I linked to the Daily Mail, but the original article was from CNBC. Okay, just carry on. There's nothing to see here. Move along...

Or perhaps the economic situation is just a tad more nuanced than the Daily Fail would have us believe?

We're about to print more again for the third time.
We're monetizing the debt.
It's the Weimar Republic all over again.

Current inflation rate 3.16%. And that is largely caused with the run up in the price of oil that is extremely unlikely to continue and might well reverse itself. Unless and until the US has to pay reparations in gold, this ain't no Weimar Republic.

I don't get people at all.

Oh no!!! Meh.

I'm sorry, but I am only able to maintain an appropriate level of blood pressure spiking panic on this for so long.

We'd all better buy guns and put them under our beds so we are prepared for when society crumbles. Who started this thread again?

In the Great Depression, people went home to their family farms. They grew their own food. We can't do that today.
Why can't you grow your own food? I grew tomatoes in a 3rd-floor apartment a few years ago. And hey Hooverville didn't look that bad, nice use of the space I think.

"How to spread dissent with the Government"
1) find an article in a mainstream publication that suggests life as we know it is being eroded
2) post a link to it on as many forums/discussion boards/social media sites as you can, asking people to "discuss"

For every link you post, dozens of people will participate, which regardless of individual opinions stated, will overall spread the message of the original article.
