Well it is the end of the 13th baktun, so life as we know it is going to change drastically by 2012. I think we should just start ridding of our monetary system completely, take a step back and take a look at who makes how much for what they do. For example, an actor can make up to 20-30 million $ to make a movie, something that fun, and solely for entertainment, not survival. Or how about athletes being payed millions, to perform a form of entertainment, playing a sport they love....!!!??? Solely for entertainment, not survival. The whole thing is a circus, and thats what's wrong with it, it is run by clowns.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs)
I feel really sorry about it. The crisis definitely affects the globe. And it just reminds us of rethinking about the system of Capitalism and true meaning of life. Does Capitalism bring all goods to us? I live in a developed territory but I don't reckon the present financial system has made any progressive contribution to every human being. Social justice is hard to be found and the situation of umployment will only get worse if people don't realize and fix themselves from being selfish and greedy, on both individual and corporate levels.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs)

before industrial civilization enters the terminal stage, the endgame, finance, money and markets must seize up and wither. this is a purely abstract, numerical indication of the very real destruction and negative, this-worldly effects civilization inherently breeds.
