Order Out Of Chaos: The Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

As I noted in my last article World Suffers From Trump Shellshock - Here’s What Happens Next, there are two primary consequences of a Trump presidency that actually serve globalists and elites in the long run.

The first is the consequence of a perfect scapegoat for the economic crisis which the elites have been gestating since 2008.  Trump enters the White House with a clear political mandate, a mandate that supposedly gives conservatives more power than at any other time in U.S. history.  This mandate might seem like a miracle, a free hand of power to sovereignty and liberty champions to defeat the collectivist tyranny of cultural Marxists on the Left once and for all.  However, it could also backfire, because under this mandate EVERYTHING bad that happens under Trump’s watch can be blamed on Trump and his followers.  Conservatives have been given almost absolute influence over government (or apparent influence); by extension, they also inherit absolute responsibility, whether they like it or not.

I examined this first consequence in detail in numerous articles leading up to the 2016 election.  In fact, it is the primary reason why I was so certain Trump would be president.  He is the perfect scapegoat, or the perfect conduit.  Under Trump, the last stage of economic collapse can finally be initiated by the financial elites and most of the world including half the population of the U.S. will immediately and without question blame conservatism, nationalism, sovereignty advocates and Trump for the disaster.  They won’t think twice about looking in the direction of global bankers.

For those that immediately scoff at such a notion, I highly recommend they research the concept of 4th Generation Warfare.  I also highly recommend study into a Department of Defense paper called 'From Psyop To Mindwar: The Psychology Of Victory', written by Major Michael Aquino (a self proclaimed “satanist”) and Colonel Paul Vallely (today a self proclaimed liberty champion).  I would also compel people to read 'The Art Of War' by Sun Tzu, the same manuscript that all recruits of the CIA are required to read.

The essence of the most advanced form of warfare is the ability to defeat an opponent, or a population, without having to fight at all.  Instead, the master tactician seeks to influence his opponent to surrender without fighting, or, to influence his opponent to destroy himself.  This is accomplished primarily through propaganda, subversion, asymmetric warfare (terrorism and insurgency) and most importantly, co-option.

As I noted in my last article, if you want to be able to accurately predict future events, you must understand the minds of the people with the most influence over those events.  The financial elites, highly motivated and highly organized, are the single most important gatekeepers to geopolitical change today.  Know their mind, and you will know the general path tomorrow will take.

This is not to say that the elites are “omnipotent.”  Frankly, they don’t need to be.  With the utter lack of vigilance and awareness within our society, the elites only need to be relatively intelligent and exceedingly morally bankrupt to manipulate the masses. When skeptics argue with me that the elites would “have to be omnipotent to influence the social narrative in the manner I describe,” I have to laugh.  Any person of above-average intelligence and unlimited capital (as the financial elites have) can do considerable damage to a society, bring empires to their knees and condition the populace to think and react in a specific fashion.

If I had the same resources at my disposal as the elites have (and the same lack of conscience), I could probably do a far better job than they when manipulating geopolitical outcomes. They make numerous mistakes if you pay close attention to their actions.  I hardly consider myself the smartest person around, let alone “omnipotent.”  This is a silly notion.  The reality is, the more ignorant the population, the easier it is to control and misdirect them.  To the ignorant, the elites might seem “omnipotent.” They aren’t; they merely have more-intelligent-than-average people at their disposal and printing presses to pay for everything they want.

The smarter and more vigilant any given population, the more difficult it is to influence them through deception.  This is very simple.  To put it even more bluntly, the elites get away with subversive tyranny because there are too many willfully stupid people.

Following this line of thinking, there is a second consequence of Election 2016 that greatly concerns me — the potential for co-option of the Liberty Movement, the only existing opposing force to globalism.  Co-option requires the centralization of a group in thought and deed under the influence of a small number of hands, or a single white knight figure.  As I noted in my article Will A Trump Presidency Really Change Anything For The Better?, published in March of this year:

"The other ingenious aspect of the Trump campaign is really who he is running against — Hillary Clinton, a rabidly liberal candidate even more hated than Barack Obama. A candidate with a potentially serious criminal record and a penchant for an outright communistic world view far beyond that of Bernie Sanders. Those of us who have been in the writing field for a long time and have dabbled in fiction know that in order to create a fantastic hero, you must first put even more work into creating a fantastic villain. The hero is nothing without the villain."

The unmitigated horror inherent in the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency is like adding jet fuel to the Trump campaign. (And yes, I am assuming according to the results of the primaries so far that the final election will be between Trump and Clinton).

And, as I explained in my article Clinton Versus Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement published in September:

"Whenever you have a rebellion focused on the inherent ideals of freedom, totalitarian institutions struggle to intervene. The issue is, freedom is not only moral, but practical. Wherever true freedom exists, people are not only happier, but more productive and prosperous. It’s hard for a tyrant to fight a rebellion based on freedom because the idea is more powerful than any weapon or any form of treachery. No matter how advanced the tyranny is, and no matter how many rebels they imprison or kill, the idea of freedom endures.

 

The only way to destroy a rebellion like this, a rebellion like the liberty movement, is to make it about something other than freedom. The powers that be have to convince that movement to support policies that are destructive to their own ideals. If this can be done, then that rebellion has lost the advantage of principle — the only advantage that really matters."

The co-option of the liberty movement is not necessarily direct.  It can be achieved through what I call “absorption.” Take note that the mainstream media and elitists avoid using the label “liberty movement” at all costs because this is something we labeled ourselves many years ago.  Instead, they seek to control what we are called; labeling us “populists” of the “Alt-Right.”  The liberty movement has been fighting the globalists in the information war for a long time.  The average conservative Republican is new to this party, and yet the liberty movement is being called the “Alt-Right?”

Even Bloomberg pointed out with relative glee that the Tea Party (liberty movement), a movement which leftists despise with every fiber of their being, could be devoured by Trump’s campaign and reconstituted into something else.  Read their editorial The Tea Party Meets Its Maker, but only if you have a strong stomach.

In the battle against the Marxist left, it is important that we do not lose track of our original identity, or the elites at the top of the pyramid.  Also important is that we do not forsake our original principles in order to achieve “victory” over our adversaries.  This is a very difficult problem to discuss when you consider who we are fighting against.

I have always said that it was the social justice cult and their zealotry that drove the rise of Trump.  It was they that created the public firestorm with their open contempt for our right to free thought and free expression.  But keep in mind, this has all happened before, and with terrible results.

In Europe during the 1920s and early 1930s, the overall rise of Fascism was in direct response to economic crisis and the insurgency of communism.  Communism is essentially collectivism on the far left side of the political spectrum. Fascism is a collectivist trap the "Right" sometimes falls into.  Both lead to centralization and tyranny.

Communism is tyranny in the name of undermining the strong and independent in order to make room for the weak.  Fascism is tyranny in the name of routing out the weak to make room for the strong.

It is these two political extremes that the elites have used over the past century to dominate geopolitical outcomes.  Again, for those who are skeptical I highly recommend the extensive research and evidence presented by Antony Sutton, who outlined succinctly the FACT that both the Bolshevik Revolution and the rise of the Third Reich were funded and managed by Wall Street moguls and international banking interests.

The elites are notorious for playing the extreme left against the right in order to drive conservatives to the opposite extreme.  My concern is not only that through Trump the elites can easily scapegoat conservative movements for a global economic crisis, but also that through the intense vitriol of the social justice left, infuriated by their loss to Trump in the election, conservatives may be driven to abandon their constitutional ideals and become the monster they hoped to destroy.

Carroll Quigley, CFR elitist and mentor to Bill Clinton, was highly open about the plans of globalists to establish one world governance in his book “Tragedy And Hope.”  The following quote from Carroll Quigley’s Dissent: Do We Need It? could be taken as anti-right propaganda, but I take it as a warning that the elites see potential exploitation of the political right in America:

“For example, I’ve talked about the lower middle class as the backbone of fascism in the future. I think this may happen. The party members of the Nazi Party in Germany were consistently lower middle class. I think that the right-wing movements in this country are pretty generally in this group.”

Again, the liberty movement cannot be defeated by the globalists directly.  If the fight comes down to an open confrontation between freedom versus globalism, the globalists will inevitably lose.  Instead, it appears to me that the globalists are more than happy to either allow Trump into the White House, or to install him in the White House as a means to rewrite the liberty movement into a villainous character, rather than the rebellious hero of our story.

So far it would seem that the temptations to revert to fascism are many.  Set aside the threat of ISIS terrorism and think about the insanity showcased by the Left.

When I mentioned in my last article the crippling of social justice, I did not mention that this could have some negative reverberations.  With Trump and conservatives taking near-total power after the Left had assumed they would never lose again, their reaction has been to transform.  They are stepping away from the normal activities and mindset of cultural Marxism and evolving into full blown communists.  Instead of admitting that their ideology is a failure in every respect, they are doubling down.

When this evolution is complete, the Left WILL resort to direct violent action on a larger scale, and they will do so with a clear conscience because, in their minds, they are fighting fascism.  Ironically, it will be this behavior by leftists that may actually push conservatives towards a fascist model.  Conservatives might decide to fight crazy with more crazy.

The mainstream media and popular media largely controlled by leftist elements are only pouring gasoline on the fire, with major pundits and media personalities steadily hinting at “revolution” in the face of a “Trumpist” America.  But here is the thing, these people are kidding themselves.

The alternative media is eclipsing corporate media today.  Their time is coming to an end.

Leftists including groups like Black Lives Matter are also ill equipped to violently combat a conservative movement with a lifetime of experience in arms and the will to use them.  If the Left leaps into the realm of violent Marxist revolution, they will lose in America.  That said, there is a cost.

The cost could very well be the heritage of freedom that conservatives desire to protect.  The alternative media may overrun the corporate media, but will we become the corporate media in the process?

If under Trump conservatives fall to temptation and exploit the “ring of power” that is government to exert dominance in the name of stopping the Left, then they will ultimately be destroyed as well.

In this case history will not remember conservatives as freedom fighters rebelling against globalist machinations, but as evil “populists” that caused global economic collapse and the re-establishment of the institution of fascism.  The globalists can swoop in after the dust has settled and use the American collapse fable as a story to tell children for the next century.  A reminder that nationalism and sovereignty are harbingers of war and death.  Conservatism will be abhorred as “deplorable,” an ugly ideal akin to Nazism.

At this point, the globalists will have won, for no other philosophy contrary to globalism will ever exist again.  No one would want to associate themselves with historical “villains” and bogeymen.

As I have mentioned consistently, I have no idea whether or not Donald Trump is aware of this potential trap.  I also have no idea if he was sincere in his campaign or simply telling people what they wanted to hear.  At this time, his consideration of neo-con political elites and Goldman Sachs bankers for cabinet positions does not leave a positive impression.  And, his seeming refusal to commit to prosecution of Hillary Clinton (which I also predicted) for her obvious crimes is a warning bell of liberty advocates.

My position is that the Liberty Movement must always remain the Liberty Movement if conservatives and sovereignty proponents want a chance to survive.  We have to be willing remain just as watchful and critical of Trump as we would have been with Hillary Clinton.  And, if he breaks his promises or goes against his oath to the constitution, we must be willing to go to war with him, just as we would have with Clinton.

This puts us in a tenuous position — fighting the Left is bad enough.  Going against Trump if he steps out of line is worse, because then we can be labeled leftists as well.  This is the essence of 4th Generation warfare — cornering an opponent so that each move he makes is a sacrifice.  If the opponent is not careful, he might just destroy himself.

There is a way to undermine this strategy by the elites; as conservatives we must treat Trump like a new employee.  We have to put him on probation and watch him, not give him the keys to the store on the first day.  We must also continue to educate fellow conservatives (and any on the Left that have the sense to listen) that this fight is FAR from over.  In fact, it has just begun.  In the end, our strategy must be for the Liberty Movement to absorb the "Alt-Right", instead of being absorbed.  And, we must focus our efforts and actions against top globalists and their organizations rather than only focusing on the regressive left.

People must understand that the real threat in all of this has been and always will be the globalists.  Instead of fighting each other in a futile theater of the absurd, we must fight and remove them from the chess board, wherever and whenever they show their faces in the daylight.

Sure, propaganda and legerdemain, but if the economy continues to suck that brings about revolution.

The real people versus the delusional; can the bi-coastal elites and deluded survive?

Um...NO.

So, you’re trying to tell us that the “real people,” or whatever that means, are not delusional?

So, let me try this way. You wrote: The real people versus the delusional; can the bi-coastal elites and deluded survive? 

So, are the bi-coastal (elites), in your opinion, the real people?

So you know, I live in the east coast, and post-collapse (2027/2032) people on the coasts and cities won’t be able to survive. You’ll be better off being in a town of 200 people, in my opinion.

I find it interesting that people downvote you so much. Its is no secret that current level of urbanization is possible only because we have tapped into energy source (fossil fuels) that was deposited there for billions of years. And we double their use every decade or so. Which translates to: to keep the system going in next decade we will need to burn as much fossil fuels as in whole history combined. And people still dont get it how this ends.

The flaw in the 'intentional crisis' argument is that the elite will take a huge hit along with everyone else, and yet they care for nothing other than wealth, power, and control.

If TSHTF, the rules of polite society are out of the window, and mercenary bodyguards are just as likely to turn on their employers to steal their wealth, as to follow orders against the unwashed masses.

It appears to me from Mr. Smith's article that his analysis hinges on a linear line of causation.  What the Trump presidential election victory indicates is something else; namely that events are progressing non-linearly.

The Strauss & Howe "Fourth Turning" perception of historical events is gaining increasing media traction - particularly since the election.  People are waking up to the fact that the USA is caught in the power of a secular cycle that is not only inescapable but also is irreversible.  

As Strauss & Howe stressed, the outcome of the Fourth Turning climax - now approaching - is unknowable.  Mr. Smith, in the vernacular, doesn't have a clue.

Almost every one of Smith's predictions has been right so far.  All you've presented is a theory, while Smith has a track record to back his argument. I think he's proven himself as somebody to take seriously.

You don't know if Trump was sincere? Hint: he's a salesman and has started to break promises even before he's taken office. Communism makes room for the weak? It's community ownership of property--find some other way to kill off the weak (capitalists just don't have the stomach for it). If Trump fails it's a grand conspiracy and you'll have to fight the left and Trump? Toss the tinfoil and get a lead hat. Things are the way things are because that's the way they want it to be--there's nothing you can do about it so stop making grandma nervous.

How to fight a massive depression???? How about an income tax holiday for all of 2017?  Think that'd create a recovery.  Also a good excuse to wean us off those FRN and start printing interest free Gov Notes that the Treasury could print up.  And once we didn't need FRN anymore we wouldn't need and income tax to pay interest on it either,  so it'd be the death of the income tax.   How about that!!!!!

What we really should be asking is what is the cost of defeating the establishment. Because THAT is what happened. Trump was effectively an independent candidate. He fought both a Democratic opponent and Republican back-stabbers ... and he won. He was no friend of either major party.

So, what is the cost of winning as an independent? Well, the left is going to die guns blazing. If you want to know what the violent leftists think, just check out Huffington Post on any given day. Those are the people who are deeply invested in the campaign of violence against Trump and his supporters. If you want to understand the softer left opposition, head on over to CNN, BusinessInsider and/or MSNBC. If you want to see the opposition on the right, there are sporadic reports on FoxNews.

The cost of defeating the establishment is permanently having a bullseye on your head from all sides. Trump will be perpetually targeted while he is in office. I believe he will make many positive and substantive changes in government, but he will be under continual threat for his entire presidency.

The answer to this threat is to go on the offensive. Do not placate those who have broken the law. The email situation comes to mind first. Do not let Clinton and her brown-shirts get away with federal crimes. Make a statement ... charge and prosecute all suspects, including Clinton herself if the evidence supports it. Put people in jail for the crimes they committed, even if they are high-ranking political operatives.

 Lots of people will do stupid shit for money. So as long as some asshole can get it without doing anything. That guy can just fiat magic all manner of BS. Like building the first atomic bomb. Or the Three gorges dam.

  The bitch about it is we little people have no say in any of the big money deals. I doubt they could have sold us on a doomsday bomb. A dam project sure. But if everyone had known the first bomb tested might have taken out the planet. They did not know. So pushing that button was done by a crazy person. Fiat buys a hole lotta crazy.

  In a barter based MOE maybe crazy would be to costly?

They dropped 5 B$ of crazy on Kiev. Looks like they got thier monies worth to me?

The Government of the United States of America, and the Central Intelligence Agency, can now lick my balls in deference to my intellect & intelligence because I am a Grumpy Marxist, and I am the architect of the de-Americanization, and loss of American Hegemony, that the shit-for-brains retard sandwich eating morons in the CIA thought they would build Empire upon.

They own the media, the judiciary and the police and they will use them to get their coup. With pizzagate looming they have everything to lose if they cannot overthrow Trump. Either that or they will go full on propagandizing that pedophilia is a good thing.

 On the left right thing.

  They have paid shills dragging the kids when they are young way out into some kool aid beliefs system. Either left wing koo koo pie shit or right wing koo koo pie shit. When they got either group far enough out from center. Send them off on some great killing spree.

Cult building. It works off of trust at first. Then we put on the blinders. Yes we hand craft out own personal blinders. With help of course. Then we blindly follow our group in self delusion. The Global warming camp never even blinked when they changed it to Climate change because they guessed wrong. They still never caught on to this day. Willfully blinded/fooled themselves. Yet cling they do.

  So Fuck all the Book Burners and take the moral high ground with logic and reason. If its true you should be able to back it up with some basic logic and well reasond debate. Because no one really wants to hear about your feelings unless they want to see your tits. Even then?

This next 4years has already been factored in. Everyone here should be worrying whats going to happen after 4 years if Trump does not get 1.) the economy going BIGTIME 2.) immigration reform done with no amnesty(because those people are fucking democrats if they get amnesty) 3.) Stop with the fucking stupid wars already.(only one more war to fight and we all know which country is going down!--- and its not Russia!) 4.) Build the fucking wall already! 5.) this being the most important even though he is being counciled that it is not... make sure they investigate Hillary fully and put her in fucking jail because we all know she has broken the law countless times(countless because we cant find the emails). There are other things but those are the most pressing... this whole win MEANS NOTHING! if Trump FAILS! because it will mean a fucking shithead globalist, fuck you dipshit demoncrat will be elected president in 4 years.

 

Trust me when I say Trump has to prosecute Hillary... it is an absolute MUST! ABSOLUTE! And while he is at it have the FCC go after CNN et al. FOR OBVIOUS FAKE NEWS! ITS PROVEN THAT FOR THE LAST YEAR THEY HAVE BEEN MISLEADING VIEWERS AND THE WORLD WITH THEIR SPECIAL BRAND OF ZUCKER BULLSHIT!

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

"This destiny does not tire, nor can it be broken, and its mantle of
strength descends upon those in its service." - Francis Parker Yockey,

As far as I can tell, the leftists are fighting against a strawman, while normal people are biding their time waiting for President Trump to take office.  The leftists keep calling in "Hitler" though, and if they aren't careful that's exactly what they'll end up getting.  The strawman will have become reality.  They're like children playing with matches.

Instead of trying to fool people into thinking that they have already lost, we could just go Napoleonic on them and you know, like, win.

But I will offer my own strategic observation:

We need a very specifically tailored crisis in order to truly achieve victory-- one that is large enough to break up the current control structures but not so large that society collapses into small groups of scavengers fighting for survival. A very fine line and I hope that the Almighty will serve us up a regular Goldilocks scenario.

By the way, there is no order in American politics. There is also no order in American law. In the United States, we now live in the Wild West.

As a member of the military, I have executed numerous training missions in countries around the world. I was trained to understand that if the local law is not perceived as "equally applied" across the population, then that law ceases to be "legitimate." Once the rule of law is perceived as illegitimate, the government itself is to be understood as illegitimate.

Tell me, how is the government of the United States supposed to be perceived as "legitimate" if it is able to pick and choose who is subject to the penal code? If Hillary Clinton is permitted to break the law and escape punishment, we have to ask where is the line? We know that the peons like you and me are not exempt from the law. So there must exist a limit between our level and Hillary Clinton where the law ceases to apply. Where is that limit? At what level of political prestige does the law cease to carry weight?

To the SORE HILLARY LOSERS here , Get Over It and Move On, just like most of us here had to do while subjected to the FAILED Obama Doctrine's these last 8 years.
If you really seek a continuation of those failed Policies & Ruination of the country, under Hillary, then you're either a Paid up Whore to .Gov OR are doing reasonably well in your life and couldn't give a monkey's chuff for the plight of the 10's of millions of folks State Wide suffering under this Neo-Con/Corrupt/Crony Regime.

Hillary received 4 million more Votes in New York & California and should we not include those two States from the RESULTS of the Election you receive a better feel for the HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE Victory inflicted on her by the PEOPLE. President Trump is the mere conduit for those mostly Abandoned Souls shafted by Predators like Bain Capital & Goldman Sachs.

A much clearer picture emerges from the No. of States Trump won , including those died-in-the-wool traditional BLUE STATES.

Further if you protractors reside in either of those 2 aforementioned States then it's clear that you've been well conditioned into believing you live in the centre of World and are therefore detached from REALITY. FUCK YOU, if you're in VICHY DC.

I figured Trump would win since Lynn Forester Rothschield was FOR Hitlery. She did the same with Obama, she supposedly was against him. So who ever she is "againt" actually wins. We really didn't have much of a choice. Hitlery and Trump really are a mirror image.

1 both have jJewish son-in-laws

2. Daughters are bff

3. Trump was dem then rep/ Hitlery was rep then dem

4 they both deal with shady characters. Trump casino mafia/ clintons Arkansa mafia

5. Both fathers of in- laws jewis and convicted of crimes

Now that Trump said he wpuld NOt persue investigation proves he's all lip service and same old same old... Difference i won't be protesting or needing grief counseling. Just keep on doing what I do. Honeymoon is over.

If it did than evolution and progress would be impossible. If you are talking about "On a long enough timeline" than of course it does, but that could take billion years more and is not in scope of this article.

"Trump enters the White House with a clear political mandate, a mandate that supposedly gives conservatives more power than at any other time in U.S. history.  This mandate might seem like a miracle, a free hand of power to sovereignty and liberty champions to defeat the collectivist tyranny of cultural Marxists on the Left once and for all. "

first: I am warming up about President elect Trump. I sense he really has a chance to make "America Beautitul Again" in my old continental european eyes

second: clear political mandate? nope. not a conservative one. he is, imho, steering to the center. the no-nonsense, sensible, "let's fix things instead of wagging ideological stupidities" center

it's the Republican majorities in both chambers that have a mandate, the first time since 90-something years. to do something, anything that works

the next two years are pivotal for the Grand Old Party. it will make them or break them forever, again in my humblest foreign alien opinion

the break-down of the Political Correctness of the Left is just the cherry on the top. Let them wail

Rather than competing ideologies find out how the system really works.

Why is economics so bad?

Malthus came up with an economics that worked for the vested interests of the land owning class.

Ricardo came up with an economics that worked for the vested interests of the financial class.

Marx came up with an economics that worked for the ideology he was trying to put forward.

It’s complex, quite fuzzy and can be easily biased to suit vested interests.

Early on it became very apparent to the wealthy and powerful that economics needed to be biased in the right direction for their interests.

As Classical Economics reached its zenith in the 19th Century it had come to some unfortunate conclusions powerful, vested interests didn’t like so they backed a new, neoclassical economics that missed out the undesirable conclusions from Classical Economics like the differentiation of “earned” and “unearned” income. It also conflated “land” and “capital” which had previously been distinct.

This grew into the core of neoclassical economics which is basically a way of hiding earlier discoveries and looking after certain vested interests.

It’s arguments look strange and convoluted because they are, they are there to hide something.

Now if we want small Government and for business leaders to be left to their own devices, what other conclusions do we need?

Capitalism naturally reaches stable equilibriums.

There is no evidence for this and the first recorded bubble was the Tulip Mania of 1600s Holland, there have been plenty of other since.

We want the conclusion capitalism reaches stable equilibriums as it serves our purpose and the real world must be ignored.

Neoclassical economics is an economics whose conclusions were put forward by vested interests and then stitched together into an academic framework.

It serves a purpose and it is not to describe how the economy functions.

The effort to conceal the work of “Henry George” can be found in a book “The Corruption of Economics”, neoclassical economists did their job and hardly anyone knows his name today.

2008 - "How did that happen?"

The global economy is being run by fools, anything could happen.

For those that want to look beyond the "black swan":

(take a sneaky peak Central Bankers, look and learn)

1929 and 2008 were the same.

Jim Rickards (“Currency Wars” and “The Death of Money”) has explained how the removal of Glass-Steagall allowed Wall Street to repeat 1929.

In 1929, they carried out margin lending into the US stock market to artificially inflate its value. They packaged up these loans in the investment side of the business to sell them on.

In 2008, they carried out mortgage lending into the US housing market to artificially inflate its value. They packaged up these loans in the investment side of the business to sell them on.

The so called, one off, 2008 “black swan” event has a name – A “Minsky Moment”

Minsky Moments:

1929 – US (margin lending into US stocks)

1989 – Japan (real estate)

2008 – US (real estate bubble leveraged up with derivatives for global contagion)

2010 – Ireland (real estate)

2012 – Spain (real estate)

2015 – China (margin lending into Chinese stocks)

Everyone was panicking about the Chinese stock market crashing in 2015, it was a classic debt inflated asset bubble.

What was supposed to happen?

They always end this way.

Irving Fisher looked at the debt inflated asset bubble after the 1929 crash when ideas that markets reached stable equilibriums were beyond a joke.

Fisher developed a theory of economic crises called debt-deflation, which attributed the crises to the bursting of a credit bubble.

Hyman Minsky came up with “financial instability hypothesis” in 1974 and Steve Keen carries on with this work today.

Steve Keen saw the private debt bubble inflating in 2005. He had the right theory and it wasn’t a “black swan” to him.

In 2007 Ben Bernanke could see no problems ahead and his models didn’t include money and debt. He had the wrong theory.

 

 

1929 – US (margin lending into US stocks)

1989 – Japan (real estate)

2008 – US (real estate bubble leveraged up with derivatives for global contagion)

Once you realise these are debt inflated asset bubbles bursting you can learn from past experience.

Many have studied the Great Depression to see what went wrong.

Irving Fisher came up with the initial theory of debt deflation.

The mainstream ignores his work today.

Steve Keen’s work is based on his work and that of Hyman Minsky enabling him to see the private debt bubble inflating in 2005.

He says it is a debt problem that can’t be solved with more debt.

Austerity is the worst thing you can do and some sort of debt jubilee is necessary.

Central Bankers are using more debt to solve the problem.

Keynes studied the Great Depression and said that monetary policy won’t work, fiscal policy is needed.

The mainstream ignores his work today.

He said monetary policy would just lead to a “liquidity trap”, where investors and companies won’t invest due to the lack of demand.

Could this be the Central Banker’s “savings glut”?

Christina Romer studied the Great Depression and she came to the wrong conclusion, it was FED stimulus and not the New Deal that pulled the US out of the Great Depression.

No, it was the New Deal.

This is who we follow.

Richard Koo explains:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YTyJzmiHGk

First 12 mins. of the video explains the mistake she made.

Richard Koo studied the Great Depression and Japan after 1989, a real expert.

Austerity is the worst thing you can do.

Fiscal stimulus coupled with low interest rates, keeps the money supply stable while the debt is paid down.

Luckily, Ben Bernanke read his book and stopped the US going over the fiscal cliff.

Unfortunately, Mario didn’t.

Funny how this author looks at this. As if we have memory of goldfish. No no, we know this crisis started decades ago. And we know Trump inherited all of he problems. (((Noam Chomsky))) has already predicted this in 2010.

"It is very similar to late Weimar Germany, the parallels are striking. There was also tremendous disillusionment with the parliamentary system. The United States is extremely lucky that no honest, charismatic figure has arisen. If somebody comes along who is charismatic and honest this country is in real trouble because of the frustration, disillusionment, the justified anger and the absence of any coherent response. What are people supposed to think if someone says ‘I have got an answer, we have an enemy’? There it was the Jews. Here it will be the illegal immigrants and the blacks. We will be told that white males are a persecuted minority. We will be told we have to defend ourselves and the honor of the nation. Military force will be exalted. People will be beaten up. This could become an overwhelming force. And if it happens it will be more dangerous than Germany. The United States is the world power. Germany was powerful but had more powerful antagonists. I don’t think all this is very far away."

And this is correct analysis. From what I see its globalism and multiculturalism that are being scapegoated.

Hitler saw some people who were sucking the economic life of Germany and took action-

today a group called leftists by many here, to avoid pointing out they are largely jews.

just list their names from banking to media to politics (podesta much)..

just make a list of Fed chairmen..if you need more ..

then remember in EU for just thinking this ..it is a crime of hate, and jail awaits.

THEY LIVE

"today a group called leftists by many here, to avoid pointing out they are largely jews."

Maybe, but not all Leftists are jews. I guess it's because Left-wing ideology is all about having power and control over the lives of others and over countries to impose their will and at the same time enriching themselves thru corruption.

jews are overwhelmingly on the political Left, including variants of socialism: international socialism, bolshevikism, communism, Marxism, fascism and all the other Left-wing ism's. Now we have globalism which is not strictly political philosophy but it is another face of total control.
