In this outstanding interview, Billionaire silver advocate Hugh Salinas Price was asked if the gold & silver markets are manipulated:

Of course the gold and silver markets are manipulated. You have to be either blind or a Harvard Graduate with doctorate in Economics to ignore the fact.
The purpose of the manipulation is the same as the purpose of the French Revolutionaries in attacking gold when they were printing their “Assignats” paper money like crazy; to try to suppress the indicator which showed the destruction they were carrying out with unlimited printing of fiat money. Gold tells the Truth and so it is an enemy of those who wish to deceive their populations. Paul Adolph Volcker, famous former head of the Federal Reserve of the US, once stated: “Gold is my enemy”.
Gold will triumph over paper. It always has, ever since the Chinese invented paper money many centuries ago. But in the meantime, paper money is twisting the economic facts to such a degree, that enormous distortions are taking place in the markets. Enormous investment mistakes are being made. All this will become evident in due course; a gigantic collapse is going to take place and many who think they are very wealthy will find they have next to nothing.

Submitted by Guillermo Barba, Global Financial Intelligence Blog

The Inteligencia Financiera Global blog (Global Financial Intelligence Blog) is honored to present an exclusive interview with billionaire entrepreneur Hugo Salinas Price. We are sure our readers from around the world will enjoy it.

Mr. Salinas, thank you for accepting this interview.
-As many people know, you have been an advocate for liberty, free markets and honest money among other topics. You are started the project-proposal of monetizing the pure silver coin in Mexico but, can your proposal be implemented in any country? What does it take to do that? Could gold be monetized the same way?
My proposal was, and is, to give a monetary value in local currency, to a silver coin which has no engraved value upon its face. The monetary value – higher than the value of the silver in the coin itself – could be quote, ideally from the Treasury. If the price of silver rises, this quote could be increased to give the silver coin a higher monetary value. (It could rise either because the price of silver in dollars has risen, or because the local currency has devalued.) But under no circumstances should the monetary value, once quoted, ever be reduced. If the value of the silver in the coin falls, the monetary value remains the same.
This is an entirely “doable” project. Actually, it only replicates what used to happen with silver coins up until the middle of the 20th Century. You see, silver coins, all over the world, always had monetary value superior to the value of the silver which they contained. (Same as we propose). When the value of silver fell in the 1930’s, the silver coins retained their monetary value unchanged. (Same as we propose). But silver coins disappeared when the price of silver rose after WW II. What we propose retains the silver coins as money, because if the price of silver rises, the monetary value of the coin also rises. (This was impossible in the 20th century, because the monetary value was engraved upon the coins. We eliminate that problem, by having no engraved value upon the coins.)
This project can only become a reality if a leader with enough political power a) understands our project b) wishes to do something to benefit the people whose leader he is.
At the present time, the prospects for our project are poor, because the world “leaders” are really not independent men or women; they are under the control of their respective Central Bankers, who form an international fraternity whose leaders are the Fed, the IMF, and the BIS. Whenever anything “monetary” is presented to these supposedly top world leaders, they all refer the question to their Central Bankers. These, of course, are completely against anything that will devolve real power to the population, real protection for individuals and their families. They are against all forms of SAVINGS; their whole interest lies in promoting more DEBT, and NOT more savings. They one and all consider that savings are simply a drag on GROWTH, and they want people to spend, not to save. And the silver coin promotes savings, which in fact are the fountainhead of all prosperity.
Gold cannot be monetized in this way, only silver. Gold is in fact money, so it cannot be “monetized” or “demonetized”. All that governments can do is either a) to allow it to be used as money, or b) to put up obstacles to its use as money. Currently, governments put up obstacles to use of gold as money.
Today, the peso value of a one-ounce coin of gold is $16,925 Mexican pesos (kitco.com Jan 23, 2014). Now if the Mexican government were to say that the one-ounce coin of gold has a monetary value of say, $20,000 Mexican pesos that would not put a higher monetary value upon gold; it would simply be a declaration that the peso has a lower monetary value. Such a move would not “monetize” gold – it is already money – but it would devalue the Mexican peso: to one twenty-thousandth of an ounce of gold.
-Mr. Salinas, why is it important to go back to sound money (gold and silver)? You know, “modern” economist like Nouriel Roubini call gold a “barbarous relic” and others name silver the “poor-man´s gold”.
Mr. Barba, everything in our modern world is a lie. Look wherever you will, and you will find lies. Our civilization is living on borrowed time, because you cannot deal with Reality and the problem of finding sustenance for life in Fiction or Lies; you have to deal with Reality by means of Truth, and not by Lies. If we go on pretending that we can avoid Reality by means of Lies, we are going to end up in a barbarous state.
The world is attempting to live by means of the great lie of fiat money. It will not work. You deal with Reality by means of Truth; Truth is thinking that checks with Reality. Gold is money, and if we refuse to face that fact, we are lying.
-How and why did we get to this current global economic crisis, where debts in the world (over all in the “first world” economies) are growing up exponentially? Is there any relationship between this, public deficits and the abandonment of the gold standard?

$7.77 Shipping

We got to this state because our leaders – in Universities and in Politics – have wished to forget Reality and have thought that by using our brains we can get around Reality. Thus our thinkers and political leaders have been attempting to put Reality to one side and in its place, use fictitious money which can be manipulated to keep people happy.

The problem is fundamentally a moral problem. Is political power to be based on Reality, or on systematic deceit of the populations of the world? Our leaders have chosen mass deceit as their instrument of power. What they will obtain will be utter chaos and disorder, and mass impoverishment.
One of the problems is that the population of the world is now headed for 7.5 billion humans, and the fact of life is that poverty never has been eliminated and never will be eliminated. There will always be people who live in misery. Now, that fact is politically unacceptable! And so, politicians lie to their populations and print up funny-money to distribute and thus appease the people. But such a policy cannot eliminate the fundamental condition of life in this world, which is that some people will always be poor. Efforts to alter this condition only lead to far more terrible conditions of utter despotism by governments such as the Bolshevik Communism of the USSR under Lenin and Stalin.
We have an educational example in the French Revolution of 1789.  In 1790, the Revolution had begun and frightened businessmen contracted their operations. The complaint was “There is insufficient money!” And so the most brilliant Frenchmen thought that if there was a scarcity of gold, they had the brains to overcome this problem. How? By printing money! So they began to print money, at first in moderate amounts. But, all they got was a rising price of gold in terms of their printed money. So they began to fight gold, to disparage it and to persecute holders of gold, and they printed up endless amounts of money. It all ended very badly, after sending gold-holders to the guillotine or the galleys.
The people of Paris were reduced to starvation. Napoleon ended it all, saying: “I shall pay gold, or not pay at all.” You cannot get around the realities of life successfully, no matter how brilliant you are. The graduates of the great universities of the world, do not agree; they think they are qualified to run the world according to their brilliant ideas.

-Who benefits from this policy of permanent monetary and credit expansion? What can the average person do to protect himself from this attack against his private property and purchasing power?

The clear beneficiaries of monetary and credit expansion are those who get the money and the credit first, before the rest of the people. They become wealthier, at least for a time, while the rest of the people sink into diminished well-being. But eventually, all goes up in smoke and heads begin to roll: those of the guilty as well as those of the innocent.
The only thing that the average person can do is a) to understand the situation, first of all. And b) to save up some silver and gold, which may perhaps, if he is lucky, allow him to survive the collapse that invariably comes after money and credit have been expanded beyond any limit.
-Do you think that the gold (and silver) markets could be manipulated? If so, what would be the purpose of such manipulation and could that last forever?
Of course the gold and silver markets are manipulated. You have to be either blind or a Harvard Graduate with doctorate in Economics to ignore the fact.
The purpose of the manipulation is the same as the purpose of the French Revolutionaries in attacking gold when they were printing their “Assignats” paper money like crazy; to try to suppress the indicator which showed the destruction they were carrying out with unlimited printing of fiat money. Gold tells the Truth and so it is an enemy of those who wish to deceive their populations. Paul Adolph Volcker, famous former head of the Federal Reserve of the US, once stated: “Gold is my enemy”.
Gold will triumph over paper. It always has, ever since the Chinese invented paper money many centuries ago. But in the meantime, paper money is twisting the economic facts to such a degree, that enormous distortions are taking place in the markets. Enormous investment mistakes are being made. All this will become evident in due course; a gigantic collapse is going to take place and many who think they are very wealthy will find they have next to nothing.
-Would it be possible to return to a gold standard? Would it be beneficial for creating jobs for younger generations?
A return to a gold standard will not be possible until thinkers and leaders begin to think differently from how they think today. We know for a fact that people in Asia have not forgotten about gold. They are buying gold frantically. They can see what we cannot, that the dollar is doomed. Perhaps a new monetary order may be imposed by China and Russia acting together. At least, that is a hope.
There is only one way to deal with Reality and the problem of human survival: through a clear recognition of the facts. Gold allows us to recognize the facts, however much we may dislike them. We do a disservice to the young when we continue to turn away from Reality and think that amassing paper wealth is anything that can endure. The young deserve the chance to build their lives according to their ability in dealing with Reality, and this is the chance that gold gives them.
-Do you think that the world is ruled by a certain group or groups of people, who “control” the history of this planet? Is this possible or are they just conspiracy theories?
Certainly, the world – in the current mess – is run by perhaps one thousand individuals, who use the false economic theories that prevail to further their hold on power. There may be an even smaller very influential group, within these thousand individuals. But the main problem is not these power groups: the main problem is that false economic theories are supported by billions of humans who blindly accept those theories. So actually, it is the people themselves who enslave themselves.
-Mr. Salinas, we know China has been accumulating gold at a very high rate. China is now the #1 consumer of this metal, over India. Why is gold so important to Beijing? Is the Chinese government hiding something? What do you think?
Evidently, the Chinese are not so silly as to think that gold is no longer of vital interest and importance to humans. China is thousands of years old. The US is not even 250 years old. They know that the rule of the US dollar is coming to an end, and are preparing for that moment. They are not talking about this, because they know that those who think understand China’s motives, while it is useless to explain their motives to those who will not think.

-Last year the Bundesbank reported that it would repatriate all of its gold reserves from Paris and part of them supposedly located in New York, in the 2013 – 2020 period. Nevertheless, last year they repatriated merely 37 tons and only five tons from the NY Fed. In your opinion, what would be the reason for this delay?

The reason is crystal clear: the US does not have the gold is says it has. The US was the custodian of a gold cookie-jar, and the US government simply ate up the cookies. They have no gold left-
-In one of your recent articles (the one entitled “The siren song of the Welfare State”), you write that in our world the national management of an economy means “making millions of individuals do what they wouldn’t do if left to themselves.” Could you please explain this, and why the outcome of this lack of freedom is “World Socialism”?
It is very simple. When governments attempt to “manage” an economy, they have to make people do what they would not do if left to themselves. This is obvious. If government allows people do what they wish, without interference, then the government will not be “managing” anything. If government is to “manage” the economy, it MUST interfere with what individuals would do if left to themselves.  “Government Management” MEANS that you are interfering in the decisions of individuals.
When government prints up money, it is twisting the economic facts and leading individuals to make decisions they would not make, if the money was gold. So here you see, people unconsciously do what they would not do if they were dealing with real money. Printing money is one of the main ways of “managing” a modern economy by mass-disinformation, because money is a transmitter of economic information through prices. If the money is false, the information it provides (prices) is false.
Now as “government management” means interfering with the decisions of individuals, the result will be impoverishment, because people always try to maximize their own benefit by their decisions, and if they are not free to take their own decisions, they are fighting a losing battle to achieve their own benefit and progress: they have to take second-best or third-best or fourth-best decisions, all to their detriment.
So this condition leads to less prosperity. As prosperity fades, governments claim they need more power, stricter management, more management to make things go better. And that process of more and more “management” finally ends up in: Socialism. Quite logical.
-In another of your articles (“When Reality overthrows imagination”), you state that at no time in history has the human kind lived in this real, physically tangible world, relying so much on the human brain’s capacity for imagination. Is this a problem that affects lives of human beings? Do they rely too much on technology and erroneous economy theories? Why?
Imagination is a wonderful and beneficent ability of the human brain, no doubt. But imagination must find an anchor in Reality. If we have no anchor, we are adrift in a world of dreams. That is our world today, a Dream World, based on fictitious money which is now being created without any limit. See Japan’s fantastic plans to create vast, astronomical sums of fiat money to get out of an economic funk. We must have imagination, yes, but anchored in Reality, not in fantastic dreams. We are dreaming ourselves into a very real Hell, thanks to imaginary money, which is what we are forced to use – all money in banks is only imaginary money.
The world is enamored of Technology and thinks that the great triumphs of technology are sufficient for us to affirm in all confidence that technology can solve human problems. But the problem is that technology deals with the physical universe, which is subject to predictable responses. The sphere of human action is not amenable to technology, because humans have free will, which atoms do not have. It appears that our so-called “Economists” today forget this fact. They want to “manage” us to prosperity, forgetting that we have free-will and will inevitably frustrate their plans for us. But, they will go on attempting to “manage” us until we collapse into a new Dark Age. That is what lies ahead for humanity, unless….. you fill in the dots.
Thanks for your time and answers Mr. Salinas.

This was the first in a series of exclusive interviews with several pundits on gold and silver. Stay tuned!
Guillermo Barba
  1. I’m still trying to connect the dots of how the “One Bank” is going to use this global currency crisis to remove paper/physical currencies all together!?  This way they can control and track ALL transactions.  It seems to me, that if the Central Banks cannot be trusted with paper, after destroying global finances, why would any mass allow them to whole heartedly control global finances through 100% digital numbers?
    Yet, all things come to pass, and I trust the rev. of John.  If no one high or low can buy or sell without the mark of the beast, then that is a governmental control of finances 100%. (with it comes 100% control of turning off your spigot) 
    Oddly enough, it would seem the entire WORLD has to be on par, meaning the Communist must shake hands with the Capitalist?  Thats not going to happen.  Hmm… Therefor the West becomes destroyed by this financial fiasco, the communist gain global control through china & the Brics bank, democracy withers away, and under the Communist rule, the One World Bank controls everything, and people have no say? (Something like that can only happen under a Socialist/Communist rule)
    -Sound like I’m hitting it close to home?

    • World Government Sponsored and Mandated CryptoCurrency?
      666coin?
      NSA and GCHQ can record every bit of data that passes the main Net Nodes, so blockchains are all recorded in an unbroken transaction library … the people who are pro-BitCoin have no idea what they are supporting IMO.
      As the Paper collapses everyone runs into Cryptos, just look at Bitcoin, it already has a bigger market cap than the Silver market.
      BitCoin is just a trial baloon though so that people are used to it (Proof of Concept) when the legitimate one is launched. People who invested in BitCoin will be fleeced as soon as the World Government Sponsored version is released and PayPal and Credit Card facilities etc ONLY support their new one.

  2. The one and ONLY answer to the debt problem is to declare it null and void because of FRAUD ! It is fraud because it is mathematically impossible to repay ! It can not be repaid because the interest is never created on the loan and that is fraud ! And fraud voids all !!! If we don’t void all out of thin air debt the bankers will own almost EVERYTHING !!! And we will be homeless slaves ! They have a license to counterfeit ! Can I counterfeit the money to repay the loan ? Why not ? If we even attempt to repay a impossible debt (the national debt) all we do is show our ignorance !   The way to fix this mess is so simple a 3rd grader can figure it out !   We void the fraudulent debt and everyone keeps ALL the items they have so called debt on !  And we start to use a debt free currency or / and gold and silver ! And then we will have a robust economy like never before — OR WE LET THE BANKERS STEAL EVERYTHING !
     I was in about the third grade when the news was talking about the national debt and I asked my dad who do we owe money to and who could possibly be richer than the United States and where did they get the money? And then my dad took a gulp off his beer and said we owe it to our self !  I said that’s the dumbest thing I ever heard of that’s like borrowing from my right pocket and setting fire to the interest and putting the rest in my left pocket !  This was about 1972 !   And yes it really is this simple

  3. You don’t get to billionaire status by being a DA and missing opportunities to prosper
    Salinas understands this like a priest knows the presence of God

    It seems that humanity has three things embedded in its DNA

    1.  The ability for self deceit, lulling oneself into a stupor of confirmation bias.  That’s the province of the intellectualoids
    2.  The ability for self rationalization, lulling oneself into a stupor of normalcy bias.  That’s the province of Average Joe
    3.  The ability to see risk and take action before it happens.   That is the province of the stackers, whoever they are
    Average Joe has been dumbed down to a level that appears like a torpor.
    Whether it’s the media, TV, poor diet or just the slavery that reduce the average person to the intellect of a dray animal, Joe is going to have a really fast wake up. Going cold turkey will be ugly
    Many countries have had their time in the sun over the last 600 years.  Portugal, Spain, France, Germany and England shined once.  They were the BIG DEAL in the world.  None has a mouse fart of chance to regain their former glory.  They are done, spent and left on the side of the road.
    The US with its $15 billion GDP is still top dog despite its issue. It can print to infinity, aided and abetted by the also-rans.  China was once a big deal in its own realm and is printing to infinity; but with one main difference
    China is gathering the gold.  We are not.
    Whether we are stupid, ignorant of history or dulled down by the weight of history that works it toll on the foolish, greedy and unaware, tired like rented mules, this country will have a reckoning and reset.
    Our people are more or less unique. We can pull ourselves up by our bootstraps. The physical country is wealthy. The people are being drained of their wealth.  Sometimes you have to hit bottom to understand that your prior course was a bad one.  The fact is that nearly anyone can  change and pull themselves up.  That is the nature of us and the soul of the country.  But damn, the reset is going to be a bitch. As bad as it is now it will be a lulu when the real reset finally arrives. My plan is to have gold and silver ready for that day.
    As for the stackers, we may not always be the sharpest tools in the box but we have the genetic drive to know what is real and what is dross.  Now it’s a matter of waiting it out. Patience is the biggest skill we need to possess right at this time

    • You said it all in your first sentence @AGXIIK “GOD”    GOLD and SILVER are GOD’s Money and I have been told to Stack it and I AM.
      Salinas also said this in the beginning ” At the present time, the prospects for our project are poor, because the world “leaders” are really not independent men or women; they are under the control of their respective Central Bankers, who form an international fraternity whose leaders are the Fed, the IMF, and the BIS ” They are our enemies.  and Gold and Silver are our Survival.  Keep Stacking

    • Marchas states, “They are our enemies.”
      Yup, they sure are.  Paid-up sycophants, sociopaths, and psychopaths that plot against us on a daily basis.
      It is why we need to start thinking and preparing our own monetary systems for the post-collapse society – systems that are genuinely ground-up and based on monetary metal with the key variables of 1. Purity and 2. Weight.  None of this nominal value bullshit.  The theory of Hugo with silver depends upon a benevolent govt implementing some nominal value onto the metal – it won’t work as benevolent government is an oxymoron.
      Anyone from the UK?  Please read my thoughts on the topic:

      http://coppersterling.wordpress.com/

    • @Coppersterling I’m from the UK but live in the Sates and I was wondering why you don’t keep up your blog? Looks like it’s right up your alley, for me I would rather do a video as I can’t get the words out to print. Lol Keep Stacking

    • @Marchas45 Thanks, I did enjoy writing it.  Time constraints have hindered it along with the fact I can only have five posts on a free blog :-)  Seriously though, my wee man is now 17months old and so in the late part of pregnancy and since he’s made our world that much better, I’ve had less free time.  F/T JOB plus home = little spare time.
      What’s gonna happen north-of-the-border this September then?  (If society makes it that far, of course)

    • @Marchas45 From Westminster to Brussels, not much of an improvement :-)
      They should ‘do an Iceland’, but that’s doubtful.
      I’m from northern England, and I wish we’d tell Westminster to fuck off too LOL We could have Lancaster as our capital and return to fishing, farming, and use HEMP as our bio-fuel.
      PS Every country is full of sheep – not their fault in some ways, and in other ways it is.
      PPS Stacked some bargain .500 of late.  As you know VAT is a bitch this side of the pond so .500 off ebay is my usual method to stack.

    • I got into a discussion with friends over this last night. They think that the government is all knowing all seeing giver of money to keep them from ever going totally broke.  Out of 15 people I was the only one who had any silver and gold beyond simple jewelry that would be worth $100 at most. They don’t know how much I have and I was in no way going to volunteer that but when I showed them an ASE they were all like what is that? That is not real money, it is not worth anything… then I showed them the value of that ASE on my phone and they all still said no way is that worth that much money. Heads up Osama’s nether regions all of them. Glad they do not live in my town!

  4. “And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed, if all records told the same tale, then the lie became truth.” – George Orwell, 1984
    The dollar is backed only by faith, a belief of the lie imposed by the Fed. Now we’re caught in our own tangled web of lies. Only the truth can set us free.

    • “The dollar is backed only by faith, a belief of the lie imposed by the Fed.”
       
      Indeed.  We are, at long last, coming to the end of the road insofar as “the full faith and credit” of the USA is concerned.  Personally, I prefer HARD money that requires neither faith nor credit.  It is, instead, immediate payment in full of any and all debts.  It also is not subject to all the asinine games played by central banksters, always for their benefit and their member banks, but never for the citizens.  If humanity understood what these cretins were up to, they would all be hung at dawn… as in tomorrow.
       

    • If that annoyed me, I would just copy and paste the article into a word processor and put spaces / returns wherever I wanted them.
       

  5. @ Da yooper
    Yes, but it’s already a very big improvement for me (not native English) since I can easily understand written text (because I can take my time), but with much more difficulties (sometimes impossible) when it’s videos.
    So thanks SD for text interwiev.

  6. “Our leaders have chosen mass deceit as their instrument of power.”
     
    That IS the history of our species on the planet, now, isn’t it?  Countries, States, Religions, Dynasties, Tribes, Civilizations,  have all risen and fallen throughout history on that failing of leadership.
     
    Pity, as basically a social and, dare I say it, HERD species, the first thing we seem compelled to do in the collective role is to create a government and ‘annoint’ leaders….
     
    SSDC   — C = Century…

    • I would imagine the majority of the psychopaths that end-up working for the ‘one bank’, either through politics or in the ‘city’ or wall street have been hurt deeply at some point in their life.  Perhaps dumped dramatically by a loved-one, or left in some other way.  This created a basis for their psychopathic (read indifference to another’s suffering etc) tendencies to develop under the wing of the ‘one bank’.
      Do away with the ‘one bank’, and we have a better future ahead of us.  How? I really dunno, hopefully its cancerous tendencies will cause it to eat itself!

  7. Its actually an enemy of the introduction of the NWO that has been in progress. An its time to come into the worlds new laws they have to get all the governments to agree on this new system of government. Say wipe the slate clean. Meaning all governments default on there debts. And start out with a new one world new dollar. An what is best to wipe the slate clean a major world wide stock market crash. I also believe the governments around the world are crying wolf saying there broke. All this QE money they have has never reached the economy. They are just using bonding there own treasuries with it. There all waiting for some them a market crash, earthquake, fukichima , its strange?

    • Now that all the Industry is teched up and requires less labor … especially farming … the plan is to herd every body onto big cities and then Gulag them all. Look at China, they’re all leaving perfectly good farm land where they could grow their own food so that they can go live in a slum mega city and pay top dollar for rubbish food … get to live in heavy smog, and work 70hr weeks if they can find a job whilst their manufacturing sector is dying because the Chinese stopped buying US Treasury Toilet Paper.
      Doesn’t take a genius to see that China will soon be operation some of the biggest dirtiest Gulags the world has ever seen. The implosion started for real on 9/11/2001 when the Synarchy created the War on Terror. It is simply a War on Humanity, to be waged for eternity (if, they get their own way, which I very much doubt they will. They’re all so crooked they could never trust each other because every one of them wants to be top dog)

    • @WillNotBeASlave
      That sentence, “They’re all so crooked they could never trust each other because every one of them wants to be top dog” is extremely important, and I totally agree.  They will collaborate up to a point and then turn on each other like the untrusting and untrustworthy vile filth that they are.
      I recall one summer whilst an undergraduate I worked on a tomato farm that employed some organic methods.  I was asked one day to put a type of spider on the top (because I was the tallest), and told the spiders would eat the aphid on the plants.  I asked, “what will happen to the spiders then?”, and was informed that once the aphids had been eaten the spiders would commence eating each other till only one was left (which would then die of starvation).
      We are the aphids, the ‘elite’ are the spiders, and the tomato plant is the plantation.  We need to get out/leave the plantation/matrix world we live in and watch from afar as these cancerous bastards ‘eat’ each other.

    • @coppersterling
      nice analogy. If only there was a bug spray :) Perhaps the Truth is the bug spray … too bad the 99% of the aphids are too ignorant to even see the Spiders until it is too late. I hate to say that as I’m not full of myself, but I have told many people of the problems but they simply look at me like I have two heads … a ‘crazy’ person … and then they go to the Sales and trample all over people for cheap chinese made consumer goods.
      That movie Idiocracy comes to mind. It’s such a shame that people are so brainwashed and careless.

    • @WillNotBeASlave
       
      “I have told many people of the problems but they simply look at me like I have two heads … a ‘crazy’ person”
       
      Indeed you are, for you have given them an idea that exceeds the volume of their brain and they do not know what to do with the excess.  ;-)
       
      Thinking is the hardest work there is.  Perhaps that is why so few engage in it“.  -  Henry Ford
       

  8. “The problem is fundamentally a moral problem. Is political power to be based on Reality, or on systematic deceit of the populations of the world? Our leaders have chosen mass deceit as their instrument of power. What they will obtain will be utter chaos and disorder, and mass impoverishment.”
     
    And yet, it is quite likely that they are well aware of this and are choosing to go forward with it anyway.  The only rational conclusion I can make is that this is part of their plan and that none of that misery will accrue to them, only to the rest of us.  Perhaps this is because they have reached their Col. Jessup moment and know in their heart of hearts that we simply “can’t handle the truth“.  A pleasant sounding lie is infinitely more seductive than the painful truth.  “Don’t tell us the truth”, they baaaa’d, “just whisper sweet nothings in our ears”.
     
    “You cannot get around the realities of life successfully, no matter how brilliant you are. The graduates of the great universities of the world, do not agree; they think they are qualified to run the world according to their brilliant ideas.”
     
    The Soviets believed that they could command the economy to do whatever they wished.  They were no more realistic than these central bankers.  They too shall fail and for pretty much the same reason… their intellectual reality and the real world do not intersect.
