Why Centralization Leads to Collapse

By Charles Hugh Smith: A system that suppresses dissent is fault-intolerant, ignorant and fragile. 

Increasing centralization has been viewed as the solution for all social and economic problems for quite some time. The Eurozone project is one recent manifestation of this belief. 

The basis of this belief is rationality and efficiency. If we centralize production and decision-making, we eliminate all sorts of inefficiencies. Decisions can be made by "top people," and supply chains can be rationalized from a hopelessly inefficient clutter down to a supremely rational and cost-effective pathway. 

Ironically, in eliminating inefficiency and messy decision-making, centralization eliminates redundancy, decentralized pathways of response and dissent. Once you lose redundancy and all the feedback it represents, you lose resiliency and fault-tolerance. The centralized system is fault-intolerant and fragile.

Edward Snowden is in more danger than ever Already over 30,000 of us have asked President Obama not to touch him.  Yesterday the President publicly said, "I'm not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker."
If you haven't yet emailed the White House, please do it now.
The choice between secrecy and democracy rests with the fate of our whistleblowers.

GLOBAL LOOTING: How the EU Finmins’ scheme offers us almost no protection from haircuts

The thrusting lances of the Knights Template will skewer us all in the end
The Slog: I confess to wondering more and more, as the world careers towards disaster, at what point people will wake up to the systematic rules being drawn up around that world in order to steal every last bit of wealth left to us….now that the econo-banking mess is beyond self-repair.
Already, the European press routinely refers to ‘bail-ins’, casually reporting that EU FinMin clowns have finalised the Template that Was to be Unique…but will clearly be universally applied – probably starting with Italy. The process that emerged from FinMin fulmination is fairly clear. Insured deposits (of under €100,000) are to be fully protected; Uninsured deposits (of over €100,000) are not protected, but given preferential treatment; and Bail-ins of at least 8% of the banks total liabilities have to come to before any resolution funds are tapped.
