Sunday, Feb. 12th, 2012 – The world is still playing games. If it were just a board game, played with little toy tokens and play money, it would be meaningless. It’s not that simple. How much innocent blood is in the currency? There will be a lot of people trying to toss their wallets in the weeds, to get rid of the evidence. The Eternal consequences don’t wash of with earthly soap and water. The guilt sticks to them. When the truth comes out in the open, there is no place to hide. The rich men of the earth will call for the mountains to fall on them. Misplaced trust will be rewarded with despair and torment. Before that happens, there is still a choice. We don’t have to participate in, and consent to this madness. People would be shocked at the simple things that are accepted as prayer.
Wednesday, Feb. 8th, 2012 – The media must write fiction while it watches the world go by. Nothing reported looks like reality , to me. It isn’t just my perception. What they report doesn’t line up to what I hear from people in the real world. I heard the perfect description of media, today. “Those people must not go shopping.” How the talking heads can report the inflation and unemployment figures and keep a straight face, I don’t know. Then, it’s my turn to come back to reality. The media and public figures they report on believe that the currency is money. There’s the answer. They live in an alternate reality. How else could anyone believe that they’re so special that the basic laws of the universe don’t apply to them?
Monday, Jan. 6th, 2012 – Now that the Super Bowl is over for another year, we can all get back to the real world. Our decisions are in the present. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow will get here, soon enough. I know that some people don’t realize that some places in the world had more immediate issues than a football game. I know that there are homeless people, people who are facing eviction or foreclosure and people who’s days on earth are numbered by terminal illness. In those circumstances, people just want there to be a tomorrow without trouble. We’ll see what can be done about making the trouble go away.
Tuesday, Jan. 31st, 2012 – When do people dig in their heels and say that enough is enough? 2012 now is identified as a turning point in history. As conditions exist, destruction is the destination, unless a drastic change in direction is taken. Lip service and legislation won’t get it done. No election will change it.
The environmental movement has done as much or more to promote the slavery of Corporatism as any social movement in human history. Yet, I have to concede one point to that humanistic philosophy. The accusation has always been that the environment gets no rest from the abuses from mankind. That much is true. It is the duplicity of Environmentalism’s attention that I object to. Saving the whales and seals isn’t the same thing as stopping Monsanto and Dow Chemical from rendering the food supply unfit to eat and spraying dioxin on the farmland of the U. S. Preserving habitat from human activity is just a pretense for ending private property rights, when release of radiation into the environment goes on, unchallenged. 40 years of evidence condemns the environmental movement as corporate shills, doing public relations work for the structure that finances it’s activities. Fines in millions mean nothing, in a world of profits in trillions.
Monday, Jan. 30th, 2012 – Choices. The most complex problems are either avoided or created with simple choices. Is the currency, money? Is “the way it is”, the law? Do we live in the country, America, or do we occupy it as alien shareholders in the United States? They seem to be simple questions. The same yes or no answer to the first two questions decides the answer to the third question. If the currency is money and and “the way it is” is the law, then there are no choices left. That answer is a voluntary submission to being property of the United States. The result is to be managed to the maximum benefit of the Federal corporation, the United States. It means taking on the yoke of perpetual debt slavery. It means that a commercial action has been taken. It means support for actions that the individual may object to, on moral issues of conscience. In the end, it means suffering the consequences of actions by people that act by presumed Power of Attorney. The individual is legally incompetent and a proxy renders decisions for the individual. This is the road that people have taken. It leads to a bad end.
Thursday, Jan. 26th, 2012 – The news over the past 48 hours was a surreal fog, imposed against the dark shadows of global social forest. With the State of the Union Address followed by the Federal Reserve activities, and underscored by developments in Europe, it just looked like shaky steps on an uncertain path. The same foreboding gloom hung in the air as a rumor of con artists and organized shoplifters in the area. Lock up the house, know where your children are, and stay away from the windows. At least zombies look like walking dead people. These days, you can’t be sure of what “normal” people will do, especially if they’re wearing suits and ties. They may not be the kind of help you were hoping for.
Wednesday, Jan. 25th, 2012 – In all of the speculation about the global economy, and the European debt crisis, there is a question that I haven’t seen asked.
“What would happen if all of the currencies of the world collapsed, on the same day?”
With all of the apocalyptic speculation about 2012, I see the answer being between the extremes. Of course that would mean a period of civil disruption. Some places would be worse than others. But what would people do to transact business? I see it coming out with commodities indexed to each other, in parity pricing. Currency would be replaced by private contracts specified in quantities of commodities.
An ounce of gold = so many ounces of silver, so many tons of coal, a set quantity in bushels of produce, a specified amount of crude oil, on through equivalence in manufactured goods. A stabilized economy would of course be subject to the unforeseen. That’s what keeps life interesting.
