The Market Page
Market is a metaphor for a mark or a line where a price is set.
It is not higher than this
It is not lower than this.
It is exactly this amount.
If you measure something, you make a mark.
It is like a border or a boundary.
It is very upmarket.
It is a little more downmarket.
We are out.
It is not available.
There is no market for it.

The Failure of the Market
The market does not work.
The market can be manipulated by wealthy financial players.
The market is manipulated by wealthy financial players.
How can we solve the problem?
Possible Solutions to the Problem
1. Bring in general reforms.
This takers a long time and is not effective.
2. Target the problem, which is corrupt administration.
Identify the corrupt banking interests which manipulate the financial system and arrest them. Make a new central bank.
Give the government the power to print money.
Take the power to print money away from the private bank.
Take the power to print money away from the central bank which is a private bank!
Target the problem.
Look at it close up.
We have to break the connection between government and the central bank. We have to end control of our political system by an economic system which is manipulated by wealthy bankers!
We have to reform the financial system.
We have to restore sovereignty.

The Philosophy of the Market
The market is manipulated by the intelligent.
This brings us to the philosophical question.
Do you exploit the weak and stupid or share with them and teach them to be intelligent?
We humans are a family and our family quality and our identity goes beyond our individual self.
None of us was born alone and though many of us die alone, we live among our brothers and sisters.
To exploit the weak or manipulate them is the action of ignorant medieval (middle-aged) priests or savage undignified animals. It is the work of fear and violence. It is not the work of love and light. It is not a worthwhile job.
Making a Point
We are taught that there is not enough to go around.
We are taught that we must exclude ourselves from others.
We are taught that we must look after our own.
We are taught that we must make hard decisions so that we survive but others must perish.
Re-iterating a Point
This is what we are taught.
This is how we are taught.
This is how we are taught in terms of the underlying methodology beneath all of our scientific and academic disciplines.
The truth is that we can control our desires. We can observe them and watch them pass. We can simplify our lives and limit our effect on the natural environment and on each other. We can use alternative secret hidden technologies and co-operate to build a world which is a divine paradise in physical reality.
That is possible.
That is what we can do.
“Can” and “Should”
That is what we should do.
That is what we can do.
