A New Way Forward

Another world is possible. It's time to steer in a new direction. Here's some advice from James Kunstler to Barack Obama. Fundamental economic change is in order. It's time for divorce with the old ways.
The Coming Siege of Austerity
by James Howard Kunstler
Barack Obama, charming as he is, had better drop his pretensions about kick-starting the old consumer economy, fire the Wall Street clowns and parasites who are running that futile exercise, and start preparing a US Lifeboat Economy aimed at reducing the scale and scope of our outlays so we can survive the coming siege of austerity. Meanwhile, I'm glad that he finally got a dog for the White House, because the President knows full-well where to turn in Washington if you want some genuine love and affection.

    And I tell you: the End is here. They are murdering Freedom. They are killing internet. They are ousting the middle classes, who control internet, throwing you all down into utter misery.

    Heed this warning NOW. Tomorrow it will be too late.
