To read the article without subscribing, you need to click the link from Google ... the level of corruption that goes without punishment that we're experiencing has to be unprecedented.
Whether he's sworn in or not, I think the article I just read should be better entitled "James Comey's Dereliction Of Duty."
Would something like that lead to a new Dark Ages? It's certainly going to be a major step back to a simpler era when the power grid goes down - no question about that. And most people aren't going to be able to deal with those circumstances because they have no concept of manual labor. But do I think we're going to be able to avoid a catastrophe like that? I used to, but I don't anymore. Neither Hillary nor Donald are going to do anything to pull us back from the brink, let alone educate the ignorant masses on what needs to happen to patch the ship and bail out the water. Nor do I believe that there is a will from the Republican side of Congress to do anything about it while the Democrats keep hacking away with axes to scuttle the ship! I like to think of myself as an optimist, but I really don't see how we get out of this at this point.
Today do not hope for a return of the so called balance of payments money because that money has already been restored by the printing press and that held by other countries would just increase the money in circulation with the result in price rises.
Yes, but messy things happen when governments default. If one thinks that such a process would not result in a breakdown in order of massive proportions, I would suggest that history and current events show otherwise. We have seen what happened in Argentina and Brazil decades ago, what happened in Greece recently over the austerity measures there, and what is now going on in Venezuela.
"The Lesson would be, do not trust government for more than protection of individual rights from criminals and foreign invasion."
YES!!! But no one right now wants to hear that message - hard and truthful as it is! Everyone right now is convinced of the looter mentality: that they deserve certain things in life! THAT is the central message that people must internally come to grips with... and reject. The entire government for the last 100 years has been building up the notion that government exists to further the lifestyle of its citizens even when that comes at the expense of its citizens, and people have been buying into that mentality for several generations culminating in the 1960's. Now a majority of the people support these policies that make a few responsible for paying for everyone else - and their children and grandchildren have grown up with those expectations! They have the facts before them that such a system has never been and will never be tenable, yet they reject it just like every other progressive generation. It comes down to humility - the characteristic of being willing to recognize and admit that you aren't as special as you think you are. In a US culture that continually pushes arrogance, that humble pie just gets more and more unappetizing.
Unfortunately real life villains aren't scripted by Hollywood for happy endings.
