I'm 15 seconds into this video, and I'm already hooked. Here's why
1) He gets right in. No "click the bell subscribe blah blah." He doesn't waste our time. He doesn't even introduce himself. He figures (correctly) that if we like how he teaches, we'll take the time to figure out who he is:
2) He uses no overt political jargon that gives away his political bent. He clearly wants to teach, not indoctrinate. He delves right into his topic and doesn't do some useless "in this video, I'll cover. . " Yes, well, if we like the video, we'll find out what he covers, won't we? So he simply starts teaching. This is the hallmark of a confident teacher who actually has something to say.
3) His backdrop. It is interesting enough to be engaging, but not distracting. He uses the Art-Deco theme of the era he's covering (as well as his clothing) to demonstrate that he knows a little bit about what he's talking about.
4) He's speaking diction and speed are spot-on: Not too fast so we can't follow, but not so slow that we start looking at our watches.

OK, so, really, I have no idea if I agree with his points, or his outlook, but if he was a prof. at college, I'd fight to be able to petition his classes.

"Gold plated age" and "Slaves to the stock market" are two unfortunate phrases that may once again demonstrate history repeating itself.

Feels like today we are living in pre great depression Weimar Republic, with a massive meltdown approaching.

It's utterly terrifying how close this is to the situation we are in now. History doesn't repeat, but it sure as hell does rhyme.

Similar to what is happening now: Rural-Urban divide, low and middle class struggling while large corporations boom.

A broke weimar from reparations didn't produce the nazis. Not in the 1920s. It did, however, with the great depression in the 1930s.

People made slaves by loans, while the elite bathes in luxury: doesn't sound familiar at all... This goes for the entire EU at the moment and the US won't be that different.

Humanity: making the same mistakes over and over again. While the elite just keeps on being the elite: despite war, poverty, hunger, bankrupcy, etc. The Untouchables.

I remember well, a conversation with a man in the late 1970', from Bavaria, who as a child was poor and starving. He was willing to overlook many of Hitler's atrocities, because he still considered him a savior from starvation.

That explanation of Germans borrowing US loans to pay off reparations to the Entente which then were used to pay off war debt to the US sounds like the Japanese economic bubble of the '80s. All we need are banks to be in bed with corporations and buying stock at a loss and it'd be the same.

The experience of hyperinflation would encourage consumerism. If your cash savings could be wiped out by the actions of the government, that provides incentive to turn it into goods which might still have value if the currency loses its value again and at very least, you can use in the meantime. That also encourages taking on debt, as a currency collapse effectively wipes out your debt.

Unfortunately, the coming collapse will be deflationary, which has the opposite effects.

Germans loaned US money to pay the Entente who used it to repay their loans to the US. Sounds like the only one profiting from this cycle is the US.
