Good to hear from you again Blayne. I was just thinking of you the other day wondering if you were still around. Since you are reading some recent keys writings you might want to read some of the local posts I where I did battle with Statesman readers over political issues.
Both you and Maryellen have asked my opinion of recent issues and where we are headed as a country.
As I have said many times specific future events are often impossible to predict because of all the variables. No person who has ever lived has been proven to be right on them consistently. Even the Masters stay away from specific details and rely on the reoccurrence of cycles and evolutionary developments for most of their accurate prophecies.
Right now the economy is certainly in a precarious state. If we had some type of perfect storm occur the economy of the whole world could descend to chaos. If there was just one major event investor fears could be triggered and our economy could sink into a depression much worse than we now have.
If we just continue as is with the tremendous overspending then our economy will continue to sink.
There are two things that give me optimism.
First, at the moment, I do have a sense of well-being and feel no sense of panic for the immediate future. I would interpret this to mean that we yet have some time to set things straight. On the other hand, a powerful unforeseen incident affecting the financial world could change direction quickly.
Secondly, people are waking up to our precarious financial situation and are starting to demand that our representatives be more responsible.
Congress has ultimate power over the budget and if there is a major political shift in the 2010 election solid financial steps could be taken even if Obama wants to continue reckless spending. Such spending could come to a halt.
I would say that we have a 50/50 chance of coming out of this financial situation without having a great depression. A lot depends on the developing power of public consciousness on financial issues. The salvation of heightened public consciousness is racing against the opening of a bottomless pit of financial mismanagement.
Less talked about is freedom. Some of our freedoms may be in more danger than our money. There is also a race against time to prevent many of them from being taken away.
Concerning the oil spill …
Some people think the may be a conspiracy behind it or possible sabotage was involved. I do not believe this is the case, but I do think that there are many who are false environmentalists who seek greater power over our lives who have been waiting for a major event like this to occur. This and other catastrophes will be used by them to increase their foothold of power.
The lights of the earth must also use events like these to the advantage of the country and the world. We can use them as an excuse to develop more nuclear power or to drill in safer areas like ANWR.
The statement is ever true that evil triumphs when good men do nothing. Those pushing us to the edge of disaster press forward with about five times the energy of those who claim to want greater freedom and responsibility. This is somewhat disheartening, but the good news is there is a sleeping giant out there that can be awakened. Let us hope the responsible people of the country can wake up before it is too late.
I’m starting my television show Tuesday where I will be presenting Molecular politics. I’ll post the exact time and link later and members can watch it on the Internet.
