Do you like being kicked in the a$$?

I don’t know about you, but I kinda react negatively to being abused, duped or defrauded!

But look at the majority of voters all around the EU – they voted conservatives into the EU parliament.

People must be quite stupid and „blessed“ with an unbelievably short political memory. Those neo-conservatives having been voted into office are the cause of the current economic slump. With them it’s always about „deregulation“, „less red tape“, „less intrusion of the state and government“ – all shorthand for „don’t make it harder for me to shaft everybody else and get rich quick!“.

We need less of this US-style worshipping of „efficiency“ and self-interest of a few, and get back to more control in the banking and stock market sectors. And back to a more socially responsible economy.

A new perspective?

I have to say after reading this piece on the BBC-website my respect for the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has grown immensely.

I couldn’t have put it better (even though I tried here and here).
