This is the sort of honest-speaking that is lacking in the media (video below), but I bet that if the BBC had known what this trader, Alessio Rastani, was going to say they would not have interviewed him.
It’s just 3.29mins – do watch.
Greece probably defaulting soon, the Euro going down the pan…we’re headed for some financially challenging times (as if we aren’t already). Let’s hope the talk of a new financial system is not pie in the sky and is going to remove / alleviate these challenges created by the current system.
But more the point of this post was the honesty (however ‘money-based’) of this trader. Maybe live interviews are the way to inject truth through the media since what the interviewee is going to say can’t be controlled.
Interesting how he does mention the ‘Elite,’ and this line: “The governments don’t rule the world, Goldman Sachs rules the world.” Hear, hear. Soooo many people still believe in their governments as if the latter’s main concern is the interests of the common people. I saw a party political broadcast for the Labour party here in the UK yesterday, and it was a 10-min piece of celebrities including a football manager (Alex Ferguson no less) and an Apprentice (TV show) runner-up, amongst others, speaking oh so genuinely into the camera. Of course they were all saying how the country was and would be better with Labour. A bunch of celebrities putting forward some naive point of view? Give us a break! Tell it how it is and we’ll have more respect for your political party. A bit like the trader in this video, his honesty is to be respected whatever his standpoint is. That’s what’s missing in politics – raw honesty. If the credit card’s maxed out, then say it’s maxed out.
Take out one element from politics and from every area of society and thinking, including new age schools of thought – denial – and things shift quickly. But that’s a big ask, it seems.
At the end of the day, if any one political party has the answers we need, then why the possibility of this impending worldwide crash? Why the mess? Answer: No one party can have all the answers as this very thinking is part of the problem (the competitive ‘selling’ of one’s ideas and policies). Frankly, why do we need to always have some opposing party, for example? Why always be competitive? Why can’t folks agree? Rhetoric questions. Man, it’s tiring always having to make decisions about your finances, about who to vote for, about everyday self-preservation and survival challenges – politics is supposed to make life easier in these respects. 3D Reena is a tired bunny at present (especially with a heavy cold today – I hope you appreciate how much I love you guys as I’m typing away here in between coughing and spluttering lol!), as I know many feel too at this time. But that’s just 3D. It’s not the whole picture – thank heavens!!!
Nah, politics is all about money, self-preservation and looking good (hence the rolling out of celebrities). Anyone trying to change the system authentically from within it, is well-intentioned but deluded. We need radical changes of the whole System itself, of which politics is a part. As it has been, politics is old hat, ineffective and boring (when was the last time you heard a man on the street as it were, get excited about politics – unless of course they ‘belonged’ to a party?). Same old (white) lies and inauthentic, impossible-to-achieve promises. We need something new.
(PS. I can answer that last question – the last time I seem to recall people getting excited about politics was when Obama was elected….that was well cool, but where’s that same excitement now?)
Here’s the video.
