About two years ago, I moved my bank account from Regions (regional) to Monroe (centered here in Monroe county). About four months ago Monroe Bank was swallowed up by Old National (statewide). I then noticed that it was charging new fees. That annoyed me. Ten days ago, I started the process of moving my money to a local credit union. Hadn’t realized how in tune I was to the latest OWS “flash mobs” on October 15th until I saw videos of what happened inside and outside a NYC branch of Citibank, the first video chaotic, the second, abundantly clear.
P.S. As we remove ourselves from the centers of false power, we also begin to trade, swap, share, exchange energies of all kinds without the use of money. We remember that we are intrinsically connected. Much more fun than chasing after money as the false “bottom line.”
