Un link su di un’illusione oggi ‘fondamentale’

Il link è: “Are We (Collectively) Depressed?”, dal sito di Max Keiser. Su come la depressione collettiva nasca da una rabbia mal espressa o erroneamente scaricata su “gli altri” – chiunque questi siano -, invece di rendersi conto che è il Systema che non va.

Qualche passo è interessante: ‘I discuss this in my book Why Our Status Quo Failed and Is Beyond Reform: the top 10% who are benefiting mightily dominate politics and the media, and their assumption is: the system is working great for me, so it must be working for everyone. That’s the implicit narrative parroted by status quo mouthpieces. The inability to express our despair and anger generates depression. Some people will redouble their efforts, others will seek to lay the blame on “the other” (some external group) and others will give up. What few people will do is look at the sources of systemic injustice’. Questa illusione, per cui “se funziona per me, allora ‘deve’ funzionare per tutti” è oggi **al centro di tutto**, purché ci guardi con un mini minimo di attenzione libera, non ipnotizzata da qualche “altro” cui dare la colpa, chiunque sia o siano questo/i altro/altri, da Obama agli immigrati agli oppositori politici, a quel che si vuole insomma.

Ma che cos’è questo “se funziona per me, allora ‘deve’ funzionare per tutti” se non l’ultimo – quasi risibile, ma insieme diffusissimo – passo dell’individualismo moderno ?? …

Domanda retorica …

Ed è anche la firma della crisi esiziale dell’individualismo moderno, in quanto un qualcosa che raggiunge la sua massima espressione, ormai è a un dipresso dalla sua fine. In ogni caso, non è in questa illusione del “se funziona per me, allora ‘deve’ funzionare per tutti” che si ritroverà **giammai** la soluzione a qualsivoglia problema; anzi, vi si ritroverà solo e soltato la dissoluzione, il preciso contrario della soluzione.






Due link, su Trump e sul dollaro

‘Donald Trump is a symptom of imperial decline, and not really the problem.
The world faces not a “clash of civilizations” with radical Islam (although the dust-up remains a significant challenge), but a crisis of civilization that includes riotous climates, poisoned oceans, failing forests and collapsing economies’;


“The New World Order: Failing States and Collapsing Systems”.


‘So, a bond market crash is a distinct possibility? Armstrong says, “Yes.  All these things are contagions. . . . The real risk is coming from Europe and Asia.  That is the real risk. . . . There is no place to go but the dollar at this point.”

If and when a global collapse comes, it will come from China or Europe. Armstrong says, “Yes, because you don’t collapse the core economy.  It’s always the peripheral coming in.  It was the same thing in the Great Depression.  It wasn’t the fact that the U.S. defaulted.  The problem was the first bank that went down was in Austria, and it happened to be owned in part by the Rothschilds.  When people hear a bank owned by the Rothschilds went down, people started to sell off all other banks.  Then all the countries defaulted.” Armstrong says there is going to be a major “monetary reform” in the not so distant future, and the U.S. will end up with a dollar for domestic use and a dollar used for international trade, sort of like a “domestic dollar” and an “international trade dollar.” Armstrong says, “Yes. All it is doing is replacing the dollar as the reserve currency.  That would satisfy China and Russia, and it would simply be maintained by an international board.  I strongly advise against the IMF.  It’s way, way too corrupt.” So, is gold a good asset to have with a coming currency reset? Armstrong says, “Yes, at that point, you are talking about a hedge against government.  When you go through these monetary crises, effectively, all tangible assets rise in price, not just gold and silver. . . . Tangible assets have a value to everybody globally.  The downside is on real estate.  I would never put 100% of my money in real estate because it is not moveable.” Fast-forward to now, and Armstrong predicts, “The economy is not going to come back. We are not going to see economic growth.”’ – da: “Strong Dollar Could Cause Bond Market Crash-Martin Armstrong-” -.
