The beneath is a direct excerpt of Marty’s Bent Issue #1120: “They have made plunder the norm.” Sign up for the newsletter here.
In case you could not inform, we’re dwelling via a little bit of a societal decay in the mean time. And if we’re being brutally trustworthy with ourselves, we have most likely been dwelling via a little bit of a societal decay for many years, it is simply way more apparent in the mean time. There are a lot of variables that led to the present frayed society that appears misplaced and considerably determined. We will level to the cash printing, a media and political class that appear hell bent on sowing division, a mixture of complacency and apathy, and quite a few different components.
Nonetheless, there’s a frequent issue beneath all these components that has created an setting the place societal decay is inevitable. Moreover, this frequent issue is one thing that man has identified about for hundreds of years and we’ve got been warned to keep away from by nice thinkers all through historical past; when these on the prime of the financial/energy construction do not dwell by the identical guidelines as these beneath them it can result in an inevitable societal and ethical collapse as these beneath the higher rungs of the facility construction turn out to be aware about the unfairness of the system.
Within the wake of the 2008 monetary disaster the truth that we dwell in a two-tiered society damaged up right into a ruling class and its cronies who can plunder with little to no repercussions and the remainder of us who shouldn’t have that skill. Or ought to I say, did not have that skill. It appears that evidently we have reached some extent the place a few of the “have nots” have had sufficient of watching the members of the ruling class run amok and are deciding to get what they understand to be their fair proportion. This sentiment and observe up motion is changing into pervasive in cities across the nation which have neutered their police departments and determined to not prosecute petty crimes like theft. It has turn out to be more and more in style for flash mobs to run into shops and completely ransack them with none concern of repercussions.
It appears that evidently plunder turned such an entrenched lifestyle for the ruling class within the US — as is evidenced by many years of the Fed’s skill to benefit from the Cantillon impact, politicians profiting from insider buying and selling and subsidy grifts, and the media whoring itself out to self-interested advertisers like Large Pharma on the expense of their viewers — that plunder is changing into approved by our authorized system catering to an more and more immoral society that favors clout chasing, extra and self-importance over advantage.
With that being mentioned, there are many examples on the contrary. There are a lot of on the market who acknowledge the injustice that exists and growing depravity that’s changing into pervasive in our society and have gotten extra vocal. Calling for a return of regulation an order, a restructuring of the inducement video games the ruling class is at present profiting from, and a return to logic. These individuals are on the market and their numbers are rising, however they do not appear as influential as these nonetheless useless set on persevering with the plunder… but.
As we have mentioned many occasions on this rag during the last two years, it feels as if we’re at an important juncture. We will proceed to spiral into full decay by furthering the normalization of plunder, taking our society right into a darker and darker state. Or, we will encourage robust males to face up, name out the plunder, and DEMAND that these plundering are dropped at justice.
In a approach, entering into Bitcoin is an motion that will get us nearer to justice. By opting right into a cash that’s constructed on Proof of Work as a substitute of Proof of Proximity to the financial spigot that permits plunder, people the world over are standing up, calling out that plunder vocally or silently, and voting with their resolution to retailer their wealth in a a lot fairer system that makes a Cantillon-style plunder unattainable. Let’s hope increasingly more folks opt-in to this technique in order that we will shorten the darkness.
