As I watch global events unfold, I've had to ask myself if the people in power are really as incompetent as they seem, or is there simply more to the
story than we are being told. I think most people on this board would agree that there is some sort of collusion going on behind the scenes. And
even aside from any conspiracies, I think the average American (or any citizen of the world) acknowledges that there is corruption in high places, and
this contributes to our current economic predicament.
So this raises the question: What is really going on that the general public is not made aware of? Is corruption running the economy into the ground
on a global scale? In a sense, I think this is the case, but I also think it is more complicated than this.
Some people here have argued that a potential economic collapse is intentional. The more I consider what is going on, the more this idea makes sense
to me. Why would people be so opposed to Ron Paul's views about living within our economic means? What we are currently doing is creating a ticking
time-bomb (a massive financial bubble) that is just waiting to go off. I don't believe the people responsible for this are oblivious to what is
transpiring, but they do seem opposed to fixing it. In fact, they are ratcheting up the very efforts that have put us in this predicament.
So what is really going on? I had an idea pop into my head last night that might possibly answer this question. First, I think it is quite possible
that a global economic collapse is being orchestrated. But the big question is why? People may have differing opinions on the answer to this (and I
think they should all be considered), but here is the idea that I came up with.
Our biggest threat isn't a nuclear Iran or extremist Muslims. Rather, our biggest threat is an economic collapse in the United States, or even just
a significantly weakened dollar. People in power realize this, but they also realize we might be beyond the point of no return. Therefore, the
solution is to bring everybody else down with us. Orchestrate a global economic collapse so that everybody is weakened, and not just the United
States. Given the global nature and interconnectedness of the economy, this is not too hard to do.
It is certainly possible that I'm confusing an effect for a cause, but it would make sense logically. My question to you all is what do you make of
this possible scenario? Or more generally speaking, does our current economic situation seem intentional? I am open to all opinions and ideas.
