The man who forced the government of Iceland to resign and kicked out the IMF representatives from his country, Hordur Torfarson, is now teaching meta-modern democracy throughout Europe.

The rest of the world would benefit from following the example set by Iceland: Arresting the corrupt bankers who are responsible for the current economic turmoil.

Too many people hold the idea that psychopaths are essentially killers or convicts.The general public hasn't been educated to see beyond the social stereotypes to understand that psychopaths can be entrepreneurs, politicians, CEOs and other successful individuals who may never see the inside of a prison.

The difference between bankers and the mafia is becoming increasingly indistinguishable.

Mastering others is strength,mastering yourself makes you fearless

Control Your Money or Your Money Will Control You ... Change your attitude toward debt.

Every time you use credit for a purchase think ... Debt is slavery; I am making myself a slave.

Manipulators rarely advise you to seek new and diverse information or to 'learn and research for yourself,' it tends to be safer for exploitative and irresponsible leaders to keep their citizens in the dark; in their view less independent thought is better. Independent thought leads to an inquiring mind, a mindset that eventually leads to the questioning of authority figures, and that is the one thing that inadequate leaders do not want.

The message of George Orwell is clear. It happened in Nazi Germany it can happen again today. The politics has changed a bit but human nature has not. The battle is over but the real war for freedom and dignity is still being fought. You know the signs to look for: Unquestioning Obedience to an 'enlightened' leader, Conformity to a great national 'cause', Loyalty to the 'fatherland', Rebirth of a 'Great Unified Europe' or any other ancient 'Great' civilization, and Death Without Mercy to Artists, ******, Intellectuals, Jews, Non-conformists and all the Sick, Weak, Corrupt, Disabled and Inferior Peoples undermining the 'Glorious Accomplishments' of our advanced civilization. Be honest, so much of this rhetoric lies just below the level of consciousness in our politics today that it won't take much to reignite the fire. Try reading '1984'. Anyone who thinks it is 29 years past it's use-by date never understood it to begin with.
