Banks also responsible for mortgage problems

Banks are responsible for mortgage repayment problems also. No good just blaming often mislead borrowers alone for the financial crisis - what about the banks run by the 'financially astute'.
Share blame for irresponsible lending & make them accept lower payments & reset the amounts outstanding.

The Spirit of our Age - " Zeitgeist? "

A few months ago my attention was drawn to 'Zeitgeist'. Released on the internet in 07, this three part film talks of the religious, ethical, and moral 'spirit of our age'.
To put its massage briefly we are told that God and Jesus are part of a myth started up to control people, 'an astrological hybrid'. Next, the 9/11 disaster is portrayed as a 'set up' designed to trigger the war on terror and worry people into acquiescence with the many restrictive measures taken.
Finally, part 3, shows the Money Masters, such as the Rothschilds and Rockefellers, intent on gradually gaining dominance over each and every one of us through central control of the money supply. Supporting this view are interesting revelations e.g. the American war of independence was started because the Bank of England overtaxed the colonists; and the Lusitania was sunk in May 1915, killing many American passengers, to draw the US into WW1 and into the Fed's net of exorbitant interest charges on armaments.
So the film brings a viewpoint you may not have seen before, I certainly had not. It suggests that Governments seek to control people who elect them democratically, and that high finance institutions and families who control the money supply are seeking control of not just people, but also the many national governments. Obviously this contain much truth.
However, as to the revelations on God and Jesus, while it is known that in the past the fear of God has been used to control people, to explain away God (or the Creator) as a myth is simply not backed up in our new age of understanding and enquiry.
Walk and open your eyes! SEE so many wonderful things cannot be explained. A child is born, it grows and the wonder increases. There is somehow a special energy embedded in Creation and now many endeavour to find out more about it, to tap into It and use it. This is the true spirit of our age, The creative power that brings us here and maintains us. Through caring properly for each other and our beautiful earth comes HOPE, and from this comes a sense of freedom - and with this power it is easy enough to work around any Controls set upon us.
Certainly look on Google for Zeitgeist and watch the movie. But be very quizzical of all its revelations.
