    I watched BBC 4 programme last night about the south pacific. The programmed juxtaposed between the island of Anuta, a tiny island which by using sustainable use of resources manages to thrive, and Easter Island which was exploited to devestation of natural resources by it's early inhabitants. This is a good warning to modern society. Given the way that capitalism and the relaxation of banking regulations, have given rise to a world economic crisis, which has forced our own goverment to bash the poor to pay the rich, isn't it time to cooperate for the good of the 90%ers of the world. Or should we just let the rich pile up their treasures in tax havens, until the worlds resources are completely destroyed.

    Here here! hope people will wake up to their senses.

    ps./ Greedy people will only just become more greedier. Regulation is needed.
