Agenda (draft ---  Contributions/changes from the collective encouraged )

7:00 Round up of news and events

7:30 The last item of session 18 meant to be a critical look at pye-in-the-sky hopes for a new world:

Effective rebellion/Withdrawing consent? How/by whom?

"The unfolding of love and truth has been written about and spoken of by the great prophets, sages and mystics of all cultures for thousands of years, it is THE EVENT when humanity is lifted above the darkness and fear that has so engulfed us..."

Is this how others will change the world responding to information collected and disseminated?

Session 18 on 2nd May 2017 - notes* Caveat - these notes are not minutes but more brief, sporadic notes of some of what was mentioned in the meeting. They are more an "aide memoire" for those attending the meeting than a fair representation of what was said.

1. Twitter – Brian Giresh – none of the above. Nafeez Ahmed – deep state. Complicated to confuse. Francis Bacon – go quite deep. Truths and communicate. Collective creation of the Agenda.

2. Money from money = dividends can be just as exploitative. Kelso – Mortimer Adler – Capitalist Manifesto – working directly/income generating assets. Share owners being defrauded under the current law. Net profit to be distributed as dividends. Retaining profits to by out individual shareholders. Corporate law doesn't oblige company to distribute profits. Workers to become shareholders in the company to start receiving dividends. Shareholders defrauded over time. Every workier building up savings to buy shares. Kate Raworth – Doughnut Economics. Kaiser Report – new start ups. $400 orange juice maker. Global Research – usury. Inflation – was the way to reduce government debt.
