Capitalism based on some degree of moral regulation is indeed the hope of Humanity. But we will need a new Ethos in Enterprise, Engineering, and Education to help solve global Energy-Economy-Environment challenges.
This new Ethos must bind-down, once again, by Constitutional Law, the avarice and larceny of "opulent minorities", once again preferring the rigged market cartel capitalism reminiscent of the East India Company drug-pushing, slave exploiting, and arms-running enterprise of corrupt capitalism with Crown approval.
The secret society Skull and Bones Judge fraud, of Corporate Personhood, in1886, by Morrison R Waite, with John Chandler Bankcroft Davis, must be rescinded. It is the dark secret of 125 years, preserved from children's, students and citizens knowledge, that allowed crony cartel syndicate capitalism to move further and further towards the corrupt synthetic derivatives of real capitalism that have now metastasised into the financial rigged markets by fraud, now plundering real wealth generation capacities of economies and ecologies,
All luminaries who have not or will not talk to the fraud of Corporate Personhood, over 125 years, are either ill-informed, morally or intellectually compromised, or disingenuous double-thinkers.
I admire Richard Branson immensely in many ways,
But until he talks, or any corporate luminaries talk about the legal fiction fraud of Corporate Personhood with some cogency, all the other plaudits for Capitalism saving Civilization or the ecosystems on which we depend ring slightly hollow.
Civilization will not be saved by super amplified synthetic derivatives of usury, and by quasi-legal cartels of government licenced global technocratic mercantilism, underwritten by cunning legal stealth and philosophical fallacies like Corporate Personhood.
I would rather think the mafia would do a better job, since they would be more honest.
But as Trilateralist Doctor Zbigniew Brzezinski suggested, there is a "global awakening" of the Many as to political inequity. This includes the global awakening to "gold-collar crime" of quasi legal elite criminal syndicates operating from Wall Street and the City of London, and their associates. More and more people know globalized super corporate rigged market capitalism is corrupted well beyond its ability to "save the planet".
The corrupted population of super Corporate Person corporations, and their Ecological Footprints, far outweighs problems of real person "Overpopulation" or over consumption per capita.
Next time you hear a super rich corporate luminary talk about OverPopulation, ask them if you can, how many Corporate Persons must be eliminated for the carrying capacity of the planet.
To save Civilization from corrupted rigged market capitalism, and the ecosystems from corrupted Civilization, young people around the planet need an Open Source Discourse on the grand challenges of Civilization, where all conversations must start around the issues of Net Energy, which underlines success of all entities on the Earth, and Corporate Personhood.
Without this Civilized Humanity is doomed to dangerous corporatized self-delusions, as national economies accelerate to Energy-Economy-Environment meltdowns from Fukushima and Deepwater, to PIIIGS economies collapse contagion, and vast financial corruption in Militiary Industrial Complex corporate cartel wars under false prospectus.
Corporate deception will not save the planet or Civilization from corporate deception.
Capitalism is rotten to the core from the top down. It can be made healthy. It is vital to the successful transition of Civilization to EcoCivilization - Civilization 2.0 not based on centrist, apex down. command and control, with Noble Lie Machiavellian deception.
Civilization is in deep crisis and super corrupted rigged market capitalism cannot help, even with some glorious new global Marshall Plan, because the vital funds will be pillaged for privatized greed of increasingly pathological super self-obsessed power-addicted hedonists.
A global awakening of the Many is starting to see this clearer and clearer as the Hole In The Wall Street Gang pillages billions and billions by Highspeed Algorithmic Looting (HAL) accelerating our civilizations rapidly towards Energy-Economy-Environment systems collapse.
Richard Branson, would do well for the planet, by funding global students to engage in a "GLOBAL STUDENT" magazine dedicated to Open Source Discourse on the shared challenges of Civilization and Humanity via a trust, allowing honest debate, discussion, analysis, brainstorming, think-tanking, innovation and solution blue-printing, unmediated by Big Corporation, Big Government, Big Politics, Big Religion or Big Cult personalities,
Only a global informed public can save Civilization now.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.
