The call for justice

For those of us who have been around long enough to remember the tragedy of Atlantis, there is nothing new in this time and age ... or so it seems.
We also know that in all cultures there is talk about this being a revolutionary time which is supposed to turn the balance to what is also referred to as "the Golden Age". Which would give us hope that this time around, things will go differently.
Time to turn from greed to justice.
How is it that the regular media seem to just not understand this, or maybe not WANT to understand?
Yesterday things in the Dutch media reached a new low when Huub Willems, a supposed teacher at a university of law, was interviewed on the topic of a bankster who fled the country after having received a bonus of one million Euros and leaving a toppled bank with an immense debt to be wiped up by us ... the people.
A blogger had called to the people to approach this bankster and demand the money back. His reasoning was that it just is not fair that this guy gets off with one million and the people have to pay for the mess.
So why do the media of all people they could interview, find this old fashioned guy, completely out of touch with what "ordinary" people are currently going through, who pleads in favor of the bankster as not being guilty until proven so. Exactly what proof does he want in this case? We all know that such a trial will never take place. Which is exactly the problem: there never are court cases against these criminals (at least not in the Netherlands).
And the people are livid, for their livelihoods are destroyed.
And then they are not allowed to say anything, because of "lack of proof"?
These days "proof" is never requested any more, everyone can end up in jail without accusation or trial (this is standard in the US already and no doubt will be followed by the EU) ... only the banksters are too rich to jail?
If the judicial system would work properly the bankster would have to be brought to court and mr. Willems would have his point. However, he is not looking at the absolute failure of the judicial system. In the first place the bankster is not brought to court. In the second place, the system is so corrupt and flawed, that it is highly unlikely that "evidence" will be found, even though any child can see it plainly. It is not without a reason that the heading "OM blundert" (translated as the judicial system blundered (again)) is on the front page of the newspapers on a daily basis.
Firstly it would help if it becomes rule that people over 65 are not allowed to teach at universities any more. It starts with what we learn and if the law students don't get proper education, we will continue to be in this mess.
Secondly, a great clean-up operation of the entire judicial system and the introduction of laws that reflect the need for justice as perceived by the population would help.
The bureaucracy and excess of people involved in this sector needs to be eradicated. There is too much talk about nothing and not enough about what really matters. This would also reduce the ridiculous costs that are going on in this sector.
In order for that to happen we need functioning media, with a truth seeking mission as opposed to media trying to silence the people and brush things under the carpet to protect the elite.

As long as those things do not happen, people WILL take justice in their own hands and prosecute the banksters with whatever means they have. And things are not spiraling out of control because of this, it is the other way round: things ARE out of control and that is why people that are desperate take desperate measures. But I guess mr. Willems has a comfortable position from which he thinks he can afford his viewpoint ...

Mean time I launched a new web page with clocks - the ultimate sign of times ...
