In recent years (more or less since the absurd and even fraudulent victory of a nitwit like G.W. Bush for president of the supposedly most powerful nation in the world in the year 2000, accumulating ever since up to the equally fraudulent credit-default swaps -by banks of that same nation- that almost drove Greece to bankcrupcy for a second time in 2011) I have developed a growing affinity and awareness regarding Human Progress and the conviction that intelligent virtual communties can and should have a mayor contribution to this. I consider the internet to represent the collective human knowledge, creativity & consciousness and, as such, it plays (should play) a significant role in the global process, which should be free and transparant, towards a truly human society.
A new (clean) economic and social order - Society 2.0
- Down with Bank Secrecy
It hides one third of global wealth and stimulates 90% of corruption (destructive large-scale global corruption)
Redistribute the money and forget about that invented 'crisis'.
- Create new public and transparant banking system
accounts and financial transactions of this bank publicly available through internet
with supreme control and input by citizens.
- Criminalize corruption: 1 year of prison per million Euros on under Bank Secrecy, no questions asked - more than 10 million = equal to murder.
Companies pay back double the amount that they have on tax havens.
Delegalize obscure financial products/speculation;
Deze zijn basically ideologisch en hebben in eerste instantie geen specifiek beleid t.a.v. 'geld verdienen'... zou ook een beetje tegenstrijdig zijn, niet?
Maar als je er toch je huis en eten van moet betalen: vooralsnog google ads.
Algemene internet filosofie: ordenar, agilizar, visualizar
Europa gaat niet over geld of financiële instellingen, Europa gaat over de mensen en de maatschappij!
Natúúrlijk is niemand blij met een Europese Gemeenschap die alleen maar denkt, praat en blaat in macro-economische termen. Dan kan je net zo goed thuis blijven (oftewel, in je eigen land).
Prioritaire wereldproblemen die opgelost moeten worden
Eigenlijk bestaat er maar één fundamenteel probleem op wereldschaal, dat vervolgens leidt naar alle volgende problemen die oplossing behoeven.

What they want is basically the same as Iceland, the only one European country (although not in the Euro) with guts sofar: stop playing the unfair game of the banks, where "the bank always wins" or in other words, the people always loose.
Zielig dat ze zich zo moeten uitdrukken omdat ze niet genoeg aandacht hebben gekregen toen ze jong waren of anderzijds gefrustreerd zijn...

Knowing that all serious Global Problems are caused by Large Scale Corruption (political, corporate and other crime), which is allowed, sustained and even stimulated by the existence of BANK SECRECY, all NGOs, Activist groups and Movements should include

I profoundly agree with your mission, since I believe the existence of Bank Secrecy and Tax Havens to be the Black Hole of global society and cause of the main threat to real democracy: large-scale corruption (institutional and corporate), convinced that it leads to most of the wars, organized crime, violation of human rights and the destruction of the planet. All for personal gain.
The Independency Project, as part of the Human Progress idea, means to be independent from race, nation, religion, banks and the markets, and wants to share and spread this thought, as well as to search for possitilities to develop this towards a workable option as way of life both for the individual person as for society as a whole ("el colectivo"), giving expression to the idea of "Be the change you want to see in the world!". Aware of the fact that everything is always a "β"-version, this could implicate constant change and adaption although not necessarily.
Regarding to science, my main interest is true science, nuclear physics and astronomy, the worlds of the tiniest and the hugest. Where does it all come from and how does it work (deep down inside). Derived from it also geology, the science that tries to show the proofs of some of the theories from the other two.
Webs met commerciële (profit) instelling
Since I haven't found it on the web (an hour searching in google, several langauges) I'll just have to do it myself: a simple chronological overview of the countries that got in trouble after the start of the crisis in 2008. I understand it became official with the crash of Lehman Brothers, although apparently there had been signs all over long before. I happened to be in the US when all they talked about was the great bail-out that would solve everything. Poor Obama having to clean up all the mess afterwards (including of course Iraq and Afghanistan).
I have already made the step from indignant (indignado) to inspired (inspirado).
As I see it the greek problem would actually have an easy solution. At the same time it would be also a solution for countries like Portugal, Ireland or Iceland and, as a matter of fact, most countries if not all. Surely the official institutions will consider it a too simple point of view or even naive, but even so, why not just:
Stop Corruption, End Tax Havens!
Most of modern society is (still) based on economic gain.
Many (most) people nowadays will find this logic, because they don't know anything else and society has worked like that for generations. Thus they think this is unalterable. As in former eras people thought it was unalterable that society were mainly based on war or on religion or on some feudal system or that the earth was flat. The same way that these ancient convictions turned out not to be necessarily true, it could turn out that economics does not necessarily have to be the base of society.
