Current economic policies cause domestic genocide

Governments around the world are still screaming that economic activity is causing “global warming” and we must consume less or we face a dystopian future full of rising water and blustery gales.  But when we actually do what they say we must do, and consume less, that’s suddenly really really bad.  They call it “hoarding cash”.  This, for some unknown reason, despite being what they wanted to “cure” the global warming menace, is somehow all of a sudden “wrong” – and prompts the government to push us into bizarre wasteful Keynesian policies like cash for clunkers, where perfectly good cars were deliberately destroyed and put in landfill to encourage spending.  I wonder how much cash for clunkers contributed to global warming by encouraging wasteful steel production and wasteful economic activity when perfectly good second hand cars were trashed for no reason whatsoever other than to encourage “spending” and excessive consumption to keep “economic activity” (and, presumably, taxes) staggering on a like a zombie.

Now governments around the world are stealing trillions in savings from pensioners, the middle class, the working poor, and putting it directly into the hands of already-rich bankers.

Surprise, surprise: now the bulk of the populace – the working class and middle class – don’t have the money or the incentive to grow families because of these parasitic insane policies.  Governments are starting to panic about the collapsing tax base and starting to implement equally crazy policies trying to encouraging people to fornicate and populate.

All these problems – excessive consumption, wasteful misallocation of resources, depressions, impoverishment of the general populace, low birth rates – all these have one common cause: government interfering, government tinkering, government taking over the production of money, government banning competition in currencies (gold and silver have been confiscated by governments since the 1930s).

Hey Mr Politician – You screw me, I kill my own babies so they are not screwed by you in future.

That’s effectively what millions of people are doing in Japan and Western Europe.  Through voluntary birth control they are making the active decision not to submit to being financial slaves, and not allowing their unborn children to be corralled into being the next generation of financial slaves.

This is, effectively, “voluntary” financially and economically-induced domestic genocide.

Only in 100 years will people work out what’s happened.  By then it will be too late.

Do you doubt me?

See this article here:

The thing that many of these countries have in common, Japan, Denmark, etc., is a rapidly declining birthrate.

A declining birthrate is disastrous for an economy, particularly for an ageing place like Japan.

Ironically, the oldest person in the world turned 117 years old yesterday—and no surprise that she’s Japanese. In fact, Japan is home to one of the oldest populations in the world and has one of the longest life expectancies.

Curiously they also have one of the largest pension programs in the world. You put all that together and you have fewer and fewer young people paying more and more of their income to support a disproportionately large population of retirees who are living for decades after they stop working.

Each one of these governments is trying to find a solution to fix this unsustainable fiscal problem.

In Denmark they seem to think that people aren’t going on vacation enough. In Japan they think it’s a problem of sexual desire. But in actuality it has everything to do with cost of living.

Month to month, year to year, it’s hard to notice the subtle changes in costs of living and standards of living, but after a long period of time it’s easy to look back and remember how things used to be.

You used to be able to support a family on a single income. You used to be able to afford medical care and higher education.

It’s often said that the greatest expense that someone will have in their life is his or her home. That’s total nonsense.

Now, I’m not saying it’s not worth it, but the biggest expense most people will have is family, and particularly children.

And after years and years of suffering through pitiful, destructive policies that have chronically made people less prosperous, it’s no surprise that they’re coming to the conclusion—you know, we can’t really afford to have a child right now.

There are consequences to conjuring money out of thin air. There are consequences to destructive policies.

So destructive in fact that central bankers and politicians even have the power to make a population disappear.

How ironic that they try to fix their own problem by trying to introduce themselves into our bedrooms.

Food contamination

I have been predicting economically-induced food debasement and food contamination problems throughout the Western world for at least three years, on this very blog.  Indeed, just in recent months!

And now Australia has been hit – shock horror! – with a major food contamination scare involving Hepatitis A in imported frozen berries from China.  Why?  Apparently because Chinese businesses are trying to “save money” by putting human faeces directly into soil used for growing food!  Yum YUM!

Unsurprisingly this isn’t a good idea from a food hygiene/food contamination perspective.

See here and here.

No one predicted these kinds of issues arising in Australia.  No one points out this is inevitable due to perverse incentives embedded within our current monetary and economic system.  These things apparently just “fall from the sky” as random events.

That’s complete bullshit.  I predicted them here on these pages.  There will be more scandals and crises.  It is inevitable.  It is part of the monetary system.  It is part of the perverse incentives inherent in a system that produces paper-pushers and computer desk jockeys trading paper rather than encouraging (and providing reasonable financial returns to) real people producing real stuff (like real food).

David Graeber calls this the glorification of do-nothing paper shuffling and I agree.

When you have this kind of completely screwed up monetary system there will inevitably be created more and more psycho-nerd autistic bankers on the one hand, and fewer and fewer real, caring farmers on the other.

These are economic problems with economic causes and economic solutions, not random events or problems amenable to political solutions.

Solve the money problem and you solve resource allocation problems and you solve the food crisis.  That crisis is here.  And it’s going to get much, much worse.

In the madness that is locked in to the stupidity of the mainstream, no one can hear you scream.

I know correlation isn’t causation, but do these graphs look suspiciously similar to you?
