  1. Hi Ellen,Thanks for all that you do. Mr.Khavari,say he will think about starting something online.(public banking) Also about going independent. He has my 100% support. One thing I hope, he and all of us do, rethink profit. Profit isn`t natural,to expect more than what we put in,aren`t the laws of physics.When we leave this world,we can take nothing with us.Profit is a bad idea,the proof is our dying world. Ellen,have you talk to Howard Dean? Does he support you? When are you going to get on FreespeechTV? MSNBC? Please let us know.

It is nothing wrong with an “ethical profit”; we need to have it, in order for the businesses to exist. We must create an economic system that “Ethical Profit” is an integrated part of it; profit maximizing drive must simply go. You can read more about it, in my latest book, TOWARDS A ZERO-COST ECONOMY, page 71 – 73. This book is available for a FREE download at
