The Global Supply Chain only works because of lies. It’s breaking now, because the truth is catching up with it

If you read the papers, listen to or watch the news, or follow news on social media, you will be aware of a narrative that is increasingly anchoring supply chain issues and shortages of all sorts of things on the fallout from the Covid Pandemic, the Invasion of Ukraine and even Brexit.

It is because supply chain disruption has been involved with all of these events of what has followed them, that this very specific truth is being rolled out as the excuse for the systemic crash or ‘The Great Reset’ that is now underway.

After all. The greatest lies or marketing plans inevitably hinge on the tiniest of truths.

Sadly, We are all destined to wake up from the unreality of a world where everything has just appeared in our lives after a click or a short trip.

The Global Supply Chain has been built on greed and a convenient lie.

We have just accepted that it is cheaper to make and grow the things that we need on the other side of the world and then transport them to our front doors more cheaply than it would be for them to be made or grown and then sold to us at the end of our street. We believe that it has benefitted us to do so.

We have never though to ask the question, ‘Do we really need these things if they are coming to us from this far away?’

We have never asked the question, ‘How can it be possible for these things from far away to be cheaper than they would be home-made or home-grown?’

We have never asked the question. ‘What is the real cost to all of us?’

Why our broken system has lasted for so long

Some of you, probably many of you will be thinking that a system that works ‘successfully’ for over 50 years, cannot really have all that much wrong. But that will probably be because you haven’t yet been knowingly touched by the fallout from the collapse of a system built only on greed, as you can and will be.

The foundation of this entire system, has been making money and how to improve or develop the ways to make more and more money, along with ways of increasing the profit margins from what everything within the system already does.

Rather ironically, it has been the same time and distance from the hardship caused by wars and nationwide events that allowed the ‘elites’ to manipulate us all into believing this created world was real, that wooed them into their own false sense of security. One that encouraged them and the people desperate to be and become like them, to overlook the basic rules of contingency planning, of making reasonable provision against risk and of not doing things to make even more money – not because they should, but because they can.

The whole global economy or global economic system has been built on luck and not judgement. The luck being that until 2020, there had been no nationwide or world events that had been big enough to blow the whole house of cards down. That is, before some other clever device or fudge could be invented that could arrest the timeline decline of the system, or keep it going long enough so that the incumbent elites could wash their hands of it, pass it on to the next generation of greedy bastards and proclaim ‘keeping the lie going is now your problem, not mine’.

Levelling Level | Going Green: The happy consequence of Levelling Level

I have not specifically focused on climate change, going green and the fallacious government policy they call ‘Net Zero’ itself for a reason.

That reason is that by addressing or embracing all of the changes that the Levelling Level process will require, many of the issues relating to the damage that our unsustainable way of living has been causing the environment will be addressed.

Yes, many changes lie ahead, and we will have to embrace new technologies and habits as they arrive. However, the changes to the way that we live and think that may not seem to be linked to green issues today play a much more significant part in the problem than it has been in vested interests to allow us to be aware of or to think about.

As we divorce ourselves from the system of old, the changes will buy us the time to take a much more realistic and practical approach to adopting any changes that are then left for the UK (and the World) to embrace.

The Establishment is pulling out all the stops to maintain the narrative that everything is fine

In the Terence Trent D’arby (Sananda Maitreya) song ‘If you all get to Heaven’, sits the immortal line ‘Old men’s cigars puff up the wars to protect their fuck ups again’.

Whilst one of the alternative truths growing considerable traction in recent years has been that the United States has in effect created wars around the globe, simply so that the corporate interests that fund the politicians can keep profiting, the reality is that war has been used as a very costly distraction and as a way of taking attention away from the public, from what is really going on around us all at home.

As I write this in early 2022, Russia has just invaded Ukraine. It is already clear that Western Governments are going to use the crisis as a way to cover up the damage that they are responsible for. Prolonged mismanagement that has led to all the problems that we are facing now.

When people at the top have gained so much through a system that exists on the basis that it exploits the greater part of the population without them realising that they are being used, it is in the interests of those people at the top to ensure that the  truth never comes out a) so that they don’t get blamed when it fails and b) so that no one will attempt to stop them doing all that they can to return the whole system to how it previously worked – even when they are too stupid to realise that it is now impossible to do.

Lies only work until you don’t believe them anymore

The good news is that the money lie is coming to its end. In fact, the purpose of this book is to discuss what happens next and the good we will all have the power to do both for ourselves and for others, after the lie is fully revealed and this damning chapter of our history comes to its end.

The bad news – or at least the temporary bad news – is that we all have to wake up from the drug addiction that we have to wealth and money. The change that our politicians and leaders have made inevitable is change the change that we need. But the circumstances that accompany the process of that change will require that we all do cold turkey, and that will be painful for a period of time.

Yes, events happening around us are dictating change and the pace of that change. It is our experience of those events and the light that they will shine on how politicians, decision makers and influencers really behave and how they have been behaving, that will expose the corrupt system that we have to thought-changing truth.

Neoliberalism: The intoxicating lies of the powerful

Regrettably, our Politicians are too stupid to understand what the ideas underpinning neoliberalism are really all about.

Neoliberalism and free markets are all about bringing more wealth to those who are wealthy already and nothing more.

Neoliberalism when adopted at state level is a tool to sanitise and legitimise selfishness at the highest level.

Neoliberalist thinking has helped make it ok to do anything that is legal, even when that legality exists because it has been created only by and for those who benefit from it.

The end result is that others suffer at incalculable number of levels or degrees of separation. Because ethics have been replaced by the idea that you should do things because you can and not because you should.

Neoliberalism is basically a philosophy of creating misery and exploiting others so that those who are able, can benefit from that choice.

Neoliberalism is the modern form of mass slavery, where oppression and suppression has been sold to everyone as freedom and choice.

The myth that less help results in there being more for the poor

Neoliberalism perpetrates the lie that egalitarian living can be achieved by letting the ‘knowing few’ run riot with minimum restraint. That by allowing them to control everything through their own interpretation of any rules, everyone and the public good will be truly well-served.

Yet the reality is that by deregulating markets and financial activities to the extent that they already successfully have, the power that should be in the hands of legislators and policy makers on behalf of us all, has been passed to private interests whose priority is profit and not the public interest instead.

The extension and growth of Neoliberalism is dependent upon reducing the reach and impact of government at every level.

It doesn’t matter what process is followed or becomes necessary for the outcome to be achieved.

Smaller Government is a Neoliberalist aim. The outcomes for the people who need good governance most will only get worse under the Neoliberal view of smaller government, as even the status quo will no longer be maintained.

The real result of the European Referendum Vote

Up until the summer of 2016, the tried and tested methods of creating and controlling us with an establishment narrative had always worked.

Those methods were expected to work with the European Referendum Vote too.

Lies and stories were concocted and mixed up with a few threats and a little fear. It was all focused on maintaining the easy way of living and the nice experiences that normal people would otherwise lose if they didn’t conform to what the establishment wanted to achieve from the Vote.

Yet the script that had been written for even greater integration with the European Union didn’t work.

The majority of the British People found instead that they identified with a different way of interpreting the future and voted democratically for the UK to leave the European Union.

The result of the Referendum set in motion what was to become a three-year battle between the democratic will of the people and the unwritten agenda of an establishment and a perceived loss that it still refuses to understand.

Brexit was born.

Levelling Up – The Myth that Money & Markets make everything right (for the Conservatives and the Right)

‘Levelling Up’ is a clever term – and it’s meant to be so.

For most of us, levelling up sounds very much like we are going to see everything we experience being pushed upwards. It suggests that the point of balance in our lives is somewhere higher than where our current experience actually is.

But what does ‘levelling up’ really mean?

Is this the zombie apocalypse in reverse?

Have you ever thought that the characters that find their way into our imaginations through films and storybooks are metaphors for the way certain people behave around us in real life?

Just as you are told you should never invite a Vampire into your home because it will enter and feed off your blood, you should always keep very negative people out of your day-to-day lives as familiarity with them can soon lead to them sucking away your will to live!

The really funny thing about the negative people I am talking about here, is that very few of them – when challenged and questioned about their behaviour –  will have any conscious understanding of how they behave, nor the impact upon others from what they do. The suggestion that some people are happy in their own misery is very true.

So does the same rule apply to other behaviours in other people and the ones that we ourselves exhibit or project outwards towards the world outside of us and towards everyone else?

Yes. And we certainly don’t know we are doing it most of the time when we are, because it’s the way that we have been conditioned to think!

So what has this got to do with the so-called ‘zombie apocalypse’ you might ask.

Well, the reason I decided to write about this today was the experience that I have been having since the Lockdown began, whenever I have had the opportunity to talk to other people either online, on the phone or at 2 metres beyond arms length.

The conversations have all been similar. Whether it has been the owner of a business employing 750 people, a neighbour or one of the floor managers at the local Tesco I often say hello to as I pass them by.

What I have learned is that what we all have in common is that we see Coronavirus and the impact of the Lockdown on our lives very differently to how it is being talked about, discussed and presented to us with images on TV and by the media. But there is also a compelling feeling that for the time being at least we have to go along with all the fuss about the NHS and the social distancing measures in some way – even though we are worried – if not already being hurt by what is happening. We certainly don’t believe that things can begin to get better before they have got a whole lot worse.

It seems to be the case that the Government and the media have become so good at creating a particular view or version of events, we really do fall into the trap of believing that what happens on TV is a real representation of what is happening to everyone in the world outside of our own families and homes. We really think that what we are experiencing personally or to those immediately around us is something that is only happening to us or is a feeling about everything that relates only to our own point of view.

We are all falling victim to group think and behaving like zombies in some way today, simply because we have learned to accept and respect whatever the media and the government throws at us as if it is the only reliable truth. So much so in fact, we even end up questioning ourselves!

The big problem for us all is the messages we accept as being 100% real about the world outside our door, about what is happening and about what everyone is doing are all contrived. They are a construct. A tall story. A script that becomes our reality just because we have always believed that we have to play along.

But we don’t.

When the Government and the media are actually getting a lot of their response to the COVID-19 emergency not only wrong, but very wrong indeed, we should perhaps all begin to question whether we are listening to the right sources of information for guidance.

We should be asking ourselves whether our gut feelings, our intuition or what the quiet and un-emotive voice in our heads is telling us about all that we are experiencing is actually right and much nearer to what everyone else is thinking and feeling about all of this than what the establishment would like us all to believe.

The Crisis that the Government is creating for us all as an avoidable response to a national emergency that would have only ever really hurt a comparative few, will touch us all very soon. That is if it hasn’t already done so for you yet.

When the time comes that we each realise just how hard things are now going to be for the foreseeable future, whether its because we have lost income, lost our job, lost our home, lost our business or lost something else that is important to our quality of life that we wouldn’t have lost if the Government had created the Lockdown, it is important to know that none of us is left thinking or believing that we are alone.

We are not.

The stories that the media and the politicians might be telling us will make it sound like everyone else is seeing things in a different way. But they aren’t right now and they won’t be then.

Instead of being turned into zombies by a virus like the ones we heard about in a storybook or on a film, this could be the reality where it all goes a different way.

Coronavirus and the Government’s response could well be the catalyst that flips us all into becoming part of a Country-sized national community where Government works openly for us all rather than being the false democracy that it is today, where the establishment manipulates the many for the benefit of only a few.

It could be the zombie apocalypse in reverse!

 

 

 

 

The Nightingale ‘Field Hospitals’ look more like a cynical publicity stunt by the day. No Government should treat the public like this at any time and certainly not during a time of National Crisis

April 17, 2020 2 comments

As white elephants go, the Nightingale Hospitals are likely to be the very worst we will ever see.

With a Lockdown imposed upon the Country that feels more and more like the early stages of a Police State than a restriction on daily life that is designed to help, the ‘temporary’ end of our liberty was firmly sold to us on the basis that it was the only way to enable the Government to do all that was possible to ‘protect the NHS’.

Of that dubious sales script, one of the most contrived-to-be-convincing excuses the Government made for the requirement of public support for the Lockdown was the time that it was going to take to set up, equip and then open the Nightingale Hospitals, the first of which was set up in an Exhibition Centre in London’s East End.

Once it had opened, it didn’t appear to be the case that the London Nightingale was immediately struggling from over use like many established NHS Hospitals around the Country that are still throwing everything that they have available at COVID-19.

In fact, some started to question how these ‘Field Hospitals’ would actually be staffed, given that the twenty thousand or so retired and de-registered medical staff who answered the call to come back could at best only meet what is known to be the NHS’s pre-Coronavirus and therefore immediate or existing staffing shortfall.

In the past 24 hours, the real story has began to find its way out.

Instead of the Nightingales being the genuine additional capacity to support the whole of the NHS to fight the COVID-19 Crisis that we were told by the Government that they would be, the facilities they offer are only being made available to specific cases and the patients who are most likely to survive. Furthermore, a place will only be offered if the transferring hospital provides the staff to care for that patient too.

On reading this, you are probably wondering to yourself ‘what is the point?’.

Well it’s a good question to ask. Because the pretence for this ridiculous Lockdown was all about helping the NHS to cope.

Now, with three weeks of this highly dubious Lockdown already passed, it is clear that the additional space to manage the so-called ‘peak’ of the Pandemic in the UK was put in place with the intention of it being no such thing.

If the Government is picking and choosing which patients its flagship ‘Field Hospitals’ are going to treat, it can only mean one thing: That the Nightingales have been set up as a publicity stunt to provide figures and data that can be manipulated to show that the Government is achieving results when all the time it is not.

Meanwhile, the Lockdown has already began to destroy jobs, incomes, businesses and lives as the support that the Chancellor has provided does nothing to help people and protect the economy in the way that it should.

Then there are the patients suffering medical conditions and diseases like cancer are being sidelined or their treatment delayed by Hospitals up and down the Country as existing staff and resources are re-tasked to concentrate on prioritising Coronavirus patients.

So even when it comes to addressing the medical aspects of this National Crisis, the Government is telling us all one thing, but doing nothing like what it is saying or indeed anything like what it really should.

There was no excuse to shut down the whole Country under the pretence of supporting the NHS in the first place.

But to have done so when the Government itself is not doing all the things that it should to help either the NHS or the millions of people and businesses that it has effectively put under house arrest offers no logical, responsible or even reasonable excuse.

The more we see of this Government and its clear inability to cope, the more we see the real truth unravelling and finding its way into the light. It is clear that these Ministers and their advisors are making it all up as they go along.

All they are doing is based upon how the things they do and say will look, rather than what the results will be. The Nightingales are a vanity project, clearly all about the Government being able to tell everyone how great they were at dealing with the COVID-19 Crisis.

But this approach is helping nobody. It is just another part of the almighty and escalating mess and chaos that the stupidity of the politicians who are supposed to be leading this Country has created.

For what is happening now on the Johnson Government’s watch, there simply isn’t any legitimate excuse.

The NHS has been in need of desperate top to bottom reform for years and successive Governments have failed to address the real systemic issues in the Health Service over a long period of time.

Good leaders would have recognised and accepted this in the early stages of the Crisis and done everything necessary to ‘come clean’ and explain to us all that there was simply no way that the resources and staff would be available or ready in time to head off or prevent every death that it might be have been possible to prevent, had everything already been in place.

Instead the Government has taken us all on a wild goose chase. They have given false hope and false promises, removed our liberties, set fire to the economy, and fired the starting gun on the destruction of quality of life for countless millions, probably for many years to come.

All because they have no idea what to do, and stupid is as stupid does.

 

 

 

 

 

A deal at any cost is no deal at all

February 1, 2019 Leave a comment

Abraham Lincoln once said ‘nearly all men can stand adversity. But if you want to test a man’s character, give him power’.

Sadly, when our Members of Parliament do not pay attention to how the events they are involved in unfold and how other MPs have behaved around them as they have in recent days, weeks and months, it is hard to imagine that they consider the lessons provided by such figures from history to be worthy of any great thought.

Regrettably, such an approach on the part of our Elected Representatives comes at most disadvantage not to them, but to us, the People who Elected them. And we have the right to expect them to learn not only from history, but also from every opportunity as each and every one of them comes along.

Today, this avoidably chaotic Brexit process has reached a point where pretty much everyone outside of Westminster, despite MPs best efforts, has the true measure of what our MPs are doing. What their motivations are and what is now going wrong with British Politics full stop.

The general population may not be positioned or indeed be able to elucidate the reasoning of their position and views as eloquently as some of the Politicians who spend the better part of their lives in the media view.

But neglecting the reality that the views and thoughts of each and every one of us are as real, if indeed not more so than any of our MPs themselves, is a position that every Member of Parliament should now be considering in light of how clear the desperate nature of our Prime Minister’s and her Government’s Position on Brexit has now become.

We are faced with a situation where MPs should know from a catalogue of past experience that the EU was not going to play ball over reopening May’s ‘deal’. Just as it should be very clear to them that this is a Prime Minister prepared to do and say anything to stay in Office and keep her legacy in the form of her Brexit Withdrawal Agreement untouched and very much alive.

It is in light of this reality that we now see the possibility of pork barrel politics emerge, or what is in effect the prospect of individual Labour MPs being bought off with financial sweeteners for their Constituencies coming in to view.

With democracy in the UK so obviously in peril due to the behaviour of MPs already, the advent of this approach by a Prime Minister, who should long since of had the dignity to step aside, is both dark and worrying indeed. Not least of all because it is us, the same people who are being ignored by an Establishment preoccupied with stopping a meaningful Brexit, who are yet again being treated as if we are mushrooms. Treated as if it is ok to attempt to keep us in the dark, and that being fed on a diet of informational horseshit is all it will ultimately take to get whatever plan they have passed without us realising what they are doing.

However, the Prime Minister and all those with her who are willing to trash our democracy should be aware of one very big point.

We can all see exactly what they are now doing, and a deal at any cost is no deal at all.

The Prime Minister and her Government does not have a mandate to push through her flawed idea of Brexit at any cost. Neither does any majority constructed of our sitting MPs.

Any form of Brexit based on anything other than the genuine Will of the People – no matter how those against it choose to interpret it for their own aims, will not be legitimate.

As such it could, should and almost certainly would be overturned if they should appear to succeed in achieving what are clearly dubious aims.

It is what the cost will be to this Country, to our People and to our future because of this ridiculous, irresponsible and self-serving behavior on the part of Politicians who should know a lot better, that should now be of the greatest concern.
