Is a basket of phony currencies somehow less phony than any of them by itself? An average drawn on the sum of any number of zeroes is still zero, isn’t it? I suppose a circle of drunks, each leaning inward, toward center, balanced momentarily against each oother’s shoulders, could be momentarily described as “self-supporting,” but I wouldn’t count on their immobility for long.

Societies, nations, collapse more slowly than small gatherings of inebriates, but collapse, they do, usually at rates which permit development of normalcy biases, making detection and positive ID subjects of contention, if not denial.

Cry, "Treason!"
