Ever since Nixon abandoned the gold standard in 1971, the US financial system has been limping along getting deeper and deeper into a deficit, which is currently at a cool 22.5 trillion and climbing. If you'd like to witness America's debt-accrual in real time, go here:

It's certainly a wake up call for anyone doubting that the US dollar will have any value in the next 5 to 10 years. Which begs the question, how long will this blind belief in a inflationary system persist world-wide?
Almost every great war and great depression can be traced back to one primitive desire for more money. Think of every ghetto in the world from Mumbai to Cape Town and from Detroit to Compton. Hyperinflation alone has taken hold of 28 countries in the past 25 years. But is anything done to truly help the people rise out of their desperate situations? No.
In fact, by keeping its people financially dependent, the government is doing EXACTLY what its meant to do. It keeps its labor force perpetually comatose through constant entertainment/distraction.
Sports, gambling, lotteries, drugs, alcohol, all have one thing in common. They are distractions. Their entire purpose is to subdue and instill a sense of hopium that life is good and if it's not, it will get better. At the end of the day, you go home with less money in your pocket. You go back to work to make more money at the job you hate and wait anxiously for the weekend to spend it all over again on this evil cycle of pointless entertainment. Rinse. Repeat.
It's no surprise that most Americans have little to no savings. More elderly are coming out of retirement to work because Social Security isn't enough. And the younger generation has a pretty good idea that they have zero benefits waiting for them when they grow old because that money will be spent by the government on x, y or z.
Yet no one is to blame because that's just how things are. The housing crisis of 2008, for example, destroyed people's lives. Oh well. Few if any went to prison for the equivalent of genoklept, i.e., the massive systematic theft of a racial or cultural group.
So what do people have to look forward to when everything seems stacked against them?
The quiet cure to most alternative remedies that only put a band-aid on the root of the economic disaster we have today. This system has been designed in the same way Vegas designs slot machines. The odds are completely stacked against us. Banks have created a stronghold since the early days of secret meetings in trains. The grip they have on our throat is enough to let us breathe and work and survive but not nearly enough to live.
The mysterious hero Satoshi Nakamoto might as well have been an alien (or team of aliens) who's sole purpose was to give the human race a way to fight back. Our first step as a self-aware society is to rise against the bankster genoklepts and abandon their worthless currency. Crypto is based on math. Trustless, unbiased and fair. Once we all accept this fact in a global fashion, we will slowly see every society, including our own improve as a whole.
So it's really up to us, the same way way it was for Neo once he learned of the matrix. The responsibility lies upon the one who knows the truth to help those who don't or can't. Let's continue our passive resistance by improving our own lives so we too can help others wake from this deep-seated coma. Never stop learning. Never stop investing in crypto. Never forget why you're here.
To be continued...
My contribution to the revolutionist movement will be to turn the recipes I post on this blog into The Revolutionist Cookbook and eventually open a restaurant where only cryptocurrency is accepted. Where tipping won’t be necessary as everyone will be paid full salaries and where simple and healthy ingredients will meet delicious cuisine. Like open source code, all of my recipes will be available to the public in full detail and any improvements offered will be embraced and possibly added to the menu in their perfected form.
