Perhaps It’s Time to Believe the Impossible


Cognitive Dissonance



"Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things." "I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." - Alice in Wonderland.

Unintended Consequences: Creating More Debt by Trying to Make Less

Towards the end of my recent radio interview (@ 1:48:00) we briefly discussed the financial system illusion, the potential for social disruptions that would result from the deconstruction of the system and the process of withdrawing or disentangling from the system itself. I mentioned to the interviewer an ironic twist that may result from disentangling or withdrawing to some degree or another from the system.
