Now is the time to do somethingSeptember 9, 2019
To the editor:
"Transitions Great and Small," an essay by Charles Hugh-Smith, looks at, among other things, the natural transformation of economies during the next decade. As I have noted before, this is a rough ride which some will not survive.
He observed, "robust, adaptable human systems can renew themselves in the decay / decline phase, but it takes the equivalent of a revolution — either in leadership, a revolution in morals (what's acceptable in the elite governing class) ... or in a productivity-boosting technology."
"Absent some revolutionizing dynamic, decline leads to collapse," he writes.
In what Hugh-Smith calls the decline phase, this is the use of state power by elites who serve their own interests in accumulating wealth and power in accelerating fashion.
This is manifested in the elites lying and manipulating government to conceal their wrongdoing. Without the news media alerting the public, they cannot resist the failing, self-serving leadership if they do not know what is going on.
Charles conclusion: " Since the weaknesses of the empire are being hidden, they cannot be addressed, and so rot that could have been fixed early becomes widespread and fatal."
To avoid this rot, you have to drain the swamp by voting for conservative Republicans like President Trump and Senators Mike Braun, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz, and Representatives like Jim Jordan and Jim Banks. This is the only way we can shed some light on the rot and corruption that is destroying the United States. We have to shine the light on the Progressive Democratic Socialist who brought us this shameful situation.
With Conservatives in charge, we can drastically reform the Federal Reserve System so that they cannot easily blow bubbles and crash the economy on a regular basis. We can continue eliminating job killing regulations that hold our economy back and prevent us from creating the wealth our competitive free market Capitalist system that was bequeathed to us by the Founding Generation.
I have said it before. Democracy is a participatory sport, not something you view from the sidelines. You must engage yourself in the political process to save yourselves and your families. Do something.
