Wow. Our experiment is off to a great start—let's see if we can finish it off sooner than expected.
Watching the world slide slowly back into recession without a fight, even though we know perfectly well how to prevent it, is just depressing beyond words. Our descendents will view the grasping politicians and cowardly bankers responsible for this about as uncomprehendingly as we now view the world leaders who cavalierly allowed World War I to unfold even though they could have stopped it at any time.
That is all. I just wanted to get this off my chest yet again.
