Paul Craig Roberts, How Much Death and Destrution Awaits Us in 2018?
Paul Craig Roberts has a PhD in economics and tells it as it is. Enjoy:
On August 31, 2006, President Bush flew to Salt Lake and met with Gordon B. Hinckley who was then the president of the Mormon Church. See President Bush mourns Gordon B. Hinckley

Paul Craig Roberts wrote, “His reward for speaking out was to have his tenure contract bought out by BYU, many believe under orders from the federal government backed up with the threat that all federal support of science at BYU would be terminated unless Stephen Jones was.” — 9/11 Destroyed America
People get born into the world as it exists so the new ones don’t know how it used to be so to them tight living standards are normal. They don’t know that it used to be a much higher standard of living. And so it is entirely possible the entire population will accept this if it is gradual over time. If it is quick or sudden, they may revolt. We just don’t know how it will play out. — Paul Craig Roberts. Jump to 15:39
Paul Craig Roberts thinks this is nuts, and asks Is the Russian Government Insouciant?
I agree that the focus should be on ending the refugee problems by ending the wars of aggression.
This author is correct: If President-Elect Trump really wants to drain the swamp and install a family of like-minded leaders who oppose the oligarchy, he should interview Paul Craig Roberts for Secretary of State.
Wrote Paul Craig Roberts in response to the above article:
My thanks to the many readers who expressed their wishes that I would be Trump’s Secretary of the Treasury and to Rahul Manchanda for his tribute in Veterans News Now.
The oligarchy did not lose the election by a large enough margin for me to be confirmed as Secretary of the Treasury. I would bring into the Treasury people like Michael Hudson, James Galbraith, Herman Daly, Pam Martens, Nomi Prins. I would put Dave Kranzler in charge of financial regulation and have him break up the Fed’s rigging of the bullion market. Ellen Brown’s campaign for public banks would be given impetus. The issue of abolishing the Federal Reserve and bringing the power back into the Treasury would be examined.
The American electorate gave too much support to the oligarchy’s candidate for such major changes to be possible. The American people have some more waking up to do. Major change requires a runaway electoral victory for the American people, the equivalent of a revolution.
If Trump proves to be sincere, let’s support him on the main issues and build momentum for the future. — The Tide Is Turning Against the Oligarchs — Paul Craig Roberts
Paul Craig Roberts is also correct that either humans will defeat the oligarchs peacefully or they will rise up and defeat them physically. I don’t understand why psycho wealthy people think they must own everything when at death, like everyone else, they lose it all and will own nothing.
Trump was elected because he said:
“Those who control the levers of power in Washington and the global special interests they partner with, don’t have your good in mind. It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities. The only thing that can stop this corrupt machine is you.”
If Trump can defeat the oligarchy and save America, he can go down in history as Trump the Great. I think that this prospect appeals to Trump more than more wealth. Instead of trying to tear him down in advance, he should be supported. With Trump’s determination and the people’s support, change from the top down is possible. Otherwise, change has to come from the bottom up, and that means an awful lot of blood in the streets.
