I’m reading The Great Depression: A Diary right now and it’s resonating with me to keep notes of external events alongside personal notes of the journey. They seem worth sharing, if anything, as either commentary on current events, or as “time capsule” writings to go back and read at some future point in time.
I also figure that it probably wouldn’t be a bad thing to share with the readership a little bit about the myself, the author.
Either way, enjoy.
Bitcoin is. Metals are. War on cash picks up steam. India ELIMINATED the 500 and 1000 rupee bill (like under 20 dollars, I think.***) I see a headline about Citibank branches that will not accept cash. (To which my answer is: good. Don’t give it to them anyway. Keep it for personal use, assuming we’ll be able to, during a GFR.) Banks are clearing their liabilities in quick order. In what had been once every several months has turned into once a week, all of a sudden. It feeds into the narrative of a GFR in 1st quarter 2017. TGD:AD is turning into an interesting read; you see the details behind what people did during events that are usually described in one-sentence generalizations (of which I’m guilty of having done over the years.) ex: “Private ownership of gold was banned.” Well, it’s not as straight-forward as that.
The “Fake News” meme has taken hold among progressives as the new rally-cry topic. (Social Justice Warrior burned itself out in its ridiculousness.) Until those people begin to assume more self-responsibility for their own thoughts and don’t let themselves fall for whatever narrative that they “think” they’re supposed to follow.
***side note- on Simon Parkes’ CC 12/4 interview, he points out that this move really was done to undercut the crime syndicate-heavy black market, which did not come from directives of the global bankers. Take it for what it’s worth.
