Why is this at all surprising?
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.

Have Americans ever read a history book before?

Americans think that the airports, parks, schools, and courthouses were already built when the European settlers arrived in North America, but what if the towns were built by the settlers and then the government was set up?

Americans seem to think gulags, killing fields, and concentration camps never existed.

Do you think your grandpa would be lying if he looked you in the eye and said his friend was killed during WWII?

Do you honestly think that the Great Depression and WWII never happened?

Americans prance around thinking that they live in a free and peaceful country with a balanced budget, but what if Americans were wrong?

What if the USA was really a bankrupt warmongering police state?

Do you see any similarities at all between the 1929 stock market crash, the Great Depression, the trade war, and WWII and the 2008 stock market crash, the recession, the trade war, and a possible WWIII?

You don't see any warning signs?

Do think tyranny is some kind of joke?

Do you tyranny is a fun little game?

Do you think the US Ponzi economy will never collapse?

What will you do when inflation is 1 million percent?

What will you think when you see the Gestapo line protesters against a wall and shoot them?

What will you do when you see a starving guy with a butter knife stab someone to steal a can of corn?

Will you wish that you had said something when you are sitting in a concentration camp?

Do you think that you will be able to opt-out when the US starts WWIII with North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China and the nuclear bombs explode around you?

Aren't you just a little concerned?

The smartphone is today's fiddle. Some of you at least should get the connection.

It is a reference to the dark scenarios listed above and the legend of Nero fiddling while Rome burned. We may similarly be buried in our smartphones while the world around us burns if any of these traits have merit, and most likely some of them do.

Americans scream inflation is good, but the US did just fine with almost no inflation from 1776 to 1913.

The USA has a huge amount of debt, but inflation is low today because of technology and no one has any money.

Americans will soon regret wishing for inflation when US debt grows, trade wars push up prices, illegal immigrants are kicked out, minimum wage decrees increase prices, and US wars and sanctions drive up costs.
