The problem with a great depression scenario is that it is too optimistic.
Any economic collapse resulting from the kind of run away money printing that the federal reserve has been doing to the tune of trillions upon trillions of dollars will be catastrophic. In Zimbabwe, where they kill white farmers for sport, the nation started on the path to hyperinflation, creating starving millionaires overnight.
America has printed far more dollars than Mugabe could have ever dreamed.
But the biggest reason that this collapse will be so spectacular isn't even the money printing and pits of bottomless debt - as bad as these things are. No, this collapse will be more spectacular because of what's missing: morals and independence.
Weaned on a culture of marxist collectivism and secular humanism, Americans have lost much of the spirit of their ancestors who lived through the great depression and two world wars. Back then, there was community, and as bad as things were, for every hand out, there was someone prepared to put something in hand for those less fortunate.
Liberals have replaced the many hands of real community and moral fiber, with the one giant hand of government. When the government falls, however, that big hand will be empty, and too few will be the little hands of the community.
With radical feminism, the family unit, the core of any civilization, has been ravaged. Child poverty rates have been on a steady rise since its inception, as more and more families are parented by one parent alone. Churches lay vacant, and are often used as bingo parlors, or rent-a-halls. Where America was mostly agrarian, today, it is mostly post apocalyptic industrial. Individuals rely on 'experts' for their repairs now, and no longer have a play book to go to on morals. Sadly, the morals imparted to this generation are: if you can get away with it, then take it, it's yours. Self sacrifice has given way to narcissism.
So all of this dependence of course leads to increased costs. Now we have to pay for daycare centers, and people to care for the sick and elderly. Now everything that was once given freely, has been monetized. Government has ballooned past the point of even being sustainable in its attempt to replace moms, and churches, and neighborhoods.
The collapse, when it comes, will be spectacular. And, I don't think there will be anything even remotely resembling America when the smoke clears."
