We Live In Interesting Times: How to Profit In a World On Fire
American cities are on fire.
Looters and rioters are burning churches and destroying businesses, big and small. Last night, they even tried to break through the Secret Service and into the White House.
President Trump tweeted that the US will be designating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization. Then he escaped into a bunker for the night.
The corporate press will tell you that white supremacists have co-opted otherwise innocent protests of police brutality.
Some people will tell you this is a deep state plot. Others will say it’s more Russian interference. Still others contend that China wants revenge for Trump pulling out of the WHO and lambasting their treatment of Hong Kong.
Who knows which story is true? Perhaps all of them are.
The one thing they all have in common, though, is that they’re all about one thing: power.
We’re witnessing the collapse of the American empire. When empires collapse, they splinter. We know this from studying history. Power struggles crop up everywhere as everyone jockeys for their cut of the spoils.
Lots of people will preach doom and gloom to you. Fear reigns supreme.
There’s no doubt that we live in interesting times. But there’s no reason for fear; fearful people are easily controlled.
Those who seek will find. And those who put aside the distractions and focus on controlling their own lives will find the opportunities they seek.
The opportunities are abundant. You just have to start looking for them.
All will be well.
