Bounding Into the Abyss

The Idiocracy has no clue this is all ending. They have no idea that the vector is down, and has been for seven years. Because there's no one to tell them. They don't trust anyone who can be trusted. Plausible deniability is the opiate of the stoned masses. "This" is all "cyclical"...

Information overload is taken as an excuse to ignore reality aka. "Too much information". Data mining is the order of the day: Cherry picking meager counter-factuals to support the most delusional outcomes while assiduously avoiding any and all difficult questions. Assuming all variables are discrete and uncorrelated.  

Above all, never question the status quo. Never question whether or not Globalization is working, despite the fact that it has already failed.

"By 2016, the global 1% will have more wealth than everyone else combined...inequality has reached shocking extremes, and continues to grow."

Jan. 21, 2014 Daily Beast at Davos
"Even the high and mighty assembling at the Swiss resort recognize, now, that grotesque inequality is the greatest threat to world peace. Their answer: Party on!" 

2013: UN Commission on Trade and Development
"Five years after the onset of the global financial crisis the world economy remains in a state of disarray Prior to the Great Recession, buoyant consumer demand in the developed countries seemed to justify the adoption of an export-oriented growth model by many developing and transition economies. But that expansion was built on unsustainable global demand and financing patterns. Thus, reverting to pre-crisis growth strategies cannot be an option

There exists no common narrative. Everyone is supposed to individually piece together untold millions of pieces of information to determine the vector for this clusterfuck. While at the same time drowning out non-stop official happy talk and propaganda. The Obamanator & Company blowing smoke up our asses constantly. We're always one more "stimulus" program away from success. We just need more stimulation. 

Optimism is a bias. 90% of the time it contributes to successful outcomes and economic expansion. 

10% of the time it wipes you off the fucking map...
