  • In the Land of the Free, however, you can have cops point guns at you for selling milk. Milk!
  • [U]ntil the debt is wrung out of the system, either through default or raging inflation – there’s no chance of it actually being paid in anything remotely resembling current dollars – the equivalent of an economic Black Death is going to plague the land.’
  • Many of the foods we eat are genetically modified to resist pesticides. The crops absorb the poison—and we eat it.
  • People’s willingness to hold money can change suddenly for a “psychological and spontaneous reason”, causing a spike in the velocity of money [i.e., hyperinflation]. It can occur at lightning speed, over a few weeks. The shift invariably catches economists by surprise. They wait too long to drain the excess money.’

  • I forgive you, honey. Now, why don’t you just…go to sleep?
  • China is considering ending its policy of pegging their currency to the Dollar.
  • [O]ur ruling class’s standard approach to any and all matters, its solution to any and all problems, is to increase the power of the government – meaning of those who run it, meaning themselves, to profit those who pay with political support for privileged jobs, contracts, etc.’
  • Lunacy in our government is not new—Hamilton exhibited extraordinary amounts of ridiculousness:

  • Many books have been written on the Calvinism/Arminianism debate. I do not know of any work that presents the debate and the outworking of the different tenets better than this series does. The script tellingly and incisively sets forth the errors of Arminianism, yet it does so compassionately.’
