It is the most "educated" portion of the masses that are the most deceived.
I have been part of the discussion in other threads, not just speaking about the economy, but more specifically about "gold".
What do you find? People bragging about how educated they are, they have a "finance degree" (wow!), and so they can tell you, that GOLD is what is
now in a "bubble"...Sheesh.
And yet, they will ignore the most obvious. The PAPER exploding out of the Fed like there's no tomorrow. THAT is what continues to be the engine of
every stinking "bubble" that has emerged, since they were handed the enormous power to produce "money", out of thin air.
What we need today is the small child, who will simply say, "The King is naked..." Perhaps then, we shall also see what even a child could see,
that the King wears no clothes.
But for the most part, we don't see. For one reason or the other, this "long con" does seem to be working. As the OP points out, people prefer to
focus on many other things, but please don't irritate them with reality! Ah, such has it ever been, since the ancient days of Rome, when they
figured out that all the populace cared about was "bread and circuses".
Perhaps we can use an alarming "image" to get the message across. Glen Beck's "hockey stick". Google it, or check the YouTube snips of his
famous presentation. It is absolutely shocking. He presents, in graphic form, the completely insane expansion of the money supply.
For those too lazy to go out and see it, here's a Reader's Digest version. He starts out with this line on a chart. Pretty "flat" really.
You're thinking, so what? The long, mostly flat, but perhaps slightly rising line, goes on, decade, after decade, a representation of the history of
the growth in money supply. Beck has his pointer in his hand. He is leading up to some theatrics. When he gets to the Bush Administration, things
heat up. Apparently, a couple of CENTURIES of the money supply are NOTHING, compared to what they have done, and are doing, today. And so, he gets
to this final decade...
He then gets on a scissor-lift (!), and has it go up a story, as the flat line, goes completely vertical, going straight up into the sky! This is his
"hockey stick", and it puts this whole mess into serious perspective.
As John Exter said, we are now in unprecedented times. Never before has there been anything like this. It is on a GLOBAL scale. When this big-ass
balloon finally comes down, it could be like a hydrogen bomb going off.
And so, what to do? Many are looking to the past, and realize that precious metals may hold the answer. In a nutshell, if you want to survive this
biggest fraud in history that is fiat currency, with the US Dollar being the lynch-pin, then you need to get off the dollar-boat. For 6,000 years,
gold, and silver have served humanity quite well in this regard. Maybe it's time to check into it?
