Things will get worse and worse until they can get no worse. Only then can the change we all so desperately need begin

If you are following the Conservative Leadership ‘race’, even from a distance, it is easy to fall into the trap of believing that things really will change for the better. Just as soon as the new incumbent (aka Prime Minister), has been appointed by Tory Members, the world-famous door to No.10 has opened, and they have very publicly walked in.

SPOILER: It won’t.

In fact, if you have been listening, hearing, and really thinking about all that the two wannabes and ALL of the politicians across Parliament are telling us – that is, if you feel genuinely able to keep engaged – you will quickly realise that there is nothing new in anything that we are being told.

In fact, all of the bullshit we are having pumped at us from every direction only confirms that what we can expect is just the same and nothing more.

ALL of the politicians, the parties and the people who have held their seats and roles before them have been doing exactly the same things as today’s politicians are.

Our politicians are motivated by ambition, by wealth, by celebrity and basically by anything and everything that they can secure for themselves. It doesn’t matter the party or tribe to which they belong.

The divorce from reality and the real world that you and I live in, which even the most well-intended of these politicians inevitably suffer – because they are so committed to doing what they are told – has meant that those behind the scenes, at the top of business and across the establishment, the people who have agendas, have been able to influence the legislation that controls just about every part of life and the way that public policy works.

The elites have literally been aided and abetted to create a system that filled their pockets. Whilst the helpful idiots that have infested our political system, keep peddling the myths that everything is being done in our best interests and that we should accept it all as being right.

The slavish way that our MPs are motivated and behave, means that whoever is in  power, forms a government or is sat in No.10, there will be no meaningful deviation or change in policy that moves us away from the very same narrative that overrides and feeds into the way that the UK has been disasterously  for decades.

Tory, Labour, Liberal Democrat and other politicians have managed and made each and every choice, decision, action and event which has led to the problems that many of us are already experiencing now, along with the even bigger issues that we now inevitably face.

It really is already ‘baked in’.

This whole narrative has regrettably played continuously to the darker side, desires and wants of human nature. Sadly, we have all, at some level, bought into the money focused world.

Even now, we all continue to bear responsibility for the damage that is being done by selfishness and greed at every level of society. Even when increasing numbers of us recognise that the process of an horrific crash of our system and everything that we know is already underway.

Good, responsible politicians, who are genuine leaders and public representatives, would have anticipated and stopped the fall that humanity is now going through, long before now.

Instead, we have people running the Country who quite literally think leadership is as simple as being the one who has the title and the job. That everything else just falls into place. That everything will work better and as it always should have done, simply because they as individuals are better than everyone else. And now it’s their turn.

After all, how could anything fail when everything in the whole world is just about them?

If you can stop and find a moment to reflect on what some of the people you may have already passed in the street today are already going through in terms of going hungry, not having enough money and looking at unnecessary price rises that are weeks away that are going to destroy lives. If you can start to visualise how events and the challenges we face are going to get worse and worse for a rapidly growing number of people from all areas, all social groups and all colours. If you can see that this is the greed of corporate monsters filtering through, whilst our MPs do nothing more than create more money for them, whilst continuously devaluing everything that we have. You will soon realise that the frustrations and anger that is brewing will very soon go beyond a problem that can be reconciled by the establishment politely suggesting that everyone outside Westminster should do no more than bite their tongues and count to ten.

The politicians that we have today will not change their path, nor their direction. Not until the situation and circumstances for us all are seen and accepted by everyone to be outside of their control.

It doesn’t matter that many of the problems manifesting around our lives now tell us clearly that this has already happened. That this political class are already well and truly out of their depth.

Whilst the narrative tells us this is normal. Whilst everything continues to look like its working. Whilst we continue to believe that this system is still working for us. The downward trajectory and process of destruction that our politicians started to facilitate decades ago will continue. The only change being that it will pick up more and more speed.

When you have no money that anyone wants. When you cannot buy the food that you need just to eat and survive. When you understand what the real value of caring for and about each other and the world around us, rather than how people see us, or what we have is what life is really all about. Perhaps then you will be ready for the change that we not only need, but which these people who have run the Country (and the world) into the ground have now made inevitable.

For as long as these very stupid and selfish people or anyone like them remains in control, it is only after everything has crashed and the system has completely collapsed that we can begin to look at anything getting better, of us all taking back our control and of building our new world from the grassroots up.

The Basic Living Standard | The Basic Rule of The True Economy or Grassroots-Up System |

There is one fundamental rule of a new system that is balanced, fair and works for everyone: That every rule and law remains subservient and respectful in relation to the Basic Living Standard, and that its existence or impact will or cannot compromise the principle of The Basic Living Standard in any way, no matter how unrelated in may appear to be.

In effect, the adoption of The Basic Living Standard, whether that be as a resetting of the current system of governance or as the result of quite literally everything stopping and then starting all over again, is the act of completely overturning the Top-Down or hierarchical system of governance, and turning the whole thing on its head, so that the system becomes ‘Grassroots-Up’.

The Basic Living Standard is the rule that puts people first, instead of the prioritisation of money, the accumulation of material wealth, power, influence and gaining more of anything and everything before considering anyone else.

A Fair and Balanced Society can only work properly and maintain the fundamental equality of its system by creating and maintaining a framework of rules relating to everything that ensures that the material independence of the person cannot and will not be compromised by either the action or will of any other, and that it is the primary objective of the community and any structure of governance around or beyond it, to ensure that this principle is maintained at all times.

By adopting and maintaining the principle of The Basic Living Standard, the overwhelming number of issues that society faces will be addressed.

As long as the individual remains respectful of the dynamics of the principle of The Basic Living Standard which is and always be ‘treat others how you wish to be treated yourself’, almost everything that needs to be fixed, needs answers or requires solutions will create its own fix.

The Basic Living Standard Wage (BLSW)| All Businesses & Industries must back-work or redefine their prices based on providing the BLSW to their lowest paid employees

In Levelling Level, we used the term ‘The Great Correction’ as a way of describing the ‘reset’, ‘restart’ or complete flipping of the system in which we are now beginning to engage. For practical reasons and so that it is relatable, we have increasingly referred to this process as ‘The Great Reset’ – simply because the world Elites and World Economic Forum have been building a narrative around this term and it is vital that we all recognise that ownership of this process of change and the future beyond it is ours. It is not theirs.

Calling the process The Great Correction, is likely to prove to be the most accurate term, as whatever is done or however we look at it, unless the world is completely destroyed, there will be restarts, reestablishment and resets of everything at all levels. Everything will be corrected so that it works fairly and in a balanced way – as it always should.

With the collapse of the current system taking place like a series of falling dominoes, where one is knocked and then they all follow, it may perhaps seem strange that the reconstruction process that will create our new world, will happen or be set in motion in a very similar way.

It is the adoption of The Basic Living Standard and with it, The Basic Living Standard Wage that will be the first principle that must be adopted. Adoption of the Basic Living Standard Wage will serve to be the first domino that knocks over all the others that need to fall into place so that the Basic Living Standard becomes the benchmark for all.

Our system of governance only has to adopt and get the framework that guarantees The Basic Living Standard right, to set off the process that will ensure that it works and operates in every way that it should.

Once the Basic Living Standard becomes the principle upon which all rules and laws governing business and finance are based, all activities will then realign away from profit to people.

A True Economy is founded on value that each person contributes to it, partnered by the raw materials and resources that the world and environment gifts us

We have sadly all been drawn into an interpretation of life where money and the wealth that it appears to give us is considered to now be the benchmark or reference point for everything.

We literally value money to the point where it has not only become a thing in its own right, it has become the defacto god or deity that rules each and every part of our lives.

Today, we look upon others in terms of what they have, what status they hold, what they earn and what capacity they have to earn.

Yet the intrinsic value of money is nothing.

Money is worth zero.

Money is a unit of exchange and nothing more.

It is simply a change in our beliefs that has allowed the value of money to take over our lives in this way.

What we not only fail to realise, but have actually forgotten, is that the real point of value in anything is its beginning or its foundation. What it was built on or built with.

The true value of anything is not even the end product, or whatever the parts, inputs or elements of any constructive process add up to – or what things become.

People, or each and every human being on the planet are the basic elements or building blocks of The True Economy.

It is the Labour, Time, Skills and Experience of PEOPLE that add value, through process, to the raw materials and resources that we take from the world.

Surviving The Great Reset | The New Economy | Where we are right now | The Money system we have is going to collapse

Perhaps the biggest change that we face in the coming years and months, is that which will accompany the collapse of the money or currencies that we are used to, along with the system or rules that underpin every part of it, the way it functions and the way it can be manipulated by those ‘in the know’.

‘What would we do without money’ is a valid question. But it also reflects the situation and circumstances that we have been in for a long time. One where money has become the reference tool for just about everything – and regrettably for some, the way that we have started to value life itself.

There is no part of the monetary system that we have and use today, that hasn’t been broken and redefined to serve the self-interest and greed of people who have had the power, influence and ability to manipulate the monetary system in some way.

There is a natural order to everything. So even though it may take decades to happen, any system that is willfully created and manipulated to serve the interests of a few at the cost of the many will always meet its end.

Every ecosystem has a point of balance and when that point of balance is out, the balance must be restored – either by the inhabitants doing the right and respectful thing, or when they refuse to do so, by the system itself breaking and coming to its end through collapse.

This is where we are now.

This broken system that is hurting us all, has a name: It’s called ‘Top-Down’

If you want to live in a different kind of world, where everyone is valued for who they really are and not what they have or what they can afford, it’s important to recognise what the building blocks that will make that world real will look like.

It’s also very important to recognise what represents the key tenets and elements of the old world, and the thinking that will keep the majority disadvantaged in some way, whilst benefits of every kind continue to be funneled towards those either at or very near the very top.

The system that we have and that we are in the process of leaving, functions with people in positions of power and responsibility for the lives of others. People who believe that they are special and behave as if they are special in some way.

It doesn’t matter what the behaviour, skill or attribute might be that makes them believe they are special, whether its knowledge, popularity, position or wealth. If any person of group of people who have influence over or responsibility for others believe that they are different and better than those other people in any way, the system that they are influencing will always be about them and never about anyone else.

The people with power and influence who consider themselves above others, look down on everyone that they believe they have that power or influence over. This is the very basic mechanics of the system of ‘Top-Down’.

In its broader sense, ‘Top-Down’ is a hierarchical system. Power is always funneled from the many to the few above them. Then from the few to the one or two that are then above.

The process can and does repeat itself over and over again and often resembles the shape of a pyramid.

It’s a relationship that thrives on the creation of distance. Because those with power we are in direct contact with and easily able to access in a way where they listen, are often much further away from those that they themselves are subservient to. This means that those who we should most be able to rely on to do what’s best for us rarely even understand the rules, diktats and instructions that come from their own hierarchy ‘above’.

You will recognise those who are beholden to the ‘Top-Down’ system, because they are always better in some way than us. They thrive on peddling the myth that there are those ‘in the know’ and that they have special skills or special knowledge. When in fact all their ‘position’ or ‘role’ does is give them an excuse to avoid truth or avoid make decisions based solely in the moment and on doing only what is right for everyone – not just their masters or themselves.

Question the integrity and values of anyone who presents themselves as a leader at any level, who has come from management within a large company or corporate structure, has been in a leadership role within community organisations or within local councils, or has been a politician and member of one of the well-known parties and not demonstrated an ability once elected, to stand out without their party on their own.

Beware the people who have said a few things that have struck chords with some people and given them what appears to be great popularity. Popularity and leadership skills in the untested are usually two very distant things.

Above all, be on your guard against anyone who tells you they have knowledge and networks but cannot give a credible and open overview of what they are or how they attained them. Run a mile from anyone whose credibility as a leader rests purely on a name or who they are directly linked as nepotism is one of the most insidiously destructive and corrupt elements of the Top-Down system by far.

Each and every one of us gave our consent to this shitshow of a system – by the simplest acts of taking part

We previously discussed the role of belief, and how it is belief that makes things real.

By believing in the system and supporting or acquiescing to it by taking part in it in any way, we actively take that believe to a level where we are giving it our consent.

It doesn’t matter whether the people running the system and every part of it are doing so dishonestly once they have that power. By voting for their politicians, by taking their loans, by playing their stock market games, by betting on their sports, by taking their benefits, by being qualified by their education system and degrees, by believing everything they tell us through the mainstream media outlets that they own and through many other actions that cover almost every part of life today, WE ARE ALL GIVING THEM OUR CONSENT – to continue doing all the things that they do.

Some of you reading this will immediately scoff and be thinking something like ‘I’ve got their number. I know how it all works. I’m not part of this. I DIDN’T GIVE THEM MY CONSENT!’

But even those who are awake enough to see everything today for what it is, are continuing to give consent to the system that we have, by even the smallest act or action of taking part in it.

In fact, the system is now impossible to avoid, for as long as it continues to exist.

The power that politicians and the elites have is ours and was only given on loan. The opportunity is coming when we have the choice to reclaim our power and take it back

The system is supposedly democratic. But there is nothing democratic about a political system that exists around a Top-Down structure. One that is insulated from constructive change by a political party system that has effectively bolted the door to anyone who could have or still could bring real leadership to the Country, and with it much less difficulty as we are all forced to embrace change.

The collapse of everything that we know, or what we might otherwise call a systemic collapse is underway. It will get increasingly worse for everyone. It will touch everyone’s lives in some way.

Despite what appearances might be used to tell or suggest to us, the collapse of everything will come in the form of massive problems like shortages of food and essential goods, rationing, scarcity, delays, shut down of public services, strikes and may other changes to what we have considered to be normal or what we could expect. The collapse itself may not be recognisable if you wait around for absolutely everything to stop working or completely shut down.

The that we all must understand is that the Collapse of the System is not likely to be obvious, especially to those who are aware of changes, but have not had their lives directly touched.

Good people who care about others, will continue to do their jobs as best they can, because it is the right thing to do. But that will to do the right thing could easily keep what’s left of the existing system coughing and spluttering long enough, that the same Top-Down interests can consolidate what they have left and begin to build their new system in its place.

The worst that is likely to happen, is people without food and essentials or the money to buy food and essentials, will take to the streets and seek out a focus for their blame.

One way or another, the moment will come when you will either be able to see, or you will simply know that the game is up for the system that has brought us all to where we are.

It is this moment or point in time when we all have the real opportunity to withdraw the consent, we have unwittingly given to this system that has hurt all of us. To realise that power and the power to change everything is actually ours. That the choice we have is either to take the easy option and let someone else create the new system. Or withdraw our consent to more of the same, and instead take and act upon the decision to take all of our power back.

Once you believe there is a need for change, you will need to change everything else that you believe

One of the hardest realities to get our heads around is that much of the way we behave with others and interact with the outside world is based on nothing more than belief.

Furthermore, we too often then fail to recognise that the beliefs that we have – which govern our behaviour for the future, are actually based on experiences that we have had in the past.

The past is quite literally governing how we will interact with our future.

We are allowing rules that we either created for ourselves, or that society created for us, to dictate what happens in circumstances and situations where those rules are no longer fit for purpose, or don’t serve any of our interests very well at all.

Yes, it can be quite a strange moment when we realise that we are living in the past. But what many of us don’t understand beyond this, is that our acceptance of this part of our reality – without question, means that we also don’t question change or the behaviour of others, when that change or behaviour can be quickly labelled with ‘That’s the way things are supposed to be’. ‘That’s just how it is’, or ‘That’s just the way that things have always been done’.

To be quite fair, it will feel to many of us that the system we have or the governance structure around us has been a good one.

It has allowed the world around us to keeping turning. It has kept everything outside of our own bubbles working, so that everything we want is ready and waiting wherever it should be. It has made us believe that life is easy and can only get easier, without us even questioning what the real cost of this automatic surrender of our trust would be.

But we don’t really think about what’s going on around us. Because this is the way that things have been done for so long.

We trust that the people we elect are in office to represent us.

We trust that big business always put the needs and interests of their customers first.

We trust that the public sector works and operates to make life for the public better.

We trust that the establishment together, will always do right for all of us.

Yet as an increasing number of us are now realising, the time when any of these beliefs were created, was a long way back in the past.

We are beginning to understand and accept that placing our trust in the establishment was at best a mistake. At worst, it is being proven completely wrong.

The ‘system’ no longer works for the people. But because of our collective belief and deference to the way we believe things should work – even when they clearly aren’t, we fail to realise that the power everyone within the establishment has isn’t theirs because of the money, status, position that they ‘have’ or because they are special in some way.

It is because we have given them that power. And we have forgotten that power is ours, and we have every right to take it back.

Getting your head around the reality of where power really lies is hard enough. What becomes even more challenging is taking the next step to understand and to accept that all the tools that the establishment have been using to make life so easy for us, only work because we believe everything that we are being verbally or experientially told.

We are collectively blind to the fact that any or every part of the system would stop working immediately the very moment that we stopped believing what we believe about it. And that at the very moment we did so, we would be withdrawing from the establishment, what is our assumed consent.

There is a very good reason to make the effort to try and making sense of how the governance or ruling frameworks of the world that we know around us really work.

That reason is the system as we know it has not been run or managed in our best interests for a very long time.

The cumulative effect of decision after decision being made to benefit the specific interests of those within the establishment has been catalysed by the government response to recent events and the whole system is now in the process of a massive collapse.

The challenge presented to us all by what is happening around us right now, is that you quite literally have to see it, to believe it.

And if you still believe that the ‘system’ you have spent your life believing in will always work for you, even when it becomes very clear that it doesn’t, it hasn’t and it won’t, then you will not be able to see the damage that it is and has been doing when the time comes for us all to do something. The people and people just like them who we have all believed to be ‘in charge’, will simply be able to continue to count on your vote.

If you have read this far and have concluded that I am talking bollocks, I’d like to thank you for doing so and sincerely wish you all the best.

However, if you can see any of the truth in what I am saying, or even suspect that at least some of it could be right, please do keep reading as we are all on a journey that can no longer be avoided.

What happens next, is all about us realising that the power to do everything that needs to be done is in the hands of each and every one of us.

The power for creating a much better future isn’t based on the past and won’t simply appear in the future. Its all about what we think, decide and do right here in the moment or in the ‘now’.

Surviving The Great Reset | Survive & Thrive | Reuse, Recycle, Repair

Whilst I have already touched on the revival of Make do and Mend, it cannot be understated just how much we can all help ourselves as this period of crisis deepens, by stepping away from the reliance we have, that everything we need, will come to us ‘new’.

It won’t. Easy everything is at its end.

Yes, the supply of new goods will appear to continue for a time, with that supply coughing and spluttering in terms of those things that remain available. But many other items – particularly those which are items we want, rather than what we need, or that come to us from great distances across the world – will simply disappear from our lives for good.

One way or another – affecting those most who find affordability the main issue first, followed by all those who believe they have plenty of money now and find that it quickly becomes less and less until what they ‘have’ has no value at all – ‘new’ simply isn’t going to be the ‘go to’ option anymore.

It’s all going to be about what we can reuse, how we can reuse it. What we can repair and how we can repair it. What we can recycle and how we can reuse goods that cannot be used again for their original purpose, and then repurpose them in the best way possible – to benefit ourselves and to benefit us ALL.

Think smart. Think about the skills that you really have already or those that you could easily learn. Think about a very practical world where everything revolves around life, living and the community, where people and not money are the centre of everything, rather than what we only appear to have going on around us right now.

If you have an interest or talent in arts and crafts, or even feel quite proficient at DIY, the chances are that you can put that interest or ability to good work. First to help yourself, but also to help others around your neighbourhood and community too.

The Great Reset | Survive & Thrive | Create your own self-sufficiency toolkit

May 18, 2022 2 comments

When we were kids, all had bikes, and were allowed to go off for rides, it wasn’t uncommon for us to have a puncture repair kit handy – even if we didn’t have any idea how to use it if we had a punctured tyre, and would usually rely on a parent or another adult fixing it for us if we did.

Good times. Especially when there was always an answer to the problem and everything could always be fixed.

As we navigate our way through the challenges that lie ahead, it wont just be punctures on a bicycle that we need to think about being prepared for.

In fact, it would be a good idea for us to have the most practical contingency plan in place possible, to take care of anything that we have a genuine need to use regularly – if its something that can be easily fixed, or something that we need to use to feed, heat or support ourselves when we are unable to access our ‘normal’ supplies.

Some of the following items are things that we will need. Some we will use regularly. Some we will never need – but it will be better that we have and don’t use them, than finding ourselves without them if we do!

There will be others – and if you start thinking about what you would need if there is no power, water or heating, you’ll begin to get an idea of the things you might need for you to be able to do all the things that you need to do:

  • Sewing kit (including some needles, different coloured thread)
  • First Aid Kit (including plenty of plasters, some antiseptic cream etc)
  • Paracetamol/Aspirin or other basic pain relief tablets that you and those with you would normally use
  • Large air-tight resealable bags
  • A ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of multi-tool gadget that you have tested for robustness
  • Water Purification Kit – the kind you would take for a long camping trip
  • Firelighters
  • Matches
  • A small torch with spare batteries
  • Candles and/or Tea Lights
  • A wind-up / solar radio and phone-charger
  • Cable Ties (assorted sizes)
  • A hatchet or small handled axe
  • A small pan for boiling water that can be heated on a naked flame
  • A small frying pan / griddle pan that can be heated on a naked flame
  • A small sharp cooking knife
  • A few packs of baby wipes / wet wipes
  • Some basic dried and canned foods including pasta, rice, fish and the types of things that you can turn into a meal without need of anything else – clearly depending on what your dietary needs (NOT WANTS!) and those of the people with you normally are
  • A can opener (if there isn’t one on your tool gadget)

There will probably be others too. But again, the emphasis is all about what we will need and not about what we want. The two are very different things and this is all about being happy with what we have already got!

Please remember that this is just a guide. Visualise a situation where nothing is available, and you will soon know what you will really need.

You will find all of these things online, and most of them will be available in supermarkets, DIY and home stores too. Please remember that as distribution systems increasingly fail – as they are going to, even goods that are available online, wont be shipped or even delivered to local stores so that you can buy or collect them there.

The time to prepare for all eventualities is NOW. NOT when there are shortages of everything and being prepared makes real-time sense!

The Great Reset | Survive & Thrive | Self-sufficiency and rejection of the current wealth-based rules structure

The thought or rather the question of how anyone can survive without money is not a pleasant one.

Indeed, please spare a thought for the many who are already in that place, not only in the UK, but right across the world.

People, like you or I, who are only different to us, because they don’t have enough money to even afford the basic essentials of life.

These are human beings, just like us. People who don’t have the option of becoming self-sufficient, simply because they are relatively few in number.

We frown on them or look down on them because the normal way of doing things is based on money being the benchmark of life.

Once enough of us don’t have enough, the shibboleths and miscreated rules of this current societal structure will no longer hold their meaning or purpose. We will no longer shame others, be shamed, feel shame or be restricted from simply doing the things that we need to in order to survive and live.

Levelling Level is the Aim. But we are on the first steps of very challenging journey and it is essential that we Survive AND Thrive

Levelling Level is not only an aim. It is about the process or journey from where we are today, travelling through the turbulence of transition and change, so that we not only survive and thrive, but then recognise and fully utilise the keystone of the foundations that we will all build a fair and balanced world for everyone upon.

Looking after ourselves, so that we remember that every element of life is not just something that can be given a price tag and bought, will be a very big part of what our experiences in the near future will be about.

There will be shortages that mean there isn’t new to replace old.

There will be shortages that mean finding different ways to do the same things.

There will be shortages that mean we can never do the same things that we have been doing ever again.

When it boils down to it, the world as we know it and as we have experienced it is going to stop.

The good news – that many of our politicians, elites and those at the top don’t want any of us to remember, is that humans are intrinsically resilient and resourceful. As soon as real adversity knocks at the door, it reminds us who we really are.

The very small amount of tolerance we have left for the people who are running this shit show today, will evaporate very quickly, once their continuing stupidity really has taken everything we are being led to experience, too far.

Then we will reimagine who we are, what we can do, how we will do it and who we will do it with.

Please get used to terms like community, local, reuse recycle repair, make do and mend, grow your own, rationing, sharing, cooperatives, swapping, bartering – and anything else that could frame living for at least a time where money isn’t available as a medium of exchange, and life is focused the value of what we need and what we can offer, rather than being all about what we can or cannot afford to buy.

We surrendered our power to the money-driven world. Its collapse will allow us to remember who we are

Whilst there is a theme of warning or raising a red flag about the process of change that we are now within, Levelling Level is not here as some kind of apocalypse guide.

Although there are likely to be periods of time in the coming months and possibly years too, that feel like everything is about to end, that will only be because of how momentous the transition or shift we are going to experience will be.

After all, we are now in the early stages of a shift that will take us from a system where we have been continually programmed to believe that everything around us is normal, to one that many of us today believe not only to be an impossible way to live, but completely incompatible or at odds with where everyone believes that we currently are.

The material-focused, money-is-the-benchmark of everything world has been a very intoxicating experience for just about everyone.

One of its most compelling aspects is the way that more and more complication of everything convinces us that we are now beyond living more simplistic lives.

But the cost has been high. That complication has distracted us. We have given away our power to everything outside of us and have forgotten who and what we really are.

Surviving The Great Reset | Deglobalisation | There will be Permanent Changes to the Supply Chain

The very challenging thing for everyone to accept as we look at the world we have been used to today, is that everything we have been taking for granted is going to change.

We will discuss other fundamental or building-block areas of change elsewhere. But in terms of the Global Supply Chain collapse that is underway, which has only been aided and abetted by the responses of Politicians to Brexit, The Covid Pandemic and the War in Ukraine, the massive change across the world that’s coming, will be felt by consumers and end users in terms of what goods we will be able to buy and what foods are readily available for us to eat.

The reality of this change will be the reconstruction of supply chains that focus on home and very localised production, processing, distribution and retailing, all of which have been progressively and aggressively dismantled as the shift from localised marketplaces to the so-called Global Economy has taken place.

The change and transition from Global to Local will be permanent. Globalisation is over. Our values and priorities are going to fundamentally change.

Yes. It was always intended by big business, politicians and the elites, that Global networks and systems they developed and sold as being beneficial to us would always be permanent. Unless or until they could find even more profitable ways to make even more money at even lower costs, without any consideration for the lives of everyone else apart from what money anyone else had to spend on the products that these increasingly nebulous systems brought to our doors.

But the Global System is no longer functional. The motivation and aims that created it are being exposed for what they are. This means there will be no going back to a greed-based economy.

A robust local economy is all about people and values, rather than money and wealth. There are benefits to our wellbeing from what lies ahead that money and marketing could never buy.

It’s time to think beyond just surviving The Great Reset to the light beyond and how we can then begin to really thrive.

Surviving The Great Reset | Rationing

If you have been paying attention to the news, you will know that rationing has already been discussed with some things like Petrol and Diesel Fuel.

But as shortages of everything that everyone needs to live and survive each day begin to really bite, the reality that we face is that rationing is likely to become a legal requirement with allowances for certain foods and goods that are available being imposed.

We are not talking about a kind of rationing that is just the choice of a supermarket that knows how much of anything it has and can put on the shelves for its normal customer base, every day of the week.

That will be a sign that things are still pretty good.

We are talking about rationing of all the basic goods and foods that are necessary for each and every one of us to survive.

If you would like a good example of the kind of rationing that I am referring to, you need look no further than the period around the Second World War. When everyone had a ration book and was allocated a certain amount of each kind of food and the essential items that everyone needed to live.

Rationing ensured that of the very limited supply of foods and goods that we had available from being grown or produced in the Country, or that we could get from overseas using ships that were regularly being sunk by German U-Boats, was being divided up fairly.

Wartime Rationing existed so that the shortages that we did have were being shared as a burden by everyone. But that above all, everyone had just about enough to live.

We may not have a world war going on that means Europe is a closed door to us today. But in terms of a Global Supply Chain collapse that is now underway, the result is likely to be experienced in vey much the same way.

Surviving The Great Reset | Shortages of Food & Goods

In the coming weeks, months and years too, we are going to experience shortages of everything that we are used to being able to buy.

The shortages will not only affect the things that come from outside of this Country. And many of us will be surprised by just how many of these there really are.

The shortages will also affect the things that are still made and produced in this Country – such as very basic foods that are produced and grown even very close to our homes.

The reason for these shortages is that the system that we have become used to and that we take for granted, is now beginning to break.

Once we have accepted that the collapse of the system is not a problem that will be fixed – which will take us all a period of time, there will be a further period of time where necessary changes have to be made to everything and a new system of supply is developed that can be relied upon and that is balanced, fair and works in the best interests of everyone.

Some of the shortages will be temporary.

In some cases, the shortages will be perhaps as short as just a few days.

But in terms of many of the things that we believe we need, but actually want, the shortages will be permanent.

Production resources that we have available here will be re-tasked to growing and producing the foods and the things that we all actually need, as opposed to the things that some of us think we need, but only want.

Think of the first weeks of Lockdown, when ‘panic buying’ left people unable to bake things or wipe their bum.

Roll that idea out across everything you really need to eat, drink and take care of yourself each day, and that is a reflection of the experience we will all have, that is to come.

The terminal weakness of a greed-based supply chain has always been present, hiding in plain sight

An entire generation of business and industry managers have been trained and qualified on systems that are all about reducing costs.

Their ‘qualifications’ play up to the belief that very elaborate supply chains that take or harvest raw materials to be refined, and then to be made in to small parts, and then to be made into bigger parts, and then those parts to be made into perhaps cars or machines, and then those cars or machines appear at a dealership where we buy them – with all of the transportation, sorting and storage in between – going back and forth around the world – can be maintained ‘just in time’ and with the minimum of anything being stockpiled ‘on a shelf’ at any location along that supply line.

The system that has developed around this idea has not only affected the apparently low price of the products we buy at the end of the chain. It has also relied on pushing every part of every possible chain involved to the limit where minimising the cost of raw materials and production of any kind to the absolute minimum is concerned.

Profit has been the only driver. But even the drive for profit against the steps that are necessary in any supply chain have been further complicated and exploited by the reality that people and interests that are completely unnecessary to each supply chain have become involved.

So-called ‘agents’ step in to the middle of supply chains and buy goods and then sell them on at a profit – sometimes even years before they have even been grown or produced, making a profit and adding to the end costs – without adding any value to the end product. This often happens many times.

People or self-serving interests could not keep taking from and exploiting others in the way that this Globalised System has allowed them to do so without the cost to others becoming to high. In financial terms, that point has now been reached.

But the real price hasn’t just been the fact that the poorest and most vulnerable are no longer able to afford to live.

Neither is it the reality that poverty and hunger is an issue that more and more of us are about to face.

The real cost is that all of the ways of living and the localised systems that meant we always had access to the things that we genuinely need to survive each day have been removed or have been replaced, and this monstrosity of a system that works for no god other than profit, has been choking us all without us even realising, as it has aggressively been put in its place.

Today, we have literally reached a point where our farmers are not being paid what it costs them to produce foods at the fist stage of a supply chain. They are now choosing to stop producing, because it costs them too much to do so. Right at the very moment when worldwide food shortages are coming into view.

Today, we are perhaps weeks or months away from the point when trouble for us all will really begin.

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?’

The Supply Chain Break-Down that’s beginning to happen right now

You might have already noticed that different things that you usually or often buy when you visit the local supermarket or shop online are unavailable for some reason.

You might not have worried too much, simply because at the time you usually shop – let’s say late on a Saturday afternoon – you have become used to some of the shelves seeming to be a bit bare. It’s been a busy day, after all, right?

For most people, the experience has been a little different. In fact, no matter when people have been shopping, certain items have increasingly been absent from the shopping list. Perhaps temporarily – with them returning. But then they have been disappearing all over again.

The reason for this is that the supply chain for some foods and some goods is already at breaking point. Like a broken car, the supply chain keeps stopping and needs to be restarted or fixed, before it will work for whoever is running it again.

The problem for governments and big business, is that both the Global and National supply chain break down is not symptomatic or just a direct result of recent global events. And it is not just about the way that they have responded – although this has actually made things much worse.

The problems with the Global Supply Chain are all about the system now crashing.

Whilst we might see it as being possible to go without an expensive bag, a new smartphone or even a brand-new car for a short time whilst someone else solves the problem – as they always do, things are going to feel very different when the shortages start affecting all the basic essentials we need to live each day, and specifically food.

No, you may not believe this is going to happen. We are all, after all, used to and we take for granted that things can continue to go as well as they have been doing. That just like the shortages that happened during the Covid Lockdowns, after a few days, the problems will just go away.

They won’t.

The problems that we are only beginning to experience with shortages aren’t going to go away.

The only similarity to the experience we had during the unnecessary Lockdowns was what happens when certain things like toilet rolls and foods like flour and eggs suddenly disappear from the shelves and other people begin to hoard more of them than they could ever need or use, because they are terrified of going without.

Welcome to a drawn-out Global Supply Chain Crash. Welcome to The Great Reset. This is just part of what all the problems we now face are going to be about.
