  • Broken Signals
    • We're focusing on the wrong priorities, in the wrong order
  • Dangerous Hubris
    • We've removed critical buffers to risk
  • Tax Donkeys & Debt Serfs
    • The many are in servitude to the few
  • Late-Stage Empire Decline
    • Signs of it are everywhere in our economy & society

Charles breaks down for Chris how the masses are trapped by today's economy, forced to work harder and harder for a system that rewards them less and less, while the elites and unneccessary bureaucracy syphon off what profits remain.
