Let’s create a scenario whereby we crush the mortage industry and banking industry — let’s pop the unsustainable bubble. Then, let’s paint a picture of global collapse which can only be resolved by having Congress vote to give us 100′s of billions of dollars in bailout money.
The public will accept the resolution in fear of a collapse of their prosperity, and threat of martial law. Althoug we create the entire “financial crisis”, they will throw billions at us to save them. We will pretend we are the government which will take care of them, and they will have no other alternative than to voluntarily continue to make us richer.
“Some one remarked that the best way to unite all the nations on this globe would be an attack from some other planet. In the face of such an alien enemy, people would respond with a sense of their unity of interest and purpose.” John Dewey, New York 1917.
“In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us realize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.” – President Ronald Reagan, in a speech made to the 42nd General Assembly of the United Nations, Sept. 21, 1987
