I am back…..and this time I don’t care if millions of people don’t read this blog.
I am blogging again to keep my sanity in a world where we are indundated each day by marketing hype, cant and bluster in a world where truth has become like the plasticine, the clay our children play with.
It is a world where executives of banks that have taken TARP bailouts are using their company jets for private excursions, according to the Wall Street Journal.
It is a world where the gods of the financial Mount Olympus believe they should get a bail out, and they do get it courtesy US President Barack Obama, if only to save the economy.
A world where the new regulations for the finance industry proposed by Obama sounds like a lullaby, rather than a warning against future misbehavior. It won’t put speculators to sleep, but maybe all of us until the next bubble bursts.
It is a world where corruption and doublespeak continue not only in Iran or China but in democratic countries like the US, Europe and India.
It is a world where norms of decency and civility are fast dying out, and getting replaced by individualism and anomie.
I need to blog, to come up for air.
