RANT: What have we to show for 15 years of war?

So, what have we to show for 15 years of war?

Our currency – and with it our morality — is being destroyed. Paper money fiat – which is being created at a record pace to fund the wars and prop up the phony economic recovery — is directly the foundation of Machiavellian mentality.

Government printing press money distorts economic reality, dilutes morality and is the true source of “income inequality.” Financial speculation rises with the increase in paper money and the general work ethic deteriorates. The something-for-nothing mentality pervades society.

Paper money promotes the “quick buck” syndrome like narcotics peddling and hookers on the streets. Hookers, incidentally, were widespread in the Weimar Republic in Germany in 1923 because the women had to sell their bodies for food for themselves and their families.

In a paper money society, the social order visibly deteriorates. The morality of the stable gold standard gradually changes to the amorality of fiat. Few people see the cause and effect, and the politicians try to legislate human behavior. They always fail, as the system is overrun with jails and prisons.

An unlimited supply of paper money buys sophisticated arms that create fear and the propaganda to manipulate the people against their personal freedom and best interest. Fiat paper money is tyranny or becomes tyranny. It guarantees criminal government.

Paper money, personal freedom and privacy are incompatible. Paper money centralizes power to the state and diminishes the individual. This is the first cause of all you see happening. All modern wars are paper money wars. Paper money pays the politicians their lavish profligacy, and they keep their mouths shut about the fiat system.

A lot!

The worst lost is the sense of American exceptionalism.

And, the moral authority from WW2 has been squandered by politicians and bureaucrats.

At the end of WW2, America was beloved around the world.

Then, little by little, drip by drip, it was squandered by the politicians and bureaucrats.

Enabled by the FED and Crony Capitalists, everything was stolen.

They talk about the Clinton’s taking the White House dishes and all the W’s from keyboards, “we” lost so much more.

How do we recover it?

IMHO, it’s restore “honest money”, balance the budget in REAL terms, and come to grips with the debt.

First step is to bring home all the girls and boys from these overseas “adventures”.

Getting our own house in order is priority one!
