American psychologist James Hillman said, “The capacity for people to kid themselves is huge. Living on illusions or delusions, and the re-establishing of these illusions or delusions requires a big effort to keep them from being seen through. But a very old idea is at work behind our current state of affairs: enantiodromia, or the Greek notion of things turning into their opposite.” Have you noticed this happening? I sure have.
Heraclitus said, “cold things warm, warm things cool, wet things dry and parched things get wet.” When things reach their extreme, they turn into their opposite. Putin turns into Biden, and Biden into Putin; the U.S. bails out everyone and China starts letting companies fail. Liberals become tyrants, and so on. At the end of WWII, the U.S. was the greatest and richest producer in the world. Now we are the world’s greatest consumers and debtors, riding on a reserve currency that used to be backed by gold, then backed by the oil trade (through the petrodollar), and now backed by perhaps the pharma-dollar? Or is it the faith and credit of the U.S. government? Fact is, our currency is backed by the credit of the world’s biggest debtor. Let that soak in.
Today, I’d like to present to you the business model of the United States of America. But first, a little history about Church and state. In medieval Europe, it was the collaboration between Church and state that created the monarch. It was the period ending Roman authority in the fifth century to the beginnings of the great Reformation in the early sixteenth century. They were both two arms of the same ruling body. The state would collect taxes from the peasants and pay the Church to help them govern the people. Through manmade laws and fear-mongering people with the wrath of God, these two arms had complete control. Submit to the Church or go to hell! Take the jab or lose your life and die! Really? There’s nothing inbetween?
People during this period didn’t have freedom of speech and were not allowed to practice medicine outside of the Church’s authority. The Church had its own hospital and the King’s doctors worked there. The Church and state hindered all other medicine under the guise of “conspiracy theory.” Its message was that medicine practiced outside of the state and Church authority was illegal, superstitious, and could not be trusted. Nonetheless, people gathered in secret places to dissect dead bodies and learn more about themselves and science. Look no further than Michelangelo’s secret code, in the Creation of Adam, which contains a hidden brain outlined by God’s billowing shroud. Two neurosurgery researchers have indeed confirmed that it is an anatomically accurate painting of the human brain.
Allow me to interrupt the flow of history by pointing out, at this very moment, that 4,600 doctors and scientists (unintimidated by the threats of the state-corporate monarch), have already signed the Rome Declaration about crimes against humanity. In part, the declaration states that “public policy makers have chosen to force a ‘one size fits all’ treatment strategy, resulting in needless illness and death, rather than upholding fundamental concepts of the individualized, personalized approach to patient care which is proven to be safe and more effective.” An international summit was held in Rome earlier this month where medical professionals had the opportunity to compare studies and assess the effectiveness of different treatments developed in hospitals, offices and research labs around the world.
Now back to history. It wasn’t until the Colonial period between 1607 and 1776 that a spirit of freedom grew out of the colonists’ thirst for New World opportunities by way of the New World, otherwise known as America, the land of the free and the brave, supposedly. I’m trying to be free and brave by writing this post, and I hope that I can succeed. In the name of liberal democracy, the Church and State were separated in America. We are taught that this separation protects the Church from being controlled by the state, but it also protects the people from tyranny. This can be interpreted from the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution; “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”
But it appears that the new “church” might be transhumanism working through corporations and big pharma. One might argue that the new religion is transhumanism, which Britannica defines as a “movement devoted to promoting the research and development of robust human-enhancement technologies.” I’ve written about this before and how it’s a big part of the World Economic Forum’s agenda. My goal for this post is not to repeat that information, but to convey what I see as rising tyranny as a direct result of a faulty business model which is corporatocracy disguised as capitalism. Corporatocracy is a society or system that is governed or controlled by corporations. One may argue that China will never become a corporatocracy because the CCP won’t allow corporations to have more power than them.
Like the Church and state in medieval history, two sister companies co-manage one global product that I’d say is the biggest business in the world. This product is the U.S. dollar operating as the world reserve currency. The U.S. Government (through the U.S. Treasury) manages the import and export of this product around the world, which is based on all kinds of corruption and special interests, while the Federal Reserve manages the supply of this product in the world. The Government has the world’s biggest group of bond holders (treasury bonds are marketable, fixed-interest U.S. government debt securities), while the Federal Reserve is a private corporation, separate from the U.S. government, with a small group of shareholders.
In 1971, when Nixon took the U.S. dollar off the gold standard “temporarily,” the nature of the dollar started to change. One might say it used to be backed by something real that could be exchanged for goods and services needed to survive and thrive. It was currency, which was an IOU for something else that stores real value. But after 1971, the dollar took a turn for the worse: to multiply itself. I like to think of it as cancer. According to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, “Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. Cancer develops when the body’s normal control mechanism stops working. Old cells do not die and instead grow out of control, forming new, abnormal cells.”
When the crash happened in 2008, old cells were not allowed to die and new cells couldn’t replace them. Companies had become “too big to fail.” In my opinion, anything that is too big to fail is too big to exist, but certain people had too much to lose, and those people had close ties with the government. So these abnormal self-righteous cells didn’t go away as nature would have it; instead, they started multiplying and creating dysfunction in the body. Because interest rates have been artificially suppressed, these multiplying abnormal cells, hungry for yield, started gaming and gambling in every area of the body. Before we knew it, the too-big-to-fail banks and corporations had spread throughout the economy. Soon enough, the patient got very sick, and is now in the hospital on life support.
It’s an eerie coincidence that a sick business model led to a sick society, a world pandemic, sick people, and a sick economy. “The dollar is dying,” the gamers and gamblers say, “so buy Bitcoin.” Now back to my explanation of the business model behind the United States. Here comes another competing company in the global economy, to threaten the Mother Fed and Father Gov. They sell a similar product that can be used to multiply itself or to exchange for the dollar to exchange again for things that are needed to survive and thrive. The difference? This company is owned by the people who buy the product. There are no stock holders or bond holders. And these people go out and form many more such companies (thousands of crypto currencies).
Here’s the problem with the clever crypto idea that rose up out of a sick global economy through a sick global society. Bitcoin is based on the same premise of something for nothing, but it relies on bagging other people. You cannot get rich off crypto unless someone else becomes poor as a result of it. It’s a game. It is not based on labor or production, but on trading. It has no intrinsic value. It doesn’t solve any problems, but creates more with the vast amount of energy needed to make it work on a grand scale (watch the new documentary Headwind 21). Look at Europe and the UK going through an energy crisis right now. How can we waste more energy? Just because it’s owned by the people doesn’t mean it works for the people. It has no mechanism for lending and borrowing, which is the backbone of the entire financial system. It doesn’t fix supply shortages in the real economy. It doesn’t solve inflation. The vast majority is owned by few people. It does one thing well; it does a great job of soaking up liquidity to prevent hyperinflation from happening right now, as the government creates a plethora of new dollars out of nothing.
The more all these products are used to multiply, the less they are used to exchange for things needed to survive and thrive. And the less money goes to create real productive businesses that operate on the law of supply and demand. These products multiply until the multiplied version of themselves is much greater than things produced by the body, for the body. That’s why people die from cancer. The cancer spreads through the entire body and the patient cannot stay on life support. The patient has to die or something has to cure the cancer, and remove the abnormal cells, which are the debt and all the waste funded by bad loans, leverage, and big risktakers out to scam you and make a quick buck. Companies that don’t make money naturally need to end naturally, if we want to live in a free world that works for everyone.
How does the patient get better at this stage of the disease? By revaluing gold to consume the debt, instead of allowing supply shortages to create inflation, widening the wealth gap. More than one hundred countries have physical gold as sovereign assets. Those that don’t have any can get it. Yes, a lot of people stand to lose a lot of perceived value if they don’t have gold. Unfortunately, that’s how it has to be if we want to end this craziness. Perhaps the gold standard wasn’t the ideal system; it’s not for me to judge. But that’s what we have in place, underneath the mirage of illusions, for the system to survive. A basket of currencies backed by real physical gold is the alternative to a complete collapse and end to freedom. Go buy some physical gold now because it won’t be around much longer. When the supply is gone, the price will soar. While it’s soaring, I think that wise people will hold it. They won’t play the market maker’s games until the paper market (not backed by anything) defaults and the physical price is separated from the mass-manipulated digital one. I believe that’s going to be the last big trade.
The dollar is a sinking ship and interest rates will be dipping below zero. Enantiodromia is right around the corner, and we will be snapping back sooner than anyone thinks to something that works. I heard a great interview this weekend by Dr. Stephen Leeb. What we are seeing now is an extreme oversupply of currency, and an increasing shortage of resources needed to thrive and survive. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said it right, “The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.” But these guys aren’t going to let it rain because they don’t want to get wet. Unfortunately, their bad decisions will hurt innocent people who trusted them and their “full faith and credit” (what now backs the dollar). It means something like I trust in you because you trust in you, no other reason. Trusting in the credit of someone with nearly $30,000,000,000,000 in debt is beyond insane. Investing in someone else’s massive liability is a dangerous game, especially when you’re getting paid $0 to do so. Think, and there’s nothing more to say.
