You are correct.
If you keep the "printing presses" blasting away at the Treasury sooner or later the economy cannibalizes itself via hyper-inflation or compressionary-deflation. Either way it eventually comes apart.

Mark Twain said "History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme." Shades of the French Revolution? You betcha'! as Caribou Barbie would say. One commonality being that the elites then largely never saw the unwinding of their status quo, and the subsequent bloodbath, coming, and our elites today seem equally clueless of what can happen and how quickly things can change when in an obvious condition of instability.
Weimar Germany? Check! Scared, angry and otherwise disenfranchised people will reliably rally behind a charismatic (or not-so charismatic) strongman who promises better times and maybe even some sweet revenge on whoever can be painted as the enemy, before driving everyone over the cliff.
So pick your poison: a possibly psychotic and parasitic "businessman" who specializes in the art of strategic bankruptcy and stiffing the contractors, or a conscienceless war-hawk and unapologetic career shill for what has clearly become a parasitic banking system. And both appear to be very accomplished pathological liars.
Isn't freedom of choice bloody awesome?
A none-of-the-above option that would force a full stop and re-boot of the process would be a handy thing to have right about now.
