America has defined itself as a society of collective "drug people", pushers, addicts and associates, with our drug of choice being debt

With no more access to their drug of choice after a decades-long binge, the addicts began going through severe withdrawal. The drug-induced mentality of happiness, trust and tolerance was quickly replaced with collective feelings of sickness, fear and resentment.

Very eloquently written, a must read - explains a lot of things including Tea Party

The "tea party" movement epitomizes a strung-out population of addicts who have grown extremely tired of all the lies and unfulfilled promises, and are enraged at those who have so casually fueled their destructive habits for years on end.

I've made numerous analogies between the narcotics and banking industries this week so its nice to see others make the same connection.

Question : Should banksters be subject to random drug testing? Sportsmen and women most certainly are for performance enhancing drugs, but that's not necessarily the kind of drug I'm referring to. These days, boy racers can be pulled over and tested on the post for using recreational drugs just in case their habit causes them to crash their car. Shouldn't banksters be subject to similar testing just in case they crash our economy?

PS I accept that drugs and addiction can be interpreted on so many levels in the context of banking; the above point is only one.

So which would you prefer? A banking kleptocracy or narcotic hegemony? Lloyd Blankfein or Pablo Escobar? Manhattan or Medellin? Mortgageamphetatmine or marijuana?

South American drug lords are regularly killed in police action but name one North American credit lord that's even been arrested?

Fraud is not a drug by itself but rather a method of obtaining the "drug of choice".

Just like any other drug.

Except like debt they are addicted to using fraud,
