Today’s Economic Challenges Exacerbated by Ponzi Schemes

To begin with, we have the ongoing national debt Ponzi scheme being perpetrated on US taxpayers. The unsustainable national debt is the elephant in the room that the ruling class and the media refuse to talk about.

Under President George W Bush, the national debt doubled, from $5 to $10 trillion. President Barack Obama said, “hold my beer” doubling it again under his 8-year term from $10 to $20 trillion. Under President Donald Trump, the debt still crept upwards, but COVID pushed it into the stratosphere, with relief funds and paying Americans to not work. President Joe Biden has kept his foot on the accelerator and now with the national debt clock exceeding $31 trillion, there is with no sign of slowing, much less stopping.

The national debt Ponzi scheme is resulting in inflation and shortages in perpetuity.

The recent collapse of the FTX cryptocurrency crisis has earned its previous CEO Sam Bankman-Fried comparisons with Bernie Madoff, a Wall Street financier who ran the largest Ponzi scheme in history. The FTX now-former CEO had unintentionally described crypto staking or yield farming as essentially a Ponzi scheme.

Today, we have an ongoing “green” Ponzi scheme of net zero emissions by ridding the world of the fossil fuels whose manufactured products, fuels, pesticides, and fertilizers, caused the world to populate from 1 to 8 billion in less than 200 years, right AFTER the discovery of oil, in favor of wind and solar that CANNOT MANUFACTURE anything for society.

Like the national debt, the unsustainable reduction in products from fossil fuels that support the world is another elephant in the room that the ruling class and the media refuse to talk about.

Today, we have 8 billion on this planet that are surviving because of all the products, fuels, pesticides, and fertilizers MANUFACTURED from fossil fuels.

Today, the NEEDS of those 8 billion are increasing for everything that is manufactured from fossil fuels to stay alive. As more come out of poverty, the demand for those manufactured items is accelerating.

The green movement has no plan to replace all that is manufactured from fossil fuels, just a plan to only generate electricity from breezes and sunshine.

Interesting, everything that needs electricity is made with the oil derivatives manufactured from crude oil, including all the parts of wind turbines, solar panels, and EV vehicles. In an all-electric world, there will be nothing to power without oil!

Like the national debt Ponzi, the shortages of the products, fuels, pesticides, and fertilizers MANUFACTURED from fossil fuels will also contribute to shortages and further inflation in perpetuity.

Thus, we may get to the net-zero emissions society that we had in the 1800’s when there were no coal-fired power plants, no natural gas power plants, and no crude oil to be manufactured at refineries into usable products, but with a few billion less people on this planet that will die from starvation, diseases, and weather-related fatalities.

A Criminal Charge for Shouting

A man trapped in a house fire shouted CROWDED THEATER and was arrested by police after he was treated for injuries at a local hospital.

Local prosecutor Ham Fester acknowledged the arrest and stated the charge was incitement.

When questioned by reporters, Fester said, “It doesn’t matter whether you shout fire in a crowded theater or shout crowded theater in a fire. They’re equal. It’s an equation. Both sides of equation add up to the same thing.”

Coming out of a meeting with the President, US Attorney General Garland was asked about the case.

Torsades de Pointes and Cardiac Arrest after COVID-19 Vaccination

By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH

Torsades de pointes (French for “twisting of the points”) is one of several types of life-threatening heart rhythm disturbances than can cause cardiac arrest. When case reports capture this rhythm in a fortunate survivor of a cardiac arrest it is noteworthy particularly as our CDC VAERS system indicates 16,155 Americans through December 23, 2022, have died within a few days of taking of the COVID-19 vaccines. Drs Abrich and Olshansky reported a 65-year old woman with hypertension, a left bundle branch block with a prolonged QT interval, and a mildly reduced left ventricular ejection fraction after at two dose series of the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA vaccine. She came to specialty evaluation because she completely passed out while sitting. An implantable loop recorder was inserted in the chest to monitor the rhythm and then five months later she took a booster and 12 hours later went into full blown cardiac arrest. She required prolonged CPR and 14 shocks of the heart to be revived. There was no evidence of myocarditis. She had a rocky hospital course and was discharged to an inpatient rehabilitation facility.

The lessons learned from this case are: 1) syncope (passing out) after vaccination can indicate a serious arrhythmia, 2) when there are abnormal heart tests (ECG and echocardiography) after two shots, boosters are ill-advised and can be fatal, 3) COVID-19 vaccination can cause a primary cardiac arrest without myocarditis and may explain cases of “died suddenly” when the autopsy does not reveal and obvious known vaccine injury (myocarditis, blood clot, VITT, etc).

You Defeat The Great Reset, Then What? Pt. 2


In part 1 I spoke about a growing desire for solutions to the bigger challenges in our world. Millions are seeing that we have a world where powerful people can influence the direction our society heads whether the citizenry agrees with it or not.

Questions that arise from some are, “How to we get our power back?” and “What are the solutions to the technocratic and transhumanistic worldview of The Great Reset that’s barrelling forward?”

I also laid out a thesis of sorts. An ecology of ideas that seem to be at play in how we evolve as individuals and societies. Breaking The Illusion, Awakening Neutrality (Uncertainty), Deprogramming Limits, and Living Aligned. You can review these in detail once more here, if you like.

My feeling is that if we engage each of these ideas in our journey of looking for solutions, we will begin to approach this conundrum from a much more clear, productive, and fulfilling place – a place that isn’t stuck in the worldview of today. A worldview often riddled with ideology, quick judgements, and a lack of depth.

I also talked about how many of us are at different stages of engagement within the four concepts I laid out. I believe right now that the majority of people who are asking for solutions are engaging with Breaking The Illusion to some extent.

That is to say that people are learning about the layers of corruption that exist in our society. We’re realizing that we are seeing the destruction of anything from our freedoms to health to waterways and ecosystems as a result of how our society operates.

When we only engage the concept of Breaking the Illusion, and leave the other concepts out, one thing that can happen is we start to believe the problem we have is the ‘evil’ or ‘bad’ people in power. That if only we could jail “the psychopaths in power” all will be OK. The intention of this essay is to mostly speak to people who see things this way.

Let’s do a thought experiment to look more deeply at why I believe this is a limited frame of seeing “our problems.”

A Thought Experiment: You Defeat The Great Reset…

Imagine for a moment that undeniable truth is permeated to the masses about unforgivable levels of government corruption. COVID cover ups by Prime Ministers and Presidents are revealed, and secret plans to take freedoms from the masses at any cost are revealed. Insert whatever else you want revealed about corruption too.

Now imagine all the Great Reset founders and elitists responsible for these things are put in jail and can’t affect society anymore. Characters like Klaus Schwab, Anthony Fauci, and Justin Trudeau, for example, are in jail for ‘what they’ve done.’

Before we say “it’d be a good start,” really take it in: ‘Their plans’ have been defeated. Do you have a sense of what you would want our world to look like if the elitist controllers were actually removed from power? Have you thought about what would practically happen next or change within our society?

I’ve done this type of thought experiment with many people over the last 15 years. Believe it or not, the vast majority have never thought this far ahead. It’s easy to talk about the ‘bad’ people, and it’s easy to call for their removal from power, but it’s difficult to truly think of what to do next or what would even happen next.

We have vastly interconnected economic systems, energy systems, and food systems – what would happen to them? Would the world just hum along once they’re gone and ‘good people’ would just take over? How long would it take before those people become corrupt? Have we wondered if the systems we have today, like our economic system for example, is actually a system of oppression by design, and that it doesn’t matter if ‘good’ people or ‘bad’ people run it, they will always produce manmade scarcity and suffering?

To be clear, I’m not suggesting the answer is to put all these people in jail – only to think about what to do next. I’m making the point that some believe the problems we have today are just a small group of people when in reality we have to acknowledge things like the design of our current societal systems. Societal systems born out of a particular worldview, one that says we are separate, meant to compete against each other, and that we are here to dominate nature. Wouldn’t this mindset only flesh out the same problem once again?

It is here where I am tempted to dive into a deep exploration of what I believe to be one of the primary causes of the type of world we see today: our consciousness and collective worldview. I’ve done this deep dive in previous pieces like this one: A New Worldview Is Emerging That Can Change Our Entire Perspective On Reality.

For now, let’s put on the table the idea that the story of our current world suggests that we are separate from one another and just trying to survive. That we are violent, prone to destroying one another, and that our nature is to dominate one another and nature. I believe this overarching worldview is seen in the way we design our societies, and it’s just a learned behavior.

I believe that if we recognized the interconnectedness that exists between us and nature, and tapped truly into the love we have for each other that exists far beyond our every day thoughts, we’d likely create a better society right away. Once again, read this piece for deeper insight into this idea.

Culturally, we are so far away from embracing that interconnectedness en masse. I feel for now it’s more useful to explore the space in between embracing that new state of consciousness and the way our world is today. How do we go from here to there? What do we do while this new worldview is taking its time to emerge within us? How can we take some useful steps now? Steps that can speak to those that might not even believe a new world is possible? Remember, we are a collective, it matters what each of us holds as a possibility, and thus it matters that we communicate with one another about the world we believe is possible.

So let’s turn our attention to a more useful frame than “put the bad people in jail,” and let’s stretch our minds to consider the scale of the solutions we must be talking about.

Good Solutions Come From Well Defined Problems

For almost two decades I have believed that we are in the midst of a great consciousness shift in our society (this is the part where we talk about oneness and the birthing of a new story of who we are and how we relate to one another.) One that will help reshape the way we see our societal design and what we believe is possible. This also means gaining a clearer and more holistic picture on what our current challenges actually are in the short term.

Good solutions come from well defined problems. I feel that for the most part humanity has not done a good job of defining problems we face. If it isn’t clear, the idea that “the bad people need to be jailed to solve everything ” is a poorly defined problem. That “removing the Republicans in favor of the Democrats” is a poorly defined problem. The dualistic nature in which we see our world, without an inquiry into human condition, systems, and consciousness, is why we’re failing to clearly define our problems.

When we have a limited or narrow way of viewing life, “these politicians are socialist crazies, and let’s stop them” are the solutions we come up with… and well.. they suck lol.

If we want to go from Breaking The Illusion and begin to engage Awakening Neutrality (welcoming uncertainty), we will need to start asking deeper questions and step out of simplistic ideologies. This is to say, in order to resist The Great Reset and create a better world in its place, we’ll need to think about what type of world we want to create in its place. In order to do that, we need to steer clear of getting caught up in limiting our thinking and feeling of what our problems are. We need to think a bit more metaphysical.

Here are a few thoughts to consider:

1. In order to feel out solutions we need to realize there is a problem. (Done. Most of us see this, check.)

2. In order to design good solutions we need to do a good job of defining exactly what those problems are on multiple players. People, needs, societal design, consciousness etc. (We aren’t digging deep enough, no check on this.)

3. In order to define problems clearly we have to communicate and engage collective intelligence. Which is to say we need to hear from each other and what each others needs are. We will have to be humble, introspective, and be able to make sense of our world well. We’ll need to discuss this all respectively. (No check on this one. But momentum is building because people are tired of hating each other.)

4. Of course underlying all this, and perhaps the most important part, is we have to be willing to truly question what we believe about ourselves, the nature of our reality, and what we believe is possible within our world. A level of curiosity that our current environment often beats out of us. (We love being cynical about what is truly possible because we fear being disappointed. We have to work this out. No check on this one.)

To me, all of these pieces have to be engaged if we wish to make an earnest effort at answering the question our readers brought forth initially. It may sound like a lot, but it truly isn’t. We are in this together, and most of it is just about showing up to the table with curiosity and uncertainty, seeking to understand more about what is going on.

Let’s dig in.

The Realization of How Big Solutions Need To Be

Interestingly, the world’s financial elite recognize just how much our current game (societal systems) is over. They have been seeding a plan called The Great Reset.

The Great Reset represents a moment where powerful individuals are creating conversation around this obvious need for change that so many sense. In reading The Fourth Industrial Revolution by Klaus Schwab, one of the founders of The Great Reset, you get the idea very quickly that all the right ‘key words’ are being used to draw people in.

The Great Reset proposes things like creating an egalitarian world where poverty is erased and meaning is brought back to life. We work together to live from the heart, mind and soul in order to get along and feel fulfilled. Automation and technology are used ethically, in a way where we don’t lose sight of what it means to be human but instead allow the technology to help us thrive.

Reading the book you quickly realize that many of the very ideas you and I have to make the world better are talked about, or at least those are the ideas I’ve often had.

The problem is, I don’t trust Klaus Schwab, powerful financial elites, or governments to bring this about. Why? Because they have a horrible track record and I don’t believe they are actually trying to ‘do the right thing.’ Maybe I’m wrong, but a big part of me doesn’t trust them.

Many others sense what I feel too – The Great Reset can’t be trusted because the same people and mindsets that have us where we are today are the same ones trying to create ‘the solution.’

This solution, The Great Reset, is barreling forward at an intensely fast pace: more surveillance, more control, central bank digital currencies, carbon taxes, AI, brain implants, and a loss of freedom. People are worried and fearful of where we are headed and want to do something ASAP. You also notice that many of the solutions the Great Reset calls for some from this controlling, authoritarian, and bleak worldview that permeates our current reality. It’s void of sacredness.

If we wish to resist this plan in the short term and the long term, we’ll need to start thinking and talking about the world we want to create, and prepare ourselves to be able to hold the possibility of that world in our hearts, minds and bodies. We’ll need to be able to communicate these ideas to others, and do so intelligently and respectively – even if we only hold a small piece to the puzzle.

Facing Reality With Heart & Courage

Like it or not, our societies are vast and interconnected. A huge amount of planning and energy goes into how our world functions everyday. Stewardship of our societies is needed – even if we wholesale changed our system to be more egalitarian.

With that said, who would steward this new world? How would we trust each other? If there is no trust in institutions and we want to resist or fight The Great Reset, what world do we want instead? Or maybe many just want to hold onto the existing one?

I know, I know, “create a local community with friends. Homestead and exit the system” right? That may work for you, and I do believe it is part of the solution in part, but what about the billions of people who cannot afford to do that? This is a big question that is often avoided in conversation around ‘ending corruption’ and ‘creating a better world.’

I have put thousands of hours over the last 15 years into exploring these questions. Time and time again the problem is most people don’t want to talk about real, large scale solutions because it’s ‘too big’ to wrap our heads around – and I get that. But without embracing discussion of what we’d do next, we’re left complaining about something endlessly or sticking with statements like “everyone just needs to be a good person and that’s what’s most important.” It’s a nice sentiment, but it fails to address holistic reality.

It’s easy and cheap to talk about putting ‘the elites’ behind bars,’ but what next? The nature and design of our current society and worldview is driven by individual gain, corporate money, and unelected influence, how long before it produces the next corrupt leader?

Without answering the question of ‘what we’d do next,’ I often wonder whether we have the ability to ever truly address the problems that we face now. Why? Because I feel there is an underlying collective intelligence that exists, perhaps deep within us even, that knows that the type of change people want cannot come out until we have the capacity to actually move through transitioning into solutions and systems that would work if these elite individuals were taken away.

Do we have the emotional and intellectual maturity to come together as people and find ways to steward massive societies that currently exist on the planet? Do we have the willingness to trust and connect in meaningful ways? Or would this be a process done with guns drawn?

I put an entire 7 episode series together for my podcast called Collective Evolution where I try to have a conversation around an ecology of questions/potential solutions that go along with this evolution. If you’re thinking of exploring the meta crisis’ behind our existing systems and what solutions might drive us forward, I highly encourage you to check out episodes 1 – 7. You can start here.

In part 3 of this essay, I will focus on some practical steps we can take to begin having this discussion of “what we do next” and “what could our world look like?” This involves communication, exploring ideas, re-focusing some of our attention, and personally developing ourselves to hold the possibility of this new world in the short and long term.

We are the creators of a new world, but we have to start acting like it.

Major food company in France reduces production by 80 PERCENT: Energy costs just too high to stay in business

Image: Major food company in France reduces production by 80 PERCENT: Energy costs just too high to stay in business

(Natural News) Half of the food production plants owned and operated by Cofigeo, a large French food conglomerate, have shut down as the company says its energy costs are just too high to stay in full operation.

Four of Cofigeo’s eight food production plants are now closed, reports indicate – these amounting to 80 percent of the company’s total production capacity. This means that Cofigeo will only be producing 20 percent of its normal amount of food for the foreseeable future.

Cofigeo owns several other major French food brands including William Saurin, Garbit and Raynal, and Roquelaure. (Related: Back in the fall, French glass maker Duralex halted all operations because it can no longer afford to pay for overpriced energy.)

With this 80 percent scale-down in operations at Cofigeo comes a 66 percent reduction in the company’s workforce. We are told that 800 of Cofigeo’s 1,200 workers are affected by this partial closure of the company’s production facilities.

An announcement was made about all this on December 6 of last year, and it just came into effect on January 2. Cofigeo plants in Capdenac, Pouilly-sur-Serre, Camaret-sur-Aigues, and Lagny have all since shuttered, according to French news outlet Le Figaro.

“This decision aims to cope with the spectacular increase in its energy costs (gas and electricity necessary for cooking and sterilizing cooked dishes and recipes), which will be multiplied by 10 from the beginning of the year,” the company announced in a statement this week.

“Significant” amount of food spoilage expected as France enters dark winter marked by power cuts and blackouts

According to Cofigeo president Mathieu Thomazeau, energy costs are skyrocketing to such a high degree in France that it is simply no longer possible to do business as usual.


“It will go overnight from four million to 40 million euros,” he told the media.

This is fast becoming a problem across many sectors of the French economy as energy prices continue to skyrocket. Not just producers but also retailers are being affected by it, with Perifem, a federation of French supermarket chains, announcing at the end of 2022 that expected power cuts and blackouts this dark winter threaten to cause widespread food spoilage.

Many supermarkets lack the ability or even just the time to prepare for these outages, which government officials initially downplayed as “unlikely” before later admitting that there will probably not be enough power available to keep the lights on in France in the coming months.

“We have never experienced this situation … stores are very poorly equipped today with generators,” said Perifem general delegate Franck Charton about the dire situation his country faces.

“We will not throw away frozen products that have for the most part more thermal inertia. On the other hand, for fresh products that do not last two hours, there will indeed be a significant waste.”

Then there are the ongoing “problems” and “issues” with France’s nuclear power generation fleet, which is already halfway out of operation due to “routine maintenance.” More nuclear power plants in recent days are having added issues, which could result in government officials having to ration what little energy remains.

After January 15, warned Emmanuelle Wargon, France’s Energy Regulation Commission president, France could be in dire straits at the first sign of a cold snap – current weather conditions are unseasonably warm, we are told, which has given France a temporary reprieve from what is soon to come.

Production of fertilizer, an energy-intensive process necessary to grow food, is also threatened by the ongoing energy inflation situation. Will there be enough food to go around once all is said and done here?
