At her old school in Melbourne, my daughter used to come home and complain that she didn’t know the answers to a regular quiz the teacher held.
My wife and I were happy about it.
Well the quiz was on current events, based on what was reported in the news.
We don’t watch ‘news’ in our house. To be blunt, it’s a joke. So we were pleased that the kid had no idea about the questions, especially the idiotic ones about which royal was doing what.
When you tune out from the ‘news’ for a few weeks and then watch it for five minutes, you realise just how ridiculous it is.
News is no longer presented objectively. There is an agenda behind it. The agenda is about keeping you fearful and obedient. And anyone who questions the narrative is attacked from all angles.
Look at Craig Kelly. Shunned from his own party and booted from Facebook for daring to challenge the narrative.
And there is, of course, the disrupter-in-chief, Donald Trump. Trump outsmarted the elites for years. But they finally got him. As he raged against a dubious electoral process in many states, and encouraged his supporters to engage in peaceful protest, things went pear-shaped.
Facebook’s Upheld the Company’s Suspension of Donal Trump
The establishment pounced. They shut him down. And he’ll stay shut down according to this piece from Reuters:
‘Facebook’s oversight board on Wednesday upheld the company’s suspension of former US president Donald Trump in a much-awaited verdict that may signal how the company will treat rule-breaking world leaders in the future.
‘Facebook indefinitely blocked Trump’s access to his Facebook and Instagram accounts over concerns of further violent unrest following the January 6 storming of the US Capitol by supporters of the former president.’
Facebook’s ‘Oversight Board’ is made up of mostly left-wing academics. So it’s hardly a shock to see them keep the muzzle on ‘orange man bad’.
And Facebook is funding this board with a trust of US$130 million, so these guys are obviously getting a bit of coin to come up with their well-considered ‘independent’ opinions.
All this is just another attempt by the elites — those who think they know better than the plebs — to control the narrative and tell us what to think.
It’s not just Facebook. It’s mainstream media in general.
The obvious question is why is this so prevalent now?
Money is Still the Denominator
In my view, at its core is a rotten monetary system. In our modern materialistic society, money defines everything. Even if you shun material wealth, money is still the denominator for your labour.
Ever since 2008, governments and central banks have had to pump more ‘money’ into the system to keep it going.
Those closest to the government and central banks benefit immensely from these policies. Those minding their own business and getting on with their life are the last to see the flow of ‘new money’ entering the system.
And by the time they get it, that ‘new money’ doesn’t buy (in terms of assets) what it got the elites. No wonder there is a self-interested cabal of parasites around the world desperate to keep the game going. You do that by keeping the plebs fearful and busy. And you do THAT by controlling the flow of information.
Which is why I turned the TV off years ago.
I say it’s ‘new money’, but it’s really just more of the same old dirty, corrupt, fiat money that has been washing around the system since Nixon ‘temporarily’ suspended gold convertibility in 1971.
The ones that are really getting screwed by the old money system are the kids. Those who left university saddled with debt and needing to take on lots more to buy a house and start a family.
What’s more, the poor bastards have been brought up to believe the world owes them a favour.
If you think there isn’t going to be any blowback from this, you’re kidding yourself.
I say this because the blowback has already started. You just need to know where to look.
You see, while the world’s elites have been busy pumping money into the system and telling us how to live our lives, the next generation have been building a new peer-to-peer financial system.
What does that mean?
Well, in short, it is a financial system that does not need a trusted middleman to facilitate transactions. Computer code performs the role of trust.
Add to the fact that this new money cannot be created at will (think bitcoin with its limited supply) and you have a mortal threat to the old money powers.
What is happening under the surface is the biggest threat to finance since the Medicis dominated banking in the Middle Ages.
Remember old Rothschild’s famous maxim?
‘Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws!’
That’s been the bankers’ playbook for centuries. But this new money system is a massive threat to it. They might care who makes the laws now!
Which is why we’ve decided to launch a new service designed to chronicle its growth and profit from it along the way.
You can check out what it’s all about here. Please do. This is the biggest financial revolution in any of our lifetimes. You’d be mad not to get a ringside seat (for an insanely cheap ticket price).
