. . . a new despotism creeping slowly across America. Faceless oligarchs sit at command posts of a corporate-government complex that has been slowly evolving over many decades. In efforts to enlarge their own powers and privileges, they are willing to have others suffer the intended or unintended consequences of their institutional or personal greed. For Americans, these consequences include chronic inflation, recurring recession, open and hidden unemployment, the poisoning of air, water, soil and bodies, and, more important, the subversion of our constitution. More broadly, consequences include widespread intervention in international politics through economic manipulation, covert action, or military invasion…–Bertram Gross, 1980
Yes, the globalists have succeeded. If I had to choose among Bertam’s missives, I would say that inflation will finally do in the “unsustainable” United States. The dollar will crack like an egg in any bond sell-off. Or in the famous words of Humpty Dumpty, “All the Kings horses and all the King’s men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again.” And the faux financialized economy will be no more. About here I would expect the big grin of the Cheshire Cat to appear.
