28. "austerity" is disaster capitalism to allow extremists etc. into power.

 

Create chaos, then promise that you are the answer to chaos.

It has been done in the United States to great effect:

-Bush friends OPEC declaring an embargo during Carter's time to make him look weak and to hit Americans in their Personal Convenience; same with Iran holding hostages until Reagan got elected, in exchange for weaponry.

-Enron pulling the same stunt, meeting with Ahnold in secret then creating an embargo through "rolling blackouts" in California, resulting in a special election installing Ahnold, who then gave Enron pennies on the dollar instead of the legit fines previously called for.

Make things bad enough, and people will of course scream for change. This is then your opportunity.
