Good interview. Clif High puts out the popular monthly predicative webbot report (HERE.) Clif talks the state of affairs with the powers-that-were and the election, the deflationary [shock] event coming down the road in 2017, the ending of Central Bank monetary authority, the masses waking up their shenanigans; the credit freeze with its spill over effects: interrupted supply chains, banks closing their doors, home foreclosures, and then some.
What happened in the Soviet Union is what will occur in the US. [On that note, I would recommend this book: The Five Stages of Collapse: Survivors’ Toolkit, by Dmitry Orlov
He describes what happened in the Soviet Union as the social and political structures broke down:
Stage 1: Financial collapse. Faith in “business as usual” is lost.
Stage 2: Commercial collapse. Faith that “the market shall provide” is lost.
Stage 3: Political collapse. Faith that “the government will take care of you” is lost.
Stage 4: Social collapse. Faith that “your people will take care of you” is lost.
Stage 5: Cultural collapse. Faith in “the goodness of humanity” is lost
Worth a listen for the broad-stroke details.
