This guy's got a lot of common sense.

He understands at the gut level what's wrong; and he makes a few very insightful comments, too. For example, his observation about working on Sundays; in other words, the "workification" of everything. And how this undermines normal social structures such as home and family, which then undermines the broader society and helps to turn everyone into a rapacious "consumer."

Good video!

I agree with him 100% and resemble much of what he said. It seems like the working man is getting demolished in today's world. However this being said I've made some God awe full choices in my life that is magnifying the mayhem in my life today. Hate to say it but I should of listen to my parents. They were right about saving money but it's too late.

I was "lucky" enough to grow up with parents who were really irresponsible with money - which made me super cautious with money and so we're doing fairly well, thank Elvis. My parents, though, are bankrupt - and it is too late for them, too.
