END OF AN EMPIRE

Roman highway
Let's not try to address a subject this complex and multifaceted with a perfunctory blog post. The picture is enough. Rome built an incredible network of highways and bridges connecting its vast empire. This one tells you just how any man-made tributes survive nature. We're in the process of seeing a decay, a rot, an absolute disintegration of a once monumental experiment in modern democracy. Of course if you ask the pleebs in the empire, simple responses echoing the corporate media will be given such as we need to protect our freedoms....or we have the greatest military in the world......or they hate our values......and on and on......why bore you........by now you've heard it all many time and either get it or you never will.

The money printing holds the whole system in place and as long as the fragile links between the Western corporatocracies and East hold together then the system may grind further along. The problem is the East is no supporter of the West and they (the East) are very patient in assisting the West in its own demise. Eventually the petro dollar will have to be destroyed since CONfidence cannot be restored without its destruction.  By restoring true confidence then structural collapses can finally be addressed. Until then we will only be whistling past the graveyard.

How do you clean the slate and start anew? Many ways short of all out Global War can be the simple answer. Unfortunately the simple answer has some very major obstacles in its way. Morality is the biggest obstacle. We have managed to allow ourselves to devolve into a modern day Gomorrah. No one seems affected now by calmly discussing Drone executions of American citizens without a trial or torture, or indefinite imprisonment without a trial or even charges......just dissappear um.........not even a whimper.....

Now back to gold and silver.......more chop ahead probably but does it matter??????? These pigs are gonna fly......gl all  just make sure you don't wind up on the road always traveled...it may be the wrong one.

  5. Thanks Tom...as a student of history, I couldn't agree more. We have no "real" freedom. Just as a simple example, the airport is where it is so obvious. Last trip, a lady in front of me was in a wheelchair with a cast on her leg which had to be searched. Her husband said, "only in America". Sadly, he's right. And look at the disappearance of the stagflation (must currently be a revolutionary word) thread!
