cult and paste

be careful where you clique

In defense of underconsumption

PREFACE: DOGMA AND THE FALSE CAUSE

The costliest misadventure we have made is accepting that the only kind of economy is this democratic free market economy. The safety nets at the bottom were too expensive so we put the nets on top to protect the drivers of the economy from crashing.

This has allowed very expensive mistakes to be made, to be rewarded and reinforced,

to perpetuate.

FOOLISHNESS

Ultimately this kind of spoiled brat behavior creates a corportate climate where people do not learn from mistakes but instead spend their energies finding ways to hide from them.

Inaccurate causes are identified

Inaccurate solutions offered

The most bizarre one is combatting underconsumption.

DIABETIC COMA

One of the most conditioned physiological attributes about the human being (or any other organism that has survived time) is the ability to deal with scarcity.

Type II Diabetes is a perfect example: Cane sugar and High fructose corn syrup were never meant to ingested daily. Treating a diabetic by giving more insulin so they can eat more cake…. that’s about what it’s like when governments try to stop a full scale economic coma by encourging us to just buy more stuff.

They cut taxes and further defund public infrastructure….

GAMBLING GRANNIES

And who suggested this in the first place?

The corporations who created business models that were based on conspicuous consumption, over consumption, planned obsolescence. Those corporations and the people who finance them…. including the grannies who invest in some cd or mutual fund they don’t know any details about….

NEW MISSION CARDS

the game can’t be fixed by making the board bigger. that only creates increased disparity and thus more volatility. Thats why even greenspan is starting to show cracks in his capitalish randian exuberance.

no,

the rules need to be changed but they won’t until people realize they can be.

AND power is doing everything it can to keep things as they are
