From Here to There Through Now

October 3, 2022 Leave a comment

The world everyone takes for granted is in chaos. Financial Markets and Currencies are imploding and there’s talk of shortages, massive inflation, and a Cost-of-Living Crisis.

You know that something is seriously wrong. But you also find yourself completely at odds with what government, politicians and the establishment are doing. You look beyond, but cannot find any sensible way to identify with those who are blaming conspiracies for all our problems at the other end of what should surely be a reasoned debate. You ask yourself ‘Where is the real commonality between everyone; where is the middle ground?’

It may be reassuring to know that you are not alone.

Like almost every debate, argument, way of thinking or popular cause in today’s world, the question of government versus the people is just another example of how differences divide everyone, and how society is completely fractured as a result.

We have reached a dangerous impasse where groups demand you are either with them or against them. Nothing objective or meaningful can be allowed to get in the way. Finding the common view is simply a lost cause.

The problem is that in terms of where the world is today and the system collapse, crash or Great Reset that is now underway, the stakes of being so emotionally entrenched by the need to be seen as being right, for all of us, have never been so high.

There is another way. A middle way, that opens the door to a very different future. A better way of living and being that is now emerging as the world descends into chaos. Beckoning us all to awaken, learn, understand, and see the world and how it works today for what it is. It invites us all to take a leap of faith to divorce ourselves from the dying world order, and be part of a new grassroots-up, community derived system and economy that will usher in a revival of real values and care for the things in life that really do matter.

In his latest book From Here to There Through Now, Adam Tugwell builds upon the principles of Levelling Level and The Basic Living Standard.

Discussing the crash and system collapse that we are now experiencing, he brings very practical suggestions for the reader of how to thrive and survive as the so-called ‘Great Reset’ takes a firm hold, and how we can then flip everything we know, based upon the current Money-Based-Order and come together as one to establish and build a people centric economy and way of life, that really does just need a leap of faith to begin.

Please do share this blog and these links as the SEO algorithms hate this stuff!!! – Thank you!

This Economic Collapse: We are watching greed destroy lives and the real world around us in the forlorn hope that this dying world order and their system based on money will be saved

September 30, 2022 Leave a comment

Before anything else, it’s important to understand that whilst the decisions taken by Prime Minister Liz Truss and her Chancellor represent nothing less than doubling down on the very same stupidity that brought us to where we are now, the chaos they have caused is not itself responsible for the bigger system collapse that is underway.

Like most things in the public realm today, it just serves someone’s self-interest and an agenda that doesn’t help anyone else, for it to be made to look that way.

No, this blog is not an apology for Liz Truss and the ridiculous nature of her first 3 weeks in No. 10. But as I wrote before the disastrous ’mini budget’ last week, there remains a chance that Truss will do a massive u turn on everything, and for anyone with just a little humanity who cares about where this is all going, this surely must be a shared hope.

So much hides in plain sight in this money obsessed world. Smoke and mirrors and sleight of hand are at work everywhere. And as usual, even when everything is turning to chaos, neither the media nor the majority of people are even considering, let alone asking the questions about all that is happening, as we all really should.

For instance, how is it possible or how can it be that the £Pound can go into free fall and push the British economy to the edge of an economic crash, just because financial traders and people working in money and the markets lose their nerve or start placing bets on what will happen to our currency next?

There is little to be gained by exploring this massively dangerous anomaly here. Other than to state clearly, that this is perhaps the best demonstration of where power in this money-based order lies. And that the meaningful influence and real responsibility for life and living does not lie with the people who we might think.

Begin to consider just how this situation rolls out across almost everything and every part of life. You will soon have other questions in your mind about how every part of life could reach a point where we all exist at the whim of just a handful of people who have no care for anything out of their sight.

Out of sight, out of mind, is dictating the quality, content and realities of millions of people lives and their life experience. Not ethically, consciously or considerately. But in yet more ways that money – for just these greedy few – can be made.

No politician within the system that we have now will stand up to or do anything that will inhibit, restrain or redirect the activities of these interests. Not least of all because those running, managing and operating what are basically scams have the power to destroy economies and currencies in a moment; But because of our politician’s slavish devotion to this same money-based order that all of their futures – no matter their party – have been formed.

The financial, economic and currency system that we have today may well have worked well for the majority of people, IF there had been a sizeable and unavoidable chunk of ethical practices, morality and basic humanity involved from the very start.

Sadly, not only have principles and consideration of the consequences of every decision, over many points removed never been present, the whole system and everything it touches has become infected, dehumanised and even less caring about what happens to anyone and everyone else, as the flaws of the system have evolved and spread to everything since the Gold Standard was abandoned in 1971.

This is NOT the only way things can be.

This is NOT how things should be.

This is NOT how anything needs to be.

There is regrettably an element of truth in the thinking that nothing or no part of this can be changed, at least for the time being. Simply because the continuation of any part of this system, where people invested in it remain in control, means they will only allow and consider change which solidifies their position or will further advantage them in some way.

However, the collapse that these interests are trying to prevent with the very same tools they used to create it, cannot itself be controlled.

The people in charge, whether its elites, bankers or politicians, are in fact a very long way from having any sensible or rational ideas about how they can save their dying world order. That’s why we have wars, pipelines being blown up and ridiculous suggestions being made without a hint of irony that growth for the haves is the only way that hunger, poverty and shortages for the have-nots can be solved.

Not only those awake to the whole money lie, but the majority who now know that something has gone very wrong, will soon have the opportunity to choose a very different way.

This choice will come when this money-based system has broken and collapsed to the point that it stops working and its very functionality no longer makes any logical sense to people who can no longer be taken in by the con.

There is a lot of pain ahead that people should never have had to be exposed of. Indeed, it was never necessary that any of them should.

It has just been greed, selfishness and the absence of care and consideration for our fellow man that has brought us to the place that we are now, and that we must now face in the weeks, months and years ahead.

By continuing, choosing to continue, agreeing to, taking part in or supporting any of the establishment ideas and tribal thinking that currently exists and will be pumped out at us as the situation becomes critical, it will be made very easy for us to believe that in their hands, things can only get better – or at the very least, back to where and how we’ve always known them to be.

Yet the system is and has for a very long time been broken beyond repair.

The broken bricks and the carcass of this system and its governance can only be used effectively by those who wish for greed and the control of others to continue, by bolting everything together even more tightly – which will mean increasing amounts and very intrusive measures of control over what is left of ‘free life’.

Only those who believe they have something to gain by further enslaving people other than themselves will genuinely want to keep the money-based focus for everything going. And there are still a lot of them about.

The alternative is to build a new system and to create a new way of doing everything that is beneficial and fair to all. To quite literally raise a real phoenix from what doesn’t necessarily need to be ashes and build so drying much better and equitable for all, from the grassroots up.

Next week, I will publish my new book From Here to There Through Now. There I will go into much greater detail about what is really happening now, and how we can make the best of the situation, how we can survive and thrive as the transition takes place, and then step off and place the right building blocks working together in our communities as we recreate a people-centric world and remove all of the rot and disease that is rampant within the current system that our new world will replace.

Truss & Co. deliver yet another con and tie the money obsessed to the mast of the ship as the hull is about to split

September 23, 2022 Leave a comment

Meanwhile, as Rome burned‘, would be a great way to encapsulate either the greatest con or the deepest travesty delivered by the Truss Government at the Dispatch Box this morning.

The Roman Emperor Nero was of course notorious for playing the fiddle as he watched Rome burn after ordering it to be torched, whilst looking on like it meant nothing from afar. And Truss may have today delivered the final blow to the UKs dying money-focused economy, which could in terms of the UKs ability to function, be viewed very much in like metaphorical terms, if not exactly the same way.

I realise that people who have just been doing the sums and worked out that they might be £1000 a year better off simply don’t want to hear what anyone speaking up against this madness has to say. Nobody ever does when they are thinking ‘I’m alright, mate!’

But before getting carried away and proclaiming statements of the ridiculous such as ‘This is the most Thatcherite Budget since Thatcher’, or ‘This is what the Conservatives should have been doing for the past 12 years’, perhaps you might ask yourself one simple question: ‘Just exactly how will this all be paid for’. And if that doesn’t make you pause for breath, then ask yourself ‘How does this solve any of the other problems that are happening, other than taking my attention away from what’s really going on?

Spoiler: It won’t. It doesn’t.

Perhaps the greatest lie of the FIAT Money age or age of the Money-Based-Order, has been for government, the media, business leaders, bankers, academics and economists to perpetrate the myth that FREE Money actually exists.

We have quite literally had our own greed and selfishness used against us to fuel the belief that easy, unsustainable living and money for nothing comes at no cost to anyone or anything else.

When we all wake up and realise the truth, we will then already be the ones being directly hurt.

Hard to see for no better reason than the fact that we all have very short memories when our deliberately distractive forms of modern life get in the way, the strange truth of everything that is happening around us today – which this ‘Budget’ today has been purposefully designed to stop us from seeing – is that the world of created money was always destined to fail, no matter how long it would take.

It is just the case that the process has taken so long (since 1971 and the end of the Gold Standard) that the con has been going on too long for any of the so-called ‘leaders’ that we now have to realise that the whole thing will continue to appear to work for as long as the wheels remain attached. They don’t realise it will be too late to go a different way, once they have actually fallen off.

The Government and political RESPONSE to Brexit, Covid, Ukraine and now the subsequent energy and cost of living crisis have proven to speed up the inevitable collapse of the system – which to those who are now awake to everything happening around the world right now – is happening right before our eyes.

The media, commentators, the pundits and the opinionati may well play up the great giveaway in Parliament today, as any slavish establishment supporting what is little more than a fledgling tyranny naturally would.

But what they are actually cheering is the speeding-up of the bus that we are all on, already out of control and heading for the cliffs, happy in their own knowledge that instead of attempting to jump out of the emergency exit, those who are drunk on the addictions that this whole culture represents have instead put their seatbelts on and buckled themselves down for this over-the-cliff ride.

The irony is that with events unfolding around the world as they now are, many of the giveaways that have been thrown at so many of the people who least need them, are unlikely to even reach pay packets and tax returns before the whole system as we know it has already collapsed.

However, what this economically illiterate Government will have is a significant part of the Country still looking to them for the solutions that will never actually come when the collapse has fully crash landed. These people will quite literally have made themselves vulnerable to whatever lies and nonsense these charlatan politicians attempt to serve up at a time when we will instead need to quickly remember who we really are and work together with others like ourselves to begin taking back control – that is if we genuinely want the concept of real freedom to survive and then thrive.

Unlike those who have fallen into the trap of believing that there is some great conspiracy at work, rather than us just being on the wrong end of what happens when stupid people get drunk on influence and power, I am confident that when the shit finally hits the fan as it most surely will, enough people will wake up and realise that we do have options that don’t come in the forms of broken promises, well-presented and manufactured lies, and that don’t require us to depend on incompetents and stupidly ambitious people whose own progress and attainment  is the only thing they will ever understand.

Shortages of food and many goods will accompany the energy shortages that are also coming, as the house of cards which is our whole supply chain crashes and exposes everything that has been wrong with our entire greed-based money system and globalized system of supply.

And if this itself was not enough, the realities of a monetary system, based on nothing but created money – as the Truss Government has committed to even more today – will return to its intrinsic value – which isn’t even the paper or webspace that the whole lie has been written on.

Truss cannot stop the collapse. But she could have done a lot to soften the blow.

Instead, she has simply taken over the driving from Boris Johnson and put her foot straight to the floor.

Even a change of heart and a trademark U-Turn from Truss is now likely to flip the bus at the very least.

We can only hope that Liz Truss performs a trademark U-Turn, instead of continuing to fuel the complete collapse of everything that we have known, unopposed

September 21, 2022 3 comments

I would like to be wrong about Liz Truss and all that she represents, being just another member of the current Conservative Party and UK political cultural ‘Borg’ that every effort we have on her political record makes her appear to be.

That I’m not, so far, is no point for celebration. Rather a feeling of utter despair, knowing that stupidity leading the stupid is like breadcrumbs being laid out as a guide for the disheartened in a forest where ravenous crows have blocked out even the weakest sense of light.

In a fortnight that will be remembered for the death and mourning of our last real Monarch, the chances are that the true stories and the news that has been underway all this time will be hidden – and quite deliberately so – from history’s gaze.

Yet the truth is that the colossal bankrolling of energy companies, the decision to tear up restrictions on bankers bonuses, and committing another £2.3 Billion to a foreign war that is causing many more problems that it will ever solve, whilst  the government harps on about growth being the way to get the economy right, tell us all we need to know about the economic illiteracy of  the people who are about to destroy what’s left of our standing economic system.

It is sadly all too clear that those ‘in charge’ will not pay attention, consider and learn from history – as any leader who cared about the people they lead, would know to simply be right.

‘Desperate times require desperate measures’ may sound like the order of the day.

But good leaders don’t do desperation.

Good leaders know the value of stopping to pause, to listen and to reflect.

And right now, that looks like being a long way from anything that any of our politicians are doing. Least of all those at the top and in Downing Street, who unquestionably should.

Despite what those with an interest in perpetuating the culture of greed which is destroying the Country (and the World) are clearly whispering into the ears of our facile leadership, opening up bonuses to bankers will simply be seen as reward and greater incentive to do more of what they have already done. And what they have been doing, has been to destroy lives and make life meaningless for many more, just so they can add layers of gold to their already massively gilded cages.

Meanwhile. Opening up the taps of the flow of newly printed money that comes out of thin air, just does even more to devalue all that is left – minded as we should all be, that money has become the value upon everything in life is valued and based.

Without the collapse of the Money-Based-System, the pain and horror increasing numbers are experiencing cannot end. The ongoing torture, unfairness and lack of balance will not be replaced.

Then there is the war in Ukraine that simply serves no purpose either in terms of creating additional debt, or sticking to the moralistic imposition of sanctions on energy and other resources, that would never have been necessary if generations of foolish politicians had not fallen into the globalisation trap and got themselves drunk on the belief that everyone who sells us anything can always be trusted to do the right thing, and that offshoring is the only way to be assured of ‘economic growth’ and pecuniary gold.

The stupidity continues

Ironically, the path that the Truss government is taking today, is strangely familiar.

It is reminiscent of the communists and Marxist idealists amongst us – the Jeremy Corbyn’s of the world – who insist that the only reason that communism hasn’t worked so far, is because it wasn’t done in the way that it should have been done.

Truss is quite literally facing down the collapse of a system that is being collapsed by the very devices she plans to use. Instead of shouting STOP! Truss is instead choosing to cry out and demand ‘Let’s have more!!!’

It is beyond regrettable that the sickness that is the greed and obsession which has been created by the Money-Based-Order means that many people will not be weaned away from it until it has destroyed something that is dear to them.

This means that the political class will continue to pursue money-driven solutions to problems that can no longer be solved using money, until either their own roles have been destroyed, or they have a lucid moment where they realise and accept that there is a better choice.

Dare to Hope

Typical of her peers in so many unfortunate ways, it is Truss’s proven ability to change direction in significant ways that could mean she may act, if and when her watershed moment comes – so long as it is before what is left of our system of governance hasn’t already been destroyed.

Whilst the collapse and the entire ‘Great Reset – that will happen whether the WEF succeed in owning it or not – is now inevitable, the dangerous vacuum that will arrive when this system collapses can be avoided if we have proactively made provision for what is likely to happen.

However, to do so, we MUST have already began working to put new systems in place that will take all the best ideas and technologies that have been created to promote profit, and repurpose, reharness and regain control and direction of them to support rather than lead a very new localised world system that some will recognise by names such as ‘new earth’.

I have no care for and no investment in who the person or people who get these steps right that will benefit us all will be.

With the people who have platforms outside of government, the establishment and the mainstream being as obsessed with conspiracies and their own grandeur in the lame way  that many of our existing politicians already are, it doesn’t matter who the leaders are or where they come from, as long as they have woken up to the whole picture and are committed to doing what it actually right.

It is clear. As I write, that the new Prime Minister is doubling down on all the very same things that have created all of the problems that we now face.

The people driving this are out of ideas and solutions and will drive everything we know to destruction rather than accept any responsibility for the dangers that we now face.

None of the politicians sitting in Parliament today have either the position or the track record of pivoting in quite the same way as Liz Truss can. There is no reason to believe that any of them – as part of any type of government would or can.

If Liz Truss wakes up lucidly, or indeed literally one morning and events have forced her hand to consider the alternative view, these are the few things that she must begin immediately, if the chaos and darkness that comes with a power vacuum are to be avoided and kept from our view:

In no particular order – as each of these are as important as each and every one of the next:

STOP PRETENDING WE ARE NOT ALREADY IN A NATIONAL CRISIS:

We are already in a recession, in all probability the first stages of a very serious depression, and things are going to get a whole lot worse.

People want and deserve to be treated like adults and they also need to hear the difficult messages explained properly, so they know who they can trust. Money is no longer the answer and creating more of it is just making the horrific situation we already face a whole lot worse.

Begin contingency planning NOW:

People will continue to need the basics for life. If the basics stop for just a small but cumulative number of people for more than just a few days, all bets are off as far as the future and what life will soon look like are concerned.

Provision for rationing MUST be made right now, along with the systems that will support it.

Plans MUST be made to support the work of Foodbanks where they already exist, and to literally create soup kitchens and community food and essential goods supply hubs that everyone across the UK can access – even if the need should only be a short period of time.

Community transport operators should be put on standby and volunteer opportunities promoted and supported by the government opened up, so that no vulnerable person will be overlooked in a time of need, whether that means transporting them out or directing support to their home.

The Basic Living Standard:

The overarching and universal direction of travel MUST be the transformation from the Money-Based-Order and the wealth-based value set, to a people-centric or people-first economy.

People and the role of each of us MUST become the primary unit of value.

People MUST come before everything else.

Profit (Economic Growth) MUST be abandoned as the priority, with every part of life being expected to follow on behind.

It MUST be replaced with THE BASIC LIVING STANDARD – where every part of the so-called economy is refocused to ensure that every adult, doing the most basic job, can afford to feed, cloth, house, transport, entertain and support themselves, without third party support or without going into debt. This MUST be the priority for people, for business, for government, for EVERY part of life.

Debt Jubilee:

As the Money-Based-Order collapses and the value of the FIAT Money System is reduced to the value of nothing – which is its genuine form, There MUST be a debt jubilee where all private and business debt of those who have not been profiting from the Money-Based-System is written off. A FAIR assessment must be made of property that is already ‘owned’, with common assets and resources all retuned to public ownership.

Return to Loclalised Food Production:

The globalised (EU) approach to food production and agriculture across and around the UK MUST be abandoned immediately and returned to its pre-globalsised and EU forms.

Food production and the ancillary activities and industries that support it must be restored to the most localised level possible, supported by all legal and rule changes necessary to ensure that food production and supply is focused on what is right for people, rather than what is best for profit making and trade.

Whilst there is money to do so, Farmers, cooperatives and localised food supply chains hubs MUST be funded so that local food supply can be proficiently maintained once it has been restored.

Onshoring:

GLOBALISATION IS DEAD. IT HAS FAILED. IT HAS AND IS HURTING US ALL.

Each and every kind of industry that the UK needs to function and support itself and the people who live and work here MUST be returned to our own shores.

The aim MUST be UK self-sufficiency to meet all of our own basic needs as a priority and one that is fulfilled on an emergency basis, as we would do so if we were to find ourselves engaged in another full-scale war.

Genuine Devolution:

The current system of governance and its structure of delivery is operationally broken and culturally dysfunctional. Power for ALL public policy MUST be returned and restored to the lowest Tier of Government that already exists, with centralizing roles such as Metropolitan Mayors and Police & Crime Commissioners disbanded with immediate effect.

Taxation:

The old system of Taxation MUST be ended. New systems of taxation MUST be introduced that focus on ownership and holdings, rather than earnings and production.  

Rearmament:

We MUST end the direct and indirect involvement in foreign wars. Bring all military units home and begin to rebuild the standing army, navy and air forces to levels capable of conducting every type of conventional campaign around the world – as was once known.

We MUST prioritise the UK and our self-sufficiency first. But we cannot have and maintain any kind of productive relationship with any foreign nation – even those that are relatively close by – if we cannot assure the security of that relationship at all times.

Ukraine & Foreign Wars:

We MUST Stop being led by the US. Respect the dynamics of sovereignty of ALL sides in international disputes. Never again get involved in any conflict where the primary driver is money and private commercial interests.

We MUST Respect the culture and history of all interests where foreign interventions cannot be avoided. Never without question take the position of just one side.

We MUST Sue for Peace with Russia, because like it or not, WE ARE ALREADY AT WAR.

Stop the Bailouts (In whatever form they might be!):

No private company should receive public money to keep them in business.

If any company providing services on a universal basis where public owned businesses have previously been should not be able to function without a state handout, they should be immediately taken back into public hands.

Any other privately owned business providing products or services that do not meet a public need should be allowed to collapse, unless their ownership in public hands can be utilized fully in a form that will be or could become a universal benefit of some kind.

Nationalisation, Regionalisation and Infrastructure Investment:

ALL Universal Services MUST be returned to public ownership.

We MUST invest heavily in a new localised small-reactor and localised power network programme.

We MUST invest in new water infrastructure including new reservoirs, reactivation of those that private water companies have sold off, and the building of new desalinization plants around the coast of the UK.

Union influence MUST be removed from the new public operating companies too.

Public Sector Reform:

Bottom to Top reform MUST take place, with prioritisation restored to delivery and away from management.

Operational control of public services MUST be decentralised so that it is as local as possible, with the focus restored to the end-user and their first points of contact.

Non-jobs MUST be abolished, and responsibility returned to real decision makers and away from the influences of meeting culture, statistics and measuring ways that everything performs.

We MUST STOP pretending that public services are a business and can ever perform like a business.

We MUST Restore the culture where each and every public servant is responsible and expected to take responsibility for everything that they do.

Local Internet Regulation:

Legislation MUST be created to ensure that the internet and any service provided within it can only be used as a service between people, businesses and services that would be accessible face-to-face by the end-user in real life or live time.

The Rehumanisation of all relationships is key to creating an internet and services that work for and are beneficial for all

End the ‘Free Market Myth’:

Government MUST step back from the misplaced and big money serving idea that increasing the freedom of markets will help people and the so-called economy.

Trickle-down economics simply doesn’t work and the philosophies of economists of long ago have no place in the armory of any leader who is taking seriously the problems we face today.

Any Markets that continue to exist and function during and after the collapse MUST be regulated as part of the process of restoring ethical standards to the activities of anyone and any business which can have an effect on the ability of others to function and live.

Create a two-tier universal and localised DeFi monetary system:

We MUST have a two-layer monetary system. One that allows localities and communities to function as their own marketplaces – many times over – whilst maintaining the surety of an overarching national digital currency.

The system must operate on the basis that the value or exchange rate of the goods and services essential to the basics of life are set locally, AND the technology used does not allow the monitoring of users and/or influence over purchases at any level for the user, unless the user would otherwise be able to work but is in receipt of the equivalent of the Basic Living Standard instead of a weekly or monthly wage.

***

All these measures are just a start. The collapse that is now underway dictates that the world will become very different from now on, whether that be through the period of transition, or how our entire system of governance works on a more localised basis from thereon.

Liz Truss has the opportunity to be the leader who oversees and drives the transition from the ‘old’ world order to the new world and way of being for us all that is on its way and is yet to come.

The change is inevitable. It’s simply a question of whether those who in power now can change their minds and play a positive and decisive part or will be swept aside by events because they stick slavishly to the old way of doing things and stand in the way.

10 Spoilers about the so-called ‘New World Order’ and what is really now underway

September 21, 2022 2 comments

Despite the increasing talk about the plans of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and their dastardly plans for a New World Order, a lot of people have been blinded by the fear of what all this talk represents.

Sadly, many of the people outside of government and establishment influence who have public platforms have been drawn into behaving like rabbits in the headlights and they are unwittingly fueling this fear too.

Everyone needs to take a step back; count to ten and do the reading, research and thinking necessary to see the wider situation we face for what it is.

Yes, there is a massive system collapse underway. But this isn’t the birth of a ‘new’ world order. It is the death of the one that already exists. One that has been hurting us all more than we are ready to accept for a very long time.

Today we are watching the death throes of the world order that already exist. And the chaos is set to continue to get worse as all those who have knowingly benefited, desperately try to put out the flames of this collapse by adding even more of the fuel they used to create it (MONEY!).

If you are looking beyond the establishment and the mainstream media for answers that will only begin to make sense once you can move beyond the betrayal of trust and begin to reflect on how you have bought into all of this too, here are 10 SPOILERS or hacks for you to get started with:

SPOILER No.1: The WEF and all its cronies represent a dying world order. One that was once new and you’ll find politicians talking about it historically too. However, their ‘new world order’ is being destroyed by the very same tools that they designed to propagate and assure their own power decades ago, whilst they filled their own pockets at the expense and impoverishment of everyone else.

SPOILER No.2: The System and Economic collapse is happening, because the clever system that the world elites created to enrich themselves had its own set of rules. Generations of foolish and stupid politicians and the bankers and business leaders who influence them – motivated by their own ambition and greed; have long since forgot, completely ignored or been left out of the loop of their own secrets. The mess they have created is what we are all now experiencing as it unfolds.

SPOILER No.3: The only tool that this Money-Based-Order ever had was to create money out of thin air. The aim was always to benefit the few who understood the reality of ‘The Lie’, whilst perpetuating the myth for the many, that money has always been real. They quite literally created rules to support ‘The Lie’, making it a crime to work against a value and morality set that is no more than an idea which is based on making something real out of nothing but thin air. The many have not only increasingly lost out, they have been punished for the inadequacies and unfairness of this duplicitous system too.

SPOILER No.4: The people behind the Money-Based-Order don’t have any way to solve the problems that they have created that we are all now facing today. Their only option now is to print more and more money that has no value other than the belief that we all still attribute to it. Then, when the system finally collapses, they will do all they can to attempt to maintain and further impose control. The desperate steps that the elites are taking under the guidance of the WEF (such as stopping farmers from farming) are no more than a preemptive attempt to destroy the infrastructure that they know people will quickly harness for the common good, once the collapse has destroyed any remaining practicality to their plans.

SPOILER No.5: YOU CAN SAY NO MORE TO ALL OF THIS AT ANY TIME. The secret is hidden within us all. The secret is all about the way that we think.

SPOILER No.6: The only reason that the things we consider to be normal and part of daily life around our Countries and around the World appear to be continuing to work, is because too many people still believe that the system they are living in and experiencing is beneficial to them in some way. We – that’s the people that this system is hurting – are actually the ones who are keeping this dying system alive right now!

SPOILER No.7: The collapse that is now underway will affect everyone. The Money-Based-System was built and perpetuated on greed that has benefitted the few at the cost of the many. Anyone – and that’s pretty much all of us – who has bought into the wealth-driven, money-is-god way of valuing everything in life, will be hurt as the material ‘things’ we believed to be important that it gave us – which it never really did – are taken away. No, not everyone will lose everything they ‘think’ they now have. But what is left after the collapse and the period of crisis is over, will be valued by us all in a very different and much healthier way. We have the opportunity and will think about life very differently to how we do now.

SPOILER No.8: The Money Based Order is OVER. We may not realise or even see it yet. But the Top-Down system has been on a downward trajectory for years and in reality, from the moment that the post-war pathway to globalisation began. The responses of Governments to Brexit, Covid and War in Ukraine – and now the resultant energy crisis too, have made it impossible for the Money-Based-Order (That’s the FIAT Money System) to be saved. That is why the collapse is now underway.

SPOILER No.9: We ALL have TWO CHOICES coming up. We ALL have the collective choice of becoming little more than caged animals, shackled with digital chains, kept happy with virtual reality and computer games in a world that revolves around an open secret which is our mass enslavement where existence will be about nothing more than making up the numbers for the few who believe that the world and everything in it was put here for them to own. The alternative choice WE ALL HAVE is to take back control of our own lives and rebuild society from the grassroots up, rebuilding and restoring a value set that revolves around the value of people, consideration for others and our whole environment before wealth or anything else, returning technology to its rightful place as our servant and money as the system of exchange it was always only supposed to be.

SPOILER 10: Your Community, Your Locality, The people you know and regularly see, is where the real power behind life for you and everyone around you should always be. By getting decisions in our localities right and stepping back from the dependence on systems and people who we do not know and will never ever see, we will return to a form of living and governance for us all that places true value upon everyone who takes part and is involved. Take care of what’s real first and the rest will follow!

WARNING: If you continue to live in fear of what people like those who represent the WEF are threatening, promising or arrogantly committing everyone too, that is exactly how the world you know will become.

THE OPPORTUNITY: No, we may not all be awake to what has happened and what is now happening and why life is now as it is. But the collapse and the effects and reach that it will have into the live of everyone will present a real choice for everyone.

THE TRAP: The risk is that too many will hear the promises made by people they should never again trust and take what sounds like the easy options and a route back to how things were for ‘everyone’ before. Unfortunately, there is no route back and the days of endless abundance and the selfishness and loss of integrity for us all that it has encouraged are no more. If you listen to that lie, you will discover too late that the freedoms you never really had but which you still covet are no more.

THE ENDGAME: Freedom of a kind that you have never really known starts in the mind. Pain and difficulty is now inevitable. The choice you have is whether you want to experience it so that someone else controls every part of yours and everyone else’s lives, or whether you take the leap of faith and trust the people you know and see everyday, and work together to make life better for everyone, beginning and getting it all right from the grassroots up.

Most of us already know deep down that the world as we have known it can no longer go on. The way we have been living has been completely unsustainable and we have placed our value for life on nothing but money and trinkets, whilst we have traded our integrity, our health, our happiness, our relationships and our humanity for nothing but thin air. It has been a very convincing lie!

Nothing is really free – whether we talk about how things are valued right now in terms of money, or how they should be in terms of thinking that really could be as simple as saying that ‘In life, you get back what you put in’.

Things are going to get very tough, very soon. The choice you have to make won’t be like voting, signing a form, buying something or agreeing to follow someone or something else. It will quite literally be about saying no to what appears to be more of or a continuation of all that you have known, and then to take the leap – with others – into what will only appear for a brief moment look like the unknown.

See you there!

The only fair and just solution to the problems we face, isn’t left or right. It is a middle way that no political or economic ‘expert’ will like

The only thing worse than the failure of the capitalist experiment – which is the reason for the cost-of-living crisis and the systemic collapse that we are now in the early stages of – is a new narrative, already at work across podcast, vlogging and social media platforms, telling us that capitalism is absolutely great – it just has to be done in a different way.

If this ‘we would do it better and make it work’ mantra sounds familiar, it’s because it’s almost exactly the same one that we have been hearing for decades from the apologists and champions of socialism. Or rather communism or even Marxism in its most inhumane and punishing forms.

Uncomfortable as the reading may be, the painful reality is that what socialism and capitalism in their many respective forms have in common, is it is only their leaders, crown princes and elites that benefit from these perverse systems of governance. They just play to the vulnerabilities and ignorance of the very people they keep captive, through idealism or an obsession with money and wealth, in their most malevolent and destructive forms.

Sadly, our cosseted and entitled world, is a very long way from the experience of Stalin’s historic Gulags, contemporary North Korea or some of the very dark places that China’s ruling CCP hides away today.

So, the innocent idealism that accompanies the inexperience of our massively overlooked young, is all too easily taken in. It is manipulated and misled by the militant generation and their sleepers. Unforgiving victims to the realities of life, whose anger, bitterness and complete lack of understanding of the human experience beyond their own bubble makes the young all too easy for them to betray.

At the other extreme, greed, self-interest and an obsession with power and wealth that drive everything in this failing system, have intoxicated even the most virtuous at every level and nuance of life.

Decades of manipulation and propaganda have made us believe that material wealth is the only way that happiness can be obtained. Old and young alike are so drunk on all that they have or could possess, that they do not believe it possible that a system that feels so good, could never ever fail them or go completely wrong.

Few understand that we are all part of an addicted society, where everyone’s habit is money, wealth and whatever it takes to get it.

Yes, the rules are set by some very wealthy and very greedy people at the top. But they have successfully bent every part of our lives to the will of a greed that has then infected our lives so effectively, that we have forgotten the true meaning and value of any part of life that doesn’t carry a price tag.

The most bizarre twist of similarities between capitalism and socialism is our obsession with this same material wealth. It’s just on one hand the messaging tells the unprivileged population that it should reject it and every part of it. Whereas the other demands that we allow it to takeover our lives in every possible way.

Wealth, prosperity, ownership and individual success are not wrong. Its how we behave when we have them, or what we do with them, that can lead to unimaginable crimes.

The biggest crime of all that has been visited upon humanity by these religions and wealth based political ideologies, is their success in making everything in life all about money in some way.

But it is people, not money or things, that we should always put first.

No Labour Government, no cryptocurrency, no Liz or Rishi, VAT Relief on Energy Prices, Cash Handouts, Qualifications without study, Universal Basic Incomes, Strikes, Inflation beating wage rises, The WEF ‘You’ll own nothing and will be happy’, or any other self-serving tool of the political left and right alike will work to benefit anyone but those who are sat at the top of these top-down, self-serving trees.

There’s a flow chart for all of them. It always goes in exactly the same way. The flow slowly but surely takes everything. In return it sells us much, but in truth gives very little back.

Yet the flow of life should always go full circle and come all the way back around. So that everyone is able to exist and just exist if that’s all they really want to do. Anything and everything else should just be effort related. This is the meaning of ‘you get back what you put in’.

The alternative to these failed and flawed political and economic philosophies that all belong to a money obsessed world, is for us to choose to take the middle way.

The only option or choice to solve all of our problems, is to put People First.

A People First society works from the grassroots up. It puts people and their communities first, providing the legislative, social, business and supply chain networks that put the sustainability of life and the self-sustainability of each and every individual who can work (supporting those who cannot), before anything else.

A People First society requires that all businesses and their processes place the needs of essential living for the community and the advancement of working conditions as their priority. That earnings beyond break-even, are responsible and not traded beyond those who have a direct interest or are actively involved.

A People First society puts governance of the people, for the people, by the people above all things, and always prioritises localism first. It recognises the need for collaboration at every level. But respects collaboration should never itself require the surrender of relative powers at any level of local agency or of our own control.

The central tenet, pivot point or anchor of The People First Economy is The Basic Living Standard or The Basic Living Standard for All.

The Basic Living Standard requires that the minimum wage or wage paid for the least demanding role that any society may have, will always be enough for the person who earns it to cover the basic essentials of life.

The Basic Living Standard for All requires that an independent adult will always be able to feed, clothe and home themselves. To provide for their own basic communication, transport and entertainment needs, along with everything that is essential to ensure that person can exist without third party support, without subsidy from government (benefits) and without having no choice but to go into debt.

By adopting this formula and requiring every part of society, business, industry and other to focus on The Basic Living Standard and doing nothing that will compromise it, either intentionally or unknown will assure its success.

The Basic Living Standard for All will ensure that every part of society, our system of governance and fundamentally the ways in which we live, will redirect to putting People First – which is now the only sustainable way that we will survive and live free and happy lives.

The Basic Living Standard will encourage people to achieve, excel and do whatever they really want to do. But in a People First economy, nobody will be able to do so by exploiting or riding off the back of others, or without regard for the real consequences or true cost of anything they do which can or has the potential to affect the lives of others.

The prioritisation of People, communities and locality first, will not only solve the problems created by greed, by envy and the hatred they promote. It will also address the climate issues, which are the consequences of years of greed-driven abuse of the environment and overuse of natural resources too.

***

With things as easy right now as we have been brainwashed to believe they are, change would not be possible for any of us in what we understand to be ‘normal’ times.

However, most of us already know we are no longer in ‘normal’ times, even if it’s not something that we find easy to say out loud.

Whilst politicians and the elites are still pushing a narrative using their pet media that suggests that everything is planned and thought through, there are no alternatives, and above all – that they are in control; the truth is that they are not.

The cost-of-living crisis and everything that is now going wrong with public services like the NHS in the UK, are all part of a systemic collapse. A collapse of everything we know that is both their responsibility and their fault.

When it hits YOU and the people who are important to YOU – in whatever way that will be, that will be the moment YOU have the choice to decide what YOU want to do.

Just remember; a leopard never changes its spots.

The Basic Living Standard is proposed as the solution to our problems in ‘Levelling Level’, a book that I wrote and published in early 2022, where I also discuss how we got here, what’s really going on, and how it’s possible for us to thrive and survive throughout the difficulties and challenges that we will soon face.

Both Levelling Level and my shorter e-book about The Basic Living Standard are available to read as books for Kindle and can be bought and downloaded from Amazon by clicking the links below.

However, the complete content is available to read FREE on my other blogsite www.levellinglevel.wordpress.com, where you will find the index of all pages on the right-hand side of the PC or Laptop viewed screen.

Stop reacting and being blinded by the agenda. Be proactive. Help create and frame a new system that works proactively for us all instead

The chances are that in terms of the world as we know it collapsing around us, you fall in to one of two categories.

Either you have confidence that the government and establishment have your best interests at heart in all that they do – and that we are just living through unprecedented times. Or, you are already so convinced that such mismanagement and ineptitude on the part of politicians can only be deliberate, and that there really is some grand plan or conspiracy that links to the plans of the worlds elites and the WEF at work.

Sadly. No, very regrettably. There is very little, and in fact there may as well be nothing sat in between the two.

The funny thing is, that whilst pretty much everyone fits into one of these two categories today, these affiliations, de facto groupings or whatever you want to call them, aren’t where the majority of people within them either should be, or indeed would be. IF they were to stop for a moment, stand back, see and consider the whole of this degenerating situation for what it all really is.

Predictions in the ‘lets sit around the table and have a reading from the crystal ball sense’ don’t really help anyone when we are facing the wide ranging problems that we are.

In fact, you don’t even need predictions now. Because a respect for history and some deep thinking about human behaviour and how it relates to the world we live in and how it has been developing to reach a situation like this today over decades, will tell you all that you really need to know.

Exploding inflation and the cost-of-living crisis as we understand it today – really is just the start.

Food shortages, famine, mass migration that will make the channel crossings look like a comedy show and a collapse in public services, financial systems and our whole system of governance is now locked in (or baked in – as our hapless outgoing PM likes to say it). So, in terms of what is on its way, you really aint seen nothin’ yet.

This isn’t something to celebrate. There will be no happy ‘I told you so’s’ or anything like that, when all that is now inevitable has come to pass.

Like many others on the outside looking in, I look at all this with a feeling of dread and sorrow for my fellow man. Not because it’s going to happen (It is inevitable and cannot now be stopped). But because we are all, collectively, doing absolutely nothing to mitigate, slow or resist any of it. And instead we are en masse, continuing to make all the same mistakes.

The narrative that the WEF and the elites has crafted, and uses the media daily to mold continually into a ‘this has already happened and cannot be stopped’ way of thinking, is very clever. Because the majority of people – even those who are the most vocal against it all – are actually accepting everything that they are being told.

That much is clear, simply because of the level of inaction. Or lack of meaningful action that is instead replaced with this way of thinking that comes with the social media age where otherwise very sensible people have fallen into the trap of thinking that getting your message of criticism and cries of war out there online or into some kind of highly myopic protest, are all it takes to precipitate an alternative to this elite serving reality, to unfold.

Only today, we have the example of these ridiculously stupid politicians who are now competing in a beauty contest to be the UKs next Prime Minister, crying foul of the Don’t Pay UK ‘movement’. Claiming that the groups plans for a million people to stop their energy bill direct debits in October are irresponsible. (Pot calling the kettle black, perhaps?)

I sympathise completely with the sentiment of the organisers and those who have signed up to take this action.

But just like a politician who claims they invented the concept of Free Ports as a teenager and who will no doubt soon claim the design of the wheel as being one of theirs too, the point is, that everything that everyone is doing or failing to do when it comes to public policy now, is making or will make an already catastrophic direction of travel, even worse.

SPOILER: The Government is no longer ‘in charge’ of anything. But neither are the politicians paymasters or the WEF. The ‘system’ is now so broken, that it simply cannot be fixed. It is simply existing momentum and the belief or investment that people have in it, that is keeping the wheels turning on the bus as its picking up speed and about to fire us all over a massive cliff.

Oh, and the people we are led to believe are competent politicians…. They really are not who we believe they are.

If we continue to do nothing. Everything that the WEF and their political puppets are saying and working towards will savagely and very painfully become true.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. The outcome they intend is not the only way. Their planned outcome may include us, but it is certainly not ours.

All it takes is for us all to stop going along with their agenda. We must use the momentum of this worsening situation to create our own alternative way and plan for the world. One that actually works for and on behalf of us all – instead.

Don’t be mad, angry or nasty to anyone who is still under the establishment spell. Some, yes many of them won’t wake up until it feels like it is too late. But wake up they will.

And when they do wake up, we must all come together and work constructively to rebuild, reform and regenerate everything in a much better, fairer and more meaningful way.

One that doesn’t value money, wealth and all things based on greed as it does today. But instead simply puts people – and that’s all of us – first.

Pain is now inevitable. And there is trauma fast approaching us that is going to test all of us in ways that to many are simply unknown.

The most effective way we can make the best of a very bad situation, is to start working on the solution and the answers to what happens next, right now.

None of our politicians would know what to do, the moment that they experienced a genuine political threat.

Think Brexit Party and Vote Leave and the European Referendum in the UK in 2016. Then put it on steroids and think of something like it – this time not left or right but includes everyone – covering every kind of public policy that touches each and every one of our different lives, and in very meaningful ways.

Its all about creating our new system from the grassroots up. And doing so as the very greed that this collapsing system was intended to serve finally destroys the whole meaning and existence of everything that is top down.

The inescapable truth is the only way this political class can rescue the UK now, is for them to turn on big business, banking and every bit of corrupted legislation they helped create, then flip it all completely on its head

You may have seen or heard that Rishi Sunak’s latest ruse to rescue his leadership ambitions in the race against Liz Truss, is to promise a £10 fine for those who miss NHS and Doctors’ Appointments.

Whilst some of those more likely to blame all this on a conspiracy amongst us have immediately blamed this as the sign of the first steps to widespread charging for health services, I’m afraid that the reality is far more prosaic. It instead tells us more about just how desperate these self-styled leaders have now really become.

I have not encountered one person and amongst them even teenagers, who have not been scratching their heads when discussing the promises that are being dished out by these two wannabe Prims Ministers, and the blaringly obvious absence of any solutions to the problems that we are experiencing now, or indeed any of those that a growing number of us recognise that will soon come.

The Tory beauty contest, or what we should really recognise as a race to the bottom, is not built on any policy ideas or even suggestions that are either tangible or have real meaning in any way. Simply because all of the tools they have are the very same tools that created the problems, and it was the same thinking that they are now offering us wrapped up differently that has created the pathway to chaos that we are now on.

That ALL of our MPs treat the electorate with complete contempt should now be a given. However, for many of us, there remains the childlike willingness to believe that what appears to be new is always guaranteed to bring change. The problem is that in this top-down system, the more we are told things change, the more they stay the same.

The reality that are MPs and this entire political culture refuses to face, is that all the problems and difficulties that we are now facing, have been facilitated by them in their ignorance and willingness to play up with every action and breath to their paymasters. Business leaders, bankers, elites and even union leaders who have never had to explain the consequences for real people when they have been passing out the metaphorical brown envelopes and stroking the palms of 650 useful fools.

Everything we have is broken and now beginning to wreak havoc and inflict pain upon us, because greed and selfishness are the basic foundations upon which everything has been focused, redirected and changed.

Cash handouts will certainly help those at the white-hot edge of the coming inferno. But that help will only repel the growing flames for a very short time.

The only way that people – and that means all of us – can now be genuinely helped, will be for the whole system to be overturned, broken and then rebuilt. Not in any way top-down as before with the focus on money and wealth. But putting people first, alongside localities and communities – recognising the real value of every relationship, of being happy to simply be and what it means to do right by everyone and everything, instead of this broken idea of living, that values everything in terms of what its price, cost or return will ultimately be or mean.

To the people who want to run this Country, real pain and hardship caused by the consequences of biased and unfair regulation is not something they have the capacity to understand. Indeed, they represent and give meaning to everything that is wrong with the world that we live in, and the only way they could change any of it would be to think, act and speak in a way which is completely at odds with the people and the thinking that makes them who they genuinely believe they are.

Things will get worse and worse until they can get no worse. Only then can the change we all so desperately need begin

If you are following the Conservative Leadership ‘race’, even from a distance, it is easy to fall into the trap of believing that things really will change for the better. Just as soon as the new incumbent (aka Prime Minister), has been appointed by Tory Members, the world-famous door to No.10 has opened, and they have very publicly walked in.

SPOILER: It won’t.

In fact, if you have been listening, hearing, and really thinking about all that the two wannabes and ALL of the politicians across Parliament are telling us – that is, if you feel genuinely able to keep engaged – you will quickly realise that there is nothing new in anything that we are being told.

In fact, all of the bullshit we are having pumped at us from every direction only confirms that what we can expect is just the same and nothing more.

ALL of the politicians, the parties and the people who have held their seats and roles before them have been doing exactly the same things as today’s politicians are.

Our politicians are motivated by ambition, by wealth, by celebrity and basically by anything and everything that they can secure for themselves. It doesn’t matter the party or tribe to which they belong.

The divorce from reality and the real world that you and I live in, which even the most well-intended of these politicians inevitably suffer – because they are so committed to doing what they are told – has meant that those behind the scenes, at the top of business and across the establishment, the people who have agendas, have been able to influence the legislation that controls just about every part of life and the way that public policy works.

The elites have literally been aided and abetted to create a system that filled their pockets. Whilst the helpful idiots that have infested our political system, keep peddling the myths that everything is being done in our best interests and that we should accept it all as being right.

The slavish way that our MPs are motivated and behave, means that whoever is in  power, forms a government or is sat in No.10, there will be no meaningful deviation or change in policy that moves us away from the very same narrative that overrides and feeds into the way that the UK has been disasterously  for decades.

Tory, Labour, Liberal Democrat and other politicians have managed and made each and every choice, decision, action and event which has led to the problems that many of us are already experiencing now, along with the even bigger issues that we now inevitably face.

It really is already ‘baked in’.

This whole narrative has regrettably played continuously to the darker side, desires and wants of human nature. Sadly, we have all, at some level, bought into the money focused world.

Even now, we all continue to bear responsibility for the damage that is being done by selfishness and greed at every level of society. Even when increasing numbers of us recognise that the process of an horrific crash of our system and everything that we know is already underway.

Good, responsible politicians, who are genuine leaders and public representatives, would have anticipated and stopped the fall that humanity is now going through, long before now.

Instead, we have people running the Country who quite literally think leadership is as simple as being the one who has the title and the job. That everything else just falls into place. That everything will work better and as it always should have done, simply because they as individuals are better than everyone else. And now it’s their turn.

After all, how could anything fail when everything in the whole world is just about them?

If you can stop and find a moment to reflect on what some of the people you may have already passed in the street today are already going through in terms of going hungry, not having enough money and looking at unnecessary price rises that are weeks away that are going to destroy lives. If you can start to visualise how events and the challenges we face are going to get worse and worse for a rapidly growing number of people from all areas, all social groups and all colours. If you can see that this is the greed of corporate monsters filtering through, whilst our MPs do nothing more than create more money for them, whilst continuously devaluing everything that we have. You will soon realise that the frustrations and anger that is brewing will very soon go beyond a problem that can be reconciled by the establishment politely suggesting that everyone outside Westminster should do no more than bite their tongues and count to ten.

The politicians that we have today will not change their path, nor their direction. Not until the situation and circumstances for us all are seen and accepted by everyone to be outside of their control.

It doesn’t matter that many of the problems manifesting around our lives now tell us clearly that this has already happened. That this political class are already well and truly out of their depth.

Whilst the narrative tells us this is normal. Whilst everything continues to look like its working. Whilst we continue to believe that this system is still working for us. The downward trajectory and process of destruction that our politicians started to facilitate decades ago will continue. The only change being that it will pick up more and more speed.

When you have no money that anyone wants. When you cannot buy the food that you need just to eat and survive. When you understand what the real value of caring for and about each other and the world around us, rather than how people see us, or what we have is what life is really all about. Perhaps then you will be ready for the change that we not only need, but which these people who have run the Country (and the world) into the ground have now made inevitable.

For as long as these very stupid and selfish people or anyone like them remains in control, it is only after everything has crashed and the system has completely collapsed that we can begin to look at anything getting better, of us all taking back our control and of building our new world from the grassroots up.

The legitimacy of strikes is born of a highly subjective truth. Greed has created every problem we have, but union barons are now falling over themselves to make workers just as bad

Over recent weeks, Secretary General of the RMT Mick Lynch has solicited a paradoxical feeling of respect towards a union baron, simply because in interviews he has appeared to take the Government position on wage rises clinically apart.

Whilst many commentators and journalists have been fawning over the eloquence of his speaking skills, the reality that few accept is that Mr Lynch’s greatest asset is his comparative ability to speak truth to power. Especially when the powers we have today do little more than obfuscate with invented truths, diversions and lies.

Like any good sales pitch, the union patter on the need to strike in order to force ‘reasonable’ wage rises has indeed contained some certain truths. Truths that many of us can relate to, as we watch prices rising exponentially almost by the day.

However, just as the politicians we have running the Country, who fail to consider the law of consequence and the bigger picture – rather than just responding to headlines or whatever is on the table today, fail to look beyond themselves, this union push to secure explosive wage rises can only fuel the speed of the race towards a complete financial and systemic collapse. Indeed, it is likely to cause the very people it is supposed to be helping the most pain.

Yes, the simple and most obvious answer to the cost of living crisis would be to give everyone a pay rise that matches the rate of inflation. A wild rate that is currently heading for ten and may even go as far as twenty percent.

Yet just as would-be Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s massive and unnecessary spending spree in response to the Covid Pandemic put inflation and the price rises of essentials on crack, raising wages continuously to meet what will likely now become constant price rises, will just make an existing problem and the pain it causes the people who didn’t create that problem even worse.

Few can and even fewer want to see or understand the real causes and the history of the problems that the UK now faces. It is just too easy to blame someone they don’t agree with or don’t like at a very shallow level, whilst making the fundamental depth and breadth of the corrosive issues and practices that are institutionally still at work, significantly worse.

Greed, or rather the drive to make money, accumulate wealth, ambition and attaining power, are the seedbed and growth accelerator of each and every problem that the UK – and much of the World – is now experiencing.

So long has this addictive malaise been at work, our whole system of governance and the systems, procedures, regulations and laws that relate to everything, now support the funneling of wealth towards those who already have more. Just so that they can obtain even more.

Politicians have always had the ability to stop this and to rebalance the system so that it works fairly and equitably towards everyone.

However, to todays weak-minded and glory seeking politicians, public representation is not what getting themselves elected is about.

If our politicians were to use the power and responsibility that they have – as they proved that they can do, when they took the massively damaging steps to shut everything down during Lockdown – they could stop the escalation of prices that do not need to rise in just one day.

They won’t. Because they are all in it up to their bloody necks.

Our politicians believe that their future depends on maintaining the status quo and continuing to do things the same way that they always have been.

With inept and incompetent politicians who lack even the basic ability to lead, and union barons who have been gifted circumstances that those who can change things now refuse to control, we find ourselves within a rich mix of events and circumstances that together with all the very different problems that we individually face are now adding up to a very dark, but nonetheless perfect storm.

The failure of those to act whose responsibility it is to act, coupled with the failure of others to show restraint whilst neglecting the responsibility that we all have to consider each other, does indeed foretell that the only destination we can reach will be an unmitigated crash or complete system collapse.

It is sad indeed, that none of these people who have the power and influence to do things that will help us, can see, value or appreciate what we all truly share in common. And that instead, the only thing that defines and unifies them is the commonality of their selfishness and greed.

Learn to see or hear the news and understand how much of it is opinion or distanced from facts

Fake news is a term that we have heard an awful lot of. But is it really all ‘fake’? Can we really trust journalists because they appear to be credible or represent a media outlet that appears legitimate from the outside? Are influencers and public personalities credible just because they have a platform with a ridiculous number of ‘likes’ or ‘follows’?

Speakers & ‘Influencers’ who need to invent credibility because their arguments have none:

Like most subjects being knocked around in the forums of public debate today, fake news is just another ridiculous umbrella term that has been coined by someone who wants to dismiss the arguments or facts being given by someone they disagree with, and they felt the need to be able to hide the inadequacy of their own views or ability to engage in a sensible debate by hiding it behind terms that people go along with – because the term sounds credible and they are afraid of what will happen if they don’t.

In this specific sense, throwing around terms like fake news just to dismiss someone else’s point of view is not only lazy; it is pretty much the same resorting to being nasty or calling people names when you are desperate to hide the truth in what they have to say.

Alternative Truths or Perceptions of the same experience or things:

OK, so fake news is a broader church. But that broader church is most often the difference that exists between one person’s truth, and the truth or true perspective on the same situation or topic as observed or experienced by someone else.

It doesn’t matter how persuasive an argument from one side can be. From the perspective of the individual, none of us experiences the same thing in exactly the same way. Indeed, even in an accident where only you are involved, there are always at least two truths: what actually happened, and then there’s how you experienced it yourself – ie your own.

Opinion presented as News:

Finally, there’s news which is actually opinion. And no, opinion is certainly not news in itself. Unless that is you were quite literally reporting something very subjective such as a story about a celebrity making a public statement about which political party they are going to support.

Regrettably, journalism within the mainstream has either become so poor or so corrupted by the wishes and aims of media platform owners, that very few of the so-called professionals that we access through supposedly credible channels every day, either don’t have the self-awareness to discern between what is the news and their own opinion, or they are deliberately pushing their opinions and abusing their position to influence the public in any number of different ways.

Learning to be a Critical Thinker:

Any one or all of the above may be at work within the news sources that you watch, read or listen to. It is therefore very healthy for us all to watch, read and listen with care.

Pick out the facts. Acknowledge and respect the content and presence of the opinion. But above all, do not let the opinion you have heard then influence how you feel about or how you have interpreted the news.

The easiest way to learn critical thinking – if you have not been taught and you don’t have the time to study the skill by reading a book or studying a course – is to follow and where possible read as many different sources on the same topics as you can.

Just by following different journalists and media platforms from right across the spectrum, you can quickly begin to appreciate the common themes – which on a universal basis will probably be the real news – and then begin to see the opinions, biases and yes – the propaganda at work.

Whatever you do, don’t let tribal thinking stop you from watching, reading or listening to media sources that are outside your ‘bubble’ or sit outside the mainstream. This is how echo chambers are created. It’s how we easily fall into group think. It’s how the destructive processes of relying on confirmation bias to legitimise views and perspectives is born.

It would be fair to say that even the most objective of writers will present their stories with a little bias – even if it really is the lightest touch. Simply because we communicate outwardly with the world based upon our past experiences and what information and interpretations of everything we have experienced we have then taken within.

However, once you can break down the structure of a news report, an interview or even a Facebook Post or a Tweet, you will soon realise that all forms of news and information about current affairs can be a much safer place that we are being told or than it would immediately seem.

Wake up! Politicians cannot and will not change. They will not stop the unfolding disaster that they have created!

Uncomfortable as it may be to accept, the whole of the UK is on a downward trajectory and has a date with destiny that is going to touch everyone’s lives and will be very painful for most.

Many of us look at everything happening as if the problems that we are facing are only the result of or are related to other things that are happening right now, today.

In fact, that’s what politicians and the establishment want and like us to think. Because it distances them from any of the responsibilities from everything that has happened, is happening today, and what will happen in the days, months and the years to come.

Yes, there are a lot of very greedy and self-centred people out there who are making the race into not only a cost of living crisis but a complete systemic collapse that will accompany it a lot worse than it should be, by deliberately exploiting watered  down rules and the incompetence of our politicians to stop them for doing all that they are doing.

It doesn’t matter whether its fuel prices, the obscene profits that energy companies are making when they complain that prices need to go up to cover wholesale costs, of the prices of food and essential goods in supermarkets that are jumping up purely, because the people responsible have nothing to stop them doing any of this, and they sleep at night with the idea that the government will simply fire more cash at us all to keep covering the incendiary cost.

They wouldn’t be able to do any of this, if we had politicians who held the responsibility of being our public representatives who were actually up to the job.

Instead, we actually have the complete opposite. So inept, incompetent and absorbed in their own race to obtain public glory by obtaining jobs that hold a level of responsibility, that our politicians do not understand and certainly do not want, the 650 people who ‘lead’ us don’t have the wherewithal to understand the consequences of anything they do.

Our politicians do not know how the systems of business and government really work. Worst of all, as they are not even leaders. Politicians do not have the ability to get all of the information and the wise heads together that they need to make decisions on our behalf in one room. And so, management of crisis after crisis by specialists from the most obvious sector, industry or area was born.

It is because we have had such levels of ineptitude running the UK (and in Countries across the World) for so very long, that we are in the mess that we are today. It’s why life for us all is now set to go very, VERY wrong.

Don’t be lazy and try to blame this on Brexit, on Covid or even Ukraine. Because by doing so, you are simply playing into these ridiculous people’s hands.

All of this mess was created by the people who are pretending to lead us today and by the people just like them who have been masquerading as our leaders from across all of the political parties for decades.

What is more, we really do have only ourselves to blame.

We have elected these people and every politician just like them. And if we want politicians to change, it is us and the approach that we all have to politics that cannot possibly remain the same.

Change starts with the way that we think about politics. The top-down hierarchy, the destruction it causes and the lives it is wrecking just so that the few can be happy has to stop.

Power must come back to our communities and reflect the lives of real people. Its time for grassroots up!

No Energy Company has the right to Guaranteed Profits #costoflivingcrisis

The story that we are repeatedly being told is that the price of wholesale energy is shooting up because of supply issues, not least of all our relationship with Russia over Ukraine.

We are told that we have to do our bit. That Ofgem has no choice but to raise the ceiling of the prices that energy companies can charge. Even though government cash handouts aren’t going to help within the much wider price rises within cost-of-living crisis context. And a ridiculous number of us are already borrowing, or going to foodbanks in the middle of summer, just so that we can have access to food.

And then we are told that the energy companies are enjoying profits that aren’t just wafer thin, but are actually obscene when put in the context that the government regulator Ofgem, is facilitating nothing less than a system that is clearly not only covering any genuine supply-side cost rises that might exist, but is also ensuring that the profits and dividends paid to the private interests that own what should be public services are being continually guaranteed.

Words cannot explain just how wrong and unjust this system and the processes that our politicians have allowed to be created and that are now punishing us all, really is.

Our politicians could stop this madness now and have the power to do so. But they won’t, because they don’t even understand how the system they are responsible for actually works.

What horrific. What terrible. What unnecessarily unjust times we are living in. Just so idiots can look good in public, create a place for themselves in Wikipedia and shout to everyone ‘don’t I look great in my elected job!’.

The best thing for everyone would be if every MP and Party we have stood down and agreed to never stand again. The problem is, big money would just replace them

There is a twisted hilarity to hearing the words come from your own mouth and almost watching them solidify as they cross the air, forming the sentence ‘Out of the two candidates running to be PM, Boris is by far the better choice’.

The problem for us all, is that when the choices you have from an entire Parliament and political system are so desperately bad, you at some point have to recognise that without a genuine alternative – rather than just another politician who looks and sounds different, and may well wear a different colored badge – we have actually reached the point in the downward spiral of this bolted-shut ecosystem where every change is just going to compound the problems and make everything worse.

Yes, the reality is that stark!

Whilst we cannot vote for a real Polternative, Boris and the entire muppet show or wannabes and out-of-touchies that surround him on all sides of the so-called political divide, are all that we can choose from. And this grim pool of self-servants will continue to block every seat to our Parliament until the disasters they are collectively responsible for have fully unfolded, and all of us outside of the Westminster bubble have woken up to reality and accepted that they no longer are the de facto choice.

We must wait, because they will not do the decent thing and walk away, as they ALL really now should. To do so would require them all to be very big and to have a level of self-awareness that is clearly absent, as the reality is that the UK would otherwise be nowhere near the situation that we now are in. Knocking on the door of a catastrophic downturn that may well signify the UKs role in the end of an entire world epoch, as we now arguably are.

However, this imaginary moment or lapse from their usual reason would be wasted if it were to happen today, as the big money that influences and controls everything that all of our standing politicians already do, would simply fill the void with other stooges who would do exactly whatever the money wanted them to do.

Sooner or later, we are all going to realise that the only way to break this seemingly perpetual cycle, where life is always dictated by how those in power, with influence or with great wealth believe it should be, will be to turn the entire top-down system on its head. To restore and rebuild our democracy with a focus on localism in its truest sense, from the grassroots up, and create a system of governance that puts human beings, life, the way we live, balance and fairness at the forefront of all public policy. You know; the way it should have always been!

It’s just the way it works, is no excuse

What makes you do the same things every day? What makes you behave with other people the same way that you do – even with someone new? What makes you accept things happening in the world that you know are wrong and are probably hurting somebody? What makes you believe that changing the world doesn’t have anything to do with you?

Even now, you will at some level have a twinge or even a thought that suggests these few words have hit a nerve, even if your inner voice is shouting something like ‘what a load of crap’!

Nobody wants to hear or read anything that speaks a deeper truth. Especially when we have convinced ourselves that the truths that we have been conditioned to accept by others are in fact ours, and that each and every one of us who is ‘normal’, does exactly the same.

That ‘normal’ is of course what we might otherwise call ‘the narrative.’ The narrative is all about what someone else wants us to think, how someone else wants us to behave, and most importantly, what someone else wants us to do.

The problem with all of this is that we are so convinced that we have to follow, submit to and in many cases promote that narrative, that we have completely lost touch with who we really are.

Never mind the talk of new world orders and WEF agendas. We are already behaving subserviently to the will, whims and choices of others, each and every time that we blindly accept that anything we do, say or think must be or correlate with what the narrative and the system around us tells us it should be, look or sound like.

You surrender your power every time you take instruction from someone or something else

Life is so busy around us that we rarely – if ever, give any thought to the part that we are playing and the contribution that we are making to everything that is now going wrong.

Harsh words I know. But we have all, at some point, fallen into the trap of thinking everything that happens, good or bad, is because of someone else.

Yes, you can make what seems to be the logically sound argument that this is the way that the world works. That everything outside of us is the reference point that tells us how our lives should be.

But this isn’t the case. We have all either forgotten, or rather been encouraged to forget, that we all have an inner compass that you might call gut feelings, your instincts or something else. And that when it comes down to having happy and rewarding lives, it is the messages coming from these real but nonetheless crowded out messages speak a certain truth about where every decision and therefore where our whole lives should be.

Think of it like this. If you were to think of yourself being blindfolded and being guided through the maze of life by a trusted friend, these messages or feelings represent the only source of guidance that you can really ever trust. The other voices and noise come from others who will benefit from each and every step that takes you the alternative way.

Of course, pictures are as noisy and as convincing as voices and sounds, as are unfounded emotions. And each time we listen to those words or follow the pictures and signs that appear to be outside of us – without even thinking about it and making it a fully conscious choice – we are surrendering our power to the will of others. We are taking a step away from who we should really be.

DIY Politics UK | The British Electoral System isn’t broken. But the people and parties who fill and block the British Political System certainly are

If we had a General Election tomorrow, you would be able to make a choice between different candidates and even different political parties. But you would not have the option of choosing an alternative or ‘polternative’ to the way of doing politics to what we have already got.

Yes, the people, the names, the brands, the political parties may all be different. But they are all motivated by beliefs, perceptions and by a very insular way of looking at the world and the people they are supposed to be elected to represent, that mean the words will usually be very different, but the end result for you and I will inevitably work out being the same.

The people who want your support for their parties and their ideas, but are at the same time not prepared to listen to you or involve you in the process that informs decision making are only interested in their own view of the world and what’s in it for them. They are all the same.

Weak leaders surround themselves with people who are even weaker than they are. Otherwise the darkness from their weaknesses will be exposed by other effective leaders light. This is why the quality of our politicians on all sides has increasingly deteriorated and why the door to allowing anyone into the system who has the ability to do anything other than what they are told to, has been very firmly closed and then bolted shut.

DIY Politics UK | The future of this Country depends upon you

Hard as this pill might be to swallow, we all bear at least a little of the responsibility for the mess that the Country is now in – even if your immediate thought is that you didn’t vote for any of the people who are in power today.

By going along with the way things work and operate, we are all giving it our consent. That means we are – without thinking about it – approving all the things that our politicians are doing and all the things that are politicians have done.

After all, it is public policy that has been made not just this year, last year, during the Covid Pandemic, in response to Brexit or even in response to the invasion of Ukraine that has created the problems we now have right across the UK.

No, the problems are not just about inflation, the covid underspend, or the clogged up borders many people are trying to blame on Brexit. It’s just lazy to think that way!

The problems that we have today, whether it’s the cost of living crisis, inflation, supply chain delays, housing shortages, the failing court system, the collapsing NHS, student debt and just about everything that is hurting people like you and I, is about public policy decisions that have been made over decades and yes, whole lifetimes and generations, spanned by politicians who have become further and further out of touch.

The politicians are now so far out of touch, that they really do believe that if they say the same things over and over again to enough people, their lies will actually become true.

We cannot reason with people who are only in it for themselves in this way, and we are being prevented from changing them for people who could lead properly and do the right things for all of us with the system as it is, because the system now exists just to keep itself propped up and closed to anyone who could destroy it by forcing it to change.

This means the change – that’s a better future for us all – must now come from the decision to act and then the willingness to do whatever is necessary from people like me and you – to see it all through!

We must reject the system we have, and start all over again.

Change cannot come before we all think differently. Change begins with the way that we think. Change begins with you!

DIY Politics UK | Can you really make a difference in UK politics?

Right now, you are probably feeling that you have zero influence on what happens in British Politics and that the rare opportunity you have to go and vote is worth little more than a joke.

You have good reason to feel this way and you are certainly not alone.

Most of us avoid talking about politics with people we don’t know, especially since events like the Brexit Vote that seemed to polarize everyone one way or another, and since political correctness, wokeness and cancel culture appeared to mean that not agreeing with the narrative has become some kind of capital crime.

However, if you were to discuss politics openly and with respect for the differences in the opinions of others, you would probably be alarmed at just how much the people who feel forced to be silent agree on, and how many things we have in common that cross current political divides and basically make us all the same.

Sadly, the British Political System – that’s the political parties and the people in politics – are so broken, and so out of touch with the realities of the people they are supposed to represent (rather than the people who they actually do), the chance that any form of public policy that might change something for you happening is really down to coincidence or pot luck.

Those in the system itself without power today, think change is all about changing the voting system itself. But what they don’t realise is that the reason nobody different is getting elected is because at a deeper level, they are all behaving and thinking exactly the same, and that by using systems like Proportional Representation, the lack of connection with our realities from politicians and decision makers would become even worse!!!

Democracy is only truly democratic when every part of it works in a completely democratic way. And the only way that we can refresh, renew and restore democracy in this Country is to reject the current top-down hierarchical system, turn the whole thing on its head and then rebuild democracy from the grassroots up – and that means people like you taking part within and as part of the communities you live in – IF we really want politics, government, all forms of legislation and the world that surrounds us, to work in a fair, balanced and fully in-touch kind of way!

Could Boris already be on his way back?

Yes, the Tories are slugging it out in one of their now notoriously snail-paced and party member focused beauty contests and the talk is already about Boris either being a name on the ballot paper or even returning next year – or in just a few months’ time.

But could it really be the case that we haven’t seen the last of Prime Minister Boris Johnson – after all the gaffs and the list of allegations of cover ups and lies that he’s told?

Well put it like this. Do you really believe that either Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak will be an improvement on any part of the governance that we’ve already got?

The rather hard and unpalatable truth is that Boris really was the best that we had available to be our PM when the Tory Members elected him in 2019, and despite all of the recklessness, incompetence and sheer lack of leadership throughout the period since he first walked into No.10, it remains the case that Boris Johnson is in all probability the very best option, out of all the options that we have actually got.

The reason for this paucity of choice, is a) based on the poor quality of the politicians in parliament and b) the realities of the current political system that mean the three known political parties and parties that would behave just like them when elected have a monopoly on taking the seats in parliament that we have got.

This whole sorry political class is just the same. The party, the colours, the words and the faces may be different. But they are all out for themselves. They are all only interested in getting to the top. They have no understanding of what real life problems for everyone beyond their bubble are really like. They have no understanding of people, of business, or what todays collapsing economy and supply chains are really all about.

When you have very weak leaders, they surround themselves with people who are weaker than themselves as that is the way that they believe they will make themselves look good. The same process has worked over and over again, with each generation of politicians becoming weaker, less able, less responsible and less in touch with the lives of the people they represent than before.

Things are as bad as they are now, as the result of a process that has taken years and decades to come about, and out of the MPs we have, or that we could have in No.10, the chances really are that Boris Johnson is and will no remain the best of the options that the UK has got – until we have an alternative option at a General Election that doesn’t include Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats or any of the other options that you may believe that we have currently got.

So, in answer to the question ‘Could Boris already be on his way back?’, the answer is almost certainly a very big yes. Because if you think things are bad now, just wait and see how bad they will soon become. What you can be sure of is that the race to the bottom that all of the idiots we currently have representing us are engaged in, will not end until they have destroyed everything that they have touched, and in a few months from now, the chances are that people way beyond the Conservative Party will be looking back nostalgically at Boris’ term in office, as if it was a golden age.
