Save the bankers – day

October 20, 2011


– Statue de la Liberté, Paris –

Head of State:  Madame, the people want their money…

Europe:  Well give them bonds Francois; liberty bonds!

You may ask yourself why many young people are so upset in Europe these days; why they camp out, demonstrate… in Greece, in Spain, in Denmark etc.  The staggering sum of 2 billion Euros to save the banks could be one of the reasons.

2.000.000.000.000 (2 billion) Euros

500.000.000  (500 million) plus inhabitants   (As of 2008; Wikipedia)

=

4000 (4 thousand) Euros, in guarantee, per capita  – including toddlers and the aged
to save its bankers from their capital sins.

As European governments call for sacrifice and seek to sign the debt per capita, the ones who are being economically bound into their futures are increasingly upset. It is hard to blame them.

The principle of letting the children carry the burden of the sins of their fathers, the next generation the errors of the previous, is being set in stone as we talk.

While governments have legislated in the past to insure and protect private capital gain, private debt is now being socialized and distributed across society. European citizens are being offered economic chains for a crime they didn’t commit.

When did our democracy begin to reconstruct the social pyramid which it was supposed to demolish?

If the Old Order is back, in different clothes and with a different divinity, our present Mon[ey]archy could be about to breed anarchy.

It is better to repent before the innocent throw stones.

What matters most

October 17, 2011

“Yes, I understood when Noam spoke of the power of his work. I had always thought of intelligence as power, the supreme power. Understanding is not the means of mastery, but the end itself (see Spinoza). This belief, pushed through the dark channels of the libido, emerged as the determinant of my sexual preferences. I am only attracted to men who I believe to be more intelligent than I am. A detected mistake in logic considerably cools my desire. They can be shorter, they can be weaker, they can be poorer, they can be meaner, but they must be smarter. For the smart are the masters in my mattering region. And if you gain power over them, then through the transitivity of power you too are powerful.”

The Mind-Body Problem by Rebecca Goldstein

Short, weak, poor and mean! you would have to be blond to hanker after diamonds.

…Though I imagine there would be nothing wrong with having it all: gold assets, a strong libido and a fierce intelligence. Jack pot! in terms of attraction. You would be the honey where it matters; the master of secure attachment.

We need to be

October 16, 2011

In memory of a keen, and kind, Lawyer

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

“We need to be the change we wish to see in the world.”

His list of seven social sins:

1. Politics without principles

2. Wealth without work,

3. Pleasure without conscience

4. Knowledge without character

5. Commerce without morality

6. Science without humanity, and

7. Worship without sacrifice.

Something has systematically corroded his legacy; our credibility rating has dropped on all counts.

The best lawyer ever

“And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes: Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it. And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty’s sake. And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there. And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty’s sake. And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake. And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.”

Genesis 18:26-33

Now there is a lawyer before the Law.  The original bail of fifty is reduced to ten!

The art of wit

October 15, 2011

Perhaps woman’s art is of woman’s life a thing apart, ’tis man’s whole existence; just as love is said to be the reverse — though it isn’t.

(2) How was it produced

If no questions are asked behavior is unlikely to change

With question number 1 behavioral modifications are likely to take place

With question number 2 the ethical implications will make a difference
