Never buy back your soul

Being afraid that one is not explicit enough

So, the Basel mode

main purpose being to demonstrate
how and why discourse analysis
can never satisfy the scientific approach.

I say
He say
We say
You say

We all talk
Over
And over
And over
And over again

You won’t believe you’re on the eve of destruction.
So you continue with the discourse
About the pathway that takes you there.

A fractional reserve

Money is debt,
created by government bonds,
and/or fractional reserve banking,
essentially the same thing.

since decoupling from the gold
Standard money is fiat
the value ascribed an indication
of the confidence of the market
in the medium of exchange

To goal being to siphon a proportion.
Due the ‘inventor’ of the investment opportunity.
Converting a substantial proportion of manufactured debt,
into personal worth.
Is to goal, for every good capitalist.

Even better, if you can.
Leverage the feel good factor,
associated with sustainability.
Seeming to mean,
use everything today before it runs out,
because of the collective investment in debt.

Numbers (1)

We are betting our entire future.
Pensionan oil funds,
on bargain hunts for capital growth

The numbers tell us,
we haven’t yet encountered
any energetic limits.

The market democracy
does not make (formal) plans,
for a liquid fuel supply deficit

And so it fails,
to plan for the future.
And so it fails.

Truth (2)

Numbers remain as they were invented
with no ulterior motive.
I know and I like them.

They do not post on Facebook
telling me life could be better.
Nor comment on my virtual friends

Numbers have nothing to sell
The result of ergo cogito sum
They tell us one truth

On the News

Today we were told the news
As it happened
And when more happened
They told us the news again

At the current rate of news
the energy runs out quite soon
A quick flash in the Pan of concern
replaced by a few murders

Car accidents consumed the next day
And traffic troubles when
Quite a few hours afterwards
A child was run over

Consumption was rife
And so was extinction
Their quid pro quo relationship
left out of the news

Facts aside
sacrificed to entertainment
The truth
starts making the news

Das ding an sich

We make things
And then more things
That make more things
Of every thing

We make from every thing
The market for
A new thing
From any thing

Since every thing
already exists
We are really changing
Our values
