Evolution in the Crosshairs. Today, more than ever, Evolution is guided by conscious choice. For conscious choice to be effective, obstacles to a prosperous, unlimited, and sustainable future have to be addressed and resolved

I would keep top secret the steps required to change cherished but distorted belief systems through Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’s “Grieving Process”, specifically the “Star Spangled Banner” exalted mass belief hysteria, played at sports gladiator mob mentality arenas, feeding the desperately seeking …. memories of the glorious past, as though this glory still existed today in a crumbling empire. O'Leary utilizes the contextual framework developed by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross for the grieving process to help understand his own emotional challenge of seeing external idols fall and finding the courage to face the stark responsibilities that arise from abandoning vicarious authority
If I wanted America to Fail, I would follow with precision the program/itinerary exactly as history portrays the events played out since the suppression of energy evolution in the mid forties, the major squash of electrogravitics in the 60’s, subsequently fueling scientific curiosity in the “hidden variables”, The Trouble with Physics, and the hunt for the obvious Zero Point specified in StarSteps.
If I wanted America to Fail, I would use psychology to its maximum capacity to dumb down the people, make them submissive to the quite voice of authority, adding the implied threat to their paycheck, if they do not continue to support an economic system slowly strangling the world, including now, America’s own, as Infinite Resource Wars continue to accelerate for total power, greed and control. I would insure that the controls put in place after the 1929 Economic Crash would be systematically removed, so that those who do the least would take control of 98% of the world’s wealth regardless of failing city and state governments and communities.
If I wanted America to Fail, I would make sure that Sanity, Common Sense and Reason would never again return to the energy and economic domain and interfere with the infinite, oversaturated, dive into meaningless Trivia:
· Taboo – Economic Decline in a world exploding with population and needs (?)
· Taboo – Is Science Stupid to be stuck in Oil and deadly Nuclear access, stagnating for over one hundred years since Einstein presented to the world his E=MC2 equation?
If I wanted America to Fail I would insist that the outcomes from the marvels of our modern 21st Century Science aiding intelligence, wisdom, and Understanding, would look like the right column of this picture:
When Bankers Rule the World
How we can call out the myths, restructure the banking system, shut down the con game, and take back America.
When Bankers Rule the World by David Korten — YES! Magazine
The tell-all defection of Greg Smith, a former Goldman Sachs executive, provided an insider’s view of the moral corruption of the Wall Street banks that control of much of America’s economy and politics. Smith confirms what insightful observers have known for years: the business purpose of Wall Street bankers is to maximize their personal financial take without regard to the consequences for others.
Wall Street’s World of IllusionWhy has the public for so long tolerated Wall Street’s reckless abuses of power and accepted the resulting devastation? The answer lies in a cultural trance induced by deceptive language and misleading indicators backed by flawed economic theory and accounting sleight-of-hand. To shatter the trance we need to recognize that the deception that Wall Street promotes through its well-funded PR machine rests on three false premises.
- We best fulfill our individual moral obligation to society by maximizing our personal financial gain.
- Money is wealth and making money increases the wealth of the society.
- Making money is the proper purpose of the individual enterprise and is the proper measure of prosperity and economic performance.
The devastation created by Wall Street’s failure affirms three truths that are the foundation on which millions of people are at work building a New Economy:
- Our individual and collective well-being depends on acting with concern for the well-being of others. We all do better when we look out for one another.
- Money is not wealth. It is just numbers. Sacrificing the health and happiness of billions of people to grow numbers on computer hard drives to improve one’s score on the Forbes Magazine list of the world’s richest people is immoral. Managing a society’s economy to facilitate this immoral competition at the expense of people and nature is an act of collective insanity.
- The proper purpose of the economy and the enterprises that comprise it is to provide good jobs and quality goods and services beneficial to the health and happiness of people, community and nature. A modest financial profit is essential to a firm’s viability, but is not its proper purpose.
Ends/Means ConfusionReal wealth includes healthful food, fertile land, pure water, clean air, caring relationships, quality education and health care, fulfilling opportunities for service, healthy and happy children, peace, time for meditation and spiritual reflection. These are among the many forms of real wealth to which we properly expect a sound economy to contribute.
It is a very, very bad idea to yield control of the issuance and allocation of credit (money) to Wall Street banks run by con artists who operate beyond the reach of public accountability.Wall Street has so corrupted our language, however, that it is difficult even to express the crucial distinction between money (a facilitator of economic activity), and real wealth (the purpose of economic activity).
Financial commentators routinely use terms like wealth, capital, resources, and assets when referring to phantom wealth financial assets, which makes them sound like something real and substantial—whether or not they are backed by anything of real value. Similarly, they identify folks engaged in market speculation and manipulation as investors, thus glossing over the distinction between those who game the system to expropriate wealth and those who contribute to its creation.
The same confusion plays out in the use of financial indicators, particularly stock price indices, to evaluate economic performance. The daily rise and fall of stock prices tells us only how fast the current stock bubble is inflating or deflating and thus how Wall Street speculators are doing relative to the rest of us.
Once we are conditioned to embrace measures of Wall Street success as measures of our own well-being, we are easily recruited as foot soldiers in Wall Street’s relentless campaign to advance policies that support its control of money and thus its hold on nearly every aspect of our lives.
Modern EnslavementIn a modern society in which our access to most essential of life from food and water to shelter and health care depends on money, control of money is the ultimate instrument of social control.
Fortunately, with the help of Occupy Wall Street, Americans are waking up to an important truth. It is a very, very bad idea to yield control of the issuance and allocation of credit (money) to Wall Street banks run by con artists who operate beyond the reach of public accountability and who Greg Smith tells us in his New York Times op-ed view the rest of us as simple-minded marks ripe for the exploiting.
Before Wall Street dismantled it, America had a system of transparent well-regulated community-based, locally-owned, Main Street financial institutions empowered to put local savings to work investing in building real community wealth.By going along with its deceptions, we the people empowered Wall Street to convert America from a middle class society of entrepreneurs, investors, and skilled workers into a nation of debt slaves. Buying into Wall Street lies and illusions, Americans have been lured into accepting, even aggressively promoting, “tax relief” for the very rich and the “regulatory relief” and “free trade” agreements for corporations that allowed Wall Street to suppress wages and benefits for working people through union busting, automation, and outsourcing jobs to foreign sweatshops.
Once working people were unable to make ends meet with current income, Wall Street lured them into making up the difference by taking on credit card and mortgage debt they had no means to repay. They were soon borrowing to pay not only for current consumption, but as well to pay the interest on prior unpaid debt.
This is the classic downward spiral of debt slavery that assures an ever-growing divide between the power and luxury of a creditor class and the powerless desperation of a debtor class.
Bust the Trusts, Liberate AmericaBefore Wall Street dismantled it, America had a system of transparent, well-regulated, community-based, locally owned, Main Street financial institutions empowered to put local savings to work investing in building real community wealth through the creation and allocation of credit to finance local home buyers and entrepreneurs.
Although dismissed by Wall Street players as small, quaint, provincial, and inefficient, this locally rooted financial system created the credit that financed our victory in World War II, the Main Street economies that unleashed America’s entrepreneurial talents, the investments that made us the world leader in manufacturing and technology, and the family-wage jobs that built the American middle class. It is a proven model with important lessons relevant for current efforts to restore financial integrity and build an economy that serves all Americans.
What If Corporations Couldn’t Use Our Commons For Free?
How our shared resources could become a source of common wealth.
For far too long, we have allowed Wall Street to play us as marks in a confidence scam of audacious proportion. Then we wonder at our seeming powerlessness to deal with job loss, depressed wages, mortgage foreclosures, political corruption and the plight of our children as they graduate into debt bondage.
Let us be clear. We will no longer play the sucker for Wall Street con artists and we will no longer tolerate public bailouts to save failed Wall Street banks.
Henceforth, when a Wall Street financial institution fails to maintain adequate equity reserves to withstand a major financial shock or is found guilty of systematic violation of the law and/or defrauding the public, we must demand that federal authorities take it over and break it up into strictly regulated, community-accountable, cooperative member-owned financial services institutions.
Occupy Wall Street has focused national and global attention on the source of the problem. Now it’s time for action to bust the Wall Street banking trusts, replace the current Wall Street banking system with a Main Street banking system, and take back America from rule by Wall Street bankers.
