Space men die. New planets are discovered. Whole countries are bolting from the pseudoscience that hydrocarbons are our only scalable source of energy. The frontrunners in the selection for warmonger-in-chief, a formerly-bankrupt real estate developer and Hell's version of Michael Corleone, compete over who is the most islamophobic. (So which one is it? The one who wants to kick them all out or the one who is not only directly responsible for the death of tens of thousands of Muslims, but thinks it is a reason you should vote for her?)
We are all largely agreed that the TPP and similar trade agreements are the building out of the legal infrastructure required for a truly global corporatocracy. GMO companies are buying private armies. That unanimous, bilateral bill allowing for the private conquest of space that was passed needs to be seen in the light of the forthcoming trade agreements. However many countries complain about it, they legally cannot do anything about it in a post-TPP world.
Another thing people seem to have missed about the Federal Reserve's recent decision not to hike interest rates was the justification was entirely global. Basically keeping rates where they are is better for China, even if it is worse for American retirees relying on pension funds. What was once an institution (however successful or not) designed to improve or safeguard the American economy now works for the world. And by 'the world' I mean 'the people who would run it'. This means monetary policy is now openly set on a global level for the express benefit of the same giant companies and their interlocking boards of directorship.
Fusion technology. Total surveillance and the global 'sharing' of that surveillance data coming at the end of this year. Digital currencies. Supranational trade agreements. The private conquest of space. The criminalisation of independent food production. Add in whatever is going on behind the curtain of the recent volte-face in the AI and robotics industry. (Current theory: somebody in the shadow state threw a new piece of interesting technology in through Google's backdoor that revealed their preposterous Kurzweillian model of human cognition to be as astoundingly wrong and stupid as we always knew it was. 'Try this instead, boys'.) Legal, fiscal, technological checkmate, earth.
Signs. Portents. Apocalypses. The return of what could easily pass for gods to physically walk the earth/watch us from weaponised satellites hanging in space.
The very least we can say is that we were made for this. I need some convincing, however, that we are up to it.
Jay and I were discussing such matters while out drinking on Friday night. I remember on one of Dr Farrell's vidchats from last year, he said with some resignation, words to the effects of "I'm not interested in arguing about whether there is a breakaway fascist group. I've been doing this for a long time. There just is. Go and look for yourselves." ie are you up to even thinking about it. Just consider the previous few paragraphs.
Also consider the broad timeline of how and when this deep state stuff went Deep Private, which, as I've been saying for years, began in the late seventies (probably as a result of the Church Committee and definitely overseen by Bush Snr. Note this is also the time we see the full financialisation/debt-serfdom of the populace begin.) Interesting how that date aligns with this graph... (also found via Jay, funnily enough.)
Are you fucking kidding me? You think nothing happened in the last almost-forty-years when every other field of technology has changed beyond all recognition? Guess you're not up to this apocalypse.
Time to get up to speed. Conveniently, there are some recent interviews which may help. In the first one (begins properly around the half-hour mark), Dr Farrell makes an interesting observation about what we might call the breakaways' 'history department'. I like this, and it tracks with some of the discussions Chris Knowles and I had -more on that guy later- about the evidence for an entirely different cosmology at a super-elite level. If you stumble upon and then conceal what is effectively an entirely separate system of physics or a completely different view of our solar system, you would not be doing your diligence if you didn't look back through history for corroboration or further support.
The next video is Mr Breakaway himself, Rich Dolan.
And, conveniently completing the triumvirate, Catherine Fitts.
I mention all this now because, as Austin spoke about on the podcast, we are a couple of weeks out from the worst space weather of the year. So here he is twice, talking
Also, I link with zero shame to your monthly astrologyzone forecasts -watch the video, too.
So much for the signs. Here is Chris Knowles on Always Records to talk you through the portents. I think we all know that things are going to get more than a little shit in the coming months. Take a longer view and it becomes easier to swallow. Babel never reaches heaven. Which is a good place to share Raj's latest video, inspired by his reading of Star.Ships.
Have each other's backs and remember we were made for this.
