THE 12 APOCALYPSES of Reverend Billy
The Prelate Of The Church Of Stop Shopping Visits London

You can walk over the bridge from London Bridge Station in about 15 minutes. No charge for attendance, the "plate will be passed."
After a summery winter in NYC, and now 100 degree days, climate change has hit this city, while the activities of the banks - driving so much of the damage with their investments of billions - have the protection of a momentum of normalcy. Bob Diamond, Blythe Masters, Jamie Dimon - these rock stars of bank crime hold to their interview schedule in an excruciating slow motion, as the Earth keeps to a much quicker schedule of systems collapse. Will we watch bankers deny their guilt until we are chin-deep in the North Sea?
But whether the criminal class of bankers goes to jail is not entirely the point. We get the feeling that if they were all executed in the next 24 hours that the computers would continue with the tsunami of mysterious algorithms. The monstrous normalcy of Consumerism and Militarism advances and essentially needs no leaders. Can these institutions be stopped. We haven't ever had a revolution to match this kind of power. Our only leader seems to be the Earth itself, what?
