Commander Zero has some thoughts on the inter-COVIDian crisis, and things to come. Food for thought.
Here are some of my own notes:
All the COVIDication of the workforce has done is
a) ring the dinner bell to outsource everything (and everyone) outsourceable.
(Commercial real estate, long-term: deader than canned tuna.)
b) People in Bangladesh cannot cook your burger, do chest compressions during your heart attack, nor change your oil or transmission.
c) If you have a job, you are employed at will.
d) If you own a business, you are employed at whim.
e) Find ways to make money that have other people making the money and delivering it to you. Diversity is asinine. Diversification is king.
f) long-term, having a large class of unemployed, under-employed, and broke, hungry, shiftless lumpenproletariat is how revolutions start. Middle classes do not revolt. This year has seen the biggest targeted wipeout of the middle class, worldwide, and shifting them to the lower class, than anything since the Great Depression. And we're still in the early innings of it, as COVID2.0 now appears to be clearing its throat.
g) That's before the blatant disenfranchising of a third of the adults in this country by the most ham-fistedly blatant electoral fraud (outside of every election in Central America, ever) in living memory.
h) make plans accordingly, for a long, cold, brutal, and quite probably bloody decade-plus of economic winter. Possibly with a bonus helping of "heads on pikes".
Good times Are Here Again will not be played anytime soon.
And remember: Amateurs talk tactics, professionals talk logistics isn't just a snappy put-down; it's How the World Works at ground level.
And for Common Core grads, you should know that 1776 was planned and funded by the richest bunch of Establishment movers and shakers (not to mention smugglers and pirates) in the New World. You could look it up.
Coincidence, my @$$. Learn a lesson from history.
1776.2 better be too, or it's not going to go the way you hope.
And Another Thing:
The official governing body in 1776 was called Parliament.
In 2020, the Congress and Courts and the rest of the Deep State are still The King's Parliament and His Majesty's Court. And President Trump isn't their king, as they've told you for four long years.
Why is anyone surprised at this, or how things are playing out?
The Continental Congress was an unauthorized, unsanctioned, unlawful, treasonous, and seditious assembly, and every man-jack of them were eventually targeted for arrest and hanging. If you're expecting GOVERNMENT as it is presently constituted to plan or carry out anything like a revolt, you don't understand things very well.
You're going to have to find and BE the leaders you're waiting to have appear, or there ain't gonna be none of those.
Let that sink in until it fills your marrow.
That is all.
