The New 'Scariest Chart In The World'

While "worst since Lehman" has become ubiquitous and central bankers' experimentations have left us with many "all-time" record extremes from asset values to inequality, we suspect the following chart from Deutsche Bank is about to become the new "world's scariest chart."

"Worst Since Hitler"...

The last time "Populism" surged this fast to this level of extreme, there was only one utterly devastating way out.

Yes, of course they're described risibly as "non-partisan." That's the term of art for a board of directors made up of billionaires, financial sector elites and defense contractors. And indeed, they aren't "left" or "right" in the tired old binary sense, belonging outside our petty squabbles and instead to what Chayefsky called "one holistic system of vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multi-varied, multinational dominion of dollars."

Good idea. I signed it. But I'm having no luck finding a list of dual-citizenship Congressmen and Senators. My local Congressperson told me that there's no such list. That, of course, is bullshit. NSA has lists upon lists of everything.Anybody know a legitimate source for such a list? I don't trust Google search results.

Agreed, and the hyper inflationary period was a direct consequence ofthe punitive reparation policy agreed to by the 'Victors" at Versaille.Hitler rose to power, partly because, with nothing to lose,ie; hyper inflation hadstripped most, of their life savings, he instigated monetary policy which wasdirectly at odds with TPTB at the time.Churchill, particularly,led the charge to put an economically resurgent Germany, backinto it's box.All wars are bankers wars.

Exactly, Hitler knew where to hit the bankers where it hurt most... by outlawing usury & getting rid of THEIR CTRL banks,then creating a new german currency, with no external debt to anyone, got his country back on its feet in 2 years flat & 6.7 million back into work with a better living standardNo wonder they have to demonize him &  tell the biggest OUTRAGEOUS LIES ever since,imagine if a nation were to emulate his direct assault on THE MONEY CHANGERSAs for the holohoax bullshit, look that up in detail, just like 9-11, it was another Bankers Scam

Not just punitive reparations per se, but payable predeominantly is US dollars.  A much bigger problem:

Never before had there been an obligation of such enormous magnitude. Nevertheless, all of Germany’s political parties and government agencies sought to devise ways to tax the economy to raise the sums being demanded. Taxes, however, are levied in a nation’s own currency. The only way to pay the Allies was for the Reichsbank to take this fiscal revenue and throw it onto the foreign exchange markets to obtain the sterling and other hard currency to pay. Britain, France and the other recipients then paid this money on their Inter-Ally debts to the United States.

So last peak populism was around 9 years AFTER Hitler came to power and 15 or so years before his attempted coup in Munich. Couldn't the spike in 1940/41 be better explained by huge support of governments now fighting a huge war?

Ummm, neanderthals didn't have high IQ's genius.  Their slightly larger brain was disproportionately devoted to visiual cortex (ya know so's to not get eaten by big things) and some level of motor control.  They didn't write, had no language.  They likely died due to inbreeding cause they couldn't compete against homo sapiens, who worked together in a (gasp) social structure.  Their cognitive ability was shit, as evidenced by some of their few decendent posters here.

Kinesthesia is one of multiple measurable forms of intelligence. Believe it or not a guy throwing a spear or a baseball is solving physics problems in real time. I'm really curious to know how you know whether people long dead spoke or not. Neanderthals couldn't have perished from inbreeding because DNA tests confirm their genes persist in many of us today. They were just assimilated into the genetic melting pot, another urine stream in the collective gene pool.
