Deconstructing the “savings glut”

There is an old technique in mind control and psyops that involves accusing your enemy of exactly the sins you yourself are committing.  With its subtle invocation of gluttony, the accusation that the Chinese have created a “savings glut” to somehow take advantage of us poor innocent virtuously consuming Americans is a perfect example of this gambit, which I like to call perfectly symmetrical hypocrisy.

The gluttony was ours.  To accuse a nation as historically thrifty and hardworking as the Chinese of a “savings glut” is obscene.  It should stop.
