Hi Ola
I can also see the need for a different kind of democracy that is society focused and community driven, not individualistic...I hope for an antidote to the rampant greed and disregard for life, truth and justice that we see now.
Surely we all realise by now that inequality and poverty are part of the fundamental nature of a capitalist society...so I was thinking how do we have one without the other...democracy without capitalism?
I was looking up socialism, capitalism and democracy and found something so interesting, I think you will like it...
http://www.spectacle.org/496/demo.html
Here is part: "Democracy is a consensual hallucination of people concerned with how to divide opportunity fairly. Our Constitution guarantees "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness", not happiness itself, which cannot be guaranteed to anyone. It makes a tremendous difference to know that in our country you have a shot, at least, at being president or Rockefeller. A Martian visiting earth would not be able to see democracy. It is intangible, a rulebook we have agreed to which says that no-one shall be denied opportunity, freedom of speech, or the due process of the laws. The Constitution does not say that "all men are equal"; it says we are all "created equal". This is the same thing I just said: we each have our shot. Some will come at it with more on the ball than others....
But the substantive corrupts the procedural, when the love of things corrupts the spirit of fairness. An old story tells of three men who share one eye by passing it back and forth among themselves. Democracy is a process for ensuring that each gets an equal session with the eye. Capitalism fosters a desire to keep the eye and not share it. A rulebook, as I have said elsewhere is an end in itself, not a means. It is intended, optimistically, to work for ever, not until we have reached a particular goal. The world does not come to an end when the nine billion names of God are uttered. Freedom of speech is not over when we have uttered a certain thing. Democracy as a rulebook is not intended to operate only until a particular individual or class has enough money."

It contends: "Democracy and capitalism are like a lion and a bull pulling a sled together"...and it ends with this:
"Capitalism is resting gently on the ground, atop the crushed shards of democracy."
Peace & Joy

Wow - we are so much on the same page!
Whenever I hear or read a "Statement" put out by the World Bank (a little like "God's Edict to the Masses" lol) I start to worry...what are they setting us up for now?
Last year they put out a statement warning us that global food shortages were coming...that is ominous, a truly ominous statement...because it signals to me that this is now their agenda...god help us all...

Huge global corporations like Monsanto have their stated aim as being the only source of SEEDS and FOOD for the world!

Just now I searched You Tube and found this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRugpPlpncE (GOVERNMENT CONTORL OF FOOD and FOOD CODEX)
This all means that it won't be long before Governments truly control who will live and who will die (if they don't already) and unless we wake up and take action in time, it will be too late to stop it.
Those who are already poor and underprivileged will be the first to suffer. How can we stop this? It is coming faster that you think.

Ok then...when do we start to change the world...I am ready lol
But I need to know something first...what do you think of The World Bank?
