We are in the early stages of a Civil War brought on by the economic collapse of the entitlement state. The Occupy Wall Street movement is just the tip of the iceberg of what is coming. "Surviving Civil War II " covers how to survive the civil war you already know is in progress, providing the historical, economic, political and social background. This modern civil war, which will look nothing like our first Civil War.
The first great American Civil War was about ending slavery. Civil War II is about the same thing, except the slave owners in this case are the bureaucrat and entitlement classes who have yoked productive citizens and future generations to a grindstone of $100 trillion of unfunded social liabilities, environmental Gaia worship and bureaucratic strangulation.
We cannot get out of this financial and regulatory black hole unless one of two things happens:
•A) The productive class resigns itself to being tethered to a permanent millstone of egregious taxation in support of the consumption class of bureaucrats and entitled, or
•B) There is a Civil War and revolt of the productive class, essentially an economic default on the obligation to support the non-productive classes, which realigns the entire system.
That which cannot be, cannot be. There is no way to overcome the size of future entitlements except through default by the productive classes on the state's overextended promises.
This is a companion book to "Going Galt: Surviving Economic Armageddon" which is more of a practical survival manual. Both books are available on Amazon.com by looking up Daxton Brown, or by following the next links:
