Immutable Crisis Lies Ahead - Remarks On The Post-Election Actions Of Greece’s New Prime Minister And The Evil Pathology Enslaving All Of Europe

2014

I pilfered the above picture and it was lifted by someone else and so on and so on.   There is no original attribution so I’ll simply chalk up the attribution to the great people of Greece.   But I wanted to start this post with this graphic to show the absolute criminality of what is happening in Europe.   (Remember, this is only a nation of 11 million people.)  This is not a U.S. phenomena.   And it’s not a Greek phenomena.  It’s global.   And it’s enforced through class and hierarchy.  ie, The state.  The predators in Europe are every bit as vile as here in America.  In fact, so far they are worse as this picture shows.  Give them time.  They’ll pull every bit of evil they can out of their hats in the U.S. too.   And so will China and everywhere else.   If humanity did to the pathological evil in this world what it is doing to them, they would all be living on the edge, dead or suffering massive misery.   It’s incontrovertible this evil literally has not a f*cking care in the world if all of us die as long as they maintain control of us.  They are clearly purely evil psychopaths lacking in any human empathy.   Don’t kid yourself.   Our inability to call evil for what it is has allowed this pathology to grow and flourish for far too long.  There is a palpable evil in this world and it is unprecedented in scope and scale.  Never has the world suffered under so much emotional, spiritual and physical violence.  What is coming our way is going to be far, far larger than anyone in the status quo imagines.  Back a decade ago one of the first posts I wrote that the world would literally shudder and shake when this cycle ends.  This at a time when we were “told” the world was experiencing unprecedented prosperity.  On the surface, and to those who really didn’t get understand what is going on,  and people who believe what they are told rather than thinking for themselves, it certainly did appear that way.  Karma is a bitch.

I want to go into some detail about monetary policy, Syriza’s plan and the Greek victory for  the far left in coalition with the far right in that nation. (Far left and far right are made-up terms used by pathology to trivialize human decency and democracy.  Because, to be honest, the Syriza part is not going far enough to create a new paradigm.  Or, as the status quo would say, they aren’t radical enough or threatening enough to their megalomania and evil.)  The new prime minister, Tsipras, is already shaking up the status quo.    Greek bank stocks and Greek debt are collapsing.  Of course, one of his campaign plans was to nationalize the banking system so frankly, if he does so, what their debt does or what banking stocks do is irrelevant except to the current paradigm of pure rot and fraud.    The current system must be pushed aside for humanity to move forward.  Collapse of existing paradigms is guaranteed if humanity is to ever move beyond the contrivances of criminal economic, banking and monetary systems.   Tsipras, like Beppe Grillo and other political outsiders rising to the forefront around the world, are definitely is not the moronic status quo political donkeys that are controlled by private forces, corporations, bankers and class.   They are well-versed in important topics rather than the general pall of extreme ignorance that defines almost all current politicians.  In America politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Obama, George Bush, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell define that pall.  I am being completely serious here.  American politicians are right up there with the world’s standard bearers for ignorance.   The two party monopoly presents us with endless false choices.  Choices of dunces.   A Confederacy of Dunces.  The criminal racket of extortion these two parties create relies on ignorance to flourish.    Literally every single politician I can think of in this nation is steeped in ignorance and arrogance, the most acrimonious of marriages, and one I personally loathe more than any other.  Ignorance is a condition we can all easily overcome.  Ignorant arrogance is a terminal condition for which there is no treatment.   Now we are seeing why many of our founders wanted to ban political parties.  Merit can never rise to the topic when control structures like political parties, registered corporations themselves, are there to prevent it.    We can expect Greece in some form is likely coming to Amerika sooner or later.  It may develop an American twist but when the pain reaches its necessary threshold, and it will without massive reforms even larger than in the Great Depression, we are headed for another revolution, a long time theme on here.  Not necessary a violent revolution.  In fact, I have written many times that it doesn’t need to be and hopefully won’t be.  But rather a revolution of our minds.  That is the kind of revolution the status quo fears the most.   They want us to be ignorant and respond violently.  They are prepared for that.  It simply validates their greater and greater use of violence to “protect” order, society, themselves or whatever bullshit they dream up.  What they have no answer to is a revolution of the mind or enlightenment and awakening.  Just like in 1776.   And mind you, this is just like 1776, and the start of the Civil War, and the Soviet Union, and the British Empire, and the Roman Empire.   The pathology of evil throughout history rhymes in many ways.   But this is far more sinister than any of them.

Regardless, Tsipras has written and spoken publicly for the last year on a multitude of very important topics.  He clearly understands the pure criminality of austerity as imposed by his Brussels-German-French overlords and the crooks at the IMF.   That said, he has some contradictory assessments of what needs to happen to solve the problem.   That means crisis almost certainly lies ahead not only for the EU but for Greece.   It will get worse before it gets better.  Likely much worse.  And Tsipras, if he continues down this road, will be the instigator of that crisis whether he means to be or not.   Political actions have massive unintended consequences.  He is trying to maintain the existing paradigm and work within its controlling constructs in an effort to reform it.    We are well past reform.  We need new paradigms.   Tsipras wrote early last year that Europe needed a new New Deal.   He wants new terms on loans and an opportunity within the existing central banking and pan-European money paradigm to recover Greece.   That’s quite an impossible paradox of attempting to find truth within the constructs of control.   There is absolutely no way this will work.   The system must be redesigned from the ground up.

Since his election he has penned a letter to Europe and Germany.   It’s a very eloquent and I would encourage everyone to consider reading it as I will be discussing it below.   And his discussion points are relevant globally as the criminal class is global and their oppressive evil and violence is global.  Additionally, here is Syriza’s 40 point plan to recover Greece’s economy.    It looks more like a cross between Jeffersonian Democracy (basically Athenian Democracy and that should be no surprise since we are talking Athens two thousand years later.) and the words of Jesus of Nazareth than a communist manifesto.    (This includes a pro-peace foreign policy that calls out the neoliberal warmongering, violent, control-driven doctrine of the Europeans and Americans.)  By the way, I wouldn’t get too caught up in Tsipras’ political ties.  Communism has been a very active political element in Greece for the last century.  They have pretty much been a democracy to some degree and the communist party has played a role in that.   I abhor communism as an ideal founded in the cult of statism and control but people can label themselves whatever they want in relation to the state and it can mean anything under the sun.   Democrat, Republican and Libertarian in this nation means corporate tyranny, class, the subversion of individual rights, wage slavery, economic misery and Godlessness.  What matters are people’s deeds and actions.  You can call yourself Santa Claus if your actions are right and just and true. 

With that, I want to note a point I made on here years ago.  If capitalism and free markets were so just and democratic and naturally obvious to those who are oppressed, then why are the oppressed people of the world living under capitalist exploitation always rising up in the form of communism or some other type of rebellion?   Did the devil make them do it?   And why is America and Europe always fighting against these movements and subverting nations around the world who are trying to break free from capitalist exploitation?  And why has the Pope and other people seeking decency and kindness called out capitalism as brutal and inhumane?  And why did we fight a Revolutionary War in 1776 when Adam Smith’s capitalist manifesto, Wealth of Nations, was written in that very year?  Because it’s all a brainwashing snow job.   You may think Adam Smith was an authentic dude and his writings have been bastardized.  And maybe that is true.  But the reality is in 1776 Britain’s capitalism was a virus and his delusional writings of grandeur are about a mythological system that simply has never actually existed in the real world.    All isms, capitalism, communism, socialism, feudalism, fascism are simply different variations of the same dynamic.  That is, simply different flavors of forced state violence.  They are control constructs meant to enrich a plutocratic ruling class who hates the idea of democracy, self-rule and human freedom and use the force of the state to dominate humanity emotionally, spiritually and physically. 

I want to address below some of what is going on with Greece and Europe.  And why Tsipras’ attempts to modify the existing paradigm and work within this system are going to fail.  Whether it fails completely and rapidly or fails in pieces over time is the only question.  And that cannot be completely answered because we don’t know yet what actions all of the actors will take.  But, that said, critical mass is probably a very small number in the world today.  So, once we reach it in various constructs, things are going to happen very quickly and uncontrollably.  Look at how rapidly Greece’s new prime minister became the scourge of the European plutocracy.  Just a matter of months ago we were told the European crisis was over.  Ahem.

One of the outcomes I wrote about when every single mouthpiece in the mainstream media was blowing bulloney that that the euro was honest money or above crisis or other equally ignorant remarks while I was writing that the euro was headed for disaster and failure.  Now, certainly there have been euroskeptics in Europe since before I ever wrote anything publicly.  And many of those Europeans were very shrewd and very knowledgeable about money.  They knew this system would never work from the very beginning.  None of them I am aware of were politicians, corporate executives, economists, financiers, bankers or central bankers.   If they were, they were mocked as ignorant.   That’s part of the conformity of thought, ignorance and group think that is so palpable in the ruling class of corporate and political control.   I guess we now are starting to see who really are the ignoramuses.   It’s not humanity.  It’s the system and its controlling class of dunces.

As I have noted on here many times, the only viable solution to move forward in this country or in Europe is to default on this debt.  Period.  Debt is a myth.  It isn’t real.  And wiping it away is done every single day when it benefits the system.  Oftentimes debt is wiped in return for equity.   Or theft by the plutocracy.   That is what has been happening in Greece with the forced privatization of democratic institutions.  Wiping debt out of the goodness of one’s heart never happens because this global financial system is criminal.   Now, that default can be an orderly monetization and forgiveness, or if the criminal class won’t yield, then it should be an outright default.   The vast majority of people in this world didn’t benefit one iota from this debt binge and should not be forced to repay it.  It was the plutocracy that enriched themselves.  In a system where money is debt, society and the working class gets the debt and the plutocratic class has gotten all of the money.  

Money is fungible.   So Tsipras will never effectively wield the control necessary to change the ECB structure so that it supports investment in a particular country and locality as he wishes.   If the ECB hands out money once or twice to each particular state in the Eurozone for public investment as Tsipras wishes, there is nothing to stop that money from eventually leaking out of the local economies and out of Greece all together.  Or, money in the place of new money granted by the ECB leaving Greece.   This is the exact same top-down, centrally-planned control structure that is in place within the U.S. and Europe today that has seen that exact same leakage.  In fact, that is what has created mass crisis in Greece in the first place.  Deregulated, private profit-driven-money of capitalism is going to flee any particular nation  or locality if it can gain a comparative advantage somewhere else.   Private interests are predatory and rent-seeking.   Trying to direct investment into Greece with the same privately controlled and corporate-controlled money that can be used in a dozen other countries will never work.    Even if Tsipras is moderately successful in ECB reforms, the only this will do is concentrate more monetary power into the hands of the Greek state in the short term.  State-directed investment may temporarily flourish but longer-term Greeks will continue to suffer and crisis will simply reappear.   This is simply a failure of Tsipras mandate-driven ideology.  State-directed communism, while on appearance may seem noble, simply does not work.    State spending will not re-ignite democracy, local investment or economic determinism for the Greek people or anyone else.  That’s why Obama’s project-ready bullshit was a complete and utter disaster that only encouraged plunder by plutocrats, corporations and state bureaucrats.   Private, predatory interests, and public predatory interests in this system simply loot the state through its attempt at investment.   Greece has become notorious for this.   This level of statism is why the United States and Greece are choking on their own economic vomit in the first place.  All money in some way, shape or form pays fealty to Washington criminals.   Tsipras is asking for that same dynamic in his supposed attempts at reforming the ECB.   It will eventually fail even if he were to extract mild banking or ECB reforms.  

The only way to create a new New Deal or economic determinism in Europe, as Syriza wishes to do, is for Greece to return to the drachma and other nations to return to their own local currencies.    Beppe Grillo clearly understands this and has called for a return to the Italian lira.  Tsipras apparently does not or he has a hidden agenda, which clearly is possible.   He is a politician and politics is not an institution of truth but rather an institution of control.   The only way to create a global economy is with global money.   The only way to create a national economy is with national money.  The only way to create a local economy is with local money.   And the only way to have local money is to place the power of money into the hands of local communities and individuals within those communities through local democracy.   This is a statement of treason to the anti-democratic forces of  class, hierarchy, politicians, corporate capitalism, central bankers, Wall Street, etc that dominate humanity and, as it pertains to this discussion, Europe, the ECB and the EU.   Now, I am getting ahead of myself as I have written many times I will eventually put up a post on what a democratic banking and money system would like look under my solutions.  Although I have laid out many clear monetary and banking solutions already, I have not placed them into a single post or single cogent framework and I have purposefully excluded many working pieces.   So, for now you can noodle on those remarks and let your own creativity flow.  You may even have better ideas than I do on how to accomplish these goals.  But Greece has to recreate local economies.  To do that, they need local money available not to the Greek government but to the Greek people and Greek communities.  The euro is not going to do that unless the power of money within the entire Eurozone is placed into the hands of localities.   But that would take a political union and there is absolutely no way Europeans are going to give up their cultural identity to be run by a centrally-planned bureaucracy even more loathsome than the European Union and the European Central Bank. 

I want to digress a moment into a sidebar discussion for the umpteenth time.  Too many people fall into this mythical lie of the pathological that the only honest money is gold money.    You never hear any of these people talk about gold money being democratic money.  It’s honest money.  WTF is that?  Honest for whom?  The people who own all of the gold?  That is, the state or the aristocracy or both.   Gold money is the money of tyranny.  Ron Paul is one of the perpetrators of this myth.  Ron Paul also believes liberty is to subjugate yourself to corporate dominance as he is an Ayn Rand disciple.  Rand wrote of the glory of corporate leaders being able to exploit workers for their own desire to produce.  Workers were to be exploited.  There is nothing democratic about private, for-profit corporate power controlling your economic fate.   (Although I certainly appreciate many of Rand’s tenets of objectivism being based in individual and natural rights.)  And there is nothing democratic about gold money.   How many times have you ever heard any of these ideologues say gold money is democratic money?  NEVER.  Because democratic money is the antithesis of gold money as I have written in extreme detail and explanation time and again.   Gold money is loved by the rich and the state.  In fact, there is zero, and I mean zero historical example of gold money being anything other than for the rich, class and the state.   Ask the person swimming in his misery in Ferguson if he cares one iota if we have gold money.   He’s gladly put his hands on fiat money.   Democratic money is fiat money and is abundantly available to all of our citizens.   Our nation was founded on fiat, debt-free paper money.  We fought the Revolutionary War to rid ourselves of the king’s private, debt-based money and the gold looters that turned the colonies into a shithole of economic misery thus playing the primary role in starting the Revolutionary War.   

Tsipras’ plan of working within the European economic and banking aristocracy and its control constructs will fail because central banking as it has always been practiced in Europe and North America is designed as a criminal enterprise.  The central control of an entire economy and its money is the only method through which a society’s state-propped-up class and privilege like corporate capitalism or communism can effectively maintain its theft and control for any period of time.  Central banks are looting mechanisms that are enforced by the violence of the state.  And the private, debt-based creation of money by member banking oligarchs is an affront to freedom, democracy and democratic economics.  To enslave humanity to the usurious private interests of a private, profit-driven banking syndicate controlled by central authority is the conduit through which systemic economic theft occurs and an artificial state-created aristocracy is created and perpetuated.  The central bank is the enabler created by the state.  The private, profit-driven banks are the theft mechanism.   Corporations of all ilk then enforce this mechanism through economic rent extraction, wage slavery and surplus value theft.   

So, the Tsipras plan to work within the ECB and European Union, both of which are criminal enterprises, is never going to work.  There is a finite amount of power, be it economic, monetary, human rights or whatnot.  For this plan to work, Tsipras is asking the thieving aristocracy to give up those centralized rights and grant them back to the people and communities in Greece that they stole this power, money and control from in the first place.  That is never, ever going to happen.  This system was set up as a system of economic and monetary domination and slavery from the very beginning.   

Now, let’s take a final look at why the euro is uniquely positioned to fail and why it is different than the dollar.   The reason why Europe’s crisis is different than the U.S., and why Tsipras’ plans are literally guaranteed to fail is because in the United States there is a central political authority to inflict the violence necessary for debt enslavement, usury enslavement, corporate rent extraction and the criminal denial of democratic economic rights required for this system to be enforced.    The U.S. central state has total authority to strip people of their democratic economic rights, strip people of their wealth through taxes, usury, corporate slavery, debt and brutal economic policies, strip people of their ability to stay alive through massive austerity and on and on.  The U.S. has all of the political levers of violence in place to dominate humanity that the ECB and the Euro plutocrats don’t have because there is no political union.  The ECB has no ability to tax, directly enslave Europeans to debt and usury, or levy punitive political policies that guarantees this monetary and economic control construct can perpetuate itself.    They lack a central polity to enforce a system of violent economic slavery and misery.   That is why the ECB and the euro will fail.   It was designed from the very beginning to be an authoritarian system of economic domination achieved through the centralized control of money, usury and debt but it isn’t backed with the necessary political violence to enforce it.    This isn’t some radical view of reality.  It’s the only true reality.  The state has always existed to serve privilege through violence.   Does anything think Jamie Dimon, Lloyd Blanfein or Monsanto’s CEO or CEOs in the MI complex or the health care complex or any of the other pathological predators who have raped our society on behalf of the investor class, politicians and themselves could be anything more than gas station attendants without the effective use of state violence to literally steal from the mass of Americans?  What the f#ck do these people actually know that in some way can be used to benefit humanity?  Did they cure cancer?  Come up with sustainable agricultural solutions to feed the masses?  Design a bridge?   Know how to plumb a house?  Create a renewable energy system?   How about legalized stealing through the force of the state?  That’s literally all they have shown in their ability.  That is the only way any individual person can achieve this level of wealth while hundreds of millions of people live on the edge of monetary and economic misery. 

The euro is finished without the state unleashing greater violence, misery and control constructs on the masses in Europe to ensure its tyranny can continue to be shoved down the throats of the entire continent.  Tsipras would save his nation a lot of misery, wasted time and attempted solutions that will not work by simply doing what needs to be done.    That is default.  And then nationalize the banking system and encourage Greek economic determinism through the application of public capital (democratic banking and democratic money)  to create not only public investment but private investment and community/human development.

A Sign Of The Times–The Glorification Of Murder & Violence And The Movie American Sniper

In order to get you to kill someone for me, I have to instill in your mind a fear-based, control construct.  That is exactly what a belief systems is.  It’s all it is.   In many ways belief systems appear to have a trance-like effect of creating ignorance.   That is how pathology controls humanity.   It’s how Charles Manson got cult members to bludgeon and butcher innocent people.   Belief systems are ego-created control constructs created out of fear that keep our mind from connecting to truth and our highest good.    This is exactly how someone can literally be shown the truth and yet be blinded to its reality.   We  cling to our belief systems out of a state of fear.  My son could not have killed that man.   Human-caused global warming has to be real.  Peak Oil is a certainty.   Free market capitalism is a bastion of democracy.   The United States is a global force for good.   Work is the ultimate expression of humanity and you should aspire to be a wage slave.  The military-industrial complex murders people around the world for the benefit of freedom and humanity.   Where did you learn all of those brainwashing belief systems?  From class and hierarchy who operate from an intent of control.  (Remember, as noted on here ad nauseam, the human mind has only two intents – the intent of control created by the fear-driven ego and the intent of truth driven by our higher power.  This is the contradictory duality of the human condition.)  

The primitive state of fear-driven belief systems are a very, very consuming reality in the world today.  This is exactly how any military operates.  Not just in the United States but in any standing army around the world.  By instilling a fear-based, control construct (propagandized belief systems) into the minds of those who serve standing armies and into violent, ignorant societies that glorify standing armies, violence, aggression and war.  That's why basic training in any military involves first emotionally break down all recruits then building them into the authority-controlled robots that do the killing of authority without questioning how or why.   Recruits are literally brainwashed.  All violence, be it emotional, spiritual or physical, or against ourselves or someone else, is a disconnection from our divine higher power created literally through narrow-mindedness or ignorance.   It is ludicrous to ever believe humanity can achieve connection, forgiveness, peace and community through war.  War is a primitive, ego-driven control construct.  And it is man’s most evil invention.

This is how the state (class and hierarchy) gets people to murder to protect their power and control over others.  Or, maybe I should say those for whom the state runs a protection racket.  Because that is what the state is.  It’s a protection racket for privileged state actors and benefactors.   The easiest way for pathological evil to get someone else to act violently against another human being is to base that on instilling belief systems creating superficial but recognizable differences.   That person doesn’t look like you.  Or, that person doesn’t have the same religious beliefs as you.    It is a form of dehumanization and objectification that brainwashes the ego into rationalizing murder.   Hitler was a master at this.   And so were Southern plantation slave owners.   Frankly, so is American Empire.  If I told you someone walking down the street was your enemy and you should walk over and kill him or her, would you do it?   Well, then why would the same person kill a total stranger who has done absolutely nothing to them?   Because they have been entranced by evil.   It’s the exact same method a pyschopath uses to control its victims.   The method the state uses to get people to kill for it is exactly how Charles Manson operated.  

In a continuation of the theme I have been writing about since December, I want to highlight the record box office take of the movie American Sniper.   This is definitely a sign of the times and the insane level of propaganda,  indoctrination and ignorance typical within the cult of statism and the propaganda that drives the delusional reality for modern corporate capitalist societies and the state.  Statism is clearly the most successful cult of the last century.   It trumps any religion by a large margin.  Proof of this is incontrovertible.  How many supposed Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist nations, as just an example, have literally butchered more than one hundred million people in the name of the state in the last century?  And how many of those who were killed, were killed by complete strangers?  (Necrometrics puts the number at 207,000,000.  I thought I would put that in numerical form because it seems to have a more profound degree of meaning.  At least to me.)  

Those who serve the state and buy into its endless violence are its brainwashed zealots.  Whether that is corporate capitalism, which is clearly a manifestation of state violence, or outright war or any other form of aggression glorified by states, (those are nearly endless) it’s really just different characterizations of the same evil pathology that dominates humanity today.   Really, I don’t consider the actions of ISIS to be that much different than the actions of those who support the cult of statism.  In fact, as noted on here ad nauseam, the state has murdered well more people than ISIS ever will.   The modern states of Russia and the U.S. have together murdered upwards of a million people in the last decade or so.    This supposedly during a time of unprecedented global prosperity.  Or so we are told.  You know, those pesky belief systems.  The numbers may be arguable but let’s be frank;  ISIS isn’t going to murder a million people nor is it going to enslave billions more under its system of emotional, spiritual and physical violence as the state has.   Not that evil has degrees.  Evil is evil.  There is no truth to lesser evil or compromising one’s morality in serving evil for a greater good.  These are all ego-created rationalizations and I will be talking more about this in the continuation of this theme in coming posts.  

I have noted many times on here I am as close to a pacifist as one can be without actually labeling myself as one.  I’m not a big fan of labels anyway.  There are many paradoxes in rationalizing violence.  One is that as long as the state (violence) exists, I must protect myself from the pathological behavior of other states.   I must use the violence of the state to stop the violence of other states.  Like Hitler.  Or ISIS.  (ISIS is clearly a class-based control construct trying to form its own pathological state.)   That’s a contradiction of massive proportions but I can rationalize it.   The problem with rationalizations is that who determines how far our rationalizations go?   The ego can rationalize violence to the nth degree and once I begin rationalizing, I eventually dig myself a hole that is impossible to get out of.   That is the hole humanity is in today because of its endless rationalizations.   I will be talking more about this.  The truth is violence is violence.  Even in self-defense.   Yet, I personally try to draw the line (rationalize) at someone who personally threatens me.   Not who the pathological state tells me is a threat but who personally has called out my name or person in threats or actions.  

Regardless, there really is no moral justification to support any kind of violence other than through ego-created rationalizations.   I can’t quite come to the conclusion that there is never a situation where I should not  defend myself  when threatened with violence.   Yet in doing so, I find myself supporting the very ignorance which I am so against.   Which, of course, is purely contradictory hypocrisy.  But that is part of the massive contradictory duality of the human condition.  All people are ignorant, violent hypocrites and all people are divine. 

Most people in today’s world don’t really understand violence, but if you do understand, then you appreciate the only way the world can ever move forward into a period of lasting harmony and connection is if someone first stops and says I will no longer participate in any violence against myself or anyone else or the natural world.   That includes spiritual, emotional and physical violence.  Even if it leads to my own death or demise.   But to do so forces us to face our own greatest fear and the world’s greatest source of violence.  That is, the ego’s fear of its own impermanence.  I am certain beyond any doubt that the truth is incontrovertible - the only way to completely eradicate evil from this world is to be completely nonviolent.   Explaining that is for another post.  But it does mean the permanent disappearance of the state and its hierarchical constructs that idolize moves like American Sniper

Updated: Greek Elections Sweep Out The Pathological Predators

Update:  The far left Syriza Party has agreed to a coalition with the far right Greek Independent Party.  This exposes the massive fraud of political parties.  That is, humanity is divided by pathological evil’s  fear-“created” differences to control them for the benefit of the state and its class-based, anti-democratic benefactors.  This unity coalition is certainly coming to America and other nations as people wake up to the truth.  It’s not the faux left-vs-right paradigm created by pathological politicians, it’s the right versus wrong paradigm created by our own divinity’s enlightenment.   This ties in with a long-time theme on here that both political parties in this nation are headed for extinction.  First written at a time when the infatuation level with Obama was deafening.   Let me make another updated remark to this victory.  I certainly hold little expectation that Syriza or their new prime minister, a deeply avowed communist, will magically solve all of Greece’s problems.   They won’t.  They have no experience and many of their solutions will likely be untried and unproven.  They have the potential to make the crisis worse.    But the point is that Greeks have found the courage to release themselves from what they already know.   To do so takes great courage; an expression of divinity.  To plot a new path without the net of existing paradigms and belief systems is an awesome achievement of a freed human mind.   Americans are still living within the paradigm of fear that enslaves us to existing paradigms and belief systems.  The pain and suffering has not reached a level of forcing enough people to abandon these beliefs and paradigms.  They will.   It’s only a matter of time.  Enlightenment is a process not an event.  But once those fears are released, one begins to connect to and thus recognize their own divinity and worthiness.  The Greeks have made an amazing discovery within themselves just as many other peoples are all across the world. 

For me, this is the most important election of my life time.  Literally.   More so than Grillo’s party and movement in Italy because the Greek people are literally living under the savage jack boot of evil predators in the ECB, the EU, the IMF, multi-national corporations, multi-national private banks, Germany and France.  (Antonis is a name that can be replaced with hundreds of millions or more around the world who feel the same anger at the same criminals who are trying to seal all of our fate in a future of contrived misery.)  The massive dislocations in their society are an abomination of human rights.   The Greeks have swept out the predators in a landslide election.   I don’t know if the Syriza Party will win an outright majority but I certainly am hoping for that.   I could really care less if this party stays in power as long as they serve a primary purpose of breaking the backs of the pathological predators destroying humanity.   Now, let’s see what happens next.   Can Greek’s new leaders be threatened, bribed and intimidated into doing the evil of the pathological?  Or will Greeks, the birthplace of democracy, rise up and in a great bout of irony give these predators the dose of justice they deserve for creating and contriving the crises in the world today?

PBS Frontline Investigation: Putin The Pathological Who Murders, Rapes And Steals With Impunity

I watched this documentary on PBS last night.  It is now available online.  It is very profound and is a must watch.  It’s nearly impossible to contrive the reality of who Vladimir Putin is as reported by Frontline.   It would take a conspiracy of unimaginable proportions to take all of the disparate people interviewed and the facts they present.   Yes, some of the most paranoid will deny reality out of their own fears, but Russia is headed for its own self-created disaster.  And that has been a long-time theme on here.  As noted on here in past posts, Putin has butchered more people in his own nation than the U.S. has in Afghanistan or Iraq.  He steals and loots from the poor.   He destroys the rule of law to perpetuate a system of pure bribery and extortion.   And the Russian police and other politicians that have tried to arrest him over massive corruption charges have faired very unwell or ended up dead.  He is clearly one of the most pathological figures in the world today.  That useful idiots in the west idolize him because he is adept at manipulating others is a deception of enormous proportions.   Of course, this deception exists everywhere - radical Islam’s entrancement of western liberals, Peak Oil, human-caused global warming, American exceptionalism, free market corporate capitalism, Democrats vs Republicans (you versus me) and on and on and on. 

This ties directly into the larger post I am working on right now.   If there is one thing that is incontrovertible, it is the ego’s ability to create its own misery.   The world is full of what I have characterized as useful idiots who do no benefit to society or themselves by misinforming others in some fear-driven, ignorant, emotional misanalysis of reality. 

It is a sign of the times that no matter where I look, some amount of the population believes boogeymen are out to get them.   In almost all circumstances there’s no one out to get you.  There are only pathological people that are interested in perpetuating a system based on their primitive ego’s own self-interest.    We create these conspiracy theory lies in our mind because we are unable to explain a reality that is inconsistent with our tyrannical, fear-driven belief systems.  These lies or beliefs exist for one reason.  To protect the ego and subvert our ability to see the truth.  The ego will lie, cheat, manipulate, steal, terrorize our minds in order to protect itself.  One of those examples of lying, cheating, manipulating, stealing and terrorizing is the faux portrayal of Vladimir Putin as some victim of U.S. terrorism.  Some have even gone so far as to portray him as they savior of the world.  Pure ignorance and self-deceit. 

Putin is clearly a pathological evil.   That doesn’t mean the U.S. empire isn’t a great evil in the world.  It certainly is.   But by comparative, what the U.S. people live under versus the average Russian is a utopia. (As Frontline notes, Russia has the greatest wealth disparity in the world.  Greater than India.  The median Russian earns $800 a year and Putin is worth up to $70 billion.  Money he has clearly looted.  Russia is a pure play on plutocracy.)   I have written incessantly about many topics on here, including this one, because I see so many lies and misinformation on so many topics.  So many useful idiots and so many people who seek to perpetuate their own self-driven victimization and thus perpetuate misinformation and suffering for others.  

Vladimir Putin is not going to save humanity from the U.S. empire as some asinine people have actually written.  And the likelihood that someone is going to instantaneously appear to save you from yourself and your own victimizing beliefs certainly isn’t likely to happen either.  Whether that is a political savior or a greater Savior.   This whole cult of personality dynamic that is rampant in the world is a sign of the times.  It is a sign of the misery that evil has enslaved humanity to.  Whether that is a cult infatuation with Kim Kardashian, Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, Al Gore, Katy Perry, Queen Elizabeth, Ron Paul, of a coming Savior, of death and the macabre or any other cult figure is telling of the times in which we live.   We seek the inane and vacuous distractions from our own suffering.  The ego seeks to be saved from its own self-created misery.  And because the ego "believes" nothing else exists, it exalts the ego of others as part of that dynamic.     The reality is humanity has and always will suffer in its own squalor until humanity is willing to face and release its own fear-driven shackles that creates our own illusions. 

It’s time to wake up.  The dream isn’t real.

The Contradictions Of European State Liberalism Coming Home To Roost: The Terrorist Attacks In France

Update:  tens of thousands of Jews flee Paris due to ongoing attacks.  This is consistent with remarks out of Israel that there are mass immigrations of French Jews.

Let me start with some off-topic but timely remarks.  First, I am still working on my promised holiday or new year post.   This post is another segue into it.  Second, I want to update remarks made in a prior post some time ago where I noted how high the Dow Transports had risen.  The Dow Transports have now risen 73 times in the last forty years comparative to their rise of only one time in the forty years before that.    This is one measure of the massive, useless money printing of the Federal Reserve and the coming unintended consequences it has created.   Unintended consequences that cannot be stopped.   This is a sign of the scope and scale of illusion before you.  Literally everything most people think they know about money, capitalism, the global economy, employment, banking, politics, economics, their place in this world, who they really are and who they think they are and on and on.  It is all an illusion.  An illusion that has been building to a massive peak for at least forty years.   Building until literally everything about the global socioeconomic control system is going to change as truth reveals itself.  Literally every single thing.    The state has built up an illusion that is far, far, far more manipulated, contrived and manufactured than anything the Nazis or any prior totalitarian regime has created.  Far, far greater than the Soviet Union.    There isn’t any grand conspiracy theory behind this.   Just pure old-fashioned megalomania, pathology and evil.   That illusion is now collapsing.  That is also why oil is collapsing.   Because the truth about the global economy is becoming more and more difficult to contrive.  I wrote that we were headed for a collapse in oil in 2008 when it was nearing $150 a barrel and Goldman Sachs was calling for $300 oil.  I called oil’s rise in 2009, after its collapse, and I have been writing ever since that it is eventually going to collapse again.  Possibly to $10 a barrel.  We are now a ten spot away from retesting the 2008 collapse lows in oil.  And if we break that the next stop is about $20.  Why is this happening?   Because it was ordained long before this moment in time.  Decades.  And because everything that has happened since it was $10 a barrel (1998) has been an unsustainable illusion.  The China miracle, BRICs, oil, commodities, stocks, record corporate profits, American empire, debt and on and on and on.  It’s all a myth that has been created through state-enforced control constructs. 

The euro is at ten year lows and European class-based civilization, the reason for the Revolutionary War, is possibly in its final throws as we know it.  Wouldn’t it be ironic if the anti-austerity leaders in Athens ended up being responsible for sacking all of Europe’s class-based control system given it is the birthplace of direct democracy?   Europe is in the throws of major socioeconomic issues right now.  Duh!   Written on here before any of them were exposed.  Now look at what is revealing itself in Europe.  A cesspool of rot.   One issue that is revealing itself in Europe is the massive crisis of the Muslim immigrant population.   Let’s be frank.  There are some good things to be taken from religion.  Local fellowship and community of people who seek to lead a just and decent life is one of them.  But religious hierarchy and class are not one of them.  The same pathological predators who infiltrate class-based state constructs also infiltrate class-based religious constructs.  And they use terror and divisiveness to create artificial enemies, hatred, bigotry and Godlessness.  Just as the state does.  Religion is an institution of the ego, words uttered on here in past posts.  Most religions I am aware of are in some ways associated with the state or are state-created or state-endorsed constructs.  This was a major reason why so many people fled Europe for the New World.  Being taxed and forced into state-endorsed religion was and still is often reality.    This is essentially the basis for modern Islamofascism, which is nothing more than a terror-based, political control structure. 

As history clearly tells us, religion spreads through terror, murder and violence.   Much of what used to be Christian nations, such as Turkey, are all Muslim.  And now Islam is pressing on Europe itself and using age-old tactics in its battle.   And given the roots of modern organized Islam and Christianity both are creations of the state, why is that surprising?   The state exists for one reason.  To perpetuate violence on behalf of state actors.    (Mohammed became a politician and many of his writings became politicized as a state actor.  And that politicization is the basis for the predators who espouse radical Islam.   And the Roman Empire sought to defang the “radical” anti-state teachings of early Christians by sanitizing it to be consistent with state power and adopting it as the state religion before it destroyed the Empire’s halls of class and hierarchy.  Much of what was contained in early days of spiritual mysticism in the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth and other spiritual revolutionaries has absolutely nothing in common with modern-day Christianity or Islam.  In fact, many years ago I highlighted a book on here titled “The Family – The Secret Fundamentalism Behind American Power” that shows how our nation is ruled by neo-fascist religious fanatics every bit the equal of radical Islam.  Only in America could the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth be used as a recruiting tool for the Godlessness of the military-industrial complex, fighting wars of aggression, imperial domination, debt slavery, standing armies, wage slavery and corporate capitalism.) 

Child slavery rings, pedophelia and rape have exploded in some of the European nations with the highest concentration of Muslim immigrants.   (Do your own diligence.  The data is readily available.  Radical Islam is a pathology for hatred, misogyny and violence against non-believers. )  The vast majority of Muslims may be peaceful people, but radical Islam is a blight on humanity.   And they use class, hierarchy and terror to force good and decent Muslims into aligning with their violent, pathological goals just as the state uses class, hierarchy and terror to align good and decent Christians and people of all faiths to align to their violent pathological goals.  And, through the application of terror, murder and violence, radical Islam seeks to extend its reach.  Islam is not united in condemning all violence of any kind.   Until that happens, Islam will continue to be manipulated by hierarchical leadership comprised of evil and pathological predators.   Just like the state.

European liberals have stuck their heads up their asses and pretended issues with radical Islam don’t exist under the suppressive, dumbed-down meme of political-correctness and its outcome of faux tolerance for all people.   That faux tolerance is a myth that is now revealing its contradictions.  Since when do we tolerate systemic, ideological ignorance and violence?   Well, ever since state liberalism has placed its jack boot on the neck of humanity.   Now Europe has a monster Muslim problem and no solutions.  How does one create a cosmopolitan society when a large part of the population does not share a similar view of morality?  In other words, violence, rape, pedophelia, political domination, terrorism and other heinous beliefs are accepted norms within radical Islam.   Mind you, I am not convinced the U.S. does a better job of assimilating Islam into its culture as so many believe.   America’s pathological kyriarchy sees no color in skin or difference in religious beliefs.  We turn everyone who has the wherewithal into dumbed-down corporate drones and consumers as that has become the extent of much of our culture.  That pacifies their radicalization to some degree.   That is simply trading one form of violence for another.   And, by the way, while  not as obvious, the ideals of radical Islam  are often accepted within the halls of class and hierarchy of Christian nations.   Let me count the ways.  In many ways, I would say that radical Islam is where European state Christianity was some hundreds of years ago.    Christianity and society have evolved to the point where outward terrorism and murder in the name of God is no longer accepted.   But that doesn’t mean it still isn’t part of a more nuanced form of propaganda.  Take for example, U.S. military hegemony and its endless perpetuation of violence.  It is a more nuanced,propagandized form of doing God’s work through violence.    

 As it pertains to Islam, Europe, and the world at large, now has a dilemma.  Will people stand up against ignorance and violence and take down radical Islam, or will the continue to do as they have?  That is, pretend the issues don’t exist for fear of backlash from the Muslim community and its feeble, manipulated, pathological responses of being discriminated against?   This has been the standard response by the blight of European state liberalism.   And as a result, anti-Semitism is again a major issue in Europe - codependently, the liberal establishment and Islam have worked together to recreate that level of bigotry and hatred.   The liberal establishment that is the apologist for radical Islam.  And, in taking on their cause, liberals have adopted a similar hatred of Jews.  Just like with Hitler, once again, liberals have abandoned their morality and turned a blind eye to anti-Semitism.  

Here is the disconcerting and powerful reality to all of this.  With a huge non-assimilated Muslim population and its institutionalized, brainwashed hatred of Jews, Europe has no ability to ever come to the aid of any type of attack on Jews within their own borders or elsewhere without threatening their own power structure and, in the process, their own socioeconomic control systems.  Doing so would result in radical Islam launching violence and attacks within the borders of European states, thus creating their own internal violence against the state, against innocent citizens and ultimately, the possibility of European civil wars.   In other words, once again, European, and to a lesser extend, American liberal idiots have created the foundations for another Jewish holocaust.   And that is now why we once again are seeing a diaspora of Jews out of Europe.   They again see the writing on the walls.   For to rise up and stand against anti-Semitism is to inflame the radical bigotry and hatred of a large percentage of Europe’s anti-Semitic Muslim and liberal populations.   If radical Islam would launch an all-out attack on Israel, as just one example, what would or could Europe do to come to the aid of the rights of Jews without confronting the demons it has created in its own societies by being tolerant of ignorance and violence?  Nothing.   Are we on the verge of a global war between the dark forces of radical Islam and the power of the state?   Who knows.  But amongst the many issues facing humanity, one is radical Islam and its use of state violence to perpetuate and expand itself.   This is just another example that exposes the violence of hierarchy, class and the state as illegitimate.   And the dumbing-down of humanity that state liberalism creates.  This will all become much more clear in my upcoming post.

A Calvin Fairy Tale From Beppe Grillo

I’m still thinking about how to structure my next post.  I’ve realized it could become a monster and I actually have to think about how to organize it rather than just a stream of conscious keyboard hacking effort.  In the mean time, Grillo’s remarks tie directly into my next post.  That is, esoteric factors behind how and why the entire world is on the edge of collapse. 

Grillo is one name that has become famous globally in this nameless, faceless global movement to throw off the shackles of artificial state-created human misery.  Frankly, I suspect it will remain nameless and faceless as people awaken to the reality that what humanity needs is not another self-appointed savior but a restoration of their own power or the savior within.  That is, enlightenment.   Grillo’s message at the end of 2014 includes a Calvin fairy tale.  (The video is in Italian but the translated script is in English.)  How true and timeless is tale?   When reading Grillo’s tale, it’s worth considering how everyone in this world is stealing from everyone else.   That the global economy is one big grifter’s confidence game.   And how state-created and enforced class and hierarchy have enslaved humanity to do the stealing them.   As I’ve noted ad nauseam on here, about one in ten jobs in this nation contribute to wealth-creation.  The other nine out of ten jobs consume wealth.  Or, put another way, are simply methods used to transfer wealth from the poor or the working-class stiff to the rich.   Some of those wealth-consuming  jobs may be chosen by society if they were educated on reality and actually had a democratic choice.  Or not.   Most would almost certainly be classified as “or not”.

Can you count how many ways this story applies to the world today?  Corporations can only exist in perpetuity through rent extraction.  Renter capitalism is a looting scheme.  Class and hierarchy of capitalism is a looting scheme.  The state is a looting scheme.  Monarchies are a looting scheme.  Private, for-profit banks are looting schemes.  Standing armies are looting schemes.   The military-industrial complex is a looting scheme.  The European Union is a looting scheme.  Free trade agreements are looting schemes.  The medical industrial complex is a looting scheme.  The industrial food complex is a looting scheme.   Wall Street is a looting scheme.    Hedge funds are looting schemes.  The investor class is a looting scheme.  Communism is a looting scheme.  Political parties are looting schemes. OPEC  is a looting scheme.  Corporation personhood is a looting scheme.  Private money creation is a looting scheme.  Gold money is a looting scheme.  Globalization is a looting scheme.   Central banks are a looting scheme.  Modern-day universities are a looting scheme.  Non-living wages and economic slavery are looting schemes.  Destroying economic determinism is a looting scheme.  An all-powerful central state is a looting scheme.   Welfare or miniscule state handouts aka socializing capitalism’s losses are looting schemes.    That’s enough for now.

A Holiday Post: Part One, December As A Month Glorifying The Corporate State’s Violence

“What is the chief end of man?--to get rich. In what way?--dishonestly if we can; honestly if we must. Who is God, the one only and true? Money is God. Gold and Greenbacks and Stock--father, son, and the ghost of same--three persons in one; these are the true and only God, mighty and supreme.” – Mark Twain, The Revised Catechism.  Or, maybe it should have been the only real Catechism in capitalist nations.

I was planning to put up a holiday post delving further into the esoteric factors shaping the world today.   Included in that would be an amalgam of remarks from may of my posts over the years.  That includes my October 2013 good-vs-evil-in-late-Scorpio turn-date post, my post on the Roman Emperor as the anti-Christ and the state as the antithesis of Godliness, my 2011 holiday post titled  The Journey Of Becoming I Am and a smattering from quite a few others on the disconnected ego.   I’ll include the link to The Journey Of Becoming I Am as an introduction to the next post.  But, that will have to wait for a week or two as I haven’t had enough time to finish it.  I suppose rather than a holiday post, I may pen it as a new year’s post. 

We are living through a time of great violence and moral bankruptcy around the world.  These dynamics are intertwined.  One cannot exist without the other.  Much of that violence is driven by self-imposed ignorance.   It seems that the world is in a trance but is now slowly but surely awakening from it.   And no one is more entranced or ignorant than the people who are responsible for keeping this system functioning.  Be that politicians, corporate executives, the military-industrial complex, mainstream religious institutions,  the educational and university system and the glue that holds it all together, standing armies, law enforcement and the national security state.  Our world is one that has become wildly dumbed-down by these institutions of the ego.   Humanity is clearly devolving under the duress of the state.  But the reality is everything is an illusory bubble that papers over the thin veneer of our perceptions and associated beliefs.  That veneer is now starting to expose itself as nothing more than lies created by the disconnected ego.

I have written ad nauseam about the state on here over the last nine years.  But I certainly have ratcheted up those writings in the last few years.   There is a reason for doing so.  While just about no one is even considering it, again because of their own fear-driven state of mind that keeps them from considering such truths, the more reality exposes itself, the more one must question whether we are living through the end times of the state.   This could come in waves or all at once.  But, in many regards, witnessing the Soviet Union collapse into thirteen smaller states and other movements around the world may simply have been an early phase of the ultimate failure of the state.  We definitely are living through the end times of massive state power grabs and state liberalism.  Which plays directly into my long-time remarks that both the Republican and Democratic Parties in the U.S. are going to collapse.  Both are predatory, hierarchical systems of control that only exist through the violence afforded by state liberalism.  The megalomania of the finger-wagging political hypocrites is phenomenal.  Every time I see a politician open their mouth, regardless of what country or what party affiliation, it almost certainly involves some kind of hypocrisy and violence on a nearly unimaginable scale.  Now, to be human is to be a hypocrite.  But, the politician takes it to an art form by using the violence of the state to enforce that hypocrisy.      

Let me share one example of violence that has become so entrenched into the propaganda entrancing the human psyche. Large swaths of the population glorify it thus creating their own self-inflicted misery by embracing the violence of their oppressors.    Especially people who self-identify as conservatives or Republicans.  That is, corporate capitalism, the institution we waged our Revolutionary War to rid ourselves of.  This dynamic is particularly relevant in the month of December --

Most in the “civilized” world (hahaha) goes to work every day in a hierarchical organization and/or an organization defined by an intent of profit or power or both.  In other words, control structures that are creations of the ego or the self.   The CEO as a king, the board of directors as his court or advisors, the sales executive as the general, the salespersons as the warriors, the engineers and laborers as the weapons makers or those responsible for producing the weapons battle will be waged with, (debt, food, autos, pharma drugs, interest, missiles, guns, whatever) the HR department as the recruiters or slave traders needed to fill the battle ranks or fill the body bags (layoffs) for the king when battles (sales) are lost, advertisers create the propaganda necessary to defeat the enemy and win the war.   Not only does the state benefit from the business of war, but it also benefits from the war of business.  Corporate capitalism is a form of control (violence) waged against humanity.  Yet, it requires docile acceptance of its propaganda to actually exist.  How again is subjugating yourself to corporate hierarchy and those who seek power over your divinity a manifestation of self-rule or democracy?  Come again?

Although we are most often ignorant to it, when we go to work every day the constructs of hierarchy, profit and power guarantee that we are perpetrators of violence.  And, at the same time, violence is perpetrated against us.  That violence is most often emotional or spiritual or outside of our view.  And that violence we perpetrate could be against our work peers, against those we “manage” at work, against those who manage us, against other companies we battle with, against the poor, against the planet,  against exploited “consumers”, against democracy or countless other examples.  And, what is even more sinister is that we often perpetrate that violence against ourselves.  Ignorantly, of course.  The more violent we are with ourselves, the more we become habituated to accepting the cruelty and evil violence perpetrated against others.   The more we become Godless.  There are compelling reasons to consider that the world has never seen such organized, universal violence against the human psyche and all life. 

December is a month uniquely glorifying that corporate violence through the propagandized mantra of consumerism.  In the endless power grabs by the state, we clearly see vacuousness and meaninglessness has been taken to an art form by the corporate state.  People from around the world with differing traditions, generally tend to have a holiday around the winter solstice.  Those traditions have been obliterated by turning December into a month where “citizens” of the state, aka the exploited and preyed upon, are supposed to shop till they drop.   I hear repeatedly how December has turned into a depressing and stressful time of year for countless people.  Corporate capitalism plays no small role in that dynamic.   Corporate capitalism and the state are the reason for this dynamic through a multitude of exploitative forms of violence.   A time of fellowship and connection to all life has been turned into a time of year where most are expected to go into debt to buy more useless, effing junk to maintain corporate power.  Why?  Because our masters have told us this is our lot in life.

In the last year I accidently found myself stumbling upon the Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index.   Today it is timely to provide a link to the index given December’s rise as the month of violent overconsumption created by corporate capitalism’s violent overproduction.  We work much longer hours than people who lived thousands of years ago and that is no coincidence.  You work to overproduce that which the predatory ruling class wishes to overconsume.   Corporate capitalism has never, ever, remotely provided for the needs of humanity throughout its entire history.   It provides for the pedantic, inane, vacuous wants of class and hierarchy.  It should be no surprise this index originates in the shithole of class and hierarchical violence, Britain, and Europe at large, that has infected America.   While class and hierarchy amuse themselves to death with their massive overconsumption, we see a sign of the times in the value of their luxury purchases skyrocketing.  This is a sign of a dying monetary (and by extension banking) and economic system.   The lack of demand for capital as capitalism deflates around the globe, has created a massive, useless wall of money that is lining the pockets of those who are privileged by state violence.  And they are funneling massive sums of money into the attachment of vanity and “stuff” they worship.   And as the useless eaters that our masters are, they amuse themselves to death with all of that money they stole from democracy and humanity.   I have already highlighted the massive bubble in London real estate on here.  To go with it, this index highlights the massive bubble in alternative “investments” that are skyrocketing due to the collapse in money and economics.  The ruling aristocracy’s behavior is eerily familiar.  Let them eat cake.   

Happy Holidays.  Embrace your own slavery and victimization.  Be sure to shop till you drop.

Russia’s Crisis: Virtuous Currencies, Virtuous Economies And Virtuous Nations Don’t Collapse

Ruble

I’m continuing the interruption of my regular posts because of the Russian ruble crisis.  We may be witnessing the most important event in the global economy in the last three or four decades.   Far more important than 2008.  We don’t yet see the importance of this but we will at some point.   It is exposing a systemic violence and fraud that has been building for decades.  That is, the power grabs of the state which include the monster they have created called globalization.   At some point, with enough currencies  around the world experiencing major crises, we could see a massive tipping point for this trade settlement system or worse, a global rout  of corporations (capitalism), nations, the energy complex, financial systems, gold, currencies and the like.   Of course, that has been a long-time theme on here.  Right now the status quo appears  very ignorant to the consequences of what is happening.  Enlightenment is a painful and invasive process.

I have written on here for the better part of a decade that the dollar was putting in a major low.  Over that time I have mocked supermodels (demanding payments in euros right before the euro crashed) , financial “experts” and many in between who have in some way or another been screaming about a dollar crash.    Being a dollar bull for the last decade has been a very lonely position.   I wrote numerous times over the years that the dollar would eventually rise violently.  The dollar is now at ten year highs.  And, the chart of the Russian ruble against the U.S. dollar above is a telling picture.   If you flip the chart upside down, the dollar is rising violently.   The Chinese yuan is going to experience the same fate without some massive event to stop it.  I don’t know what that could be since the yuan’s fate was sealed long ago but I remain open to that which I might have missed.   But the yuan is even more of a worthless currency than the ruble.   Don’t kid yourself with the “experts” who have also been babbling that the yuan is the new reserve currency.   Or that the yuan backed by gold can take down the dollar.   They have no idea what they are talking about.  I’ll eventually get to that and show you how ludicrous that belief system is.  China’s economy is the biggest mess the world has ever seen.  The communists are doing everything they can to stop that mess from being exposed and metastasizing.   There is literally nothing the communist central planners can do but make the ultimate crisis larger.   Ain’t no one with half a brain that wants to own yuan today let alone as more and more of reality exposes itself.  Even the Chinese aristocracy is running out of yuan at a feverish pace to leave behind the massive fraud they have created.    What do you think is going to happen when China’s economy experiences its “oil” event as Russia is?   The foreign exchange market is going to demand not just six yuan for every dollar as is the case today but twenty or thirty or fifty or more yuan when the shit hits the fan.   There could even be the possibility that no one wants to own yuan no matter what the exchange rate.  That is, unless China turns over its gold to foreign exchange markets as a payment for the massive risk of owning any yuan.

How many of those brilliant, credentialed experts told us over the years the dollar was going to collapse?  The best education money could buy.  Financial wizards and economic gurus.  Even some former U.S. Treasury officials made that claim.  Yawn.  And here is this hick blogging in his underwear once again proving the ignorance of those who control the microphone.  That includes the “educated” faux intellectuals in the world.   We don’t live in a merit-driven society.  We live in a society where ignorance rules.  Which, by the way, is the reason it is collapsing.   Because ignorance has subverted truth for a long, long time.   Both merit and truth are suppressed by the ignorance that controls the world economy and state institutions.   Merit and truth are a threat to bureaucracy and the self-appointed authority that seeks to control it.  And seeks to control humanity in the process.  When the level of that ignorance and associated incompetence of state actors reveals itself, it will be unlike anything humanity has ever witnessed. 

Monday the ruble was down a staggering 13%.    In one day.  So, after hours Russia raised interest rates to 17% in an attempt to stop the slide.  Paying 17% in a year isn’t going to offset a 13% currency decline in a single day.    It would take about a 15,000% interest rate hike to stop that decline.    Alternatively, Russia could buy rubles and sell foreign currencies to prop up their currency, but that would lead to an even greater collapse as they burned through their foreign currency reserves.   At that point Russia will have to intentionally collapse its currency through devaluation or default.   Just like 1998.   I wrote these exact words years ago as it pertains to Russia, China and the BRICs.  This isn’t another Black Swan.  All of this was easily predictable.   I know because it was predicted on here by a grunt.  

The 2008 collapse, the oil collapse and the ruble collapse were all predicted on this blog.  All long before they happened.  These are not Black Swans.   They are easily predictable.  The problem is we have ignorance that rules our society and we have become entranced by their babbling bullshit as credentialed experts with long titles, endless certifications and long-winded educational accomplishments.  All worthless because they all serve control systems that subvert truth.   The Russian central bank just said they never could have imagined what is happening today.   As Ace Ventura eloquently noted, “Alrighty then!”.   I rest my case.  We would be in better hands with Ace at the helm.

Let me just highlight a handful of long-time themes on here that are revealing themselves with this Russian crisis.  Most of these themes have been in play for a long, long time on here. 

  1. BRICs nations are going to experience massive busts
  2. The biggest crises on the back end of this mess will be outside of the US
  3. The dollar will rise violently
  4. Oil will collapse.  Possibly to $10
  5. China and Russia will eventually become net sellers of gold as their currencies implode (being reported today)
  6. Gold will collapse
  7. We are going to experience a global trade settlement crisis (This isn’t it.  Although it is the start of it.)
  8. Central banking may be in its final throws before its final collapse
  9. Corporate capitalism may be in its final throws
  10. Globalization is toast
  11. States around the world could collapse and the concept of the state could be under substantial threat of extinction

Very few people actually understand what is going on.  I can appreciate why the average person doesn’t understand.   It has nothing to do with intelligence.  They are too busy trying to stay alive or they have been kept ignorant by our masters.   Ignorant is not a sign of intelligence.  We are all ignorant to some degree.   Which is the only way state actors can maintain their authoritarian control.  I’ll tell you in excruciating detail at some point just about everything I have written and how I was able to anticipate all of this.   It’s not rocket science but I clearly didn’t listen to the blathering idiots on Wall Street or in Washington.  But for now it’s simply important to realize this global system of rot is unwinding.    That rot is in Russia, China, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Europe, Canada, the U.S., Japan and on and on and on. 

The question remains is what is Russia going to do now?   Are they going to eventually witness 50-100% inflation?  An economy in complete collapse?   Are they going to sit back and watch their government once again collapse?   And Putin collapse with it?   Or are they going to force a crisis by employing their gold reserves or some other substantial response?   Putin the strong man has so far had a very weak response.   Russia’s central bank just announced their plan of attack to stop this crisis and it is nothing short of a failure.  I know what Russia must do to stabilize their financial system and their economy but will they actually do it?  And, if so, what methods will they employ.  The outcome is in doubt only because the steps necessary to stabilize their currency and their financial system will mean state actors must admit to their fraud, give up control and deal with the consequences.   What do you think the chances of that happening are?  Yeah, that’s right.

So, in lieu of that, what we can expect are measures involving state violence.  The only question remains if that violence will be directed outward, inward on its citizens or both.

Judge Anthony Napolitano: The CIA And America’s War Criminals?

This video and story are worthy of another unexpected post.  Do we now know why Homeland Security (the NSA) and the CIA are at this very moment attempting to purge evidence of the state’s criminal behavior as linked to a handful of posts ago?   Was the imminent release of this CIA torture report known in Washington circles and that is their reason for taking such action?  Sure it was known.   The dots are easily connected with little effort as to why this attempted purge is now underway. 

People are going to start to realize if we have trials in this nation on the topic of crimes against humanity or treason, they will have to be extra-judicial tribunals.  That because our judicial system is complicit in state behavior and trying war crimes, high crimes and misdemeanors  or crimes against humanity within our court system would be a laughable mockery of kangaroo court injustice.   Is the state going to convict itself of its own behavior?   Our mockery of a legal system, when it applies to class and state actor privilege, has endorsed this criminal behavior in many rulings.   We could have judges and the legal system itself on trial.   The only method through which justice could ever be served would be extra-judicial tribunals.

I doubt there is any way to put the genie back in the bottle now that this report has been released.   The brutality of CIA behavior is really no different than Imperial Japan or Nazi Germany.   Many of the same tactics were used.  Just the latest genie that has gotten out of the bottle.  We are never going back to this socioeconomic system and the political system that props it up is teetering on stilts of massive immorality and Godlessness.  

I find it representative of the many useful idiots that we call mainstream journalists that the Fox News reporter interviewing Napolitano blurts out repeatedly that no laws were broken.   But I will give them kudos for airing Napolitano’s truthfulness in the face of the reporter’s willful ignorance.   That the politicians in the White House had their lackey lawyers conjure up secret  interpretations of laws to rationalize criminal behavior, and Congress willfully played stupid and turned a blind eye to criminal behavior of our government means what?   It means Diane Feinstein, the chair of the committee releasing this report is almost certainly culpable and almost certainly has an ulterior motive that in some way involves covering her own ass.   Feinstein was one of the war mongers leading the charge up until recently.  Playing stupid now doesn’t work. 

This is really just the tip of the iceberg.  The United States socioeconomic and political systems are, in their own right, as rotten as any in history.   The fish rots from the head first.  It is the ruling political, military, university and capitalist aristocracy, with the “moral” support of immoral mainstream hierarchical religious “leaders” who all conspired to create the misery, fraud, corruption, exploitation, predation and victimization we see today.   Don’t kid yourself about the virtues of modern-day, state-friendly religion.  A substantial number of churches and religions in the U.S. have adopted and supported the capitalist state’s immorality.  

Ultimately, capitalism is a system of state violence that relies on enslaving society to competition to enrich the ruling capitalist and state-enforced classes.   That competition guarantees through a maturity cycle of economics that there are fewer and fewer winners.  And those winners are almost never  the most meritorious in any way.  They are almost always the most ruthless and brutal cretins who are most willing to smash the face of their fellow man in the name of winning socioeconomic status.  Ambition, so embraced and glorified by this system, is a massive cruelty that involves getting ahead of others by conforming to and pleasing state class and hierarchy.   This socioeconomic control system ensures that the most ruthless and evil people in any capitalist society ultimately wind up as its “leaders”.  And, because ultimately these people care only about winning (smashing the face of their fellow man to rise to the top of hierarchy and class) and are consumed by the disconnected ego, and really only have a primary skill of cunning, brutality and ruthlessness,  they must ensure they continuously rig the rules so that they continue win.  This because their lackluster, pathological, control-driven abilities would otherwise cement their failure.   And, because of that, we end up with worthless and even criminal laws that protect the class-based, capitalist rule of man.  Sort of a guaranteed survival of the most pathological and ultimately a society that is based purely on worshiping the evils of money, greed, selfishness, vanity, emotional and intellectual vacuousness and the like.   That is why this and every state has nothing left of democracy and the world is ruled by a very extreme global pathology of evil.   

None of these crimes and many more could be committed without the consent of the political, military (standing army), university, corporate and religious authority figures in this nation.   They are the tyrants who enforce this control system.   In fact, it is arguable that the corporate crimes of capitalism are even greater than the political and state crimes perpetuated by the CIA, NSA and politicians.   Not just of the U.S. either.  This is a global state phenomena.    The argument our state oppressors use to rationalize their evildoing - that they are protecting us from bad people abroad - is a timeless manipulation that has been well understood by seekers of truth for thousands of years.  

“When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty and there is nothing to fear from them, then he is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader.” – Plato

The bad people we need protection from are right here at home.  They are the ones who have created 25% unemployment and 70% underemployment (wage slavery), enslaved large swaths of the population to dehumanizing subsistence state handouts, subjugated the masses to Wall Street debt slavery, created a tyrannical military-industrial complex that endlessly wages war while denying our citizens their own freedoms by sucking up more and more money and economic control, created unconstitutionally spying on Americans, poisoned our food, poisoned our water, enforced running torture and illegal detention camps, enslaved us to private money creation and private banking, created a medical industrial complex enslaving people to legalized drug addiction and often worse, poisoned our minds with endless propaganda and on and on and on.   What makes the U.S. stand out from the world is its unparalleled and unprecedented global power granted by corporate capitalist empire and the degree of pathologically arrogant megalomania that is needed to enforce such abusive state power.

Timely Rantings On CIA Torture, China, Russia, The Dollar, Gold And Oil

I was planning only one more post this month, but given the incredibly profound dynamics unfolding around long-time themes on here, I thought I would highlight some of them in an interim post.   Below is a set of related, unrelated and inter-related incoherent ramblings on a multitude of timely topics.

Headlines used as a basis for my ramblings below.

China turns away from the dollar

China clings to its socialist past.  China is still an inept buffoon state controlled by communist bureaucrats.

China’s crisis IS going to get a whole lot worse.  This is a look at reality rather than American capitalist-created propaganda about the virtues of capitalist China.  It is a cesspool of fraud, rot, corruption and the abject misery of state communism.  If you still believe China is anything other than a fraudulent Ponzi scheme, you owe it to yourself to read this.

Russia unveils ruble-based trade settlement system.  Russia is at an inflection point.  It will either yield to the pressure of empire or find an alternative, yet painful means to escape its clutches.

Russian exporter currency plan may signal capital controls.  Capital controls certainly are a rising trend that is clearly a predictable result of global capitalism.

American firms raise money from rich Chinese capitalists.  I want to know how this much money can escape a country without a convertible currency and with strict limits on how much money individuals can convert to other currencies while leaving the country.   Actually, it’s quite a common example of the massive fraud the ruling class in China is and has perpetuated on their own nation.  Remember a few years ago when the premiere of China’s communist party was found to have a billion dollar offshore account?   This is simply another form of aristocratic state violence meant to loot the people of China.  There will be hell to pay for this.  A long time theme on here is China is likely headed for revolution or war, be it economic or military or both, with the west.  At this point in time, I would be more inclined to say the masses are headed for revolution against their communist capitalist oppressors. 

OPEC sees demand drop to a 12 year low.  By the time this is all said and done, we could easily see demand fall to decades-long lows.  There is so much useless waste and slack in this global economic system that is going to disappear through the force of nature.

For CIA truth was an existential threat

What we are witnessing around the world are massive power grabs by the state.    This is consistent with a theme on here that the control systems of corporate capitalism and the state require a greater and greater application of control to contradict their inherent instabilities.  The state may believe these power or control grabs are legitimate or in response to threats perpetuated against them, but one thing is very clear.  These are not power grabs on behalf of restoring power to humanity.  They are power grabs meant to enrich or perpetuate the state.    The responses to U.S. dollar hegemony are purely power grabs by other state actors.   This contention between states is consistent with a long-time theme on here that we were entering a war cycle.  And how accurate that theme has been as greater and greater violence has continued to unfold over the last handful of years.  Whether we see all-out global war is another issue.   I don’t see any evidence that an all-out war is a guaranteed outcome.   If state actors have their way, that remains a distinct possibility.  If humanity wins their battle with the state, it will not happen.  All of this violence is part of the contradictory pathology of state actors to perpetuate their own control at any cost.  It is contradictory because those power grabs are at the expense of humanity that the state is supposedly there to protect.   In other words, we are being exposed to the reality that the state is really nothing more than a protection racket – the state itself is the source of violence that it offers to protect humanity from.   In order to appreciate what is really happening today, it is very important for people to understand this.

(I keep harping on the point to follow in this paragraph for a reason.  That reason will become self-evident soon enough.  If you doubt any of this today, the day will come when you will look upon the world and wonder why you doubted the intent of your oppressor without anyone needing to remind you of anything.)  A major point of this protection racket dynamic is that other states that seek to end U.S. dollar empire do not do so out of virtue.  They do so because they want some of that good ole-fashioned American home cooking.  They want what the U.S. has.  That is, power, and more of it.   The ego’s primary intent is control and the state is an institution of the ego.    China, as an example, is following the same historical mercantilist practices of Europe and the U.S. in that grab for more power.  Remember, the barbarians that overthrew the Roman Empire didn’t do so out of virtue or out of its tyranny.  When they sacked Rome, they first looted it of its wealth.  Then they became the ruling class of plunderers and looters in Rome itself.   They became Romans.  China and Russia have dreams about returning their states to prior powerful glory.  Leaders in both countries have  clearly remarked of this objective and both state’s leaders are guilty of stoking fear-driven nationalism over and over again.  It has nothing to do with empowering their people or democracy.  It has everything to do with control.  The Chinese and Russian bureaucrat is no different than the American bureaucrat or the German bureaucrat.  All bureaucrats seek a primary intent of control for their own personal benefit and they use the state and its many institutions, including communism, socialism and capitalism, as tools to accomplish this.   Evil seeks power.  The organizational constructs of the state are the perfect institutions of the ego to wield that power.  The level of cruelty, corruption and poverty around the world, including in China and Russia, is just as great as the U.S. 

December continues the exposure of bizarro state behavior.  Russian central bankers continue to raise rates to stop capital flight and a currency collapse.  So far it isn’t working.  What comes next?  Will Russia simply allow the dollar-ruble relationship to collapse as I wrote could happen some time ago?   They are in a unique situation where that may be a possibility.  Or, if raising rates doesn’t stop the slide of private capital out of their economy, there really are only two options I am aware of.  One, employ gold on behalf of the ruble to bring confidence to the global, predatory private capital machine, or two, create their own internal capital.   I consider the latter to be low odds for the very reason the state exists in the first place.   As noted in prior posts, Russia has certainly seen how Iran has faired after being in a similar situation.  Iran saw massive inflation as their currency collapsed.  Iranian dollar reserves in short supply were then directed by a domestic currency board to ensure basic necessities were purchased first.  Iran has stabilized to some degree (before the collapse in oil) and seemingly is operating under a plan of becoming more economically self-reliant in order to ameliorate U.S. and European financial terrorism against the country. (I am not endorsing theocratic Iran as a legitimate state in this remark.)  Russia has an Iranian roadmap to follow if they so choose.   China has a substantially more difficult road in getting out from under the dollar being so reliant on private western capital. 

If these states fail in their efforts, and the U.S. dollar empire holds against external threats, these states will soon become net sellers of gold as noted on here many times.   We appear to finally be entering a very, very volatile period in the global trade settlement system.  I have written for the better part of the past decade that this was coming and it seems we are now finally here.   Now, as a part of that, gold is likely at or nearing a major inflection point too.  That next move could either be another collapse or a major move higher.  I suspect that move will be driven by the state.  But, there is a high likelihood of a gold squeeze coming.  Will that squeeze be for gold buyers or gold sellers?     Ultimately, none of this changes my original outcomes that gold will eventually collapse just as oil will.   China and Russia are broke and that means their demand for gold will eventually diminish, if not go to zero or even negative (net sellers).   In other words, their ability to create paper wealth needed to buy gold is getting closer and closer to an inflection point. 

The possibility does exist that a tipping point in the global trade settlement system can occur with a small fraction of global trade being settled beyond dollars.   But I remain dubious of this given how the world economy works.  There is no doubt that the dollar fealty or homage trade to the world’s neoliberal lord, the United States, by its vassal capitalist states is living on borrowed time.  Mostly because corrupt vassal states around the world are trying to gain greater control before their ineptitude and fraud leads to their own collapse.  Regardless of how it happens, it is almost certainly going to happen that we will see a trade settlement crisis.   And it will likely happen very rapidly once it metastasizes.    Unlike popular opinion with people who are driven by their emotions that includes a desire to see the dollar collapse confusing their ability to analysis the facts, the dollar does not need to collapse to have a global currency crisis.  And, that is born out that the mainstream thought that has expected a dollar collapse, is now looking at the highest dollar value in ten years.   That too was foretold of on here.  Remember, a long-time theme on here is that the U.S. empire will disappear by 2022.   The only question is how.   That doesn’t necessarily mean the dollar will lose its reserve status, per se although that is a distinct possibility.   Regardless of whether the world no longer has a concept of a reserve currency or whether it is through some other dynamic, we will have to wait and see.  But, as I noted on here in past posts, if the global economy is crashing, and that includes currencies crashing against the dollar, and thus, demand for international trade, be it in dollars, gold, yuan, rubles or bubble gum wrappers, falters, then effectively U.S. empire will experience some degree of substantial systemic failure.    This is a major difference with economic empire not shared by past examples of outright human subjugation by violent force of arms that we saw in the British and Roman Empires.   This empire requires the acceptance of dollars.  If the world no longer accepts dollars because it is collapsing, the macro outcome it creates in many ways is really no different than the dollar itself collapsing. 

All manipulation aside, and the entire world is manipulated by the state and its creations, oil is crashing because demand is crashing.   That demand is both financial and economic.  Demand for OPEC oil is at 12 year lows.  Those are their numbers.  That is because the global economy is crashing in spite of tens and tens and tens of failed central banker money printing in every capitalist nation on earth.   Don’t kid yourself that this is part of some master conspiracy led by the Saudis.  The Saudis are not going to cut their production if other OPEC nations don’t cut.  It may be a game of chicken right now but OPEC is damned if they do and damned if they don’t.  Cutting production will cut off the flow of much-needed dollars on a hope and a prayer that prices will rise.  Not cutting off production will produce a similar paradox.   I wrote half a dozen years ago this exact dynamic would come to pass and we are here.   OPEC lives and dies based on the failing global capitalist overproduction Ponzi scheme that is now in systemic failure.   History CLEARLY tells us that OPEC nations have always cheated on production quotas in order to maximize their own self-interested profit.  Even when prices are imploding.  Or, maybe I should say, especially when prices are imploding.  OPEC’s oligarchy is a paper tiger.  They have ZERO power over the price of oil.  It is an illusion that oil fiefdoms and their self-interested state actors believe.  That illusion is now shattering.  We will eventually see oil retest the 2008 collapse lows.  That may not be for a while or it may happen as early as next year.  I don’t know.  But the pricing action essentially guarantees a retest.  

Below is a three year chart of the Shanghai Composite Index.  In the last month alone we have seen this index roar higher by 30%.   In the last six months it is up over 50%.  An amazing parabolic rise.  Similar to the asset bubbles in the U.S., I consider this a portent of collapse.  Without convertibility, except through corruption afforded to the ruling class, endless yuan money printing has created a wall of useless money.  The capital bubble in China is collapsing and now the consumption bubble in China is collapsing.  Where is all of that useless money to go?  Just like in the U.S., where the same dynamic exists, it is headed into renter capitalist financial speculation.   Of course, this could all be helped along by the communists manipulating their stock market.

SSEC

Finally, we have the announcement of the CIA torture report from Congress.  I really want to know what the political angle is for releasing this report.  There certainly is one after a decade of secrecy on the topic.  I could imagine it is the political trouncing the Democrats just took.  A calculated risk attempting to turn citizens against Republicans?  But it was these same Democrats that turned a blind eye to the criminal actions of the CIA.  And, let’s be clear.  It is clearly criminal and deserving of a tribunal in The Hague.  Or, a similar type of tribunal in the U.S.   Anyone who states that they support this type of violence against any human being, especially without due process, regardless of their suspected crimes, is operating from a place where God does not exist.   It’s just that simple.  These are not the actions of a free mind, and a free people.  These are the actions of evil.  The cruelty of the comments section in the first two links at The Hill above are telling.   Godlessness is not just the domain of class and hierarchy but those who have outsourced their own divinity to class and hierarchy by worshiping the state.

Before all of the insanity in this world was exposed, I noted quite a few times that tribunals could be coming to the U.S.   At the time, that seemed absurd but it clearly is not.  Our government is completely out of control.   Patton’s famous quote calling Hitler a paper-hanging son of a bitch applies to the paper shredding son of a bitches in Washington.  The CIA and NSA are trying to rid themselves of electronic and paper records of their crimes as I type this.   Just as the paper shredding of the Nazi war machine and its endless atrocities when they knew they were eventually going to get caught.  As noted in a recent post, both the CIA and Homeland Security are attempting to destroy or “shred” records associated with their wrongdoing with the assistance of Congress and the White House.
