Cryptogon I hardly ever see these talking heads shows, so I don’t know if this type of thing happens often. Apologies if this is just standard fare on the TV nowadays.
Ratigan’s description of the issue represents a lie by omission, and his prescription would perpetuate the problem. Mainly, I liked how workers in the background became concerned and started to gather around to watch what was happening. HAHA. Although this ‘audience’ was probably just set dressing, I found it entertaining anyway.
Ok, so even during a pants shitting rant, the Federal Reserve system should not be mentioned. Isn’t that interesting?
Yes, politicians are corrupt. Thank you, Captain Obvious, but what makes it possible to “Extract America,” by the tens of trillions of dollars?
How about asking why there are trillions of dollars in the first place? That would lead to the real core of this, which is the fact that, by design, the Federal Reserve system makes it impossible for the U.S. to get out of debt. The goal of the ritual is to make the victim believe that the way out of the hole is to dig the hole deeper.
Even during a vein popping rant, where the soundtrack from The Exorcist should be playing in the background, these issues must not be mentioned, and the prescription winds up being more low interest loans…
I agree, though, that it would be a good start for the president to come out and address the issue of political corruption and lucre. Oh, woops. It’s impossible for anybody who isn’t completely corrupt and compromised to be elected president.
The U.S. is a shit sandwich—sprinkled through with thousands of nuclear weapons. There is no way to reform that thing. They’ll just keep looting the shop for as long as possible, and then they’ll torch the place. (‘Place’ meaning the U.S. and possibly much of the rest of the planet.) Anyone who doesn’t see the beauty of these mafia tactics, confetti currencies and burnt offerings will quickly find themselves relegated to the fringes of any discussion about how to proceed.
So what can be done?
At the state, regional and global levels, nothing can be done. Too many people are on the take or busyjust following orders.
I would say to get to a place with abundant clean water, decent soil and relatively few people. Produce your own food and participate in local food economies. There will probably be pockets of survivors, and the place that you pick to go might contain to some of them.
