We have a lot to be worried about right now. Yes, the immediate issues over Government handling of the Covid Pandemic have taken precedence in the minds of a great many. Whether it’s fear driven support for Government Policy or facing the Government down because you see all that they are doing is wrong, these diametrically opposed views seem to have taken over life.
Either of these views of the Covid Show featuring Boris Johnson and the Parliament that enabled him offers an emotive, but equally myopic picture of what the issues are.
The endless focus on being right and arguing about the justification for the continuation of lockdown and social distancing measures or trying to convince others of the real reasons for the Government doing all of this, are leaving the majority of us completely blind to the very significant issues that are going on. Issues that are likely to be worse for all of us in the not-too-distant future but haven’t as yet come into full view.
This rather bizarre situation where the problems we should all really be worried about are out of sight, so out of mind, isn’t new. In fact, as far as the hidden impact of the Government Covid Policies are concerned, this has been the big part of the unspoken story all along.
Whatever anyone thinks or whatever anyone tells you, the Covid Pandemic wasn’t created and put into use as a clever tool to help usher in a new world regime and all that happens next. Or at least not where Western Governments are concerned. The leaders of these former ‘democracies’ are after all only just 17months into the newfound delights of absolute power – the elixir of life for wannabe world kings who get to the top at a time of national crisis and find themselves in complete and unyielding control.
There is no reason to believe that as the Covid Pandemic kicked off, there was any desire on the part of our hapless politicians to grab power and control over the population and then use it in the ongoing menacing way that events have shown us they have.
But once they had tasted real power and realised that the British Public were prepared to do the right thing and actually celebrate it – going out into the street and clapping every week to salute them, they quickly understood just how easy it can be to use power in whatever ways they wanted to, and promptly decided they should use it to retain that power. The natural progression with such corrupted thinking being that they now see a green light to use it to gain control that they don’t even need, in any one of a number of different ways.
Many people, running pubs, small businesses and small organisations along with the people who work for them, began to feel the negative consequences of what happens when you have people who don’t think about or understand the lives of others in charge of a Country like ours very early on.
Whilst business owners started to have nervous breakdowns or kill themselves and countless other people suddenly found themselves in a living hell, hidden from view as it was all unfolding behind closed doors – the people with the problems caused by the Lockdowns that were easy for the politicians to see, quickly had money by the sack full printed and thrown at them. In the circumstances it was no surprise that they all felt as happy as they could be.
The colossal amount of money that Rishi Sunak and the Johnson Government have created – literally out of thin air – has blown the lid off and given the lie to the way that the whole financial belief system works today. It is only working now because of a shared belief in it between those that lead us and those who control it.
However, the impact and consequences of the pain they have inflicted upon others over decades because of little more than greed, is now catching up with them. Rishi Sunaks wild Covid spending spree is on the verge of pushing the UK over the financial cliff. It is literally not a question of if, but when.
We could get into the detail, but it is probably best summarised as this:
Money is not a thing. Money is not anything. But the financial system that underpins the UK (and World) economies treats it like it is.
The whole financial and monetary system is a con. But the con has depended for nearly 50 years on the majority of the population perceiving money to be real and not the unit of exchange that it actually is.
The Financial Crisis of 2008 raised questions and made people uncomfortable when they could see how Governments fell over themselves to bail out private banks with money nobody knew that they had.
The Covid Pandemic has seen those same Governments print so much money and increase national debts to such extreme levels that the smoke, mirrors and esoteric knowledge we are told only economists and those who run the markets have, is about to have time called on it.
People are waking up to the great swindle that money and everything financial now is.
You can be certain that the Chancellor and those working closely with him will know and understand exactly how close to the edge things really now are for both the UK and the World economy too.
But instead of taking the chance to start doing things the right way – as even now it would be possible for these politicians to do, the Treasury and the Government are looking for ways to solve the crisis that they and their kind have created – primarily to save their own necks. And yes, their tool of choice will once again be control.
The creation of a centralised digital currency run by the Government offers this political culture – drunk on its own power – an opportunity to protect itself and a way to ride out the coming financial crisis by using blockchain technology to quite literally track every atom of money that exists, along with the transactions and those who possess it too. They will be able to delete, freeze and take money from everyone as they see fit and if we still believe that money is real after it has become fully digitised, we will literally have become slaves under their control.
If you need to see evidence of how this is going to work, you only need look to China where the Government backed Crypto Currency ‘The Digital Yuan’ has been developing long enough that they are now banning Bitcoin and making it the only crypto that it is legal to use.
It would be tragically ironic if the obsession that Government and Business has with China (China = Money) made them blind to reality that the Chinese Government might be playing us in a game of cat and mouse, over the longer term, running on a pathway to world domination all along.
The question most pertinent to our fate and whether we can stop what began as an accidental tyranny, is whether the economy crashes before this Government has time to fully implement a British digitalised currency as part of what will then become a Chinese-style social credit system, before the economy crashes and they no longer have that choice.
It feels like I now write and tweet endlessly about the realities of this wider situation that for far too many others seems to be invisible. It’s frustrating to know that it is hiding menacingly in plain sight.
Logic tells us that by speaking up and protesting with numbers, the whole thing will immediately come to an end and those who have been doing us wrong will change direction and put all those wrongs right.
But that’s not how this all works. And certainly not now the politicians running this Country have had that taste of absolute power that has pushed them down the slippery slope of tyranny and megalomania too.
The threat to them and their power has to be real before they will take that threat seriously in any way.
The only way to create that threat is to stop thinking that we can stop them in their tracks today by shouting loudly or by protesting. We must refocus all our energies to build an electoral alternative to this political culture, that will be created with the aim of running credible candidates in every constituency at the next General Election. But with work starting now, so that we are ready to fill the gap if the coming financial crisis hits much sooner than 2024, and the collapse of this totally self-obsessed government opens the door.
I sympathise with anyone who reads what I write and says, ‘we can’t wait for the next General Election’. The truth is that none of us can.
The problem is that the things happening cannot be stopped by anyone who doesn’t see the danger. There are also very inconsiderate people who can and are blocking the way to changing any of this.
This means that the only hope we have for change is to remove them and get them out of the way.
This can only be done peacefully at the next General Election with a political solution that works on behalf of everyone.
The alternative to doing this peacefully is revolution. But revolution doesn’t guarantee who will be in power once these power obsessed miscreants have gone.
There is only one way of approaching this that in the long term ends up with things being better for us all.
