I’ve posted about this issue before, but have not been accurate in my dating of it so far. For a number of years, I kept predicting a major stock market crash that would cause instability worldwide and see a sizable shift occur in the fight between the lower and upper classes. After some initial research, I figured out why I was wrong all those previous times. It wasn’t because we weren’t due for a crash between 2012-2014. We were. What was discovered was that the elite were waiting to push their losses onto the masses instead of taking the losses on themselves.
Since the last crash in 2008, the markets have seen an historic rally that has defied logic and reason. Despite rampant underemployment, record high poverty and homelessness nationwide, the markets kept rising and surpassing historical records. What this creation of poverty not seen since before the great depression showed was that the dreams of prosperity for millions became totally out of reach. Since people can’t afford to buy into this market anymore, the vast majority of the profits made over the last nine years have been exclusively by the 1% (80% of the market is owned by them). Since the elite have found that they are approaching the limits of market highs, they have been scheming about the need to find another avenue to sell their losses onto since most people don’t own stocks anymore. When the markets did show signs of pressure downward, work was done to insure that the trends went back up again. While such actions bought time, these highs can’t last forever. As such, new initiatives have been devised that have been occurring behind the scenes in the halls of power. Since tricking people into the market’s won’t work (due to a combination of unaffordability and unwillingness to invest), there has been a search to look for another place to stick the losses onto instead. After a number of years of debate, a new target has been located; social security.
Privatizing social security has long been a dream of wealthy elites to completely destroy the middle class in the United States. The reason such efforts haven’t been pushed in a while is due to a combination of a Democratic president in Obama and a complete embarrassment in regards to their previous attempts to pull this off before the last crash in 2008. With a willing president in Trump and fickle opposition from “The Resistance TM” coalition, an opportunity has been presented that the elite plan to strike on in the near future. While the public is distracted by government crackdowns on Anti-Fascists (which I have something to say on that for another post) and various Trump scandals, the real work to screw over the American people is beginning behind the scenes. Since Democrats exhausted all of their energies on protecting Obamacare (which deserved to be destroyed), they won’t have enough ammunition left to stop this privatization scheme like they did the last time such efforts occurred during the Bush administration.
If the elite succeed in their efforts, expect millions of Americans to be left in a situation with no social security to rely on. Such a move would fuel the previous blog prediction I made about a repressed uprising that will see mass casualties come in its place (what do you think this escalation in investment in the police state is for, anyway?). If the elite fail for any number of reasons (for which there are many), then they will end up losing a lot of money because there won’t be another place for them to stuff their losses when shit finally hits the fan. Either way, this will empower a socialist government to come to power in the near future; a reason why I see a Democrat or a Socialist come to power in 2020. As most realize by now, turbulent times are ahead of us. Watch out for this in the near future because it won’t be a pretty picture when all is said and done. Regardless of the outcome, the worst is yet to come.
