I wholeheartedly agree.

"Everyone should know."

I wholeheartedly agree.

At the dawn (yes, it is still *only* the dawn) of this information age, we keep losing millenniums-old past wisdom about sound, simple economics.

The Peoples have been deceived for more than a century now, if it's not longer, by the new breed ... of LIARS. THIEVES. ENVY FREAKS. CONTROL FREAKS.

Or even, all of the above.

That used to be Marx. This is now about Keynes, taught in mainstream academia to students enjoying iPhones and 24/7 access to an ubiquitous WWW, yet NOT EVEN KNOWING any longer WHAT exactly REAL money is supposed to be, and to be used for.

But of course, it all started (or rather, continued) with an even older betrayal, probably the only one that predates the great economic confusion, allowing the latter to bring on its harm:

The Betrayal against LANGUAGE.

EVERYTHING is economic AND linguistic. Or linguistic AND economic. Pick your order preference.

A yard is a yard. A pound is a pound. A gallon is a gallon.

The Bible (and other, non religious, texts) warned us against elasticity and loose definitions.

And with contempt and recklessness or laziness, the peoples failed to pay enough attention or care to remember.

And got fooled. By the LIARS. PARASITES. CROOKS. Intellectual or practical : doesn't matter. Same breed of those who thrive on insulting human intelligence AND memory.

Whoever claims to care about their own freedoms has no longer any excuse to continue disregard History, Language, and Economics.

Irony:

a seven (or 8, or 9, or etc) year old who has started collecting and trading baseball players cards has BETTER knowledge about trade, honesty, the value of research, and scarcity than most of the adults who surround him ... before they corrupt him, his turn.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
