Climate. Now who wudda thought. The very mega-corporations and mega-billionaires behind the globalization of the world economy over recent decades, whose pursuit of shareholder value and cost reduction who have wreaked so much damage to our environment both in the industrial world and in the under-developed economies of Africa, Asia, Latin America, are the leading backers of the “grass roots” decarbonization movement from Sweden to Germany to the USA and beyond. Is it pangs of guilty conscience, or could it be a deeper agenda of the financialization of the very air we breathe and more? Continue Reading
You can bet that whenever you find people analyzing the root of a problem you will also find other people trying to derail those efforts with dishonest arguments. For reasons that we can guess at but are rarely able to confirm, there are some folks out there that get rather agitated at constructive discussion among their fellow humans. One of the most common tactics for hijacking the discussion of a problem is to suggest that it is “all pointless” unless those same people can offer a grand solution to the problem. This is Alinsky-style disruption 101. Continue Reading
False hope breeds crippling apathy – This is what I have to think to myself when I see the news media fervor over the second arrest of (alleged) billionaire Jefferey Epstein, or similar events which in most cases end up fading into the background and forgotten. The public’s favorite distraction has always been to watch high profile people kicked out of their castles in the clouds, but I would point out that even when the globalists sacrifice one of their own in the public eye it is usually only to satiate the masses and their hunger for justice for a very short time. The system is not designed to root out evil; it is designed to obscure and perpetuate evil. Continue Reading
Capitalists have claimed responsibility for America’s past economic success. Let’s begin by setting the record straight. American success had little to do with capitalism. This is not to say that the US would have had more success with something like Soviet central planning.
Prior to 1900 when the frontier was closed, America’s success was a multi-century long success based on the plunder of a pristine environment and abundant natural resources. Individuals and companies were capitalized simply by occupying the land and using the resources present.
As the population grew and resources were depleted, the per capita resource endowment declined. Continue Reading
Basically there are four investment funds – the Big Four – that control the US economy:
• Vanguard Group,
• State Street,
The 8 largest US financial companies – JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, U.S. Bancorp, Bank of New York Mellon and Morgan Stanley – are 100% controlled by ten shareholders. The “big four” are major shareholders in all of these 8 financial institutions. Continue Reading
By Brandon Smith When discussing the fact that globalists often deliberately engineer economic crisis events, certain questions inevitably arise. The primary question being “Why would the elites ruin a system that is already working in their favor…?” The answer is in some ways complicated because there are multiple factors that motivate the globalists to do the things they do. However, before we get into explanations we have to understand that this kind of question is rooted in false assumptions, not logic. The first assumption people make is that that current system is the ideal globalist system – it’s… Continue Reading
Perhaps this is an overly broad generalization, but I feel there is an almost universal feeling among the public that there is something intrinsically annoying about academia. The source of this annoyance is up for debate, but I believe it stems from the image academics project versus the reality of their personal character and intent. Your average university approved academic will say that some people find them distasteful because they are “so smart”, and this makes others envious. I would say it’s the opposite – the average academic is actually quite ignorant, but brandishes a false image of being a genius. This is why I often refer to them as “academic idiots”.
Fake intelligence and faux wisdom are like sandpaper to people’s exposed nerves, and the average person is not as dumb as academics think they are. Continue Reading
The behaviour of central bankers is rarely (if ever) given sustained coverage in the national press. Outside of prominent economic channels, developments from within institutions such as the International Monetary Fund and the Bank for International Settlements are seldom remarked upon. Instead, attention is restricted to the latest round of political theatrics which serve to disguise the actions and intentions of globalist planners.
As the furore of Brexit gained in intensity last month, BIS General Manager Agustin Carstens gave a speech at the Central Bank of Ireland 2019 Whitaker Lecture. Under the heading, “The future of money and payments”, Carstens mapped out what has been a long standing vision of globalists – namely, to acquire full spectrum control of the international financial system through the gradual abolition of what Bank of England governor Mark Carney has called “tangible assets” i.e. physical money.
The ‘future of money‘ narrative is one that both the BIS and the IMF have been actively promoting since the advent of Brexit and Donald Trump’s presidency. Here are some links to speeches made by both Christine Lagarde and Agustin Carstens: Continue Reading
The Global Economic Reset Begins With An Engineered Crash Wednesday, 13 March 2019 06:28 Brandon Smith For a few years now, since at least 2014, the phrase “global economic reset” has been circulating in the financial world. This phrase is used primarily by globalist institutions like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to describe an event in which the current system as we know it will either die out or evolve into a new system where “multilateralism” will become the norm. The reset is often described in an ambiguous way. IMF banking elites will usually mention the end results… Continue Reading
What can we Learn From the Middle Ages About Collapse? The Great Challenge of the Seneca Bottleneck The idea that a collapse is awaiting our civilization seems to be gaining ground, although it has not reached the mainstream debate. But no civilization before ours escaped collapse, so it makes sense to think that the entity we call “The West” is going to crash down, badly, in the future. Then, just as it happened to the Romans long ago, we are going to enter a new world. What will it be? Will it look like the Middle Ages?… Continue Reading
Will Globalists Sacrifice The Dollar To Get Their ‘New World Order’? Author: Brandon Smith Trade is a fundamental element of human survival. No one person can produce every single product or service necessary for a comfortable life, no matter how Spartan their attitude. Unless your goal is to desperately scratch an existence from your local terrain with no chance of progress in the future, you are going to need a network of other producers. For most of the history of human civilization, production was the basis for economy. All other elements were secondary. At some point, as trade… Continue Reading
The U.N.’s Global Warming War On Capitalism: An Important History Lesson Larry Bell ContributorI write about aerospace, environment, energy, Second Amendment policy The U.N.’s latest climate alarmist meeting in Doha, Qatar experienced somewhat of a different sort of man-made crisis in December in the form of a typhoon named Christopher Monckton, the third viscount of Benchley, advisor to former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and climate realist. Temporarily purloining a vacant microphone assigned to a delegate from Burma, he gave the entire audience some very terrifying news…announcing that “in the 16 years we have been coming to these conferences,… Continue Reading
Brandon Smith The concept of using the economy as a weapon is not an alien one to most people. Generally, we understand the nature of feudalism and how various groups can be herded onto centralized plantations to be exploited for their labor. Some people see this as a consequence of “capitalism,” and others see it as an extension of socialism/communism. Sadly, many people wrongly assume that one is a solution to the other — meaning they think that crony capitalism is a solution to communist centralization or that communism is a solution to the corruption of crony capitalism.… Continue Reading
History tends to show that urbanization has always been accompanied by a movement of agriculture towards monocultures and peasant exploitation. When a city became established and grew into an initially rural area with self-sustaining polyculture farms, in order to survive, it had to put in place a whole process of food supply from the surrounding countryside. The peasants had to produce much more, and in such a way that the harvest was faster. The polyculture practiced on a self-sufficient family farm, on a surface of the order of a few hectares (between two hundred and five hundred square feet), allowed… Continue Reading
The Beast, aka the System in which we live, feeds on our excessive consumption, our emotional outbursts, our desires, our fears and our divisions and conflicts. It has survived globally for centuries or even millennia thanks to our ignorance. Many of us are even unaware of our existence, unaware of living in an unnatural, artificial system. Yet, if we ever have to live on a truly new world, renovated, regenerated, healed, in good health … we will have to let the Beast die of hunger. And for that we must stop feeding it permanently. Here is a sample of actions… Continue Reading
While waiting for a world of total gratuity, selfless gift and sharing of resources (in ten thousand or a hundred thousand years, perhaps), let us leave despite all the mold of modern economy and finance. Consider a feasible world in the near future, in which almost all goods and services could be free. How could this be easily possible? If we consider money as a form of energy that can facilitate trade, then the most logical is to measure its value in energy units, for example in joules or Calories. When a human being does a job (whether in the… Continue Reading
In various parts of the world, there are already alternative arrangements to official currencies to facilitate the exchange of works, services, products or goods. For example, the page https://www.ritimo.org/Monnaies-sociales-complementaires mentions: [Translation] Social & complementary currencies 2011-12-08 The so-called social and complementary currencies (or complementary Community currencies, MCC) designate exchange devices, payment tools, organized around a specific unit of account, allowing the exchange of goods and services and used in addition to the official monetary policy of the country in question (the dollar, the euro, etc.). Largely ignored by mainstream economics, these currencies still occupy a prominent place in the search… Continue Reading
