Central banking: Central planners of the apocalypse

It’s almost impossible to find something in our late-stage imperial idiocracy that isn’t a scam.

Education is a scam. You learn a fraction today of what kids at school did 100 years ago, and it’s getting worse.

Politics is a scam. The Labor-Liberal establishment controls all the minor parties, and go through the farce of politics and elections just so you’ll keep believing in the system that farms you.

Income taxes are a scam. Money isn’t a commodity like gold or silver anymore, and there’s no reason why governments couldn’t just create the money and spend it directly into the economy.… Read the rest

This is how Rome fell

I remember reading Edward Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire as a teen. It was epic. Imagining as a once-grand civilisation turned decadent and weak collapsed under the weight of a tsunami of barbarism, while the elite focused on lining their pockets and played political games and the people failed to notice the danger until it was too late.

The Romans didn’t notice when they collapsed. Instead, people only realised it had happened later, when they looked back and saw that it was all gone. The fruits of civilisation, which they had taken for granted, were no more. As our children, the remnant of our race, will do one day.… Read the rest

Australia’s North African Destiny & How To Prevent It

This piece first appeared on XYZ.

There is a tendency among people in our time to think of history in basically progressive terms. We tend to assume that we started off as apes, became brutes, toiled as serfs, liberated ourselves as peasants and now stand sovereign and enlightened as the technologically godlike, infinitely reasonable and eminently sane modern man (or woman or trans* person or genderqueer). We believe that history has been, if not a moral arc of progress as described by Barry Soetoro-Obama, at least an incremental improvement upon what went before. In this worldview, or what the Germans perfectly call a weltanschauung, we are the pinnacle of humanity over time.… Read the rest

‘Fake News’ Is Fake News

This article appeared originally on The Daily Caller.

All of a sudden across the nation citizens are being warned by the media to avoid a dangerous threat to democracy and our way of life. It is not weapons of mass destruction or ISIS or Vladimir Putin that we must be frightened of this time, although Russia plays a role. The latest threat to our peace and safety is something called ‘fake news’.

The New York Times has published a piece linking fake news to the gunman who marched into Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant in Washington, D. C. last week with a gun, let everyone walk out and then oddly waited for arrest.… Read the rest

India’s Cash Ban: What The Media Isn’t Telling You

This article appeared originally on XYZ.

Something massive happened in India two weeks ago, and as usual the fake news mainstream media outlets have uttered barely a word about it. The Indian government banned money.

Now, so far they’ve only banned the 1000 and 500 rupee notes, but it’s just the beginning. It’s the first stage of a plan to digitise currency entirely.

This is a cruel, insane act in a country in which only half the population has a bank account. The country has been thrown into turmoil since, and there is a revolutionary anger growing among the population.… Read the rest

The Alt-Right And The Death Of Conservatism

This article appeared originally on The Daily Caller.

As though to ensure that this year’s presidential campaign is forever remembered as the most bizarre American political spectacle of the last hundred years, many high-ranking Republicans have recently indicated that they will not be supporting their party’s candidate and instead will be voting for Hillary in November.

Have we ever seen such high dudgeon in the ship of state? On the stormy seas such treachery would be rewarded with the plank. This begs the answer to the question that many in the alt-right have been asking for a while now: Why is it that the ship of state only ever steers to port?… Read the rest

Central Bankers Have Set Us Up For Catastrophe

One of the many titanic entities which collapsed during the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2009 was the reputation of former Chairman of the United States Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan. Presumably another one was his ego, although he’s not letting on. This man was held singularly responsible for the Great Moderation of the 1990’s, the economic miracle in the US of low inflation, rising nominal (that means not real) wages, statistically low unemployment (also not real) and steadily rising asset prices. Just about everyone was happy. The 0.01% received a massive boost to their net worth as leverage (that’s debt to us peasants) became cheaper and corporate valuations skyrocketed due to the replacement of US workers and consumers with much cheaper versions overseas.… Read the rest

Order Is Breaking Down

This post originally appeared on XYZ.

Does anyone still not think that the world got real weird about a year or two ago? It’s like the globe went from being a placid pond to a washing machine. Things that you never would have imagined ten years ago are now daily occurrences in the news. As usual, the mainstream media is explaining away events while XYZ has been covering this trend in detail. How can we make sense of the atmosphere of insanity which we can feel is spreading around the world?

It’s my view that we are living through a time when the paradigm upon which the present order is based is breaking down.… Read the rest
