The Chicken Littles who insist that our economy is already doomed fail to consider that humans are essentially creative and can be moved to cooperate with each other without a lot of coaxing.
Cooperation will be one key to keeping the old parasitic corporate families from trashing the global economy. Another key is the Chinese gov’t’s compulsion to keep a billion Chinese from becoming discontent, which means they have to keep growing the economy and enabling generally increasing prosperity there. The process of growing prosperity also grows world peace and even unity.
Even though the bloated, oppressive parasites at the top levels of General Motors stand to lose everything but the gold they probably stashed away the company, itself, could easily be changed to produce free energy engines and suitable cars in short notice, the way they changed to produce tanks and military vehicles right before WWII.
If the employees were given ownership of all the major corporations our heads would spin at how fast solutions and creative interactions between the corporations would emerge. As the corporate families continue to disintegrate and as their global genocide and desertification agendae continue to be undermined the creative forces within humanity will continue to be unleashed. The fact that the What To Think Network and academia won’t mention any of this shouldn’t ever dilscourage you from participating in the process
Remember that gifting is only one aspect of this enormous push toward the maturity of our species.
I really think the key to the next level of manufacturing is in China, though, where nanotech and robotics are evidently already in place, judging from the way ‘cheap Chinese carajo’ shows up everywhere. If you look at some of the electronic stuff carefully you’ll see the evidence.
For decades the Chinese gov’t have successfully disguised this but a visit to RadioShack will help you uncover the secret
Russia is also capable of producing extremely good quality stuff inexpensively. It’s really not all about slave wages, as the What To Think Network would have you believe. People don’t make good stuff when they’re only earning slave wages, any more than the FBI and CIA are gettting ‘information’ by torturing thousands of innocents and patriots to death in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.
Remember when Japan was annoyingly sending ‘cheap mass produced $#!+’ to America and Europe in the 1950s? I do. When do you reckon the Japanese stuff turned out to be superior to ours and the Japanese achieved a good standard of living? It happened without any fanfare, in fact, as it’s also happening in China, a little more gradually. I think the mainland Chinese might outstrip the Taiwanese this way, before long.
The disinformants want us to believe that the ‘world order’ is going to reduce Americans to the economic level of the average Chinese. What’s really happening, obviously, is that the entire world is moving toward universal prosperity. The AlGores and all the other nauseating, corporate/academic/media mavens of doom and destruction are failing to keep this simple truth covered up.
The real news is never in the headlines or on the front pages, after all. ‘Alternative’ stuff is usually ennervating disinformation, too. It’s not hard to find the good news but one has to be a little bit detached and watchful.
