I agree Keith. It won't be until there are revolts against the governments, through mass demonstrations which will most likely lead to violence and all out rioting, that politicians will stop acting for corporate interests and actually represent the people that they were elected by. At least for a while.
All you hear on the news are measures that the government needs to take, in the form of service cuts and increased taxation of the public. You don't hear a single MP standing up and actually highlighting and denoucing the corruption of the banking system to which we are all in servitude to, whether we realise it or not.
The closest thing has been Vince Cable complaining about the banker bonuses, as them handing themselves billions in bonuses is rubbing the public's nose in it just a little too much and is causing heat for the government.
It makes me laugh when I hear the talking heads say "the government is introducing plans to create 1000 jobs" or "is injecting millions of pounds of government money to kick start the economy". Its a complete misnoma. There is no such thing as "government money". Only taxpayers money but, the former is a term coined by the media which only disassociates the viewer from that fact.
Jobs created by the government consume wealth. That money has to come from the private sector and kills jobs off as a result. It is only by lessening the burdens on the private sector, that businesses can grow, employ people and generate wealth. We now have 20% VAT AND increases in income tax and national insurance. That is the exact opposite of what should be happening and is another nail in the British economies coffin!
What we are seeing now is a return to serfdom, albeit it a high tech one. The private sector is shedding jobs left, right and centre and those left employed are being forced to undertake the roles that their colleagues had performed. If you don't like it, there are 10 people ready to take your place because they are desperate for a job.
I too am not a lover of violence but all of this is just history repeating. The power hungry push the masses that bit too hard. Eventually the oppressed have nothing to lose and push back. As Thomas Jefferson once said "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
However, I think there does need to be a revolution, not a violent one but more of a mass awakening and understanding of what is happening in the world. Fractional reserve banking cannot remain the linchpin of the worlds economies. Creating money out of thin air, backed by nothing but the money already created out of thin air will only lead down the path that every other fiat paper currency trodden before it - hyperstagflation and economic collapse.
