the devil's proverbs

There is no freedom without peace; war is history's great enslaver.

The industrial age has freed humans from the burden of unrelenting drudgery, but has birthed just as much destructiveness as creativity: wars, bombs, planes, factories, cars, suburbs, strip malls, tons. You are all gmo.

Cheap gasoline is the devil's nectar.

Beige, crowded-together suburban subdivisions are the devil's feces.

Clean food is got without a trap or gun.

A deflating currency means each piece of money is worth more, so savers win and debtors lose. Inflation has exactly the opposite effect.

Even if you live in a fantasy, and don't want to deal with reality, you can be sure reality will deal with you.

Incessant warfare is our gift from the angels of capitalism.

Indeed, and what a barbaric, brutal enslaver war is.

I haven't considered rising house prices desirable.

Joe, I don't expect house prices to rise very much. To stay up to date, see the Calculated Risk blog (calculatedriskblog.com).

They'll have the Case-Schiller report on July activity on Tuesday, and current price report on Wednesday.

Thanks Dave for that heads-up about house prices. A lot of people have long been absorbed by the notion of their house price rising.
