You'd put money on it?  Wow.  I hope you're right. 

Thomas - thank you again so much for providing us with all this info - it's invaluable information.

Q re. "The banks really really were bailed out.  Really."

Just to clarify, is it being accepted that the banks have already paid back the total $7.7 trillion!? Cos that would be a pretty mean feat right?

An article on OWS by a colleague at JFKU.

Do folks here use a credit union rather than a bank?  I've long been contemplating a switch (my mother was actually urging me to do this several years ago), and I am thinking the time is now well overdue.

Yes, after the '08 crises I moved my $ into a local credit union. It's FDIC insured up to 100k per account like any bank, so it seems the money is protected. But then again, I don't understand what Tom is talking about so who knows? And I guess if the economy completely collapses then so much for any insurance.

This makes me very angry.

You can say that again. I don't know what country I'm living in any more.

I've been looking forward to getting this book.  I really liked his previous book, The Empathic Civilization.  We have a thread dedicated to Rifkin here, if you'd like to talk about the new book there.

Looks like Otto Scharmer has a new book forthcoming which is relevant to some of the themes in this thread.

Cool piece of news on Germany's progressive energy initiatives.

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
