Assignment #4 To be Completed before the Call on 6.17.13

Watch the Documentary Ethos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qW9qeItdtc (68 minutes)

1) Reflect on the connections between private ownership of central banking & the debt based money system, corporate personhood and the way in which the media operates being owned by big business.

2) Consider how these factors make up the center of power in our society.

3) Consider how many issues will be helped by the ending of corporate persons, how society will benefit from the beginning of a new age in journalism where big business no longer controls the news and how a sustainable money system will help to create a sustainable society having eliminated the need for more debt and dramatically reducing inflation.

4) With these prior items considered, reflect upon how the removal of these factors that make up the center of power is a pre-condition that must be addressed in order to confront issues like the ecological collapse of life systems with the coordinated effort and resources needed to have a reasonable chance to make a difference or to confront other key social issues.

5) Make a list of 5 or more issues that can be shown to be helped by addressing these pre-conditions and be prepared to share these in breakout groups of three people.

6)What ways could we spread this information & link the efforts of other groups or organizations by encouraging them to focus on these central pillars of the power structure along with their main issue as a means of aiding their own cause.
