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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
