'It'll be anarchy': Gordon Brown discussed putting troops on the streets as banking crisis worsened
[link to www.independent.co.uk]

His consideration of such drastic measures arrived in the days following the collapse of Northern Rock in 2008, and the night before he announced his public bailout of the banks, fearing a "total meltdown of the financial system of the Western world".

The system is based on one thing alone... trust... and that trust has been eroded so much over the last few decades and more so in the last few years that they know we are walking along the edge of he abyss and it'll only take one strong gust to push us over...

And I don't trust anyone's printer...

You have a bit of metal, plastic or paper and somehow those things manage to get you food, clothing and a roof over your head.. man that takes a magicians level of trust to achieve...


Right now the trust is so low that everyone seems to looking up the magicians sleeves, in his other hand, in his socks to work out just how they have been conned...

Not good for a system based on the trust that no one will look to see what exactly the other hand is really doing.
