On the one hand globalism driven by the largest companies in league with politicians headed to and from seats on the boards of the biggest companies. On the other hand a quiet rebellion by those on Main Street against the forces of centralization that bring us mass media, punditry, spectacle, the mortgage mess, and a constant parade of whopping liars blaming liberals, terrorists, or anything but themselves for the decline of our civil society, our democracy, and the health of our air, water, and food supply. Here from the Greens a new website on bringing money home to Main Street and so starving the forces of centralization, whether corporate or governmental. Here linked to from the Green site, Catherine Austin Fitts on "Where would Jesus Bank," How to Find a Local Bank that Matches Your Values, and The US Banking Tapeworm. What is new here is the coalescence of the Libertarians and the Greens. What we call Democrats are part of the Centralization Party, the moderate wing. Those of us who want to live simply, have family values built on love not hate, on reason not religious fanaticism, and who value community over brands, and who demand a return to a constitutional republic are turning away from both parties in power and their corporate cronies. To vote against the duopoly in power you have to get local with your money and your political engagement. As to philanthropy, we shall see whether Ford, Soros, Annie Casey et. al. wake up or whether they remain fat, dumb, and decorous as we slide into a corporate security state, via disaster capitalism. As for me, the heck with it. The doctor says the new meds should improve my positive mental attitude and if not, a little shock therapy should do the trick. Millions of marketized Americans can't be wrong. Might as well join them.
