TIME THEORY OF MONEY
Posing the only real threat to (today's) happy scene are the politicians. In their grim global rebellion against the truth of time. They don scarecrow costumes of false disasters such as climate change, trade gap trumpery, debt doom or middle-class woe.
They scowl and leer and demand more power. They rant and vamp like vandalistic clowns of an apocalypse that will never come unless they summon it with their own lunatic fits and furies.
