Perspektiv På Framtiden – Charles Hugh Smith

Charles Hugh Smith från Of Two Minds har skrivit lite om problemen vi står inför i dag och hur framtiden skulle kunna te sig: A Little Perspective on What Lies Ahead.

Det är viktiga problem han tar upp. Så som att systemet vi har i dag är i grunden fel. Att ta bort TPTB som ex. The Fed & ECB inte löser våra direkta problem; vi har fortfarande lika mycket skulder kvar som vi måste ta itu med.

Vidare lyfter han fram vad jag anser är pudelns kärna. Även om systemet är konstruerat fel i grunden så är ändå alla beroende av det. En mans skuld är en annan mans tillgångar. I slutändan står vi oss själva närmast. Det går inte att ta sig ur denna situation på ett enkelt sätt. Bälte på.

The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

A Little Perspective on What Lies Ahead
Eliminating Elites won’t eliminate our structural problems or the reduction in phantom wealth we’ve all been relying on.
Many finance-oriented critiques start from the position that our problems largely stem from the financial/political dominance of Elitist cartels and cabals. Clearly, the malinvestment, exploitation, predation and disregard for the law that characterizes the rule of political-financial Elites in both developed and developing nations have wreaked havoc on societies and economies around the globe.

Implicit in this critique is a dangerously naive assumption: if all our problems can be traced back to Elitist cabals such as the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank, then it follows that the subjugation or eradication of these concentrations of self-serving power would remove the cause of our problems.
