The Politics of Banking and the Banking of Politics — Campaign Finance

Now the question is: Should we hold the institutions themselves responsible for the collapse or the individuals that concocted the fraud? It would seem to me that so long as we support an economic system that romanticizes over the idea of freedom from regulations and unlimited growth, you won’t see an end to the corruption. It seems as though there’s news every day that highlights the very nature of investment banking—

Some things you might want to consider before casting your vote this election

The seat of the Presidency is a position of power that offers very little capacity for well-intentioned change. That is to say, individuals who seek to better humankind find that they are best able to do so pursuing other endeavors that aren’t political elections, leaving the over-worked, undereducated, and barely-surviving majority to decide for themselves who is the lesser of the two evils—which is almost always the case in presidential elections

A Quick Update

In a rush to publish some content for our audience we’ve – purposely – allowed ourselves to get off track a little bit with what we intend this site to be. This site came to exist in a matter of days, after months were spent discussing its focus. We chose not to have backlogs of writings we could use for blog posts so that all of our entries would feel current. Every thing we’ve posted on AnonGen (that is not source-linked) provides a fresh take on our subject-choice’s context. We’ll get back to expanding idea’s, but for now we wanted to make sure our audience wasn’t just clicking to read a single post. As the Home Page explains, we want this site to be about connecting on all levels; not just economic and political commentary.

Exponential Potential if Occupy Could Solidify

The theory of non-violence is both an underrated and overrated starting point for protest. Gene Sharp’s “The Politics of Nonviolent Action” provides us with a comprehensive list of methods usable to achieve an ultimate political goal by utilizing a specific model of non-compliance. The effectiveness of the methods being used is not in question; however, […]
