Whilst the World Wakes Up, the World Falls Apart

What a wild ride 2016 continues to be. The good news is that people continue to wake up in droves and it’s causing even the most highly indoctrinated to question the ‘beliefs’ they’ve been ‘designed’ with. Even the official 911 story is finally being questioned by those who never did their proper research, thanks to the recent Saudi Arabia debacle.

On the other hand, the shift is really hitting the fan. Examples include:

  • banks finally admitting serious fraud (such as money laundering and precious metal market fixing);
  • a culminating European refugee and banking crisis;
  • massive Australian and Chinese ‘private-debt’ and ‘housing’ bubbles;
  • increasing geopolitical tensions in the Middle East;
  • amplifying earthquakes and volcanic activity along the ring of fire; and
  • concerns over an escalating WWIII scenario, to cite but a few.

The list goes on and on.

Economic Collapse Vs Stagnation

Over the last several years however the primary concern is in regards to our failing fiat monetary system and the death of the US dollar (and the petrodollar). This really culminated mid last year and has only gotten more serious since, however the stock price manipulators (Plunge Protection Teams, corporations buying their own stocks and Central Bank activity) have been propping up this asset class which has recently given us the appearance that ‘everything is okay’.

If you’ve been watching, you would have noticed the global stocks have been bipolar in their behavior, crashing one month and high on life another. There has been a triple top in the US markets, which has some alternative economists and commentators calling the inevitable failure of the manipulation, because the house of cards is just too unstable.

Simply, the view in the alternative community is by far focused towards the slow death of the current western fiat system and many are stating that major changes will be happening in the very near future.

Considering that the fundamental or ‘main-street’ economy has continued to whither away, the global economic situation is simply nowhere near as great as we’ve been led to believe by the oligarchical-controlled media and the recent rise in stock prices. For example, Brazil, Russia, Canada, Venezuela and other national economies in recession, depression or experiencing hyperinflation are indicative of what could soon be a harsh reality throughout the rest of the world.

It is likely by mid 2016 it will finally be official that the US has been in a technical recession, even with their manipulated GDP and other data. Regardless, the global economy is clearly in a deflationary cycle. If this bottoms out in a global economic depression like that of the early 20th Century, then hyperinflation will likely occur across the world, just like it has in Venezuela.

However, in an interview with the notorious Professor Steve Keen a few weeks ago (embedded at the end of this article), he stated that they could keep this system going at a painfully stagnant rate, just like they have in Japan for so long. Others ferociously disagree with this analysis, particularly because of the massive derivatives bubble and other factors that didn’t relate to Japan’s situation all those years ago.

Steve admits that he isn’t an expert on derivatives; he focuses on private debt levels. So given he is an “anti-economist” in his own words, which means that he debunks the Keynesian approach to economic design, he is in the alternative camp with others who see the failure of our current economic design, which illustrates the internal division on what will happen and how to move forward.

Gold Standard Vs People’s Fiat

Steve also believes that going back to the gold standard is not the answer (where all currency is backed by gold). Given its failure in the roaring 20’s and the depression of the 30’s, his point may very well be justified. This view is also supported by Bill Still, who was recently interviewed at the SGT Report:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQmBesHr-ys

Many in the sovereignty movements believe in going back to the gold standard, but have they really considered the other option? The alternative potential is for the government (the people) to capitalize on the power we have to create money out of nothing. First, we must take away the illegitimate power of private banking institutions to do it, including all private central banks, and then legislate it to be done by the government solely for the benefit of the people and the environment.

As one example of a policy package already designed to achieve this, a political party in Australia has proposed two economic policies which ensure that the Government retakes it power to create an honest money supply, as well as guarantees that the multinational corporations pay their fair share in tax.

First is their monetary policy which stops private banks creating money out of nothing and ensures that the government creates the $120 billion needed each year to ensure that the debt which is repaid to the banks, as well as population growth, doesn’t result with deflation. This money will be immediately invested into asset-backed infrastructure, which embarrasses the $1.5 billion averaged each year for the last decade or so. The difference is staggering and would result in huge projects like high speed rail and pipelines built to green parts of the desert.

Second is that all taxes are to be removed (except import and export taxes) and replaced with a 2% debit-transaction tax. Given there are tens of trillions of dollars that move through the Aussie economy annually, all up these two policies would generate more than double the revenue currently received each year, with businesses and individuals only paying 2% tax. This is compared to up to 50% or more that some working class people pay when you include licences, registrations and taxes on land, fuel, alcohol etc etc.

These are truly revolutionary policies which deal with the toxicity and inequality of the system we have today, and coupled with their approaches to education, health, medicine, natural resources, environment, energy, permaculture, pensioners and many others, they should be immediately considered by political and community representatives from all around the world so that a mainstream dialogue can subsequently occur.

Helicopter Money

Further to the idea that the monetary ponzy scheme instituted by the oligarchs will be kept alive for quite a while longer, it’s important to consider that many truth-seeking economists and analysts were saying that the system was going to break before Quantitative Easing (QE) was invented after the great recession of 2008. Then QE came along to save the economy from a deflationary implosion – so the puppeteers could once again do something similar given the current contraction in the global economy.

A quick fix they might utilize to re-stimulate the economy is QE for the people, or helicopter money. What this means is that instead of creating money out of nothing and injecting it into the finance sector (QE), it is injected into main street (or all our personal bank accounts). This would need to be a coordinated strategy done by many governments of the world so that it doesn’t cause hyperinflation, and this money must be created by governments so that there is no debt attached to it.

It also should be used to pay off personal debt, whilst those with no debt can spend it into circulation.

Even if they do use this approach, the fact still remains that we need to do something comprehensive about this complete economic failure because the mainstream economy has been suffering for a decade now, and arguably longer. For example, we should not take the official unemployment rates seriously; the amount of people struggling to survive because they are either underemployed or have given up trying to find work is staggering. Poverty, homelessness, mental health issues and addiction is increasing all over the western world, whilst the middle class is rapidly shrinking.

These issues are a direct result of the unethical power that the shadow order has. Its a hard pill to swallow, but the system is designed to favor the banking and transnational corporations that control both our money supply, and our mainstream media. The disappointing aspect is that most politicians, media personalities and other famous social commentators have no idea of this fact, so its no wonder that they sound convincing when they spray misinformation which does not speak to this fundamental truth.

If they do understand it and choose not to speak up, then they will not be on the right side of history, nor do they have the courage and ethics to truly represent the needs of not just the people, but our natural systems too. We need real leaders who are prepared to make personal sacrifices in the name of truth, honor and sovereignty, not ill-informed or complicit mouthpieces of the social engineering agenda.

What Next?

So what will happen in terms of the global economy? It appears its anyone’s guess. Unless of course it’s a controlled demolition, then there are some who would know. There are a few voices saying the fundamentals are just too weak to keep this ponzy scheme going for too much longer and that the result might be a return to a gold standard just like the Eastern World appears to be preparing for with their gold accumulation and the Chinese creating a mirror to the London gold fix.

There are others however who say that the powers-that-will-no-longer-be will try to manipulate this system to survive until at least after the US election so they can get Hillary into power to maintain their goals of a one world government and a one world currency.

The US Election

The US Presidential Race is an absolute circus, especially because the delegates system is rigged, as is the electronic voting system which will be used as a fail-safe. Trump appears to have little policy substance, as well as a bigoted energy which is creating a lot of division, however he does speak some truth and hints towards taking the power from the Fed to create the US money supply (he says he will pay off the national debt in 8 years which is the only way he could do it).

Bernie is arguably the representative with the most truth, particularly around the unethical and illegal union between Wall Street and the US government, however his policy approach is considered by the free market advocates as one that will destroy the economy and issue in a socialist ideological framework. The latter is quite ironic actually considering we have had socialism for the rich policies for quite some time now.

In any case, as these two candidates appear to be anti-establishment, even with their alleged shortfalls they are clearly the best options.

That’s because on the other hand Clinton is an absolute criminal, a puppet for the establishment and a war-mongering psychopath. It’s unbelievable that she’s even allowed to run for President, so if she gets in (which is clearly the plan) then I hope that the American people will finally stand up and take back their power like they should have done a long time ago.

Don’t believe my word though; watch Abby Martin’s expert breakdown to understand who the real Hillary is:

Final Thoughts

Whilst the world wakes up, the world falls apart, and that’s a good thing. With more personal reasons for people to search out alternative information, this amplifies the crash of the matrix of control. Ultimately, we really have an unprecedented potential to emancipate ourselves from the economic and ideological enslavement that has characterized the hierarchical system since the conception of civilization.

Unfortunately however there is disunity within those who have woken up to the shadow power structure and the control system that has been established to maintain it. The truth we should all remember though is that we can disagree all we want about how to move forward into the short and long term future, but as long as we recognize the two primary mechanisms for control – namely the money supply and corporate media – then we have a space for uniting in action.

Then, we should remain open to the fact that we’ve all changed our views over time and that we’ll most likely continue to do so as we personally and collectively evolve.

In addition, the following interview is with Steve Keen. He explores the stagnation of the global economy and the bubbles in the Australian and Chinese debt and housing sectors, as well as the legitimacy of the Australian Sovereignty Party’s policy approach to the dishonest money supply and the tax evasion by big money. Enjoy and please share.

3 Reasons Why Introverts Are Undervalued in Today’s Society

introverts undervalued society

It’s undeniable that our society favors assertive extroverted personalities with strong communication skills and underestimates the quiet ones. If you are an introvert, you have probably learned it the hard way.

It could be that you felt unseen in the classroom as a child or teen. Or you may have watched your less competent co-workers get a promotion thanks to their social skills.

It feels unfair, but if you think about our society, it makes perfect sense. The consumerist mindset that has become our second nature inevitably affects the way we treat other people. It seems that everything, including our personal qualities and worth as human beings, is translated into some kind of market value.

In other words, to make other people see your worth in personal or professional life, you need to be able to ‘sell yourself’. Yes, this expression alone tells it all.

You need to know how to make a good first impression, say the right things, and be assertive. If you can’t do it, you are perceived as incapable and uninteresting – whether we are talking about a job interview or an informal social gathering.

But it’s not the only reason why introverts are undervalued in our society. Here are a few more:

1. They are less efficient in teamwork

Communication and teamwork skills are required for all kinds of jobs. It seems that without being able to work in a team, it’s impossible to do your job even if your duties don’t involve interaction with clients.

Introverts are much more efficient when they work on their own and are given a certain extent of independence. They thrive in quiet environments with few distractions and interactions. This is when a quiet person gets the chance to unleash their creative self and make good use of their analytical skills.

Most office jobs don’t give employees this opportunity. Office meetings, group projects, phone calls and all the other attributes of a 9-to-5 job make it almost impossible for an introvert to be productive.

2. They don’t like to be in the spotlight

Sometimes it feels like we are living in a society of attention seekers. Today, you are expected to go public about the most personal matters, such as your relationship and family life.

People share their most intimate thoughts and feelings on social media, post updates about the most trivial events, such as what they had for dinner, and upload countless selfies.

Introverts are among those who still value privacy. They are less likely to showcase their lives online or share the details of their personal affairs with the whole world.

At the same time, the quiet ones don’t like to be in the spotlight at social events. An introvert will never interrupt you. They will listen to you and talk only when they have something important to say. This tendency to avoid attention can be mistaken for insecurity and even a lack of intelligence.

3. They prefer to be real than to be ‘nice’

If you want to make a good impression on others, you are expected to be nice. But what does it mean to be ‘nice’ anyway?

In an introvert’s mind, it equals saying things you don’t mean. Quiet personalities will never bombard you with compliments or say meaningless social pleasantries just to win your fondness. But if an introvert said something nice to you, then be sure that they truly meant it.

Small talk is another component of social relationships most introverts struggle with. To them, it embodies utterly dull, uncomfortable, and pointless conversations they can perfectly do without. For this reason, introverts are often mistakenly believed to hate people.

The truth is that they don’t – they just crave stimulating, meaningful conversations and choose their social circle more carefully than extroverts.

In my book, The Power of Misfits: How to Find Your Place in a World You Don’t Fit In, I write about the reasons why so many introverts feel inadequate and alienated from other people in today’s society. It all goes down to social expectations this personality type has to deal with from a very early age.

But the good news is that every introvert can overcome the negative effects of these expectations and find the right path in this loud, extroverted world.

The Esoteric Meaning Behind Neo’s Interrogation Scene in The Matrix

More than 20 years old now, The Matrix is recognized by fans across the world as being one of the most brilliant films in history, most notably for its deeper meaning and esoteric philosophy.

rxIx7K4Bh6ut7OBECzfaDyQyl1Z-sWruRNXSPGvgcxs

One scene that is particularly intriguing, considering the social climate of today, is Neo’s interrogation by the Agents of the Matrix.

Now, before we dig into the potential hidden meaning here, as I perceive it, and how Neo found himself in this uncomfortable position to begin with, let’s first establish some key points in relation to the overall story line that will help us to appreciate the implications behind this scene a little bit more.

What Does The Character Neo Represent in the Matrix?

Neo in ancient Greek (νέος) means new/young one. This is an important piece of the puzzle to help us understand what the directors of the film are trying to communicate to us. With that said, when we assess Neo’s character in the first film, we find that he is a solitary individual that keeps to himself and is struggling to find deeper meaning in this world by constantly searching the internet.

What Does The Character Morpheus Represent in the Matrix?

Morpheus in Greek mythology is a messenger of the gods. He appears to humans through dreams with the intention of delivering divine Knowledge and Truth. In the Greek mythos, he can appear in almost any form in people’s dreams, which could be because anyone, regardless of race, gender, or outward appearance, can be a messenger of enlightenment and Truth.

The First Matrix Film is About The Beginning of the Journey to Awakening

With the understanding of the deeper meaning behind what Neo and Morpheus’ characters represent in the film, we can now appreciate the intro scene of Neo sleeping (whilst searching for Morpheus) through a different lens of perception and awareness.

You see, Neo sleeping whilst searching online for Morpheus represents the early stages of the Truth seekers journey — “asleep” but still searching for deeper meaning in life — and hoping to find that meaning by seeking out a “messenger” of higher Knowledge and Truth.

Truth is Terrorism in the Empire of Lies

Through his incessant efforts, Neo begins to get closer and closer to finding the elusive Morpheus. This, however, also attracts the unwanted attention of the Agents in the Matrix, which represent the enforcers of the shadow government of this system. Their job is to ensure that no one exposes what the Matrix really is, and how it turns unsuspecting every day human beings into useful resources that it can use and exploit.

matrixpowerpicjpg

The Agents proceed to apprehend Neo and interrogate him, where they make it very clear that they’ve been spying on him and keeping meticulous records of his activities, both online and offline, for quite some time now. As we all know very well today, all around the world intelligence agencies are doing exactly that — tracking what we view online and keeping meticulous records on many of our movements.

The agents, however, do not see Neo as being a major threat to the Matrix system, as he is still in the early stages of his awakening and does not know enough to be a major threat. Instead, they offer him a deal where they will be willing to “wipe the slate clean” on his illegal activities online, if Neo will simply help them track down the man they call Morpheus, who they claim is “a known terrorist” that is “considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous man alive”.

This represents that the single greatest threat to this manipulative system — which is overwhelmingly ruled by deception and exploitation — is any messenger of higher Knowledge and Truth that can potentially awaken those who are still “asleep” to what the proverbial Matrix really is. In fact, one could argue this sort of power struggle has been going on for thousands of years, and is possibly why Socrates was accused of “corrupting the youth” by the ruling class more than 2,000 years ago and subsequently sentenced to death; or why Fred Hampton was assassinated by government authorities in 1969; or, in more recent history, why civilians that were peacefully protesting against Wall Street and the bankers for their part in destroying the world economy in 2008, were targeted by the FBI and even labelled as potential “domestic terrorists“.

Simply put, Truth is terrorism in the empire of lies.

Imaginary Rights

Neo, still being somewhat naïve and unbegun in his journey, rejects the Agent’s offer and demands he get a phone call because “I know my rights!”

To this, Agent Smith retorts, “tell me Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call if you’re unable to speak?”, which results in Neo’s mouth warping in the most eerie of ways.

00011111

This scene represents a lesson that all genuine Truth seekers eventually come to learn — this system is not concerned with human rights nor is it concerned with upholding authentic justice. Instead, it inculcates these beliefs and misperceptions into our minds from a very young age, because it serves to help legitimize its unnecessary existence in the eyes of the unsuspecting public and indoctrinate us as to why we think we need it. But in reality, our government guaranteed “rights” can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye.

In relation to current events, for example, many thousands of people worldwide have been arrested for violating curfew orders; In one Indian state, civilians were told they must take selfies every hour and send it to the authorities to prove that they are staying indoors; in South Africa, some have been fined for not wearing masks while driving their cars; In Boston in the United States, people have even been told that they will be fined if they walk “the wrong direction” down the street; Homeless people in France have reportedly been fined for not staying indoors; Some people have been arrested for attending funerals of loved ones because it violated lockdown orders; Others (including doctors and scientists) have had their right to freedom of speech censored online; In Australia, a pregnant woman was actually arrested in her home for facebook posts that encouraged protesting against the lockdown; According to the International Labor Organization, tens of millions are being pushed into unemployment; and travel all around the world has been severely restricted by these authorities who have taken it upon themselves to be the rulers of this planet by dictating what the rest of us can and cannot do. Whether you agree with these policies or not, these things cannot logically be called “rights” since they are so very easily violated and taken away from us.

We Must Start With the Imagination

There are many other examples that demonstrate how our government given “rights” are more of a comforting illusion than an actual reality, such as the CIA’s secretive Black Site torture programs, which have been done in cooperation with other intelligence agencies and authorities throughout the world. In these programs, people have been kidnapped — without any legal criminal charge or trial — and then taken to undisclosed secret locations where many of them are tortured for many months on end, in ways that are considered to be in violation of international law and basic human rights. The CIA, of course, simply claims they are suspected terrorists. In 2014, however, a Senate Intelligence Committee Report found that at least 26 of the people that were kidnapped and tortured were actually “wrongfully detained”.

Wake Up Neo — You Are the One

Fortunately, Neo manages to escape this unthinkable situation without any serious injury or harm. Soon after, he is contacted by Morpheus, where he is told that he was very lucky that the Agents underestimated his great potential and spared him, because if the Agents had known the great secret that Morpheus knows, then Neo would probably be dead.

Confused by the obvious strangeness of everything taking place, Neo asks Morpheus what the hell is going on, and what exactly is he talking about?? Without hesitation, Morpheus replies to him, “You are the one Neo — You see, you may have spent the last few years looking for me, but I have spent my entire life looking for you.”

This is perhaps the most important lesson the new Truth seeker must eventually come to learn — We are the ones we have been waiting for to change this corrupt world my friends; and we must stop looking for heroes and human leaders to absolve us of this very serious responsibility. Instead, we must all take on the role of Morpheus — which is to awaken as many Neo’s (new minds) as we possibly can, whilst also taking on the role that represents the journey of Neo, by challenging ourselves to become the best version of who we authentically are.

By doing this, we will help to awaken and unleash the unique creative forces of each individual’s problem solving imagination; and we will also find unity in our shared struggle against the injustices, and corruption, of this inhumane system which invariably exploits us all.

If not us, then who? And if not now, then when?

This Clever & Controversial Artwork Will Help You Think Deeper About Society

True artists are what I view as the antithesis of entertainers…

You see, an entertainer is concerned with popular opinion and giving the public what it wants to see. They intoxicate us with mindless amusements to help us escape reality and the everyday stresses of life. But artists, on the other hand, they give us what we need to see; by challenging us to to think deeper about the nature of reality, and the society in which we live, and they do this through the transcendent language of art.

With that said, I decided to collect some of the most thought provoking artwork from around the internet and offered my own little commentary on them…
