Movie About Financial Collapse
A couple of weeks ago I saw a movie that was a very shallow metaphor about the financial crisis from 2008. There was a scene in the movie that is similar to many scenes in many movies where they have the expert looking at another character and explaining to this other character in very simple terms the exact nature of the problem.
The second character is usually a proxy for the audience and so the audience can imagine that the expert in the movie is talking to them directly and explaining to them directly the exact nature of the problem.
I was walking out I noticed there was two guys in front of me that were talking about the movie. They seemed to be using some advanced terms of economics. I suspected that these two men were economists or the at least knew much more than I did about the nature of the movie and the nature of the crisis.
I asked them, I said is that movie accurate? Did that movie really describe what happened back in 2008? They waited a moment looked at each other and kind of gave me a, “yeah sort of,” answer but I asked them further what they ment.
They said that while the movie accurately explained what was going on the way it was presented on a surface structure level, whenever there is such a deep financial crisis like that, there is always much more going on here than anybody realizes.
I asked them if they could explain it to me and the guy thought about it and he said, “Let me tell you a story.”
Noble But Naive King
Once upon a time there was an ancient king and this was right in the beginning of societies where they started to get really really large and it became a problem to calculate how much food was needed to feed everybody.
In the very early beginnings of these earliest societies there was usually several families kind of banding together to create these very small agricultural communities. Once they started to get really really large they needed some type of management.
They needed somebody to understand how to specifically grow crops. How to maximize the amount of food out of the ground. That’s what this king was very very good at. He was very intuitive in knowing exactly what crops to grow and where. How to slowly manage the irrigation systems, to slightly alter the flow of the natural water to maximize the amount of food they could get out.
Stretched To His Intuitive Limits
He knew intuitively how to store the excess, so that when times were lean his people would still have enough to eat. He was very open and transparent with all of his dealings, but as soon as society started to get really really large it started to stretch the limits of his intuitive capabilities.
He realized he needed help from someone, but this was way back when people never really did this kind of thing before. These people came in from a distant land and they said they knew how to read and write and knew basic ideas about accounting. They knew basic ideas about mathematics.
Of course nobody back then knew what accounting and writing and mathematics was. A lot of historians tell us this is the exact reason that accounting and mathematics and writing was invented. To kind of keep track of and manage the resources needed to run an early society.
You Guys Know What To Do?
This King accepted their help, and for a while they really really helped them. The problem was the king didn’t really understand their techniques and their methods because he was a very intuitive farmer he was a very intuitive leader he did know how to use these advanced skills. Back then because nobody knew what the skills were to them it was indistinguishable from magic.
This is the idea, this is where we get the idea, that back in the early days of civilizations you had these kings and you have these wizards. But in reality these wizards weren’t practicing real magic they were actually the very first economists.
The first people that could count and manage and keep track numerically of all the king’s stuff. But the problem was if these accountants, if these economists came in from a different area they didn’t feel any kind of responsibility for the local people.
It was perfectly fine and it was very very good if they came from the local people, if they were a product of the local society and they just happened to know these techniques, then they felt a very strong sense of compassion and protective knowledge about their people. They wanted very much to use their skills to protect their people.
If the people came from a distant land they invariably started to use their skills to steal from the people. Once these people realized that everybody trusted them and once these people realize that everybody thought of them as magicians that’s when they started to steal.
These people from this first kingdom would bring in their friends and they would bring in more friends and over the years they would have a whole collection of their friends from foreign lands that were equally skilled in these early forms of black magic. This very first kingdom was robbed completely. The people were left with nothing. They were very sad. They starved and they all died.
I thought, Jesus Christ and that’s a horrible story! What was, I mean what’s the moral of the story? He said most people have this idea that back then there was these kings and wizards but in reality life today is exactly the same as it was back then.
The people that run our economies are not really that clever and so they need to hire these economists and these bankers to manage the monetary systems. The bankers and the economists that run our monetary systems are just as corrupt and just as evil as those ancient black magicians.
That’s what happened in the last financial crisis. These black magicians stole from everybody and they will continue to steal from everybody and they’re planning right now to steal from everybody again.
Never Trust Economists
The problem is because nobody really understands the nature of their work, nobody really understands banking and economics, nobody understands it because these people, these modern black magicians, they make things so purposely complicated everybody just trusts them.
This is the most dangerous thing we can do because just like back then as soon as we trust them and we don’t understand what they’re doing that is the worst possible combination we can have. That is exactly what we have today and that is exactly why they are going to rob us over and over and over again.
