37. Economists are mostly fantasy based thinkers
They do not tally in their "projections" of "growth the REAL costs of their over done ambitions.
First of all they don't add in the cost of robbing human happiness,they don't add in environmental damage,they don't factor in the real costs..because fiat money is not really wealth it is largely symbolic 'wealth'worth something because we BELIEVE it is worth something..That IS what "consumer confidence" means.

We as a country have been snookered by the snakes in suits.Painting rosy pictures we wanted to hear and believe as if it was truth.

And the shock doctrine will sweep us down the drain."De-modernizing us"

Here we have now, the greedy devouring it's own as Karl Marks said..

"Capitalism has only existed for the last 200 years. It is a relatively recent phenomenon, which has now outlived its historical usefulness."

Capitalism and the pronoia...
John Perry Barlow defined pronoia as the suspicion the Universe is a conspiracy on your behalf. Here is how pronoia was exploited to create feudal systems.

The Pronoia surrounding capitalism has been very costly,to US,and we STILL deny it.It has cost US, not those ever so fucking blindly optimistic over-wealthy,manipulating,powerful,heartless con men.Fantasy based beliefs on issues that concern life or death,are dangerous to our collective survival,dangerous as any psychopath or fascist regime..
