Fiat, Fascism and Communism

Another brick in the wall, Pink Floyd. Updated by the Swann’s sister in Law
  • Destruction of our natural resources
  • The obliteration of individual values
  • Mindless consumerism
  • Misallocated time, energy and intellectual resources
  • Rampant Speculation
  • Unnatural inequality (instead of 80/20, we get 99.9/0.01)
  • Extreme corruption at the top
  • Complete sloth, hopelessness & victimisation at the bottom
  • Nihilism and futility in the middle class
  • A world without a moral compass or a vision for the future

An unfair game

You fix the money, you fix the world.

That Hydra-Dragon is only missing “Democracy”

  • Hundreds of attempts, all around the world
  • >250m dead
  • Mass starvation
  • Mass poverty
  • Continual hyperinflation
  • Families, capital, societies and resources destroyed

Education

Another Brick in the Wall. Pink Floyd
  • Education is something we experience naturally. Humans are learning and problem solving machines. Our education starts as soon as we’re born and it continues on throughout our life. It does not require a “school”.
  • Schooling is the attempt to standardise and streamline education at scale. It’s useful in many ways, and especially early on in a child’s life when learning some basics is valuable. It’s biggest drawback is that it incentivises rote-learning and memorisation as opposed to real education due to the nature of it’s standardisation. This becomes even more of a problem when the “schooling” curriculum is designed and mandated by the state.

In Closing

Show me a regime change, and I will show you inflation.
