Actually a question, if I may. Would it make sense to, instead of bailing out companies that have already proven their inability either to plan, or manage, their futures, with billions of $$, divide the billions by the number of citizens and disperse the money to them, thereby determining which companies we-the-people want to support by how we spend those $$?

Interesting thought.

Economic and Political Reorganization

Economic and Political Reorganization

As Socialism/Communism and Capitalism are terms that address the way that economies are organized, I believe that too much emphasis is placed on political organization and not anywhere near enough on economic reorganization.

Agriculture and Food Issues

Agriculture and Food Issues

Hi Folks,

Since being the catalyst and one of the principal organizers of a four day conference, "Towards Self-Sufficiency", on local, regional and world food issues in 1976 (in the Amherst, MA area), I have had an interest in what you are now calling "food security".

Demand Side Management/Supply Side Reallocation, Neighborhood Redevelopment and Transportation Planning

Demand Side Management, Neighborhood Redevelopment, and Transportation Planning

I would like to address the supply side scenario for energy production based on assumptions of economic growth requiring an increase in the use of energy.

More About Equity Union(s)

In a not-for profit Equity Union financial services system based on principles of mutuality working in concert with ethical, wise, knowledgeable, and intelligent community, inter-community, inter-regional, and worldwide planning would serve the needs of the people.

Financial Systems and Property Ownership Reform

Reforming Financial Systems

With respect to the "nature of wealth", I think that the "quality of life" paradigm in lieu of the "standard of living" paradigm needs to be stressed.

"Quality of life" includes personal happiness for self, family, friends, neighbors, and all others. It includes ownership opportunities for all and everybuddy having the things they need, including health, healthy and loving relations with family, friends, neighbors, and all the people of the world. It includes peace on earth, and it includes a future for all the children of the world.

What's Going On? Let's Bring Some Understanding,,,

You may be surprised at how many, who are Capitalists, or concur with the apparent success of Capitalism, especially in the USA (I argue that it had more to do with technological "Western Civilization" raping a virgin landscape), would identify with the heritage and tenets of the "Labor Movement" and those of socialism, if the argument is presented to the audience correctly.

Oil Junkies by Mike Morin

What’s the matter with me
I’ve got too much to say
I used to be out there yellin’ at the top of my lungs
and no one was listenin’, anyway
Think I’ll go down by the river, by the highway
Via the busy streets
Where the cars and trucks are rollin’ fast
And say, “do you know how much noise you make
And that we’re runnin’ out of gas”?

Because we’re
Oil junkies, oil junkies
Waitin’ for our next oil change
Yes we’re a thirty weight wonder
Slowly goin’ under
I think it’s time we rearrange

Well, those drillin’ men
Blackening their and our seas and lands

Let's Work Together (Barely Updated)

Together we’ll stand
Divided we’ll fall
Come on now people
Let’s get on the ball

And work together
Come on, come on
Let’s work together
Because together we’ll stand
Every boy, girl, woman, and man

People, when things go wrong
And they sometimes will
And the road you travel
All seems uphill

Let’s work together
Come on, come on
Let’s work together
Because together we’ll stand
Every boy, girl, woman, and man

Oh well, now, billions of lives
six or ten hours
it really does matter
in this life of ours

Let’s work together
Come on, come on

Everywhere Man (adapted from John Lennon's "Nowhere Man" by Mohandos Lenino)

We are real everywhere men
Workin’ in our everywhere lands
Making all our everywhere plans for everybuddy

We all have our point of view
But people where are we going to
Everywhere men ain’t we a bit like me and you

Everywhere men don’t worry
Give your love don’t scurry
Everywhere men the world needs your helping hands

We are real everywhere men
Working in our everywhere lands
Making all our everywhere plans for everybuddy

We all have our point of view
But where’s the childrens’ world going to
Everywhere men ain’t they a bit like me and you

Everywhere men don’t worry

Imagine (Slightly Updated)

Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try
Only potential hell on earth
around us only sky

Imagine all the people
living for the children, uh-huh

Imagine there's no countries, it isn't hard to do
Imagine nothing to kill or die for
(k)no(w) religions too

Imagine all the people, living life in peace, you-u

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
and the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions, I wonder if they can
No need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man

Get Together (Updated)

Get Together
(updated by Mike Morin)

Love is more than a song we sing
Fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Make the people cry
Though the doves are on the wing
You may all know why

Come on people, now
Smile on your brother
Everybuddy get together
Try to love one another, right now

All will come and all will go
Our lives will surely end
In our lives the light of love
Is for us to send
We are just a lifetime’s sunlight
With the love of earth and men

Come on people, now
Smile on your brother
Everybuddy get together
