This is what a civilization committing suicide looks like
April 16th, 2020 by Ken Hagler

The ini­tial job­less claims for the US from the last mon­th’s worth of data are over 22 mil­lion. That’s over 8% of the entire adult pop­u­la­tion of the coun­try forced out of their jobs by the gov­ern­ment in just a month! I expect the gov­ern­ment will be chang­ing the way they cal­cu­late unem­ploy­ment again to keep the offi­cial num­ber down. There aren’t any recent bank­rupt­cy num­bers avail­able, but cer­tain­ly many of those peo­ple worked for small busi­ness­es that won’t sur­vive. Every­one likes to focus on huge cor­po­ra­tions, but the vast major­i­ty of busi­ness­es in the US are small inde­pen­dent com­pa­nies that lack the cor­po­ra­tions’ abil­i­ty to bribe politi­cians for a bailout.

Peo­ple have been talk­ing about how this could be as bad as the Great Depres­sion, but I think that’s incred­i­bly opti­mistic. The Great Depres­sion was caused by the gov­ern­ment of a sin­gle coun­try (albeit a very large and wealthy one) med­dling in the econ­o­my. What we’re see­ing now is most of the world’s gov­ern­ments active­ly try­ing to destroy the econ­o­my, coun­tries not falling to mass hys­te­ria being rel­a­tive­ly few and poor—Sweden is the most promi­nent case of sane behav­ior, but although Swe­den is a wealthy and high­ly indus­tri­al­ized coun­try, it has a pop­u­la­tion small­er than many cities. This delib­er­ate world-wide attempt to crip­ple our civ­i­liza­tion using mass hys­te­ria as an excuse is unprece­dent­ed. What do our rulers think is going to hap­pen when hun­dreds of mil­lions of des­per­ate peo­ple all over the world can’t afford food or shel­ter?
