This is part II of IV of Useful Idiots and The Something for Nothing Society. In part I, we covered the beginning of the evolution from a capitalist constitutional republic during Teddy Roosevelt’s presidency a century ago into the progressive socialist state we have become today. This transformation has taken over a century and has been implemented in such an incremental manner as to be mostly imperceptible to the public at large. It began with the creation of the Federal Reserve (privately owned central bank owned by multi-century banking families) and UNSOUND money (which transformed money from a place to store your savings and labor and a store of value which moved your savings into the future, into an instrument of confiscation, theft and exploitation of the public. The other element of the road to serfdom was the personal income tax, also implemented at that time. This series is a connect the dots exercise designed to allow you to see the enormity and inevitability of the societal collapse we find ourselves in. Its causes, the system that is in place driving it forward and the reality of our situations, better allow you to see and prepare for its demise, hopefully benefitting from it. It is the greatest opportunity in history but requires a keen understanding of history and Austrian economics which has predicted it all. The history of this collapse of empires is being presented to you in this series.
Inhabitants of the developed world have experienced an IRON curtain of government policies crushing their futures and prohibiting prosperity. This plan has been in place and unfolding for over 100 years. It is a plan and the playbook is easily found and understood on the internet. It is central to creating USEFUL IDIOTS and a Something for Nothing Society. It is nothing less than the destruction of the American way, the taking of our freedoms, private property, future prosperity and destruction of any incentives to produce. It is a process where the elites which control society transform the public into modern day serfs and transform the fruits of your labor to themselves in a myriad ways. It is the implementation of socialism, which is the consumption of wealth and the destruction of wealth creation as we outlined in part 1.
