Death of modern economy- hopefully!

I have always found the idea of making money out of money completely insane and unnatural... even Aristotle thought so :)

(this one is not only a horror-story, but disgusting because of the level of baser instincts given a free ride- greed, power, cheating, impulsiveness, etc etc... Gives a sense of what low levels these guys can stoop... My goodness! I could not watch it at one go.. but had to take breaks every now and then, because of its shock value... saddest part was.. its all true... and there are people who are entangled in it all... the octopus like grip it had on the world, over people is still not yet over).

And here is a video that 'the party is over'... finally! Hooray!!!

Insane, but if this system doesn't end, it will destroy all of us! It has already lowered the arguments where the protestors are being labeled as 'jealous' of the rich and powerful!

  1. Can only agree with you and happy to join hand to give it a boog push! Conscious living, high thinking, service to mankind and, above all, cultivating benevolence in the heart, come what may ... I read recently somewhere that the only place the forces that seek to invade the human mind with this insanity cannot corrupt is the heart simply because they have no awareness of their own heart and therefore have no access to what is taking place there ...

  2. Oh "only place the forces that seek to invade the human mind with this insanity cannot corrupt is the heart simply because they have no awareness of their own heart and therefore have no access to what is taking place there"

    That gives quite a bit of optimism to me :)

    You must have also heard of the movement called De-growth! Those guys seems to be the few in the field of economics, having their heart at the right place.

  3. Optimism we must have - the script is about victory ... after the big collapse. Life always has its way; spirit is master and will remain so. What we see now is an extreme of sheer insanity - all ugliness and madness openly spread on sale in the street. But it cannot last forever because it is false and falsehood is an empty force. But yes, it is its time now but that will pass soon and something greater that it is our task to manifest, will be again.
    I saw you mentioning Pondi - are you a friend of Aurobindo and the Mother. I am.

    I do not know De-growth but would very interested to - is there a link?

  4. I totally believe in what you are saying. Just that some times I feel impatient and want to see it all before I die :)
    Here is a collection of links on degrowth http://myownmindspace.blogspot.in/2012/06/economy-based-on-care-craft-culture.html

    Oh Yes I love SA & M :)
    I often entertain the idea of totally moving in there someday :)
    I recently finished a 6 weeks course on Indian Psychology in Pondi and now I am having withdrawal symptoms :))
