So while the past week has been chalk full of excitement what really struck me and stuck with me from this past week is the ubiquity of the bullshit that floods our lives. I mean it. If we were to step back outside the constant chatter, conjecture, opinion, speculation and noise in general what we see is pure unadulterated bullshit. For at least the past 7 years we’ve heard nothing but talk of signs of something better just around the corner. We hear growth is coming. Wage growth could soon drive inflation given the latest improvement in unemployment. We are now at full employment, just don’t look at labour participation rate or U6. GDP is growing via massive inventory and debt builds but don’t look at GDI. But as long as everyone keeps talking and repeats and repeats the story of improvement being just so very close we can taste it well then maybe just maybe we will get there before the minions recognize the world is collapsing at an alarming rate.
But it’s not just the economic indicators that have lost their way. The totality of society has become a fucking train wreck. Politicians are destroying the world. They have sold humanity out to a small group of psychopathic narcissists who are willing to maim, lie, cheat and murder to extort wealth and power. We have a global media network now that facilitates the corruption and thus the oppression of the world’s inhabitants. Together they have turned the human spirit, which is naturally a loving and kind force, into something that iterates fear, anger, intolerance, vengeance, and hate like at no other time. Hell I expect that 90% of people around the world have lost track of who is fighting who and where. All we know is that ‘they’, being anyone our politicians tell us is they, want to hurt us and it is our patriotic duty to kill them before they do us and at any cost. But don’t worry because for just another $100B we will make sure you are safe. Oh and we’ll have to withdraw all those guarantees of freedom whose name we fight in.
But do they want to hurt us? Do they want to hurt us? Or have they been goaded into believing there is a hatred between us by the actions of those who speak and act on our behalf? Money. As the old adage goes, it all comes down to money. Money runs the world. It is the objective of those that control it and it is the conduit to harnessing the power that ensures it multiplies. Grandpa Rothschild is famously quoted as stating, “give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws”. And that really sums up our modern world. Those who have and control money control and direct the policies to ensure the world is chaotic and ugly place. Because chaos and terror ensures the humanity is weakened. And that means a week human spirit. For when the human spirit is strong the politicians lack the power so desperately sought by those with money.
