You may insert videos with [v1de0:URL] except use video:URL

 

Type " (square bracket) video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGTBJI1ZO6Q (square bracket)  "       

but hit backspace after you put the video URL in if it shows up in blue, as this is a link. Your video URL needs to be black on your screen. This is a problem when you copy / paste from your browser's URL field.

Hmm, not so crazy about his videos. I personally thought his whiteboard is too small and his explanations seemed both unrehearsed and untested (ie. he didn't test them first on a sample of his target audience).

I've just started watching this 5-part series, which is kinda poor quality (ie. not HD) but is pretty simple to understand.

Loved the Money as Debt videos which I viewed for the first time sometime ago.  These videos were the inspiration for the following three arcticles I wrote.  Enjoy!

Money as Debt II Promises Unleashed is the 8-part follow-on from Money As Debt. Also worth watching.

What I worry about is whether any new monetary system can actually be put in place that benefits the people rather than the banks. Looking at LogansRun's comments in this thread and reading what's going on in the news I wonder whether it's too late. Whilst I'm no genius I would consider myself reasonably intelligent and despite trying to educate myself about what's going on politically, financially and socially it's difficult to really understand the implications of the actions of the Fed, IMF, gold prices, peak oil/food/everything and everything else. And this obviously takes a lot of effort on my part, is it does of the CM and other communities. To really change things you'd have to engage and educate the public so they understand what's at stake and therefore make informed decisions. I don't think the general public are willing, interested or even able to understand this. And the banksters will do everything they can to prevent the understanding.

So even if some of us become self-sufficient, build small communities,  etc, the banksters will still ultimately win because the majority don't get it. I keep trying to engage friends/family in this but other than my wife it seems no-ones really interested.

What we need is some super-rich, globally recognised and politically savvy benefactor to help get the message out and help drive the change. Only I suspect the best candidates probably own a stake in the banks (or the banks own them).

Or I'm having a grumpy Sunday.
