How Hard? Real Hard!!!

Submariner looked out past that signpost up ahead and asked and answered one of the fundamental kwestins;
The United States currently faces the same challenge that Germany had in the Thirties. How does a state create an economy to support a military superpower yet meet fundamental human needs beyond physical security? The answer, of course, is that it can't and the ensuing scarcity management requires a Darwinian approach.
That red pill is helluva drug ain't it? But in the end, it's better to know and be in some position to deal - than to be taken by surprise. Once you've solved the equation for "what's going to happen" - you're free to examine the corollaries of "how it's going to happen" and you don't even need to sweat the "when" - because you know it's already work in progress.

This is what I like about Big Don. He knows what's coming and even though he's exposed a false ideas vulnerability - which leaves him vulnerable to certain nefarious forms of exploitation - I believe that from a practical perspective, the man is otherwise ready for the clampdown and is thus a natural ally in this dot connecting game we like to play. At the end of the day, the best we can do is to exchange information and ideas that help us each to discern the shape of what's happening and how best to respond for the wellbeing of our friends and families out here on what will be a systematic implementation of a very hard right Darwinian threshing floor.
