The Republic of Weimar Germany had many things in common with the USA today.
The Weimar Republic of Germany had groups of Communists violently clashing with groups of Nationalists in the streets. In fact, Antifa was founded at this time.
The Republic of Weimar Germany had rigged elections.
The Republic of Weimar Germany had hyperinfaltionary money printing.
The Republic of the United States of America is showing all the symptoms of Weimar Germany. Arguably the most worrying, though all the symptoms are terrifying, is that money supply is on a surge. Several charts tell the story.
As one American commenter put it:
“Uncle Sam could send me $10k in cash to spend how I want but there is nothing to spend it on. Yeah I can buy a new tv but I already have 5 and there are only 2 people in my house. Travel? Where to?
Buy clothes? What for, nowhere to go.
Food? I can only eat so much.
Buy a new car? What for, i work from home now and nowhere to go.
I could go on but you get the idea. Paying down debt is what people have been doing.”
