The concept of means of exchange has been re-initiated in America, much to the chagrin of many. FDR’s Great Society has been overturned by great numbers of hippies and flower children imposing on the system, with our desperate reaction to our psychedelia, in spite of the advantages it set up for psychology and psychiatry, because of the debilitating psychosis we were reduced to.
The ensuing psychosis, mental illness, disability – call it what you will, has been set forth in too great numbers of young people, by the end of the 1970s, at too great a price to government generosity, to do anything but shut down Federal Welfare altogether. The numbers didn’t fit, and even the great and powerful US of A has to make the numbers fit somehow. We’re talking millions of kids.
Psychosis was the prevailing reaction to ingesting all forms of psychedelia, in fact, it was an epidemic at Woodstock, Haight Ashbury, and all across the nation, in the early 1970s. It was a government cover up also. Attempt to keep the gasoline off the fire. People cast themselves on the country, and we’re talking about handling a major epidemic of mental illness in this country.
Like it or not, the country and the world function based on a means of exchange, and the free ride, paid for by a reasonable taxation of the workforce, has been too greatly imposed upon, and canceled as a method of exchange. Now it’s either Money, or Time Value of Money, in exchange for goods and services. The plan is to transition payment to Time Value of Money altogether.
With the Time Value of Money, Credit, there are four values in the equation. Present Value, Future Value, Payment and Percentage Rate. It’s next to impossible to keep track of all those variables in your thinking. The note holder wins, the payor looses. It’s that simple. If you break the values down to easy payments, you end up paying more than the actual value of what you’re buying.
If the only way you can possess comforts, is to pay less over a longer period of time, you’ve got to accept that you are over paying for the item. The plan is to convert all payment to the Time Value of Money, in order to have a winner and looser in every transaction. This is the current plan for the Have Not’s to at least have temporary possession of goods and services. Nothing is free or fair in life.
