Let me run a quote by you:
Our entire system has been captured and we are entering the final stages of decay and ultimately a day of reckoning where the guilty and innocent alike will suffer the awful consequences of currency collapse, death and destruction on a wide scale, and likely civil and world war.
I succeed, therefore I am. And if you do not, well, we shall have to do something about that drag on the efficiency of the economy and the maximization of profits. Ah, the burdens of the aristocracy, and their far flung sahibs. This essay concerns me greatly, because such thoughts echo throughout the Anglo-American culture of late. They are whispered in the evolving mythos of those favored few who enjoy certain völkisch advantages, presumably justified by the nature of their blood. We have seen this kind of sociology before, as the justification for the widespread looting of wealth, the ransacking of nations, and the neglect, ghetto-ization, and murder of marginalized people.
One more maybe?
Never forget that US Dollars (like all other government currencies) are irredeemable. That means that although you can trade USD for many goods and services – even gold – in the market today, no bank or government agency is required to redeem your dollars for anything. At some point, market confidence in the dollar will fade, and the bid for dollars will shrink. And shrink some more. And then the bid for dollars will be withdrawn. That's Zimbabwe Time!
This was all posted in the past couple days by people who have blogs (not just ZeroHedge). While the S&P 500 has flirted with new highs. Of course, the same stuff has been posted by people who have blogs for the past 4 years - ever since S&P 666 - so I doubt any of it is indicative of anything, and therefore none of it is newsworthy in any way.
Life sucks, politics sucks, and the system sucks, sure I agree: but it takes a delusional level of exceptionalism to believe that this time is so much worse than any other time, or that your country is so much more corrupt or doomed than other countries.
Exceptionalism and hyperbole. It's free all over the internet.
