After a comment I left on the americanenergycrisis blog, the Wall Street veteran / investment firm CEO / hedge fund manager who runs it asked me to write a guest post. This was the comment I left in regards to his post about Wallstreet and the government not telling the whole truth:
It struck me this morning that it is perhaps due to Constraints vs Restraints.
If they admit to the restraint of the impossibility of continued growth in a closed system, they admit there can be no more business as usual, and that the only option is to downsize everything. Instead they focus on constraints which allow them to prescribe remedies and keep up appearances and appear to be in control of things.
However by admitting to their inability to control forces bigger than themselves, they would help a transition into a more sustainable future and help people to take control of their own affairs.
Highly unlikely though as in would also hand over control and power into peoples hands and out of the governments.
As anyone who checks this site regularly knows, I am more into photos and graphics than writing, but after initially declining his request I gave it some though and ended up writing a piece for him. You can read it here…
