The Lie About Balance & Fairness

We are told that the system we have is the fairest that we could have. That by having so much emphasis on ‘the markets’ and the role that money plays in everything, we can keep having more and more of the best things that we have ever had.

But the system isn’t fair, because it is driven and motivated by greed. But that greed is not just at the top. Those at the top have been able to do all that they have done to benefit themselves, because  they have used the system that greed has created to convince all of us that we can keep accumulating little pieces of all the things that they have.

The irony is that even within a system built on and servicing greed, there is a point of balance, which once exceeded, may appear to keep working. But it is in fact on its way – through increasing and accelerating disfunction – to ending in a massive and potentially epoch defining crash.

A systemic collapse lies ahead that results from years of political self-interest. It wasn’t planned, so trying to prove it’s all a conspiracy will just help the establishment make us believe it was

People are waking up to the wrongs that our Government and the establishment they represent have done in large number today, purely because the political classes have gone too far during the Covid Pandemic. The elites still believe that they are entitled to continue behaving the same way without excuse – all whilst they and their ideas are systematically driving our country and democracy into the floor.

Frustratingly for some, the growing number of people with their eyes open to just the some of the things going on is still a very long way from reaching any kind of critical mass. This means that whilst the few signs of change – marked by Government U-Turns such as the mandated jabs for NHS Staff turnaround – is looking good, the UK is actually remaining a very long way from where it needs to be. And that’s just looking at the situation right now, today, with things as we are experiencing them and as they stand.

The problem that we have and the difficulty for us all, is that with the diversity of opinion on how the Government is working and how it has behaved over the past two years very divided, the reality is that even with those apparent leaps backwards, the inept and draconian Johnsonian Narrative, and with it the very self-serving, yet rudderless form of leadership that we have had throughout the Covid Pandemic remains.

People genuinely believe that because Boris Johnson and the Tories remain in power, and continue to do whatever they like unhindered, because there must be some kind of conspiracy at work.

Furthermore, many of those same, very sensible people are buying into the idea that the words spoken by the World Economic Forum (WEF) that created the Great Reset Narrative, and with it phrases such as “You will own nothing and be happy” means that tangible evidence exists that everything happening now has been planned and that there is a worldwide, world-government-creating conspiracy well and truly underway.

To be quite fair about it, the stunts that the Johnson Government have pulled such as playing with the vulnerabilities of normal people by elevating the fear of Covid to that of instant death are very sinister to anyone who has taken a breath and taken a proper look. Continuing on to then implement many draconian measures just to keep their neck-saving narrative functioning and at work, does indeed look like the work of Machiavellian tricksters who are in no doubt about what they are doing.

Yet the real reason that the Tories and all of the political parties that are seat-blocking good leaders from being able to get into parliament and make our democracy work, is the wrong people have been in power and positions of influence for a very long time.

Indeed, those across an establishment of politicians, industry and banking leaders have made it their goal to assume more and more of the powers that should collectively be ours, whilst making every challenging situation that we face across the UK go from bad to worse. It just doesn’t look that way because politics is now the end in itself rather than the means, and the truth about the results that follow so many big words have a strange habit of never really looking all that good.

Every public policy or policy of any kind that affects the public has consequences for us all.

We have had decades of rules, regulations and laws made at the centre, by those in Government to benefit the MPs and Political Parties themselves, as a minimum to get themselves into power or reelected. But most of the time, it has been to benefit and support their friends and the people they want help from or want to impress.

Meanwhile, the results for everyone else outside this golden circle have been to create more and more pain, inequality, less opportunity, poverty and even hunger, when none of these problems have ever been necessary at all.

The unsustainability of the situation was for a very long time simply hiding in plain sight. But then Covid came along and put afterburners on a plane that was already on a downward trajectory and heading for a horrific crash.

It is easy to believe that a world that appears run in every way possible just to benefit the few at the expense of the many, is built upon bomb-proof strategic plans and systems that once in place are locked-in and cannot be undone.

But this is all a delusion. At best, the system they have built upon greed and the belief that money and material wealth are everything is nothing more than a house of cards.

The system they have created bit by bit is best described as being a massive chain of dominoes. One that was put in place, decision by decision, choice by choice, time after time.

There are no foundations or glue sticking any of those dominoes in place and as soon as the first one falls – just as if it were to be flicked by someone deliberately setting the whole chain in motion – they will fall one after one and the whole system will go.

Selfish, self-serving, greed and profit-orientated decisions have ruled the motives of the elites in politics, industry and banking for pretty much as long as anyone can remember. Everything they have done, everything they have changed or influenced any politician to do, every rule they have created to favour their sector, has put one of those dominoes in place.

FIAT money, quantitative easing, globalisation, neoliberalism, centralisation, lean manufacturing techniques, global supply chains, credit scoring, hedge funds, central banking, just in time, too big to fail, cheap money, endless debt, monopilisation of traditional (mainstream) media, minimum wages, complicated tax laws and regulations, life on benefits, privatisation of genuine public services, devolution, creation of the European Union and just about every system or way of doing things that has already or is contributing to making life feel very unfair, have all come into being because somebody with influence has changed the way that the world works for us all so that something somewhere works even better for them in some way.

Bit by bit, it has added up to wholesale change. But there was never any design, and it has been lucky for those benefitting and tragic for everyone else that it has taken this long for the end to be in sight in this rather troubling way.

The more savvy of those riding high off the power trip that this heavily funneled system gives them at the top know and understand the fragility of the system. They live in genuine fear of what happens next if the unsustainability of how everything works collapses, and their power to control us all goes.

It is no coincidence or accident that the announcement of ‘The Great Reset’ came from the WEF in the Summer of 2020, once the Covid Pandemic – and the measures that many different governments around the world imposed, were in play.

The self-serving at the top knew immediately that the myths of global trading and manufacturing, worldwide travel, cars for everyone, cheap energy, mass movement, low cost everything, cheap money were about to be exposed.

The self-serving at the top have realised that to retain their power and control over everything that happens next, their priority would have to be the creation of a narrative that makes everyone (who isn’t in on it) believe that the hell we are already starting to go through is all part of a plan.

The self-serving at the top have concluded that their future power and control is based on the very clever premise; That as and when we hit the bottom from the coming crash and begin to climb back up to whatever our ‘new’ world looks like on the other side, the changes in the way that we live and interact with each other – which their greed and stupidity have now made inevitable – have all come about because of their own careful design. And that successful buy-in of this message using their traditional media to convince everyone will mean they have the right to retain power and remain in control.

The conspiracy narrative therefore serves their purposes extremely well. Conspiracists do after all spend the majority of their time talking up and trying to convince everyone else that the conspiracy exists.

Meanwhile, none of the conspiracists are taking steps or any kind of action to focus on the opportunities that the now inevitable change will bring. They certainly won’t be doing anything constructive to start building up any kind of political vehicle or movement that the elites will know and identify as being a threat to any of the political parties that their influence owns.

Just as waiting for a bus for hours and then three turn up at once makes the passenger standing in the rain wonder what the hell they had themselves done to deserve such bad fortune, there are many different and very complex factors that have influenced all the things that are going on around the world today.

But it is chance – not design, that has turned them all towards the point in the same direction and to have created a situation where they all appear to have turned up on the very same day.

The only factor that really is random in all of this, is what will turn out to become the event or trigger that will be the one that proves to be the first domino to fall. The catalyst that then in turn pushes quickly against them all, one after the other, leading to the systemic collapse that comes when everything that has been built up for all the wrong reasons over many decades has come into play.

Will it be war in Ukraine or Taiwan. Maybe the collapse of Chinese Company Evergrande. Perhaps the collapse of the US Stock markets. Or could it be something else that the mainstream media isn’t even really talking about that will prove to be the straw that finally breaks the camel’s back?

We simply don’t know. And whilst it would be silly to try and even predict dates, the one thing we can be sure of is that this inevitable systemic crash is coming soon. Life as we know it even now after 2 years of Covid mismanagement will quickly begin to look very different for everyone, just as soon as it has.

The choice that we all have relates to what we do and what we accept from the people who lead us today, when that period of pain, revaluation and the time for necessary change comes.

If we accept the establishment narrative – or what we should perhaps more accurately call the truth of the elite, it is the same few and the same faces that will continue to hold all the levers of power. The self-serving at the top will be happy to dictate the rules of a new age. One that will continue to be all about them, what they can gain and how they can control us to keep achieving it.

However, if we snap out of this and refuse to accept the narrative that the establishment wants us now to believe to be our own truth, and instead accept that we have the power and the opportunity to create our own, we can build our new future together. We can make the best of the changes and difficult circumstances ahead that will return our sense of proportion, fairness and care for all others and use these rediscovered community values as the building blocks of a system that is there to help and look after everyone, but above all, a Country built on local communities that all work fairly for us all.

The future is bright for digital finance, but today’s Crypto Currencies are as worthless as the FIAT money system they intend to replace. Money must find its place and function without misplaced belief:

Whilst my interests, writing and commentary in the public sphere appear overtly political, I recognised long ago that every part of life feeds into the cauldron of politics. It’s what the more academic amongst us would colloquially call political economy.

Within a highly febrile environment that increasingly makes less and less logical sense, it makes sense to keep an eye on financial and economic commentary online amongst the channels where real news is still available. It is here that the utterly bizarre nature and the cold-hard reality underpinning trends which are affecting the UK and the whole world, seem to have completely escaped public consciousness and any form of collective rational concern.

We are experiencing a period of history where there are so many elephants in the room, it seems incredible that society hasn’t already been completely flattened by the now trampling herd.

That isn’t to say that a travesty of great magnitude isn’t on its way.

Amongst the dangers that 50 years of FIAT Money, its impact upon financial dealing, the markets, normal life and the Bitcoin-driven rise in cryptocurrencies that were supposedly created to counter it is where much of the coming chaos is likely to begin.

Money isn’t real. Money isn’t a thing. But the belief that we have been conditioned to have in it and the obsession we have with material wealth and the way our lives and status can now be measured by it all to facilitate profiteering and greed certainly perpetrates the myth that it really is.

Money is valueless. It began as a unit or practical means of exchange and up until 1971 when money was de-linked with the value of gold, it at least had a form of tangible value attached to it. Even if that tangible value was based on collective mutual trust to the existence of a precious metal in remote form that we all knew as The Gold Standard.

Creating a situation where that assumed trust in there being real value underpinning the transactional notes and coins in circulation was manipulated to allow people believe that every penny that they have in their pocket or bank accounts has a measurable value. However, in practice it has now been over half a century since it was any such thing.

A FIAT or ‘created’ Money system was always going to be open to abuse, once those ‘on the inside’ had figured out how to get any rules and regulations. Over five decades they have consistently influenced legislator change so that they could effectively create more money and malevolently creative systems to generate more of it whenever they liked. The Great Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2008 was just a taste of what is to come and was only perceived as not being worse than it was because Governments created money for the banks and therefore massive public debts for us that there has been a mysterious mainstream lack of will to talk about.

As this perverse system has increased a cultural belief that money is a real thing, with the perception that it is inherently more important than the product, service, employment or output that generated it, a process of addictive gambling has increasingly taken place. Finance houses, markets and central governments too have effectively created more and more money without that money itself having any practical (or logical) link to gold, products, services, employment or anything else. It has created a growing disparity between what people who have bought into the idea believe to be real and what actually exists. In terms of value, people literally don’t know or understand what is real anymore.

It is a system where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer simply because the rich get more and more of the money as it increases in circulation, whilst the money that the poor have loses value against the goods, services and property that have explosively inflated prices that continually remain easily affordable to the rich.

Whilst it doesn’t fit the narrative of the establishment, big business or the financial sector for everyone to understand that money is created as they see fit and that debt is effectively just a means to enslave the unknowing poor, those responsible have used the publics unwitting trust of historically revered occupations to engage in what beyond the safety of the rules they have created for themselves would be recognisable as criminal acts

No one openly talks about any of this, and the mainstream media leave the subject well and truly alone. The truth of what they have and what they are doing sits conveniently hidden in plain sight and anyone who questions it likely to be cast aside and awarded a tin foil hat as they are unceremoniously thrown back into the masses of the great unknowing.

Yet there are increasing numbers of very intelligent, often highly educated but nonetheless ethical people who are becoming aware of the mechanics of how the travesty of what we call money actually now works.

Indeed, it was one such person who saw the value in creating a finite or limited amount of a currency that sits outside of the influence of arguably corrupt central governments, big business and the financial sector. It was this whole sorry story that brought Crypto or Digital currencies into being primarily as Bitcoin and now in different guises that are growing in number daily.

On the face of it, the blockchain technology that underpins crypto effectively means that even the smallest fraction or percentage of one crypto coin or equivalent unit has or can have a unique identification. It appears to give tangibility or reality to cryptocurrencies that money in the FIAT system doesn’t currently have.

Such coding means that if all money were to be in circulation in that same digital form and no other, every coin or part of it could be traced, located and tracked at any moment in time. It is for this reason that our increasingly technocratic and tyrannical governments and the greedy big businesses that influence them are desperate to digitise central currencies and push all of the privately generated versions as we know them aside.

The flaw in the thinking, whether it be a private, untied crypto or a digital central currency run by the government instead, is that blockchain technology gives genuine value to this ‘money’ right down to the most microscopic level.

The reality is that blockchain, like money is neither real nor a thing. No matter how clever, these blockchain derived digital currencies are no more than a reference tool, a label, a system of measurement and like money intrinsically before it, it is no more than a unit of exchange

Tragically the value of both money and crypto today is still based on the same giant myth or a massively overvalued shared belief.

At some point – perhaps within the 12 months from the time of writing, a financial collapse will take place affecting everything that FIAT money has touched or relates to. Money, nor any other form of currency based on nothing other than thin air will continue to exist and the correction that follows as everything in life returns to its unmanipulated value will be a process most painful for those who have made their life revolve around money and material wealth, when they could and should have exercised more considerate concerns.

It sounds very doomsdayish I know. But many of those who lurk daily within the finance and economic bubbles and play or rather bet on the markets know that those with power and influence have now created far too much money – relative to all the goods and output that genuinely exists. Indeed, the patterns and behaviours associated with everything to do with money, how it is made and how it is managed are following little in terms of any kind of logic. They more savvy amongst them know that the figures and data that is available foretells a cataclysmic change.

In terms of corrections, the pendulum is about to swing wildly the other way from where it has been held for a very long time.

The real value of goods, property and output will be realised as it becomes set against the wild speculation and explosive inflation that printing money has allowed.

We are likely to find that money or new forms of digital currency will go right back to their basic function. One that allows what is in effect multiple-transaction bartering of all the things that are necessary for life such as labour, basic food and the things that we genuinely need to live, so that money becomes purely functionary again, rather than being revered as some perverse value store.

It will serve no legitimate purpose for only one form of currency to exist. All forms of currency will become very localised with perhaps umbrella versions that do link to government to allow the payment of taxes and facilitate travel and the movement of goods between different areas.

The reason this doesn’t make sense today is because it is in the interest of those with influence for it not to do so. Yet tomorrow might be the beginning of a new day for us all when it most certainly will.

It is events now that will decide.
