Have you wondered why politicians aren't what they used to be, why governments seem unable to solve real problems? Economist Yanis Varoufakis, the former Minister of Finance for Greece, says that it's because you can be in politics today but not be in power — because real power now belongs to those who control the economy. He believes that the mega-rich and corporations are cannibalizing the political sphere, causing financial crisis. In this tal...

I will watch later, it looks interesting.  For now - agreed,  true (not oligopolist) democracy and basic regulation to assure a level playing field are essential to making capitalism work as Adam Smith's ideal "enlightened self interest" model.  Otherwise the sociopaths will take over both the democracy and the economy.

I realized some time ago that the whole idea of "Checks and Balances" in the US Constitution were defined to allow the society to make use of the sociopathic power broker types, while preventing any of them from taking over all the reins of power.  (Sociopaths and psychopaths make good executives, surgeons, and generals, but must be prevented from achieving complete power.)

#Turkey's failed coup exposed two things about Western governments and media:

- As long as interests are being fulfilled, it does not matter if it's democracy or dictatorship

Someone created this meme so apt:

#coup #democracy

What goes around comes around

After 9/11 Western World used to laugh at Muslims on their conspiracy theories that 9/11 is an Inside Job.

Now I see that big media sources like Guardian, AFP and Reuters and some little kids coming up with their own conspiracy theories that Turkish coup was an inside job.

Guess it's our turn to laugh at them.

A lesson for US and other Western Governments:
