The mention of the Plunge Protection Team is a trial balloon. How much in the name of bailouts is the public willing to swallow? Suppose the public turns out to be less than enthusiastic to the idea of of serving a giant crime syndicate for a few more decades? Does that mean no bailouts? That would only mean more force would have to be used to convince the public to be more patriotic. Who knows? The public might swallow the whole thing. Americans are trained from infants to promote their own poverty. They have been doing just that enthusiastically since the middle of the Reagan administration.
My point here today is that we are entering an actual depression, not a recession. This is one of those once or twice in a lifetime events where entire populations in all countries will be offered a look at reality.
I have been posting videos on the new Fantasy Free Economics YouTube channel. So far they all focus on reality and the choices a person can make in choosing the right version of reality to adhere to.
Why Youtube? With a Youtube channel it is possible to reach a broad section of society. If you have ever tried to spread the truth around, you already know it is a tough sell. If you like this blog, Don’t be shy about posting sharing these videos and the articles as well. Actually, the truth is always free. People pay to hear any other alternative, and mostly only engage in truth seeking only when their fantasy world collapses around them.
It turns out that at this very moment fantasy worlds are unraveling all around the globe. The economic abyss we are falling into is much worse than can be easily fathomed. Decades can go by where entire populations are completely out of touch with reality and happy just because of it. Today’s issues are so serious, our political system as well as our economy may not survive. Why get in touch with reality? At this point, it may turn out to be necessary in order to survive and keep from losing everything you own.
Of course I adopt the version of reality nature provides. That version is not very popular but it could very well be the only one left a little further down the road. When reality catches up with mankind suffering goes parabolic.
The truth is a hard sell. Fantasy Free Economics gains readers one at a time. Major search engines simply do not list blogs which disagree with their political agenda. As long as folks share the link to this blog and others speaking out against the grain, the truth will at least trickle into the public consciousness.
