Realist, not conformist analysis of the latest financial, business and political news

You’ll Never Find Him In Those Canyons

The passing of Sir Sean Connery has reminded me of one of his films.

In The Hunt For Red October, a sonar operator happens upon the tell-tale underwater signature of a new Russian submarine, and manages to listen in to it on four separate occasions before losing it in the marinescape.

He doggedly tries to plot the submarine’s course by drawing a straight line through the four sonar signal locations, and establishes its likely destination. His captain then guides the boat there and simply……………waits.

Let’s do the same.

Watching our governments engineer this crisis and then manufacture our consent for medical tyranny with an escalating series of authoritarian measures may be like being a frog in water slowly being brought to a the boil, but each signal we get enables us to draw an increasingly-accurate line and look ahead to the destination they have planned.

Where are they taking us?

The answer I would suggest is global governance.

It’s been clear for many years that there are three types of people in the world when it comes to governance.

  1. Those who think national governance is doing a great job, and we should stick with it.
  2. Those who think national governance is failing because the tools are too weak, and we should try supranational or global governance.
  3. Those who think national governance is failing because the tools are too strong, and we should try liberty, freedom and localism.

And it’s clear that Group 2 are winning their way – we are trembling on the brink of global governance.

Gordon Brown is openly asking for it.

But how to manufacture consent for it?

Well, Mencken knew. He said that “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

COVID may not be imaginary, but the scope and scale of the threat from it certainly is.

Despite the mounting evidence of how feeble it is, a co-ordinated and aggressive effort to lock down all our economies is still underway – it’s probable that many businesses will not recover from the damage already done, let alone the damage about to be done again. And when some people react badly, and they will, the pretext will be established to lock down even harder (and blame “Covidiots”)

Our national governments are being pressured by globalist actors and characterised as unable to cope with either the economic or social consequences of this crisis.

So here we sit at Thor’s Twins, looking back down the long straight line being travelled by our globalists since they got the ball rolling with their Event 201 war games right before COVID appeared and what do we see?

An inexorable march towards medical tyranny, social disorder, economic catastrophe and eventually half of society begging the architects of this manufactured crisis to resolve it.

Like calling the arsonist to come and put out your house fire.

And as these cultural arsonists close in on their goal, their behaviour will become more predictable – we should be able to forecast their conduct more and more precisely.

  • More regional or national lockdowns, despite a lack of evidence they are needed.
  • A baffling lack of sensible precautions (like when they failed to stop people travelling from China, or their disregard for care homes).
  • The mocking, censoring or demonisation of anyone straying from their narrative or preparing for the impending disaster
  • increasingly-tyrannical controls on movement, and behaviour,
  • lots of sad talk about how far away a vaccine is, or how unlikely it is that there will be enough to go round (nothing creates panicky demand like a shortage)
  • Eventually, a miraculous vaccine breakthrough, as long as you are wiling to accept the ID cards that will be needed to keep track of the immunised.
  • And then finally the constraints on the lives of those who hold out, the demonisation (even by your friends and family) of those that “put us all at risk”, while the government stands by sadly shaking its head and letting peer pressure and its hideous strength do their terrible work.

Tyrannical governments of the past have all behaved in this manner – ID cards are a fond tactic of them all, and the UK government has tried repeatedly to impose them. It has failed every time.

Now it has the excuse that it needs, as does every nation in the world.

So look back down the line – watch as our national governments continue to fumble around under pressure and provide an ever-more compelling case for some kind of global response in 2021 – global governance, ID cards, and a global currency. Recognise that this is where they are taking us.

And then act, speak, invest and prepare accordingly.

We had near-global government up until the 1940s/1950s, upheld by the expenditure of lots of guns and the blood of fuzzy-wuzzies. I seem to recall the governed spent a lot of blood throwing it off.

But the governors were, dare I mention the word, white.

My other thought is: who do they expect to be doing this global governing? If they are expecting a democratic system, that means it will be China. What? You expect 66 million to outvote 1.4 billion?

Sorry jgh but you’re disenfranchised. You’re the wrong skin colour, gender and age.

Ah yes, Mencken. He’s the guy who wrote, “Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.” Which is uncomfortably close to, “Free marketeering is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.”

Will enough people notice fast enough to make a difference?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
