Sociopathic Buffoons Running Amok
These country club CEOs and their management lackeys are hardcore sociopaths. They've impoverished millions without even the slightest twinge of guilt. They turned the economy into a zero sum game to their own overwhelming personal benefit and in the process turned their companies into call options. Most of them were hatched in Ivy League schools which generated the text book alchemy that gives the all-important specious stamp of approval to this entire fucking fiasco. Harvard et. al. must never be questioned, no matter how self-destructive are their ideas.
Like HFTs in the stock market, the corporate special interests front-run the public at the polling booth by buying both/all parties ahead of time. The game show hosts in politics with % approval ratings hovering near single digits, bear the brunt of the public frustration while the puppet masters remain out of view. The Lost Boys of the Idiocracy and various other complicit stooges rail away at "evil government" in faux outrage, while the special interest groups who direct all government actions remain fully intact and unquestioned.
Those of us corporatized slaves, accept the Fed's debased dollars without any form of rebellion, because as a society we've been bred for docility. The corporate hierarchy is the ultimate passive aggressive breeding ground. Still, some of us know that the special interest groups closest to the printing press benefit at our expense. And those who understand deflation know that this is all just a smoke screen to cover up the ongoing collapse of the real economy. Once that smoke screen lifts, the fully hollowed out devastation will be revealed for all to see.
