After centuries of debate by economists, the root cause of inflation has been found by the high quality journalists at the Atlantic. Annie Lowrey has found that the cause of inflation is the consumer and that everyone should feel the great guilt over all the purchases they have made in the last 3 years which has lead to a sharp increase in prices. In fact, consumers should likely consider not buying anything in the near future to allow prices to go down.
Lowery goes on to say in the article, "Your digital opiate machine for watching sportsball games sponsored by Pfizer has dropped more than 90% since 1990, but the cost for you to not be homeless or feed your family has made you poor. Don't think about the getting poor part though." This clearly shows that inflation is not as bad as people think it is because your television is cheaper today than it was 33 years ago.
The lesson from the article is that consumers should be filled with self loathing and should never question basic economic fundamentals like whether printing endless amounts of money is inflationary. Journalists hate the average person, and that's why it's important for the average person to read Lowery's work in order to understand that they should hate themselves as much as Lowery hates them. It is vital to having a stable society that the ruled class give the ruling class the benefit of the doubt, and refuse to question their actions. The plebs should take a lesson from journalists who know that the best thing to do is to romantically kiss the boots of their rulers.
