Wow, a few hundred years of Spartan history in 6 paragraphs bu the author and 1 commenter.

Then there is that little "correlation infers causation" matter. "It was the iron coinage." "It was concentration of wealth in a few hands."

The "Law of Causation" requires cause precedes effect. You analyze the effects and claim they are the causes of end effect.

Oh, here is the classic:
"Who would wish to remain in a nation where they could not contribute to decisions affecting the nation's course? "
People don't leave over politics, they leave over economic security.
Wealth accumulates by one method only. By "NOT BEING USED". Lower usage, fewer jobs. No job in Sparta? Well then I'm headed for Thessalonica.

The problem with the study of economics is that it is as narrowly focused as the study of the history of American Wire Gauge.

Everything is connected to everything.
Everything has to go somewhere.
There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. TANSTAAFL

 How the Fed Operates — And Why It's a Problem
 - Frank Shostak - 
In a nutshell, the Fed facilitates the theft of the value of the dollar, as they can control the increase in supply which at the same time inverts the value of the same dollar. They've now taken 99+% of the original value of the dollar by this method, and then in turn obfuscate about the source of inflation as if it was some nebulous and undefined entity that is caused by something outside of their control. Awesome gig if you can get it, I guess.

 Where Are We Today?
 - Hugo Salinas Price -
Hmm I think there were some other countries fighting to defeat the Axis powers in addition to Great Britain and the USA. You may never see it reflected in the movies but pretty sure there were Australian Canadian New Zealand Indian Russian Polish etc. But the point of your article is well presented.

 America Too Broke to Fix Crumbling Infrastructure? “Bridges, Roads, Airports In Long Term Collapse”  (4)
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
Just like the leaders of the Bolshevik revolution were not Russians, those formulating belligerent US foreign policy are not Americans, and they hate people using gold and silver as money. They much prefer forcing others at gun point to use their fake money.

If you stopped spending so much money on the deep state, military and wars that protect you from nothing and make the world hate America, and stopped the ineffective war on drugs, you could easily finance infrastructure repair. Justice and democracy do not come from a gun barrel.

 Gold And Silver Stocks – The Bargain Of The Century
 - Egon von Greyerz - Matterhorn AM
"Tear down this wall!" is a line from a speech made by US President Ronald Reagan in West Berlin on June 12, 1987, calling for the leader of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, to open up the barrier which had divided West and East Berlin since 1961.[1] 30 Years later the clarion call should go out and that is ''OPEN THESE VAULTS'' Which should be a line from a speech made by US President Donald Trump in Fort Knox as soon as possible.Calling upon the Federal Reserve Bank of America's jannet yellen ,to open up the vaults which are suppose to hold a large part of america's hidden reserves. The GOLD has neither been seen or AUDITED for over 57 years. What we do know is that the I M F sold off huge chunks of GOLD during the late 1970's ,I think it was of the order of 400 tons per month which were auctioned by secret ballot. Bidders had to send their closely guarded envelopes with price and amount of GOLD they were going to BID for.These auctions were always well over subscribed. I have NO doubt that the vaults are empty and contain the best guarded dust in the world.

 Fumbling Towards Collapse  (6)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Now you tell me...old retired boomer that just bought a 426hp, 6 speed Camaro. Drive it into innercity cincinnati hopeing the 8th st viaduct, with its stage 4 concrete cancer, doesn't decide now is the tme to come down as I'm driving under it. Very thoughtful article, everyone knows we're broke, but as you say, playing " capture the flag" is more fun than having to deal with our brutal reality. But please continue to keep reality on the front burner anyway to offset the otherworld of illusion we live in. Thanks

 A Hole in the Head  (5)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
What's similar about Harding and Trump is they're single purpose presidents. Harding was a crook up there with the best of them and his marching orders when elected were to get as much money into the pockets of the already wealthy any way he could. Trump's no different except for his presence in the electronic age which enables him to siphon more of our wealth into the pockets of his friends and acquaintances, special interests and those still hanging about with their hands out from the days of ole Hank the Yanker Paulson. Oh, those politicians were so scared! when The Yanker told them they would have to give their banker friends a trillion dollars to prevent our country from falling apart!!! As I write this Trump is still in the set-up stage of his hustling con and when he finally reaches the take down end game there will be some irresistible, completely and absolutely irresistible national emergency that will result in heavily laden trucks, ships and aircraft carting what remains of our wealth into the hidden/disguised depositories of his cronies and friends. Some claim Trump has no respect for traditions. I disagree. He is maintaining in fine style some of America's longest standing traditions!

 Why Economists, Financial Types and the Media FAIL to Get the Trump Phenomenon  (4)
 - Phoenix Capital - Gains Pains & Capital
sir i differ greatly with you. the reason that small business has been under attack since the seventies and possibly befor is that the commies/one world order freaks know that its easier to have a big club of bastard oligarks all running the pens,fountain and sheep,than to have millions of men and women with real skin in the game who also have the vote. as for the press and the fake economists;you said it."The fact that many continue to see Trump through the lens of identity politics only shows how disconnected the media has become from reality." They are only disconnected from the reality of the continuation of The United States of America. because for generations and until this hour they "struggle" to affect its demise. this is all a result of the Rot of Europe. look no further than the EU to observe what these pricks have in mind for us.
