See, this is what I'm talking about when I refer
to "human thermodynamics". Think about it: for
"Nod Heed" to post the above, many humans had to
do many things. Humans had to design computers,
build them, design and build computer networks,
design and build the client/server software and
the underlying operating systems, maintain and
monitor the servers which required even more
humans to provide electricity and design and
build the buildings housing the servers, and all
of THOSE people required food, shelter, transportation,
EDUCATION, health care, etc., requiring even more
humans to diligently toil at those tasks.
All of those people have to work so that the
angry senile useless stupid old geriatric "God Peed"
can make hundreds of worthless idiotic posts
from his rest home, and in return, HE PROVIDES
ABSOLUTELY NO VALUE TO THE "ECONOMY" AT ALL.
Now, multiply that by HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of
"retirees" around the world, and a person of
average intelligence should be able to spot
the "human thermodynamic" disequilibrium, which
will of course be reflected in the monetized
"economy", primarily as sky-rocketing "debt"...

Post count: not increasing as rapidly as it
OK, the first 200 times this was kind of funny,
I didn't take it personally because "Bod Fleaed"
is obviously such a fun kidder, but now I'm
beginning to get a little peeved...another 300
of these, I'll be PISSED (well, a little)...

Post count: the number isn't that important,
I knew it..."Sod Peed" has no ability to post anything
except repetitive dumb insults about people being "pig
ignorant"...he could have said what I, as an intelligent
human, would have said if asked: "I think BP should make
whole all the people who have been harmed by this spill
and that while I agree in general principle with a ban
on deep-sea drilling because of an obvious inability
of the industry to guarantee the prevention of catastrophe's
of this nature, I also agree with the judge that overturned
Obama's moratorium as being overly broad and more punitive
in nature, because I believe the industry can prevent
catastrophic spills at depths included in the moratorium."
See how easy it is (for me) to make an intelligent post?
Why can't you do the same? If you aren't intellectually
able, maybe you should consider not posting at all.

Dunno about *that*, but in various historical examples, regimes

If all you look at is the violence in Chile, you miss at
least half the story. Allende did everything wrong that it is
possible to do wrong. When a poor country nationalizes a big
industry, you pretty much guarantee pariah status for the
Point being that even Communism aside, Niall Ferguson calls
the social program largesse of Allende the cause of his downfall
(and many people disagree). Had Allende been as successful as Chavez
has been in Venezuela, it would have been much more difficult for a CIA
coup to be orchestrated. The case as presented to Nixon was that of a
power vacuum, with multiple coup attempts prior to the Pinochet one.
As it turns out, the KGB were no longer interested, but they were
apparently the only ones who knew that.
But no sitting American President could tolerate another Cuba.
Obama's even shot stern words across Chavez' bow.
If people saved sufficient to provide for themselves, we certainly would
have a very different equilibrium. This is one case where I'll
stipulate to your description as "religious" - it really does
mainly come from scriptural strictures, of "the debtor is
slave to the lender" variety.
We don't have a *clue* how to manage deflation to this day. It's
kind of shocking.
