Most of us would like to assume that we’re smarter than pigs, but are we? Let’s have a look. Pigs are pretty intelligent mammals and forest-dwelling wild pigs are known to be especially wily. However, there’s a traditional method for trapping them. In fact, it is the essence of trapping humans into collectivism.

Since earning the nomination as the 2020 Democratic candidate for the presidency, Joe Biden has stated that he is as a “transition candidate.” This was an odd statement, especially for someone who has hardly begun his formal campaign. (He’s not even in office yet and he’s discussing being on the way out?) Yet this was not just another one-off Biden gaff, as has been suggested by some. Since announcing his pick for vice president, he has stated, “Look, I view myself as a bridge, not as anything else.”

In the short time since the killing of George Floyd, demonstrations have taken place in all fifty US states. Riots have occurred in forty of them. In each of the incidents, many protesters have held up signs saying, “Defund the Police.” Of course, no one wants to become a riot victim, but in those cities and states that are Democrat-run, there’s a bit of a hitch: Politicians must be seen to sympathise with protesters, or they will not appear to be sufficiently outraged by “systemic racism.”

In 1946, Juan Perón was elected president of a prosperous country - Argentina. He promised great social benefits to the common man, under justicialismo (social justice). This “justice” was never actually defined; it was more implied: If you’re a common man, the Perón government will favour you over the “rich.”

“Imagine if you will, a situation in which the economy of a nation is overdue to experience an economic collapse of epic proportions, but remains endlessly at the brink. Every day, a collapse is more likely, yet the economic house of cards remains in a state of suspended animation. Some people become increasingly edgy, while others become more complacent. Only a few choose to actually prepare for what’s coming. An impossible situation? Yes. But we’d be well-advised to recognize that it wouldn’t only be possible in the Twilight Zone.”

No, that’s not a typo. In 1776, residents of the American colonies took the very risky step of going to war with a then-powerful Britain – a War for Independence. At that time, it was quite a courageous act, one that was a direct result of grievances...

In the early twentieth century, there was an exodus out of Europe. George, my paternal grandfather, looked around England, where the family had been since the eleventh century, and decided that a national decline had begun. Although England was still very much an empire, it had fallen into the decline that ancient Rome had experienced before it. Where it had once expanded its possessions and profited from them, it was now spending millions of pounds maintaining them. The less profitable colonies were becoming a liability and the more profitable ones were breaking away.

Bloated governments around the world are faced with worsening fiscal conditions. Strapped for cash, they continue to squeeze every drop of wealth that’s within their reach through money printing and higher taxes. Today, we ask Jeff Thomas to weigh in on how to ensure you don’t become collateral damage in the next crisis.

Just prior to the turn of the millennium, I began to advise investors that the future would hold an economic crisis of epic proportions. At the time, I believed that it would begin between 2005 and 2010, with what I regarded to be a mini-event – the first stage of what would become the Greater Depression (a term coined by Doug Casey at that time, and one that I considered to be right on the money).

In 2006, Chile elected its first woman president, a socialist, Michelle Bachelet. Hopes were high that a dramatic change in both gender and political view might revitalize Chile. It did not. The experiment was a dramatic failure and only four years later, Chile switched sides and elected a conservative billionaire businessman, Sebastián Piñera.
