Headline news, “the Fed announced today that inflation is under control”. How many times have we heard this crap on some radio top of hour “news” summary, or seen it in a headline in some propaganda rag? What I find funny is that, when the fed announces that inflation is under control they are technically telling the truth. They just don’t mean what you think they mean. They don’t mean that inflation is not a problem. They don’t mean that inflation is not slowly and imperceptibly destroying your standard of living while they “legally steal” year after year. They mean that the inflation is under control… their control.
“Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money.” (Josiah Stamp, former head of the Bank of England, said at an informal talk at the University of Texas in the 1920s)
People have been so completed habituated, through school, and media of every type, to the concept that prices naturally and slowly go up over time, and that “inflation is a good thing”, that people actually believe it. It is easy to fool the people because they don’t even know what “causes” inflation. And the people don’t know because their overlords make sure that the edjumakation system, which our overlords also control and require you attend through the force of law, intentionally provides disinformation on money and inflation instead of real information. (George Carlin knew all about it.
“There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.” John Maynard Keynes
The “smartest guys in the room” on talk shows, wearing stupid bow ties and pretending they actually get laid, always talk as though deflation is some boogey man to be avoided at all costs.
I ask a simple question, exactly how would YOU be harmed if prices stayed the same or, heaven forbid, came down? You wouldn’t be. And the fact that you have probably NEVER even thought about that issue demonstrates the insidious nature of the lie.
They make sure people never THINK outside the narrow parameters they are given. People just mindlessly run around saying, “well we have to have some inflation, it’s good for the economy.” I just laugh. They might as well believe that they now know how to satisfy their man since they just finished reading “the top ten things guys want in bed but won’t tell you” article in People. It is all fantasy.
The people get their “information” about what inflation is from the very people who benefit from the very inflation they create. And the information people have on inflation, is about as reliable as the top 10 things they just found out about what “guys want”. Only they don’t know that the top 10 things was written by either a group of women who don’t even have bf’s or a couple of gay guys. And THAT article would still end up being more accurate than the nonsense the brainwashed masses have been fed on inflation, banking and the economy.
Don’t believe me? Just ask somebody, why is a small amount of “inflation” “good for the economy”? They’ll look at you as though you have questioned why you need to breathe. They will deflect and discuss how they are not experts, or how “you wouldn’t understand” if they claim to be an expert. They will give you anything but an actual simple rational answer to the question. The reason they can’t answer it is not just because they don’t know, or even because they don’t even know they don’t know. The reason they can’t give a simple straight forward answer to the question that makes any sense is because there is no rational reason for why there “needs to be a small amount of Inflation”. Except that it serves our overlords. And thus, the brainwashed masses run around talking about how we need a “small amount of inflation to help the economy”. (Enjoy this clip on the power of brainwashing, where “Landru” was just repeated and followed mindlessly.)
There is no reason why a world where prices were generally static to declining wouldn’t be just as good or better. But people mindlessly repeat what they have heard. Just like they mindlessly repeat what they have read in People. That is the very definition of brainwashing, and that of course is exactly what has happened to virtually the entire population. People have been so fully immersed in a make believe world their whole lives they simply accept the statement as though it is a tautology. When the reality is that it makes no sense at all.
The simple reality is that despite what 90% or more of the inmates here think, “rising prices” are not what “causes” inflation. Inflation is, for all practical purposes, nothing more than printing dollars out of thin air, in other words, they inflate the amount of currency that is in circulation. That printing reduces the BUYING POWER of the dollars in circulation. As a result, it takes more dollars to buy the same amount of goods or services since everyone “has more dollars”, and thus prices “rise”. The EFFECT of prices rising, is what our overlords want everyone to think is the actual EVENT or CAUSE of “inflation” and thus, they put in motion the necessary disinformation, and brainwashing delivery systems in order to accomplish their goal.
Think of it this way, if tomorrow, everyone in the U.S. of A, suddenly had 2 zeros added to their bank accounts would we all be any “richer”? Of course not, prices would all rise to account for this fact. Nobody would be “rich”, a “value meal” would simply be repriced to be $99.00 instead of 99 cents. That is the SAME thing that happens with so called “inflation”. It just takes a couple of decades to happen so people don’t notice it. It isn’t complicated.
Well, you might ask, if that’s the case Legalman, then how does inflation even hurt us? Simple, the “inflation” is not evenly distributed immediately. The EFFECT of price rises is not instantaneous. It takes time to work its way through the economy. So the people who “get the money” first in their bank accounts, get the FULL benefit of the extra money’s purchasing power, as though the new money didn’t exist yet. Because the prices don’t reflect the rise yet. And who do you think the first people are to get it? I’ll give you a hint, it isn’t me, and it isn’t you, but George Carlin knew in that link I gave you.
Or maybe it is easier to think of it like this. If someone prints up some counterfeit money and gets away with spending it, what happens? They get the benefit of the extra “money” they created. But if the merchant then discovers it is not real, he suffers the loss. And, if someone was able to flood the market with billions or even 100’s of billions of counterfeit bills, that couldn’t be detected what would happen? The person who first spent the money, i.e. the counterfeit operation would once again get the full value of the money because prices wouldn’t have risen to take into account the existence of the new “money”. But over time, prices would rise as that new counterfeit money circulated more and more in the “economy”, and it would eventually have a similar effect to the magical double zero increase example we started with, because most everyone would have more money in their accounts. But by the time that worked its way through, the prices would have all risen to account for it and people would not be benefited by the “rise in prices” , something like the merchant who took the counterfeit bills. Once the “new money” is “priced in”, then nobody is better off, happy meals are just $100.00 instead of $1.00, and everyone can afford them in RELATIVELY the same fashion.
See? That is exactly how the system works now. The only difference is that the governments, think wardens, and the actual prison system owners, think the true money power running the entire country, play the role of the counterfeiters. They just do it “legally” at our expense, by threatening to put you in a cage if you don’t play along. It really is that simple.
The information is available to anyone to go look up for themselves. It is “hidden in plain sight”. Just nose around in the Austrian School of Economics and you will find irrefutable information and facts there. Here I will even give you a some basic links to get you started.
First up, a link to the Von Mises Institute. The thing is more than enough by itself, and it is totally free.
Next, here is a simple book that is excellent. It has been a staple for decades. Get it and read it.
Here’s another great little book on banking and how it steals from everyone.
Finally, here is a link to a video so you don’t have to actually DO anything but watch it.
The simple truth is, if you don’t know how money and the economy actually work, it is NOW your fault. Were you lied to in your owner’s schools? Yes. Was your head filled with nonsense that benefits them to your detriment? Of course it was. Too bad so sad. Now you have been told. If you continue to do nothing to re-edjumakate yourself, that’s on you. Chances are, you won’t bother. It’s human nature.
People don’t bother. It’s hard. It’s time consuming. You have to actually think. It’s easier to watch the latest “Biggest Loser” to see who has to go home and who gets to go to “comeback Canyon” with Bob.
I have sympathy for my fellow inmates here who can’t figure any of it out,. I even have sympathy for those poor tired brainwashed souls who don’t even have the energy to face these facts or to look into it. Most people don’t even know they don’t know. Worse, they actually think they DO know, which is even funnier to me. That’s how far away from a supposed “solution” we are.
So give it up now and learn to relax and enjoy. The overlords will continue to steal from the people, including you and me, because the people, excluding you and me,, in a way, actually want it. They don’t want to do the work to run their own lives. So they turn over control, and the overlords are more than happy to step in to take advantage.
That, my friend is reality. Don’t be angry, it’s like being mad there is gravity. Just accept the truth. The truth shall set you free. The law is there to make it possible for them to steal from you. It isn’t an accident. It isn’t bungling. It is the result of the brainwashed masses indifference. So relax, remember, inflation “is under control”.
Live long and prosper my brainwashed brothers.
