My wife forwarded this (A Terrifying Vision of the End Game) to me last week.  It has gone viral after all (which is the only reason a finance-o-phobe like my wife – and like most normal people outside of geeks like you and me – would have seen it).  It comes courtesy of Business Insider, which saw fit to pump the bear case at the exact moment that fear could not get any more palpable in US and global stocks markets.

Now Zero Hedge is apparently still hung up on it.  I generally like ZH and marvel at the shear volume of information that these guys churn out; but come on guys, enough already.  Raoul Paul (a hedge fund manager no less; oooohhhhh) thinks the system is going to end and a new one will rise from its ashes.  Wow, ya think?
