  •  Neo-Feudalism? (12+ / 0-)

    We already have that.  I think where the loss of hope comes in is thinking the system can still be used to save itself.  We need to realize how little our system really differs from what caused rebellion throughout the Arab world and begin organizing and implementing any and all forms of civil disobedience with the aim of bringing down this corrupt, evil regime.

    •  Follow path of Iceland. Bankers jailed = reset. (4+ / 0-)
      •  Not what happened in Iceland. (0+ / 0-)

        Only the people who committed outright, Enron-style went to jail.  The overwhelming majority of the people who caused this mess are still quite free.  And there's anything but "reset" - in fact, the political party which resigned over the deregulation spree that made it possible is winning in the polls.

          5 Top Bank Execs Arrested in European Bank Fraud

          While many search the web for evidence of the arrests of members of the criminal cabal, one such story has surely broken through the cabal imposed media blackout.

          Three of Ireland's leading bank executives, former Anglo-Irish Bank chief Sean Fitzpatrick, ex-Finance Director Willie McAteer, and managing director for Ireland Pat Whelan were arrested on Tuesday, 7/24/12, for their crimes that led to Ireland's largest ever bank failure.

          Three others, who happen to be among Ireland's wealthiest residents, were also implicated for their roles in these crimes.

          In other news, former International Monetary Fund and Bankia chief Rodrigo Rato was arrested on 7/6/12 and charged with criminal fraud for his role in the bankruptcy of Bankia, Spain's 3rd largest banking institution, which is at the center of the country's economic crash and occupy movement which was motivated, in part, after Bankia, which was only in business less than two years, received a bailout from taxpayers of over 19 Billion Euros.

          On the Asian front, the elder brother of South Korean president Lee Myung-Buk has been arrested on corruption charges, leading to a possible regime change as elections for the country are later this year.
