I keep hearing that old hymn about “Nothing but the blood”

We are already seeing communist movements, moreover these movements are in sympathy with many of the current “terrorist” groups. They are also supporting gun rights in the United States.

They would like to revolt in peaceful ways but note that most such movements are crushed with violence.

It appears that the end of the current system is inevitable. Demographics demand deflation. Deflation destroys fractional reserve banking. Negative interest rates are the fever to the world wide systemic demographic driven deflation.

It is probably just a matter of which breaks under the strain first: the fractional reserve banking system, or the western form of the political system.

I suspect that the end will be the same for the oligarchy.

The mob’s chant will have something to do with “Nothing but the blood” and many will long for the good old days of 90 percent income taxes and extremely high estate taxes. It is better to pay taxes than to molder in a burial mound.
