Truth in cartoons

Predictive programming for children of the 80’s…from the Daily Economist blog.

Sometimes, cartoons as well as hollywood movies can foreshadow future events in real life.  V for Vendetta pictured a George Orwell police state in Britain where cameras and recorders would view and monitor every movement of its people.  Today, a large portion of those events have come to pass in London.

Now we find an older obscure GI Joe cartoon where their nemesis Cobra, has decided to bring the global monetary system to its knees by destroying the dollar and instituting the Cobra currency.


“Due to the financial irresponsibility and incompetence of your leaders, Cobra has found it necessary to restructure your nation’s economy.”

With Europe and the US on the precipice of monetary collapse once again, is it safe to assert that perhaps Cobra is working for the IMF in preparation of a new global currency?
