‘The sky is falling, the sky is falling!’ says Chicken Little, a commentary precursory to leading his friends into the fox den never to be seen again.
I am sure many of you are familiar with the story. Of course, there are two sides to this story:
The Story of Courage (not the point I’m making here) and
The Story of Gullibility – and, manipulation through viral marketing
And, of course, you may look at me funny for referencing a children’s story; but, the theory behind it rings in my ears again and again as I see more and more people falling for these internet ploys of ‘Financial Armageddon’.
Foxey Loxey (and, many of the supposed “Internet Gurus” these days) states, “Why should I just get one, when I can get them all! Quote, ‘to influence the masses, aim first at the least intelligent’, end quote.” And, later, “quote, ‘if you tell a lie, don’t tell a little one, tell a big one’, end quote.”
Now, while you may or may not want to be Cockey Lockey, Ducky Lucky, Goosey Poosey, Henny Penny, or Turkey Lurkey, I think it’s certainly safe to assume you don’t want to be the least intelligent. And, I would certainly hope your first instinct isn’t to ‘Run to the cave’ whenever you hear a Doom and Gloom commentator telling YOU the sky is falling.
As the story suggests, the only one who survives – and, heartily stuffs his belly (and his wallet) – is the Chicken Little theorist telling you that the only way to survive a major financial crisis (think: End Of The World) is to buy his trading system or investment service… I mean, seriously!
(NOTE: The concept of what to have in the case of financial crises is discussed via another article on ourM4 support forum, entitled: The Gold Bug: Your Personal Vaccination Starts Here… )
But, back to Chicken Little… have a look at this article, written by our very own Barry Goss:
