Excellent stuff. Thank you.
However, I disagree that one should leave the table if dining with an important Bankster. Such an opportunity to speak truth to power would be a precious gift. Poison, pugilism, etc, seem more appropriate than merely leaving the table.
IMO, no amount of earthly wisdom or natural effort/means will suffice to alter much of anything at this late hour. Our predicament is principally spiritual; so will be the remedy.
