Learn to talk about economics. We are at a moment in history when this is the most fascinating subject.
Quick fact – the government gave the top 5 banks 64 billion in bailout money. The profits of these banks? 64 billion, of which they gave out 28 billion in bonuses. So the bankers are huge huge welfare queens. They stole 28 billion in bailout money by holding the economy for ransom.
By the way, I urge you to talk to Jewish people, especially ones active in business, because they are the important people to talk to! They are the people doing the things we don’t like. Doesn’t it make sense to get to know them and talk to them?
Denise acts as though I’m going to become all buddy buddy, that it’s a binary between bosom buddies or pure hate. It might honestly be a woman’s perspective — that if you have friendly relations with someone, you are at risk of becoming a sympathizer or trusting them too much.
Men can have relationships with people that are all business, so to speak. We don’t lead with our hearts or our emotions, we lead with our brain, our rationality.
We can have a meeting of the minds with people, without a meeting of the hearts. Perhaps women are less able to do this. Spies and infiltrators can pretend to have a meeting of the hearts quite credibly, but at the same time get their mission accomplished and don’t betray their original cause.
Whom do we need to study? Pacific Islanders? Guatemalans? No! We need to study Jews and Chinese as Cultural Anthropologists so we can codify what they do that is effective and transmit it to our Folk.
You must not give any hint of hostility to your subject, and it wouldn’t be bad if you played the “I’m a Jew myself” game.
Matt Taibbi approaches it from the Left, but in this video he is basically saying that Jewish bankers are above the law and they are just stealing. He is using Jon Stewart (Leibowitz) as a vector, since he’s coming from the Left. Taibbi is an example of a Cultural Anthropologist studying and writing about Jewish banking.
Instead of approaching from the Left necessarily, approach from the “I’m your friend/acquaintance/fellow Jew,” and don’t act angry.
Yes. And really do it, use the Stanislavsky Method so you imagine yourself in this character and you have a real fear reaction.
Why are “you” afraid? Because the people in charge of banking have broken this public utility, this public commons, and this is going to lead to a huge shake up. Don’t mention Jews unless your subject does first, but if he or she does, tell how afraid you are of anti-semitism as a result of the coming financial crash, and it’s going to be the fault of those bankers crashing the economy.
Plant that meme — the bankers are destroying the public utility of the economy. Rinse, repeat.
Peter Schiff is like a Howard Cosell of the financial world — he does play by play, so you understand what is happening NOW, what is interesting now, in the banking world. You listen to Schiff, you can talk about what’s happening in economics like you talked about the game last night.
THe people you talk to will realize you know more than them about what’s actually happening. They don’t follow the statements of Federal Reserve people like Janet Yellen.
What you want to project is that the people in charge don’t know waht they are doing, and they are sinking the ship. Schiff gives you the information to make that case:
The solution — banking as a boring old public utility. This, however, would reduce Jewish power. Peak Chutzpah isn’t going to voluntarily cut itself, so there will not be reform, there will be revolution.
The crash is coming, and when it does, it will be the beginning of the right side of the bell curve of Peak Chutzpah.
