The 7 stages of collapse
« on: August 15, 2011, 01:19:53 pm »

Dmitry Orlov mapped the fall of the USSR and found that it applies to any and all.

The seven stages of collapse are:

Stage 1:  The Empire has ‘good money’ (backed by gold and/or silver) and wealth.
Stage 2:  Social programs develop.
Stage 3:  Massive military build up and warfare becomes commonplace. 
Stage 4:  Expenses increase so taxes go up.
Stage 5:  To pay for these expenses, the government begins to take the wealth of its people by stealth through either debasement of its currency and/or the creation of fiat currency.   What it can’t raise by taxes, it borrows.
Stage 6:  A loss of faith in government and currency occurs.
Stage 7:  An end mass-movement out of the fiat currency into precious metals, causing end of paper currency and inflation.

Stage 7.  A mass movement to remove the central government marked by open violence and martial law.

It's only happened several many dozens of times over history, that's why.
