Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If it's a religion, what is their God?

the perpetual profit machine, forever and ever, amen.

the really stupid thing is that once the present PTB are dethroned by events of their own too-clever-by-arf connivance, and we change systems, there will still be financial everests for these fools to climb, to assuage their egos.

their profits will just be harnessed to matters of business that reinforce the commons, instead of depleting.

it's not really the sick addiction to power that's the problem, as much as the destructivity the present system allows these psychos to achieve.

poor benighted sods need to be pointed towards socially acceptable goals to release their drive to excellence...

'power-with' instead of 'power-over'.

there will actually be more of the former once we put fossil folly behind us, power-freaks will always be around, sure as eggs. the culture in which they swim will change as a tipping point of people numbers happens. events are accelerating towards this global plot point.

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
