If we still used the measurement metrics employed in the 1960s, before government had the the need to condition perception by lying through it's teeth as it must desperately do now, unemployment sits at about 22%. (Inflation, too, is much higher than government would have you believe—ask any housewife that buys the groceries or pays the utilities, but I digress.) That's even with the extraordinary sums of money spent to give those removed from employment because the economic system is in it's death throes and it hasn't worked so well....just like it failed in the 30s.
The purpose of unemployment compensation, like so many lingering aspects of the Roosevelt engineered overthrow of the American Republic, is to stifle revolt; hungry people are keen for retribution. As the value of the money and the system continue to implode (and there's no other possible outcome), fancy how that, too, will work out in the longer run.
Is there really any value in deck chair rearrangement?
