Expecting A Recovery? Don't.
I don't wish to gush, but I really have to say that every time I hear Stefan Molyneux speak, my respect increases exponentially. With Stefan the hysteria is absent. There are no conspiracies to get your head around. He just lays it on the line.
This video is no different. His opening remarks bring a gloom, and a sense of hopelessness, and 18 minutes later he explains why we really, really, really do not want a recovery. Using historical context, he tells us why we are in this mess, and thankfully, he tells us that we will emerge from it, cleaner, better, happier, and more relaxed after the economic armageddon that is heading our way.
Stefan's words resonated with me. As he was talking I pictured a forest fire. On the face of it, a hugely destructive force, flames licking everywhere, consuming all in its path. And afterwards? New shoots. New plants. The soil revitalised and re-energised in an elemental way that no man made fertiliser could ever hope to match. A fundamental rebirth, and a new beginning for all.
This is a great video made by an intelligent man. I thought it was worth 18 minutes of my time. I really think it is worth 18 minutes of yours too. Watch it if you can.
My thanks go to Richard who left the link to Stefan's video in the last comments section. Cheers Richard, keep 'em coming!
This is news we can use.
