The forces of empire are one of the greatest energies which mankind must face and overcome in order to build a right-minded world which takes into consideration the unique and individual challenges and phases of evolution across peoples and regions.  Affording all equal opportunity under a decentralized monetary and governance framework is the best method to both encourage and achieve new levels of cultural and socioeconomic evolution.

Tomorrow's church will be digital. It will develop from within the social media congregations which are now building a virtual world of human relations and simulated value.  The social credit experiment taking place in China is considered horrifying to many in the West, but we cannot see that we are much further along this path with Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms which will soon incorporate digital wallets to store and transfer value between members based on each members usage and interaction within the platform, and across multiple platforms.

The Final Phase of Desperation

JcollinsCultural, Economics, Geopolitical24 Comments

We are now in the final phase of geopolitical and financial desperation as the fading world of Anglo-American dominance attempts to hold onto power in a world that has fundamentally changed and left it behind.  The diametric of left and right politics has been used by this establishment to maintain political and cultural control over mass populations for at least the last hundred years.  This is not uncommon.  Governance frameworks organically develop and evolve to protect the centers of power and wealth for the simple reason that the framework originates from within those centers.

The Invisible Empire

Some other power, some third class of individuals aside from the leaders and the scholars must exist, and this third class must have the task of thwarting mistakes, and nipping the causes of potential disturbances in the bud. There must be a body of men whose task it is to throw out the rotten apples as soon as the first spots of decay appear. A body of this nature must exist undercover. It must either be a power unto itself or be given the broadest discretionary powers by the highest authorities.”

From a 1945 report titled The World after the War: OSS-SOE, The Invisible Empire authored by the Harvard anthropologist Carleton S. Coon for OSS Chief William Donovan.

Geopolitics are Re-Aligning for the Next Massive Technological Revolution

JC Collins

Central banks are unable to provide the level of liquidity required to feed the next industrial, or technological, revolution. Global population growth has outpaced global production and quality of life factors for at least a century or more. The limitless variables which can be used to measure such factors would range across an expansive list, such as agricultural production, migration of mass populations, imperial movement of capital and wealth, military conflict, disease and overall health of populations, access to natural resources, and the ability to bring those resources to market.

Such an extensive list of variables and data inputs means there is an equally extensive list of interpretations and conclusions. But to confirm that population growth has outpaced actual production the astute observer only need consider the deep imbalances which exist across the regions and populations of the world. The non-sporadic, or non-random, distribution of wealth follows the flow of liquidity and access to capital. This has always been the case, whether it was Roman coins or Federal Reserve bank notes.

The total XRP counter read 33,733,332,712.47

Edom watched the numbers flick lower on the side of the building across the loop rail as the elevator cartridge fired him upwards to the 147th floor. The speed of the outside world was disorienting against the perfect stillness around him. There was no sense of movement or non-movement within the cartridge. The outside world just stopped moving at the same moment there was an almost inaudible swoosh as the doors opened behind him and he turned around to exit.

Baby Bone Soup and Clean Underwear

By JC Collins

For Pieter….

The world is maybe a year away from having its first trillionaire. Such wealth accumulation will come from blockchain enterprises, or the forthcoming sudden explosion of artificial intelligence mixed with robotics and organic printing. Sudden because few are considering the speed in which technologies will come together and give shape to the future.

We all know about blockchain, robotics, quantum computers, artificial intelligence, 3D printers, both organic and non-organic, and the impact which each of these could potentially have on human existence. But imagine all of those technologies consolidating and creating whole new industries and economic opportunities.

Where would the average humans even begin to understand the complex evolution of the world around them?

A New American Moment

JcollinsCultural, Economics, Premium POM

Throughout 2017 Chinese holdings of US Treasury bonds did decrease and had an uptick again near the end of the year. Alignment and timing aside, the process of reducing USD foreign exchange reserves while increasing the interest rate and incrementally depreciating the dollar agains the renminbi, yen, euro, and pound, will only continue to bring jobs back to America. Tariffs that may be measured against China by Trump will only provide the monetary authorities in Beijing with the pretext to reduce US bonds even further. It all plays out as planned.

Smart commodities contracts and smart stock and bond contracts are coming. It will revolutionize the world and establish trust across all the financial and monetary spectrums. These smart contracts will not be based on the USD or any one national currency. These contracts will be based on the blockchain technology. The crypto method which one chooses to use while interacting with the blockchain will not erode trust in the system.
