Bank Bailout?

The Flower Song - art by Anne Vis
While I am playing with fractals as you can see in this latest artwork, our government is busy bringing this country (the Netherlands) to bankruptcy.
Does anyone even understand why the banks are being bailed out, and not the people? The latter would be a million times more productive: the people would have money and would buy stuff, the economy would be thriving, the tax would feed the government enough to keep going and everyone would be happy. Any other business that is doing such a lousy job, would just go bankrupt, not the banks. With what justification? And it is not just money, it is literally a matter of life and death.
A grim picture? Sure. In some new age circles it is softly referred to as the "Great Harvesting of Souls" ... Nice. Does it help to view it that way?
The only spark I have found so far, that would be a tiny light at the end of the tunnel, is a proposal by a British group called Positive Money. Their proposal is a must see/read for everyone. In short it explains how money is being created by private banks (who fill their pockets with it) and what to do to stop this process.
As long as this is not the case, I will be posting about this again in all likelihood, as I have in a previous post. Because, while you are busy reading this, the banks are in this very moment busy plundering your account.
