Cake decoration at last night’s film showing and discussion (60 people attended) on taking back public/democratic control of our money system, featuring filmmaker and author Bill Still.
Still shared a disturbing story about one more type of influence of the financial industry over public policy. In Israel, the banks finance the workings of political parties — not simply make political campaign contributions, but provide funds to permit the actual parties to function internally.
Given such dependence, how harsh do you think the parties will be legislatively on the banks? So much for public officials representing the public.
