As life goes on, I’ve been dealing lately with several task on my queue.. however, I’ve manage to get 15 pages on my “book”... and here is the main idea.
The book tentative name is “The imperative of globalization and the ideal of universalism”... and one idea is around the title of this post. Equilibrium
If you think about it, nature always looks for equilibrium. Every system, specially when seen at global scale, is after all, a living prof of Newtons law...
forces at equilibrium.
But we, humans, deny it existence as it is imperative that current status quo prevails at any cost.
Capitalism and Communism at the same time.
On the biosphere, which is in simple words, the “layer” of our planet that sustain life; the current bigest animal is the whale.
And the biggest whale feed of krill... the smallest sea animal (mind that bacteria are not animals or plants according to taxonomy); ironic.
This interdependency on what we know as biosphere is critical to understand my point, If I where a whale.. I'll pretty much want krill to prosper so I could ensure my future source of food. Now, let’s take that same idea and extrapolate it to our global economy...
does the whale (banks) at the moment are looking for your survival?
Funny enough it is that 2008 crisis is not the fist time US government (and by default, the rest of the world as the US dollar is the current global currency where all governments save their reserves) bail out the banks. I’ve learn this is the third time!
And as soon as the US government bail out the banks; by definition they become “public property” as the US government, using USA state resources (aka people’s money) is the current owner of the whole financial paradigm... I don’t know you, but that sounds like banks are not “private entities” anymore..
in other words, those are state owned enterprises... that is textbook communism (socially owned means of production)
It is fairly spread that bankers, insurance companies and others financial community related CEO’s pay themselves big bonuses checks AFTER the bailout... and that the Federal Reserve did gave them more money than what they report...
