Eye opener for November 13, 2023

The biggest problem that all people face is the disparity in wealth around the world. Historically, that disparity has always ended up with a collapse of that empire or civilization which impacted people no matter their race. Racism is just another tool like all other identity politics that is used to distract from the one thing that is actually behind all social disruption and decline.

Consider the turmoil we see in the world today, most of it can be traced back to resources. Of course there are other factors at play, but basically, one group has the resource while another group wants the resource. In America, the percentage of resources has increasingly been going to a smaller group of people. The amount of resources hasn't changed only the distribution has. In America, five trillion dollars were printed out of thin air. 40 percent of all U S. dollars ever created were printed in a couple years, which is the cause for the soaring inflation we're seeing only a few years after that giant influx of dollars.

While flooding your economy in this way creates a number of problems, like the debasement of your currency in and of itself, the problem is exacerbated when a majority of it goes to the rich. The problem with distributing most of the 5 trillion dollars to the rich is that it gets hoarded because the rich don't need to spend it. That excess money deflates the value of every dollar, which is not that big of an issue if you have millions or billions of other dollars. To the majority of Americans however, it is a big problem. When the cost of everything doubles or triples but wages remain stagnant or decline, you end up with an economic system that is unsustainable. When more of your citizens fall into poverty, fewer of them have faith in their nation, which leads to collapse.

You can believe that certain individuals deserves more money, but you must understand that when too few have that money, it becomes useless. The Romans debased their currency, the Sun never set on the British empire but neither of these is considered a world power today. These and all other empires failed because power, money were too concentrated in too few hands to the extent that the masses saw little to no utility in their leadership.

As for resources being held by too few, consider how gas prices change in a daily basis now. In Miami, the price at the same gas station went from $3.09 at 5:30 am to $3.25 by 3:30 pm that same day. This seems unstable to me, but it's not even that there's a shortage of gas. The instability in the market is due to things like Saudi Arabian announcing that they are slowing the supply of oil to the world. This announcement came after America tried to tell the rest of the world what they could charge for their oil. Go figure, the countries that control the oil have more say in what they will sell it for than America.

This recent disregard and lack of respect for American hegemony (which hasn't been warranted for decades IMHO) by Saudi Arabia and more countries is understandable: You can't be the World's playground bully (America) for decades (endless military conflicts), get your ass kicked (America never wins these endless military conflicts) and expect to maintain respect. If you have any doubts, try to find a conflict in which America was victorious since WWII (which we didn't really win either)

In 2018, I wrote a book highlighting the problems Humanity would face if more power, wealth, and control was funneled to a small group of elite individuals, groups or organizations. In my book, I provided solutions (from myself and others) to the inevitable problems and also a means for the Public to analyze, compare and contrast the words and deeds of those we choose to follow against reality. In my book Solutions: Enough complaining. Let's fix America.

In "Solutions...", provide the means for readers to disseminate information as provided by their news sources of choice, their elected officials, and any other authority they chose to follow. The book also offers a means to hold their leaders up, not just to a higher standard than is currently accepted but to one that would improve their lives and the lives of those they care for.
