I think everyone needs to define the terms. A 'drop' in the increase of inflation does not mean inflation has dropped to where it was before, it merely means it has taken two steps forward and one back. Or slowed its rate of increase. When the gov't, media, talking heads, etc. say "inflation has dropped 2.5 per cent" they do not mean inflation is AT 2.5 per cent, they mean it is 2.5 per cent less than it was prior - which is still higher than it was a few years ago. And the actual rates may be much worse than described, as again, Core CPI leaves out prime drivers of inflation like fuel and food. I mean, where do people think their goods come from? Most are delivered to retail by trucks that run on diesel.
The current administration's 'build back better' nonsense (i.e. UN Agenda 2030) is no better than the old soviet five year plans. Central planning tends to work poorly, in addition to relying on coercion and violation of people's rights. Look to Venezuela, as some said. Of note, given this is a 1911 forum, is that one of the first things Venezuela did was disarm citizens. It made possible much of everything that followed:
2012 is when the Chavez regime disarmed civilians, ordering them to turn in their guns and ordering all gun stores to close and surrender their inventory to the state.
The plan was not just the creation of socialist strongman Chavez, but was backed by and aided by the United Nations, which helped Chavez disarm his victims:
“The UN, which worked closely with the Venezuelan government in the development of the civilian disarmament program and will participate in some elements of its implementation, also called on the media to support the controversial schemes. Resident UN Coordinator for Venezuela Alfredo Missair praised the anti-gun program and reiterated the global body’s support for it, the Venezuelan National Assembly reported
on its website.
“You are also responsible in this important fight — we need the cooperation of not only the United Nations but of the media,” Missair told the press, “so, we are offering all the support they require to do a good job.”
In 2013, under Obama, the United States
signed on to a UN 'arms trade' treaty, intended to push such civilian disarmament on the nations that signed, effectively posing a risk that we end up like every other nation that has allowed itself to be disarmed.
Fortunately, the senate never ratified the treaty, and on April 26, 2019, President Donald Trump announced in his speech at an annual nra meeting that the United States will be withdrawing its signature on the treaty. He signed an order to this effect on stage (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arms_Trade_Treaty
