The austerity narrative goes back to the great depression and the greatest generation. Calvinism, Christianity. Boot straps. Scarcity. Clean your plate. Carried ice 50 flights of stairs...1/x
Ultimately decoupling the moralizations of the military & "fiscal discipline" from our ability to save lives is something that MUST be accomplished to move forward. We must separate the "should's" from the "yes we absolutely can w/o hesitations"
This is PRECISELY why decoupling taxes from spending is the tip of the spear.This is precisely why my focus of the last 3yrs has been to decouple the concept of spending & taxation being dependent on each other & why so many slammed me over the yrs whilst many were just hating me
Now... folks are waking and these conversations are happening in broad daylight.

What a nice change.

It was tough doing it when everyone thought I was crazy.
Hell, some benefited from my struggle and have looked back and judged that journey without having actually been there when it was a jungle of hate for activists.

Bravo to the pioneers and carry on new comers. We have a lot of work to do.
