Jonathan Swift prophesied, “When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in a confederacy against him.” The question is, Will the US turn into Britain circa 1961? Or are there enough cracks in the system that the dawn can break through? As Dirty Harry put it, “Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I’ve kinda lost track myself.”

Message from DeepCapture.com

At the time much of the content on DeepCapture.com was written, the Great Financial Crisis of 2008 was either on the verge of happening or had just occurred. In those days, emotions among this publication’s contributors were raw and, in an effort to get their warnings noticed and appropriate blame placed, occasionally hyperbolic language and shocking imagery were employed. Were we to write these entries today, a different tone would most certainly prevail.

Yet, being a record of a pivotal time in our global economic history, we’ve decided to leave the rawness unedited, with the proviso that readers take the context of the creation of certain posts into account, and that those easily offended re-consider the decision to read them.
