There’s some alarming buzz about imminent banking failures and a stock market crash. Thing may get so bad that 99.9% of us will accept CBDC.
State of Controldebunkproductions.com
The “pandemic” may be over, but the agenda behind the unleashing of one or more deadly poisons and diseases and an even deadlier “cure” is not. The Going Direct Reset is moving forward, and if the populations of Western countries do not wake up, the final part of the central control grid may snap into place—the rollout of digital identities and central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).
“Tracked, traced, and databased….” Behind the QR codes and green passes that governments, businesses, and even churches introduced during the “pandemic”—requiring them as proof of health or vaccination status—an even vaster infrastructure is being built. Once fully implemented, this “digital gateway” will determine your identity, career, currency, liberty, and personal sovereignty.
Pitched to the public as convenient and safe, the machinery of a globally applicable digital ID and its data flows and data farming amounts to a lucrative “economics of total central control” working for Mr. Global alone. The promised benefits of having all our personal identification, login, and digital interactions in one “digital wallet” may soon transform into a terrifying captivity under the rule of unelected central bankers.
State of Control is a timely and factual documentary with skillful cinematography, directed and researched by Benjamin Jonas van den Brink and produced by Max von Kreyfelt of Debunk Productions. It provides a highly convincing and logical presentation of evidence and developments that has the power to reach both the skeptical and the credulous.
Nothing is more important for our future than to stop and break the control grid. State of Control is immensely helpful in this endeavor—a film to show to friends and family and to watch yourself to lift the fog and understand what is at stake and what must be done.
-Catherine Austin Fitts’ Solari Report
I was disappointed in this keynote when JC sent it out a couple days ago – he was rolling over the same tired barter & community “solutions”. If he’s such an anarchist why isn’t he addressing the real non-compliance routes – not complying with bank instruments designed to enslave you into decades of debt and credit scoring OR the paying of ‘protection’ to a bunch of criminals who have set themselves up as ‘kings’?
There is no way out of this as long as the majority think the State is taking care of their interests any more than the mafia are. Stop fucking financing the BS!
And this so called CBDC opt-out “summit’ is run by a dude who can’t even upload a video to the internet but wants us to pay him for a course on the new tech. LMFAO.
His ‘expert’ in the day 2 interview addressed every concern from the chat with derision: The Internet wont go down because then their CBDCs wont operate (duh tone of voice) – no thought outside the box that perhaps the internet will go down then come back up but not for dissidents (or holders of now-illegal shit tokens).
Fight Amnesia: Right wing outrage over devil night at the Feb. 5 “Unholy” Grammy Awards sponsored by Pfizer pharma is predictable. Clueless “Conservatives” don’t recognize cynical capitalist marketing when they see it.
Mr.Ozz was a sellout the day he met his wife and her family. The Pfizers as I am. sure they were known back then in the so called pop music industry. It’s all the same.
I suggest we give a listen to real artists and performers like Super Max. Never mind the useless trash we are told to behold ourselves to.
Those who can find any substance whatsoever in crypto or digital currency surpass mine and perhaps many others’ grasp. Seldom have I suffered such vacuous and meaningless lectures as those featured on James Corbett’s [ well intentioned ] videos on the topic, James’s endorsement consigning me to longer suffering ( others I would ditch sooner ).
Trust in such currencies belongs to either the brilliant or stupid, your choice.
People have been enticed into the cities, especially after ww2, the US for example.
Strategically this favors the central planners of the 4IR with their economic CBDC & the social/governance token control grid.
THIS FROM OVO……. Bring your account back on track by increasing your Direct Debit
We recently ran a Direct Debit check-in on your account to make sure your payments match your energy use and costs.
To get your balance back on track, we need to increase your payments.
If you don’t take any action We’ll automatically adjust your monthly payment, giving you at least 10 working days notice before your payment.
I suppose a few million people are now facing this type of fraud through their energy bills. Over my dead body will they access my bank account. This scam will make the Covid rip off look like chicken feed.
You want fraud: how about this. Many years ago banks (at least in Maryland USA) decided that if you had a savings account (people actually used to be able to save money) – AND if your savings account had had NO activity in x-amount of years – the bank could and would take whatever you had in your savings account.
That’s universally old even I know that. Numbers are there in your account it’s just put into a dormant mode. For example if your overseas homeland or travelling funds are a fluid currency, they aren’t yours you just get to use them.
First step is not voting. If anyone on this site still votes for any political party, anywhere, then you are contributing to and supporting a corrupted system. A system built to own you.
Withdraw your consent. When a critical mass of non-voting people has been reached, the ball will be firmly in their court and may lead to negotiation of acceptable changes to the system. Of course, your government may instead choose to severely oppress you, but at least it will be game on at that point, instead of this current insanity of waiting for them to tell us what shit we are eating next.
Do not vote for them.
That’s right. Voting is consenting. Howver, not voting doesn’t have any effect either. The regime will vote for you (they already do).
USA votes domestic materialistic Nationally militarist, it’s Health Systems are free market internal economy.
You really have to scratch much deeper under the surface than that.
The first step is realizing that the world as we’ve known it is fucked up beyond repair, or perhaps that the shiny shell that has been sold to people hides a huge pile of rotting manure.
The choices are as follows:
a) Waking people up or waiting until they wake up and then trying to rid the basic pre-2020 societal structure of the usurpers, kinda giving it a new lease on life.
b) Refusing to comply through passive resistance and waiting until the system implodes, collapses, dies by attrition. In the meantime, hopefully, formulating an alternative vision and when the regime comes close to crashing down, staging a revolution and putting whatever the vision is (hopefully something better) into practice.
c) Getting pissed, smashing the fuck out of everything in sight, including the faces of the most prominent perpetrators, and seeing what happens the day after.
From where I’m standing, b) is probably the best choice, except that you’ll miss the fun of smashing in the faces of the most prominent perpetrators as per c). On second thought, that feature could be probably incorporated under b) as well.
Not voting alone will accomplish complete shit, I’m afraid.
The human mindset must change before any other change actually accomplishes anything. That mindset is, of course, mindlessness.
Perfect example: child proof caps on pill bottles. They invent these insane caps which probably ONLY children would be capable of figuring out and disengaging. And everybody is so so very happy that their little darlings are protected. Then, they turn those darlings over to the medical establishment to be jabbed half to death – infants in the US receive 23 vaccines by their first birthday.
So long as insanity passes for normalcy, don’t bother doing anything because it won’t make any difference.
Yes, this ideology of preemptive protectionism, where people think and go to insane lengths to protect themselves, and their kids, from all imaginable harm, most of which is manufactured by shitheads for the purposes of fucking people over, gotta go.
As far as doing anything, my current position is as follows:
My ex-wife was an impulsive person and from time to time, actually quite often, she’d go off, completely ballistic. While she was in that state, there was zero point doing anything, least of all arguing. Unfortunately, I my fuse is about as short as hers, and I was rarely capable of not following her into orbit so to speak. But I did learn my lesson, man! Right now, the random human is a state where it’s pretty much useless to try to convince them of anything. I’m waiting for them to come out of it.
I think fighting for a real democracy is the only path left – small hope, but better than no hope – Democracy Study Guide – https://www.rudemacedon.ca/DSG/0000-summary.html
Personally, I reject the concept of democracy. I have neither any need to elect somebody to act on my behalf, nor do I wish to be elected to take care of somebody else’s shit. More importantly, I vehemently reject the notion the people elected to take care of shit “govern”, that is stand above others and tell them what to do.
Fuck of all of that! Nobody should stand under anyone else.
I’m in favor of a horizontal arrangement in which people interact with others on a contractual, voluntary, and mutually beneficial basis – anarchy.
Is that achievable? Or are people such assholes that they can’t keep from fucking with others? Not sure. A friend of mine recently told me that when monkeys have an alpha male overseeing them, they’re calmer. Are humans like that too? Inherently too stupid to live peacefully side by side one another, needing a governor of some kind to obey?
I guess that’s the question.
However, my opinion is that people can well live without being subject to one cocksucker on top the hierarchy. They just need to realize it. I hope that that’s where judicious freedom-loving people will focus their efforts in the future.
Agree 100%. This is the only sane method of social interaction. It’s basic anarchy – real anarchy as opposed to the bomb throwing kind.
I’ll “vote” for item c) because there really hasn’t been a choice for over two centuries.
70% of the populace already fails to vote. Then they wonder why their “democracy” has failed…
How Private Interests and the Banking Dynasties Control Washington

How Private Interests and the Banking Dynasties Control Washington – Global ResearchGlobal Research – Centre for Research on Globalization
After reading other comments on this thread, I should have included the fact that I believe all public “systems” are fascist by design. The framers of the US Constitution knew this and attempted to at least limit the powers of government via 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 10th Amendments. All of which ceded “veto” power back to the States and civilian public. Thomas Jefferson understood public “veto” power quite well. >
Quoted From: Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, November 13, 1787
“God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive.
If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.
And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”
– Thomas Jefferson –
(April 13, 1743 – July 4, 1826)
I was thinking about how to reconcile the inherent problem of a Hayekesque society of free individuals living in a spontaneous order with the fact that some assholes among us are intent on usurping power for themselves and subjugating others. The concept of collectivism – as per any of the collectivist ideologies, like socialism or communism – basically got it right by saying that people have to join forces to achieve equal power, whether it’s on the market or the battlefield. The trick is that as soon as the prick who tries to disrupt the spontaneous order is dispatched, society must return to the free, spontaneously functioning state. In other words, people must refrain from building permanent collectivist structures because they only make it easier for the aforementioned motherfuckers to accomplish their dirty deed – all they have to do is sneak into a position that controls the collective, whether it’s government, trade union, or any other organization.
I think that this guy Jefferson was saying pretty much the same thing.
Right on Kurt. The original US Constitution was written as a “living” document, with public debate controlling legislative addendum.
The legislative and executive branches of government have been methodically corrupted by financial interests since about 1812. America (as envisioned by Thomas Jefferson) actually lost the war of 1812 to banking cartels and Black Nobility of European lineage. I digress…
Re the replies to this comment:
The response to a suggestion of not voting is almost always similar, push-back or outright resistance. It appears to me that this broad conditioning to the tradition of voting is very difficult to shake, even for people who apparently oppose the current system.
It’s a lack of imagination to believe that if the vast majority of people didn’t vote then things would just somehow stay the same. To choose to vote while also suggesting alternatives that a majority of people are definitely not going to do, such as violence or continual protest, is just daft. It’s piss-easy not to vote, It’s something that can easily snowball and that can be put into effect right now by anyone who cares to choose.
Or, continue to vote and moan about the corrupted system all you like. You won’t change a thing, you’ll wait too long and if people aren’t willing to even eschew voting they certainly won’t be willing to die on some revolutionary frontline.
It is interesting to see the push-back against suggestions to withdraw consent from a system that is ridiculed and complained about on a daily basis and one that causes so much immiseration and death.
You nailed it Shola, many not ready to give up on voting, nor is the site ready to stop selling punch left politics, although all blogs like this- pretend to not endorse politics and half hint that politics and voting doesn’t matter. They sell it hard to the readers, This is a kind of confusion tactic that leads to people still believing in a system as long as a certain party (Usual Conservative’s are in power as there sold are the lesser of 2 evils) the not so wise, will continue being told, what to think by blogs selling this type of message.
The moaning is apart of the selling of the voting n politics ritual.
Here’s a curious thing – the Fraud turns on Davos:
The only criticisms they’ve allowed before has been that Davos hasn’t gone far enough on the green agenda. Otherwise they’ve praised them as bold visionaries merely trying to help save the planet and only crazy conspiracy theorists could possibly disagree with their plans.. Mostly they just ignore them.
It’s only one article but it is quite a shift. Is Davos finally busted and about to return to a minor gathering of C-list celebrities? The same plans need a different front? They are so toxic they are bound to poison everything they touch. This doesn’t mean the plans will be changed of course – they’ve stuck to them for over a century from House to Wells to Birkenhead – and will undoubtedly pop up again re-packaged and with a new salesman (or more probably -woman). A return to the Bilderberg shadows perhaps….
The story does fit in with the broader agenda in a way – they’ve been running incessant stories about how dreadful work is Now your boss wants “brain transparency”! Wouldn’t sitting in your pod and venturing into the Metaverse while living off UBI be so much better?
Talking of “saving the planet”, here’s some more insanity:
Deflecting the sun’s rays away from earth – what could possibly go wrong?…. (Luckily this is so nuts it can’t possibly work and looks more like a giant boondoggle)
Curious.? not really, who hasn’t in all the media factions done the switch of late.
Here is your solution to get everybody on board and blow the shit off the face of the earth …
We all keep saying “money is the root of all evil” yet we still can’t seem to manage to live without it. Whatever happened to mutual aid and cooperation? It wasn’t survival of the fittest that got us where we are. The human race has survived without money but it’ll be the end of us if we keep this up. No amount of money will save us. Money is obscene. Like Dylan said, “Money doesn’t talk, it swears”.
The sort of muddle-headed thinking that was harmless before but now is dangerous because it’s been weaponised.
It isn’t money that’s the root of all evil, it’s love of money. Avarice is one of the seven deadly sins. It’s a Christian idea and I’m sure you’re a Christian and not just quoting it when it suits. Money is just a universal system of value and there’s nothing wrong with that in itself – the problem was when the banking class detached money from items of real value and currencies started to be debauched.
The WEF/FEW are planning a world without money as we’ve known it with social or carbon credits taking its place. Apparently that will solve all our problems and be heaven on earth rather than a dystopian nightmare perched somewhere between ‘1984’ and ‘Brave New World’. You’ll be getting plenty of “mutual aid and cooperation” when required to share your clothes (including underwear) with everyone in your 15-minute zone of the circular economy. This is real – it’s in one of their white papers. Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it.
Only a thief would put value on anything and you seem to think there is nothing wrong with it. You should be so careful not to be led into temptation.
It is ‘love of money is the root of all evil’ – not money itself.
No, it isn’t “love of money”: it’s money itself that is the root of all evil. Whether you love or hate money, once it becomes entrenched in a society, you have no real choice but to use it.
Furthermore (Ayn Rand notwithstanding), money can only be used for evil. The goods we all buy with our filthy lucre are largely created with near slave labor. Because, well, if they were paid what their work is worth, there’d be nothing left over for anything else.
Money like guns or many things is a tool of the beholder the intent subjective, but the phrase itself has biblical roots for good reasons.
For the love of money is the root of all of evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows – 1 Timothy 6:10
Guns is another example of the dynamic. It is impossible to make a gun for anything but destruction – whether it’s destruction of an animal for food or of another human for sport (i.e., war).
Hello JoeC: Think of money as a social lubricant. This takes the mystique out of it…
money is fine, it’s just a tool, a useful tool, pretty much a necessary tool – when controlled by honest people in an honest community. But when evil people with evil intentions manage to control a powerful tool like money, evil manifests throughout their world. We need to create a true democracy, where honesty rather than corruption is the basic value – then the money will be fine. More thoughts on it all here – Democracy Study Guide – https://www.rudemacedon.ca/DSG/0000-summary.html . Nobody is going to give you a better society – if you want it, you help make it happen.
Barter, comrades, barter!
fine in a small local market, completely useless internationally
This is for when it gets right down to mere survival.
International commerce via Amazon will no longer be our top priority.
Small local markets are exactly what we want. The ‘we’ being local people who have not been jabbed, are awake, and who are, right now, building an alternative system.
Life after cheap fossil fuels will be quite different, “internationally” will be a distant thing before long …
I’ve been calling for alternate currencies for 3 years– especially at the State level: Florida or Texas or a combination of a few States might very well be willing to act together– but only after we’ve broken down the novelty of the idea by talking it up everywhere. James of course can’t suggest this cuz he’s an anarchist.
Personally I think our potential takeover is a 3-legged stool: We must get some big sentiment among police and segments of the military & we have to do MORE about the media. And our plan MUST be a takeover; as their control becomes greater they’re not going to allow us to survive & function on the fringes; that’s a fantasy.
The success we’ve got so far is due entirely to our control of segments of the (internet) media. Media, Military & Money: We’ve got to have some part of all of these. So long as we leave the criminals in complete control of EITHER military or money they can cancel/checkmate whatever we do. We have to take over & take them down; are you crazy; they’ve killed & sterilized how many in the past two years?
Now, back to reality.
You certainly have much, much greater chance of surviving on the fringes, under the radar, possibly in the hills if you can find some to run away to, than trying to take over the media, the military, and money.
Like, you feel that you have such a huge popular support that any of that could be accomplished? Stop hallucinating and get real. We weren’t even successful in convincing the absolute vast majority of people not to put diaper-like coverings on their stupid faces and get injected with some shit at the nearest mall or train station.
A global revolution ain’t gonna happen anytime soon. Not least because revolutions don’t happen to resist something but to usher in something new. You don’t even have that something new.
The US would have to break up first, since Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution reserves the right to coin money to the US Congress.
The bankster owned Federal Reserve has a monopoly on the creation of money in the US.
I’m not crazy about this man. He uses too many words to say too little. Most of his solutions are laughably naive. But occasionally, he does have a point.
In this latest waterfall of verbiage, he mentions the important fact that you’ll get nowhere if you don’t have a like-minded community. In this case, a community resolved to opt out of official money and use something else. So, focus must concentrate on building the community and not on CBDCs. Or any of the other usual NWO suspects.
Well, good luck. How many people do you know who would be willing to trade on a barter basis or use some alternative means of payment? Like nobody? How many sources of, say, food do you know that would sell you stuff this way? Like none? In my neck of the woods, it’s fairly easy to buy food from small local farmers under the table and some barter does take place, but the idea that the woman I buy eggs and cheese from will accept bitcoins is out of this world. She’s got no fucking clue that there is such thing as bitcoin.
Most people can’t wait to have their lives more digitized. They now rely on their effing phones to tell them when to get up because they’ve been sitting too long, when to take a leak, how happy they are, you name it. Even among the relatively small number of people I know who are with it and more or less understand the turmoil in the world, there is nobody willing to give up digital shit or official money.
It’s the same with everything else. I don’t know whether Desmet got it 100% right with mass formation and mechanistic thinking, but he certainly has a point – people’s heads are thoroughly fucked up, subject to thinking patterns that have been formed over centuries and won’t be easy to change, if that’s ever even possible.
The bottom line is that CBDCs and more digitization are a sad unavoidable reality. Rather than musing over solutions that are in the realm of the phantasmagorical, think of ways how you can fuck with the system, fly under the radar. Get by until, hopefully, some merciful event, such as a fairly large fucking asteroid hitting this planet or a nice solar eruption, puts an end to this digital madness and throws humankind back to stone age. Then, it will be necessary to promptly chop off the head of every motherfucker who tries to steer people toward the path of technological development again, and we’ll live happily in our caves ever after.
I am with you all the way Kurt – the 99% don’t have clue what’s going on and will go with flow as always for a easy life regardless of the restrictions. It’s happening in China already and they have a propensity to subservience anyway. One of my readers in China sent me this some time ago which really paints the digital control future in merely 4 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXyzpMDtpSE
Our small local community deep in rural SW England is already prepared to go off-grid which I have been writing about for years: https://austrianpeter.substack.com/p/the-financial-jigsaw-part-2-localisation?s=w
The UK is heading towards a low energy future. The current govt and its backers is so keen to obey the green agenda that soon, a minority of people in the UK will have electrical power only when the wind is blowing!
You can forget CBDC when you understand the layers of digital vultures behind this agenda, and the enormous amounts of energy a digital society will need – energy which will not be available or only available in an irregular and unpredictable way.
No energy – no CBDC – no internet – no ‘devices’. Get it?
Good article thanks May, and I hope you are right. In any event our group continues to prepare for a low-energy, low-tech life because it’s good for us all round, so we do ‘get it’.
Bitcoin is not a digital currency. It never was and never will be. It’s a digital asset.
You’re about as digitized upstairs as the rest that you claim to yak about. No doubt the masses are perplexed but my farmers will take bitcoin and so will many of my associates.
Perhaps you really should look deeper.
Well, I am going to be 70 years old this year. I never thought I would make 69, but did several times. I have never done any of this war shit, and she (my wife) is still here – upstairs in bed and it is fcking cold…I will be up soon for her to warm me…but I am feeling a bit pissed off
No 1 – The Entire Fcking World has gone mad Including All The British Government (except 1) and All The Civil Service – (hoping to get a lift to the pub tomorrow – with wife – and I have asked his wannabbe girlfriend to come too – just text him)
Whilst it seems most of the propaganda works on most people, and I am completely disgusted with the nazis in control of the nazis killing extremely large numbers of people in The UKraine….
Stop pretending These People in Control have got your best interest at heart.
They Haven’t. They are Genocidal Lunatics – trying to kill you too.
“Active participants in the black economy”
We used to go down the pub a lot. She still does it several times a week. Even I still occasionally get out. Hoping to see a young band (we know) on Friday…
We are Socialists. We talk to people in the pub – mainly musicians, even actors – the vast majority are also skilled Craftsman – Working Class – know how to do a job…
Do not assume you are going to get the best rates – unless you are extremely flexible – with regards when they turn up. Just agree a fair a price, and say come round, when you haven’t got another job on.
I always agreed and paid cash, and will continue to do so where possible. My wife almost always gets the intro..
The best recruiting place re people you trust to do a good job, is down the pub – or even better your own family.
Agreed 100% Tony. We live deep in rural SW England and our local is the best place for our small community to socialise and exchange/trade in all manner of services, helping and supporting each other. This is the hub of how we will move towards a self-supporting, local economy as Britain continues down the road to oblivion.
This is why our despicable politicians are trying to destroy the pubs because they know pubs are centres of resistance and rebellion. I wrote about it last year, and at the end is a reminder of how black markets always arise during periods of excessive austerity: https://austrianpeter.substack.com/p/climate-fraud-exposed-rip-truth-is
I’m in the SW.Would like a pint with you.Which pub do you drink in?
That would be lovely – always good to meet a fellow traveller. We are in Bruton, Somerset – the Sun Inn in the High Street is our social club!
Fair play to you! I’m in Bristol so not quite staggering distance as any local should be but I’ll keep you in mind!
Looking forward to your rural summer ramble, and the beer is only £4/pint 🙂
Just one good reason to patronise your local pub as they are under attack too, and have been for some time.
Great job by Sunak to try to discredit Zelensky before his own people.
I think they should give each other a nice big smooch. Maybe a hand job on the plane…
How do you know they didn’t?
The financial endgame appears to be some type of false flag event (EMP/cyberattack) to blame financial collapse on. And then the banks will fail and do a bail-in i.e. seize our assets. Then the Powers That Be will roll out UBI/CBDC as the solution along with digital ID.
Here’s a good Greg Reese video about the Chinese balloon possibly being the start of a false flag:
Good scenario CK – as you say, or something along these lines: https://austrianpeter.substack.com/p/the-financial-jigsaw-part-2-food?utm_source=post-email-title&publication_id=762792&post_id=82277588&isFreemail=false&utm_medium=email
Yes. An EMP financial grid collapse would do the trick. It’s even been trial ballooned…

I like James a lot, he’s done a lot of good work in the past, but opting out of this or that is not going to solve anything, they’ll just keep pushing and pushing until there’s no place left to opt out in – at which time there will be nothing left to save. The only way to save ourselves is for ‘we the people’ to get off our assess and stop complaining and start doing something about it, as in openly fighting for a true democracy and getting rid of those who have declared themselves our Masters. thoughts on moving in that direction here – Democracy Study Guide – https://www.rudemacedon.ca/DSG/0000-summary.html
Which, sadly, probably isn’t going to happen either.
Here’s a chart of how funny money “investments” have scaled since 1960: >
M1 (M1SL) | FRED | St. Louis Fed (stlouisfed.org)
Due to the public’s ignorance of how their financial investments were leveraged at well over 10 to 1 valuations for DECADES, no opt out will be made available at any point in the future. You are 100% owned. >
Read the text below the chart. Financial vehicles such as the International Monetary Fund and the Swiss UBS Group AG will control all financial transactions world wide.
The Federal Reserve has been in crash mode since before 2001. No one paid attention as the entire Manhattan financial district was bombed into dust…
James Corbett is a jesuit catholic. Haven’t we suffered enough through the centuries from these sneaky mass murderers masquerading as holy men? I mean really. Isn’t it about time to finally leave the dark ages, cause we never left.
What the christian religion does not know about accruement of wealth can be written on the head of the proverbial pin. Also they can advise on genocide, rape, torture, slavery, child abuse, theft, coercion, control, war mongering etc etc. Pray (!) tell me where was the church on the covid bollocks, oh yes, opening up cathedrals to take the poison but not to worship. The mind just boggles at what religions have done. (W)holy evil. .You do not need a religion to believe in a creator(s).
CBDC … Bitcoin, Etherium, etc.etc. ALL the ‘coded’ money in the world is still as susceptible as any power-source. Turn off the power-source and what do you have … an empty wallet, be it concrete or electronic.
ALL and ANY CBDC will only be as good or ‘secure’ as the people in control of the power-source. Therefore, all the smart encryption in the world is rendered … worthless.
SO, at the end of the day, not much changes, i.e.
Power-source = BIS/DS
Power-source = Electrical power grids (owned and controlled by BIS/DS)
All it takes is for people to accept in-trade paper (money is a promissory note on a media [paper, digital virtual image] <=a debtors promise to pay)! National currency is a promissory note guaranteed by a nation state with value in trade established by reference either locally by reference to the bargained value of the transaction or by reference to trading value of some standard (say gold or some other reference point ) .
For example, The maker of this note, promises to pay whomever presents this note to maker on date-certain this note for payment 50 medium sized fresh white chicken eggs in good and marketable condition. The seller (now holder of the note) on day 2 sells (trades) the promissory note to a car repair shop for repair cost to her car, the car shop trades the note (promise to pay) to a grocery store in exchange for foods the shop owner wants [buys] off the grocer's shelf. The grocer presents the note to its maker on date-certain. If a guarantor, private insurance company or wealthy banker guarantees the payment, the promise to pay in the note is guaranteed by XYZabc insurance company or private bank, the interest on the note would be set by the insurance company fee for the guarantee and it would paid directly to the insurance company in advance of, or simultaneously with, issuing the note . The interest for the insurance would be based on the credit of the maker of the note.
what is needed is a guarantor capable to guarantee payment on notes and a law that makes the acceptance of the note mandatory as legal tender on all sellers and another law to make fraud in the note or counterfeiting note criminal offenses, a policeman to police the integrity of the system and a court to make note payer's pay .
Basically a government is the police, court, and law maker that makes the note have a standard redeemable value (50 medium sized fresh white chicken eggs in good and marketable condition=50 individual notes), to be used in place of the maker's note. Problem is if the government guarantees the standard unit denominated note ($32 dollars = 1 oz of gold), labor must earn enough of the standard notes from some employer in order to be able to buy standard priced food and and standard priced housing, etc..
Digital coins were investments not currency. they had no reference to a standard whose value in trade was standardized, no police, no court or no law to make the seller accept them or to guarantee payment to the seller or to make the digital currency hold a globally determinable unit standard value. 32 digital base unit coins were not redeemable for 1 oz of gold, no seller was obligated to accept the digital base as a standard value, and no cop would arrest counterfeiters, no court would enforce the debt and no bank would guarantee payment. etc. .
Its not that the digital coin is any different than other currencies, its that without the support of a entire support system, there is no standardization, no guarantees of payment, value, and no way to know the purchasing power of a million digital coins in your safe. But you were free of debt slavery, you did not have to work to get the digital coins.
to make a digital currency work, it will be necessary to have a single global digital currency system, globally enforced without regard to place of use and independent of national origin. This is what the WEF is seeking to accomplish, and they want their corporations[banks and stock companies] to be in charge of the digital coin system (replace the governments with corporations) that standardizes and enforces the value and integrity of the digital coin. Of course each nation will resent having to use a system of trade that makes everyone in the world equal, so there is much competition between nations to promote their coinage (currency) into the global standard.. Until the world adopts and polices just one currency system there will be wars over whose currency is to be used, until energy is made a universally owned global resource there will be wars over who owns the energy, and so on. Oneness is needed, but oneness without nation state greed is needed.
Globalism is the answer? Ha ha.
Excellent point hotrod31, Why hasn’t Mr solution watch mentioned that part….
fertility: Hmmm! It makes one wonder, doesn’t it. Vested-interest, perhaps?
Bear in mind that the pretend Fed Reserve and the money printers have not spared anybody who has come between them and the money-trough, so far. They have even gone so far as to LOOT the gold and resources of just about every country on earth … Nobody seems to want to discuss what has happened to the looted gold and US currencies of IRAQ and LIBYA, amongst others. So WHO exactly is ‘priming-and-pumping’ the idea of a CBDC. Who stands to gain most, Dear Watson?
You’re right hotrod31. No power = no digital anything. Funny thing is that the WEF”s fanatical green agenda is making electrical energy so expensive and so scarce that they are killing their own golden goose!
And without power, even with intermittent power, you can also forget their dream of global digital I.D’s or a digital currency.
So far, there is no satisfactory alternative energy source which can even begin to supply the vast amount of electricity needed by digital what-nots.
The digital industry is in its infancy. Many errors are being made and many more will be made. Much of the initial data input is from humans. So even more errors. Their fantasy digital control world has a long, long, long way to go.
The real digits are the ones attached to our hands.
A big Carrington level solar flare has the capacity to wipe out the grids.
The presto-chango from cash to digital won’t keep the inevitable from happening. A good analogy would be changing the name of death to something like dearth – still puts you six foot under no matter what you call it.
What we whimsically call “civilization” is on the way to the dung heap. And no magician’s trick can save it. Humanity has overplayed its hand, spending funny money like a drunken sailor – with nothing to back it up. And “nothing” includes gold, silver, platinum reserves – the value of which is also in name only.
Gold, diamonds, etc. are only valuable because we say so. Maybe we’ll continue saying so right up until we try to turn, not lead to gold, but gold to food.
Or we could barter. “Dude, I’ll give you a bar of gold for that there ‘tater.” And dude replies “Go fuck yourself!”
“Only when the last tree has died, the last river been poisoned, and the last fish been caught, will we realize we cannot eat money.”

Here’s a bloke who walks the talk:
Lovely, stirring & accurate prose, Johnny. But I notice he likes the term “anarchism.” An opposing plan and platform for a good govt can overcome the criminal enterprise we have now. Anarchism CAN’T. It’s not coincidental that the criminals have done their best to atomize us. It’s coming TOGETHER in a just govt that WE organize that will empower us.
All those people whom you want to fight back won’t do it as isolated individuals. Not enough will do it as small, obviously fragile & powerless communities. Civilization is built on strong govts that empower our wishes, and that includes our military. We’ve no time for the fantasy of anarchy.
Civilization is built on strong governments that empower our wishes, which includes the military? Now I’m sorry, but that right there is fantasy. While it may seem at times that our military could be brought around to our side and against a corrupt government, just how exactly would that work? An entity set up from day one for wars of conquest for resources isn’t something we can really use to free us from government overreach, IMHO. And I say this as someone who did do military service, albeit a short stint and in a peace time military between a couple of those wars.
I tend to think strong governments, with military “support,” are what has brought us to where we are today. I agree those governments have been wholly corrupted by the banks and corps, but how exactly are we to free ourselves from that, even IF we were to organize the millions it would take to do it? I don’t know much about anarchy in reality, and it probably isn’t really what it sounds like to most of us who’ve been led to believe, for FAR TOO LONG, that government done right can be a force for good. History shows that most governments quickly become about power, corruption and control, not about empowering the people to govern themselves.
Do we have time for the fantasy of a true democracy by the people, one without wars of conquest dressed up as wars for democracy? I’m not so sure we do. It may come to anarchy, anarchy in small groups attempting to govern themselves. Will that work out as it is intended? Dubious, at best. It would have to overcome what appears to be humanity’s natural tendency to seek power and control over others. If history is any guide, the best intentions can be quickly discarded by any subset given control over the whole.
Well stated Lizzy.
Results from a recent survey on ‘Public trust in the media and government in Australia’ looks promising:
Perhaps SOME of the Sheeple are waking or becoming suspicious at least.
People say they distrust the media (nobody wants to appear gullible) – but when they said colds/flu are now the plague they believed it. This distrust is quite shallow outside of the USA.
The good news is their ops have had to get so hysterical that the ridiculousness is becoming increasingly obvious.
Don’t put the cart (currency) before the horse (community), as James says. Without a viable means of resistance, ideas of alternatives are dead. Unfortunately, it seems a community of resistance remains more remote than ever, human relations reduced to social isolation in digital cages while the living dead walk about in public. There’s just no horse power left, it seems, nor horse sense.
Did he say that? lol! It’s nosebag feeds the cart in a British language. You’ll notice it’s meaning is Not telling another person anything they don’t all ready know doing.
Its not a community of resistance that is needed, but something so overwhelming in practical application and surety of circumstance that no one in any community objects to, that everyone understands, and that works to no one’s advantage or disadvantage that is needed.
The community of resistance needs to develop a system so good so practical that no one refuses to use it, including the nation state system itself. The failure does not lye in failure to resist, the failure lay in the failure of the resistance to provide the world with a globally recognized standard unit of value so solid, so reproducible and so well supported that no one argues with it for any reason.
I believe that the true failure of the resistance [and of the users on alt media in general] is that it [they] continue to complain about systems of coinage, instead of evaluating the true need, analyzing in detail the faults and benefits in the existing systems and developing from that information a better system capable to replace that which the community of resistance complains of. If there is a common fault with Alternative Media is that it does little to nothing to solve problems, The Bitch needs to transform herself into the Inventor.
The day modern moron slaves care about CBDC will never come… Just thing that for the herds of MMS CBDC is just like PCR!

Good Day for Zgreat Britain!
Here’s a non-photoshopped version:
Central Banks are not about to lose control over currency. At least not without a fight.
On one hand they have decimated FIAT currencies to worthless coin and paper and now with ever mounting sovereign debt, countries are looking at defaulting on debt not to mention the ever pressing concerns of the derivatives market and its unrelentingly complicated equations that few if non at all understand.
So what you have is the flight from the US dollar as a global backed security. Many countries have had enough of US and Western foreign policy to elicit their control of hegemony over the rest.
The perfect storm is mounting and currencies as we know them will fail.
You have a few options assuming you have money in the Bank.
Many are pay cheque to pay cheque, never mind money anywhere. It’s all credit.
People now own very little. A 30 year amortized mortgage means you don’t own your home, you don’t own a car, everything is essentially financed, even your daily living expenses through the ability to pay via credit.
So the idea of own nothing and be happy is starting to sound good to the poor youth of this world. Hell they own nothing already and they aren’t very happy are they?
But thats no option. So if you have cash it’s best you find a safe asset to weather the storm. Gold? Sure but it’s not easily transported and lest face it you don’t have true ownership unless you put them gold bars under your bed. The fact remains that if and when the government wants your gold, it’s not going to be too hard to cease it from you.
A global digital coin backed by not a central bank but perhaps by sovereign wealth in resources and precious metals , who knows even some non fiat currencies and hell why not even the green back to some degree.
That might work. Only issue is will they grant you true ownership of this coin?
Bitcoin has solved most of the issues associated with such digital assets. Ownership, deregulated platform and many other benefits.
If and when a global digital currency does reveal itself, I am confident that Bitcoin will be an asset class to such digital currencies.
This will mean that central banks will need to fail first. It’s the only way out of this mess.
So it’s war then
Look around and tell me what you see.
I see a battle Royal between the true EU, ( not the Von der Leyen gang) and Wall Street. BRICS et al and Western Hegemony.
Bitcoin vs regulated useless digital tokens.
Others see Ukraine, covid and balloons…..
I see a global takeover by transhumanist central bankers
War being materialistic the imposition possibilities rest on the democide repression severity of the previous generations.
Right so people here bash Royal Mint Sterling. And pathetically enjoy their own intricacy via online unrealism regarding currency. They live inside Propaganda, while comfortable in the belief the systems they inherited is an explactive right.
A broadspeakingly Centre of a behavioural pattern of Idealism.
Cash is king and always will be, use it or lose it. No to cashless society.
NO, you live in default enjoying the Currency you Invested IN., the moment you accepted a credit Card. Your Protectorate is The Bank…Central Bank.
its too late. Cash is now worthless. So on one side you best use it before you lose its net worth might be a better statement.
Cashless woke liberal business who think it’s cool to only take credit or debit…. fucking racists to the core as they never thought that someone out there has had their credit taking away and so can only buy a coffee with a few coins.
No to them these people don’t deserve to be served on, they are considered too poor to come in for a coffee, they are considered undesirable.
Why? Who the hell knows …. is management afraid of their woke bitches stealing the cash? Or is management afraid that the work bitch will get covid from all the germies on money apparently. It’s dirty don’t you know?
Perhaps it’s just too much to add it all up at the end of the day, you know those bitches cant add in their heads. Cant make change either.
So next time you’re in one of these fucking establishments you might want to turn around and take your business elsewhere.
Pilot Coffee for one – degenerates to the core.
Ask them if they take Bitcoin….. if you want to see the gaze of deer in headlights. Empty headed to the core.
And these are the imbeciles we want to save ? think again.
Exactly, well said. It really pisses me off seeing the tap and go morons in supermarkets etc, they have no idea what they are ushering in or even where that money has just gone.. The credit scores given by the same people that owe $3 trillion dollars always makes me laugh but people also fail to understand how this is pre-empting their digital control, the thick twats!
Ya I see them everywhere I go, tap & go morons that’s a good one 😂
The gap and toe morons.

CBCD’s have come about because gov’ts and the finance industry have fatally abused their own sovereign currencies. Those behind the CBCD’s now think they have all the answers. In reality they are merely changing their boots for some can football.
Get out of their systems anyway you can before your bank morphs your unsecured bank deposits into their rapidly falling bank stock. Get out of their systems before your currency is issued by Hogwarts.

Come on y’all… Bitcoin? Another vaporware currency, but this one claims to be “private”? Not a solution if i’ve ever seen one.
Major story released today by Seymour Hersh: How America Took Out The Nordstream Pipeline
Seymour Hersh, the one who also brought us the osama bin laden killing, right?
What if there was no osama bin laden (anymore around, what was it, 2011)
What if Nordstream is still there?
I know, I know, the story on Nordstream and obl and… what not must be true because… I saw it on tv
Best bet is: Osama died in late 2001/early 2002. Possibly of kidney disease, possibly helped out. Anyone buying the Abbottabad bs is living in cloud-cuckoo land. The US Navy Seal team involved knew the truth, which is why they had that helicopter ‘accident’ in Afghanistan.
I knew it! It was a bomb! That Sy, man, he’s always right on top of it.
How can i tell if this is not just one more intelligence service scam.. to find out who is circumventing their system..just as the FTX program turned out to be> no way would I sign up until much more is known about it.
That’s exactly the thing about all this:
The intelligent will notice the pattern gradually forming, and the pattern is perfectly recognizable after so many years of experience with it.
Those of us who are old enough will remember similar things happening during the Thatcher years way back. Coincidence after coincidence, but only those who could be bothered – because it mattered – noticed the pattern taking shape behind it all.
But just as the ‘proof’ required by the dull-witted would be incomprehensible to them even if we rammed it down their throats, we can respond to that requirement with a demand of our own: namely the well-known tenet: “Ignorance of the law is no excuse for criminal behaviour”.
What we demand is recompense, as well as systemically constructed guarantees that such shenanigans will not be possible in the future.
If we could put criminals in the stocks 500 years ago and pelt them with revolting substances, we can do it now too.
Where the ‘authorities’, due to criminal stupidity, have spectacularly failed to supervise themselves, those who are not so easily corrupted can successfully supervise them instead.
Does that sound hopelessly old-fashioned?
Sure. But haven’t we had enough of the alternative yet…?

You know how they sometimes complain that our comments ought to relate to the article? Well, replies also should relate at least somewhat to the comment.
Frankly, I don’t see how yours does. Maybe I missed something though.
‘Clive Williams’ virtually never says anything with any discernible meaning in it. Mostly incomprehensible gobbledegook. Either a bit loopy or a confusion-troll. Or perhaps an AI-bot still on its learning curve. I’ve taken to just jumping over all his/her/their/its posts unread.
Totalitarianism. It contains the word “total” for a reason!
This is Brendon O’Connell’s latest video. Check youtube for timestamps. If you’ve seen the arrest videos before, you may want to watch the first 4 mins of intro, then skip to 14 mins.
176. Russia Fights For It’s Life – Battle For Eurasia & The German, Israeli, China & Russia Alliance
Brendon Lee O’Connell
Feb 5, 2023
Russians, IMHO, have only one option at this point and that is violence.
They already live under a totalitarian government that has implemented CBDC.
The yoke on their neck will only get tighter.
very interesting your comment.. Do you speak Russian? When where and for how long did you live in Russia? Are you an expert in the Orthodox Christian Religion and its long history? Can you explain why most people think Russia will soon return to a Czar form of government?
I would love for you use your expertise to teach us the details that explain the differences in totalitarian governments between the USA vs Russia and between the UK vs Russia..
that will be interesting I am sure.
I have nothing but respect for the Russian people.
I do not need to speak Russian to know the history of Russia.
Don’t need to have lived in Russia to know that they live in a dictatorship.
The long history of the orthodoxy will not stop the dictatorship and democide, again.
Who said anything about returning to a Czar? Besides that is just another word for dictatorship.
Russia is not a Representative Constitutional Republic like the USA. As in our Constitution codifies human rights and liberties. The corruption of the US government is not a refutation of our form of Government, it is proof that We the People have not been vigilant. Russia has always been a form of dictatorship. The UK is and always has been a monarch and that is another form of dictatorship. Parliament is just a facade to give the illusion of representation.
Does this satisfy your demands?
Government will not save us from government. This is why we have a Second Amendment. Time will tell if the American people have the resolve to exercise it.
It seems to me that people are drastically underestimating Russia – again.
Of course if the Russian authorities are playing ball in this political game, then it’s going to look on the surface as if “Biden beats Putin”, or some other such gibberish.
But Russia is a lot bigger than Putin, and the US is a lot bigger than Biden, so let’s hope a lot of people in both countries wake up from their deep slumber very soon . . .
Not a word about that high heeled piano player Zelensky and the new Khazaria. Weird.
O’Connell discussed the “Heavenly Jerusalem Project” (a.k.a. New Israel, Khazaria, etc) in the video below (28 April). Watching the video in June was the first I’d heard of it, but others had been reporting it for much longer (e.g. Wayne Madsen in late 2014). I’m not sure if O’Connell has discussed Zelenskyy. At least as important is Pompeo and, as far as I know, O’Connell has mentioned him only briefly.

The US is just the biggest Israeli satellite. The EU, Britain, China India,and the British Empire are smaller Israeli satellites. The USSR was an Israeli satellite. What appears to be going on appears to be the banksters establishing a new Israel in what was once Khazaria and also reconquering Russia to make it safe for big Oil and for LGBT parades.
A) Russia is already conquered. That’s why Putin followed the instructions from Kissinger to invade Ukraine. And it’s why most of the oligarchs are dual citizens.
B) Kissinger & Co will probably recover, but the invasion is a disastrous failure for Putin – such that they’ll probably have to “kill” him off.
Isn’t the whole idea NOT to let people opt out? And isn’t preparing for opting out a little like preparing for opting out of paying your taxes?
Yeah, you can do it. But there will be consequences. Not to worry though, when CBDC comes to call, it’ll be wearing a smiley face; and you’ll be told how happy you are to have this new wonderful way of banking.
And most people are okay with jumping through hoops – especially the young, for whom it’s all one big game: “See how easy it was for me to get set up? These stupid old people who can’t get with it! And look on Facebook for my latest selfie with my new digital ID – great, huh?”
No one promised that opting out would be easy or without risk to life.
Is that a reason or excuse to continue to think it is possible to comply a way out?
We will all have to make a choice.
Would you rather live on your knees sucking government peter, or risk life to be more free than not?
I think this is THE HILL worth dying upon.
What, realistically, will happen is that we will imagine we’re opting out only to discover a brand new technology opting us in without our even knowing it.
As I said, they don’t mean for us to opt out in the long run.
The future is not about coercing us to go along. It will be about our not even knowing we’re going along.
The “solution” is not opting out – it’s destroying technology altogether. Are you willing to do that?
Technology is not inherently evil or bad.
Until we get to the point where CBDC is being foisted upon us, we won’t know what it means to opt out.
If the scenario plays out as you suggest, I am willing to dump technology, and live like the 1800s. I know I am not alone. I also accept that this choice could be fatal.
I would rather die on my feet, than live on my knees.
No need for us to destroy technology, Howard. Peak Everything, particularly Peak Energy, will do that anyway, whatever we do or don’t do.
We’ve blundered into a classic population overshoot event, which is a process well known to the ecologically-literate/numerate, and we’ve thus overshot completely the Earth’s capacity to accommodate so many of us, and all our demands.
Now that we’re right on the cusp of global Peak Energy, the Long Descent away from hitech industrial ‘civilisation’ is just getting going. And there’s not a damn’ thing – in the objective, real, fantasy-cleansed world – that we can do to stop it.
All the super-hitech, utterly controlled, transhumanist world
fantasies harboured by the gangsters-in-charge are just that: fantasies; along with the other one about onward and outward into the galaxy.
None of that is going to happen. Instead, once our population overshoot has resolved itself, our heavily-reduced descendants will be doing well to manage a level of human society as technically advanced as it was in the seventeenth/eighteenth centuries, in a world slowly healing itself from the devastation that we’ve wrought on it.
Once again, I welcome the cornucopians’ downvotes. That always gives me a belly-laff! And if y’all want to supplement it with spluttering, profanity-laden denunciations of my blasphemy against startrekkytechietechie holy writ, that just makes me laff even harder. Danger of urinal accidents! Go for it, fantasists! 😂
You are right. The young generations are so brainwashed. Used to be the other way around in my day (of being young).
Just a question re FB: Are the young still on Facebook?
I’ve never been on Facebook and never will. But the word is the young still love it.
There are historical examples of communities creating their own monetary policy during the Great Depression of the 1930s.
The basic idea is that a community creates their own general store. People bring their products to that store in exchange for credit chips. Those credit chips can then be used to buy other products and services.
For example, you are a chicken farmer. You have lots of eggs and not everyone needs eggs. You need a new fence. You trade your eggs to the store for credits so that you can buy the service for the fence. Then the person performing the fence work can spend those credits at the store for what they need, and not just for the eggs the farmer has to trade.
This is a parallel economy. They will try to stop it. It is our duty and responsibility to resist. Now is the time to start setting up said structures for those communities capable and so inclined.
The world will be very different staring in 2025, IMHO.
Why not just take down the house of cards and make them beg for eggs? Like the person below said, the only way out is to “refresh the tree of liberty”.
Based on history, it is because people are more willing to suffer, than to risk life to throw off the chains of tyranny.
Soon, IMHO, some people will choose to go down in flames.
Some will comply until they are standing under a noose.
Acting alone can be productive, however not a long term solution.
If history is a lesson, many innocent people will hang, before enough wake up and organize.
It is a good thing that many people in the USA are armed. I wish I could say the same about the rest of the world.
For the American War of Independence it took the Boston Massacre, Admiralty Courts, and the marches upon Concord and Lexington, before the 3 percenters picked up arms, and organized against the yoke of the crown of England.
The USA has already had Ruby Ridge and Waco. Since those events didn’t really organize the 3 percent, I hate to think what it will take.
The Tree of Liberty is thirsty.
History gluteral be spoken into books get out and learn actural real world history you selfopinioned waaart.
That isn’t an argument and your ad hominem attack only proves you have no argument.
Try harder at proving you have functional grey matter.

You are discussing laissez-faire barter, which is the oldest trade method in the world. I once knew a woman that was active within an organization, designed to put trades persons and businesses in contact with one another. It was an excellent idea, but fizzled out soon after all these businesses re-opted for the convenience of “free trade”.
I agree that localized barter is an excellent alternate trade system, but localized needs are no longer serviceable by community based goods or services. Modern markets are just too diverse for pure barter.
That diverse market of goods and services will not be available to anyone that opts out of CBDC.
Yes. Exactly. That’s why opt outs should be ridiculed until the concept is made quite dead. The civilian public keeps running and hiding from their ignorance, rather than destroying the financial systems that have imprisoned them for centuries.
It’s the corporate business model, folks. CORPORATE BUSINESS MODEL
While I agree with the sentiment, which do you think will be actually available to the average person, opting out, or complying in hopes that eventually the system is taken out?
Opting out, assuming most do, or at least a significant number, will likely do more to effect the system.
So is your idea to comply in hopes that someone else will take the system down?
The system is in a state of collapse. This slow moving collapse has been occurring for many decades, and the financial sectors that manipulate stock and bond valuations have known this all along.
The Social Security system in the United States was sold by Ronald Reagan in 1984. It has also been heavily leveraged since that time. It is totally bankrupt and limping along through heavily leveraged bond markets. .
There is no gold or silver backing Federal Reserve market valuations. The entire system has been a ponzi scheme since inception. Corporate ownership of multiple markets around the world has driven all asset valuations into a stratospheric dream land. Investors continue to suck the corporate tit, and ignore the collapsing financial exchange situations they will face when the Reset occurs.
It is not a simple situation. Opting out will be a forced option for most civilians, and limited to local or personal exchanges of goods and services.
It is a controlled collapse to roll in the new system. It is not a collapse that will leave no system.
All central banks are a ponzi scheme. The entire debt based monetary system is a ponzi scheme.
I don’t think anyone said it is a simple situation.
Vouchers, which is what a gov’t run digital currency will be, go back a long way in Blighty. They were once given out to workers instead of money, but had to be redeemed at one of the general stores happened to be owned by their boss. It didn’t end well for the workers or the boss.
Barter has been used for thousands of years. Maybe it will be used again? There’s always something that someone wants that can be supplied one way or another.
1950’s 60’s Tradesman Apprentices Retiree’s would do under the table to make up their personal goals. Individually together with others in their Communities. Bedrock was the Royal Mint Sterling.
Now That! Was only 50yr ago when we may barter not 49, 59, 69, 79 years in the Past!
What did you do back then Peter.?
Dead right, Thomas! In hard times LETS (Local Employment and Trade Systems) tend to get going spontaneously, each with their own local peoples’ currencies. It’s happened often, in many places. I’ve been involved in one where I live. Our currency units were called ‘Oaks’, and consisted simply of a central ledger with all transactions and their agreed prices recorded openly. No other scrip was needed.
LETSs are the natural response of people struggling to deal with crashed prosperity. The gics (gangsters-in-charge) don’t like them, mainly because they’re near-impossible to tax, but as everything comes cascading down, the gics’ power to prevent us doing LETS evaporates as well.
We can’t stop the Long Descent, nor the spontaneous falling of our numbers, but we can survive, simply on human ingenuity – and on the phenomenal capacity of “the tough bitch” (doyen biologist Lynn Margulis’ famous description of Mam Gaia) to heal her planet, again and again, after catastrophes much worse than anything humankind will ever be able to manage – including nuclear war; the Chicxulub asteroid impact, and the end-Permian mass-extinction event, to mention just two.

C’mon guys. Typos in comments are okay, but if you’re going to draw a sign, it’s important not to show a careless attitude.
’67 Prisoner is for Yankie cronies, they never watched it unless they were in Luuuudon. Think Atlantic Ocean great divide, Plus it was the fat arse Yonks, that did away with our Ocean Liner crossings.
Cooper’s a Nut!
He sure doesn’t get the simple point that after three viewings of the exact same picture and text, the human brain erases the information.
Amateur brainwashers don’t know this. They think that repetition makes people believe what they see . . .
Perhaps I’m just a poor subject for hypnosis, but one glimpse out of the corner of my eye of his regular pics produces a lightning-quick response on my “PageDown” key. It’s as if he didn’t exist.
That said, some of his recent one-off memes have been very good.
The Prisoner, without doubt the finest TV series ever made.
Prisoner, had to see that coming after 1984 good investment opportunities morph in early 80’s Brit music ya got it Cooper commercial dramatist.
Can we opt out of heat too?…
And food (because let’s be real – most people cannot possibly grow all their own food although everybody should be growing some)….
The world is a ruthless place. Those that think they can comply their way out, are not paying attention and are not part of the solution.
Reality is that not everyone can be saved, or has the inclination to save themselves.
History is a lesson, and if we don’t learn it, we are doomed to repeat it. This is the very reason TPTB manipulate, contrive, and obscure history, so that we are easier to control.
This is not to suggest that we give up on people.
It is to suggest that a deck of cards has only 4 aces.
It’s funny to me when people bleat about freedom but they are scared to break a single rule of society.
The system is fake, therefore the rules are fake, anyway. So it’s even funnier.
These people say they care about freedom but they don’t, they want ‘safety and security’ provided by the state.
And I will add this: at the weekend I mentioned to a group that I’m an anarchist. No one had anything to say, I suspect this makes people uncomfortable because they have been brainwashed by movies about what anarchism is – chaos. Mad Max society etc.
If you think about it, that is really not true. There would be ‘hardships’ for sure, we would lose many a convenience.
However most people would work together to help each other, fortifying themselves and their defences from a few marauders.
Anarchism is simply a rejection of authority. So of course they program us with a perception of anarchism as chaos – they need us to believe that government is a necessary evil cos it ‘keeps us safe’.
We consent through our obedience.
The only way too opt out, will be to refresh the tree of Liberty…
The sooner the better.
Be ready in a minute.
Perhaps that thought is the only thing that has stopped them going from street to street, mowing down anybody suspected of insolence towards the honourable powers that be…
Their Plan B perhaps consists of not putting ALL their eggs in the genocide basket.
Because the American people are armed, they will use systemic collapse to cull.
How many will crawl to them when their is no grid and no food?
While it won’t work in the end, they will get their democide.
