"Is everything gonna be all right"?

This is the question Ron Holland raises in
a recent article, and of course the only answer is, no one really knows. "My advice is to legally diversify much of your wealth outside your home country, currency and the political leeches running everything and then live your life." What else can we do? We can pay close attention to the big banks and the governments they fund.

1. "As a contrarian I believe if the PIIGS return to their national currencies, this could actually benefit both them and those northern European nations remaining in the euro. While a win/win situation for individual nations this would be catastrophic for the banking elites and they seldom lose and why I believe the banks and EU politicians will do their best to keep every nation in the EU."

2. "If you want to know what will happen in the US, just watch the mega-bank bailouts in Europe and the forced austerity measures on the already bankrupt PIIGS and their citizens, this is our future. Forget what the politicians promise, the financial experts say or the establishment news propaganda as the tide of wealth confiscation will also sweep the United States. The Federal Reserve and central bank cartels have created too much fiat money and the politicians have borrowed too much sovereign debt to buy votes and they will steal your wealth to prop up the governments, banking elites and political establish."

3. The Super Committee, as expected, has turned out to be a Super Farce. "Basically nothing will happen in reducing the budget and our debt will be continually downgraded."

4. Could a Middle East war jack oil prices up to $200 a barrel? If Israel gets its way, there will be war against Iran. Oil prices could soar. A revolution in Egypt could cause further havoc in the Middle East.

5. Governments will crack down hard on dissenters, as witnessed in Egypt and the United States. Police are no longer "peace officers." They are fast becoming militarized -
even in the schools. Law and order will be reduced to obey or else.

6. "If the firewall around the sovereign debt of Italy fails then the entire continent will likely be thrown into a prolonged recession and debt crisis as rising interest rates and falling bond prices jump the Atlantic to the final western redoubt of stable government bonds, the United States. This is what everyone fears most, no place of safety in the West."

7. Was the MF Global Collapse "a deliberate attack against those making money speculating against the dollar and favoring gold?" As Lawrence Lepard
wrote recently,

Personally, I have $90,000 at MF Global and I would like to have my honestly earned money returned. Unfortunately, the odds of that happening any time soon seem slim. In part because when MF Global entered bankruptcy the judge appointed a Trustee whose law firm has done substantial work for JP Morgan, a deeply interested party. We will probably never find out what happened here. . . .

I, for one, do not accept that Jon Corzine is stupid enough to lever up MF Global 40:1 and use the proceeds and customer money to bet on European sovereign debt. This was a hit, pure and simple. That is why there is no resolution to the problem.

And why a "hit"? Simple: To punish commodities speculators for betting against government debt and fiat money.

So, how in the world can we wake up feeling optimistic about the future? We can't. That's asking too much. The government parasite is too big and powerful. And the government is imploding, financially.

Holland: "My answer is to quit worrying, take sound preparations and then get on with your life. Every generation and nation have had their trials and tribulations, success and failures and although today looks eerily like the 1930’s, this too will pass."

True. But it will be a brutal passage for many.
