MIDDLE CLASS FACING EXTINCTION!
What is real money? What does money really represent? I’ll tell you what no one else will, money is only a substitute for physical trade. And physical trade is an exchange of goods or services resulting from physical labor and sweat to survive. So, when you just print worthless money out of thin air you break the chain to physical survival. The effects and dire consequences just take a while to catch up.
Physical survival? Yep! That is the dire consequence in question when there is a lack of food. Sure, it is a must to have manufacturing to produce modern weapons for national security. However, food is the first priority for survival and without it nothing else matters. I believe mass starvation is going to be the main consequence resulting from printing all of this worthless money.
Right now if anything, the government should be promoting and encouraging small farming and home gardening, nothing else is going to prevent mass starving in the near future. I know no one is actually listening and view me as being off my rocker, but time will be the final judge on the matter, not you, or me.
I keep hearing how the printing presses are humming and printing out tons and tons of crisp new dollars. So, I decided to weigh in and analyze the ramification of printing so much money. Okay, lets say the government has all of this money, what is the purpose and how will this affect the economy. I am a creative thinker and here is my take on how this is going to play out.
The economy consist of only two players, a seller (merchant) and a Buyer (consumer) no matter how modern and advanced it may be. To an economy the government is a parasite, but a necessary parasite. Every society must have a government for protection. When government gets involved in the inner working of a free market place economy it destroys the natural selection balance between the merchant and the consumer. And once that balanced is destroyed the economy is never going to work right.
There are simply too many variables; my guess is as good as any economist. The economy is only one leg of the survival stool. You can’t ignore the nuclear family, the culture, the capacity to barter and ever truly understand economics, I don't care who you are, it is impossible. Wise leaders of old knew this and would never have created this welfare state beast. Mass amounts of paper money or currency are mostly a modern tool or leg added to the survival stool.
The American Indian and many other societies survived for thousands of years without money. We have become fixated with tunnel vision only on money to survive, which is impossible in the long run. We seem to becoming almost totally a materialist people. Get a grip America. Sure, money is a good thing and a great advantage in a modern society, but, if you want your society to be around for centuries you better have some emergency fallback bartering capacity left in place.
Otherwise when the rebirth cycle comes around it is back to the Stone Age. There is no life or nothing in existence that doesn’t have a rebirth cycle at some point. It should be this way, how else can all of the moral and other decay be purged. The negative anti-survival threats will become too powerful for a civilize society to exist. Look at our culture now; it is already almost totally upside down.
The thing about government is it has the big guns, and the hardest thing in the world is to retain the power in the hands of the people.
The constitution was supposed prevent an all powerful government, but I'm afraid the liberal has created far too many dependent to put a damper on reckless spending or any sanity. Here is my prediction on how this money is going to be spent. Everyone receiving a government check or food stamps is going to get a raise. There will be mass new construction and all kinds of new social spending programs.
There will be all kind of new hidden taxes and fees, plus green regulations. With all of this going on the merchants will be force to raise their price even higher to cover the added cost. The merchants will get away with raising their prices because the government subsidizes enough people with checks and food stamps to keep them in business. But its not the merchants fault, they have to pay all kinds of high taxes, licenses, and fees.
So, what is the problem, what is wrong with this picture? I’ll tell you, it’s like scratching your head when your toe is itching. Nothing is done to try to rein in the “Galloping cost of living and the dwindling buying power of the dollar” which is really what’s destroying the economy. The middle class is going to be destroyed almost to the point of extinction. The only thing that can rein in the cost of living is a draconian reduction in taxes and government spending. God save America.
