yup, the wheels are coming off all over the place and our political classes are still arguing over who to have a war of choice with next in order to line their own pockets.

Reality is gonna take the west by surprise and the day of reckoning is fast approaching.

There is also the question of the massive "super-rents" the likes of Cargill, Bunge, ADM, Monsanto are taking out between producer and consumer.

Aided and abetted by the US government of course: what's good for Cargill is good for the US!

I heard the other day that Cargill gets privileged access to US military/NSa etc satellite data so they can stay ahead of the game - and they are not even a "Public" corporation but the world's biggest private one.
