RUNAWAY SOCIAL SYMPATHY

Every once in a while I switch the TV channel from Fox to CNBC to see what the liberals are saying.  After listening awhile I get a deep sense of hopelessness and foreboding for our country.  The most important thing for the left is giving money to people.  They are happy to see the growth of food stamps, disability payments, housing subsidies, free healthcare and all the other welfare benefits.  They utterly fail to see the damage it is doing to the recipients.  Whole cities that once flourished have deteriorated into rotting eyesores populated with shambling hulks of chemically dependent drones.  These people are no longer employable.  They have become incompetent and helpless and the liberals can’t see that it’s their doing.

COLLAPSE

By Simon Black

History shows that dominant powers are always changing. Empires rise and fall. The global monetary system is always changing. The prevailing social contract is always changing. But there is one far greater trend across history that supersedes all of the rest… and that trend is the rise of humanity. Human beings are fundamentally tool creators. We take problems and turn them into opportunities. We find solutions. We adapt and overcome.

The world is not coming to an end. It’s going to reset. There’s a huge difference between the two. Think about the system that we’re living under. A tiny elite has total control of the money supply. They wield intrusive spy networks and weapons of mass destruction. The can confiscate the wealth of others in their sole discretion. They can indebt unborn generations. Curiously, these are the same people who are so incompetent they can’t put a website together. It’s not working. And just about everyone knows it.

We’re taught growing up that ‘We the People’ have the power to affect radical change in the voting booth. But this is another fairy tale. Voting only changes the players. It doesn’t change the game. Technology is one major game changer. The technology exists today to completely revolutionize the way we live and govern ourselves. Today’s system is just a 19th century model applied to a 21st century society. I mean – a room full of men making decisions about how much money to print? It’s so antiquated it’s almost comical. But given that the majority of Western governments borrow money just to pay interest on money they’ve already borrowed, it’s obvious the current game is almost finished.

When it ends, there will be a reset… potentially a tumultuous one. This is why you want to have a plan B, and why you don’t want to have all of your eggs in one basket. After all, why bother working so hard if everything you’ve ever achieved or provided for your children is tied up in a country with dismal fundamentals? If you agree with me, then feel free to share this article with your friends so they also can get a plan B in place. They’ll be glad they did.
