The financial news thesae days is a lot of history being repeated. European countries are going the way of the nations in Africa and South America, before them. The objective of Commerce is always conquest. The driving force behind commerce is the fatal flaw in human nature that brings people ro depend on government to rob their neighbors, for their material gain. We now live in a world of organized looting.
These days, we have so many influences bringing out glaring contrasts between Bureaucracy and Humanity. The hot spot today is the Federal Budget debate. This is nothing new. We’ve been watching people threaten each other with poverty since forever. It is during these bouts of confusing numbers and inflammatory ultimatums that we are reminded that turning on floodlights in a crowded bar, at midnight, can expose a lot of surprises.
It is in the contrasts, brought out it all their naked glory, that we see the behavior that causes us to cringe at admitting that we are associated with any of this mockery of all things American. Yet, we need this. We need to understand that Bureaucracy is anti-human. It is cannibalistic. Even in it’s most commercial context, it is impossible to find any compassion or grace for the behavior of Bureaucracy. Something happens to people when they gain auspicious titles and put on a suit and tie. In reality, they are no less human. They just act as predatory animals.
There is one thing that we can be sure of. Those who gain by this unreasonable facsimile of a reality show called government will not be found in line when the inevitable next step down in the currency collapse is taken. None will admit complicity in the Ponzi scheme that is the Federal Reserve. There won’t be a deal good enough to persuade the world to buy U. S. Treasury debt. The situation will become institutional looting and piracy.
This is the point when the masks come off and the wolves devour the sheep. The turmoil and protest in other countries will be seen in the United States. Bureaucracy believes that it is a law unto itself. The human common sense response would be to admit that there is a higher court than any institution of Man. But then, Bureaucracy ate of the forbidden fruit and bought into the original lie, long ago. No, the men of renown have not become gods, and their pride is going before destruction.
We see the news, every day. We see banks defaulting on their obligations, in cycles of paper boom and debt bust. Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain are on the edge of going out of business. Unemployment and inflation are squeezing people everywhere, out of the economy. There are growing numbers of homeless people, living on the edge. Under the developing conditions, we can only see the spread of poverty.
The shelters and subsidy programs do what they can. In many cases, it is volunteers that keep programs afloat. I know many people who will be out in the street, if they can’t get the rent together, in the next two weeks. That isn’t a certainty. Most of them are under-employed day laborers. With the situation obviously not getting better, the importance of facilities like the OUR Center become greater. I would hope that there are more such programs, around the country. My city is very fortunate to have this community effort. The news page for the center is at this link:

In a crisis, everyone does something, even if it’s wrong. There is a lot wrong with the consumption mentality of the social structure in the U.S. As we are seeing with the inflation that is so obvious that no one really believes the economic reports from the media, people are making hard choices. They don’t want to have to choose between enough food to eat or rent to avoid being homeless. Yet, that is reality. Ignoring reality makes people …….
