The geopolitical hotspots of Eastern Europe and the South China Sea continue to be pivot points which America is focusing on to retain some form of influence over global interactions as the USD system unwinds. The tension between Russia and the NATO build upon its border is the most worrisome. As we’ve covered before, control of the Eurasian continent is the objective.
It’s always been interesting to me that a worldwide movement called Anonymous was built from the script of a Hollywood movie. V for Vendetta and its use of the Guy Fawkes mask has symbolized the resistance to a corrupt and power-hungry elite for years now. Masks are some of the most powerful symbols used by humans and the Anonymous mask is no different. (Reference the last line of my article titled The Geopolitics of XRP - “No more masks”.)
USD, SDR, Economic Collapse, Sovereign Debt, China, Russia, SWIFT, and SAP
The fear of an economic collapse is a constant emotion which spans across financial demographics and business news cycles. Everything from sovereign debt pressures to currency wars, with trade wars sprinkled in for good measure, are leveraged as potential sparks for the next crisis.
Over the last five years, I have made a reasonable case that central bank monetary policies around Quantitative Easing (QE), and the subsequent Quantitative Tightening (QT), or normalization of monetary policy, would not lead to the dollar collapse and economic turmoil that so many had been predicting. There has been much written about the QE response to the financial crisis of 2008 and the inevitable normalization of those policies which would follow. So let’s just focus on the basic economics to help us understand the broader impact of these policies and the direction the world now appears to be taking as a response to the last crisis.
Elements of the Philosophy of Decentralization JC Collins The worlds first attempt at globalization has failed because there was no alternative to the centralization of wealth. In this article, I will make the case that Colonialism and Neo-Colonialism were built around the centralized principles which both Capitalism and Communism ... Read More
Nothing you have been told is true.
The 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles which President Trump fired at Syria on April 6, 2017, has left most supporters either surprised or confused. In some cases both. The rampant propaganda which has bookended this event is even more unbelievable than that which accompanied the media onslaught in the lead up to the Iraq invasion of 2003.
The emotional illogic contagion which spreads when we are fighting “for the children” is the most effective of the propaganda tactics. It taps into our deepest and most human characteristic. The need to protect our children and those who are innocent is something which no one could argue with, lest they are labeled a monster.
The alleged sarin gas attack on the Syrian people by President Bashar al-Assad fits this profile and brings back memories of Iraqi soldiers taking Kuwait babies out of incubators and throwing them on the floor. These fabricated events manufacture the required support to rally mass populations behind a cause and war which they otherwise may not agree with. Humans are emotion based and can be conditioned with relative ease on most issues.
The Year of Long Knives has begun. It will not stop with Info Wars. It will not stop with Trump. Now that the beast has a taste it will move forward gorging on all. The end result will be genocide and starvation. But there is hope. This battle has been fought and won on a massive scale numerous times throughout recorded human history, the American Civil War, the American War for Independence, and the Protestant Reformation are just some of the most recent examples within Western Civilization.
A connection between the North Korean peace summit and the global adoption of the digital asset XRP may not be holistically obvious to those of us who focus primarily on utility and the expansion of Ripple’s customer base and product offerings. Such connections aren’t easily supported by direct evidence and corporate announcements from either Ripple or the banks and institutions implementing xCurrent, xRapid or xVia. The sole function of Ripple and its business strategies is to develop product offerings and build corridors for the widespread adoption of XRP.
What we call International Liberalism is in practice the consolidation of socialism, fascism, and communism. All stand in contrast to the ideals of capitalism and freedom. Where fascism was focused on re-engineering civilization through race, communism used the divisions between classes as its casus belli. Socialism, in turn, served as the ideological building blocks which could be added incrementally to the capitalist and democratic norms. These socialist building blocks slowly corrupted the capitalist framework in the Western world. This engineered corruption would be subsequently used to build the case against capitalism and promote the global Marxist Revolution.
JC Collins Things are strange and George Soros has stated that everything has gone wrong. Depends on your perspective I suppose. It’s a rainy Sunday morning and I’m here staring at the computer screen wondering what to write about. Through my headphones the sounds of a YouTube video called ... Read More
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.
