When individuals come to power on the back of the image of moral purity and and scientific certainty, they must protect the lie that such claims always are by finding reasons for the inevitable failures that come with any attempt to centrally control outcomes of human interaction over any significant span of time.
The more centrally controlled your system, the more prone to catastrophic failure it is, leading to apocolyptic boogeymen needing to be created to serve as the foil of anger and fear that comes at such times. As the Coronavirus has taken its course, the lies of the party of supreme morality and scientific certainty are being exposed every day, breaking more and more Americans away from the central signal that must increasingly create more and more fictions to hide all the lies of the promises and claims of superiority their party used to come to power in the first place.
As the natural outcome of their insane plan to print away the pains of Corona comes to light, inflation, the ones behind the strategy, the faces of the party of the morally supreme and scientifically certain are now going to blame the rise of a new variant for the reason that probably, maybe (oh most surely, you can count on it), inflation might be here to stay for a while.
The Federal Reserve Chair, Jerome Powell, the Printer King himself, is preparing to tell lawmakers that the Omnicron is to blame for the pain to come, not us, promise, pinky swear. Look at us, we’re the good guys, the party of the morally supreme and scientific certain, the party that mourned the death of JoJo, the prince of the DNC himself, gone too soon, that party.
The Omnicron is an inflation creator and perpetuator, which means, by extension, it won’t be long before the Federal Reserve and the Joe himself (if Soda Pop will let him leave their game of dominoes over a glass of lemonade) is not declaring the unvaccinated are to blame for inflation. They probably sabotage our businesses too. And stuff.
Laugh now friends, but we’re already at that point. The good news is this, technology is not on the side of the central planners anymore.
Jerome H. Powell, the Federal Reserve chair, will tell lawmakers on Tuesday that inflation is likely to last well into next year and that the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus creates more uncertainty around the economic outlook, according to a copy of his prepared remarks.
The remarks by Mr. Powell, who will testify before the Senate Banking Committee alongside Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, convey a sense of wariness at a time when price increases are running at their fastest pace in three decades.
“It is difficult to predict the persistence and effects of supply constraints, but it now appears that factors pushing inflation upward will linger well into next year,” Mr. Powell plans to say. “In addition, with the rapid improvement in the labor market, slack is diminishing, and wages are rising at a brisk pace.”
