  •  Nobody Runs the Money Machine (3+ / 0-)

    Finance is the way that we disconnect people from consequences for their actions (until they run out of money).

    The money machine is too big and complex for anyone to run it. It runs itself, except when it's occasionally corrected by really big money. It's like a weather system designed over generations to rain money on the same people.

    Which is one reason why it runs so badly for everyone else. And even occasionally for those for whom it runs well.

    Tragically, the money machine also runs the political machine - and every other machine, including the religious machine, the media machine, yadda yadda yadda.

    "I am that I am", the money machine says - and that's all that I am. Well blow me down...
