On the eve of USA's November 2008 national election, an urgent proposal for an unsecured $700-Billion, maybe $800-Billion loan to mismanaged banks and stockbrokers was generating understandable controversy. In its initial form the Bush Buddies Bailout was one more Weapon of Mass Deception, a (later, a two-step) public welfare program for wealthy people who game the system. But the problem remains.

What, exactly, went - and continues to go - wrong? What ARE reasonable goals, what are NOT, and how might a more populist government reach good ones?

Jill and I searched, asked friends, and found part of the discussion in the mainline U.S. Press. It is dominated by large corporations, and is quickly becoming a large corporation that reports with bias and too-often avoids reporting. We find the parts they don't want us to find - overseas, and in the Alternative Press. Some favorites are: Alternet, Campaign for America's Future, Common Dreams, Democracy Now, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, Mother Jones, The Nation, Nation of Change, The Raw Story, TruthOut, and Russ Baker's But we keep a sense of perspective; know which news is biased, and how.

The more we read, the more we realize that - as much as we want our money back - that is only one of many ways our country is becoming impoverished. Often by corporations, which most definitely are NOT people! (For one thing, these rapacious corporations have no shame.)

You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that, is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.
- Rahm Emanuel (Wall Street Journal Weekend Interview, Nov. 7, 2008)

Never waste the opportunities offered by a good crisis.
- Niccolo Machiavelli (Fifteenth Cent. 
Florentine writer and statesman)

Yes, as through this world I've wandered,
  I've seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
  And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
  Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won't never see an outlaw
  Drive a family from their home.

- Woody Guthrie, Dust Bowl Ballads

What is the robbing of a bank compared to the founding of a bank?

A List of Politicians Admitting That Money Controls Politics

It is not particularly easy for one to climb up out of the working-class--especially if he is handicapped by the possession of ideals and illusions.
- What Life Means to Me, by Jack London (1905)

... peace was not in the interest of a stable society, that even if lasting peace "could be achieved, it would almost certainly not be in the best interests of society to achieve it." War was a part of the economy. Therefore, it was necessary to conceive a state of war for a stable economy. The government, the group theorized, would not exist without war, and nation states existed in order to wage war. War served the vital function of diverting collective aggression. They recommended "credible substitutes" and paying a "blood price" to emulate the economic functions of war. Prospective government-devised alternatives to war included reports of alien life-forms, the reintroduction of a "euphemized form" of slavery "consistent with modern technology and political processes", and - one deemed particularly promising in gaining the attention of the malleable masses - the threat of "gross pollution of the environment".
- Wikipedia's summary of The Report From Iron Mountain (1967)

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.
- U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower (April 16, 1953)

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.
- John Adams, letter to Jonathan Jackson (2 October 1780), The Works of John Adams, vol 9, p.511.

I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless.
- President Abraham Lincoln (1864)

What is this you call property? It cannot be the earth. For the land is our mother, nourishing all her children, beasts, birds, fish, and all men. The woods, the streams, everything on it belongs to everybody and is for the use of all. How can one man say it belongs to him only?
- Massasoit

Only when the last tree has been cut down, only when the last river has been poisoned, only when the last fish has been caught, only then will you realize your money cannot be eaten.
- an old Cree saying? Maybe not; but good.

The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism.
- U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1938

Train communities through all their grades, beginning with individuals and ending there again, to rule themselves.
Walt Whitman

This planet has -- or rather had -- a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
- Douglas Adams, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (1979)

While surveys indicate the mental distress that triggers suicide is similar in all [U.S.] states, the suicide rates vary dramatically. The primary driver of this? The state's gun ownership rate. States with high rates of gun ownership average nearly seven times the suicide rate as those with low gun ownership, while non-gun suicides show no real pattern among the states. This trend has been identified in 20 different independent studies. Overall, the risk of death through suicide is estimated to be three times higher if there's a gun in the house."

4chan: The Skeleton Key to the Rise of Trump. Trump’s younger supporters know he’s an incompetent joke; in fact, that’s why they support him, by Dale Beran (Medium, February 14, 2017)
"We know, by this point, that Trump is funny. Even to us leftists, horrified by his every move, he is hilarious. Someone who is all brash confidence and then outrageously incompetent at everything he does is  -  from an objective standpoint  -  comedy gold. Someone who accuses his enemies of the faults he at that very moment is portraying is comedy gold. But, strangely, as the left realized after the election, pointing out Trump was a joke was not helpful. In fact, Trump's farcical nature didn’t seem to be a liability; rather, to his supporters, it was an asset."

And federal agencies are aware of those dangers.

The Next President's Inaugural Speech (If Only!) (Brent Blackwater, Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy; September 5, 2012)
And Dick Miller comments:
Right on!

Well, almost right on.

1. There is a need to clearly separate "steady-state economy" from a continuation of the current world population level. They are mutually incompatible. A steady-state economy for 2- to 3-billion people probably is sustainable, but even that range becomes optimistic with our continuing depletion of resources (including our oceans and atmosphere).

2. The proposed move to a four-day work week misses an important point. Instead of a four-day, 7.5-hour-day work week, aim for my Miller Work Week, or  Miller Time-Share Solution: Two work shifts, each with a three-day, 10-hour-day work week. In addition to the identical redistribution of gainful employment, the three-day solution removes rush-hour traffic jams, removes downtown parking problems, can free up great amounts of building space for more useful functions, and will free up one-third more economy-boosting time (two-thirds more, compared with now) for one's personal life! Only our failing economic system stands in the way of this efficiency.

3. Then, when possible, reduce that work week further. Modern technology's continuous increase in efficiency should decrease the number of working hours per day required to sustain a person. Sadly, for many recent decades this increased efficiency only benefited the rich - worse, it harms those who are unemployed, while many others work overtime and in poor conditions to avoid the new efficiency that we distort into "Unemployment". Again, only our failing economic system stands in the way of more equitable distribution of these fruits of efficiency. And no, this correction does not require Communism; the last person to make a big change in this direction was Henry Ford.

Cheers from
--Dick Miller

"This country does in fact have a serious deficit problem, but the reality is that the deficit was caused by two wars - unpaid for. It was caused by huge tax breaks for the wealthiest people in the country. It was caused by a recession as a result of the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on Wall Street. And if those are the causes of the deficit, I will be damned if we're going to balance the budget on the backs of the elderly, the sick, the children, and the poor. That's wrong.".

The reapportionment of risk and responsibility through regulatory intervention embodies that wisdom in action.
