The Normalcy BiasFreud

The normalcy bias is a psychological term that basically means a state of denial someone goes into to handle a traumatic situation. A great majority of the American public suffer from this condition. They are in denial of the fact that the United States is decaying economically, and losing its rights. As written in Wikipedia,”People with a normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation.”

The Normalcy Bias Economically

The dollar is collapsing. It only has value because the rest of the world uses it for transactions. Every time the government tells the private Federal Reserve to create money out of thin air, like a counterfeiting operation, it decrease the dollars value. Other countries are getting sick and tired of holding the bag. Once these other countries finish positioning themselves to move to another currency, they’re going to ditch the dollar, and then it’s value will decrease to nothing. If you have $100k in the bank it will suddenly be worth a fraction once this plays out. When trying to warn people to prepare for this eventuality, they’re not alarmed, or concerned. They act like you didn’t say anything. Why? The normalcy bias.

The Normalcy Bias and Loss of Liberty

We are a country that has given up liberty for safety, and it is leading to complete loss of our rights. We can no longer own property outright, we rent it through the town, city, county, etc. We pay rent to keep from being evicted, and call that property tax. The government illegally takes over half of income in one form or another. This is theft regardless of whether the group of people are the government or not. A group of people are a group of people under the concept of natural rights, or rights that come from God. It doesn’t matter who these group of people are. Nothing in the Constitution puts the government above everyone else. In fact, it is supposed to be subservient to all of us. We can’t even travel without being harassed, searched molested at checkpoints at the airports, and this is beginning to happen more and more on highways, and other modes of travel. When trying to warn people to contact their elected representatives and say no, they’re not alarmed, or concerned. They act like you didn’t say anything. Why? The normalcy bias. Here is a great video clip where this psychological condition is mentioned.
