    Excessive materialism + lax government regulation on corporations.

    Has anyone read this? I think it's an interesting read, though I admit I need meatier knowledge of socialism and economics. More opportunity to learn. Yay.

    My INTP -mom is all in favour of this idea even so she is been there already.

    Well the way i see it is this:

    I live in the UK apparently the 5th richest country in the world before the credit crunch.
    Crunch time. We lose (heard this on radio so maybe not accurate) 1% of our economy.
    Still 5th richest!

    Were still very rich. Its like the difference between a 5 star and a 4.5 star hotel. Simply you need to get off your back side for a few more things.

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    I have noticed, somewhat, that a fair portion of INTP's on this board seem overly detached from the situation, to the point where if one needs to take action to preserve or defend something, they may be the last to do it. Being detached keeps you level headed and allows you to have a clearer vision of the situation, yet it can also keep you from taking action where action needs to be taken. If we were all INTP's in this crisis, I'd be quite scared because we'd crumble in no time :/ .

    My own reaction from day one of the bailouts was "Well, I knew this was coming, but damn it is scary that it actually happened and likely means all hell is going to break loose down the line." After the initial shock I went back to my healthy level of detachment from the situation, but have gone into something different. Now I feel the need to be vigilant and educate myself as much as possible so I can go out and do things in the community that support what I know needs to be done with the power of the truth. I know the coming years are going to be difficult and dark. I know there are somethings I can be prepared for, some things I don't have enough resources to prepare for, and other things I know I'll just have to weather either way. In the end, I know I'll do well in any crisis I face. Where I diverge from my usual attitude is in realizing that there is something I care about that I wish to protect. I know what my own values and principles are, I know what I stand for, and I know what is and isn't right for my home; my country . I know the time has come to put up or shut up, and defend what it is I care about and believe in, or rightly suffer the consequences of of losing it.

    Aside from that, you guys might find this interesting. It's a personality test for when you are faced with a crisis. *quiz is in the little window on the left of the page*
