Reykjavík Rising

“Only when the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize that wealth is not in bank accounts and that you can not eat money.”

attributed to Alanis Obomsawin, 1972

Interesting point of view on the Matrix Trilogy that explains a few things from a different perspective and in a little more detail.

History and War

“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.”

(attributed to Haile Selassie I)

“Moor your craft higher up than the enemy, and facing the sun. Do not move up-stream to meet the enemy. So much for river warfare.”

(Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, 9.6: The Army and the March.)

Protest Based Stimulus

Although I’m only directly influenced by the US of A’s foreign policy, the US of A’s internal politics mean nothing to me. However, the following program was so inspirational that I almost wanted to tweet about it.

On the Existence of Hell

“I knew hell did not exist.
I knew heaven did but I always said that this was hell.
And we even had a joke,
‘If you don’t believe that this is hell,
turn on CNN (you know) or Fox News – you’ll get proof right there.
You’re in hell!'”

(Smith, Tory)

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.”

(Blake, William)

Debt

CREAM; Cash Ruins Everything Around Me.

It’s great to see Nick Leeson, a banker that was almost singlehandedly responsible for the fall of Barings Investment Bank while he was living in Singapore in the mid-1990s, talk about “More control, […] and regulation”. Anyway whether you agree with big banking or not he explains that they need more quality regulators to sort out what the financial traders are cooking up in terms of financial instruments. These financial instruments work within the bounds (or grey areas) of the laws and regulations whilst earning the traders large profits. I guess if the financial sector would want to regain the confidence of the general public; financial managers should be held publicly accountable for the losses they have caused the general public and through transparency the public should be informed about what kind of constructions should be avoided in the future.
