So, this weekend saw the leaders of the “free” world get together for some nice snacks, a great dinner and some fabulous wine to go with all that.
At the same time the world was eagerly anticipating news from said gettogether, news that would right the wrongs of todays financial market, news that would point towards a better, more viable future for all mankind. Perhaps not news that would taste really good right now, but news that would show that the leaders understood what was happening, and furthermore cared about the hundreds of millions of people who had appointed them leaders.
Well, it was not to be. News? What bloody news? Everything is fine, stop complaining, instead be content – that was the message from the G-20 meeting. For a much better take on it than I can master, go to this blog.
So – looks like we’re going down, all of us. And something tells me that the leaders leading us towards the abyss will jump off the bandwagon at some point, cheerily waving the rest of us goodbye.
