Hi all, hope you are all keeping well? Sorry it’s been a while since my last post, iv not really had anything on mind to share. The only thing that has really been pressing upon me is the state of the world, as it is. It is rather depressing. We are all feeling the hurt of inflation, brought about by the reaction to Covid by governments, the near limitless printing of money and the supposed “green” policies such as net zero and the squeezing of farmers around nitrogen. It’s all rather a big mess, yet the media and governments would have you believe its because of the war in Ukraine. Rather than admit it is them that are responsible for the mess we are in, cutting our nose off to spite ourselves. It is the verry anti west sentiment that is sweeping the west ironically, coupled together with a very anti human sentiment. We are I think in midst of self-driven collapse. Its all rather terrifying, not to mention the fact that we are in a cold war once more with NATO and Russa staring down the nuclear barrel at each other. Too, with China placing Taiwan in its cross hairs, a new world war its bubbling underneath the surface. Bleak.
These are things pressing on my mind, I am helpless do anything about it. I keep saying to myself why don’t the governments just deflate the currency by taking money out of the system and reducing the amount of loans given, thereby putting value back in people’s pockets. I have written to my government about this before, but I am an insignificant man—why would they listen to me. (I have written about the topic of deflation and inflation before in much more detail.) Too I realise that the governments that we elect aren’t in control anymore, they are beholden to international faceless conglomerates controlling narratives, such as the IMF. The very people that say in the future you will own nothing and be happy. Too the Club of Rome bushing anti human commitments that will be disastrous. These originations are pushing policy to reform the social and economic landscape of the west that is so destructive it will rip away liberty and rights on scale the Nazis and Soviet Union could only dream about. Already we are seeing the erosion of free speech, civil liberties and an incise in government surveillance of its citizens. I sit and think to myself why are we going backwords? Back to stamens like “the personal is political”.
I think to myself, why is a peace treaty with Russa such a no go, what happened to give peace a chance? I find my Philosophies being torn up and thrown away as unpopular, crushed by the tyranny of popular opinion. I find myself staying silent in conversations around such topics for fear of being ostracized. I feel lost once more, knowing there is nothing I can do or say to shape events in way that maximize human liberty, ingenuity, and the potential for peace. I’m exiled to my blog under a pseudonym, a blog that is in the grand scheme of things pathetic in its form and articulation. I’m woefully ill equipped.
I know I am not the only one in the world that feels this way, that gives me some comfort. Yet fills me more with an empathy for such people, and again a feeling of being helpless to do anything for them. I can only hope that if such people see this blog they fell less alone, less isolated.
It is important now more than ever to safeguard one’s health and one’s mental health, to become fit and ready for what is to come. Rady the face the psychological and physical challenges such changes to the social and economic landscape will bring.
Stay well all and thank you for reading my ramblings. As always please comment and let me know your thoughts. These are just my thoughts on such things and should be read as such.
