Treaty and Titanic

• The orchestra on the Titanic famously played while the ship sank. I am sure, if pressed, they would have said they were just introducing an air of "stability" to proceedings. Whether they played or not, the ship was going under, so the stability bit was a moot point.

This is so relevant in this month of May 2012. Everywhere I go, I see a political party telling me to vote Yes, as it will introduce that elusive air of stability.

I do have a message back. As long as we play by the crooked financial rules of our current economic models, we are going under. So a vote for Yes or a vote for No matters little. In fact, it's all a moot point.
