The Definition of 'Insanity Cubed': Opinion

Now let's have a look at two more exponential trends:

The first chart shows the exponential increase in the U.S. money supply; the second chart shows the exponential increase in debt.

An exponential increase in the money-supply must result in hyperinflation. An exponential increase in the level of debt must result in bankruptcy. Period. Put into even more stark terms, policies that have already proven to have failed can now be conclusively shown to be plainly suicidal.

Readers will note that the exponential curve in the second chart is less-extreme than the first. There is only one reason for this: Since 2008, U.S. interest rates have been fraudulently maintained at 0%. With the U.S. sitting with the largest debt in the history of the world, and on a clear/obvious/mathematical road to bankruptcy; the chart above is proof that these interest rates are fraudulent.

Had U.S. interest rates been normalized during this time, the U.S. government would have spent trillions of dollars more on interest payments alone -- and the second chart would be as insanely steep as the first.

Another Alternate definition of insanity: Engaging in behavior that is knowingly self-destructive, yet refusing to acknowledge that such behavior is suicidal.

We are now at "insanity cubed."

  1. Repeating a failed strategy again and again.
  2. Employing the same failures to continue repeating that failure.
  3. Continuing to repeat the same Cycle of Failure even after we have conclusive, mathematical proof that this is now economic suicide.
In our original definition of "insanity," it was conceded that this could be interpreted as (mere) stupidity, instead. Likewise, instead of concluding that our political leaders, bankers, economists, and media talking-heads represent the most-deranged group of Lunatics in history, there is another conclusion consistent with the facts.

Massive, endemic corruption. With money-printing stretched to the brink of hyperinflation, with debt-creation taking us all to the brink of bankruptcy, what are we now being told by our politicians?

Bail-outs are out. "Bail-ins" are in. With nothing left to be plundered in our public treasuries, the intentional insolvency created-and-increased by the politicians is now their pretext for stealing (paper) assets directly from the private accounts of individuals...except for the very wealthy. As we have seen with the Cyprus Steal; the Oligarchs receive timely "warnings" well before any plundering takes place -- so their wealth can be shifted to safety.

Our leaders are either a collective group of deranged lunatics, or a collective group of (bought-and-paid-for) traitors; I'll leave it to you to decide.
