I guess the best way to get everyone to want to keep around a failing government run Ponzi scheme, is to make any other kind of investment vehicle unattractive. Qeueue the idea that 401Ks should be taxed pre use. Not to mention that once government can raid them through taxes, they also find ways to justify doing what Europeans are talking about or doing to their private investment retirement vehicles – nationalizing these investment vehicles so the government can raid the big cash in them – with a lot more ease.
Just like with healthcare, if you make the system too top heavy, expensive, and unviable, you can get rid of it and have government run it all. It really isn’t a coincidence that they are going after these things. Between healthcare and private retirement vehicles, the government could grab control of trillions of new dollars. And after all, the plan is to control people through their access to this stuff. It is not a coincidence that they are also going after control of what you eat, either.
This is not accidental. And to make sure we all stay well behaved,
