    Great PPT Robbie!.. without getting to much into the politics(as we did a bit yesterday) of raising a flag of any color, religion, party, country, etc.. and without escaping the fact that we live the illusion of an agreed and controlled System, – from the Philosophers’ mind+body+heart- I still believe that we need to keep raising questions, hold ourselves and we will find the truth which is within us, self awareness is the 1st step towards mankind enlightenment.. NO FEAR!

    FYI : have followed other Groups(as you all probably know) I came accross TED http://www.ted.com/talks/browse­ .. have a look at :http://www.ted.com/talks/james_…­
    Enjoy!

    Thanks Robert for ur pres. We do need to know about the subtle but pervasive power bases in our society. We also need to know that there are ways to change them. We’ve seen this in media/ knowledge/ entertainment sectors. E.g. We can move to Tier 2 banks with small o/s issued debt. We can also demand more of our pollies, perhaps by way of ‘system transparency’, or moving allegiances to other political parties. If we take good explanations and ideas that have social buy-in to the pollies, they have little power to resist it.
    If u went to ur boss and said, ‘our company has a problem’, u would be asked to go away, research the problem, costs & benefits of 3 best solutions, and come back to report in a simple 1-pager. I think that’s what we need to do when reporting problems with the financial system. Maybe just reporting the problem actually exacerbates it.
    Cheers,

    This presentation allowed for a good deal of interaction between attendees. I am glad that we had a chance to contrast different issues that are usually taken for granted in regards issues of fairness and reality. Despite truth being more a matter of believe as I explained in my introduction of the topic; there is a general perceived need to uncover the intrinsic dealings of world’s financial matters; and whether living in the shadows of the decision makers is holding human progress back. Thanks Robert for your presentation and the information that you shared with us.

    It was very interesting evening and I have truly enjoyed listening Roberts presentation and later discussion on this topic. Special thanks to Alec, Loeby, Michael , Liz , Petros, Bob and everyone else who participated in this discussion… We might disagree with each other opinions, but it is healthy to have a discussion and to spread and deepen awareness… Knowledge, information, critical thinking and actioning has no alternative if we want to move forward… Different angles and different perspectives on the same topic are very healthy seed for the future wellbeing and it is necessary for the humanity to progress… The enormous quantity of staged disinformation and shallownes in tabloid style media creates fear and ignorance, so the only way is to spread awareness and increase critical mass of population to think and not just to follow mainstream propaganda and beaten track which leads us all to abyss, if do not change the course…
    Be not afraid to think and to speak out !

    Robert, I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation, and look forward to reading your book! Our world is apparently full of complexities, and regardless of how things function on this scale, these considerations certainly add intrigue to our existence!
