With every unit of fiat currency, by its very nature, being an "IOU"… The Rich
(at this point, anyone with a positive and non-contracting net worth) holding ever-growing piles, necessitates everyone else to increasingly be in debt to them.
It is inevitable that we must proceed, under the $IMFS paradigm, from "the 50%"… to "the 10%"… to "the 1%"… to "the 0.001%"… to…
It seems to me like "the 99.99%" have already decided it won't get as far as that though?
So if the 1% have a brain — and one would hope they must have, if they were able to take everything from everyone else without them even realising until quite recently… what would it say about the rest of us if even they don't! — they will have already been working on an alternative game we can all start to play together shortly. (Perhaps even for quite a long time? ;) )
Would anything else make sense at this point?
