The Crash in Government
by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics
To set the record ABSOLUTELY straight, the “C R A S H” we see on the horizon is by NO MEANS the private sector and the stock market. It seems just using the word “crash” leads people to assume we are talking about another stock market crash. Interestingly, inaccurate reports have said that I have said that were will be a “stock market crash” rather than a “crash in government” which explains the problem that we face – they assume government will be there forever. The contrast between the view of LIBERTY of the 18th century, compared to the cycle inversion of LIBERTY as expressed by Obama, says it all. This is no longer about the people and freedom, this is all about government maintaining power, for it feels that scepter of power slipping from their hands.
This is similar to what they said about the Romans. When Rome fell to the barbarians, the Romans were still laughing as they watched their sports and games. We ignore government as a society; therein lies our doom. Politicians realize they can be as corrupt as they desire since, for only government can prosecute them, and the press is in their back pocket while selling their own personal futures down the drain. Just look at the onslaught of press coming out now, declaring cash is evil and now is the time to abolish it. This illustrates that they are part of the problem, for they are the propaganda wing of government.
There is no one in our corner to defend our liberty. The collapse is inevitable. We cannot stop what is about to unfold. It is very disheartening to watch the press join government in ushering in our own demise, as they laugh at the pubs after wiping out their own future. Zeus may have been the supreme leader of the gods to the Greeks, but even he could not judge someone upon death. All Zeus could do was give his recommendation to the Three Fates, whose duty it was to judge mankind. In this respect, we are subject to fate, for this is just inevitable.
