The UK will go hungry as the food supply collapses. But Boris and all the political buffoons seat blocking our Parliament will continue to have their day…

It’s difficult to imagine that anyone in big business or government has any real concern about supply chain security, when the Conservative-friendly Daily Telegraph carries a story about the CEO of the UK’s Marks & Spencer retail chain now being on a 4-day week for a salary of £750K. Meanwhile, the real people at the other end of the wealth divide are working every hour they have and cannot even afford to buy food from one of the stores.

I will leave the timing and reasoning for this announcement, along with the raft of announcements from No.10 suggesting that our self-regalvanised PM is only now ready to his job to the reader.

But to say all of these deliberate distractions overlook the many elephants in the room and particularly the questions surrounding what happens to us all next would be comical, if it were not the fact that for the majority of us all, shit is about to get very real indeed.

Call me dramatic if you like. But few of us will accept that we are already in the process of a massive financial and systemic collapse until it actually hits us and we can feel the pain pushing into our own existence or life bubble in some way. Regrettably, that day will soon come.

However, whilst things like the housing market collapsing, or small businesses going bang because they simply cannot raise employee pay will inevitably hit or touch the lives of us all differently, there is one very profound and potentially very hard-hitting way that the collapse of the systems we currently take for granted is going to touch all of our lives in the same way. That’s the production, supply and the availability or shortages of food.

Before I go any further, it is important to get to the point that the supply of many of the foods that we probably all enjoy at home, from takeaways or when we go out to a pub or restaurant for a meal, are simply not going to be available in any of these ways anymore. Furthermore, this change to our lifestyles could well be pushing its way into our lives in perhaps just weeks or months from now.

The ingredients, the processing and the transportation of the foods that contribute to what might best be described as our very exotic, but nonetheless unhealthy diets aren’t just sourced from right across the world.

The foods we eat and the ingredients used to make them are processed here there and everywhere too.

The journeys that make up the pizzas, pies and puddings that we have all been conditioned to love crisscross continents and countries in various and accumulated forms. All before they finally reach the shelves of our local supermarkets or distribution centres, usually wrapped in a load of packaging that will immediately be thrown away, just as soon as they have come through our doors.

That the global supply chains that support and provide for all of this are collapsing right now is problematic enough.

But the real problem for us all that accompanies this collapse, is that even the majority of our most local producers (that’s local farmers and growers) buy the materials they need and then supply the meat, milk, cereals, vegetables and fruit that they produce into what is in effect part of this highly centralised operational business model.

Farmers and growers in the UK and across Western Countries do not produce or supply in a way that means that any of us could simply walk up to the local farm and buy or trade with the farmer to get the basic foods that we need, when everything that we know and take for granted about the supply of foods and goods today breaks down.

The processes that take raw foods from farms and turn them into the products that we love to eat and buy are massively complicated.

This complication has itself been encouraged and legitimised by the creation of many different industry-serving laws and rules. Not least of all by our friends in the European Union, that became just another way of dressing up greed-driven globalisation, but in a more politically acceptable continent-wide way.

What we or rather more importantly all of our seat-blocking politicians in Parliament are failing to grasp right now – whilst they keep on attempting to distract us with soundbites and other hollow scheme imaginable, is that we have a massive food crisis ahead of us. A food crisis that is looming large that will not be temporary. And that in terms of re-tasking, repurposing, redirecting, and reimagining the most essential forms and mechanics of our basic food supply chain – we are now critically unprepared.

Its not as if Farmers and Growers aren’t trying to make our politicians aware that there is a crisis coming either.

The issue with the politicians we have today is that everything they stand for, have bought and dragged us into and has been motivated by or is tied up in the money or greed based system that we currently have.

By even acknowledging that the focus of food supply must immediately become local, as part of the now essential drive to make the UK self-sufficient in all basic foods, goods and services in the shortest time, our politicians will be admitting to the wrongs of the part that they and many others before them have played in contributing to this mess over decades.

That however, is not an excuse for those in power and in our Parliament not to act now.

When we are all facing a change to our reality and a process of transition where there is a growing possibility that British People are going to starve, the public representatives that we have elected to look our for our best interests should be prioritising this change to local supply and UK self sufficiency in every possible way.

**NEW BOOK RELEASE**: The People First ‘True Economy’ & The Basic Living Standard

Hi Everyone,

Following on from the release of Levelling Level at the end of March 2022, and the series of Blogs that many of you have been reading, I am pleased to confirm that the next eBook “The People First ‘True Economy’ & The Basic Living Standard” is now published and is available to buy and download on Amazon for Kindle.

This eBook brings together all of the material I have written about the basics of establishing a new economy as we transit and do what we can to survive the coming collapse and crises, and then work to thrive as we emerge on the other side.

All of the material within the Book is available FREE to read in Blog form here,. But if you would like to read the pages offline and in order, the cost for the Book version is £0.99 in the UK or $1.24 in the US, with availability in other Regions too.

Wherever you are, I really appreciate you reading everything I have been publishing about Levelling level, The Basic Living Standard and The People First Economy. It is, after all, about us all!

Best wishes,

Adam

Here’s the Back Page, followed by a link to Amazon:

Following the Book and series of Blogs ‘Levelling Level’ which together provide an overview of how we can survive and thrive through the coming collapse or ‘Great Reset’ and make it our own, Adam moves on to provide a focus on the creation and basic principles of a new People First economy.

A Money Focused Economy and a People Focused Economy are mutually exclusive.

In this second book, Adam tells us that we now have a choice between the money based system that dictates everything today, or an economy that is built and developed around life instead.

The basis, foundation or principle building block of the new People First or ‘True Economy’ would be The Basic Living Standard, which is a benchmark or guarantee that every person is assured of the same basic platform of a self-sustainable or fully independent life:

An adult, working a full working week in any job at any level, should always be able to feed, house, clothe and provide adequately for their own transport needs, whilst providing basic necessities such as communication themselves, without the need for credit, loans, benefits or third-party support of any kind.

With all forms of business and government activity, public policy and decision making focused and developed around The Basic Living Standard, a people-centric way of living and experiencing life that is balanced, fair and considerate of all is not only possible, it brings everything and every part of life into alignment too.

Money or People-based values: It’s all up to you.

Where and how is it safest to invest now?

Whichever direction you look in, somebody somewhere will be telling you where to put your money. They are making promises about where your money will be safe. Some are even offering you cash back for signing up to loans, finance and other kinds of schemes.

The only part of the messaging put ‘out there’ for everyone’s consumption I agree with right now, is that we are heading at a rapid and increasing pace towards a massive financial crash.

What those so desperate to sell you financial products and even precious metals like silver and gold don’t tell you and probably don’t either realise or already know, is the coming collapse will not just stop with a recession, depression or anything else we equate historically with a ‘financial collapse’.

The collapse, crisis and the problems that go with it are going to be much, much bigger and unlike anything any of us have seen before.

In terms of so-called ‘financial investments’, this could prove problematic and very painful for many of us. Money and every kind of currency based on the current ‘FIAT’ money system, is quite literally about to go over the cliff, to where the intrinsic value of all of it will be found. (ZERO)

The collapse or rather the end of the money-based system or order as we know it, doesn’t mean that money or currencies will have no future use.

It is simply the case that in a People-centric economy, we will only value money and currency as the medium of exchange that it really is. We will no longer value everything and every part of life in monetary terms like we are doing right now and as we have done so before.

We are going to move from a system of finance and governance where money, material wealth, power and influence are the baseline of everything, to one where everything revolves around a reality where we put People First.

This means that the way we value everything today, whether it be houses, cars, holidays, clothes, qualifications, loans, credit cards or anything and everything that relates to money and how it can be used to demonstrate ‘wealth’ will not be valued as we have ever known it to have been before.

The money or currency that we have now will be worthless. And this means that those who are watching the horror story and dark part of this painful but necessary change arrive, will already know that owing money against anything we ‘own’ as we head into this crash, is not a sensible place to be.

You may be desperate to buy a house because you have been led to believe that house ownership is the only way to increase your wealth. But this story is a myth. Right now, that myth is quickly becoming a very dangerous lie.

Please think very carefully about taking on financial debt of any kind. And especially debt that either has variable rates of interest linked directly too it, or which you would be unable to immediately repay in full.

A period of doubt and uncertainty, along with what might be chaos for all:

The transition from a money based economic system to a people focused economic system will not happen in one stroke, or in one moment in time.

There is going to be a period of uncertainty over money and the supply of everything that we have become used to being able to access without any thought.

If you really want to prepare and invest for the future, it is preparing for what you will need to get through this stage of the crisis where you really need to invest and give yourself the springboard into what comes next.

This could be a very challenging time, with social unrest and civil disorder. Planning ahead now is one way that you will be able to reduce the risk to yourself and keep the people you care about safe.

Yes, the money that you have in your pocket or in your bank account right now, has value today. In fact, it will continue to have value right up until the very moment that it doesn’t. This will either be when you don’t have enough – because inflation and prices rises have just gone too far, or it will be when the things that you want are simply no longer available for you to buy on the shelves – because there is no longer any supply.

The best time to make provision for this happening is now. The real value in the money that you have available to invest today, is to invest it in making provision for yourself and the people you are responsible for, so that all the bases are covered then.

Food & Basic Essentials:

The key consideration is food. What will you eat when there isn’t any food on the shelves?

The best way to invest now, is to quite literally start growing your own. So that you have a supply of fresh, healthy food available to you regularly – even if you will always be eating the same things over and over again.

Start stocking up non-perishable items such as canned fish, beans, pasta and anything like that, which can be used many months or even years into the future, as long as it is stored properly and kept safe and dry.

Other items that it would be well worth putting by can be found in a list HERE.

Goods that have value as an exchange:

With money not working, there will be a period of time before the community can get a new system up and running. It will probably take much longer before universality of a local currency is restored.

During this time, bartering and exchange are likely to be the primary method of securing anything that you need from others, that you don’t already have.

Yes, you will probably have many things already that will not have the same value to you, when it’s a question of having enough to eat. But with the values that everyone has changing too, it may quickly become a shock to learn what little value something you value highly in financial terms right now, then really has.

The best way to equip yourself with a real, practical currency so that you are fully equipped and ready to get through this period of time, is to stock up on extras of all the things we have discussed above, so that you can trade them with others for anything you need but don’t have.

It may be as simple as growing more of the vegetables or the fruits than you need, because you have the space or the resources to do so, so that you can trade all that you cannot use for the things that you will.

It’s not the end of the World:

Yes, this all sounds very ‘end of world-ish’. But it isn’t and won’t be. Although it is likely to feel like it is for a period of time.

Change or transition of the kind that we are going to experience isn’t going to come without cost. But we no longer have any choice.

The decision made by politicians, business leaders, bankers and the world elites, to keep pursuing their ideals through globalisation and economics based on nothing more than greed, has committed us all to experiencing the crisis that is on its way next.

But it is within our power to survive and thrive.

You have the choice to remain ‘invested’ emotionally and financially in everything as it is. But you will lose the money and the value you believe that you are investing in any of the financial systems, products and devices that exist today, and what is more, the loss of the freedom that you believe you have and enjoy right now will almost certainly be lost – and that will be the real price that you will have to pay.

The alternative does indeed involve a very big leap of faith. But if you stop buying into the propaganda and take this opportunity to invest in yourself and the part you have to play in your community thereafter, the benefits will soon come to you in every non-financial way.

The People First Economy revolves around the mechanics of a real minimum wage: Welcome to the Basic Living Standard

The Basic Living Standard for All is based on what we would today recognise as the minimum or living wage.

Today’s minimum or living wage is just a sum that is set by government as the minimum amount per hour that every employer must pay.

The Basic Living Standard instead tells suppliers of essential foods, goods and services, what the recipient of The Basic Living Standard Wage will be able to pay for everything that is set within the standard. Suppliers will not be able to charge more for essential foods, goods and services.

It would be a legal requirement that every supplier provides essential foods, goods and services of some kind. ‘Luxury’ products must always be secondary purpose, not the primary purpose of any business or organisation. They will not be able to develop their primary business, based on what people can ‘afford’.

Through the creation and implementation of The Basic Living Standard, we will give back the real value that is provided to us all, by everyone who at any time contributes to the community by working in any basic employment or role.

It is essential for everyone to recognise the value to all of our lives, that the most basic of roles actually have.

People who pick fruit. People who empty our bins. People who fix the roads. People who stack the supermarket shelves. People who deliver parcels and takeaways to our doors. People who make and serve our coffees. People who serve us a pint in the pub.

These are the people who undertake all of the very different tasks that make our life experiences easier in the most real and everyday sense.

These are the people who must be recognised through the award of The Basic Living Standard Wage, so that contributing to all our lives by filling any of these roles can be a genuine and happy lifestyle choice.

A call-out to App, Platform and Crypto Developers who want to support their communities

The chances are that if you are one of the many people with an interest in new currencies, new ways of living and a new (or a return to) people-centric world and way of living who has been reading through Levelling Level, my blogs and material I am continuing to create, you will by now appreciate that the collapse that I have been talking about, is already well underway.

I cannot overstate just how challenging it is for many people to understand that systemic collapse doesn’t necessarily mean that absolutely everything stops.

Because it could very well be the case that not everything stops at the same time, many of those same people will still continue to believe that the world around us is continuing as it always had.

This creates two specific dangers for us all:

  1. That these same people will literally stand still, do nothing and allow those whom have created all the problems we have now, to dictate and recreate a system that continues to work only for them, and:
  2. That when things do reach a critical point and we are experiencing social disorder, people will not look to ourselves and to our communities for the answers and the solutions, and instead will continue to listen and go around in circles – back to point 1!

Whilst I have little doubt that the world elites have simply gone too far to turn everything around this time (as they did when they last lost control during the Great Financial Crisis of 2008), it would be foolish to fall back on confidence alone to mitigate the inherent risk, that plans like those being pushed through the WEF narratives will succeed.

Preparation now, is and will be one of the most effective ways to counteract and lesson that risk. But more importantly, it is the best way to help ourselves, then people we care about and everyone within the communities where we live.

There is no doubt, that the success of the Local Market Exchange and the True Economy hinge on building new app-based exchange systems for foods, goods and services, and that these are fully interactive and linked to or with the fully localised or Decentralised Currencies that we need create and correlate them with.

All Local Market Exchanges will need a localised or franchised version of an app that works as follows:

  • Operates within geographical parameters that are definable using existing postal codes or GPRS
  • Allow an item (or group of items) to be swapped directly for a rate of currency to be agreed, OR another item (or group of items) IF the two parties involved in the direct transaction should agree
  • Allows a source of community governance to set the values of basic or essential foods, goods and services, but prohibits any other kind of change.
  • Shows what essentials foods, goods and services are available collectively to the community transparently at all times.
  • Makes any goods that are not essential to community members, (which could be the surplus of otherwise essential foods etc.) available to other Local Market Exchange Franchises – in the order of prioritising immediate neighbours first.
  • Is based on a membership structure that requires sign-in and acceptance of all terms
  • That will either be or can quickly and easily become fully interactive with a new Local Digital Currency that is directly linked to the number of ‘members’ in terms of the structure of its value, with the ability to change or rescind those values on the membership status of each member of that community group
  • That is fully open source.
  • Each ‘franchise’ will be owned by the community that manages it, with a salary to be paid from the local governance body to those administering the system on behalf of it.

Some of you brilliant people will know how to do this now. I realise just how time consuming this could be. However, the contribution that you could be about to make – if you can do this, or contribute to its creation – could be incalculable, in terms of the new world that we have to work together to create.

I will be happy to work with any of you who are developers to write the governance notes and create the process diagrams for the Local Market Exchange system model, so that a formal barter and exchange system that interacts with the creation of a localised Cryptocurrency can be created and be ready for when we need it, so that none of us have only the choice of beginning from the start with no help from others, when things are in a real mess.

It doesn’t matter where in the world you might be. Everything is about to become local in a way that many of us have never seen anything like before. However, it is also vital that we work from those grassroots-up, to ensure cooperation at every level right up to the equivalent of worldwide and international in the way that we understand it right now.

Love is international and has no boundaries. Practical reality always meets us at the front door.

We all have a stake in making sure that each and every community survives and then thrives as we transit through the change from the dark world we are exciting and meet the challenges that we face as we open the door to the new world of balance, fairness and light that lies ahead.

Developing New Local Currencies (Cryptocurrency, DeFi)

The Basic Living Standard and Basic Living Standard Wage creates the basic principle or governance requirement for how a complete Local Market Exchange, True Economy and System of Governance will work.

Everything quite literally anchors to or hinges upon The Basic Living Standard, which is a universal benchmark, which in terms of the Basic Living Standard Wage, provides the basic exchange rate between all local or decentralized currencies, or any umbrella, centralised or connective currency that then can link them all.

A currency that works on a fair and balanced basis must correspond to its own system of governance.

The fairest, most balanced and most democratic form of governance is where power it attributed and responds in its most local form.

As such – despite the commonalities between different currencies, the power to govern local currencies must remain local – not for the purchase of essentials – but so that non-essential goods, can always be exchanged at rates which correspond to the idiosyncrasies of production in their very localised form.

Beyond the practicalities of the requirements of the Local Market Exchange system, it is also ethically correct to keep the balance of power that accompanies use of digital currencies and finance in their most dispersed, local and transparent form, so that they cannot be used as a leverage tool within an oversized governance system that relies upon coercive control.

Local Decentralised Finance (DeFi) in the form of Local Cryptocurrencies that are linked only by the Basic Living Standard, assure our personal freedom from tyranny in any kind of form, in the most basic sense.

That process or supply chain must always be as simple as its possible for it to be. It is through the accumulation of additional stops or steps in a supply chain that don’t add value, but add additional and unnecessary costs, where so many problems begin.

The roles that we have will be redefined and reconsidered as the evolution of our new system takes hold. In fact, some of the jobs that have been highly regarded for all the wrong reasons during this dark age that is now ending, will simply no longer be ‘needed’ and will no longer have any reason to exist.

The pressing need for Local Market Exchanges and Local Market Exchange Platforms

One of the reasons that we should all feel confident that we can survive and thrive through the coming years and months, and that we can all play an active and positive part in creating the new system that is balanced and fair for all, is because much of the creative and innovative thinking is already out there that will build every part of it.

It is just the question of what, why and who people will be doing these things for that has to be settled before work on our new world and The True Economy can begin.

When money doesn’t work for the majority of people, we will have reached a point where things could go a number of ways.

Please look kindly on anyone who loses their shit in these circumstances. Desperation doesn’t excuse poor behaviour of any kind. But it does provide good incentive to organise anything and everything that we have available to our community and the people within it, as quickly as we can.

The first step to maintaining order, is to pool everything that the community has available and to be fully transparent about what the community has, and how it can and will be shared.

If it comes down to a situation where people are going hungry, transactions cannot be based on exchange, and must be based on the simple act of sharing what we have and don’t need for our own immediate requirements, and not on what others can ‘afford’.

The next step is to create a system of fair exchange, that functions on what everyone can give, or what they can trade or barter.

The principle value of this exchange system, or Local Market Exchange, will be based on the time, skills, experience and basic labour that it took to provide whatever the essential foods, goods or services being exchanged might be, or what it would be when the complete process of putting that food, those goods or services would be, when considering the process from end-to-end.

The creation and development of the Local Market Exchange will take place in two primary stages:

  1. Bartering & Exchange of goods, supplies and services that the community already has available, or which it has the ability to grow, manufacture or provide, and
  2. The creation of a new localised currency linking, anchoring or pinning transactional value of foods, goods and services directly to the number of people and/or the contributions (input to the system) that they make.

Starting anew: The economic phoenix without any need for ashes being involved

So, lets imagine we have reached the point where the financial system as we know it has collapsed.

Money simply doesn’t work. What happens next?

Well, people need to eat. People need to be able to buy essential food. People then need to be able to secure the basic essentials that they need too.

With no money in circulation, or no money that has value in circulation, people will begin to exchange or swap what they have and have accepted they don’t need, or can do without, for the things that they do need and that they cannot do without.

No law, regulation or threat from any authority will stop this.

When people are going hungry or need to provide, they will do whatever they can to secure whatever it is they need, and swapping, exchanging or bartering is a lot more civilized than what will happen if theft or violence becomes the next step by default.

The good news for us all, is that whilst the system may have collapsed around us, the technology and infrastructure are unlikely to have disappeared. The issue we face is that the technology and infrastructure isn’t currently set up to work in a very localised or microeconomic way, when this is how we need technology, infrastructure and the governance that oversees it, to help all of us.

A True Economy is all about People. Not money. Not things.

The foundation of the new economic system ‘The True Economy’ will be the value that we place on people in a very practical and measurable way: The input or contribution that each person makes.

The ‘True Economy’ is quite literally all about putting People First.

By basing and then building our entire economy on the value of the input or the contribution that each person makes, we will create The Basic Living Standard for All.

It will be the priority of our whole new system of governance to maintain The Basic Living Standard, as by doing so, the majority of the social problems that we have, won’t just disappear or be removed from view. They will be gone for good.

The Tipping Point of the coming Economic & Systemic Crash

Whilst a systemic and financial collapse may not appear to be or have the stop-start feel that the ending of one system that will have to be replaced by another suggests, the reality we face is that for what may only be a short period of time, none of the currencies we use either in physical or digital form, will have any value when it comes to being able to secure anything that we need to buy or survive.

Despite what your immediate thoughts might be after reading that we might find ourselves having to function without any form of money for a period of time, it is within or as part of the collapse of the financial part of the current system where the seedbed of the greatest opportunity for getting everything right for our future exists.

When boiled down to the purest elements or the nuts and bolts of what the current Top-Down hierarchical system really is, it is all about the belief that everything we do or that we can achieve in life is based on money and the accumulation of material wealth, and the power and influence that supposedly goes with it.

At the point when circumstances and practicality tell us through our experience, that this belief, idea, principle, motivation – or whatever you want to call it, no longer works, we will have reached a seminal moment when the light can shine through on the darkness of our current reality, and our true values and understanding of what life is and how it should really be will have an open door to changing life for the better for us all.

I’m not trying to make light of what happens when the world we know that runs on money in every way, simply stops functioning because money doesn’t work anymore.

It will be hard. In fact, it will be very hard. But adversity really is the mother of invention, and it is at this point that we have the opportunity at local, community level to establish a new True Economy, based on Local Market Exchanges, that will feed into and provide the basis of how our entire new system of governance works.

The real value of Money and Cryptocurrencies (DeFi) today

Crypto or Cryptocurrencies have become increasingly popular in recent years. But in their current form, they have a massive and potentially terminal flaw: Today’s Cryptocurrencies are worth ZERO.

Today’s Cryptos work on the same basis as the FIAT Money system that they were intended to side-step.

The value of Cryptocurrencies is based only on what anyone believes.

For many of us, this is a very difficult message to understand. We only have to look at news in the media that suggests Cryptos such as Bitcoin are worth tens of thousands (x10,000) of £Pounds, $Dollars or the equivalent in many other currencies or monetary terms to see what people think they are worth.

Yet Cryptocurrencies are not tied to anything of value. They do not have anything of value linked directly to them. Even the arguably sensible idea of only creating a limited or finite number of them doesn’t answer the fundamental questions or realities of what a currency or any form of money is, and how they should really work.

Money is a unit of exchange. Money is a value transfer tool. Money is a medium and nothing more.

Money has become the benchmark that is set against everything in our lives, because making us believe that its value is real has benefitted someone else’s greed for wealth, power and influence in some way.

With the FIAT Money system about to collapse, we are all going to go through the process of realising the real value of the things that we genuinely need, as opposed to the things that we want.

That process will lead to us rediscovering what the real value of money and any form of currency really is.

When money or currency of any kind can no longer be used to buy anything, either because we simply don’t have enough of it, it’s not tangible, or because what we need is not available to buy, circumstances will force us to appreciate what the value of the things that we need really is.

We can have a money-focused economy, or we can have a people-focused economy. But we cannot have both

The really hard bit of the coming collapse or crisis that through things like price rises and the cost of living crisis can already be seen to be underway, is understanding, accepting and then acting upon the reality that our destructive relationship with money is all about the way that we think.

We quite literally have to do ‘cold turkey’ to get over the money-based addiction that is destroying us and the world around us.

And as part of that process we have to accept that as is the case with every other addiction, there really are no different levels of addiction involved.

There is no halfway house.

If we continue to maintain our belief in money and continue to award it the value that we do in any way at all, we will damn ourselves to repeating exactly the same mistakes of the past, no matter how much we do to correct everything in life as we have the opportunity to do so right now.

Where and how is it safest to invest now?

Whichever direction you look in, somebody somewhere will be telling you where to put your money. They are making promises about where your money will be safe. Some are even offering you cash back for signing up to loans, finance and other kinds of schemes.

The only part of the messaging put ‘out there’ for everyone’s consumption I agree with right now, is that we are heading at a rapid and increasing pace towards a massive financial crash.

What those so desperate to sell you financial products and even precious metals like silver and gold don’t tell you and probably don’t either realise or already know, is the coming collapse will not just stop with a recession, depression or anything else we equate historically with a ‘financial collapse’.

The collapse, crisis and the problems that go with it are going to be much, much bigger and unlike anything any of us have seen before.

In terms of so-called ‘financial investments’, this could prove problematic and very painful for many of us. Money and every kind of currency based on the current ‘FIAT’ money system, is quite literally about to go over the cliff, to where the intrinsic value of all of it will be found. (ZERO)

The collapse or rather the end of the money-based system or order as we know it, doesn’t mean that money or currencies will have no future use.

It is simply the case that in a People-centric economy, we will only value money and currency as the medium of exchange that it really is. We will no longer value everything and every part of life in monetary terms like we are doing right now and as we have done so before.

We are going to move from a system of finance and governance where money, material wealth, power and influence are the baseline of everything, to one where everything revolves around a reality where we put People First.

This means that the way we value everything today, whether it be houses, cars, holidays, clothes, qualifications, loans, credit cards or anything and everything that relates to money and how it can be used to demonstrate ‘wealth’ will not be valued as we have ever known it to have been before.

The money or currency that we have now will be worthless. And this means that those who are watching the horror story and dark part of this painful but necessary change arrive, will already know that owing money against anything we ‘own’ as we head into this crash, is not a sensible place to be.

You may be desperate to buy a house because you have been led to believe that house ownership is the only way to increase your wealth. But this story is a myth. Right now, that myth is quickly becoming a very dangerous lie.

Please think very carefully about taking on financial debt of any kind. And especially debt that either has variable rates of interest linked directly too it, or which you would be unable to immediately repay in full.

A period of doubt and uncertainty, along with what might be chaos for all:

The transition from a money based economic system to a people focused economic system will not happen in one stroke, or in one moment in time.

There is going to be a period of uncertainty over money and the supply of everything that we have become used to being able to access without any thought.

If you really want to prepare and invest for the future, it is preparing for what you will need to get through this stage of the crisis where you really need to invest and give yourself the springboard into what comes next.

This could be a very challenging time, with social unrest and civil disorder. Planning ahead now is one way that you will be able to reduce the risk to yourself and keep the people you care about safe.

Yes, the money that you have in your pocket or in your bank account right now, has value today. In fact, it will continue to have value right up until the very moment that it doesn’t. This will either be when you don’t have enough – because inflation and prices rises have just gone too far, or it will be when the things that you want are simply no longer available for you to buy on the shelves – because there is no longer any supply.

The best time to make provision for this happening is now. The real value in the money that you have available to invest today, is to invest it in making provision for yourself and the people you are responsible for, so that all the bases are covered then.

Food & Basic Essentials:

The key consideration is food. What will you eat when there isn’t any food on the shelves?

The best way to invest now, is to quite literally start growing your own. So that you have a supply of fresh, healthy food available to you regularly – even if you will always be eating the same things over and over again.

Start stocking up non-perishable items such as canned fish, beans, pasta and anything like that, which can be used many months or even years into the future, as long as it is stored properly and kept safe and dry.

Other items that it would be well worth putting by can be found in a list HERE.

Goods that have value as an exchange:

With money not working, there will be a period of time before the community can get a new system up and running. It will probably take much longer before universality of a local currency is restored.

During this time, bartering and exchange are likely to be the primary method of securing anything that you need from others, that you don’t already have.

Yes, you will probably have many things already that will not have the same value to you, when it’s a question of having enough to eat. But with the values that everyone has changing too, it may quickly become a shock to learn what little value something you value highly in financial terms right now, then really has.

The best way to equip yourself with a real, practical currency so that you are fully equipped and ready to get through this period of time, is to stock up on extras of all the things we have discussed above, so that you can trade them with others for anything you need but don’t have.

It may be as simple as growing more of the vegetables or the fruits than you need, because you have the space or the resources to do so, so that you can trade all that you cannot use for the things that you will.

It’s not the end of the World:

Yes, this all sounds very ‘end of world-ish’. But it isn’t and won’t be. Although it is likely to feel like it is for a period of time.

Change or transition of the kind that we are going to experience isn’t going to come without cost. But we no longer have any choice.

The decision made by politicians, business leaders, bankers and the world elites, to keep pursuing their ideals through globalisation and economics based on nothing more than greed, has committed us all to experiencing the crisis that is on its way next.

But it is within our power to survive and thrive.

You have the choice to remain ‘invested’ emotionally and financially in everything as it is. But you will lose the money and the value you believe that you are investing in any of the financial systems, products and devices that exist today, and what is more, the loss of the freedom that you believe you have and enjoy right now will almost certainly be lost – and that will be the real price that you will have to pay.

The alternative does indeed involve a very big leap of faith. But if you stop buying into the propaganda and take this opportunity to invest in yourself and the part you have to play in your community thereafter, the benefits will soon come to you in every non-financial way.

Our way of life should be our economy. The economy should never be our way of life

In the Book Levelling Level, we discussed the crisis we are heading into which will revolve around not just the collapse of our financial system and the money we use, but also a complete collapse of everything we know involving the way that business and industry run, and even our government and political system works too.

The most difficult message to covey as a speaker, and to receive as a listener is anything that makes clear that we have all played a part in what is happening to some degree. Even if it is just down to the products we buy, or what we do or don’t do when its time for us to vote.

Use the words economy or economics, and you will probably have the word ‘money’ come immediately to mind. But the idea that money = the economy isn’t really the truth.

The truth is that money is just a part of our economy. It plays a part, just like all the other things that we do and interact with in any relationship that we have with the world outside our door.

It is because of the reality that life is the economy, that it has been very easy for us to accept that there is a monetary value to all things, and that anything that cannot be given a monetary value, simply has no real value at all.

Life has literally become all about money. Money – and everything to do with it, whether it be power, influence, ambition and anything that can be considered to be material wealth – is how our world qualifies absolutely everything. But the price has been not only that we have forgotten, but that we also place no value on who we really are.

Money is an addiction. An addiction like every other, whether it be alcohol, smoking, drugs, gambling or anything else. An addiction that brings nothing but misery whose lives are on the arse end of its power, and the deception of being happy and in control of something that has complete  control over you, for those who believe that they are still getting a buzz.

As with people, our culture, community, and entire country (and World) has become addicted to the money myth and everything that surrounds it too. What we are experiencing now collectively are the days of that drunk or drug addict which is we have together become, rolling around in the gutter, thinking all about the next ‘fix’, but with no idea what and who we really are.

Those who have experienced the realities of addiction, know what comes next. Remove the metaphors, and the collapse of everything we know is now knocking at the door. This is who; this is where we are right now.

Logic tells us that Boris should go. But we are a long way from logical times…

The one thing that the Tories have got right in the past two and a half years, was to wait until after the Queens Platinum Jubilee Celebrations were over, to announce that a Confidence Vote would be held over the tenure of the current occupant of No.10.

Whilst I suspect that the magic 54 letter mark was reached well before the end of last week, the fact is that people outside of the Westminster bubble really needed a little time away from the darkening skies that are forming around our reality. An opportunity to remember what being happy and being happy within a community can really feel like.

This isn’t likely to have been possible, if the ongoing question of Boris Johnson’s future was to have continued to have been the focus over the weekend. And it wasn’t as if with talk of him suddenly finding solutions to the NHS crisis, the man himself didn’t give it a try!

However, uncomfortable as the reality may be for everyone to accept, right now, there simply is no better option for any of us than to continue to have Boris Johnson as our PM.

Yes, it’s a controversial view. Johnson really is the antithesis of everything that a good British Prime Minister and public representative in a serious democracy should ever be.

The problem we have is that the Conservative MPs and Ministers that surround him, as well as Kier Starmer and ALL of the other Opposition MPs offer nothing that is any better than what we already have.

In fact, with any of the alternative options that we have today, we have to reconcile ourselves with the reality that things could quickly become even worse than they are already destined to be.

Like it or not, Johnson is nothing more than the figurehead of an entire political culture that is rotten from top to bottom. A political system that has self-interest and the greed-based culture that is destroying everything we know, firmly at both its base and at its core.

Even a General Election wouldn’t remove these people. It would not remove the threat that they are. Politics and power to do anything good in the UK is currently held up behind a closed door.

The Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats effectively have a monopoly on who gets into Parliament.

The three main parties are gatekeepers, allowing access only to those who follow their closely shared ideals which only look and sound the same.

The political parties preclude and obstruct the entry of politicians who have the genuine ability to lead. Today, there is zero hope of us having leaders who will never compromise themselves and their responsibilities to others by being nothing more than yes men.

A massive problem for us when every decision for MPs revolves around saying yes as just another step to the top. But then the person at the top can only say yes when it’s time to lead, and leadership is also a lot about knowing how and when to say no.

Outside of our Parliament, the options for the next General Election – that may now come a lot sooner than we were expecting – are not any better.

Those that talk up ‘alternatives’ believe that the alternative we need is as simple as giving the electorate a choice that means the incumbent parties are simply swapped or replaced.

But we cannot go on with anything or anyone that represents the greed-based culture and the thinking that underpins and fuels it like we have now and have always had before.

Top-Down doesn’t serve any of us anymore. It never has and we are now at reaching the end of that line, and hitting the buffers is going to come with a crash.

Changing the Prime Minister or the government for just another version of what we already have will make no difference before the runaway train reaches the end.

The problems our politicians have created are now too serious. Printing more money – which will just speed the disintegration of everything up – is the only tool in their kit that any of them now have.

Logic tells us that a changing of the guard would mean that new faces will be ready to solve all the problems. But they won’t.

This whole political culture is invested in everything that is wrong with the UK today and doing the same things that caused all the trouble all over again will not lead to different results.

The MPs that we have will not stand aside and let new people and new thinking take their place.

We therefore have little choice but to wait until circumstances force their hand and push them out of the jobs they so wanted and the responsibilities that they now wish they didn’t have.

In the meantime, it’s all about damage limitation. That very regrettably means it’s likely to be in our better interests to leave Boris and his massively difunctional administration in place.

The World can be focused on money, or it can be focused on people. It cannot be focused on both.

Man cannot have two masters.

We either value everything to do with money or we value everything to do with life.

The biggest challenge we face in the coming months and years, isn’t the cost-of-living crisis, the financial turbulence, the monetary or systemic collapse. It is the process of understanding, accepting and finding the resolve to live our lives in what seem to be an unfathomable way. That of putting People First.

Many will read this and argue that putting people first is what they already do. But they don’t.

In fact, if wealth, power and the accumulation of money in any form or in any way, comes into our thinking as the priority in the way that we approach any part of life, the reality that we all have to face is that our thinking is part of the problem and is therefore part of the cause of all the problems that we collectively now face.

This is not a question of having things or money of any kind. It’s the question of how and where our values are genuinely placed.

If we always consider the impact of what we do upon others, and what the consequences of our actions upon others will always be – not just in the room, but what the impact on the next person to visit or to follow after us might be, there will still be enough of everything for us to have and to enjoy our lives, but everyone else will always have that very same opportunity too.

We can only have a society, culture, way of living and experience that is fair, balanced and considerate of all, by putting People First in everything that we do.

We can quite literally live our lives with our focus only upon money, wealth, power, influence and everything to do with it. Or we can live our lives putting people and our relationship with others first.

There is no middle ground. There is no ‘so many parts of one’ and ‘so many parts of the other’. Our focus will either be on money and selfishness with an inevitable cost for others – no matter the part we play. Or our focus will be on people and putting people first in everything we do, knowing that we are always doing the right thing for everyone, and that by doing so, we are actually putting our own values system first.

What we have to accept is that rejecting the Money Based Order won’t result in loss. In fact, we have everything to gain. The only real difference is that we will not see money and the things that revolve around it in the same way again.

Money is our master now. But it is people that we should always be putting first.

The Money Based Order – The part we currently play

Sadly, we are or were all in on the con.

The very clever thing about the Money Based Order, is that its addictive nature thrives because it plays to one of the darker and most self-destructive parts of human nature, which is to put ourselves first.

When we indulge selfishness of the Money-focused kind, it simply doesn’t matter how big or how small the gain or advancement we perceive the accumulation of ‘wealth’ or ‘power’ in our lives to be. We are meeting the needs of that addiction, and somehow have the perverse message playing like a soundtrack that tells us all that we are on our way to the top.

As this is the way that every part of life now works, we have reached a point where pretty much everything we do, we look at or even the interactions we have, are all based on the bottom line of what value will come out of that interaction for us.

The strange thing is that by playing along with the workings of the Money Based Order in even the smallest of ways, we have dedicated ourselves to a pathway of addiction. An addiction that has the ability to change our lives and destroy our integrity at a personal level immediately, whilst at a community, cultural or national level, the whole process can and has taken decades or centuries to reach the outcome of its various plays.

It is Money, not the Technology that it finances, that dictates the way we behave in a Technological age

The myth of technological advancement is that innovation only exists to make money and that life must change to fit around it.

The truth is that innovation exists to improve and enhance the ways of living that we already have.

Those who have owned or financed technological change have simply harnessed and continue to harness it to make more and more profit.

Meanwhile, their actions have directly resulted in lowering the quality of life or even destroying the lives of the very people that every technology – used without the focus being on profit – could be utilised to improve.

The Money Based Order lives and functions within the lives of us all

I have alluded to a history of the Money Based Order that covers hundreds of years, simply because it is important to understand how established the system that we have today really is.

In fact, so established is the Money Based Order both around us and within our lives, that many of us have still not awoken to the reality of how our attachment or rather our addiction to the world that qualifies each and every part of our existences based on money, really is.

The house we have, the areas we live in, the holidays we have, the car we drive, the career we have, the degree we qualify for, the clothes we wear, the phone we have, the streaming services we watch, the number of TV sets we have in the house – and what having or failing to have these things at any of the levels that they all seem to come, all play a massive part in the way that we value ourselves, how we value our friends, and how we believe everyone else looks upon us – when in the overwhelming majority of cases, each and every one of the people who have the views we are worrying about, are doing exactly  the same things as us.

Whilst generations of marketing men have spent amounts of money that even today’s billionaires could never earn telling us otherwise, this whole way of looking at life and living our entire existence is all about what we want. None of it is about what we need.

Why the Money Based Order or System is collapsing now

Even a system that is built upon a value set that is completely wrong, has rules that must be obeyed if it is to survive and last.

As generations of politicians, business leaders, bankers and other elites have passed, they have increasingly lost sight of the very framework that protects them.

They have taken their positions for granted, and increasingly failed to put enough back into the system to ensure that the myth still works for the very people they are abusing through their acts.

The combination of Globalisation and the adoption of The FIAT Money system took their greed too far, with the result that the divide between rich and poor has never been so far apart.  

‘Wealth inequality’ quite literally leaves people living and experiencing entire lifetimes with their productive focus being only upon what they need to do to keep their heads above water.

Life for far too many, has literally and unnecessarily become all about the fight to survive.

The people who struggle at the hands of The Money Based Order have done nothing wrong.

Many are innocent victims of a system that quite literally exists on the basis that for some to obtain and maintain excessive material wealth, it necessarily follows that others must fail or go without – so that the few can quite literally win and keep on winning.

But it doesn’t have to be this way and it never did.
