Once in awhile (more lately) my instinct shouts that the world is falling apart all around us. It’s as though many world events coupled with failing economies are culminating into a coming disaster or series of disasters. And these are all man-made. The more that I read and research while searching for underlying truths in current events, and economic and political policies, there are times when I’m astonished that the world has held together so far – both at home and abroad!
We are certainly in a mess, and the following are just a few bullet-points that come to mind:
Pure and simple, there’s a lot of bullshit going around these days in the political arena, the financial arena, and mainstream news media arena.
Deception and managed perception is all around, and it’s there to distract you, to misinform you, to obscure harsh realities, to muddle, disorient, and to complicate…
The bullshit meter shown above is pegged. Wouldn’t you agree that we’re awash in the stink?
The government (Washington) ought to be very concerned about the latest long running poll in which it was recently revealed that Americans trust is now at, or near, record lows in the Executive branch, Congress, the Supreme Court, and the mainstream media (‘the press’).
Given the number of Americans who have lost faith and trust in their government, one can only wonder what might happen following a trigger event such as a major economic collapse…
There are many triggers for the coming economic collapse. There are also many signs that we are presently in deep doodoo.
A complete breakdown of the global economy will bring on a severe economic depression, possibly for decades. In our modern world of interconnected finance and risks, we have long ago seemingly reached a point of no return (astronomical ridiculous and non-payable debt). Trade wars, currency wars, and then world war will inevitably be our future. Many believe that we’re in all three right now and it’s only a matter of time before TSHTF.
If signed into law, New Hampshire will join ranks with the ‘Constitutional carry’ states of Vermont, Alaska, Arizona, Wyoming, and Arkansas having passed Senate Bill 118 (SB116) on FEB-12, “repealing the license requirement for carrying a concealed pistol or revolver”, and will be a win for 2nd Amendment advocates and all law abiding citizens of the state and elsewhere.
New Hampshire law already allows anyone (resident or non-resident) to openly carry a loaded firearm without a license, and although NH is a ‘shall issue’ state (for a concealed carry license), the changes made within SB116 will remove that requirement entirely.
As opposed to a complete economic collapse, is it even possible today for a partial economic collapse to occur, given the intertwined economic thread woven throughout the fabric of the West’s financial systems? Could pulling just one thread unravel the whole thing?
Unless you are in the business of banking, trading the stock market, or other such related financial industry, chances are that you’ve heard the term “Derivatives” but perhaps don’t really understand what they are, and what the big deal is regarding the apparent risks of toppling the system as we know it…
Here’s a simple definition of derivatives, and why they are so dangerous:
