There are very few positive things about any crisis. One of them is the usual weeding out of bad investments, which (if the government allows) leads to better allocation of resources. That takes time and it is usually painful so it is hard to use this as justification for the short term mess.
But economics to the side, a short term benefit of this crisis is that crypto pinkos, those who disguise themselves as “skeptics”, “socially responsible” or something like that, just can’t control themselves and end up coming out, bursting in happiness that “the system is coming to an end”.
After all, the most dangerous pinko is the one who tries to convince you he is not one.
Another benefit of identifying who is who is that when things go back to normal you can see that all the b.s. arguments they use are just that: smoke screens for their real intentions.
I mean, do you remember that far far away year of 2007 when investment banks were making huge profits? As far as I can remember, pinkos were not happy then… And how about the real far past, say 2002, when Real Estate was booming and people were making lots of money in investments. Do you remember hearing about all the great benefits of the capitalist system? Of course not. We only heard about how difficult it was for young couples to buy new houses, how suburbs were killing the planet, etc.
Same goes for unemployment, GDP growth, and any other economic indicator you can imagine. When things go well all the talk about “the system” just magically disappears.
Please note that I am only talking about the people who are actually happy now. Of course there is valid criticism to go around and things can always be improved. People might differ on how they see these improvements happening, and that is fine.
But Pinkos want to see the town burning. They don’t want improvement, they want destruction. You might hear nicer words like “the need for a new type of capitalism” but don’t be fooled: what these people really want is good old socialism, the same stuff that their bearded heroes preached and killed millions for during the 20th century.
But again, at least now is a good time to see who these people really are.
