“They treat us like mushrooms. They keep us in the dark and feed us manure.”
–Old Soviet joke
The government providing false facts and figures about the economy in order to make it appear that “all is well” is an old practice.
The media serving as the mouthpiece for government is also an old practice.
These were tricks popular with the rulers of the old Soviet Union.
The Soviet government proclaimed record wheat harvests and tremendous economic gains while Russians (and others in that system) stood in line for hours for bread and toilet paper. The Soviet media was full of glorious and grand numbers and statistics which “proved” that the Soviet economy was humming along like a well-oiled machine. The Soviet system was great!
IF the individual was not happy, the fault was with the individual.
Like today’s America: if what a person experiences is different from what the government/media claims is reality?
It is that person’s fault: You are not working hard enough! Work harder!
The reader has a choice in such matters: either he can choose to believe what the government/media tells him is happening with the economy OR he can choose to believe what he sees happening around him.
There is still a lot of stored wealth in America. This was also true during the early 1920’s in Germany. However, when dealing with paper money, such wealth is an illusion.
So is was with 1920’s Germany.
So it is with 2016 America.
So it has been for the past ten years or so.
Biggest Payroll Gain In Almost Three Years Boosts U.S. Wages – The Corporate Media knows their happy-happy talk about the US economy isn’t believed. But they also have a goal of stoking anger–and this headline makes the majority of Americans who have to deal with a broken economy angry.
Party like it 1929; S and P hits 49th record closing high
The Dow Jones is at a record high – So, here’s a question for the reader: Does it feel like the USA is in a “boom?” IF the US economy is so vibrant, where are the jobs? Actually, where are the US jobs in the USA? There’s plenty of US jobs in China, in India, wherever: they’ve been moved overseas.
Middle class Americans–all the while telling those who are of less means to “Get a job!”–struggle to keep up; poor Americans sink deeper in hopeless poverty; the youth see their chances of living a lifestyle they have been taught is their birthright grow dimmer and less likely–and it’s all their fault!
“According to a new report, America’s teenagers are 30th in the world in math. Luckily, America’s teenagers will never understand the report because they’re 85th in reading.”
American urban areas are hollowed-out shells of what they once were,
Americans are NOW told that good jobs, once plentiful, have moved elsewhere because Americans no longer have a work ethic, the youth are lazy, foreign labor is cheap: the villains are many.
Jobs are another “proof” one is doing what one is supposed to do.
Don’t have a job?
What’s wrong with you? You must be lazy!
MEANWHILE, the Corporate Media is crammed with happy-happy talk of record high stock prices, record low unemployment figures and stories concerning the lives of the rich and celebrated.
Yes, this wicked world–stuffed with stuff and the things of this world–is winding down. The wicked will not prosper and this world is providing evidence of that.
There is coming a man who will “fix” much of what appears broken–at least for forty-two month, it will appear to be fixed.
Americans will flock to that man and his “answers.” Like always, citizens who have the right attitudes and behaviors will be rewarded with material wealth and “good times.”
And all it will cost them is their eternal souls.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
