Ross Cairn: I Think That...
Financial Revolution is the Only Way...and it's So Simple
Tue, 28 Oct 2008
The truth of it all is that we can revolt against The System, and we don't have to lay on the line our lives or the lives of others to do it.
The near-total meltdown of our financial system is proof that we can effect change through financial revolution.
Allow me to explain. It's quite simple:
I've long advocated the Just-Don't-Pay Strategy.
Simply put: Go and take out as many credit cards, loans, lines of credit, etc. as you can; max them all out, and then don't pay.
In a sense, people have done just that and that's how the inherently precarioius nature of our financial system has finally been exposed.
People were being tricked into loans and mortgages that were beyond their means.
What I suggest is that, instead of being tricked into it, they should take the lead and get themselves into these ridiculous agreements voluntarily.
I'm advocating is that people do that shit on purpose in order to bring the system down from the inside.
Bloodless and painless. Materialism eating itself up from the inside. It's actually quite beautiful in its simplicity.
Will it ruin people's credit? Fuck yes it will. Do we care? Fuck no we don't. Why not? Because what we've discovered, as a result of the financial meltdown, is that the system needs us to function.
It needs us to buy shit ... all the fucking time. If we disappear as consumers (AKA People With Good Credit Scores), then the system ends up in the shit heap too.
Therefore, the system will always have to let us back in. And we commence to start the just-don't-pay cycle all over again.
Eventually, the system will deteriorate to the point where nothing can be sold and nothing can be bought.
Boom. Mission accomplished. The System crashes and disappears, but in the process, I got me a house, a boat, an RV, a 3-week vacation in the Bahamas, a Corvette and every other material possession I could put on the MasterCard or Visa.
