ETA: I'm not saying that there's no virus. And I'm not saying that it's not dangerous. Just calm down and listen to what I am saying, ok? As
an "uneducated" (and probably smarter than you) Mexican friend, and "
common laborer" put it, there's a smoke screen here. That's the
pernicious thing about it: The most dangerous deception is laced with a trace of truth.
I've expressed this idea elsewhere on this forum and others have, as well, but I felt compelled to give a clear explanation and defense of it once for
all. I've seen posts about the world being prepared for an asteroid strike, for the alien ... (What's it called? Unveiling? No, that's not the word
you all use.) ... whatever. Solar flares? With some of you, it's always something from outside the world gonna either come and save us or come and
destroy us. Forget that. If we're too damn stupid to save ourselves, no alien is going to do it for us; it'd just be wasted effort and they'd know it.
And we certainly don't need any outside help in the destruction department!
This whole debacle is entirely, IMPNSHO, a controlled black swan event, nothing more.
I live in Mexico (legally resident US citizen) and I was here in 1982 when the peso started dropping through the floor. It made a loud crashing sound.
Mexicans still remember it.
After the devaluations of the peso and rising global interest rates, Mexico’s external debt reached 49% of GDP in 1982 (see Figure 1). Debt
service absorbed 142% of total current account income and 24% of GDP (Buffie, 1989). As a result, in August 1982, Mexico was no longer able to service
its external debt.
Currently, here's where the US stands:
According to the U.S. Bureau of Public Debt, in 2015 and 2017, the United States had debt-to-GDP ratios of 104.17% and 105.4%, respectively. To
put these figures into perspective, the U.S.'s highest debt-to-GDP ratio was 121.7% at the end of World War II, in 1946.Sep 18, 2019
I'm no economist, and I'm sure there's a ton of statistics and nuances that I'm missing. Probably somebody will come on here in short order and rip
those figures apart; but whatever you say, that second quote ain't
The entire global economy is one big ponzi scheme and - like in a run-of-the-mill ponzi scheme - the only ones who stand make out like bandits
(because they are
bandits) are the ones at the top who are running it - if they don't get "caught
." Now, getting caught
mean the people know they're guilty; everyone already knows that. It just means not getting their hands stuck in the mouse trap when it slams shut.
The whole thing has to come down, and come down soon. Now if it just came down out of the blue, we'd all be looking at a certain group of people as
culpable, and it might go hard with them. They know this. The only thing lacking to precipitate the collapse was what is referred to by some as a
black swan event
, a unforeseen and uncontrollable occurence that would have detrimental ramifications in the real and economic worlds.
Why sit around waiting for a black swan event to bite you on the ass and leave you exposed? Better to fabricate one and use it to cover yourself. You
can blame the event for the crash, and while everyone is wagging their fingers at the virus, you slip away with your billions to your secret hideaway.
So, in comes this virus. Maybe it was released on purpose. Maybe it was a screw-up by the Wuhan lab and some folks just saw the opportunity and took
advantage of it. Two quotes come to mind here:
"You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." ~Rahm
"Crisis is the rallying cry of the tyrant." ~James Madison
" serves two purposes:
1. It gives a cover reason for the economic crisis. We will be told that the dollar and the markets and the world economy and our life savings and
everything around us came tumbling down into dust because of a virus, not because of the greed, hatefulness, uncontrolled lust and control issues of a
cabal of wealthy, powerful people. Instead of heading to the streets with pitchforks, torches and rope to hunt them down, we'll be hiding in our hidey
holes from the big, bad virus. Which leads to the second purpose ...
2. Since we're all hunkered down in our safe spaces and facing fines and prison time for stepping outside into the street, we (most of us, at least),
being the good law abiding folks that we are, won't dare go outside and cause a ruckus.
See, when you or your mama and daddy or your grandparents lose their life savings in a massive economic crash, it will hurt. However, when you have
billions and billions at your disposal, much of it tied up in actual real goods of value, a crash like this might sting, but in the end it makes you
stronger and richer at everyone else's expense ... literally. As I've said elsewhere, in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king
if they lose an eye here and there, who cares as long as the rest of us are left blind. The will be kings of the heap, dung heap though it
So, folks ,forget about your alien exposure (or whatever it is you call it), your asteroids, your solar flares, your interdimensional beings and the
X-Men coming to save the planet. The reality is much more mundane, and much more devastating.
Have a nice evening.
You may think that this is just a neat li'l internet widget, but it's actually a ticking time bomb, just like those ones in the movies
where they don't know whether to cut the red wire of the blue wire ... Except there aren't any bomb disposal experts who know who to deal with this
