Confidence Game | Armstrong Economics

“The vast majority of people want to believe in some definitive higher power. Like the conspiracy issue. People just cannot grasp that perhaps there is nobody really in charge orchestrating everything and we are at the mercy of the whims of finance. I took my son-in-law to Washington for some high level meetings. I told him he better think twice before stepping behind the curtain for he really did not want to see what I see. When we left Capital Hill, he was stunned to realize that this is a runaway train. There is nobody in charge. All they do is try to deal with each crisis as it appears. There is no long-term strategy and certainly no planning. Everyone creates wonderful conspiracy theories trying to create plots of destroying the world with no rational comprehension that the people they are fantasizing about just are not that smart.”
