Being So Wrong for So Long

What might be the psychological consequences of a collapse of fiat currencies, in general, and of the fiat dollar, in particular?

Yes, we all know that if the dollar collapses, food supplies will disappear, the electricity grid may fail, there’ll be chaos in the streets as starving Americans seek to steal any remaining food, etc..  We get that.

But what will be the psychological consequences for millions of Americans who are forced to admit that by trusting the government and the fiat monetary system, they’ve been so wrong for so long, that the resulting catastrophe is inescapable?  More importantly, what will be the psychological consequences of being forced to admit that we each became personally responsible for that catastrophe when we accepted the government’s lies?

It’s easy and fun to blame the people in Washington DC for our plight.  But what happens if we’re forced to admit our own complicity?

What will happen when millions of people are forced to admit that fundamental beliefs which form the foundation for those people’s vision of themselves and their world are shown to be lies?   And what happens to the millions of American who are currently taking medication for psychological conditions, if the “system” collapses and they are suddenly deprived of their “meds”?

We are a nation of addicts.  Some are addicted to illegal drugs, some to legal; some to alcohol, others to tobacco; some to buying material possessions; some to welfare, some to subsidies; most to lies.  What happens if American addicts are all simultaneously deprived of their “fix” and have to quit “cold turkey”?  What happens when we’re not only deprived of food, but also of the lies we depend on make our “system” work?

The following video offers some very insightful and unsettling answers to that question:

In the aftermath of a genuine collapse, who will be able to survive the psychological devastation without faith in God?  Who will be able to quickly acquire that faith shortly after the collapse?   Wouldn’t it be better to be building that bulwark of faith, now, before the collapse?

    Get ready for a REAL “Night of the Living Dead”.

    It looks like it is going to be the same old story, survival of the fittest. Maybe this time the survivors will be smart enough to banish the money god.

    This video, on it’s own, seems logical and rather appealing, and indeed has a lot of truth to it.
    But looking at the series, you quickly discern that this is Rationalism.

    Rationalists believe they know the truth by appealing to reason as a source of knowledge or justification, this is nothing more than the New Age / Occultist view “Do what Thou Wilt”.

    This is in contradiction to what was taught by Jesus Christ.

    There’s nothing new under the sun, so it comes down to making a choice: the same choice all humanity makes and has ever made. Sometimes it is just that simple.

    Great question. It ranks right up there with, “If God could save everyone, would He do it?”.

    Could this be the winnowing of “the wheat and the chaff” or is it more like “the barley harvest”? I thought barley ripened first.

    Anything is possibly with God, but what makes God thee God is sovereignty so if the plan isn’t to save everyone, then Amen (so be it).

    I am sure some people will riot not having any true knowledge of the why things are what they are. Some may blow their brains out. Some won’t know what to do because they expect masters to take care of them. They need leaders. It may very well come down to faith, hope, and charity.

      We must tell them of the One that doesn’t lie to them.

    Imagine that the “addicts” go thru their withdrawel phase and when the fog clears so does their thinking. Maybe it’s time for the Great Healing. Bring It.
