Before anything else, it’s important to understand that whilst the decisions taken by Prime Minister Liz Truss and her Chancellor represent nothing less than doubling down on the very same stupidity that brought us to where we are now, the chaos they have caused is not itself responsible for the bigger system collapse that is underway.
Like most things in the public realm today, it just serves someone’s self-interest and an agenda that doesn’t help anyone else, for it to be made to look that way.
No, this blog is not an apology for Liz Truss and the ridiculous nature of her first 3 weeks in No. 10. But as I wrote before the disastrous ’mini budget’ last week, there remains a chance that Truss will do a massive u turn on everything, and for anyone with just a little humanity who cares about where this is all going, this surely must be a shared hope.
So much hides in plain sight in this money obsessed world. Smoke and mirrors and sleight of hand are at work everywhere. And as usual, even when everything is turning to chaos, neither the media nor the majority of people are even considering, let alone asking the questions about all that is happening, as we all really should.
For instance, how is it possible or how can it be that the £Pound can go into free fall and push the British economy to the edge of an economic crash, just because financial traders and people working in money and the markets lose their nerve or start placing bets on what will happen to our currency next?
There is little to be gained by exploring this massively dangerous anomaly here. Other than to state clearly, that this is perhaps the best demonstration of where power in this money-based order lies. And that the meaningful influence and real responsibility for life and living does not lie with the people who we might think.
Begin to consider just how this situation rolls out across almost everything and every part of life. You will soon have other questions in your mind about how every part of life could reach a point where we all exist at the whim of just a handful of people who have no care for anything out of their sight.
Out of sight, out of mind, is dictating the quality, content and realities of millions of people lives and their life experience. Not ethically, consciously or considerately. But in yet more ways that money – for just these greedy few – can be made.
No politician within the system that we have now will stand up to or do anything that will inhibit, restrain or redirect the activities of these interests. Not least of all because those running, managing and operating what are basically scams have the power to destroy economies and currencies in a moment; But because of our politician’s slavish devotion to this same money-based order that all of their futures – no matter their party – have been formed.
The financial, economic and currency system that we have today may well have worked well for the majority of people, IF there had been a sizeable and unavoidable chunk of ethical practices, morality and basic humanity involved from the very start.
Sadly, not only have principles and consideration of the consequences of every decision, over many points removed never been present, the whole system and everything it touches has become infected, dehumanised and even less caring about what happens to anyone and everyone else, as the flaws of the system have evolved and spread to everything since the Gold Standard was abandoned in 1971.
This is NOT the only way things can be.
This is NOT how things should be.
This is NOT how anything needs to be.
There is regrettably an element of truth in the thinking that nothing or no part of this can be changed, at least for the time being. Simply because the continuation of any part of this system, where people invested in it remain in control, means they will only allow and consider change which solidifies their position or will further advantage them in some way.
However, the collapse that these interests are trying to prevent with the very same tools they used to create it, cannot itself be controlled.
The people in charge, whether its elites, bankers or politicians, are in fact a very long way from having any sensible or rational ideas about how they can save their dying world order. That’s why we have wars, pipelines being blown up and ridiculous suggestions being made without a hint of irony that growth for the haves is the only way that hunger, poverty and shortages for the have-nots can be solved.
Not only those awake to the whole money lie, but the majority who now know that something has gone very wrong, will soon have the opportunity to choose a very different way.
This choice will come when this money-based system has broken and collapsed to the point that it stops working and its very functionality no longer makes any logical sense to people who can no longer be taken in by the con.
There is a lot of pain ahead that people should never have had to be exposed of. Indeed, it was never necessary that any of them should.
It has just been greed, selfishness and the absence of care and consideration for our fellow man that has brought us to the place that we are now, and that we must now face in the weeks, months and years ahead.
By continuing, choosing to continue, agreeing to, taking part in or supporting any of the establishment ideas and tribal thinking that currently exists and will be pumped out at us as the situation becomes critical, it will be made very easy for us to believe that in their hands, things can only get better – or at the very least, back to where and how we’ve always known them to be.
Yet the system is and has for a very long time been broken beyond repair.
The broken bricks and the carcass of this system and its governance can only be used effectively by those who wish for greed and the control of others to continue, by bolting everything together even more tightly – which will mean increasing amounts and very intrusive measures of control over what is left of ‘free life’.
Only those who believe they have something to gain by further enslaving people other than themselves will genuinely want to keep the money-based focus for everything going. And there are still a lot of them about.
The alternative is to build a new system and to create a new way of doing everything that is beneficial and fair to all. To quite literally raise a real phoenix from what doesn’t necessarily need to be ashes and build something much better and equitable for all, from the grassroots up.
Next week, I will publish my new book From Here to There Through Now. There I will go into much greater detail about what is really happening now, and how we can make the best of the situation, how we can survive and thrive as the transition takes place, and then step off and place the right building blocks working together in our communities as we recreate a people-centric world and remove all of the rot and disease that is rampant within the current system that our new world will replace.
