Rhetoric Propaganda” The Industrial Monetary Complex”

Postby RogerGLewis » Wed 25th May, 2011 (05:58)
For the past Two years I have followed with increasing amazement the sheer un evenness of the Debate on Climate Change by any stretch for research science it is almost completely one sided. The money is backing the CO2 side of the debate and they have the PR budgets sewn up as well as most of the research money. I am an Environmentalist probably what some might even describe as being of a Tree Hugging bent I find the Notion of Carbon Trading highly suspect my preferred solution is to Tax the Polluter at source and provide disincentives to creating unnecessary demand. Typical chicken and egg stuff but consumerism is the invention of capitalism in my own world view( YMMV ) That wonderful internetism “Your Mileage May Vary”. is applicable to to all statements one might make of opinion or indeed apparent empirical notions.
So why is it relevant, well cue music. Sleepers Awake, J. S Bach, Black Beauty or Llyods TSB Theme Tune. To challenge the hugely profitable vested interests. That what is proposed challenges this, is just one example of the ingrained acceptance of their existence and safeness conditioned into all of our psyches they have the Right to be the custodians of their System which is for our benefit how dare we question.

The Economist is running discussion on whether Banking is now safe, This was posted in the discussion this morning.

Abraham Baeza • Yes it’s safe and will continue to do so for the next few years. Sure some banks will be sacrificed and millions of jobs, assets and money will be lost with new schemes and complex investments, but it’s naive to consider a world without banks or financial institutions. I’m pretty sure the banking system will remain stable as long as there’s need for capital and money supply.

I replied.

Roger Lewis • Abraham, No one in the preceding comments even hints at a world without Banks or Financial institutions. As for the notion of sacrificing some banks and blithe acceptance of new schemes and complex investments I wonder at which school of comic / tradgedy you took the unit on? Perhaps it was Ironic observational deconstructionism, taught by a certain M Freidman at Chicago. 
The banking system is a feral WMD and systemically unstable What Nassim N Taleb calls 
“epistemic arrogance” typifies the Arrogance of the System and this is not safe.

There are other examples of the well meaning Group Think that will be encountered there are evangelical believers in the Status quo and it is this army of footsoldiers who will be motivated into getting the Vote Out against the “Deniers” “Flat Earthers” ” Tin Foil Hatters” we may as well choose a perjorative we also find amusing right now and try and introduce it as the common coinage of phrase. Something that conjures up the idea of Profligate scroungers would be ideal maybe “the Rakes”. Anyway I think you can see where I’m going with this. Heres the communication strategy for the Climate Carbon Trading Lobby this is what we will be up against.

Anyway I thought a communication/ PR strategy would be a sensible discussion to start.

All the Best

Heres a web site link to Futerra the PR/AD agency behind the Rules of the Game document. The Banks will have lots of Futerra’s

I used to employ PR, Advertising and Political lobbyist firms in my own Businesses. These guys lie for a living, can be reasonable fun at Lunch but quite honestly their far from the wildest creatures in the Zoo of commerce.
