“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”
These are the words of Rahm Emanuel – the former mayor of Chicago and President Obama’s Chief of Staff.
Exploiting crises has long been the modus operandi and ethos of the many sociopaths that fill governments.
For example, the crisis of the Great Depression in the 1930s allowed the government to confiscate the gold of private citizens and implement The New Deal. These actions drastically increased the size and scope of the federal government far beyond its constitutional constraints.
