Inside job

You need to see this

This Academy Award winning documentary film narrated by Matt Damon is really important. If you wish to understand the full extent of the financial crisis and the cynical lying bastards who created it, you must watch this film. It was made in 2010 but is just as relevant today. These people have escaped all consequences and continue to plunder your assets with ever increasing avarice and to set up the next crash.

Inside Job poster

‘Inside Job’ provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia. It was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.

If everyone in the Western world watched this film there would be bloody revolution.  My wife isn’t easily moved by the continual stream of information that I plague her with about the awful state of the world, unlike me, she’s a committed Christian and believes that man is incapable of ruling himself and that God will sort us out fairly soon. However, this academy award winning film stopped her in her tracks. She was stunned, astonished, outraged and profoundly depressed by it. Just as I was.

Maybe the deity should pull Her Divine Finger out.

How the Masters of the Universe betrayed us, how we paid, and how we’re still paying

Why are you and I are allowing this outrageous situation to continue? The perpetrators of the behaviour that brought the world’s economy to its knees have got away scot-free. You paid the price, they’re still doing it: stealing ever more of your money, your jobs and your homes. They’re wiping out your wealth by deliberately destroying your savings and our leaders are aiding and abetting them. in the USA, Mr “Yes we can” Obama appointed the Princes of the Thieves as his top economic advisers. They’re still there, they’re creaming ever more off the top, and you’re still paying. They’re liars and thieves and if they don’t agree with that assessment they’re welcome to test it in court.

This movie is mostly about the USA and Wall Street, but when Wall Street sneezes we all catch cold so it’s relevant to you wherever you live. Similar behaviour is going on in your country too, it just isn’t as obvious in most places because the numbers aren’t as astronomical. If you doubt the ubiquity of their larceny, ponder the later manifestation, the staggering monstosity of the LIBOR scandal.

Have you eaten enough cake?

The actions of our leaders and the 0.01% are no different to the actions of the French aristocracy which led them to the guillotine–it could be argued that they’re worse. No different to the blind stupidity of the Russian aristocracy which led to them being lined up and shot.

It’s time you made your voice heard

You have the power.
