Capitalism only works better than top down planning when decentralized and there is lots of competition. Monopolies in any form are inherently bad and inefficient.
Anything done in the United States requires an environmental impact statement. It is illegal to let a baby take dumb into an ocean bay. Why? The environment must be protected from baby poop! Hello, reader! Immigrants poop and often not where they are suppose to go. Changes in population alter the environment. The cry we must protect the environment is heard nowhere. Should not there be a cry from environmentalists for a comprehensive review of the environmental consequences of millions of immigrants? The environmental crazies cry out that THE ENVIRONMENT MUST BE PROTECTED from baby poop! Why no environmental impact statements from cities, states, and the federal government on the consequences of the increased human population? Citizens hounded by mindless bureaucrats screaming about protecting the environment have had to endure having government agencies endlessly blow smoke up their butts. Increasing population alters the environment. Yet, environmentalists, the EPA, Greens have no interest in the effects of increased population on the environment. Why? Is it the environment is not the agenda; power and control are!
YOU CAN’T! Read Debt Jubilee to see what can be done.
The public is told a lie that high interest rates are necessary to compensate the lender for risk and taking the lender’s money out of circulation tying up their money. The public is not told the truth. Almost all the money banks loan are created by the banks. No cash investors are involved. What high interest rates do accomplish is to make those in the financial services wealthy, inexorably increase the wealth gab, creates debt slaves and mask some of the effects inflation which is driven by government. In short, High interests rates do not grow the economy. Thus, compensating for inflation that occurs during the life of the loan is just a disguised tax government forces you to pay. compensates the borrower for government created inflation. The bower not compensating for inflation costs the bank nothing. The only lossers are bank executive’s excessive salaries, bonuses and compensation packages and the Congress being able to masks the real costs of pointless wars, exorbitant government salaries and retirements
Reading the above, one would be tempted to argue that the solution is to control interest rates. Unfortunately, the solution would on be a temporary fix. Within a generation new inequities would crop up. The real issue is that any economic system not clearly designed to enslave the people or shamelessly exploit them to benefit the few, will by its very nature ultimately become distorted creating masses of poor with a few rich on top with little upward mobility or downward mobility. At which time economic, political and social collapse usually follow.
Why is this conundrum so? Whu if there is no economic system that will not end up transfering wealth into the hands of the few no matter how well designed to be equilitarian and debt is not bad in itself, and debt will always ends up distorting financial transactions with or without interest which will always result in increasing wealth concentration and widening the income gab. Was Christ correct in his statement, “the poor will always be with us?”
The answer is simple. Yes, the poor will always be with us, but the, the poor and rich don not have to be so far apart. All economic system are based on feedback and all feedback is always imperfect and subject to increasing distortion over time No matter how well designed, all economic systems become dysfunctional over time due to internal distortions. All economic systems require people. Human interaction is based on perception and understanding which is always imperfect. Value is a social construct and money’s value is based on perception of value which is a social function that is never static.
The possible solution would be to stop distortions that allows wealth to, over time, become grosly unevenly distributed and dysfunctional for the majority of peoole? Simply, force a periodic Debt Jubilee. A periodic Debt Jubilee every generation or when the gap betwen the top and bottom reaches a magnitude of 100 percent would rebalance the economic system, eliminate the grossest distortions and reduce revolutions. The simplest Debt Jubilee would be to declare that all loans with interests that exceed principal is recalculated to return only the principal and a maximum of 10% total loan interest. Debt repayment would then be based on the prinipal plus 10% of the principal (simple interest). The amount already paid would subtracted from the new debt recalculation. All loans that have already paid back principal and 10% would be considered paid in full.
Would a Debt Jubilee end all economic inequality, distortions and problems? No! But, a Debt Jubilee would reduce the magnitude of the distortions and injustices. Looking for honest caring leaders or bureacrats to look after the People’s interests is not going to end well for most.

The promise made was a new vibrant city full of life and activity. The university and government experts were so sure and so confident. What they and their computer simulation models delivered was a stillborn city empty of life and economic activity. The experts tore down homes of the poor and low middle class along with their functioning communities. They were replaced with dead, sterile public housing with broken communities. Massive highways gouged out vast tracts of the city, dissecting what was once working and thriving communities into isolated enclaves, just shells of what the communities and activities they had a decade before. Yet, somehow, these visionaries and urban experts felt it was imperative to run the highways to be directly next to Anheuser Bush brewery complex, and other well-connected businesses would benefit from quick access to the highway for transport and executives commuting in from their suburban homes dislocating tens of thousands of families living path cleared to make room for massive highways and the off and on access ramps. So many lives shattered and uprooted to benefit a few well connected to government. Magically, the homes of those pushing the highways and well connected never had to worry about their homes or neighborhoods. The highways magically bypassed them. The rich, the educated elites, the overpaid bureaucrats laid waste to St. Louis in much the way an invading army would and then return to their intact homes and neighborhoods. The trusting citizens of St. Louis lives were turned upside down as St. Louis had its economic throat cut by the very same do-gooders who cut all loans and to the city. This act of sabotage guaranteed the dispossessed would live in the suburb.
When done, a giant Arch stood were homes, businesses, and neighborhoods had stood. An Arch built at great expense which has never been recovered. Highways crisscrossed the city. Streetcars that transported thousands were gone. The people of St. Louis were betrayed by their government. Their lives and routines pointlessly destroyed to feed the hubris of government and university planning elites. Elites, who gained financially always as so many in St. Louis, lost everything that made life meaningful. So, why should we believe anything these so-called elites, bureaucrats, and elites tell us as gospel. Has not their collective failures taught us nothing! St. Louis is a testament to their deceit, incompetence, and greed.
If the U.S. is attacked by nuclear weapons from Asia or the Middle East, the United States has no choice but to attack China. Why? China’s war plans to defeat the United States are to have small belligerent nations attack the United States with nuclear weapons and, as U.S. reacts to the belligerents initiate a nuclear strike to cripple infrastructure then take out the remaining U.S. nuclear arsenal to deliver the coup de grâce to the U.S. ability to respond with nuclear weapons. By crippling the ability of the U.S. to retaliate against China and the massive infrastructure damage and casualties from, first, small belligerent states such as Pakistan and N. Korea, the Chinese PLA would be confident that China would not suffer catastrophically from further hostilities with the U. S. At the same time within the U.S., China-friendly universities and government cadres in Congress and infiltrated government agencies including the State Department and the military would push for the U.S. to agree to terms of surrender rather than suffer more devastation. Similar to the NAZI plan to use pro-NAZI forces within Churchill’s government to bring about Britain’s agreeing to peace terms, which was nixed by Winston Churchill refusal to surrender. This is China’s master plan which will work unless there are enough Americans still in power of the ilk of Winston Churchill, who stood against British Nazi sympathizers wanting Britain to become part of the NAZI vision, ready to formulate an action plan to counter China’s strategy involving an immediate nuclear response on being attacked with nuclear weapons that removes any hope China has of sustaining minimal casualties. The U.S. has to have a strategic nuclear response that will guarantee that even with a greatly diminish retaliatory strike capacity, 900,000,000 Chinese dead can be guaranteed.
HEMP attacks followed by strikes against damns, flood control systems, power stations, airports, seaports, and train lines would provide means to guarantee that no matter how effective a first or second strike against U.S. nuclear forces, the U.S. would be able to deliver a lethal blow to China.
How? By focusing on striking China with multiple EMP attacks. A series of HEMP attacks spread over a couple of weeks would devastate China.
The effects of well-designed EMP attacks would shut down China’s high-speed trains, which depend on electricity and sophisticated signal and control systems. Train and traffic signals would cease to function. Air traffic control systems would fail. Every village and city in China would lose its smart control systems. 60% of China’s population living in cities is dependent on a functioning infrastructure that requires electricity, electronics, computers.
Telecommunication and the electrical grid would be down for months. Electronic control systems regulating most of China’s infrastructure would eventually fail. Replacements to repair systems damaged by an EMP attack will eventually run out. Cell towers and cell phones would be damaged and after repeated HEMP become unreliable.
Imagine 1.3 billion Chinese citizens and government use to instant communications to anyone anywhere in the country, losing access not being able to call or text messages to anyone or access the internet within a few weeks.
The elderly and young in high rise apartments would have no running water, food, heat, electricity, phones, internet access, or running elevators would not live long in those vertical death traps.
China would not be able to feed its 1.3 billion people without a smooth running food transport and delivery system. Hundreds of millions would die. China would lose its children and elderly. Cities would become mass graves infected with disease and the stench of rotting corpses and the backed-up sewage of the living.
Even though U.S. carriers are easily to sink, Chinese cargo ships are even easier to send to the oceans bottom. U.S. attack submarines, frigates, destroyers, and land based aircraft would have time to devastate Chinese shipping, which would further worsen fuel and food woes. Coastal cities like Shanghai and Tianjin would not find alternate food supplies.
What nuclear forces left in the U.S. arsenal would be sufficient to take out China’s power plant, damns, flood control systems, and critical rail and road bridges to ensure hundreds of millions of Chinese would die fro., starvation, disease, and physical hardships.
Imagine what would happen to the elderly and the young Chinese in a nuclear war. Over 1/2 would be trapped in tall buildings with no working elevators, phones that no longer work, no water for working toilets or to drink, dark hallways, and stairways to navigate, no heat or cooling. In short, a nuclear means lots of dead children and the elderly.
For most of the 1.3 billion Chinese requiring food, medicine, fuel, electricity, communications, the odds of staying alive, the first year would be low.
The outcome of this brief but devastating exchange of nuclear weaponry would be a weakened central government surrounded by hostile countries on all sides eager to annex sections of China.
