A crime is being committed on an ongoing basis, all across the world, free and unfree. It is a crime of commission and omission, and arguably the most serious in either category that has ever been perpetrated. We are facing multiple crises but our governments tell us only about crises that are not crises, or at least not crises that involve us, as opposed to affecting us. Effusing moral blackmail in all directions, they shruggingly point towards the war that they started with the precise intention of creating an alibi for themselves, so as to avoid the wrath of their peoples and the punishment that ought properly to await them.
In Ireland, three months ago, the ‘crisis’ that had allegedly assailed us for two years — the ‘crisis’ of a ‘deadly’ disease — evaporated overnight to be replaced by the ‘crisis’ of a war in a country nearly 2,500 miles away. At first sight, it seemed unlikely that such a conflict might affect us in any substantial way, but immediately our Government announced that it would be taking an unlimited number of refugees from the affected country, guesstimated at 200,000 — into a country whose government has for the past decade declared itself perplexed and powerless in the face of a housing shortage affecting 10,000 of its own citizens. Instantly, those who thought that a war in Ukraine was none of our business were ‘proved wrong.’
We who have been seeking to confront the attempted destruction of our lives and societies occurring over the past two years have many times speculated as to whether the dominant note of the political responses might more correctly be ascribed to stupidity or to wickedness. The jury remains out. Stupidity, as we have noted, is no excuse, especially considering that these politicians have been proactive in pushing potential lethal poison serums and preventing people exercising fundamental freedoms on foot of a refusal to accept them. These are not victimless inanities. There must, we have ruminated, be some legal limit on the stupidity of people who exercise public power, especially when that stupidity leads to loss of life or serious injury, which in this case is most certainly the case: a dramatic uptick in working-age mortality in multiple countries of 40 per cent and more.
Many times we have noted prosecutions and convictions — sometimes followed by lengthy prison sentences — of such as train drivers and ships captains who have been in charge of vehicles which became involved in accidents that resulted in death or injury; generally they are charged with something like negligence or reckless injury. Regardless of the intelligence of those implicated, or their provable scale of knowledge of what they have been involved in, analogous charges are surely relevant to the actions of multiple politicians, scientists, doctors, judges, journalists and police officers, whose actions have prolonged and exacerbated the criminality, cruelty and misery of the past two years.
Whether people are aware of this or not — and many, due to the criminality of the legacy media, are not so aware — we now face perhaps the greatest calamity faced by the world for three-quarters of a century, at least. Within a year — probably much sooner — our economies, monetary systems and currencies will experience outright collapse; hyperinflation (already in train) will reach Zimbabwean levels throughout the formerly civilised world, which will be followed by unprecedented levels of stagflation (a combination of inflation and recession, soon sliding into outright depression), which will be accompanied by shortages of the most essential provisions for human survival, i.e. food and fuel, resulting in famine and other extreme hardships, which in turn will lead to chaos and societal breakdown, which we can expect to be met by a ramping up of the totalitarian responses the morally bankrupt ‘authorities’ of our countries have been road-testing for precisely this purpose over the past 25 months.
It is exceedingly likely that, in addition to the risks of hyperinflation, within a few months, the chief currencies of the free world will, without exception, become subject to outright collapse, which means that the savings of citizens will become worthless. This will affect virtually all existing currencies, including the dollar, the pound sterling and the euro. In the unlikely event that anything remains in the wake of this meltdown, this is likely to be subject to governmental ‘bail-ins,’ which is to say that any remaining financial assets will be liable to partial or total confiscation. A global digital currency is planned but, leaving aside the myriad other problems and dangers arising from this, the chances of any future compensation of citizens under such a system are unpromising.
Right now, it is as though nothing like this could possibly be imminent, since it is receiving either negligible or extremely opaque or misleading coverage in the legacy media. Throughout our lives, we have become accustomed to a more or less honest press, which we have felt able to rely upon to alert us in times of danger. This press was by no means perfect — it was afflicted by manifold financial compromises and ideological corruptions. But never in the history of Western civilisation have we before been threatened by anything remotely like what is coming without as much as a murmur from the Fourth Estates of our nations and societies, to prepare us to defend our own and our families’ lives.
The absence of a warning, as we must surely know by now, offers no reassurance whatsoever. The dog-not-barking has been sedated and muzzled. Though expected to continue paying for these corrupted platforms, we must look elsewhere to discover and confirm the truth. Moreover, we need to be watchful for the new role of the old ‘Fourth Estate,’ which resides in deflecting us from any kind of certainty or even awareness of what is really happening. We most certainly need to take notive of and override the insinuated scorn that is one of the modern media’s core products: the rejection as ‘conspiracy theory’ of everything and anything that does not fit the prescribed Narrative. For the past two years, these tendencies have destroyed innumerable businesses and cost millions of lives. To be waylaid by the same voices now will almost certainly prove fatal to the very civilisation we have hitherto felt able to take for granted.
The world, including the former ‘free world,’ faces a calamity of existential proportions, and it will accelerate rapidly from the very near future. To describe this in factual terms is to invite the incredulity of most of those who may hear or read it described. It does not seem possible that those upon whom we have depended to protect our societies, our economic welfare, our lives and our well-being, could possibly not be warning us in the event that some such catastrophe is now imminent. That, after all, is the very definition of their function, and arguably the whole of their necessary purpose. But that is precisely what is occurring.
Let us state things straightforwardly: The world, including the former ‘civilised’ world, now faces shortages of essential products that are likely to lead to widespread hunger, hardship, and very possibly starvation, and death. The flashpoints are the most critical conceivable: food and fuel. Moreover, there is every reason to believe that these shortages are being deliberately engineered to achieve something akin to that outcome. (…)
A ‘shortage of food’ is not the same thing as ‘food shortages.’ We are not talking about a shortage of items in the shops — perhaps of cornflakes or lentils, or flour. We are talking — in the first instance — of shortages of just about everything that human beings eat to stay alive: bread, meat, vegetables, fruit, dairy products, rice, pasta . . . And within a short time of these shortages becoming manifest, they will amount to a total absence of fresh foods, to be followed in short order by an escalating scarcity of pre-packed foods — in tins, cartons, bottles — as the effects of panic-buying and rationing kick in. This means that many people will have little or no food, which implies that, within a couple of weeks, people, including children, will begin starving to death — and not just in the ‘developing world’: this will occur also in the parts of the world that, up until 25 months ago, constituted part of the ‘modern,’ industrial,‘ ‘civilised’ West. (…)
Were this all simply due to bad luck or even gross incompetence, it would be terrifying enough. Far more shocking it that it is clearly all part of a carefully prepared programme — the 2030 agenda, or Fourth Industrial Revolution — planned to ensure that control of all food supplies becomes centralised and subject to hyper-regulation and conformity, including the elimination of livestock products from the human. This is likely to be accompanied by a licensing system for food production that will in all likelihood put an end to home producers growing vegetables in back gardens and allotments. Self-sufficiency will be declared a reactionary activity as the powers-that-shouldn’t –be ramp up their attacks on food sovereignty of all kinds. The bogus alibi for this is ‘climate change’, but the real purpose is the securing of total control over the food chain, so that the Combine of ‘secret unknowns’ can retain life-or-death leverage over every citizen: Do what you’re told if you want to go on eating. (…)
Over the course of the ‘Covid Project,’ the political actors responsible for the constrictions, cruelties and unasked-for changes inflicted on our lives and societies have presided over the transfer of something in excess of $3 trillion from small and medium-sized businesses to the richest oligarchs in the world. This, when it is mentioned at all in public discussion, is treated as some odd collateral element of the ‘battle’ against the ‘pandemic.’ Of course it is nothing of the kind. It is germane to the central meaning and end-purpose of the lockdowns, and the reason, for example, why the World Bank has, since the outset, referred on its website to the ‘Covid Project.’
This represents more than a straightforward upward transfer of wealth, which would be momentous enough in its own right, since it is something that has allegedly preoccupied the left-liberals of the world for generations, all of whom have now lapsed into a surreal silence. It also implies a shift in the nature of the meaning of words like ‘capitalism’ and ‘democracy’ — from terms denoting systems broadly designed to mechanistically deliver benefits to whole populations, to words that have miraculously been renovated to describe an entirely new kind of world. (…)
Hitler’s Third Reich, Stalin’s Soviet Union, Mao’s Cultural Revolution were all ideological projects devoted to abolishing contradiction from the human subject and reconstituting him as the less problematic posthuman. But the means in those times were inadequate to the ambition. Fundamentally, the elaborate ideologies of the last century sought to abolish the human soul, to eliminate the individual will, and to switch off the subjective consciousness of men. That was a beginning, a practice run. Now it is possible to intervene in the biological and cognitive levels of the human construction, changing these fundamentally. The remarkable finding of the present age, satisfactorily confirmed in the Covid Project, has been that man is programmable by the technologies already to hand. Moreover, by a certain enforceable logic, human beings and technology had already begun to converge, becoming so close that they already formed a unit in virtually every sense except the physical. The smartphone, for example, had become as much a body-part as the hearing-aid, and without a smartphone/computer the human person would be helpless in the modern street or building. It was surely time to move on to the next phase: the abolition of the human soul.
The few, who have no souls, seek to abolish the souls of the many out of jealousy, being unable to live with the idea that something so beautiful and so uncontainable could at the same time remain to them both vital and obscure. They insist on total control, to which the human soul represents the chief impediment. A world without soul would be a world of lies, a world which denies that which is hidden and mysterious, a world that insists on filling the vacant spaces with made-up stuff that has no life and therefore rings persistently false. The world of the lie is a world strung upon a false framework, a pseudo-reality that passes for the real thing. This is the world we were introduced to during the ‘Covid Project.’ (…)
To believe that this wicked madness can work at any level in practice is to misunderstand humanity, as well as of money, production and consumption. For reasons that are self-evidently intrinsic to the nature of the human edifice and the structure of reality, this plan is destined to fail spectacularly. The Combine of secret unknowns, possessing fabulous but mainly inherited wealth, has not the faintest idea how a world actually works. But the last two years have surely taught us that the incoherence at the heart of their plans will not protect us from the stupidity of those who have become drunk on the challenge of pushing their programme of demands, willy nilly. In a short while, it will become obvious that the project is doomed to failure, and by then they will have completely dismantled the world as it was. (…)
Our governments hate us. Affecting to protect our health and lives, they extinguish our freedoms and use our own sovereign capacity for self-protection, entrusted to them under franchise to be exercised for our benefit only, as a means of suppressing our questions and objections. They lie incessantly, apparently oblivious or indifferent to the transparency of these lies. They use our money — given into their charge for the betterment of our lives — to buy off our media so that they may further conceal their own mendacity and maintain the constructed pseudo-reality as a level of unassailability to general deconstruction. They abandon, cancel and delete the inheritance of rights and freedoms deriving from a process of evolution stretching back several millennia, and then speak as if such concepts had become the preoccupations of reactionary forces (…)
If there is a single ethical public agency remaining in the world, May 23rd (affording time for latecomers to arrive and settle into their Davos accommodation) would be a good day for a valiant band of such worthies to descend on Davos and arrest all present on various charges ranging from genocide to collusion. And if such a band of White Hats was to experience any initial doubt or confusion as regards its capacity to tell one criminal and his record from another, the generic indictment of ‘conspiracy to plunder and murder’ might be a good place to begin.
