Show Notes/Topics And Links:

Introduction

Indivisible: With Justice for Some

  • The motivation for writing Indivisible: With Justice for Some
  • A story of several characters, including a morally tormented solider(the hero), a farther trying to protect his young daughter and a corrupt government bureaucrat
  • What happens when a country can no longer pay its debts and how this parallels current economic conditions in America – the problem when no sovereign country, financial institution, or individuals buy U.S. debt
  • The government steps in and starts to buy the debt(very similar to today’s Federal Reserve QE program)
  • How far will the U.S. government go to preserve the status quo and maintain control of the country?
  • Lack of, or absolutely no political will to take on the national debt and cut spending
  • The concept of an economic meltdown and how this collapse could potentially develop in modern-day America
  • Thoughts on basic preparedness – why keeping your eggs in different baskets works(diversification)
  • Signs to look for before a potential economic collapse ensues
  • Last ditch government efforts to bail out larger financial institutions – discussion on recent historic incidents in the US(TARP)
  • Why the Federal Reserve cannot stop the QE program and the economic collapses in the past that ultimately led to war
  • Societal collapse – the system shuts down and the infrastructure falls apart – capitalist entrepreneurial spirit tries to keep the system up and running, but the government steps in with emergency rules, price controls and makes the problem worse
  • The government will not be the answer and people will have to fend for themselves – with martial law, Constitutional rights could be disregarded, or completely lost

Upcoming Projects

Thoughts For Aspiring Writers And Creating Extra Income

  • The brick and mortar bookstore is going the way of the dinosaur
  • Large publishers no longer control the content
  • Ideas for self-publishing and marketing using social media
  • Hire an editor, or get several people who share common interest on the subject matter to proofread the work
