‘Whimsey’day roll out,,
I’m feeling quite light-hearted aboit things right now. Even checking over some of my usual reads, where doom and gloom tend to be the precedent, I am not getting drawn into the ‘woe is us’ crap.
Yeah, if you only focus on certain attributes of what The Fraud is doing right now, things look mighty gloomy, and in sone ways are, but look at the bigger picture, at all of the shenanigans The Fraud is attempting, globally as well as internally, and what I see, is a three year old throwing a temper tantrum because no one else understands the rules it wants to play by. Russia poised for nastiness in the Crimean area is only ‘just in case’ the three year old steps out of line. China doing its thing in the China Sea is exactly what China has been trying to do for a decade or more and only now has the balls to do it since they bought off The Fraud in the last selection cycle. The economy has been on the skids for 14 years now, longer if you walk it back to the 70s when we took ourselves off a gold standard, and even further back when during a Christmas break in 1913, some Fabian Representatives and Senators chumped the American Public with some crap written by Bankers, and finally nailed the escape clause closed by making senators a popular vote versus State appointed; removing the last vestige of States Rights, insured in the 9th and 10th amendments.
But its all Kabuki theater.
I’ve said it before. What is taking place behind 8′ steel barricades toped with razor wire and defended by NG that are barely armed with almost no back support is a fricking illusion designed and sustained(by the media) to give the appearance of power.
They have only the power we allow them over us.
And we outnumber them by quite a large margin. They may have the military leadership enthrall, but the E5s and below? I highly doubt it. Even the O levels below O5 are highly questionable, which is why they are pushing their purge of the upper ranks. Warrants, the real mustang’s,,, I laugh.
As for the surveillance aspects. There is so much of it, they will be deluged in it when they start to pick the seams of the mess apart. And while AI will assist, the shifts we use in language to get around the blocking and fact checkers on Fakebook already show the inherent weakness in such.
The meme above misses one point I failed to account for. America has NEVER been a monarchy type mental state, EVER. All of europe was and still exhibits signs of such even 150 years after the last monarch was neutralized to a figurehead status. Mexico had its monarchy. Canada, same. Most all of Central and South America has been borderline socialist/flat communist since the great wars and when they weren’t, they were under some monarchs reign, so the mental states are similar to Europe.
Head over the Pacific to the ‘land of the rising sun’ and the monarchy was still in power through all of WWII. China has dabbled in so many forms of Government from monarchy to bureaucracy to piracy and mafia type gang for so long, that they haven’t imploded is testament to the culture of its people. And where they will go when their current imperialism push falters is anyones guess
Look at it another way. Before the United States, how much ‘progress’ had the world seen? How far has the world come since 1776?
How much has the world population grown since that time?
How many characters have predicted horrific failures of resources, time and again, and been abysmally wrong!!!since?
How many diseases have been utterly wiped out of daily existence since then?
How big is slave trade now?(and I will give fair share of credit due, to Great Britain for that one.)
The illusion is created out of hatred and shame for slights, and jealousy. The country of rebels showed the kings and queens the real power was in the people, not the highnesses.
Corporates are scared of the future. That, IMO , is why they backed The Fraud in the last shamelection. The proliferation of Sourceforge, 3D printers, the open source nature of Maker Tech that zooms around the world on electrons that can’t be silenced. The people like me that ask, “how can I,,,?” instead of “whos gonna do/make it?” Even China is worried because most of their production is moving out of large factories and into small shops that can ‘retool’ on an hours notice by changing the programming in a computer.
Power needs are starting to be downsized for immediate needs by using large scale UPS systems that only need the Infrastructure to maintain, not rely on. I dwell on this in my how to go off grid book: that solar and wind are fine in small scale where it can be adapted to immediate needs, but to use such for large scale infrastructure is ludicrous and wasteful. What we saw in Texas earlier this year only gave my argument more weight.
Yes, we are on the cusp of change, and the winds are howling, as well as the Elites and dependents, but the change has begun and WILL. NOT. STOP. The flailing of fraudulant powers is not just due to the fraud itself, but resistance to the evolution we are entering. If they ‘win’, this evolution will die in its infancy and the corporatist world will enslave the people forever.
I’m light hearted because I see the beast is reacting out of fear, not power, and that fear, is fear of US, the people.
Let it be afraid, it has reason to.
