Last year I published How to Take Over the World in the Modern Era. which explains the root cause of what we face as a nation today. Given the situation today, the elite of the world are running against the clock. Serious critical thinking begins when people start suffering. As it is today, only those with little income and political power are suffering and they have started thinking.
The 100 or so richest people in the world collectively have more power within themselves than all of the governments in the world. Is there any reason why they wouldn’t coordinate their efforts at this point in history so as to further consolidate money and power at the top of the economy? Adam Smith wrote that those types of plans were pervasive and normal. Economists elude to Adam Smith constantly but other than that, they pay him no mind.
“People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.” Adam Smith
If more than the poor and middle class begin to suffer economically, for the elite, their greatest opportunity will be lost. To prevent that from happening, the stock market must not fall or worse crash. The economic hardships must climb the income/wealth latter at a slow enough pace to allow them to accomplish their goals before the entire system falls apart.
These folks control the essence of all elected leaders so they receive the representation their constituents would otherwise.
Notice the almost hysterical efforts to censor the truth. Can they unite the country behind them before the system collapses? When the majority start suffering, the majority will also begin thinking.
