Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What Brzezinski is talking about is something like what I had in mind - the articulation of a clear vision for the future that can start leveraging and widening the existing fault lines within the elite. That vision, which needs to be fairly well thought out, with a specific agenda to achieve specific goals, can help fuel and direct the global political awakening that I agree is under way, if haltingly.

Democratizing the financial system - peer to peer in your words (which maybe is different from "democratizing", actually) - would indeed seem to be a key piece of that plan, given the need to wrest political and economic control away from the financial sector. The public will need to own their banking industry, and while outright nationalization provides one possible solution, what you propose would seem to fit with a popular reaction against state capture.

And the world will live as one
