Should We Have Let Them Go?

Recently, I have been constantly muttering to myself about the state of our banking systems, our economies and its long lasting effects on generations to come. I sit here in disbelief, aghast at what has happened. My question is, should we have left the finance houses to their own devices and if so what would have been the affects of this after they had declared bankruptcy?
No-one has been left immune, save for a few economies scattered around the world. Our governments have now ploughed trillions of our money to stave off collapse, but what for? Are the banks grateful for what has been done? Have they learned their lessons? Who should be made accountable? How long will our children have to pay for the transgressions of these irresponsible idiots who were once dubbed our superheroes?
I, for one now believe that the financial powerhouses haven't learned their lessons. Why is it for example that they are still giving their staff huge bonuses for making such huge losses? Why are they giving them huge bonuses from the money that [B]we[/B] gave to them and why do they not see this as morally wrong? Are they Gods?
I very rarely sit in judgement, but this issue has seriously got me hot under the collar, but someone [B]really [/B]needs to be made accountable. Due to the irresponsible actions of these bankers, I foresee unrest in the very near future and until this mess is completely cleared up, I foresee unrest for the indefinite future. I have seen the phrase Martial Law pop up on numerous occasions recently, is this an inevitability?
God bless our children.
