Many of you know almost inherently that whatever is coming is not good. Others are researching it now. This is the time to pay attention to the happenings of the world.
The IMF recently called for a “New Bretton Woods moment.” The World Economic Forum is calling for “The Great Reset.” In America we were caught up in the election, but even as votes were being counted, the types of people who attend Davos and other ultra-exclusive meetings were already making plans well-beyond the next four years.
The US is increasingly being looked at by many as having abused the nations of the world by way of our dollar being the reserve currency, and our ‘unchecked capitalism’.
China is about to become the largest economy in the world and has largely recovered from the virus — or are at least being convincing about that.
Central banks all over the world are working on a new form of all-digital currency that I can practically guarantee will be heavily tracked and controlled.
The central bankers’ hands have been forced; they have allowed the big commercial banks to become “too big to fail”, and now there are quadrillions of dollars of exposure in potential losses on the table. They can’t reasonably deleverage or unwind such debts without some huge losses occurring somewhere.
Or by just keeping everyone’s money.
When the leaders convene to decide how to mask or eliminate the great debts between countries, China will have a place at that table, largely due to holding a tremendous amount of gold — an amount we don’t know, though many experts believe it is more than the US holds.
Fiat money systems always work, until they don’t. When we completely decoupled the US dollar from gold in 1971, we entered into a form of a Ponzi scheme. This scheme is almost at its end.
The IMF will be at the table, as will the ECB and others. Even America’s allies are feeling the financial pain emanating beyond our economy and onto the balance sheets of the rest of the world. They are getting tired of it. Many are seeing the US as a bully.
And we should probably face up to the fact that we have been a bully, and now more than ever, retreating into ourselves with nationalism and protectionism is the last thing we should be doing.
But what happens when it comes down to freedom? Where will Americans draw the line?
Global cooperation is needed to unwind these debts and resolve the messes that have become of the governments of the world. If the US is not holding a primary seat, it will literally be China and the rest of the world against the United States — not in a war, but in a decision to separate our currency from their balance sheets if we don’t play along.
There will be calls for a global order, but not with America at the forefront. There will be calls for a global currency, and it will not be the US dollar. New financial networks have already been built to avoid US sanctions and general interference with trade and cross-border payments. When everything is ultimately in place, regardless of US cooperation, they will pull the trigger and the US will find itself outside of the global economy, ostracized.
All of those Eurodollars flooding back into the US could very well result in significant inflation — even hyperinflation.
We forget that the US Dollar has only been the world’s reserve currency for 75 years. We haven’t learned from history that there are fairly predictable cycles every 90–100 years.
Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates, arguably the most successful hedge fund on the planet, believes in such cycles. Dalio says we are at the end of a long-term debt cycle, and this is where Thucydities trap comes into play — where the challenging power (China) has gotten stronger and overtakes the current power (the US). The authors of the book “The Fourth Turning” from 1997, William Strauss and Neil Howe, wrote that there would be upheaval starting around year 2020. Simon Dixon had also written nearly ten years ago in his book “Bank to the Future: Protect Your Future Before Government Goes Bust” that there would be a significant change in the banking and monetary system beginning in 2020.
We could all say that sounded like bullshit back in 2019, but we see what 2020 has brought us already, and the writing is on the wall for still more changes to take place.
The US is losing a tremendous amount of its bargaining power to call the shots on the global stage. China will be deferred to in league with the IMF in determining the new monetary order.
From a governing perspective, they are welcoming of fascist and totalitarian leaders due to the anger and discontent brewing in populations everywhere. They promise stability and safety by heavy-handed control. Pick a dystopian sci-fi novel — any one of them — something eerily like that is coming.
It’s no big surprise that MMT has reared its head — technology will mean fewer jobs, but money still needs to change hands. So you’ll get your rations — including cash. Cash that will have an expiration date, and rules on where it can and cannot be spent. CBDC accomplishes this nicely.
I will tell you the wealthy have already been making adjustments to their portfolios for what is to come for a while now. They did not make their fortune by being careless fools. Many are trying to decide just where they will live, and which non-dollar-based assets to bother with.
An increasing number of some of the most esteemed financial analysts are also in agreement that things are rapidly unraveling and that change is afoot.
I think most of us, those who are paying attention at least, already do see things unraveling. Many are just envisioning picking up the pieces and continuing on once it passes. But that is not what will happen, there will be no time to pick up the pieces, and there may not be any pieces to pick up.
Such changes are large in scale and can come swiftly, as most would not willingly enter into them. People will either be seduced into a new world by promises of aligning politics on what society should look like, or they will be pulled in kicking and screaming.
Globalists do not think like most of us. I am not one to believe that there is a room with ten highly intelligent illuminati figures that are smart enough to re-engineer the world on their own. I do believe however, that with a handful of charismatic leaders that have the ability to sell their ideas, that are in line with one another, and have connections to some of the wealthiest and most powerful people and governments in the world, then it’s not much of a game of chess at that point; they can simply fold the game up altogether.
In short, whatever they can’t accomplish directly due to the resistance of intelligent human beings, they find ways to accomplish indirectly via narrative and changing the way we think about things. 2+2=5, remember?
Times of disaster and despair open the door for change, both good and bad. When the strong are at their weakest point, that is exactly the time when the globalists will attempt to step in and re-work society. It is the same reason that China has stepped up its rhetoric and does not appear to be backing down over Taiwan. They know America is in a disadvantageous position, as are many other nations of the world, all at the same time.
Time is ripe for change, but the US is not holding the cards any longer. Many of you already know this almost inherently — you can feel that whatever is coming is not good.
One key fracture in the global understanding is because the deal was for the rest of the world to use our currency, and we would be the buyers. It has gotten to the point where the US currency has become damaging to the other nations’ economies, and suddenly, Americans can no longer afford to be the consumers for the rest of the world.
Those who are rich but not in tremendous wealth have reason to worry; it doesn’t matter which country you run to or where you park your assets once there is a global currency under a global regime. Anything you own that is not gold or Bitcoin can be taken from you by the government.
Gold was even taken from US citizens from 1934 to 1974.
A fully digital programmable currency means they could literally set the tax rate for each individual person if they chose. If they want to take from the rich and give to the poor, that can easily be programmed in. It would be as simple as instituting a higher tax on anyone whose income, assets or even net worth are above a certain threshold, and re-distributing it via UBI or stimulus for anyone whose income is below a certain threshold. Caps on savings amounts are already being discussed within the bounds of CBDC.
Many people laughed and scoffed at the idea of UBI — but regardless of the reason, no one is laughing now. US citizens are desperate for assistance as their government dicks around with a childish game. They may not be starving for food quite yet, but they are starving for help and they are starving for improvements.
The question becomes, what are you willing to give up for such a super man to swoop down and save the planet from itself?
Change is coming. Are you ready? Are you even in a position to attempt to be ready? Many are not. They will have to go with the flow or they may find themselves going against a global system of collective authority.
Let it be known to the future, this was the year The Great Reset was put into action. Today, I am free to write these words with my own phone and computer, upload them with my Internet connection from a home that is owned, not rented, to a writing platform that allows individuals to earn money based on their free choice of what they want to read. I am very concerned what I just wrote will seem strange in the coming years.
“Let the boy cry wolf” they say, “for all will tire of hearing him, and when the wolf does come, no one will listen, and they will be devoured.”
