commentary by Roger Erickson
Have we just seen the instant when Republican's realize they've been duped again ... or at least get a chance to realize that?
The Real Romney Captured on Tape Turns Out to Be a Sneering Plutocrat
Our electoral dynamics are accelerating. Dems realized they'd been duped, about 6 months into Obama's admin - and prior to that the time lag to catch on was traditionally 4-8 years.
Meanwhile, citizens now have a historic opportunity to realize that the real dupes are themselves - accepting that they have only 2 choices?
MMT addresses only a symptom. We need wider sharing of modern operational operations. MOO! :) Despite the obvious, expect many sheople to carry on saying baaah, by sheared statistics alone.
All this makes me realize that we're suffering from a highly distributed, scalable, Lunchhaving by Proxy Syndrome, where we're always convincing ourselves that something that's not wrong with us is systemically wrong - all so that the Upper Looting Class can get obese eating everyone else's lunches.
That's the inverse of a prion disease. Instead of a diabolically unpredictable lock-&-key agent recruiting & perverting individual processes throughout a system, we now have a diabolically unpredictable system managing to invent virtual, systemic problems. I'll call that a "Noirp" social disease, and even go on to predict higher order versions of the same, labeled Uoijd social diseases (double inverse of "prion").
Our culture needs an advanced semantic immune system. Just as Socrates saw through the Sophists saying "your mother dog is your mother" ... we need a modern day Setarcos to explain that "our debt is our bank" rather than believing that our fiat currency accounting "deficit" is our debt. In the process of draining banking reserves by finagling double-entry accounting gimmicks, we're actually draining our situational awareness and group intelligence in addition!
Forget showbiz, there's no degeneracy like semantic degeneracy. Do try to have your discourse keep up with dynamic situations! Loose paradigms sink economies.
