Individual vs collective salvation

Sa nu stati "ca sardina in metrou" niciodata, da? Mai ales in urmatoarele cateva luni.

Salvarile sunt intotdeauna individuale pe cand dezastrele sunt intotdeauna colective. Bine cu forta nu se poate. Intai trebuie sa-ti dai seama (singur) ca trebuie sa te salvezi.

E un motiv pentru care Omul este cel mai mare pradator de pe Pamant!

Other People's Money speech by Danny DeVito.

Other People's Money  - Milton Friedman (sau varianta mai lunga aici).

FMI nu va mai da bani României (link), bancile nu mai finanteaza deficite, BNR-ul se imprumuta extern aproape nesemnificativ si la dobanzi uriase. Urmeaza Falimentele.

Remember, remember, the 5'th of November

"Remember, remember, the 5'th of November
The gunpowder treason and plot
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot"

18 Septembrie 2008 - 5 Noiembrie 2010

The military brass received a huge boost from President Medvedev after he hinted in an interview last week that Russia may have to prepare for.another world war.

"..truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror."

12 oct 2010: The North Korean government smuggled six nuclear weapons into Japan to use as blackmail against the Japanese government, according to a senior Japanese public security police source. Five of the bombs have been seized by Japanese authorities but the sixth is located in the basement of the headquarters of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chosen Soren) and police have been warned it will be set off if they try to seize it. The discovery of the bombs by Japanese authorities confirms the original warning about the North Korean plot to attack with Japan that from a KGB agent who claimed to report directly to Russian Prime Minister Putin. The nuclear blackmail is linked to a failed Federal Reserve Board crime syndicate plot to start World War 3 on the Korean peninsula in a bid to stave off bankruptcy.

The first shots of WW3 have begun, the FED is in a fight for its life. The FED is BK; do not think otherwise, it is going to be extreme going forward from here! The fight has begun and the FED will somehow start a war to eliminate the EU and the IMF...based in where; Europe. The IMF is out to destroy the FED Banks! I will say again; by 2016 most of Europe will be empty...
Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of the everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration - whereby those important events of the past, usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday - I thought we could mark this November the fifth, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat.

There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now orders are being shouted into telephones and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning and for those who will listen, the enunciation of Truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there?

Cruelty and injustice...intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance, coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, Truth be told...if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War. Terror. Disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you and in your panic, you turned to the now High Chancellor Adam Sutler. He promised you order. He promised you peace. And all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

Last night, I sought to end that silence. Last night, I destroyed the Old Bailey to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago, a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice and freedom are more than words - they are perspectives. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you, then I would suggest that you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek...then I ask you to stand beside me, one year from tonight, outside the gates of Parliament. And together, we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever, be forgot!
