We all know too many out of work folks now for sure. Especially hard hit are those at or approaching middle age. These are the very same people that just in the last few years had promising jobs and put their savings into beautiful homes that they have lost or are losing.
Americans can’t afford to keep their children in college or spend money their neighborhood businesses need to keep their doors open. Resumes are everywhere but jobs have dried up.
Lots of foolish People with jobs are still spending with the blind faith that somehow things will be better soon. They can’t or won’t face the inevitable reality of the financial collapse of the free world.
Law firms everywhere are seeing their clients retainers evaporate and but for debtor’s lawyers the legal industry is getting to the breaking point. Criminal law is slowing down because financial resources are drying up and cases are quietly not being prosecuted.
People are getting desperate as their worlds and businesses are crashing under the strain. It is just a matter of time before the shanty towns and soup kitchens are everywhere.
This depression has been carefully engineered from the beginning to destroy the free market and economy of America and any country that allows free enterprise.
I subscribe to the fact that what’s past is prologue. When nations are under these dire straits we have holocausts perpetrated by government. Soon it will all be about seizing private property as the spoils and eliminating consumers that compete for food, medical care, shelter and fuel. The target will be the middle class.
The days of wealth distribution are here and it will be a lot of things but equitable won’t be one of them. Might, will make right. This depression will be more violent and prolonged than we can imagine.
People will die from starvation and a lack of common medications needed to treat diabetes, high blood pressure and routine infections. I fear that soon we will smell the stench of the bodies of our neighbors and loved ones burning in landfills. Only the strong will survive.
One day things will calm down and cities will be rebuilt as the winners of this conflict will write the history books. What form of government survives, remains to be seen.
Okay, I want someone, anyone to tell me why I’m wrong and everything will be just fine. I base my sad prediction on the reality of the past. I want to be so wrong about this.
