BANKSTERS PLANNED THE Economic Tsunami of 2008!
Pretend you're writing a mystery novel. Every mystery needs a corpse on the first page. Ours is the American financial tsunami. Now, first thing the reader will want to know, (and the author too, while he's structuring it) is WHO the *%@*@(*%)@&%* DUNNIT?
The author does NOT KNOW when he sits down so he sets OUT to find a believable chain of events. In his mind he knows that the TORTURE, RAPE AND DEATH of Wall Street gives us a commanding crime, a real attention getter. Well, it should automatically give us a set of suspects, right? So he makes a list.
SUSPECT #1. THE COMMIES. THE RUSKIS and CHINKS, right? That worked for the last ten American presidents. The commie's a convenient villain, easy to hate. Put a face on it, we use Joe Stalin. Perfect villain. The crash was planned by the pinko LIBERALS of the world, you know the sort, envious of the dollar, envious of the fast American economy. Cursed by famine and suppression, they hate the Free Market and the Free living Land of the free......
Immediately the author knows that won't wash. Cuz ECONOMY 101 isn't like TENNIS where one side absolutely has to lose. This is a dialectic, where two opposites, yin and yang, spiral upwards each fulfilling the polar destiny to the other. So the writer scratches that possibility.
SUSPECT #2 - THE LAZY AMERICAN WORKER. Now, that's your target audience, right, how can the writer indict the WORKER BEE for the loss of the HIVE. That's bad writing. Besides most drones are working two full time jobs, husband and wife. We need a virus, an infection in the HIVE, hmmmm what could that be?
SUSPECT #3 THE WORLD BANKERS. Nahhh. How could that be true. They wouldn't destroy what they built up. Is there any logic to that? Well, it's a stretch but let's see, it might work. We know they were guilty for the prime rate mortgage meltdown. OK. His pencil's flying while our Agatha Christie 's connecting the dots or how else could he write it? He has to string a trail of crumbs betwen the corpse and the malfactor and see if it's a logical sequence..
The author needs to know WHY would BANKERS DO THAT?? What is the CUI BONUM? Nobody kills the corpse they've got to eat, do they? Well, Meat eaters do, but let's put it this way. Nobody kills the GOLDEN GOOSE that lays the egg. Nobody kills that, right?
YEAH but you gotta understand -- THIS GOOSE has miraculous properties. It dies and comes back to life once a century and they damn well know it. (Ok, so we're writing a Stephen King novel. What's the dif? They sell well, too.) In our story, in our plot, the Banksters have this immortal bird called THE GOLD MAKER. They are first in line always to get all its eggs. They needed the PUBLIC to raise the goose, to feed it, to fatten it. Now, suddenly, it's like a POKER POT. It's gotten seriously HUGE. So what do cardplayers do? They bluff and LIE and SUCKER in more bets and then they out of nowhere need to shake as many cretins' hands free of that poker pot, off the BANKERS' fat, GOLDEN GOOSE (by grabbing all the chips in play on the board, grabbing our money and do it neat! Like in one fell swoop. And do a believable 'Huh, how did that happen?' and get the hell out of Dodge. They go laughing out into the street their pockets jingling.
Then, they let a generation pass so the geriatrics die out, then the kids, well kids are kids. They forget the lore of the previous generation, just as the Dust Bowl Depression homeless who couldn't plant and earn forgot. Just as the 20's Surge investors who put their life savings into the dustbowl of Wall Street and then couldn't get anything out of it ---forgot.
All the CAUSE AND EFFECT WISDOM is forgotten by the Hoipolloi who don't keep records of cause and effect trends. So the BANKSTERS who DO keep cause and effect trend records wait 75 years and strike again. They lured us into buying overpriced crap....they are like a TOY THIEF who enchants all the kids on the block so they are sucked into being VERY PRODUCTIVE for a while. They work hard at their job, (disguised slave labor) and save like little squirrels, they buy both property and stock. Then, thebanksters comealong like a big wind and shake all the nuts off the tree. The Chaff goes bankrupt and are out of this cruel Darwinian game. Extraneous to the evolutionary process is anyone who bought into a variable rate on overpriced property during a surge. Penalty? Head squirrel gets his nuts! That was a whole decade's worth of NUTS!!!!!! DAMNIT!
Then there are the unseen, metaphysical causes of a mass meltdown. If you're so dumb you buy in a surge, and take a variable rate you're like that DARWIN contest they have each year. You know, guys who put a stick of dynamite in their mouth and go into a barbecue? You're part of the group that votes itself out of the GENE POOL!
OTHER CRIME WRITERS check out this PLOT and POINT OUT: What about the logic of THE BIG BANKS now having to BAIL OUT THE LITTLE BANKS? Isn't that inconvenient for them? Accusing them of putting a bullet in each of their friends? Never wash!
WALL STREET STOLE TOO MUCH, LOST PRESTIGE, destroyed its own USE to the IMF/ FED and the BIG BANKS who now SIMPLY SHIFTED ALLEGIANCE. That PLOT REALLY COOKS! This implies the BIG BANKS wanted America sent to the back of the TRAIN! They have new candidates for the HIGH PROFIT INVESTMENTS!
GREENSPAN did it with the CREDIT BUBBLE! Now he's a pathetic villain cuz he's old, bent over, lackluster looks, no Dr. No! But he's Jewish. But we used them last time. I know. He may have been demented by too much Deli. He has MADCOW disease. Too much decision power in the hands of Dr. Demento! That might work.
KARL MARX WROTE THIS PLOT ALREADY, He said Transnationals would OUTSOURCE
NAFTA, GATT AND WTO ORG AGREEMENTS ALLOWED OUTSOURCING. Now DETROIT is a SLUM and INDIA makes BANK!
The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out...without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest,insane,intolerable. -H.L.Mencken
