty or Llyods TSB Theme Tune. To challenge the hugely profitable vested interests. That what is proposed challenges this, is just one example of the ingrained acceptance of their existence and safeness conditioned into all of our psyches they have the Right to be the custodians of their System which is for our benefit how dare we question.

The Economist is running discussion on whether Banking is now safe, This was posted in the discussion this morning.

Abraham Baeza • Yes it’s safe and will continue to do so for the next few years. Sure some banks will be sacrificed and millions of jobs, assets and money will be lost with new schemes and complex investments, but it’s naive to consider a world without banks or financial institutions. I’m pretty sure the banking system will remain stable as long as there’s need for capital and money supply.

I replied.

Roger Lewis • Abraham, No one in the preceding comments even hints at a world without Banks or Financial institutions. As for the notion of sacrificing some banks and blithe acceptance of new schemes and complex investments I wonder at which school of comic / tradgedy you took the unit on? Perhaps it was Ironic observational deconstructionism, taught by a certain M Freidman at Chicago. 
The banking system is a feral WMD and systemically unstable What Nassim N Taleb calls 
“epistemic arrogance” typifies the Arrogance of the System and this is not safe.

There are other examples of the well meaning Group Think that will be encountered there are evangelical believers in the Status quo and it is this army of footsoldiers who will be motivated into getting the Vote Out against the “Deniers” “Flat Earthers” ” Tin Foil Hatters” we may as well choose a perjorative we also find amusing right now and try and introduce it as the common coinage of phrase. Something that conjures up the idea of Profligate scroungers would be ideal maybe “the Rakes”. Anyway I think you can see where I’m going with this. Heres the communication strategy for the Climate Carbon Trading Lobby this is what we will be up against.

Anyway I thought a communication/ PR strategy would be a sensible discussion to start.
