Have we learned anything by watching the news this summer? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at subjects the media and political candidates refuse to talk about, like the future of our economy, the tendency for politicians to raise taxes and regulate business, and the unpleasant choices we’re left with regarding fiscal policy. When those in power choose instead to focus on toxic narratives, we’re left with deadly consequences.

What is social justice and why is it important? We welcome back economist and author Pat Wood (www.technocracy.news) who discusses the history of social justice, redistribution of wealth, and technocracy as the science behind social engineering. When one group wants what another has, social justice becomes nothing more than legalized covetousness.

Social justice, if left unfettered, will likely result in socialism. Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy, analyzes how socialism has affected Venezuela, where power for the elites has become an end unto itself and the people are the ones who suffer.

John’s quote of the week:
“Politicians will not get out of the way and lower the taxes and lower the regulations to get the small businesses going, to get the jobs going, to get to where we need to get going, going.”

We are taking a vacation this week for our intelligence briefing, Section 6, but John will return next week with analysis on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

When Reality Becomes Real

When reality sets in, politicians panic, because that’s when politics-as-usual disintegrates in the face of an onrushing crisis.

During the endgame of inflationary policy, revenues fall and governments respond by pushing tax rates to the firewall, causing revenues to plummet even further; a lesson governments like the state of California never seem to learn. Tom Giovanetti from the Institute for Policy Innovation (www.ipi.org) explains why soak-the-rich schemes always fail, while impoverishing the middle class at the same time.

Then we’ll pursue the current monetary situation in Europe with David McAlvany from the McAlvany Weekly Commentary (www.mcalvany.com).

Naomi Schaefer Riley was canned off the “Chronicle of Higher Education” blog after she made politically incorrect statements about race studies programs at universities. Academia is becoming the most closed-minded environment in the western world. We’ll discuss the implications of this as well as Naomi’s subsequent op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal entitled, “The Academic Mob Rules.”

We’ve often spoken how the consensus process (Delphi Technique) involves the use of change agent facilitators. When the process starts, the outcome is predetermined, but the participants don’t know that. Mesa County, Colorado, just discovered this the hard way. We’ll run clips from a Colorado radio program to demonstrate the point.

John’s boralogue points out that there really was never any doubt where everything would wind up once the Euro crisis began, placing us at the leading edge of much bigger storms to come. Once on a tax-inflate-spend money train, governments can’t get off the wild ride until the train finally goes off a trestle. Today we’ll give you a road map of the exciting journey upon which we find ourselves.
