After the Crash: Disintegration

Written by Gary North on January 6, 2012

What would life be like after a major crash?

What would happen if Washington’s checks started bouncing?

Here are some possibilities. The author went through this in Argentina. This is a worst-case scenario. It is why we need to be in positions of authority locally before the crash.

  • Expect Corruption: Maybe in their minds, it’s not even corruption. The high ranking politicians simply do extra-legal “favors” for one another, and perhaps they even believe their own BS speech, that they are doing them for “the greater good.” Or perhaps not. Perhaps they are just greedy, lying crooks from the very start.
  • Expect Loss of Freedom: Particularly the loss of gun rights. Americans should keep a close watch, and consider gun rights to be the “freedom barometer.” There will be direct attacks on the right to keep and bear arms. Reinterpretation of the Second Amendment. Indirect attempts such as taxing ammunition and firearms out of the reach of the average citizen. A greater number of legal requirements to own firearms. Some people believe that armed citizens don’t stand a chance against a national military force, especially one as powerful as the United States Army. This is the bullshit lie all governments around the world want you to believe, but the reality is very different.
  • Expect Censorship: We’ve experienced a growing amount of censorship in many forms. Calls from the Presidential Office directly intimidate reporters and news directors. There are threats of legal action and tax persecution to anyone that dares question the government… Phone tapping and email reading are widespread as well.
  • Expect an Inefficient Legal System: With growing crime, fewer resources, and possibly significant amounts of corruption getting in the way, the legal system will become slow, inefficient, and in some cases it may not work at all. For example, in Argentina legal resolutions not only take years, these days you can’ even expect justice at all. For some reason I’m not entirely certain of, even murderers and serial rapists are not being incarcerated. A disturbing number of them are being sent right from court to “home imprisonment.” I suppose it’s mostly due to prisons already containing over three times their maximum population capacity, and there being few resources to build more prison space.
  • Expect Failing Public Institutions: Hospitals, schools, and public transportation companies that receive government tax subsidies have all collapsed and are in awful condition where they do still function.
  • Expect Crumbling Infrastructure: The roads, bridges, and public infrastructure will get worse as time goes by.
  • Expect a Cultural Change (for the worse): I’ve seen bookstores, coffee shops and theaters closing, to be replaced by casinos, pastoral churches that are as bad as casinos (they steal people’s money promising salvation), bingo halls, drugstores where they mostly sell booze, porno shops, and internet booths, gloomy stores where people that mostly look like perverts get online.
  • Expect More Extreme Poverty and Shanty Towns: No big secret here either. It happened in the USA during the Great Depression and it happened here in Argentina after 2001 as well. Even now, the “villas” (shanty towns and tent or cardboard shack cities) are growing like a fungus all around Buenos Aires. People also take over abandoned factories and hundreds of families live there. Usually a local thug takes over and rents or sells the space.
  • Expect a Smaller Police Force: And expect police to concentrate mostly on the capital and major cities, in the downtown business areas and the nicer looking more affluent neighborhoods, usually in that order of preference. The government behaves very much like a cellular organism. When resources are scarce, the police mostly concentrate in the center, capital cities and places where high ranking officials live, leaving the suburbs and smaller towns to fend for themselves.
  • Expect “Commando” Criminals: This is how we refer to criminals that have certain “professional” backgrounds. Usually they are ex-cops (or even active duty cops) or ex-military. They are well armed, well organized, know how to use modern communications and they do intelligence work before a “mission.” These are dangerous people and have the skills to do serious bank robberies, kidnap rich people in spite of their security guards, or assault guarded gated neighborhoods.
  • Expect Even More Corruption: One thing we know about in Argentina is corruption. It’s everywhere and it has kind of become almost a national sport. What we learned is that you can’t expect honest government employees, when the leaders themselves are making very questionable decisions. This grows like a cancer in a democracy and eventually it’s impossible to eradicate it.

    Unfortunately the use of the word "expect" may be a little short sided. All you've stated is already going on here in the US. Maybe one exception on the smaller police force. That will be transitioned into a much larger police ENforce. Citizen Army comes to mind.

  2. Looks to me this is already taking place….so why "look" for such events? We are censored from saying negative things about muslims and islamic trash; there is rampant corruption in congress and the white house; there are already criminal commandos (notice the raid on the Social Security Office?); illegals are granted rights as guaranteed by the US Constitution while the true citizens are denied those rights; some judges are ruling via shar'ia rather than US laws–which, by the way, is expressly forbidden by the US Constitution; our infrastruture is already in a failed state with no funds being allocated to repair these items; our police force is already in a state of few officers and no means to hire more; our economy is sinking as rapidly as the titanic; and on it goes—-so, the author, in my opinion, is a bit late with his warning; he should have written this like 8 years ago!!

  3. The citizen army, as promised by obama, is already in progress. There were some clips on you tube that showed older teens 'training' for the job–not a pretty sight, believe me.

  5. Until You Understand Your United States Citizenship, You're Spinning Your wheels! Don't bother trying to claim Constitutional protection. You're Wasting Your Time.
    [This article is for the education, and edification, of Citizens of the states of the United States of America to learn more about the nature and character of their citizenship. Understanding the nature and character of your citizenship is necessary for an understanding of the Federal government.]
    In law, the three most important things are definitions, definitions, definitions. What is the definition of the “United States”? Here's what the US Supreme court says.
    “The term 'United States' may be used in any of several senses.(1) It may be merely the name of a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in the family of nations.(2) It may designate the territory over which the sovereignty of the United States (G) extends, or (3) it may be the collective name of the states which are united under the Constitution.' [parenthetical designations are added]
    [Hooven & Allison Co. v. Evatt, 324 U.S. 652(1945)]
    From the above Supreme Court ruling, one can see the term 'United States has several meanings, which have been designated (1), (2), (3), and (G). The term 'United States can mean (1) the Nation, (2) the Federal territories over which the Federal Government's sovereignty extends, and (3) the 50 Union states united by the Constitution. The term 'United States' can also mean (G), the Federal government itself.
    United States 1- The United States of America- the Nation (political sense)
    United States 2- Washington D.C., the Federal Territories and possessions- (geographical sense)
    United States 3- The 50 Union states- (geographical sense)
    United States G- The Federal Government- (corporate sense)” 1

    [These designations will be used throughout this article]
    Are you a citizen of (1), (2), (3), or all three?
    Understand this. The United States (2) does not include the 50 states. It only includes Washington D.C., the Territories, the possessions such as Guam, and the Virgin Islands, and Federal enclaves within the bounds of any state of the Union. Those enclaves must be land ceded to the Federal government by that states' legislature. The United States (G) has no sovereignty, jurisdiction, nor authority, within the bounds of any state, except on lands that are ceded to it. The Federal government must have permission from the proper state authority to act within the state, except on those lands ceded. That's why local authorities must ask for the help of the FBI. The FBI cannot just barge in on a local case. That's why it's the duty of a local county sheriff to stop any Federal agents from committing unwarranted arrests, search and/or seizure within their county.
    The citizens of United States (1)and (3) are entitled to all of the protections by the Constitution of the United States of America. That Constitution contains the list of the things that the Federal government is required, and permitted, to do when dealing with a state of the Union, for a state or states of the Union, and when dealing with a citizen of a state of the Union.
    The citizen of United States (2) has no Constitutional protections, as do the citizens of United States (1)and (3). Look at the following Supreme Court Decisions.
    "In exercising its constitutional power to make all needful regulations respecting territory belonging to the United States, Congress [under Art. I, §8, Cl. 17 and Article IV §3, Cl. 2. of the Constitution] is not subject to the same constitutional limitations as when it is legislating for the United States [the 50 states]. " Hooven v. Evatt, 324 U.S. 674.
    "Two national governments exist; one to be maintained under the Constitution, with all its restrictions; the other to be maintained by Congress outside and Independently of that Instrument.”
    also from the same case,
    "Constitutional restrictions and limitations were NOT applicable to the areas of lands, enclaves, territories and possessions over which Congress had exclusive legislative authority." Downes v. Bidwell, 182 U.S. 244. (emphasis added)
    It's common knowledge that Washington D.C., and the possessions have representatives in Congress. Though those representatives have no vote. The people in D.C., and the possessions are United States (2) citizens. Congress has the right to legislate anything it wants to for those places, without regard for the Constitution. Consequently, those people have no Constitution to protect them.

    This was too long for one comment section. It is continued in my next comment sectionsection

  6. continued from above

    Are you a citizen of United States (1), (2), (3), or all three?
    When someone fills out an application SS-5 for a Social Security number, it asks on line 5,
    "CITIZENSHIP (Check One), U S Citizen, Legal Alien Allowed To Work, Legal Alien Not Allowed To Work(See Instructions On Page 3), Other (See Instructions On Page 3)."
    Which United States is this? Does any applicant know what they were declaring? Look on the same application form on Line 17.
    "I declare under penalty of perjury that I have examined all the information on this form, and on any accompanying statements or forms, and it is true to the best of my knowledge."
    Forms are legally binding. Just tell a lie on a form and see what happens. You'll be prosecuted.
    Could an applicant have declared that they are a United States Citizen? A Citizen of United States (2)?
    The people at the Social Security Administration believe that surely this applicant wouldn't lie under oath. If the applicant declared themself a US(2) citizen, then they will be treated as one. Without knowing it, all Social Security card holders have made themselves a citizen of US (2).
    The Social Security form isn't the only government form that has this effect. Most forms from the United States (G) carry the same query.
    If you declared yourself to be a United States (2) Citizen then you are subject to the sovereignty of the US (G). The Constitution says so.

    “The Congress has the Power…To exercise exclusive Legislation in ALL Cases whatsoever, over such District…" Article 1 sec. 8 ¶ 1 & ¶ 17, and Article 4 sec. 3 ¶ 2, Constitution of the United States of America. (That's the District of Columbia)

    All of the legislation that congress has passed applies to you, even if you think it's not Constitutional. It's all perfectly legal.

    This article only presents the main point. You should go to the links below and fill in the details. Warning ! Do Not attempt to do what you may read in any article until
    you prove it is true. Even those, who have proved to themselves that these
    things are true, have made the mistake of trying to do something alone.
    Some people have tried something about the situation without full knowledge.
    Some have gone to jail.
    This information is gathered from many sources. In some cases text is also supplied herein. Some constructions are made, and some conclusions are drawn by the authors of these various sources. All writing, even the Bible, is someone's opinion. It's just that some sources of opinion are better than others. Nothing found within these writings is to be construed as advice of any sort, legal, personal, or otherwise. What you do with this information is up to you. Don't believe blindly. But, “Go to the source, and get the facts”. The Bible wisely advises, "Prove all things. Hold fast that which is good."
    If you have declared yourself to be a United states Citizen (2), then you have no Constiututional protection. So stop trying to claim your Constitutional protections. You don't have any until you correct your citizenship situation. Only United States Citizens of United States (1) and (3) have Constitutional protections.
