Sometimes I feel quite fearful about what is going on the world. I also often feel quite alone with the chilling fear of what seems to be happening and that people around me are either oblivious to or even support.
Has anyone noticed that US inflation is heading up and fast? Almost 6% and increasing. It’s not just in the US but certainly, the fact that the Government has printed 40% of all dollars ever in the last 12-months to me threatens that inflation is set to explode.
In recent days, the non-elected head of a Government created quango – the CDC- usurped her position, mandate and authority. The Supreme Court ruled her actions unconstitutional. The Biden administration basically announced it would ignore the Supreme Court. The GOP sat on its thumbs and did nothing. The US Government now acts unlawfully and no one challenges it. What’s next – rewriting the constitution? Certainly, thats what happened in 1948 in Czechoslovakia to usher in a totalitarian regime.
And in the same time frame, a hack of a ‘scientist’ published a paper suggesting that those who attack science and scientists (like Dr. Fauci) should be charged with hate speech! The paper is interesting to read as he argues for the very imposition of totalitarianism and ending of free speech he suggests he is defending. But this is how the politicisation of science and the scientific method has made things – up is down and right is left. We are bombarded with narratives not science on everything from COVID to climate – all of it challengeable as it should be according to the method of science.
The imposition of COVID passports to do anything creating two groups in society. How long before the minority group is told it must identify it (with gold stars perhaps?) and there are already calls for green zones where the unvaxxed should live in isolation…. might those areas have signs above them offering opinions about the value of work?
Yet in countries like the US, UK, Netherlands and Australia, where these trends appear to be the worst, there is no opposition and whatever the party in charge, they pursue the same agenda supported by a cowed media now under threat of jail time for publishing stories embarrassing to the Government. When there is no opposition and the narrative from all parties is the same how is there democracy at work?
One last item, the climate push is on full scale whatever the consequences. Lithium is the metal needed for batteries and if by 2030 30% of all vehicles are to be EVs we will need some 2.5m tons of the stuff. Given that global production was 85,000 tons in 2018 and that not much has changed, a 1m ton shortfall is projected. No one seems to care but can you imagine what that will do to the price of Lithium? And to the price of the EV? I imagine that most will not be able to afford one. The future is you will have nothing and be happy. I can see how we will have nothing – I just can’t yet figure out how we will be happy about it?
It’s like reading 1984. Chilling.
