Minority rules: Scientists discover tipping point for the spread of ideas
Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society. The scientists, who are members of the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) at Rensselaer, used computational and analytical methods to discover the tipping point where a minority belief becomes the majority opinion. The finding has implications for the study and influence of societal interactions ranging from the spread of innovations to the movement of political ideals. CLICK HERE for more
What this means is we only need 10% of the population to understand how these few individuals are robbing us and enslaving us to transform the narrative society believes in, to stop them.
While some of my friends and people observing the current issues have complained of extreme negativity in the news, I can present this man's speech as a definitely positive step in the right direction towards making our world a better place.
Also a lot has been said about the bankruptcy of the studies of Economics, but Varoufakis offers a good reason to support it, as long as it is well applied. Another remarkable Economist who has exerted his knowledge to good use, is Ecuador President Rafael Correa who insists people are more important than capital, and his policies have shown in a short few years, we can have a socialist economy using markets to generate wealth and allocate resources in the right areas of the economy efficiently, rewarding the voters with a more secure and predictable economy than any neo-liberal policies have ever produced.
I believe it will be the example of small countries like Ecuador and Greece where the world will be able to see in practice what they can do in their own countries. Both Ecuador and Greece lack the use of their own currencies. Ecuador is using the US dollar & Greece is using the Euro controlled and applied by a cabal of a private banksters' cartel who use debt as a mechanism of control over the "elected" politicians of the countries they prevail upon by converting these leaders from Public Servants, into their own private servants to promote even greater control over the productivity of the Real Economy, to transfer part of its wealth to the vampire-like "financial sector".
It is impossible not to emphasize the critical importance for the well being of our civilization, as stated by Varoufakis, to make the right decisions regarding this critical moment in our species survival. History has shown empires have a hard time in the process of being demised, especially when it happens out of its own inherent contradictions, as it happened to the Soviet Union. It has taken Russia to adjust more than 20 years while adopting a new capitalist system to them, that was well established around the world. Therefore the adaptation that the world will have to go through during this transition to a new economy where efficiency is actually enhanced, and people's well being also is improved, and the value they offer in their labor and human capital is not any more being curtailed by a small group of banksters who use the medium of exchange (money) as a form of control of their economic activities to benefit them in detriment of the productive majority, could plunge the world into a long depression if we don't watch it.
This is why it is imperative we pay close attention to our responsibility as members of the unique generation of "baby boomers" to leave a planet in better shape than we found it, but so far we are failing miserably in that regard. We are leaving a world much more polluted and depleted of natural resources than we found it, to our children's generations who will ask "why"?
If at least we provided them with a new narrative that offers understanding and a way out to solve the mess we left them, it will go a long way to vindicate our poor performance.
THE GLOBAL MINOTAUR: America, Europe and the Future of the Global Economy
Varoufakis presentation of his book "The Global Minotaur" is brilliant, exposing the fallacy of having economies that evolve according to the "free markets". He even compares this "capitalist central control" as similar to the Soviets' 5 year plans and the Japanese tight control by a central authority. Once the West learned to manipulate voter's minds using Media to sell products, it was easy to use it to sell ideas and politicians. Paul Volcker happened to be a key figure on how the US capitalism evolved from a surplus generator of capital, to a vampire-like consumer of other countries' surpluses using Wall Street as the instrument to "recycle" the profits to benefit the US.
This is how we have come to the current position of the US able to purchase other people's products, while the Private US Central Bank (the FED) creates the trillions of dollars to purchase them by merely punching keys in a computer to generate digital dollars. This is the quantitative easing BS of Q1, Q2 and Q3 that the FED offers to benefit its private banksters' members while hanging the debt from the necks of the US taxpayer.
The Real Economy again, being sucked dry by unproductive financial games manipulated by the bankster crooks. When are people going to finally wake up from their ignorance?
Western "democracy" is as fake as the ability of specialized psychologists can manipulate voters' minds succesfully in "selling" a political candidate as they can entice people to buy any trinkets.
The reason why the behavior of the "Troika" appears confusing, is because there is a semi-hidden power center of Private Financiers that form a Financial Cartel CABAL of families that use debt as the weapon to enforce their power over all the politicians of the planet, turning them from "elected" Public Servants, into the CABAL'S private servants. This is the reason the Troika's actions appear to be so out of place and nonsensical. They are not designed to "save" anyone but to enrich banksters while extracting even more wealth from German and Greek taxpayers. If we "follow the money" it takes us to who is manipulating these payments to their benefit.
