All this agitprop noise about the 'fiscal cliff', and the need for the economy to grow at all costs, how the poor 'job-creators' need lower taxes, so they may help the poor, by giving them work,. really? The economy must ALWAYS grow?
Can we not just have a sustainable economy? One that maintains level and stable livings for people, without ripping down the last vestiges of the natural systems that sustain all life. This corporate/military culture is broken, when the thing people are calling for is more sht jobs,. and freedom for the wealthy to not be taxed to create these sht jobs.
The push for endless growth rises directly from the fact that this 'economy', the one based on the broken ideology of endless growth, is a straight up pyramid scam. The endless interest for the endless debt created by the workers in the sht jobs attempting to buy the right to 'just live' in the world, is what keeps the 1% in the 1%. They skim the interest for the debt,. yet they give nothing of value in return. They have a monopoly on lending (interest collecting) and a machine that make borrowing a requirement to survive. Even when we are debt-free and self sufficient, we are still funneling money to the 1%, whenever we pay government taxes,. since all that money goes to service the old debt and all new spending is done through new borrowing! Yes from the same old 1% corporate banksters who built and maintain this 'system' or pyramid scam.
