This guy concludes it is better to keep printing fiat money right into Weimar-style collapse than to even try to do anything sane or prudent at this stage. He specifically indicates we "may squeeze another ten years out of this civilization" by doing the historical debauchment-onto-death. Seriously, you don't understand what is happening in the world until you understand what could give rise to that sort of fatalist, nihilist advocacy. Civilization has been well and truly botched up, so badly it is hard to remember what sanity even sounded like.
This is grasshopper logic. This is where it always ends up. Grasshoppers wreck civilizations.
Those of you who think this is a minor hitch which will clear right up shortly are part of the problem. You virtually are the problem. These problems arise when people like yourselves attain any kind of leadership or authority over others. You are not leadership material. If you realize that these problems come from a totally schizophrenic worldview that has drifted so far away from sound practices that it constitutes mass lunacy, you would make for better leadership than the crop of quacks we have at present in the West.
If the amygdala in your brain is working, you know that there are consequences for actions. Positive thinking and group consensus don't matter and they don't affect outcomes. The really crazy thing about all this self-referential logic is that when people differ, self-referential arguments and self-referential references are used to refute them. "America is number one, so that means she will always be number one."
