It used to be that the experts were consistently wrong, meaning they at least agreed with one another at the same time. Now they are all disagreeing . . . none of which makes any sense. Of course, if they wanted to make sense, they would have adopted the Economic Democracy Act decades ago, but until then, this is what we get:

As Marisa Tomei’s character said in My Cousin Vinnie (still in the running as “Best Lawyer Movie Ever”), it’s a frickin’ nightmare (or words to that effect). The Keynesians and their clones are desperately trying to come up with explanations and new catch phrases to sweep what they claimed was impossible under the rug. Again.

It’s astonishing how much the news items seem to be the same week after week . . . what with the same old people doing the same old things. Many of these, if not all, could be resolved by adopting the Economic Democracy Act — so it might not matter all that much, except that the degree of the problem is increasing, although not the essence thereof:

There’s a very old and very bad joke about the optimist who fell out of a skyscraper window. As he passed some of the floors on the way down, people would call out to him, “How’s it going?” and he’d reply, “Doing fine so far!”

Not that it’s much of a surprise, but this week’s news items strongly resemble those of last week! I know, you’re absolutely flabbergasted. Fortunately, since the recommended solution is the same this week as last week — viz., adopt the Economic Democracy Act — so it might not matter all that much, except that the degree of the problem is increasing, although not the essence thereof:

Small or conservative investors are typically told that government debt is the safest and most conservative type of investment they can have. Of course, given the current level of political stability in the world, that might not be saying much.

It’s been yet another week of Federal Reserve follies, with all the experts thinking they’re smarter than what experience and intelligence has long proved to be the case: that Keynesian economics and the Currency Principle simply don’t work, nor can they. For such gloomy people, they continually rely on the triumph of optimism over experience and think if they just keep doing what hasn’t worked for nearly a century it’s bound to work sometime . . . or they could do the rational thing and adopt the Economic Democracy Act:

Economists and their political stooges . . . or maybe that’s politicians and their economic stooges (it’s so hard to keep that straight these days in a Keynesian plutocracy) profess to be terrified and worried and even a trifle concerned about the possibility of the U.S. Dollar losing its place as the primary global reserve currency.

It appears as if China is at the top of the economic news, along with the usual confusion about inflation. Of course, all this would be moot if some country would just adopt the Economic Democracy Act, but what do you want, a miracle?

We’ve repeated this so many times on this blog that most of our readers should have this memorized by now, but we’ll do it again anyway, if only for old times’ sake. The “first principle of reason” can be stated in two ways, one positive and one negative. The positive statement of the first principle of reason is called the law or principle of identity. It can be stated, “That which is true is as true, and is true in the same way, as everything else that is true.”

Well, we lost the bet. We were sure he’d drop off a balcony, fall down some stairs, or shoot his entire family after doing away with himself. And in other news, all the so-called experts are still jumping up and down about situations that could probably either be ameliorated or solved simply by adopting the Economic Democracy Act:, which is outlined in The Greater Reset which you can get in any quantity for $5 a copy until the end of August, available from TAN Books, an imprint of Saint Benedict Press:

Over on Medium, we’ve been working on a series of articles on the dangers of reparations and inflation as they related to the rise of Adolf Hitler. Unfortunately, as is the case with many things about the Just Third Way, people see a word used in an unexpected or unfamiliar way and immediately assume they Know All About It . . . especially when they know little or nothing. They bring their own baggage to the discussion and nothing on Earth is going to shake them loose from their preconceptions, especially not empirical evidence, or logical consistency.

The REAL news this week is that you can get The Greater Reset in any quantity for $5 a copy until the end of August, available from TAN Books, an imprint of Saint Benedict Press. Just sayin’. The rest of the news is All About Inflation That Isn’t There Except When It Is. In other words, another spate of reasons for adopting the Economic Democracy Act:

In the United States, people are witnessing cities and states carving out spaces separate from the federal government. Some cities reaffirm their commitment as sanctuaries and develop policies to direct local officials to defuse irrational and unjust conflicts, but that’s just the beginning.

The objectives of the “Heart of America” project are to eradicate the economic roots of poverty, war, and racism. This can be done by promoting justice and democratization of ownership for every person through equal access to private property rights in productive capital. In the words of R. Buckminster Fuller, the goal is “[t]o make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”
