WATCH: The Markets are Rigged James Corbett pulls back the curtain on the Wall Street casino and reveals how the house always wins the rigged games.

At base, the markets are a con game where the rich and powerful employ a raft of confidence men to lure suckers into the latest mania.

In this game, the suckers are the general public who are left holding the bag as the market bubble bursts while the smart money swoops in to buy up the leftover assets at pennies on the dollar.

In this week’s edition of The Corbett Report, James Corbett pulls back the curtain on the Wall Street casino and reveals how the house always wins the rigged games.

Well… James fails to mention the real movers and shakers in the investment arena. The London Stock Exchange leads the world. Where is the world’s first time meridian located? Greenwich, London. Duh!

How about those commodities and futures markets?

Excerpted from: Chicago Mercantile Exchange – Wikipedia

“The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) (often called “the Chicago Merc”, or “the Merc”) is an American financial and commodity derivative exchange based in Chicago and located at 20 S. Wacker Drive. The CME was founded in 1898 as the Chicago Butter and Egg Board, an agricultural commodities exchange. Originally, the exchange was a non-profit organization.

The Merc demutualized in November 2000, went public in December 2002, and merged with the Chicago Board of Trade in July 2007 to become a designated contract market of the CME Group Inc., which operates both markets. <<< [Note timelines]

The chief executive officer of CME Group is Phupinder Gill, Terrence A. Duffy is the president and executive chairman of the board, and Leo Melamed is chairman emeritus. On August 18, 2008, shareholders approved a merger with the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and COMEX. The Merc, CBOT, NYMEX and COMEX are now markets owned by the CME Group.

Today, the Merc trades several types of financial instruments: interest rates, equities, currencies, and commodities. It also offers trading in alternative investments, such as weather and real estate derivatives, and has the largest options and futures contracts open interest (number of contracts outstanding) of any futures exchange in the world.

As a Designated Self-Regulatory Organization (DSRO), the CME had primary regulatory-audit authority over firms such as MF Global.

CME also pioneered the CME SPAN software that is used around the world as the official performance bond (margin) mechanism of 50 registered exchanges, clearing organizations, service bureaus and regulatory agencies throughout the world.

So Starmer’s electoral disaster becomes the opportunity to bury completely any traces of Corbynism. All previous manifesto commitments are to be ripped up “We need transformative and modernising change said Klaus Starmer.

Mandelson shows the real agenda without the need to pretend to be vaguely diplomatic. ““There are some in the party who think… our only problem in 2017 or 2019 was that we were ahead of our time and that the experience of the pandemic means that the public will now see the efficacy of our previous policies. It is a remarkable conceit to tell the voters that they are now allowed to see the error of their false consciousness.” It’s 2017 they want to bury, offering a mixture of leftist economics and Brexit. Most will recognise the dog-whistle of that last bit. he then went on to tell Corbyn and McDonnell, mere elected MPs after all, to shut up in the manner befitting of someone who once said the era of representative democracy was dead.

Who doesn’t think that some sort of ‘Green New Deal’ on steroids isn’t already written and waiting to be unleashed to a trumpet of media approval? It’ll only show how much of ‘The Great Reset’ they think they can now openly declare.

This is indeed off topic:

For fans of political correctness – and aren’t we all? – from the Graud:

“Who’s missing? Top author stirs anger with ‘too white’ history

Richard Cohen’s new book, which has reportedly been dropped by his US publisher despite extensive additions, is still set for British release next month

It has taken nearly a decade to research and write, and runs to more than 750 pages. But The History Makers, described as “an epic exploration of those who write about the past”, has itself been rewritten after its author failed to take into account enough black historians, academics and writers.

Richard Cohen was told by his publisher to produce new chapters and expand others after failing to sufficiently acknowledge the roles of black people and African Americans.”

The thing that really makes me vomit is that, though I’m sure there are plenty of black history makers, what we have here is this decision beforehand to include examples simply as a principle I e. “Oh God I better hurry up and dig somebody up quick! Hell – anyone will do!”

And you just know you’re on a precipice where, no matter how much you dig up, it will never be enough – until the black stuff outweighs the white stuff and then the whites start complaining. And the rulers have instigated a big punch up yet again.

Nah I’m afraid the COVID rap is going to continue for a while yet going by a comment I read on FB:

“Why do rangers fans think that it’s OK, in the middle of a pandemic, to gather and “celebrate” . Its not OK… and in the next few weeks you will all know why..”

What I love about that is that last bit of unhesitating certainty. Just wait AND YOU WILL KNOW!

I have been keeping an eye on James Corbett for years and there have been many insightful videos but I have been growing increasingly suspicious lately about his narrative. The very fact that he is never critical on Russia and/or Israel is at least to say “strange”…
So, my suggestion is – don’t cheer up or follow any narratives, gather facts then think and make conclusions on you own.

Phony outrage powers the show for the concerned Lefty. The Sunday Times:

“AstraZeneca’s boss cashes in on righteousness over Covid jab

The firm’s vaccine is a triumph for humanity but not its shareholders
How much should the man who saved the world be paid? Whatever he wants, would be the most common response. This, more or less, has been the approach of the board of AstraZeneca, which has broken all sorts of corporate guidelines in setting a new pay package for its chief executive …”

And at this point, you could write the article yourself. But note the surreptitiously smuggled in memes: the vaccine is a “triumph for humanity” produced by “the man who saved the world” (???!!!)

But there’s plenty of vaccine supporting outrage here for the “right on” contingent. Especially this bit:

“… the British press, normally the deadliest and most relentless opponent of “fat cat” pay awards (????!!!), has been almost entirely acquiescent.”

What a curious warped dimension they project!

dumptheguardian.com/theobserver/commentisfree/2021/may/16/do-people-believe-covid-myths

The usual bollocks? Well, yes, mostly – the claim that those who believe what they call Covid myths is because of a lack of numeracy is particularly laughable. They use the familiar technique of mixing genuine concerns with their own created fake myths (like Covid being cause by 5G. Does anyone remember that now? It was David Icke who put it about).

However there’s an interesting bit in there that the claim that a survey showed 20% believed Covid is a Jewish conspiracy was produced by the nature of that survey. Just another one of those “whoops, we badly designed our survey” rather than a deliberate attempt to smear anyone questioning Covid as an anti-semite, of course….

Not such a bad article, I thought. It mentions numeracy but actually talks of “data literacy” and goes on to explain one way of manipulating surveys. It then suggests a good way of getting people to believe what you want them to believe is to get in quick: tell the world that it was all the fault of people eating bat soup. Better data literacy might have encouraged people to question the presence of the bats in that part of China.

Difficult to get anything more truthful past the editors, I suppose. In a similar vein, I’ve noticed how the early articles are often better than the Guardian standard dross. First thing, the “Indian variation” was quite possibly, maybe, ever so slightly, no less infectious than Covid Original. By lunchtime we were all doomed, doomed I tell ye.

Today’s live Coronavirus is far worse, headed with Matty Handcock saying there is nothing to worry about but with several journalistic additions about how they are dropping like flies in places like Bolton (nudge, nudge, hint, hint).

Chris Harman’s “Peoples’ History of the World” noted that civilizations go through a “rise and fall” pattern. And what marks the moment of decline is the point when the rulers’ level of shielded arrogance combined with their unquenchable thirst for greater and greater luxuriance can no longer be supported by the structure supporting them. And the present situation sees this principle on a scale never before possible.

What is curious about this Harman observation is that it comes in a book espousing a Marxist point of view and yet he sees this pattern repeating through all history I.e. before capitalism too. Interesting.

Firstly, I suspect “fall” is more accurately described as “morph”. By now it must be obvious the Britsh Empire didn’t decline (“declinism” was a myth to get Britain into the EEC as a building block to globalism) but morphed into the American Empire and the Commonwealth. The Roman Empire morphed into the Vatican and Byzantium. Even an empire as apparently obliterated as Carthage appears to have morphed given how Carthaginian gods seem to be worshipped (or does Baal keep cropping up by accident e.g. obelis = Baal’s phallus).

Secondly, if the US Empire is going down it can cause a level of destruction unprecedented in human history (probably the destruction of the whole world although I have some doubts about this). It’s a completely different ball game to the decline of previous empires.

In the novel Valis, Philip K. Dick wrote of an all-pervasive system of social control that transcended, or existed outside of, our time-space continuum. He called it “The Black Iron Prison”.

Protagonist Horselover Fat, a fictionalized analogue of Dick, experienced a vision or epiphany informing him that “the Empire never ended”: we are living in a kind of continuation of the worst of the Roman Empire, a black iron prison that basically keeps us occluded, i.e. trapped in lies and illusion.

The frightfully haughty Spectator reviewer is a mite bored by Van’s new songs,

“Musically, Morrison’s anti-lockdown, mask-burning meltdown could have been rather fun. Instead, his new album is too long and a bit lazy, his ire wrapped in rote …” etc.

Reportedly, Eric Clapton, who recently sang a anti-covid 1984 song that Morrison wrote caved and got jabbed. I might have even read that on Off Guardian. If he did cave, I am guessing that, like most people, he gets his knowledge of the world and God from tv. No one visiting “Vaccine Impact” or “The Covid Blog” or “Children’s Health Defense” would get the jab, unless he or she was insane.

I have to conclude (and left a comment on the site that JohnEss linked to stating it, which comment may or may not show) that Eric is more interested in looking like a rebel than being one. I guess the charade is better than nothing. Eric is still light years away from the evil Jagger. But, How can we say he’s on our side in this? We can’t. His excuse was that the propaganda said the jab was safe. Really? That’s it! His letter reveals, to me at least, that he has not cared enough to inform himself.

I gotta be honest here, but whenever there’s discussion on the financial markets, my eyes tend to glaze over, and my mind starts to wander.

The level of absolute corruption and greed is just off the charts. All these maggots feeding at the altar of mammon. Yet they all get away with it as Corbett detailed – “the investigation was abruptly stopped” “the report was redacted” “the probe was eventually dropped”.

I discovered a free streaming site, that, unlike EVERY other one I’ve ever visited, is completely devoid of pop ups. Are they up to no good all the same? Probably. But that’s their problem. Anyway, as a bloke without a tv set, I get all of my entertainment by downloading shows, movies or watching something I can stream for free. When I found this site, I couldn’t believe it. As I was looking through stuff to see what might interesting I came across an ELO concert at Wembley. I love ELO. I didn’t plan to watch the whole thing, but it was so damned good, I did. I can’t see it cheered me up – nothing right now can do that – but it was a nice break from digging through evil in order to find material for my blog.

I couldn’t help thinking, as I was looking at all of the people smiling, singing, dancing and enthralled that, today, most of them would have been there masked and loving it. Tell me I’m wrong.

An anti-lockdown protest in Manchester seems to be getting a little coverage in the media – though it seems to be local media. So presumably another event deemed “peripheral”? Therefore should Boris decide to once again go through his little display of reluctance and accede longer lockdown, the media will portray this as another triumph for “public sentiment”.

I was there, the atmosphere was great, with a wide cross section of people from society in attendance, lots of open support from the general public, along with apathy and disdain from masked up normies. I’d estimate 7 to 10 thousand people in attendance, reported as hundreds in the press of course. Speaking to a lovely old fella who has been going to them all along and he said this was the biggest one by far, so it’s a growing movement. I think a lot of people are going to be mighty pissed off when Johnson’s handlers tell him to whip the carrot away from people’s noses at the last moment, which has very obviously been the plan all along.

The “experts” and “top advisers” with, of course, the full backing of that majestic “Science” behind them deliver the commands of the rulers. These commands will be echoed throughout the media. Boris will do a little dance of disgruntlement, but then he will be “dragged kicking and screaming” into a prolongation of the lockdown to the jubilation of the phony Left and their useful idiots.

A line from the otherwise useless Rawnsley from a while back has stuck with me – that Johnson won’t survive a fourth lockdown. It was a revelation of where this is meant to head in UK domestic terms.

Johnson is intended to be the UK’s Trumpian lesson – that populism doesn’t work and chaos and disaster inevitably follow. The public will thus cling to their technocratic overlords even while being enslaved, impoverished and poisoned by them. There are two pathways they have lined up – either the Starmer/Rayner route of the mini-me version of Biden/Harris or the National Government route of some grand coalition in the face of national crisis. I suspect the former is the preferred option because it maintains the two party illusion with the latter as the back-up if the public simply won’t swallow Labour however bad things get.

As reported in the Mail on Sunday (so must be true !), the Indian variant really isn’t any more virulent than previous strains and, to date, 4 people have died of/with it.
In addition, it is reported that “modellers” haven’t been taking into account “behavioural factors” and so the resulting data is flawed.

The blatant charade that is the covid-as-deadly-plague narrative means that it is an insult to pay any attention to the “technical details” of the “Outer Hebridean variant” or whatever. With the obvious con of the initial figures from Italy and the repetition of this pathetic Halloween show in the UK, not to mention the unbelievably cheeky fraud of the PCR magic lanterns, I don’t know why anyone even bothers with the probably computer generated “scientific” gobbledegook descending on the media like a vast smoke screen.

So we had the South African variant and now the Indian one, I fully expect the Hebrides to be next. I can imagine a room up there with various hack writers lounging around and guffawing over how far they can push it. The Blackpool variant? The transgender variant? The Harry Potter fan variant? You could have all these and more being solemnly intoned by the news readers.

One word: usury.

The chief manipulators of the markets, going back before 1929, are the likes of Goldman Sachs, who are fronts for the Federal Reserve/ central banks. Theyre just getting to the point where they may not need the Zappa scenery any longer.

“In other words, the federal government is nationalizing large swaths of the financial markets. The Fed is providing the money to do it. BlackRock will be doing the trades.” — Jim Bianco

“I’m not making predictions about that, but when you realize that with MMT banks like Goldman and Morgan are no longer needed to implement policy and the crazies have taken over the asylum, it may just be we’re far closer to the Great Sell Out of the banks than anyone has previously contemplated.” — Tom Luongo

I feel this is a honey pot to catch as many of the unsuspecting as possible in the upcoming collapse. Here in Australia, in-line with the rest of the world, the cash rate just about has a pulse.

So, in the home of the real estate portfolio owner, the property market is off the chart. Houses are selling immediately and for 20%, sometimes 30% more than the listed price.

That is all wrapped up by PM Scummo and the MSM as a miracle of economic recovery. But I feel it’s the open door of the trap.

Once the maximum number of people are in the maximum amount of debt, the door will close and anyone on the inside will lose everything. And I mean, everything.

And who’s waiting to mop up at 10c in the 1$?

The banks create the “money” – fiat. They collect the interest on the “money”. The latest wheeze reinstating 5% deposits on properties up to £600,000 is a tour de force – defaults are covered by the taxpayer I believe.

Add to that, that the “zero % interest/negative interest scam” never benefits the little people. Their credit card interests go up, their consumer credits are harder to come by and in the end – it is the ‘banks’ that borrow for zero and loan out for 25% apr.

The sad part is the unsuspecting really do not demand the fed res 0% interest rate to trickle down to them.

That’s just hilariously true. Allow me to add to this – in a sarcastic way.

Yesterday I was standing at the entrance door of a shop gazing at all the stuff sticking on it. The hand written sign said: “Entrada solo con tapa boca!” (Entrance only with face mask!”)

Right next to the hand written sign was a large sticker with pictograms about what you are not allowed to wear if you want to enter the store (pre-plandemic):
A motorcycle helmet, a hat, sunglasses, a baclava and a face mask.

And that can be computed how? Only considering total insanity.

From May 2020:

THE RIGHT VIRUS AT THE RIGHT TIME
A report from the Bank of International Settlements (B.I.S.), the central bank that governs all the other central banks in the world, raised the alarm and “strangely” failed to mention the names of the 4 main Wall Street banks that were involved. They warned that the problem was also expanding, affecting the currency market.

This is the market in which European and non-European banks obtain dollars for their operational needs for transactions denominated in US dollars. This sector also works in a similar way to the ‘Repos’ and consequently the problem spreads and becomes a global issue.

……

I’ll explain it in a boorish manner: if you lend me 80 euros and I guarantee you a bond worth 100, you feel safe. But if during the loan, its face value is no longer 100 but 70, then you ask me to be covered by the guarantee of the 30 that’s missing. Where do I get those 30€ I don’t have from? And here the crisis begins. If these dynamics multiply by thousands and trillions of high-speed algorithmic exchanges, with tangles and intertwining of cross-collateral all supported by high-risk loans, (often the collateral is borrowed in turn and re-mortgaged innumerable times) it is clear how in an instant everything can explode if you don’t intervene with buckets of money like the Federal Reserve did, reaching up to 1000$ billion a day.

Then, as if by a miracle, Covid-19 arrives. And what happens?

The central banks are therefore authorized to intervene in an limitless way. Thousands of millions or hundreds of billions of dollars are created from thin air and are distributed not only to banks but also injected directly into major companies. With this extraordinary measure, the flaw in the REPO market is moderated.

This step is a little more difficult to understand, but the overall amount of loans granted to individuals and companies also contributes to the calculation of the overall risk which affects the interest rate calculation. The higher the risk, the higher the rate. If the risk of the REPO market which is interbank, increases, the possibility of default increases as well. Let’s say it once and for all: interest rates must not increase! If they do: it’s the end.

The whole of the economy is denominated in a value which is a unit of debt. When you hear talks about Dollars, Euros, Yen, Francs, Crowns, Yuan, etc., we must always remember that currencies are nothing more than debt units issued on the basis of a debt economy. All money is loaned into existence. Money exists only after a bank creates it by indebting someone: states, individuals or companies. People focus mainly on the stock market, which has nothing to do with it, It has completely different dynamics and even in the case of a paralyzed economy like that of today, it could even break new highs, thanks to all the new liquidity created that has no other place to flow. The real issue is the debt market. People still hadn’t realized that a gigantic economic crisis was coming.

Nobody says it because they are difficult things to explain and few have the desire or competence and people do not want to make the effort to understand these things, which therefore can go on, almost secretly without anyone worrying about it. But it is absolutely necessary to understand that the virus has stopped an economic crisis far worse than the one we are experiencing now.

We can say that the virus really arrived at the right moment. If it had not arrived, interest rates would have shot up and the debt market and that of derivatives (2.5 million billion – B.I.S. estimate) would have exploded into a supernova with proportions much, much worse than what happened. A crisis for which there is no tool to manage it.

Quigley of course identified the BIS as the central bank of central banks in ‘Tragedy and Hope’.

I do however think that saying Covid was a response to market collapse is putting the cart before the horse. My view is that it’s more probable the banks knew this was coming and exploited it to cash in beforehand knowing that they’d be dug out of whatever hole they got themselves into. There’s too much (like Operation Lockstep, Event 201, the media predictive programming and the numerology of 2020) that suggests to me the pandemic was long planned in advance to happen when it did (i’ll allow some possibility it was meant to be later and was brought forward).

But for most of us here this university-level crash course in human iniquity is over, and it’s not fun to overwork any worthwhile human endeavour.

For myself, I’ve run out of patience with other people’s descriptions of the depths to which our representatives have clearly sunk, and I suspect that if we are honest with ourselves, all of us here could think up another thousand similarly filthy acts of depredation which could be visited upon mankind in the near future.

Yes, there are chock people who know since decades that the markets are rigged. The term “market” in itself is gaslighting par excellence. A real market is something else altogether. Just go to a real market (maybe not the Wuhan fish market) and observe what is happening there.

There is no market with stocks. It is indeed a “Stock Casino” with the little guys always losing more than they might ever win in this rigged gamble. Like a roulette table with a little break, like playing cards that are marked.

The whole notion of “stocks up – economy up – poor suckers up versus stocks down – economy down – poor suckers down” has to be the greatest con operation of them all. Because poor suckers are always down. One needs to be member of the Casino to win.

However, based on the insider trading before September 11th, anybody playing with at least one full deck of cards, knew since that moment that everything is rigged. Everything is rigged – because legislative, financial casinos and the big club are inseparably joined at the financial hip. Laws are made for the big club – by those who count themselves to the Kast of very important big club caterers.

What is missing again though, are ways out of this perpetual situation. How to get out of a scheme that has been run for ages – accepted by those who eagerly leave it to whatever ‘leaders’ are handy and promising to further one’s own interests.

Are those so called ‘leaders’ only able to heed to violence by the oppressed and exploited? Do they need the sight of the gallows/guilloutine applied to their corrupt peers? What is it, that has the potential to stop these true parasites from continuing to fool and exploit the working class – generation after generation?

This is indeed the question. “How much longer?” Considering the timeline of this scheme and its worst outcomes (“great depressions”, “financial meltdowns”, “mortgage crisis”), it is unfathomable to observe that this is continuing even one more day.
The more disturbing question has to be:
“How much more artificial suffering and pain, disenfrenchisement and erased positive outlooks will it take for the many to stop the scheme from continuing even one more day?”
Are there really so many henchmen, peddlers and agitators employed by the schemers, that they can pacify/discourage the many from cleaning house? Or is it simply the massive propaganda operations that are played out everywhere?

Quite ironically, John Carpenter showed how it has to be done in his underrated masterpiece They Live, by Ray Nelson. He also showed the clearing of a homeless camp with disturbing accuracy – decades before it turned to reality.

In the movie, the main protagonists realize there is only one way to end the grip the “Aliens” have on mankind: Destroy the broadcasting tower that sends the signal that hypnotizes the human population. Odd, that this is so apt a comparison. “They” are not “Aliens” – but those who control our narrative and have us hypnotized. They are truly alien to the decent many.

The broadcasting signals will have to turned off in our dystopia as well – by all means necessary.

“The term “market” in itself is gaslighting par excellence.”

It’s one of the first examples of a virtual reality replacing an actual thing. Even bigger gas-lighting was dubbing the VR market “the invisible hand”. It’s a transparent Freemasonic joke. All direct connections between Adam Smith and Freemasonry have been suppressed – but his membership of “the Scottish Enlightenment” and the Oyster Club speak volumes. Smith lost his father at an early age which is something one often finds with Freemasonic assets.

And have been doing so for a very long time. However, the time span They were able to run their scheme is in no way an indicator of how much longer their scheme will work.

The oligarchs won’t surf the next crest out, though. The wave has gotten huge and if You ever saw the prime surf spot “Jaws” on Maui, You know what a modest 100 foot wave can do to surfers that overestimated their own surfing skills. This time around, the hyper rich won’t be able to simply surf it out. They and their boards will get crushed by a gigantic wave that may flatten their curve of exploitation to zero.

Event Covid and rigging the market are absolutely one and the same: identical financial interests, institutional investors; same agenda of money printing and asset and power grabs leading towards monetary reset; same mass psychology.

The plandemic could not happen without the crazy market – that’s how TPTB are cashing out. How do you think they are paying for people to stay at home, monetising their drug market maneuverings via pharma stocks, speculating with all that free bailout and helicopter money — where do the interests of the politicians and big pharma meet if not in the stock market? Loosing the financial spigot at a time of scamdemic is exactly why the markets gone doolally

When the market collapses TPTB will scoop up assets at rock bottom prices. Prior to The Great Reset they will have turned speculative winnings into hard assets. The greater fools will be left holding their paper profits. The market is the mechanism.

That is the the purpose of the rally: pump and dump. All big market booms and busts are orchestrated.

We are in a train with no brakes hurtling towards God knows what and you want to discuss the scenery ?

Maybe your country is “hurtling towards God knows what”, but most cuntries aren’t, especially outside of the Anglosphere. But you probably wouldn’t know or see that because of the media bubble you exist in?

As MoneyC and others have said, all is interconnected. And as far as I can see, all present roads lead to COVID. I am disgusted by supposedly dissident sites that hardly even mention the virus thing as if to play the role of the wretched mainstream media with its bread and circuses – with of course scary updates to keep you off balance.

The only “dissident” site to mention COVID is the wretched WSW who wank over the fear porn. Thank God OffG is permitting us to talk about it honestly.

Separating covid and the financial markets is almost as hard as separating viruses and exosomes from each other.

I have to ask. Did anyone really care about this year long scare fest? Did anyone really believe it? Did anyone religiously follow the anally fixated micro-pedantic guidelines? Or did everyone just go along till nobody was watching and pull the mask down to their chin, breathe and whack their hands around the surroundings as of yore?

Did everyone adopt the appropriate deferential mournfulness when the unintentionally hilarious newsreader mouthed the horror, only to smirk inwardly at the amateurish melodrama? Did everyone diligently note down the rules and remember to gasp in terror only to run away as soon as they could to guffaw at the tenth rate disaster movie script?

Please tell me it was so!

Safe from…. Islamic terrorists, Russians, Chinese spies, nerve gas attacks, right wing terrorists, communists, Iranians, The Virus {several different types}, Trumpists, Sandernistas, Jeremy Corbyn, Bob Dylan’s ghost, independent news sites, racists {white ones}, sexists, and aliens {probably several different varieties but We’re not sure because We don’t have the descriptions, costumes, respective alliances, and technologies worked out but coming to a theater near YOU soon.}.

There Annie. That should about cover it…. for now. You can come inside.

Yes I’ve seen the “traffic light” system in supermarkets. I’d find it a lot more fun if they set up road systems inside the stores like little roundabouts and one-way avenues and parking spaces etc. Perhaps little petrol pumps with lemonade coming through the tubes?

Is it possible to never enter that shop again, after complaining to the manager/owner? Every little helps.

I hope you’re right.
But it still looks to me as if the managers/owners find solace and strength in numbers.

Yes, indeed, like everything else. The markets are rigged on all levels. As an ex small punter, good fun trading though as long as you accept its crooked from the outset, or learn very quickly. It’s fascinating reading financial bulletin boards – you can see why so many small investors/traders lose so much money.

Agreed. It’s a game, and as such it can be fun and thrilling. We just have to make sure we only invest a “burn” sum which we are ready to kiss goodbye. Never, ever gamble with your rent money or upcoming mortgage payments.

Yes, back in 2008 we were actually allowed to say that the market’s invisible hand was invisible because it wasn’t there; and that economics was a crock – all vodoo and no science. That lasted about 15 minutes before the “orthodoxy” prevailed once again.

Today I get the impression that the only “jobs” and “investments” out there are in diversity, ESG, green this and that, bla bla bla… And to all a good night!

We now recognize the scum, but we’re afraid they’ll call the police if we do anything. We don’t want to sit in jail and await trial, because that would be uncomfortable.
And in any case the law seems to be firmly on the side of the criminals these days.

I no longer think delving into arcane political motivations is a helpful use of our time.
It’s simply a question of bad people having got out of control, and whether we intend to continue putting up with it.

Well I was really talking about us here at OffG, rather than the average Brit or American, who has been thoughtless and unaware for generations.

I still feel strongly that a major problem with us all today is that we are afraid of the consequences of standing up to corporate bullying, and corporate bullying has consequently been trying over recent decades to push the limits of what it can get away with.

What it can get away with now appears to be unlimited. The takeover is complete.

I wouldn’t call my open letter to the manager of The Big Carrot here in Toronto a pushback on the scale of Rob Billot’s effort in Dark Waters, but it was something. You can read my open letter to the Big Carrot’s manager here. The guy who gave me her card didn’t say boo to me. Was it a diversion? My email to her, on the card he gave me, was returned. The address is unreachable. I sent a link to my letter to another email address on the BC website. Who knows? There’s not much more that can do about it right now. (I finally made up some dynamite posters and just as I was going to go out last night, the last day of my holiday, I ran out of staples. I did finally get quite a few put up however. A friend is right now hunting around his place for his staple gun for me…)
