The much acclaimed, “The Love of Money” has been flickering over our hypnotic screens of late. In it’s final stages we are shown how an angelic PM (or as some say a “one-eyed Scottish idiot”) steps in and saves the world’s financial systems from the abyss, almost singlehandedly.
It may well be that the program tries to clarify what happened in the 80 years up to this fatal date, but somehow it gets lost in this personality cult. Did all the Messianic Saviour’s (national and international) hang upside down in their respective caves – praying to the money god – for all these years?
Or was this ‘threat’ just another ‘lucky’ opportunity to transfer even more public funds into private hands?
