Only a few people understand what the federal reserve is doing to americans. Others are trying to get their investments lined up to profit. Some weakly say the Fed is creating ‘moral hazard’.
No, what the Fed has been and is currently doing is destroying people’s lives. People you know…people you love…have had their lives destroyed because of counterfeit fiat currency.
This destruction is subtle, yet ever present. Take inflation – prices rise, faster than wages, impoverishing a people over time. Wage inflation destroys jobs…by making foreign labor cheaper…thus the 30+ years of offshoring and loss of american jobs.
Take the synthetic boom bust business cycle, which determine winners and losers based on fed policy. How can one make long term business decisions based on the actions of political apparatchiks? They can’t…most business decisions are but guesswork now…will the fed raise rates, lower rates, pump in more money, let it collapse? Who knows. Business becomes a grab-whatever-you-can frenzy in the short run.
Take asset prices rising as an example, crushing the young…who have few assets, but must pay evermore to buy them.
People deciding to get married or not…have families or not…start businesses…the millions of seemingly small decisions being made every day based on corrupted data. People’s lives are molded by the economic circumstances of the times…and when they have to make decisions based on corrupt data it creates a weakness in the decisions.
Many hold out hope that some great crash is going to happen, and after the crash the wrongs can be righted…a society based on sound money can be created. But they are missing the point. The crash happened 100+ years ago…and the destruction has been ongoing ever since. These decisions made on bad data, manifest into our american culture. Such is why and how our culture has been hollowed out, and made weak and flabby.
These comments from zerohedge give a glimpse into the destruction caused by the fed:
Tedstr wrote: “My daughter broke her lease last week and is moving home. Hard worker trying to get some kind of career going. Totally lost now.”
Vtec: “im a millenial and i have an okay paying job (for now..) and i just moved home as well. things are going to get lot worse before they get better. the elites know our whole way of life is not sustainable and are just demolishing it“
What Vtec doesn’t understand is that a great way of life is sustainable, but that way of life must be built on the things which allow for long term greatness – the teachings of Jesus Christ, individual and economic freedom, and money that cannot be counterfeited.
Hotrod: “I know lets go back to 2008 and anyone thats been damaged by some economic financial cluster **** will be made whole. My entire life got ****** back then and never recovered and I WANT SOME MONEY TOO.“
Space-Peanut: “This is for you, Dad.
I remember when the housing collapse sent a torpedo through my family. My father’s concrete company collapsed almost overnight. My father lost his home. My uncle lost his home. I remember my brother helping my father count pocket change on our kitchen table. That was all the money he had left in the world. While this was happening in my home, I saw hedge funders literally drinking champagne as they looked down on the Occupy Wall Street protestors. I will never forget that.
My Father never recovered from that blow. He fell deeper and deeper into alcoholism and exists now as a shell of his former self, waiting for death.
This is all the money I have and I’d rather lose it all than give them what they need to destroy me. Taking money from me won’t hurt me, because i don’t value it at all. I’ll burn it all down just to spite them.
This is for you, Dad.“
The political actions have now warped society so drastically that not 1 in 100 can see what has happened. But more are waking up daily. They see the apparatus is not set up to benefit them, but to enslave them. They see the people around them with less free time…growing poorer…with little freedom or power…subject to whatever the government wishes to do to him.
How long will they pull the yoke?
