    It's time to lessen your dependence on our failing institutions

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith discuss:

    • Society’s fatal flaws and it’s inability to acknowledge them
    • Reducing your dependence on central institutions is one of the best investments to make today
    • Reclaiming your food production produces valuable health, self-reliance and spiritual returns

    The unrest rippling through society today is awakening more and more of us to the flaws of our current system. The benefits concentrate among too few, and those controlling the system seem happy to commit regular fraud to maintain their power and advantage. More and more of the masses are realizing that the inequity they are experiencing is an intentional feature of the system, not a glitch.

    It is fair? No. Will it continue? Most likely yes, until things collapse from over-exploitation or civil overthrow. The important thing to do now, as Charles lays out, is to focus your frustration on constructive investments that reduce your dependence on our failing institutions…

    Ideas For Righteous Revolution

    Exploring additional options for positive societal change

    The current system is not going to willingly change. Those who control it receive too much benefit from the status quo to give up their advantage by choice.

    Therefore, success in changing the status quo lies in making it too painful to continue.

    Which leads to the questions: How can we, the oppressed masses, do that? What agency do we have?

    As The World Burns

    Personal safety & security are quickly becoming more important in this era of growing social rage

    I wish I believed that the worst of the social unrest was behind us. I don’t. Given the deeply unfair actions of the Federal Reserve and the total lack of any pushback from the media, I anticipate growing social unrest for many years to come.

    Which means it’s time for you to more seriously consider your approach to personal security, especially if you live in or near a city. I certainly am.

    Neil Howe: Expect Creative Destruction In This Fourth Turning

    We're entering the era when a new order violently replaces the old
    by Adam Taggart

    Fourth turnings are characterized by a growing demand for social order, yet supply of it remains weak. The emergence of the surveillance state, a perpetual war machine, increased intervention in failing markets by the central planners, greater government control of critical systems like health care and the Internet — all of these are classic fourth turning signs of the desperation authorities exert as they lose control.

    History shows time and time again that such overreach ends in rejection of the current order, usually via violent revolution.

    Off The Cuff: The People Are Rising Up Against The Elites

    The working classes have hit their breaking point
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith discuss:

    • Class Warfare
      • Growing tenions between the rural/worker vs urban/financier classes
    • Why The Yellow Vest Movement Matters
      • It represents a populist anger brewing around the world
    • Financialization & Globalization Are The Disease
      • They give the elites tremendous advantage over everyone else
    • The Empire Is Striking Back
      • The global establishment is squashing unrest by every means it has

    Chris continues to track the Yellow Vest protests across France Europe because it's representative of a populist ire festering around the globe. Decades of financialization and globalization have created a parasitic elite class that is bleeding the working classes dry.

    France is emerging as ground zero for a rebellion against those elites. And the Establishment Empire is doing all it can to suppress the movement before it catches fire in other countries, as it is already threatening to elsewhere in Europe. How soon until we see folks don their own yelow vest in the US, UK, Canada and Australia?

    France Yellow Vests Protests: Act IX

    Violence between the State and the People is escalating

    This past Saturday (1/12/19) more Yellow Vest protests in France broke out.  The protests always happen on Saturday, and because this was the ninth one it's being called “Act IX.”

    More violence occurred, and the police are becoming more and more draconian and brutal in their responses.  Many injuries have happened among the protestors, a lot of them quite serious. Tempers are fraying all around.

    Danielle DiMartino Booth: Don’t Count On The Powell Fed To Rescue The Markets

    The new Fed Chair may break from his predecessors
    by Adam Taggart

    The recent gut-wrenching drop in asset prices began on the first day of the job for new Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell.

    How is Mr. Powell likely to react to a suddenly sick-looking market? Will he step in forcefully to reassure investors that there's a "Powell put" in place as a backstop?

    To address these questions, former analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Danielle DiMartino Booth, returns to the podcast this week. In her opinion, having studied Powell's previous statements, she thinks those expecting him to continue the market support his predecessors provided will likely be quite disappointed.

    Powell appears to be no large fan of continued quantitative easing, and has long been on the record as concerned about the eventual pain its unwind will cause. He very well may resist riding to the market's rescue at this time, allowing natural market forces to finally have their way:

    Grasshopper Nation: Planning For Those Who Aren’t Prepared

    Whom will you help? And how much will you be able to?

    Our resources are finite. Most of us don't feel we have all that we require to meet our own needs and goals. And the best-laid preparations of the most planful of us can suddenly become woefully insufficient if too many unexpected family, friends and neighbors show up demanding our charity.
