Your sequestered brain canâ€™t see next crash coming…This time is never different, but we remain blind

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) â€” Warning: Forget the cuts, your brain is sequestered. Thatâ€™s the real problem: Your brain. Thatâ€™s why the economy and markets will crash, a new Dow high notwithstanding. Why itâ€™s inevitable. Bigger crash than 2008. Longer afterwards. No bank bailouts. Austerity worse than the Great Depression. Hunker down.
Listen closely: Americaâ€™s big problem is our â€śsequesteredâ€ť brains. Meaning: â€śto remove, isolate, set apart, retire, withdraw into solitude.â€ť Think post-trauma stress, paralysis, amnesia, lobotomized, entranced, just plain irrational. Youâ€™re out of it, incapable of acting rational.
And not just you: Economists, politicians and media pundits all have sequestered brains. They blab on endlessly about this or that of their special interests hiding among the trillion-dollar war-and-peace sequester cuts. Blab on and on. Myopic.
Why? Their brains are sequestered too. Millions of noisy brains. But you canâ€™t hear them, no matter what. Your brain is on a different frequency. Only hears your set channels. That happens to your sequestered brain.
In fact, our collective brain, Americaâ€™s conscience, our psyche, mind-set, even our soul is sequestered. America lapsed into a trance, confused. Our entire nationâ€™s rational brain has been sequestered, collectively â€śremoved, set apart, isolated, retiring, withdrawn.â€ť
