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?
