Financial and social impact on ordinary people (financial crisis – no payout/cash for ordinary people : only the already wealthy – the bailout should start at the very bottom and not from the top down – if government’s don’t change fast, ‘beware of the peoples wrath’) would be worse than that in the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Regime and ‘Cultural Attitude Change’ USA and UK’ – ‘Barack Obama’
The only way to sort out a depression quickly is to throw cash directly at all the ordinary people (Keynesian Economics http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keynesian_economics USA’s 3% of annual GDP not nearly enough: $1 to unemployed / poor / social security is spent – not saved, and worth + or – $1.60 to the countries overall economy: less than a return of 0.50 in the $ to rescue a Bank, but without a Bank you are a bit stuck! This lesson to eradicate poverty and deprivation), obviously has not been learnt by the greedy or governments, UK and USA, with their worst records (industrialized nations of the west, and may cost at present 7,000$ extra per US household for payout of the few ‘greedy bankers’ and ‘bad banks’ – This is what the average household has lost on top, of what they already may have lost – on pensions, savings, so on…! Ref, BofE, FSA, and ECB – ‘social and financial collapse of Europe’ 2009. “I don’t know what the bank was thinking about” a top banker – I know, ‘it was only “profit and bonus”’. “Legacy Debt”! USA and UK having the worst inequality record, poverty (children) and deprivation – childhood pregnancies, so on…When it costs nothing to sort this out, like the more advanced countries in the west – how appalling: the ones who think, or even worse know that they are the best and the most powerful – are actually, the worst! Ref, ‘The Certainty Of Carl Jung And Others’ http://luckyme0.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!A18BF3FCC5E126A2!676.entry
“History abounds with examples of really sick societies lasting for hundreds of years, but we do not wish to know about them, as it makes us feel uncomfortable”.

The Countryside – 60% at least of the population live in the Cities:- In 2002 we marched for Liberty but, as our then Chairman John Jackson reminds us in his new article on Our Kingdom, we also marched for Livelihoods. We will continue to campaign for the liberty of the rural minority, but without livelihood liberty is bitter sweet. Rural people could not be less culpable for the credit crunch. They never rode the wave of corporate greed, bought second homes or expected bonuses. They have transformed the rural economy in the last 10 years through hard work and determination, but many now face an uncertain future through no fault of their own. If the country can spend billions of pounds to prop up the banks, it can afford to look after the livelihoods of the countryside as well.

BBC Robert Peston “Authoritative sources have told me that Sir Fred Goodwin, the former chief executive of Royal Bank of Scotland – who is widely blamed for the colossal mess it’s in – is already drawing a pension of £650,000 a year”. http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/robertpeston/2009/02/fred_goodwin_to_receive_650000.html

About luckyme0

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
