How can it be that we are so close to a catastrophic collapse, yet the mass of people remains oblivious? Pejoratives such as ‘stupid’ and ‘sheeple’ are not helpful because they provide no answers.
A more precise answer is that people are affected only by knowledge that they can either perceive or experience.
The accumulation of unpayable debt is the feature of the fiat system that is killing society. But that knowledge is beyond the perceptions of the vast majority of people. For many, the manifestations are also not yet part of their direct experience.
At some point, that will change and there will be a lot of wealth loss and anger. The anger will be directed at those who have deceived them with debt notes that masqueraded as money. They will not be the only target.
None of this is much help, but I do like to understand why things are the way they are.
