Ratigan sure knows how to throw a tantrum.  He's right about too much money in politics, but I don't know if his idea of an infrastructure bank making loans at 2% for all businesses is such a terrific idea, and I don't know how that addresses the money/politics issue.  Isn't that just piling debt on top of a debt problem?

 Much as I like the

 Much as I like the sentiment of what Ratigan often says, he's just like many/most other bombastic presenters - he's so busy talking that his guests can't get a word in edgewise. Or he just interrupts and talks over them. It's annoying, disrespectful and just makes me think he's more interested in himself than his message.

 All the ideas that I have

 All the ideas that I have ever heard are just band aid solutions. I have yet to hear someone go after the root cause. You can anbesol a cavity all day long, but at the end of the day it is still there.

You seem to be hung up with the notion that fiat money and the federal reserve are the root causes. Dig a little deeper and you will see that it is the monetary system itself that is the root cause. It is monetary exchange of any type that leads to mistrust, greed, seperation, infinitie growth paradigm, and a total disconnect with earth's resources. 

I think you need to trace the roots a bit deeper.

I agree with every word you wrote!

We have an "ism" problem. The ism's available don't suffice, and we haven't come up with a comprehensive new one. Political ideology are slowing down the process of working up a new ism paradigm as well.
