The martial law of this era will be a bit more of the "boot in your face" type. As for calling the incident in the 30s the "great contraction", it is accurate. The Money Men created the depression by severely contracting the money supply, after having extended credit beyond reason. They will do the same now, although the expansion of credit has been immeasurably more insane. The effects will also be immeasurably more painful. God speed in the days ahead.
