Unfortunately, as history shows, the sheeple can accept 20% and even 95% cuts to their wealth without much protest, and will, also, blame the wrong actors for these losses...The majority will only start growling when they get hit in their wallets
I am still hoping for 20 percent cuts on pensions, allowances and public servant paychecks
They'll probably just hide the loss of wealth through inflation. People are too dumb too understand. Likewise the average boomer still fails to comprehend that the price of housing vs. real income has increased by about 400 percent since 1980
20% haircut just happened - that's about how much dollar purchasing power in the States had devalued in 2020, that's how much their savings, salaries, pensions, social security payments, treasury paper investments had just devalued, but yes they are too dumb to understand that.
As to boomers....for some reason every time I'm in the grocery store it's full of obvious retirees and very old ones, in surgical masks of course - if they're so afraid of "deadly virus" why are they not using curbside pickup/online orders and why are telling others to wear masks instead... Some of them even go "shopping" having to ride carts because they're too sickly or fat to walk in the store, while they have their adult children who shop along with them -- all masked, of course...and I'm supposed to wear a mask which prevents me from breathing to "protect" those??
I do not have good expectations about resistance (here at least, in the US)...every grocery store is full of poison, 99% of foods sold here are harmful to health/fake/processed/full of glyphosate, pesticides, additives, fake flavors, transfats/toxic fats such as canola, bad sugars, etc. I don't even mention poisonous chemical crap in detergents, "air fresheners", human-sterilizing personal use chemicals, etc they brainwashed everyone to buy. All these fat zombies that stuff their pie holes with this feed (that makes them dependent on Big Pharma already) can't possibly be showing real resistance to being injected with poison. The injection of poison into their bodies is just a next logical step that was bound to happen.
The only reason we're not seeing actual lock-up camps like Gulag is elites had figured out that it's much more efficient to lock people up in their homes, no need for camp-building expenses, and electronic surveillance replaces iron-jawed guards at the gate and barbwire. There would be no real resistance if Gulags were built, but most are already living in Gulag without realizing it.
