WATCH: Survival Currency This episode of James Corbett’s “Solutions Watch” deals with alternative means of transaction in a cashless world.

We all know the problem: in the coming dystopia of social credit scores and central bank digital currencies, our ability to buy and sell will be at the mercy of the criminals in government…Unless we have an alternative means of transaction, that is.

Join James for this exploration of survival currencies that already exist and how these ideas can be adapted to meet your communities’ needs.

I wanted to make a quick note about my impressions of a demonstration against both the Coronavirus measures and corruption held this evening in Limassol, Cyprus. I turned up at the appointed venue of the District Office on Anexartias Street about twenty minutes before it was due to start, at 6 pm. There were about fifteen police officers lined up in front of the District Office building and a couple of cameramen present, which was all to suggest something was going to happen but there was no sign of any crowd. At about ten past six, four people appeared carrying a coffin (a symbol often used at anti-corruption protests in memory of those killed in the power station explosion at Mari in 2010 that was largely attributable to official incompetence) so I moved in towards them and somebody started handing out candles and we stood there with candles burning away in our hands and the speeches began. I am afraid it was all Greek to me, literally, as a Briton living in Cyprus with a limited command of the local language, and I looked round and guessed by now some 200 to 300 people were present. The police officers had all moved to one side, further away from where we were congregated, even though all large gatherings and protests are banned in Cyprus just now. I know a march in the capital Nicosia was violently broken up by the police last weekend, so this surprised me a bit. I don’t know if it was planned or spontaneous, but we then started marching, and went to the Town Hall, about 500 metres awasy, with more speeches there, then back to the District Office with some final speeches there. I looked back as we were marching and I would guess that the numbers had swollen to about 2000. There was absolutely no police presence anywhere along the route of the march, making me think that this may have been an off-the-cuff decision that caught the police unawares. There was a large presence of young people, many of secondary school age. I was impressed by the disciplined and peaceful atmosphere, especially as I was afraid some of the youngsters might start causing damage, which would have been counterproductive. I have returned this evening with my spirits boosted. It only takes a certain critical mass to start shifting the balance in a new direction. I even left the demonstration wondering if those orchestrating the Covid-based agenda may not yet unwittingly end up sparking a revolution. From small acorns huge oaks do grow.

a lady on the bbc radio tonight called the vaccines not normal vaccines but more like tiny information letters later she called them information packets

a letter a delivery a love note a claim of ownership from satan know doubt..

PCR test campaign could be a covert WHO vaccination program.
a new technology developed at Johns Hopkins University to enable secret vaccinations using PCR testing

These tiny devices, known as “theragrippers,” are made of metal and a thin, shape-shifting film. They are coated with heat-sensitive paraffin wax and are no larger than a dust spot

inspired by a parasitic worm that digs its sharp teeth into its host’s intestines, Johns Hopkins researchers have developed tiny, star-shaped microdevices that can attach to the intestinal mucosa and release drugs into the body.

These tiny devices, known as “theragrippers,” are made of metal and a thin, shape-shifting film. They are coated with heat-sensitive paraffin wax and are no larger than a dust spot

bingo

When the paraffin coating on the theragrippers reaches the body temperature, the devices connect autonomously and clamp themselves to the colon wall. The closure action causes the tiny, six-pointed devices to dig into the mucous membrane and stick to the large intestine, where they are held back and gradually release their drug payloads into the body. Finally, the theragrippers lose their grip on the tissue and are removed from the intestine via normal gastrointestinal muscle function.

Note: According to Johns Hopkins University, the Theragrippers are actually administered with a cotton swab
cotton swab A

Here we report that GI-parasite-inspired active mechanochemical therapeutic grippers or theragrippers can survive for 24 hours in the GI tract of living animals by autonomously clinging to the mucous membrane tissue. We also observe a remarkable six-fold increase in the elimination half-life using the release of the model analgesic ketorolac tromethamine mediated by the Ripper. These results provide first-class evidence that shape-changing and self-locking microdevices improve the effectiveness of prolonged drug delivery.

In the region I live in, its been some years now that there is an organization you can join, where you put down what skills you have and then people exchange services not through the euro, but some sort of system of points.
Then there is a cafe nearby, where once a week you can bring any machine to repair, and someone who knows how to do it will do it for free and teach you how to do so.

I dont understand the point of your question since no one is coerced to join the organization. We all are able to do something for others, like helping the local elderly people. Only if you wish to get out of the monetary system and go back to a modern version of exchange of ancient times would you decide to participate.
No one is forcing anyone to get out of the monetary system. Thats precisely the point isnt it, not to enforce your values on others, your lifestyle on others, but to do something common with like-minded ones. We all do that at all times.
We dont become friends with everyone. Only with some. Sincerely I dont see the point of your question. If its simply to be negative of all constructive initiatives, then its sad.

What is a useless job? Aren’t all jobs useful? For example “I need help unloading and stacking two cords of wood” “I need help trimming brush” “I need help with cooking” “ I need help with work on the computer” “I need help with a tutor” “ I need help organizing” “ I need help taking care of the kids”. That being said I have lived in a community that has such an exchange is rarely used but it has led to the creation of a local business for a few people. There was also a similar cafe for bike repair and such, very cool, people just donating there time to help others.

In the above video, Corbett talks of the Austrian town of Wörgl. The key to the success of the Wörgl script was “the fast circulation of the scrip money….14 times higher than the schilling.” And indeed the success of a local currency is dependent upon its trade. The currencies value is in its trade or exchange. An un-traded currency is like a ship sitting in port beyond its scheduled departure time. It has no value when it is not moving transporting loading or unloading. And the currency decreases in value the amount of time it is not being traded. The idea, used in Wörgl, to put a “time/month” stamp to encourage trade is a brilliant idea, making the money worth more when its traded and less if it is un-traded, thus solving the problem of demurrage, sitting in port awaiting departure, that is so prevalent in most local currencies. Anyone considering working in organizing a local currency should note: the circulation of the currency determines its value, the more circulation of the currency the more the value.

It’s why BLM’s “defund the police” was part of the WEF agenda. Like much of the Great Reset it’s something that sounds superficially attractive and many “Woke” types will think it’s progressive – but some thought soon uncovers how sinister the whole thing is..Creating a dumb trigger-happy police force has been part of preparing the ground for this.

They’re doubling down on “climate change” in case people believe the evidence of their own eyes like the Thames freezing over or Texas buried under snow (and the renewable energy system collapsing leaving people in sub-zero temperatures without electricity). Fortunately for them, most people apparently believe the TV over their own personal experience.

One way to spot their bs is when they hitch a real problem to a fake one to carry the latter through. Pollution is real enough – so bracket it with “climate change”. The problem with pollution is that those who caused it think they should be given the power to solve it (while not paying).

Whilst musing on the origin of the term “conspiracy theory” I found this:

https://theconversation.com/theres-a-conspiracy-theory-that-the-cia-invented-the-term-conspiracy-theory-heres-why-132117

It’s worth quoting the last three paragraphs in full:

From at least the 17th century to the 1950s, conspiracy theories were a widely accepted way of understanding the world and often the official versions of events. They were articulated by elites and usually targeted external enemies or subversives who were allegedly trying to undermine the state. It was only during the late 1950s and early 1960s that conspiracy theories started to become a stigmatised way of explaining big events.

One side-effect of this move from the mainstream to the margins of society was that conspiracy theories started to primarily target societal and political elites. They are no longer concerned with alleged plots against the state but with those orchestrated by the state.

Another side-effect of this new stigma was that the label conspiracy theory or theorist became a pejorative term. The Kennedy assassination was the first major instance in which conspiracy theorists accused the state of secretly plotting evil and provided alternative accounts that were then labelled conspiracy theories, as in the 1967 CIA document. So it is hardly surprising that conspiracy theorists – who blame events on the intentional actions of evil people – retrospectively see the emergence of the term as a deliberate attempt to uphold the official version of the Kennedy assassination.

I think the whole point here is that you don’t even need to have a “conspiracy theory” to explain the increasingly pejorative use of the term. You might even say that there is a “natural process” at work. Since these theories” “started to primarily target societal and political elites”, it is inevitable that these theories start to become tainted in the very media that is dominated by the power of these societal and political elites.

Of course, these elites have never ceased to apply conspiracy theories describing the actions of their enemies (other countries, subversive groups within etc.) but these conspiracy theories are never referred to as conspiracy theories since that would negate the power of the pejorative usage.

“Conspiracy theory” in mainstream usage has simply been equated with any criticism of the ruling establishment in the West. That is all it means in 2021. To critique established power is to be a “conspiracy theorist.” Russiagate, which was nothing more than a theory about a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, was not labelled a “conspiracy theory” because it was a conspiracy theory promoted by the establishment.

Whatever the origins of the term, it has become a weapon of the ruling class that is being used more frequently. The space for critical analysis in our countries has been almost completely abolished as this totalitarian process accelerates.

From PCRclaims:

At which point our estimable guide to truth and beauty directs us to one of his own interminable sleuthing pieces linking all covid scepticism to The Right (while conveniently neglecting to mention his own connections to “organisations and networks to support system change strategies across both the public and private sectors, including several governments, parliamentarians, intergovernmental organisations, NGOs and business leaders.” (quote from his own site)

I often agree with Mr Corbett, yet I have to call him out on this one. Like many others, he’s playing into the entire reset game. He should be advising the public to shove the great reset up the asses of those who are suggesting we play along.

Assholes like George Soros, Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab, and all the sleazy medusae of trade and banking, need to get hung. Let’s pander: “Oh please allow us to kiss your rings”

It shouldn’t be down to us to fight for something we’re entitled to. To pull it back as they pull it from.

If it’s our rights at stake then they’ll be carved in stone in enough hallowed corridors of power like the UN and each country’s constitution.

The ECHR understand well enough how many of our rights have been removed without good or moral or legal reason. Where are all the Human Rights Lawyers and their staff and why haven’t they petitoned the heads of state in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy, and so forth ?

But if real food shortages appeared would the masses point the finger at the true source of the problem, no they wouldn’t, they’d tear each other to pieces instead.

They have forsaken everything they profess to hold dear and fight for. In a word, they have become hypocrites – and should no longer be held up as standards of human behavior.

You can not fight government. You can only take it over. If government becomes tyrannical there is nothing you can do with digital currencies, bartering, etc., because it will simply be forbidden and that edict will be backed by force. If we want freedom we have to have a government that supports freedom. And, we don’t need to invent anything. The Constitution of the United States or other Western governmental systems are fine. The problem is that we are not following the Constitution. People need to make this to happen. If a tyranny uses indoctrination and propaganda that must be fought with words. If a tyranny employs force, well that is much more difficult. Basically you cannot overcome a government with force today, technology has made that next to impossible. You have to convince the actors to join your side. Why did the Iranian Revolution succeed? Because the instruments of force, the police and the army would not attack their own citizens … they changed sides. Once that happens the revolution is won. Then the task is to restore a political system that respects freedom.

The Iranian revolution is instructive. For all that the clever knobs tell us the Ayatollah was a tool of France, the Iranian revolution is the closest thing we’ve had to a genuine popular revolution in modern times. And I include the Bolshevik putsch.

It succeeded because the British and Americans made it inevitable. By neutering the opposition and the middle class, they drove Iranians into the only possible outlet, religion.

But not any religion. Attacking Shias is like suppressing Protestants. The latter defeated the superpower of the day, the Spanish empire in the Netherlands. If you target a cohort that is already prepared for suppression, you cannot win.

That is the reason the U.S. unIntelligent agencies fear the forthcoming southern Baptist militias. That is why the media talks about “white supremacists” though they do not exist. They are determined to conjur into existence their own worst nightmare. That arrival is inevitable.

We are not there yet. The U.S. will have to go through the process that Iran experienced but the people will respond in the same way. And they will not be suppressed in conventional terms.

The Phoenix Program, which is close to the heart of America’s ruling psychopaths, will be unleashed at home, as Doug Valentine forecast. Once that is complete the U.S. will have created its own domestic People’s Mujahedin Organization of America. Except, that it will be Christian.

Hello SteveK9: You said: “The problem is that we are not following the Constitution.”

The people enforce the Constitution through civil courts or through civil revolt.

What does the Tenth Amendment specify? Forth Amendment? How about the Second Amendment?

“Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.”

Constitutions have for all intents and purposes been suspended.

A little piece of history I didn’t know was that during the 12 years of NAZI rule in Germany, The Wiemar constitution had not been re-written or replaced, it was still intact, just suspended. Hitler ruled under emergency powers established 3 years before he declared himself Fuhrer. Worth checking out.

Would you say more about how (really existing) constitutional/parliamentary systems of government are fine for people to defend their liberties/rights or otherwise make things happen? For one, it seems the history of the US Constitution, established by a coup, does not provide that much persuasive example of being anything but a ruling class cover, especially with the post-WWII creep of fascism, now in full gallop. And isn’t revolution in substance a crisis of governmental authority calling for a new (constitutional) foundation for the body politic and social relations?

So the alt right supported by the CIA, creates little ‘gurus’ who expose their actions and blames our ‘liberal democracy’ and all its institutions in an attempt to destroy it.

The truth about the horrors discussed are shocking but when Talkradio, Nigel Farge, Corbett or Alex Jones exposes them, remember that they are an interregnal part of that horror show and are there to lead you away from real democratic solutions.
They teach you to be powerless and ineffective. Only democratic mass movements have power, which is why they lead you away from taking democratic action.

The meaning of “small government” in practice means aspects of government that serve the interests of the majority of the population (the tax payers), like the Clean Water Act or Social Security should be small and underfunded. The “small government” advocates do not mean making the intelligence agencies or the Pentagon should have smaller budgets and staff. In other words, “small government” advocates want tax dollars to directly subsidize them!

It was only this year that James Corbett shifted gears from his Propaganda Watch series to this Solutions Watch series. A very bad move which, I suspect, will lose him a lot of subscribers.

People are always clamoring for “Solutions.” So he’s giving them “Solutions” – but in doing so, demonstrating how and why there really are no “Solutions” to the dilemma humanity faces except for the people to wake up.

The thing about Corbett is that he researches every single thing he presents. He did a report on comparing the death stats for 2020 against previous years – I’m hoping OffG will feature that report. It shows how over researching can actually work against a person as well as for the person.

I agree. The shift to “solutions” is a bad move for him (and for us). And I think that the problem is actually ideological: he calls himself an anarcho-capitalist. Besides the inherent contradictions between the two terms, each political ideology on its own terms is problematic for societal solutions that have any fairness about them. Historically. anarchism has never worked on a scale larger than a municipality. And capitalism? Well, I’ll just say this – the Great Reset was brought to us by capitalists.

In equating James Corbett with Alex Jones, you betray that you know nothing of either. For years I have said that Alex Jones is where they send unconventional ideas to be suited up in tin foil. He is totally over the top.

Corbett, on the other hand, is a meticulous researcher. Granted, that by itself is not a “purity test.” However, he doesn’t simply toss around talking points; he fleshes them out – and if need be, dismisses them as without merit. Granted, also, he could be controlled opposition; but that’s far less likely than someone like Alex Jones.

All fair and good but what of the left wing of the “CIA” (whatever that means with a bazillion intelligence agencies, companies, and PR firms putting out propganda).
Amy Goodman, Howard Zinn, Daniel Ellsburg, Michael Moore, etc as big gurus that spread fear porn and horrific facts about the Corporate Fascist hell we live in and blames our Capitalist American Empire and all its institutions in an attempt to put it in perpetual faux revolution.
The left is all about indoctrination into the system. Enfranchisement into a process that will award no normal person any real choice but provide them with fake views so they feel like they do.
Clowntown leftist rhetoric isn’t going to accomplish anything at this point. It’s 2021. Best to throw away all of it and look at reality.

“survival is not the main motivator in human actions”

Totally agree with that. The main motivator in my actions is to be able to improvise over, say, Giant Steps better than yesterday (this guy is alright). To make the next solo better than the last. To play whatever I play better than the last time.

Now, you could argue that I do that with the intention of seducing women, and procreating, and that probably was pretty big part of my motivation when I was a kid and got into this music nonsense, but I’ve done a fair share of that, and it sure is not the main motivator my actions … 😉 …

Analogously, if you examine the actions of such fuckheads as Bill Gates, survival is not the main motivator, even though one could argue that his propensity to hoard resources stems from the survival instinct. My guess is that the main motivator behind Billy Boy’s actions is psychopathic revenge. Revenge for the fact that he is the nerd par excellence, that he was probably ridiculed in his younger years, maybe bullied and smacked over his nerdy face here and there, no girl would touch him with a six-foot pole, and so on.

“major 7 in the natural minor” …. “funnily enough reverses its use”

Tovarish Death, I have no frigging idea what you’re talking about, and I’m afraid that neither do you.

The natural minor has b6 and b7, no major 7. The two common minor scales that have a major 7 are the harmonic minor and the melodic minor ascending, the former having a b6 and the latter natural 6. The reason for the natural six in the melodic minor, tovarish Death, is to avoid the augmented second in the harmonic minor scale in a V-I cadence. Guess why. It’s because the fucking augmented second is reminiscent of Arab music (its signature interval), the last thing the Catholic Church, which was kinda in charge of music back in the day, wanted.

The jazz minor in itself is pretty much useless. Useful are some of its modes, especially the altered scale, Lydian b7, and Lydian #5. Well, useful are the notes in the scales that can be used as tensions. That’s because of the overtone harmonic series – you dig?

En tout cas, the next time you give somebody lessons in jazz theory or musicology, kindly ascertain that you know what the fuck you’re talking about.

Merci d’avance.

So i brought some gold not much and when the system went down March 2020 the gold shops & pawn shops where closed due to bs19!!!
i laughed so much and the post wasn’t working well either due to bs19.
So i could not send the gold to the online seller and some online buyers didn’t want to touch things due to bs19 it spreads fear.
At one point going out was illegal also.

So basically i was left with gold and learnt when and if the system goes down
gold will not help ya much but the shops did except cash and cards.
if you got a good connections credit / trading something for something will also helped ya.

Starving vagrant #3 “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy

George Mc
George Mc
Feb 18, 2021 10:58 AM

On the topic of “survival” as motivator:

Certain non-Marxist thinkers like Thorstein Veblen and GG Preparata reckon that survival is not the main motivator in human actions. One very clear alternative motivator is power, prestige, hierarchy. Some people – perhaps even a large majority – would be happier living in a poverty-stricken environment as the top dog rather than in a world of plenty where everyone has an equal share.

But even outside power, there are motivators other than survival that are important to people. I have heard that when people suddenly find they must move quickly and go on the road, the stuff they pack is often not the stuff that makes sense from a survivalist perspective. Indeed, it may even be a positive hindrance. Stuff like unwieldy objects having sentimental value. Or objects that give a sense of identity and belonging.

Then there is the question of what kind of environment is deemed “necessary”. Does anyone think in terms of the simple basics of life? e.g. the minimal amount of food and water to stay alive? I would say that what is considered “necessary” and even “natural” is largely a matter of conditioning from birth.

A guy called Mark Ames wrote a fascinating book called Going Postal in which he compared the increasingly frequent shootings in American workplaces to the occasional outbursts of violence from slaves back in the days of African American slavery. Ames’s point is that the slave uprisings were actually incredibly rare and usually revolved around isolated individuals with feverish delusional visions – usually of a religious nature (since that would have been the only education the African Americans got beyond their working chores). The point is that the slaves were raised to be slaves and therefore found slavery natural. Those more likely to rebel were those freshly captured from Africa – and obviously because, for them, slavery was not natural.

So, from the above, it isn’t so much when basic needs are threatened that people become rebellious – but when they experience a sudden slump in what they are used to.

And what they are used to may not necessarily be material goods that support basic human needs e.g. if they are into power, they are happy to surrender any amount of creature comfort as long as the power structure can be maintained – with them at the top of course. If they are hooked on TV, large amounts of food and safe environmental devices can be surrendered as long as they get to keep those nice programmes making them feel happy etc.

(Though, power may not be a matter of what some people are “used to”. It seems to be a basic drive that many have – and perhaps we all have it to an extent?)

What intellectuals usually forget is Nature. Specifically, Evolution. From that perspective, all that matters is reproduction, which is inextricably linked to survival.

Unfortunately, Evolution backed itself into a corner when it created a species with no natural predators. But it saw the error of its ways and invented power, which leads inevitably to self destruction of an entire species.

We are not just at the mercy of criminals in government but also in the courts! For example, on Tuesday a court in the Hague ruled that a curfew should be stopped. The Netherlands government got the court to suspend judgment which meant that the curfew will continue.
That’s why the current statutory system needs to be replaced with a system based on common law so that the criminals in office can be removed and prosecuted. Join the Common Law Court which is now international but needs your support.

Talking of resets, it seems that this last 12 months has been a busy one for the handlers of the GM version of a human being, Greta Thunberg.

On the run up to the launch of operation Covid we were served a ‘documentary’ produced, written, directed and funded by Bill Gates. About Bill Gates. It prepped us all about his modesty, success and generosity and the pain he feels for all of us. It was as though they knew the world needed to know him the following year. I think it was on the comedy channel.

Now be ready for one of St William’s Good Club billionaires who sat in on the plans to vaccinate the world and help promote a crock of shit about the climate, Oprah. She’s been given the scripted questions to ask her ‘special guest’, Greta. Greta was busy having the wires behind her ears tweaked and her trigger words tested by a few of her handlers from the UN / NWO/ CIA.

But Greta the robot is up against it now. The world has eyes and ears everywhere. She of all people should have realised that given the fame and fortune she now has but denies.

Her latest stunt was to involve herself in the headline protests in India. The trigger word was spoken and Greta began to move.

”The list gave a series of tips on what to post, asking her to also repost and tag other celebrities tweeting about it, including pop star Rihanna.”

”As well as the Twitter storm, the “toolkit” she shared also suggested highlighting planned demonstrations at Indian embassies.”

Oh dear. So the impossible-to-ban-for-spreading-bullshit Thunberg is still allowed to spread the good word like Monsanto spreads it’s poisons on our food. Where are those fact checkers when you need them.

This odd little creature has been moulded from the cradle by two weird wannabe celebrity parents . They are living through her. Unfortunately, her handlers have difficulty trying to merge with the background. They stick close to her in case she tries to think or speak for herself and exposes her dire lack of knowledge of the area she pretends to be an expert in.

She displays a few MK hallmarks to be sure. It certainly isn’t conventional behaviour that she shows us.

There’s a 60 second video too on this post. It shows what happens when her earpiece goes wrong and her trigger words don’t reach her. A simple question about what she thinks becomes like a jigsaw puzzle to a monkey.

See also the accompanying photographs of her handlers making sure she’s ‘in working order’ for the public..

The hipsters and pseudo left fakers will positively lap up the Greta “interview” with Oprah. In fact, I predict an, er, epidemic of swooning right across the world, but most especially in the more gentrified urban areas of the West.
So, interesting (not really) that Greta’s main handler is Lisa Marie Neubauer of One Foundation. I already knew she had handlers.
But, a lot more interesting is who actually funds One Foundation. Hmmm, Bill & Melinda Gates ✔️ George Soros ✔️ Bono ✔️. Wait… Bono?
That snivelling, sycophantic sucker upperer of such sterling human beings as Tony Blair, Obama, the WEF glitterati, etc. Bono of Social Justice Warrior fame? My super low estimation of this turd just went even lower.
Will see if I can dig up some dirt on this Poetic Justice Foundation, however I have a feeling I won’t be surprised at who is funding them.
Wrong Kind Of Green blog has done excellent analysis on a lot of these fake NGO’s and who is actually funding them, and how they began; like Avaaz, Change dot org, Get Up (in Australia). The money trial usually leads back to the Rockefellers or Ford Foundation or Carnegie.

Bono is unique. When he opens his mouth to sing, i can listen all day. When he opens it to speak i could happily place his face into a vice and never stop squeezing.

He invented selfies before we had the internet. If there’s a politician / celeb/ holy figure it’s law that they have to have a snap with him. His ‘moment’ following the death of one of the Popes was a real toe -curler. He took to the stage amid silence. We waited for the poet to share his pain and speak for the world. What did we get ?

‘ ‘ee wuz da best frunt man da church evva had ”

The reducing of the role of Pope to the lead singer of a group was unintentionally insulting and hilarious in one line.

He was the first high profile billionaire to have it ‘leaked’ that he was a large share holder in the CIA’s Zuckerberg -fronted fakebook. I think the ho Madonna was next. She’s constantly banging on about the kabbalah cult and other things she doesn’t understand.

Bono is typical of the global superstar’ rock aristocracy. They can sing or play but are stupid and dull.

They have agents and managers who kissed a few arses at Eton or some other freak show who do their tweeting for them and guide them to the right spotlights with the right scripts. He should marry Oprah. Oprah Bono. A fine name. Backwards it’s O ‘nob Harpo. The lost Marx brother.:)

I agree with wardropper that thinking “survival” is the wrong way to go.
 
While survival might generally mean the ability to live as opposed to croaking, in the present circumstances it carries the connotation of an act trough which a person overcomes a life-threatening event and goes back to what was a stable, prosperous life, maybe a bit shook up after, for instance, a fucking shark was gnawing on his leg.
 
People need to aspire at a bit more than mere survival. In the very least, the kind of existence they’ve had prior to COVID-1984.
 

While Corbett’s suggestions are good, let’s face it, they alone won’t be too much of a monkey wrench in Schwab’s and the other motherfuckers’ plans. Given how entranced most people are with digitization, the most pragmatic action at this point would be massive pressure on politicians to ensure that whatever currency digitization is in the works will result in as little as oppression as possible, or no oppression at all. I’m afraid that in the short term, that’s the best people can do. In the long term, people need to formulate a new view of the world and promote it, oppose the world of Schwabs’ and Gates’s, figure out how to protect the individual from hierarchical globalization.

At least I hope … ha ha …

I would say that we are up against the people that pull the strings of the Gates, Charles, Fauci, Schwab crowd. And supply the resources. I think they might be a little smarter than their minions.
