Why Germany?

Six hours sleep and a bit of a residual wine buzz can have the strangest effect. I'm not sure what the dream was about, but I drifted awake thinking of social security ... and with the horrifying idea that George W Bush might not have been as big an idiot as he actually is.

Social Security, as I taught my University students, was invented, or first implemented, in Germany. The Kaiser used it to create,a tax everyone would willingly pay ... it wasn't really an old age thing ... in the 1800s, and, in fact, even prior to the current century, the average person did not live past 40.

In 1980, if you were born in world war two, you had already outlived half the people born in the year you were born. A person born in the first year of the baby-boom generation (1945) would have outlived half of the people born in the year they were born. Thus, setting retirement at 65 was a scheme to defraud those would would be dead before that age ... which was easily 75% of the population.

The Germans came up with that reality...
"GENESIS of GENESIS" Gosseck Circle and Stonehenge ... Germany and England; printing, Germany and China; Socialism, Germany and Russia; brains, German Jews ... how many German plus connections are there? Could there have been a Roman Catholic domination of Europe without the Holy Roman Emperors of Germany?

Social Security? The money goes to fund the federal deficit, not the elderly. Privatize it and it's value rises with inflation ... and is separate from the budget deficit ... the national Ponzi scheme comes to an end... and the nation falls flat on its face. But, after the global economic collapse, the world economy is,stronger and more ideal.

I think I'll go back to sleep... post apocalyptic reality is something to discuss in the evening, not on is hours of wine shared sleep.
