Helpful Push

 Pondering Causality,

  Does a failed-narrative fail without a helpful push?  Just askin'...

  The control-narrative promulgated in our world is something like "COVID will kill worthy-vaccinated and unworthy-doubters unless everybody gets vaccinated frequently forever and locks down whenever we say it's necessary". 
This is different from the original advertising "Vaccines Save!", of course.
This narrative has no limit to how harsh it can become, when a critical mass of people comply with it, no limit at all. See "HISTORY", please.

  We have some interesting tribal characteristics, which don't always get studied, and which are different in nature from our individual characteristics, which get studied a lot, all the time.  Carl Jung and Hannah Arendt did have the full-immersion opportunity to study Mass-Psychosis, which is also called "Mass Formation" in the case of a scared and anxious group of people being made to focus all of their fears and anxieties upon one specified threat, and one way to fight that threat, in order to prevail and survive.  
Mass Psychosis is well explained in this 20 minute illustrated video, which I have posted before. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09maaUaRT4M

  Survival of a human group primarily depends upon the group working together in concert, which is a thing we do well. It seems that we do even better when we correctly understand the problem, and work together with a rational plan to overcome the adversity, but that seems to be optional for group cohesion. 
  The predominant form of "reality testing" employed by humans is to ask those around you what they think. That seems to illustrate that group cohesion is a more important trait to inherit than brilliant intellectual analysis.  
  Brilliant analysis, or even a pretty good assessment of facts and mechanisms at play, give a tremendous advantage to a cohesive group, working from that template, over a cohesive group working with "bad facts".

  Our "owners" usually have "better facts", information-asymmetry, because they can hire good analysts. When the interests of the owners and the common people diverge greatly, the condition of "Class War" arises. Class War recurs in our history, but the winners write history, so it is often presented in a way which just makes it look weird and mysterious. 
"Why did people do that back then? They were crazy back then."

  The difficulty for the "owners", the ruling elites, is that they have to get "half of the people to kill the other half of the people" in order to maintain their position of control. This is always horribly bad for both halves of the people, but it is repeatedly accomplished through "Mass Formation". 
  It goes bad for the elites a lot of the time, too. They are quite happy to stab each other in the backs, whenever they can safely do so. Many times, when there is "blood in the streets", a group of elites will lose command of the dominant narrative.

  The current dominant narrative is really weak, and has faded from being merely incorrect, to clearly the opposite, in terms of facts.
   mRNA vaccines, in particular, had a lot of deaths and side effects, which were glossed over, because they "saved lives" (more often than not, for 2-3 months or so), but it appears that they actually drive coronavirus infections and hospitalizations higher after 6 months, and they seem to about double the "excess deaths" in a cohort which receives them. 
  I have been covering those trends, and they are well covered here at The Automatic Earth, "It's Time To Dump Pfizer".   https://www.theautomaticearth.com/2021/11/its-time-to-dump-pfizer/

  Dominant narratives are easier to break at some times than at others. 
I keep coming back to "We Are Winning The War In Vietnam", which was the instructive narrative failure of my childhood and teen years. 
  Dad was over there for a year, a US Marine, and we lived on bases and in military towns, for the most part. I was a kid who paid attention and thought for himself ("problem child"). The Tet Offensive of early 1968 really rubbed people's faces in the ugliness of not-winning. 
  Walter Cronkite broke ranks and began gently considering that body count "winning" might never lead to "victory" as we had thought of it in WW-1 and WW-2. 
  The TV news anchors cannot do that again, but the internet has not yet been fully brought under control at the small-blog and email level.

  What is organically coalescing is a more factual narrative among those who reject the dominant narrative. there are 2 levels. 
  The more accessible level is that crony-capitalist corruption has led to the situation where Pfizer got a lead, kept the lead by getting captured government regulators to suppress any solution other than "vaccines", and this has continued, even as "vaccines" are now seen to become counterproductive to survival after 6 months of time. 
  The second level, which is not very inconsistent, posits that this is at least partially intentional, if not originally, then as an adaptation to the lab leak spreading a weaponized viral pathogen uncontrollably in our highly connected world.

  We are not starving. We are not in as bad an economy as we were in the late 1970s and early 1980s. I think that's about to happen, and for some similar reasons. Faith-based-money has been debauched, and the default is under way, as Nixon had to default on the gold standard when the Vietnam War drained America's vast treasure chest. America reached peak oil that same year of 1971. Consequences were felt for a dozen years after that. Now, the global finance markets and all national currencies are debauched, and the whole world has been wringing out more oil from expensive reserves, paid for with faith-based "investment" money.
  We can again expect a failure of currency and a big increase in the price of oil, but globally, not just nationally. Global elites see this, appear to have gotten sold a narrative plot at Event 201 in October 2019, and are trying to stick with it. 
  I think the "Vaccines Save, Do As We Say" narrative is already failing in some places. It's a Swiss Cheese. It's hard for me to judge, because I don't get all of the actual facts about things. 
  The elites really don't have clear information either, not right now. They are sheltered from bad news from the information battlefields. We who are firm and resolute with the more factual narrative are not losing ground. They are also widely separated in the world, and need to look to their personal and regional and national survival first. They know not to trust each other, but not to open themselves to attack by an intact alliance of other elites. That can collapse fast.

  We can't see how many of us there are, but we can see the "better facts" and firmness of resolution within our smaller groups of socialization. We need to prevail in this narrative contest. This is our historical window of opportunity. Yes, for winning we will get a period like the decade from 1973 to 1983, likely worse, since energy-based industrial economy will be in terminal decline. We will have to reconsider every single aspect of how we spend our time and energy. We will need to do this cooperatively and adaptively. When we get together on this realistic narrative track, we should be able to start solving the real problems in our real lives, and not killing each other for the failing paradigm of the parasitic and wasteful elite owners. 
They should learn to ride bikes and grow vegetables, too. It will be good for them.

  Look for every opportunity to demonstrate the truth and to demonstrate the ridiculousness of narrative falsehoods, Brothers and Sisters!

"Joe Biden": 
“I expect the new normal to be, everyone ends up getting vaccinated and the booster shot, so we reduce the number of people who aren’t protected to such a low degree that we’re not seeing the spread of these viruses,” he told reporters.​   [Not how these "vaccines" work, is it?]
People who are fully vaccinated “can celebrate the holidays much more safely than where we were last year,” Biden said, adding 
“That’s a blessing none of us should take for granted.”
He also urged Americans to “wear your masks when you’re indoors in public settings around other people to protect you, to protect those around you.”

​Thanks for this, Dennis:
And another federal court rules against another Biden vaccine mandate - this time for health-care workers​ 
“Plaintiffs are likely to succeed in establishing that the CMS vaccine mandate is arbitrary and capricious.”

​We are prone to think of any word as a "thing". Our minds find that convenient. Some "things" are actually complex and changing internally. We should think of them differently than a brick. The Pfizer mRNA vaccines are like that. Look at the graph and analysis of Pfizer vaccine batches.
Pfizer Systematic Deployment in the USA, Craig Paardekooper
  If the separate companies were deploying high toxicity batches systematically, then the patterns of deployment could be confused and clouded by mixing data for all of the companies. - So, instead of combining all of the VAERS data for Moderna, and for Pfizer, I decided to separate them out. - ​​Here is the complete output for Pfizer only - showing adverse reactions for each sequential batch. - Pfizer deployed about 9500 batches to the USA...  
​  ​If the production of toxic batches was an accident, we would expect their temporal appearance to be random and more scattered. The production of large numbers of toxic batches in close temporal proximity to one another shows that such "accidents" are repeated dozens of times, sequentially ! - 
​  ​In addition to this, these clusters of toxic batches are separated by clear periods of harmless batches - then the sudden appearance of another cluster. - 
​  ​The toxic batches are also clustered into a narrow range of toxicity, rather than having a random spread of toxicity - which is odd if these batches were accidents. - ​  ​Finally, the toxicity of these clusters decreases in steps, linearly over time - again, not what we would expect from the accidental production of toxic batches. - These batches may be Hot Lots by design.  

​Steve Kirsch:  
45% of deaths after COVID vaccination happen in the first 2 weeks
It's 59% at 4 weeks and 63% at 5 weeks.

​Austria, not Australia: ​
People repeatedly snubbing Covid-19 vaccination summons in Austria after immunization becomes compulsory there might face fines of up to $8,100 or several weeks behind bars, according to a draft that was leaked to the media.
The UK is suddenly moving to every 3 month COVID booster shots. Use what doesn't work more and more often!

Vaccines watchdog advises speeding up of vaccination scheme to tackle new coronavirus variant

  There were 2 variables at play here, which is not good study design. The vitamin-D treatment group also had comorbidities, things like diabetes and heart disease. They still did twice as well as the low vitamin-D group without comorbidities, in terms of hospitalizations and deaths. 
The level of treatment was not to "optimal" but to "barely normal". 
This looks like a study designed to fail or be unimpressive, which turned out to be impressive , anyway.
Rapid and Effective Vitamin D Supplementation May Present Better Clinical Outcomes in COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) Patients...​ 
Results: Our treatment protocol increased the serum 25OHD levels significantly to above 30 ng/mL within two weeks. COVID-19 cases (no comorbidities, no vitamin D treatment, 25OHD <30 ng/mL) had 1.9-fold increased risk of having hospitalization longer than 8 days compared with the cases with comorbidities and vitamin D treatment. Having vitamin D treatment decreased the mortality rate by 2.14 times.
Conclusions: Vitamin D treatment shortened hospital stay and decreased mortality in COVID-19 cases, even in the existence of comorbidities. 
Vitamin D supplementation is effective on various target parameters; therefore, it is essential for COVID-19 treatment.

Omicron Is "Extremely Mild" Says Doctor Who First Discovered Strain

There is also no evidence that absence of vaccination will prevent severe disease from Omicron. 
There is no apparent evidence that Omicron causes severe disease. Quite the contrary.
COVID vaccination also protects very well from severe disease caused by thinking about baseball. 
(At least there's no "evidence" to the contrary.)

"SCIENCE" becomes momma's apron for Toddler Fauci, who cannot mount any rational arguments.
He has "bad facts" like lying to congress about not funding gain-of-function research, and natural immunity being much better than vaccine-immunity.. 
He calls names. Senators Ron Paul and Ted Cruz (ugh!) are being mean and anti-science, which is very dangerous. Fauci is THE SCIENCE. 
Nothing factual does he present.

Twitter was initially sold as peer-to-peer free-speech. Now bad ideas will be banned, and pictures of riots, and people committing crimes against other people and/or property. Tony "the science" Fauci is still a public figure, but there is bound to be room to explore the evolution of this not-first-amendment-bound "private platform" under the new manager.

This is the page comparison I mentioned in the last blog post. Ilargi, the blogger at The Automatic Earth first accessed the version that included the B.1.1.529 mention, dated 7/12/21, and when he returned to the site, that had been deleted. The official story is that it was just "updated", which he caught, then un-updated.
(There are more and more hints that this viral strain may have been in circulation globally for months, already. 
There is such a range of presentation of COVID from minimal symptoms to severe illness and death.)

A South African COVID variant was described last March, which did not get as much global traction as expected, but was different enough that it evaded antibodies in the serum of people who had recovered from a prior strain.

Omicron Is Not Nu


  It's awkward that I don't have a link for this news factoid, but the link just got revised away. 
The World Economic Forum had a story with the detail that what is now designated B(otswna).1.1.529 was sequenced already somewhere in July, just not designated yet. The link was rapidly changed while today's post at The Automatic Earth blog was being composed. 
It was apparently revised away, to avoid contaminating the narrative that B.1.1.529 is "Brand New and Aggressive!"

  Over the course of this year a lot of computer biomolecular modeling of viral proteins and human cellular receptors and enzymes has been done. It is fairly predictive, if not completely perfect. Pharmacology magnates like Pfizer have done and paid for a lot of this modeling. They are able to "predict" what mutations will escape the antibodies created by January 2020 (S)pike-protein vaccines (and also what mutations facilitate the "enhancing" antibodies, which help the virus infect cells better, Sshhh...) 
  It's hardly a secret that what leaked out of military labs (Ft. Detrick? Wuhan?) was a red-team/blue-team bioweapons project, with offensive and defensive aspects. That's how these weapons are worked out. Pfizer is doing the same thing. 
  The "new" "Omicron" (not Nu, and certainly not "Xi") variant has a lot of these escape-features, and the first 4 cases were purportedly identified in fully-vaccinated people. It's (S)pike protein is not recognized by the existing PCR tests, but 2 other proteins are, so it can be somewhat discerned by existing PCR tests, due to this feature. 
  That spike protein has a lot of mutations, all by itself. That's what you would expect if viral evolution were being directed to avoiding antibodies to spike protein, created by vaccines to spike protein. (It COULD be engineered this way, and exactly what WOULD work was described in a paper from May 2021, as I recall.).
  Unsurprisingly, Pfizer/Bio-NTech and Moderna are suddenly announcing timelines to bring fresh vaccine-products to market against this strain. (Pity Australia, which has purchased 14 doses of Pfizer vaccine for each Australian, enough for a dose twice per year, for 7 years. Who signs these contracts?)

  What we appear to be seeing is the sudden "discovery" of this strain in other countries, like the UK, Germany and Netherlands, giving the impression of very rapid spread, but which might be half a year of spreading under the radar, with a rapid and dramatic discovery everywhere. 
  What the computer modeling I read, and posted in August, Vaccines Help Delta https://www.johndayblog.com/2021/08/vaccines-help-delta.html , https://www.journalofinfection.com/article/S0163-4453(21)00392-3/fulltext , showed was the mechanisms by which viral mutation avoids "neutralizing antibodies" and exploits "enhancing antibodies". 

  Let's assume that this "new" (not "Nu") strain is close enough to that modeled-ideal to be marketed as such, and to fit the new "vaccines" which are bound to have already been brought to the pre-production stage ("100 days" to release, per Pfizer). 
  Let's also assume that this strain preferentially infects those already vaccinated against January 2020 (S)pike protein. 
Those are the people who already chose once (or twice) to accept experimental "vaccines", and are invested in this "solution". 
They are the prime market for new "vaccines", are they not? 
(I am not a prime market for new COVID vaccines, because I have declined to accept one of the old COVID vaccines.)

  It is acceptable in this scenario for fears of the vaccinated to rise, specifically due to their vaccinated status. It is already apparent to many of us that the vaccinated are more susceptible to COVID Delta after 6 months than are the unvaccinated. (It is just not spoken in polite company.)
This new, aggressive, rapidly spreading, "unforeseeable" variant bursting upon the scene will make that awkward fact acceptable, within the modified context of the "Vaccines Good" Narrative.

  This is a HUUUGE Stretch to maintain that dominant narrative. 
Remember how the body counts were given on the five oclock news every day during the Vietnam War? 
I do. My Dad , the Marine, was over there. I remember waking up about 4:30 AM and hearing the radio in Mom's room. It sounded like the US Embassy in Saigon was under rocket and mortar attack, and that there were gun-battles going on inside the embassy compound.
I eventually ventured into Mom's room. 
"Mom, isn't Saigon the main city in Vietnam?" , I asked. "Yes, it is." 
"Mom, I thought we were winning the war." 
"That's what we all thought."
  That morning was in late 1967. Dad got home at the end of the year, shortly before the Tet Offensive 1968. Everybody figured out that we-weren't-winning after Tet. Some military experts explained that Tet destroyed the Vietcong, that most of them died fighting in the streets, getting shot up by Americans, and that was technically true, but they died winning their war for their country against foreign armies...

  This is our opportunity to contribute to the widespread societal recognition of the painfully-obvious, to achieve Paradigm-Shift, which is, again, way overdue.

First Cases Of Omicron COVID Variant Detected In UK

this is maybe even past history just repeating.
i’m starting to worry that we’re caught in some kind of groundhog day time loop.

Big Pharma unveils its plans for Omicron strain

(​"​Israel​"​) ​FDA report finds all-cause mortality higher among vaccinated
FDA report shows Pfizer's clinical trials found 24% higher all-cause mortality rate among the vaccinated compared to placebo group. Report emphasizes that "None of the deaths were considered related to vaccination."

A pandemic of the vaccinated or Ivermectin ignored?​  ​by Justus R. Hope, MD
​  ​Gibraltar is the most vaccinated place on the planet with more than 99% of its population fully vaccinated, and with many also having received a booster. A total of 94,019 vaccine doses have been administered to Gibraltarians.
​  ​Considering Gibraltar has a population of some 30,000, that works out to an average of three shots per person...
​  ​Gibraltar is not alone among highly vaccinated populations exhibiting massive virus surges.
According to the CDC, Vermont has a higher vaccination rate - at 72% - than any other state, yet it also has one of the highest rates of new COVID cases...
​  ​Where do we find low or no rates of COVID-19 cases, you might ask?
​​Perhaps we could observe those countries or areas and note what they are doing differently to account for their success.
​  ​For example, we know that India has eliminated its COVID-19 Pandemic after implementing a national Ivermectin policy in the protocol. As a result, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi have no more problems with pandemic surges.
​  ​Over the last 75 days, Delhi has recorded less than 10 COVID-19 deaths. Likewise, Uttar Pradesh, with more than 230 million people, has recorded fewer than 20 COVID deaths in the past 60 days, while the United States, with a roughly similar population, has recorded some 87,300 deaths - more than 4,000 times as many.
​  ​India's only remaining hotspot remains the highly vaccinated state of Kerala, which continues to pay the price. Over the last 30 days alone, Kerala has logged over 10,000 deaths. The main difference between Kerala and the rest of India was its lower use of Ivermectin...
​(​This article opens with the story of the last case of smallpox in our world, in England, in 1977, due to a lab leak in a condemned ​research ​lab, shortly before it was​ ​ closed,. The lady ​photographer ​died of it, and the lab director killed himself that same day, 9/11/1978.​)​

Why the retail industry is fighting vaccine mandates​    (How long can the narrative hold on against all reality?)
​  ​The industry showed how strongly it feels about the issue this month when the Biden administration directed companies with 100 or more workers to mandate vaccines or weekly tests by Jan. 4. Five days after that announcement, the National Retail Federation sued to stop the effort.
​  ​“We all agree with the premise that vaccines are good and vaccines save lives,” Stephanie Martz, chief administrative officer of the NRF, said in an interview Monday.
​  ​“But by the same token, you can’t just say, ‘OK, make it so.’”
The order is now held up in litigation, challenged by a number of lawsuits from a broad coalition of opponents, and could make its way to the Supreme Court.

​Jim Kunstler ​
  I am sorry to tell you that the mRNA “vaccines” are just not working that well. The already-vaccinated millions, marinated in the goodness of their obedience to authority, live in terror of the unvaccinated, who so knavishly spread disease to those vaccinated against it...
  The relentless mindfuckery abroad in this land courtesy of your politicized news media, the despotic social networks, the bottomless greed of the pharmaceutical-makers and their errand boys in the CDC, plus the malevolent generosity of sponsors like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and George Soros. Thus, the blue mommies of America follow Pied Pipers like NPR and Sanjay Gupta holding hands with Big Bird to vax-up the kids.
  It’s just a cult initiation ceremony, you understand. Vaxing the kids reinforces the psychotic mass formation intoxication of the blue mommies. It does absolutely nothing good for the kids, who realistically have a near-zero chance of being harmed by Covid-19 — but have a fair chance of being harmed by the mRNA “vaccines,” which will mess with their still-developing immune systems and their various organs. All the authority of Anthony Fauci’s officialdom presses remorselessly toward the ever-receding horizon of max vax. It begins to look like enough parents are onto the game and will refuse to go along with it.
  Dr. Fauci and his evil network are in the process of being smashed at long last. First, there is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s book just out, The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health. I was up reading it at two-thirty in the morning. The Kindle version is $
,2.95 cheap. Get it.

Kids hardly transmit COVID to anybody in a household. Adults do most of it.

1) Groupthink (Nobody else is. We all say the same thing and do the same thing. We're following CDC recommendations.)
2) I really need to keep my job...
[Steve Kirsch has compiled another long and impressive list of a whole lot of very bad things happening to COVID- vaccinated experimental-subjects.]

There is suddenly a lot of buzz (maybe foreshadowing) about smallpox.
In Vitro Characterization of a Nineteenth-Century Therapy for Smallpox
​  ​In the nineteenth century, smallpox ravaged through the United States and Canada. At this time, a botanical preparation, derived from the carnivorous plant Sarracenia purpurea, was proclaimed as being a successful therapy for smallpox infections. The work described characterizes the antipoxvirus activity associated with this botanical extract against vaccinia virus, monkeypox virus and variola virus, the causative agent of smallpox. Our work demonstrates the in vitro characterization of Sarracenia purpurea as the first effective inhibitor of poxvirus replication at the level of early viral transcription. With the renewed threat of poxvirus-related infections, our results indicate Sarracenia purpurea may act as another defensive measure against Orthopoxvirus infections.

Late Stage Globalism’s ‘Hail Mary’
How do they get our souls?
Soul traps. The lures are the lusts and hungers of this life.​..
That isn’t what’s happening here.
​  ​What’s happening is we’re being herded into The Matrix. As I’ve written previously, in The Crypto Capitalist Manifesto, and here, that the core rationalization of the “You’ll Own Nothing And Be Happy” Great Narrative (as it is now being called) is that the rabble has to ratchet down its standard of living. The reason why isn’t about climate change or COVID.
It’s because we’re in late stage Globalism and the world’s financial and economic system is on the verge of imploding.
​  ​The people in charge, the people who’ve been doubling down on failed policies for decades, the people who brought us here with Quantitative Easing, ZIRP/NIRP, debt, Big Government and The Forever Wars, they want to stay in charge.
​  ​So they’re going to use COVID, Climate, Collectivism and Wokeness to herd the knuckle-dragging plebians into The Metaverse. That way they’ll be easier to control, they’ll be placated, and they won’t take up so much space in the real world.
In the real world, the insular, inbred elites will be zipping around in their private jets. They’ll be reimagining everybody else’s lives. Deciding how much “real world time” and resources to apportion to the rabble. Uploading intellectual Muzak directly into their brains telling them that it’s all for their own good...
​  ​There’s only one problem.​..​
Mind, consciousness and intelligence will never emerge from material reality because it’s the other way around.​..
​  ​In the meantime, if you’re a plebeian, the work of the day is The Great Opt-Out, a Great Reject. Decentralize your affairs.  Take sovereignty over your own life and your own economics. Link up with others doing the same. The counter-revolutionary impulse against late stage Globalism is, in addition to spirituality, meditation and contemplative practices, embracing decentralization and public key cryptography.

 Eating and Breathing,

  We are in an alternate universe this month, with Jenny's low back surgery and my firing for non-vaccination. 
I'm not starting to whine. That's just the shock to the system, which caused the transition. 
  Jenny is recovering very well, almost completely off pain medicines, except Tylenol, for a week, and I am building a smallish "dream house", which is looking better and better on drawings. They have that appearance of reality now. All the angles look like the same real thing from different angles.
  Opportunity has been waiting, and free time presented the opportunity to get the operation done and build the house, the first phase funded by cashing-out my modest retirement, before the "money" goes POOF!
  Life takes sudden turns, and a lot of us have known that for a long time, but it's not possible to know exactly what turn it will take, or when. 
Having multiple projects "on the drawing board", or in-the-works, helps a person stay well applied to life.
  Today, Thanksgiving Day, Jim the extraordinary climber visited and we got the live oak manicured better than ever (hours of fun for at least part of the family).

  We are figuring things out as life unfolds. I am so grateful that Jenny is healing so well and moving more normally each day.
We await further divine instruction as we proceed.

  David Graeber finished a book, The Dawn of Everything, a month before he died, about a year ago. 
The premise is that we did not always live and assume as we now assume we always lived and assumed. 
  We CAN live in large groups without hierarchical inequity, in cities, and it has often been thus...
David Graeber,
​  M​ost of human history is irreparably lost to us. Our species, Homo sapiens, has existed for at least 200,000 years, but we have next to no idea what was happening for the majority of that time. In northern Spain, for instance, at the cave of Altamira, paintings and engravings were created over a period of at least 10,000 years, between around 25,000 and 15,000 B.C. Presumably, a lot of dramatic events occurred during that period. We have no way of knowing what most of them were. This is of little consequence to most people, since most people rarely think about the broad sweep of human history anyway. They don’t have much reason to. Insofar as the question comes up at all, it’s usually when reflecting on why the world seems to be in such a mess and why human beings so often treat each other badly — the reasons for war, greed, exploitation and indifference to others’ suffering. Were we always like that, or did something, at some point, go terribly wrong?
​  ​One of the first people to ask this question in the modern era was the Swiss-French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, in an essay on the origins of social inequality that he submitted to a competition in 1754. Once upon a time, he wrote, we were hunter-gatherers, living in a state of childlike innocence, as equals. These bands of foragers could be egalitarian because they were isolated from one another, and their material needs were simple. According to Rousseau, it was only after the agricultural revolution and the rise of cities that this happy condition came to an end. Urban living meant the appearance of written literature, science and philosophy, but at the same time, almost everything bad in human life: patriarchy, standing armies, mass executions and annoying bureaucrats demanding that we spend much of our lives filling out forms.
​  ​Rousseau lost the essay competition, but the story he told went on to become a dominant narrative of human history, laying the foundations upon which contemporary “big history” writers — such as Jared Diamond, Francis Fukuyama and Yuval Noah Harari — built their accounts of how our societies evolved.​..
​  The history we learn in school has made us more willing to tolerate a world in which some can turn their wealth into power over others, while others are told their needs are not important and their lives have no intrinsic worth. As a result, we are more likely to believe that inequality is just an inescapable consequence of living in large, complex, urban, technologically sophisticated societies. ​ 
​  We want to offer an entirely different account of human history. We believe that much of what has been discovered in the last few decades, by archaeologists and others in kindred disciplines, cuts against the conventional wisdom propounded by modern “big history” writers. What this new evidence shows is that a surprising number of the world’s earliest cities were organized along robustly egalitarian lines. In some regions, we now know, urban populations governed themselves for centuries without any indication of the temples and palaces that would later emerge; in others, temples and palaces never emerged at all, and there is simply no evidence of a class of administrators or any other sort of ruling stratum. It would seem that the mere fact of urban life does not, necessarily, imply any particular form of political organization, and never did.

​More about this book, and well explained. (It might be a good Christmas present, but itis long.)​
Everything we “know” about the rise of Man is wrong
​   ​For 350 years, it has been common knowledge that Man went from bands of hunter-gatherers, to pastoralists, to farming, to industry. In parallel, Man lived in families, in tribes, in villages and then in cities, as technology improved. Technology, the third parallel, took us from the stone age through the bronze age and the iron age to the industrial revolution. All neat, tidy and clearly separable. David Graeber and David Wengrow claim there is no evidence for this. In The Dawn of Everything, they show proof of an unbelievable variety of living styles, governance and intellectual activity all over the world and throughout time. It was never a straight line progression. It was never the result of technology. And possibly most stunning, the larger the population was did not also mean more restrictions, more crime, more laws, or more inequality. This is an important book.

​  All risks in the economy are piled onto the whole economy, so the "best" strategy is to gobble up "risky assets", because you will only get benefits until the whole thing crashes. "Moral Hazard".
The Fed's Moral Hazard Monster Is About to Lay Waste to "Wealth"

From "Space Age" to "Waste Age"...
  How will this age be remembered? After the stone age, the bronze age, the steam age and the information age, what material or innovation will most define the current era? According to a new exhibition at the Design Museum, the most ubiquitous hallmark of the Anthropocene is not a gamechanging material, nor the mastery of technology. It’s trash...
  Generating waste, the curators argue, has long been a primary engine of the economy. The history of the lightbulb is an illuminating case in point. In the 1920s, bulbs were so long-lasting that they were deemed commercially unviable. General Electric, Philips and others formed the Phoebus cartel in 1924 to standardise the life expectancy of lightbulbs at 1,000 hours – down from the previous 2,500 hours. And so the culture of planned obsolescence was born.

US COVID Deaths In 2021 Have Surpassed 2020's Total... Despite Vaccines, Treatments

​  ​A report in the U.K. Telegraph explains how the Covid-19 vaccine has led to a sharp rise in excess deaths...
Mortality is rising because more people are dying. And more people are dying because more people have been vaccinated. 
​  ​There’s a link between rising mortality and the Covid-19 vaccine. 
Naturally, the media wants to shift responsibility for the fatalities to “delayed treatments” and “the lack of preventable care”. But this is just a diversion. 
The primary cause of death is the injection of a toxic pathogen into the bloodstreams of roughly 70% of the population. 
That’s what’s causing the clotting, the bleeding, the pulmonary embolisms, the heart attacks, the strokes, and the premature deaths. 
It’s the vaccine...
​  ​The sudden surge in mortality is not a meaningless blip on the radar. It’s a red flag indicating a significant break in the five-year trend. Something has gone terribly wrong. Mass vaccination was supposed to reduce the number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths. Instead, the fatalities continue to rise.
​  ​The answer to that question can be found in the data itself. As the author admits, there has been a sharp uptick in heart failure, heart disease, circulatory conditions and strokes. (Diabetes is the outlier)​ ​
​[Actually, Diabetes causes inflammation of the arterial circulation as the mode of injury and death. It is not an outlier at all. Vaccination accellerates the destructive processes of diabetes.]​
​  ​These are precisely the ailments one would expect to see if one had just injected millions of people with a clot-generating biologic that triggers a violent immune response that attacks the inner lining of the blood vessels inflicting severe damage to the body’s critical infrastructure.

A Doctor's Last Words

 Listening Hopefully,

Our fossil fuel energy predicament, including why the correct story is rarely told​ , Gail Tverberg
​(Advertisers don't like "negative stories" in for profit publications.)   Thanks Dennis.
This is another very good  "You Are Here" summary from "Gail The Actuary".
Limits to fossil fuels have been known and well documented since M. King Hubbard and Admiral Hyman Rickover in the mid 1950s.
Exponential consumption eats finite, recoverable supply. 
The easiest, cheapest fuels all got used first.
The economy is over-indebted to a rosy future​, which is imaginary.
A lot of fuel goes to extracting the more expensive fuel, leaving less to run the economy.
Modern industrial economy is predicated on exponential growth, which requires cheap fuel.
In recent years, there has been very little investment in developing new oilfields, so supply is about to fall, though fracking existing fields can increase supply for a year, maybe two.
It takes a lot of fossil fuel to implement wind and solar power installations. They cannot replace fossil fuels, just supplement, as they are doing.
Ships, trucks and trains burn diesel. Liquid fuels are indispensable to transport, which is as important to economy as production.
Complex systems, like the economy which supports us, arise gradually in nature, and decline rapidly when necessary resources are depleted.
There is no honest, factual way to present this in a "positive light" which will make people buy what the advertisers are selling.
A "Green Transition" could be a constructive approach, but only if the first step were to be conservation of resources, which is anathema to growth-economy.
(I am trying to green-transition on my own. You can, too. The owners know all this. What are they planning?)

Real Rates At Levels Associated With "Panics, Wars, & Depression"... And What Comes Next Could Be Devastating
American ​national ​debt​:GDP​​ is at almost the all time high​ seen briefly in WW-2. (It is far higher in real terms, since GNP,used then, described productive economy, and GDP lumps non-government-debt into the same category as production). This can be managed by massive economic growth, which cannot happen with high costs of labor, resources, and outsourcing of production, as well as large parasitic debt loads on all sectors of real economy.
​  The remaining choices are default, which also destroys a currency, government and economy, or long periods of "negative real interest rates", accomplished by high inflation and low nominal interest rates.​ In America, we had this after Nixon had to default on the gold standard in 1971. We called it "stagflation". It lasted until the mid 1980s. There was still plenty of cheap fuel in the world in those days.
​  A long period of stagflation is predicted, but it assumes that American and global economy do not collapse. 
This essay does not consider the dollar being demoted from global reserve currency, which seems almost certain to happen as the vast global military machine gets defunded by economic reality.​

"The real virus is tyranny/medical-authoritarianism. 'The pandemic' is just the tool being used to spread it."  Thans Eleni.
​  ​The Davos World Economic Forum (WEF) is a premier forum for governments, global corporations and international entrepreneurs. Founded in 1971 by engineer and economist Klaus Schwab, the WEF describes its mission as “shaping global, regional and industry agendas” and “improving the state of the world”. According to its website, “moral and intellectual integrity is at the heart of everything it does.”
The WEF has been involved in the coronavirus pandemic in several ways.
​  ​First, the WEF was, together with the Gates Foundation, a sponsor of the prescient “Event 201” coronavirus pandemic simulation exercise, held in New York City on October 18, 2019 – the same day as the opening of the Wuhan Military World Games, seen by some as “ground zero” of the global pandemic. China itself has argued that US military athletes may have brought the virus to Wuhan. ​ 
​  Second, the WEF has been a leading proponent of digital biometric identity systems, arguing that they will make societies and industries more efficient, more productive and more secure. In July 2019, the WEF started a project to “shape the future of travel with biometric-enabled digital traveler identity management”. In addition, the WEF collaborates with the ID2020 alliance, which is funded by the Gates and Rockefeller foundations and runs a program to “provide digital ID with vaccines”. In particular, ID2020 sees the vaccination of children as “an entry point for digital identity.”
​  ​Third, WEF founder Klaus Schwab is the author of the book COVID-19: The Great Reset, published in July 2020, which argues that the coronavirus pandemic can and should be used for an “economic, societal, geopolitical, environmental and technological reset”, including, in particular, advancing global governance, accelerating digital transformation, and tackling climate change.
​  ​Finally, the WEF has been running, since 1993, a program called “Global Leaders for Tomorrow”, rebranded, in 2004, as “Young Global Leaders”. This program aims at identifying, selecting and promoting future global leaders in both business and politics. Indeed, quite a few “Young Global Leaders” have later managed to become Presidents, Prime Ministers, or CEOs...​ (Pete Buttigieg, Gavin Newsom, Chrystia Freeland, Jose Manuel Barroso, Angela Merkel, 
Sa​rkozy, Nikki Haley, Jeff Bezos, Peter Thiel,  Mark Zuckerberg, Jacinda Ardern, Gordon Brown… What do they all have in common?)

Germany | Dr Thomas Jendges Head of Clinic, Commits Suicide “COVID-19 Vaccine Is a Genocide”​   (This principled physician did die on this hill.)
In Germany, the Head of the Chemnitz Clinic, Dr Thomas Jendges, committed suicide saying he no longer wants to be part of the Genocide happening vis the COVID-19 Vaccine​.
​  ​The Chief of a Clinic in Chemnitz, Germany committed suicide. In a letter found on the scene, he explains that he can no longer be part of the Genocide.
​  ​On Tuesday, Dr Thomas Jendges, Head of the Chemnitz Clinic, committed suicide by jumping from the top of the clinic’s building in Flemmingstrasse, Germany, according to Bild . He was 55 years old.
​  ​The Docteur died on the spot from his injuries. Jendges had only been appointed sole managing Director of the Chemnitz Clinic since October 1st 2021. Since April, he was acting as Managing Director of East Germany’s largest municipal hospital.​..
​  Reports of a letter that the deceased allegedly left behind are circulating. Jendges alledgly killed himself to set an example against the corona vaccinations. These are “bio-warfare agents”, so it says in the postings. He is also said to have described the vaccine in his letter as genocide and a crime against humanity”, according to Tag24.
​  ​According to Las repúblicas, In the lengthy farewell letter Dr. Thomas Jendges wrote before his suicide and demanded its publication, he is said to have harshly criticized the information policy of governments in dealing with the dangerousness of Covid vaccines. The constant lies and deceit to the patient and the vaccinated that the vaccines are supposedly harmless, he could no longer bear them, it is said in the letter.
​  ​He condemns vaccinating the population with experimental and lethal vaccines against Covid-19, which is in fact more of a biological warfare agent created and manipulated for that use, than for any other known utility. For Dr. Thomas Jendges a genocide and a crime against humanity is taking place...
​  ​Because the mayor threatened to fire him if he no longer stayed in the submissive line imposed by government order and refused to vaccinate patients at the clinic, there were presumably no more options for Jendges. This director has not wanted to support a crime of the federal government, the state government and his faithful henchmen. So he considered that his suicide was the only way to oppose him.​..
​  Although Dr. Jendges has ordered that his entire suicide letter be published, according to the current state of knowledge of the mayor of Chemnitz, Sven Schulze of the SPD, who continues to prevent this publication.​..
​  Jendges leaves behind a wife and a son.

​Here is a 2 minute video the good doctor made before he plunged to his death, in German, with English subtitles.  Thanks V.A.
He seems completely sane to me.  (The site raises the question of whether he was "suicided".)

Another major red flag about Covid vaccines and death
This one coming from data on more than 4 million vaccinated Swedes​ 
People appear to die at rates 20 percent or more above normal for weeks after receiving their second Covid vaccine dose, according to data from a huge Swedish study.

Onward Into Darkness​, James Kunstler​
  ​Was it reassuring to see Dr. Anthony Fauci declare on MSNBC: “What we’re starting to see now is an uptick in hospitalizations among people who have been fully vaccinated but not boosted”? ...

​  ​In case you can’t put it together, that “uptick” is happening because Dr. Fauci’s vaccines undermine immune systems, making the vaxxed more susceptible to disease, and not just the illness called Covid-19, but to disease generally, including cancer, and to all kinds of mischief and mayhem around the organs as well...
​  ​Everything your government tells you these days is a lie — the old epigram goes — including “and” and “the”. The chief victim of that inexhaustible deceit is America’s rule-of-law. Case in point, the shenanigans in the DC District federal court last week in the action known as Page v. Comey et al. (basically the whole FBI and DOJ). This is Carter Page’s lawsuit over the phony FISA court warrants sworn against him in the attempt to use the “three-hop rule” to surveil everybody in the 2016 Trump campaign...
​  ​Next was the FBI’s invasion of Project Veritas chief James O’Keefe’s home in a case involving “Joe Biden’s” daughter Ashley Biden’s personal diary, which Project Veritas was alleged to be holding, and which supposedly contained some entries about sketchy father-and-daughter showers together...
...More to the point, though, within hours of the FBI confiscating Mr. O’Keefe’s cell phones and other devices, Mr. O’Keefe’s private communications with his attorneys turned up in the hands of The New York Times, which published some of the material. Of course, James O’Keefe is in the middle of a defamation lawsuit against The New York Times. And wasn’t it a fortuitous coincidence that the newspaper came into possession of their adversary’s privileged information? The thing is (of course), that the info could have only been provided to The Times by one possible source: the FBI, investigative arm of the DOJ...

​Public Health England and Public Health Scotland data best fit the COVID vaccines enhancing viral pathogenicity increasingly after 6 months since administration.​
Covid-19 Deaths 3,000% Higher Than This Time Last Year And 80% Of The Dead Had The Vaccine​ 
 ​The latest Covid-19 statistical report released by Public Health Scotland on the 22nd September also reveals that from August 21st through to September 17th 2021, 69,639 positive cases were recorded among the unvaccinated population, whilst 79,613 cases were recorded among the vaccinated population; 60,923 of which were among the fully vaccinated.
​  ​As you can see the number of cases is very similar between the unvaccinated population and fully vaccination population so you would expect to see a similar number of deaths among the unvaccinated and fully vaccinated population.​  ​But table 17 of the latest report shows that this isn’t the case, as the fully vaccinated have accounted for the vast majority of Covid-19 deaths every week since the 14th August through to the 10th September...

​Public Health England data...​
“Fresher information has fortified this conclusion of the summer. In every age group over 30 in the UK, the rates of Covid infection per 100,000 are now higher among the vaxxed than the unvaxxed. Indeed, in the cohorts aged between 40 and 79, infection rates among the vaccinated are more than twice as high as among the unvaccinated.​"

​Paul Craig Roberts​ (hard words)
​  ​The data from Israel bears out that the pandemic is among the vaccinated.
​  ​The reason the vaccinated are at risk is two-fold. The “vaccine” has serious side-effects that are confused with Covid, and the “vaccine” damages and ultimately destroys the innate human immune system, making the vaccinated more susceptible to every virus and illness.
​  ​Distinguished scientists and medical researchers who are independent of Big Pharma grants have established these facts, but the whore media refuses to report them. All people get from CNN, MSNBC, NPR, BBC, New York Times, CDC, NIH, AMA, politicians, and social media is indoctrination that causes people to damage and kill themselves by accepting the “vaccine.”
​  ​The facts are clear. The Covid vaccination campaign is the largest mass murder movement in history.
​  ​The public response to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s just published book, The Real Anthony Fauci, shows that people are seeing through the orchestrated narrative cultivated by the whore media. The book has had a media blackout as if it doesn’t exist, but is nevertheless Number One on Amazon’s best seller list and Number One on Kindle’s best seller list.

​The "URF", under-reporting-factor, for these reported events and deaths is somewhere between 10 and 100. 
The CDC pretends the reports are all-inclusive.​
​ ​ The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new data today showing a total of 875,653 adverse events following COVID vaccines were reported between Dec. 14, 2020, and Nov. 5, 2021, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.
​  ​The data included a total of 18,461 reports of deaths — an increase of 383 over the previous week, and 135,400 reports of serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 7,943 compared with the previous week.

​All-cause-admissions are the topic, not COVID admissions.​
​  ​There was a hidden gem in a blog post by Aaron Siri that nobody picked up. It was evidence that vaccinated people are 9X more likely to be admitted to the hospital than unvaccinated.​..
  ​Aaron Siri discovered someone who convinced their hospital to do something really unusual: track the vaccination status of each admitted patient to the hospital. Tracking was based on whether you got the vaccine or not, not “two weeks after you got the vaccine” which is a major definition difference. In short, honest tracking.​..
​..A concerned Physician Assistant, Deborah Conrad, convinced her hospital to carefully track the Covid-19 vaccination status of every patient admitted to her hospital. 
​..​As Ms. Conrad has detailed, her hospital serves a community in which less than 50% of the individuals were vaccinated for Covid-19 but yet, during the same time period, approximately 90% of the individuals admitted to her hospital were documented to have received this vaccine.
​  ​These patients were admitted for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to COVID-19 infections.  Even more troubling is that there were many individuals who were young, many who presented with unusual or unexpected health events, and many who were admitted months after vaccination.
​ ​As you might expect, the hospital rewarded Deborah Conrad for her courage and leadership to expose the truth by firing her.

​This paper looks at all-cause-mortality during COVID and the vaccination campaign. It looks at March to October 2021.
The massive vaccination campaign (380 M administered doses, 178 M fully vaccinated individuals, mainly January-August 2021 and March-August 2021, respectively) had no detectable mitigating effect, and may have contributed to making the younger population more vulnerable (35-64 years, summer-2021 mortality).

FDA Asks Federal Judge to Grant it Until the Year 2076 to Fully Release Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine Data
The fed gov’t shields Pfizer from liability. Gives it billions of dollars. Makes Americans take its product. But won’t let you see the data supporting its safety/efficacy. Who does the gov't work for? ​ 
That is not a typo.   It wants 55 years to produce this information to the public.​  
(Well, they will give out a little bit each month and it will just take 55 years to provide what they collected in about half a year​. We're still waiting for the declassified JFK assassination files, so this is completely normal​.)

  ​Ivermectin gums up SARS-CoV-2 binding to ACE-2 receptors in computer modeling, another potential mechanism of beneficial action.​
Microscopic interactions between ivermectin and key human and viral proteins involved in SARS-CoV-2 infection
​...Here we conduct a molecular dynamics study with the aim to assess the interactions of ivermectin, an antiparasitic drug with broad-spectrum antiviral activity, with the human Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme 2 (ACE2), the viral 3CLpro and PLpro proteases, and the viral SARS Unique Domain (SUD). The drug/target interactions have been characterized in silico by describing the nature of the non-covalent interactions found and by measuring the extent of their time duration along the MD simulation. Results reveal that the ACE2 protein and the ACE2/RBD aggregates form the most persistent interactions with ivermectin, while the binding with the remaining viral proteins is more limited and unspecific.

​Another mechanism of benefit from ivermectin, which did much better than any other drug studied.​
​Identification of 3-chymotrypsin-like protease (3CLPro) inhibitors as​ potential anti-SARS-CoV-2 agents
In conclusion, the SARS-CoV-2 specific 3CLpro enzyme was used as a target to screen the potential drugs that have high binding affinity for 3CLpro since it plays a major role during viral replication. We have identified that boceprevir, micafungin, ombitasvir, paritaprevir, and tipranavir exhibited partial inhibitory effect, whereas ivermectin was able to completely inhibit the SARS-COV-2 3CLpro enzymatic activity in vitro at the tested doses.

Why Ivermectin Is Superior to Pfizer’s Antiviral Pill
Comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore discusses a video by John Campbell, Ph.D. where he explains the similarities between Pfizer’s expensive new antiviral drug for COVID and ivermectin, and why ivermectin is better.
Campbell cited a number of scientific papers which highlighted ivermectin’s effectiveness as an antiviral against COVID, including:
​  ​A paper from the Royal Society of Chemistry which concluded ivermectin exhibits “inhibition” to the “catalytic activity” which causes COVID to replicate.
​  ​An article in Nature which found that out of the 13 off-target drugs tested by researchers, only ivermectin blocked viral replication of SARS-CoV-2 by more than 80%.
​  ​A paper from The Royal Society of Chemistry which showed ivermectin, out of dozens of drugs the researchers experimented with, had the “highest score” when it comes to to stopping viral replication of SARS-CoV-2
Notably, the paper showed that Remdesivir, which is currently patented and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, had the lowest score out of all of the compounds.
​  ​Campbell also pointed to a paper from Frontiers in Microbiology, which he said showed ivermectin not only attacked and bound to COVID’s spike protein which stopped it from infecting the cell, but also bound to the cell receptor.
​  ​“So it doesn’t just work one way, but two different ways,” explained Dore. “It double screws it up so you can’t get COVID.”
Campbell put it this way: “Not only does ivermectin bend the COVID key, but it also ruins the lock.”
Campbell told viewers:
“So as far as we’ve been told, the new Pfizer drug is only working against one particular biochemical pathway to stop COVID, and with ivermectin, it’s working against that same biochemical pathway to stop COVID but also several others.”

Professor of Medicine, ​Paul Marik MD has been a leader in successful early and hospital treatment of COVID from the very beginning, every step of the way, an excellent and compassionate clinical scientist.​
​  ​On Friday, November 12, 2021, Sentara Hospital System in Virginia submitted a motion to dismiss the complaint filed against it earlier in the week by Dr. Paul Marik—co-chief medical officer of the FLCCC, tenured professor, and the Director of the Intensive Care Unit at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Dr. Marik filed suit seeking a temporary injunction to lift the ban Sentara Healthcare System had placed on a range of highly effective COVID-19 treatments used by Dr. Marik to save critically ill COVID-19 patients. These components, including IV vitamin C, dutasteride, fluvoxamine, finasteride, and ivermectin, had previously been successfully used—with the exception of ivermectin, the use of which Sentara never permitted —to reduce COVID deaths in the ICU by as much as 50 percent. The result of the prohibition has been a sharp increase in mortality at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

Tiny Little Strings


  We can much better comprehend our relationship with our masters through our smartphone "familiars" if we read this short interview with Korean philosopher Byung-Chul Han: Thanks for this deep insight, Charles. I am including little snippets. 
  The smartphone today is either a digital workplace or a digital confessional. Every device, and every technique of domination, generates totems that are used for subjugation. This is how domination is strengthened. The smartphone is the cult object of digital domination. As a subjugation device, it acts like a rosary and its beads; this is how we keep a smartphone constantly at hand. The ‘like’ is a digital “amen.” We keep going to confession. We undress by choice. But we don’t ask for forgiveness: instead, we call out for attention...
  When we are depressed we lose our relationship with the world, with the other. We sink into a scattered ego. I think digitalization, and the smartphone, make us depressed. There are stories of dentists who say that their patients cling to their phones when a treatment is painful. Why do they do that? Thanks to the smartphone, I am aware of myself. It helps me to be certain that I am alive, that I exist. That’s why we cling to our cellphones in situations like dental treatment. As a child, I remember holding my mother’s hand at the dentist’s office. Today the mother will not offer the child her hand, but a cellphone
Support does not come from others, but from oneself. That makes us sick. We have to recover the other person...
  Only a repressive regime provokes resistance. On the contrary, the neoliberal regime, which does not oppress freedom, but exploits it, does not face any resistance. It is not repressive, but seductive. Domination becomes complete the moment it presents itself as freedom. ("Is perceived as freedom", I'd say)

  Think very carefully about what would happen in America, or your country, with only 15% less oil. Covid may have dropped consumption less than 5% (Correct me if I am wrong.) Make as many accomodations for the future as you can, now, please.
  Despite the pitfalls to prices and supply, the IEA said current low oil and gas spending was one of the few areas aligned with its most ambitious Net Zero Emissions by 2050 (NZE) scenario in which no new fossil fuel projects should go forward.
  In its most conservative status quo, or stated policies scenario (STEPS), however, average annual spending on oil to meet demand would need to rise sharply to above $500 billion - more than at any time in the last five years.
  Energy consultancy FGE said in a note the problem was not an immediate one, but could come to a crescendo in coming years.

On The Limits To Transition:
Logically considered, 2021 ought to have been the place where old assumptions go to die...  
  At the level of theory, there’s nothing much wrong with the idea of outdated notions (or humans) undergoing a mass extinction event.
  Our understanding, and our ability to plan ahead, can only benefit from the discovery that the economy isn’t, after all, ‘a wholly monetary system, capable of infinite growth’, but is in fact an energy system, limited by the laws of physics as they apply to the Earth’s energy resources.
It is, after all, hard to plan effectively when your base predicates are false.  
  In practical terms, though, we’re faced with something that moves beyond an inconvenient truth into what is for most people an almost inconceivable one. This is the proposition that there may be no wholly sufficient replacement for the fossil fuel energy on which the economy of today is based.
  Put another way, the desirable – indeed, imperative – de-carbonization of the economy is likely to involve shrinking it as well.  
  If you held any leadership position, you’d have to think long and hard before going public on any of this. Your wiser course of action might be to talk up the positives in the current situation whilst preparing, with the greatest urgency, for the new one...
  This implies that what we need isn’t re-set, but re-design.
  At a later stage we may revisit the taxonomy of de-growth but, for now, we can note that a contracting economy implies a process of de-complexification. The range of products and services available will narrow, and methods of supply will be simplified as producers try to work around the adverse effects of falling utilization rates and the loss of critical mass. The simplification process will involve substantial de-layering.  
  The brunt of contraction in the private sector will be borne by sectors providing discretionary (non-essential) goods and services...
The critical question for policymakers now might be that of how we ensure that the essentials are available and affordable for everyone. 
(Demand destruction?  It's what they do everywhere else...)

The End of Super Imperialism, by Alex Gladstein  is actually the best summary of the book "Super Imperialism" and it's 2 subsequent follow-up editions since release in 1972, which I have seen. 
 It is in Bitcoin Magazine, so it has to put in a blurb for Bitcoin at the end, the thesis that Bitcoin can replace the petro-dollar as global reserve currency. There are a lot of weaknesses to that thesis, which are not brought up at all. I think it was added to an excellent essay to get published and paid. 
  With every prior empire, the empire still had to finance debt for wars. With the debt-based-dollar replacing gold, and countries [like Saudi Arabia] having to recycle excess dollars into lending to the Federal Government [for wars] there was a perfect trap for the rest of the world. 
  The trap was set when the USA was the largest creditor nation by far, and held 70% of non-Soviet gold stores, at the end of WW-2. 
Once the rest of the world was using $US for global trade, and the US could print and spend all it needed for war, and they increasingly lent it back by buying T-bills, as American manufacturing got offshored, and real interest rates were usually negative, the support for Super Imperialism was in place. 
  The threat to this system is any global trade/reserve currency which does not extract wealth. 
Yes, (energy expensive) Bitcoin could sort of fill this role between central banks, but a gold-backed central bank currency could do it better, and they are in beta testing. Every country would again be subject to balance-of-payments-in-gold discipline. 
It was the Vietnam War that decisively drained US gold, though it really began in Korea.

US Coverup Of Syria Massacre Shows The Danger Of The Assange Precedent, Caitlin Johnstone
...The report contains many significant revelations, including that the US military has been grossly undercounting the numbers of civilians killed in its airstrikes and lying about it to Congress, that special ops forces in Syria have been consistently ordering airstrikes which kill noncombatants with no accountability by exploiting loopholes to get around rules meant to protect civilians, that units which call in such airstrikes are allowed to do their own assessments grading whether the strikes were justified, that the US war machine attempted to obstruct scrutiny of the massacre “at nearly every step” of the way, and that the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations only investigates such incidents when there is “potential for high media attention, concern with outcry from local community/government, concern sensitive images may get out.”
  “But at nearly every step, the military made moves that concealed the catastrophic strike,” The New York Times reports. “The death toll was downplayed. Reports were delayed, sanitized and classified. United States-led coalition forces bulldozed the blast site. And top leaders were not notified.”
  Journalist Aaron Maté has called the incident “one of the US military’s worst massacres and cover-up scandals since My Lai in Vietnam.”...
  Julian Assange currently sits in Belmarsh Prison waiting to find out if British judges will overturn a lower court’s ruling against his extradition to the United States to be prosecuted under the Espionage Act for journalistic activity which exposed US war crimes. War crimes not unlike those that were just exposed by The New York Times in its reporting on the Baghuz massacre.
  The precedent the US government is trying to set with its persecution of Julian Assange will, if successful, cast a chilling effect over journalism which scrutinizes the US war machine, not just in the United States but around the world. If it can succeed in legally establishing that it can extradite an Australian journalist for publishing information in the public interest about US war crimes, it will have succeeded in legally establishing that it can do that to any journalist anywhere. And you can kiss investigative reporting like this goodbye.

Land Grab for "Climate"? Land Confiscated from Midwestern Farmers , Tessa (fights robots) Lena
  This story is about an event that is extremely important and historically deep. According to Ice Age Farmer, a large amount of land is currently being confiscated from American farmers in the Midwest, using eminent domain. The farmers are given an option to accept a modest compensation and go away “voluntarily”—but if not, they are threatened with the prospect of losing their land anyway under eminent domain.
  This is done to give way to a massive carbon sequestration pipeline (actually, two of them) and processing facilities going through the heart of the Corn Belt. (You guessed it, this is done in the name of “saving the planet.”)
  Notably, the project allegedly requires removing top soil (!!!) in an area spanning thousands of miles—an agriculturally important area—which is, of course, a great way to save the planet!

Dr Mike Yeadon – “The findings that 100% of Covid-19 Vaccine Deaths have been caused by just 5% of the batches produced are unprecedented”
On October 31st we revealed how an investigation of data found in the USA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has revealed that extremely high numbers of adverse reactions and deaths have been reported against specific lot numbers of the Covid-19 vaccines several times, meaning deadly batches of the experimental injections have now been identified...
...As of November 1, 2021, there have been more adverse events reported for the COVID vaccines than for all 70+ vaccines combined since they started tracking adverse events 30 years ago. Thanks Travis.

Games you can play with statistics and graphing to show things in a very obvious way, which happen to be counterfactual...
Is Vaccine Efficacy A Statistical Illusion?

No explanation. Peer reviewed paper about post vaccine myocarditis. Verified data. Well known and credentialed authors. Just retracted from medical journal.

Huh, wuzzat in English, please?
SARS-COV-2 Delta variant displays moderate resistance to neutralizing antibodies and spike protein properties of higher soluble ACE2 sensitivity, enhanced cleavage and fusogenic activity
  SARS-CoV-2 Delta (sub)variant is moderately resistant to neutralizing antibodies produced in response to vaccines targeting January 2020 spike protein, which is most of them, and all of the ones in the US and UK. (This says nothing about enhancement of viral pathogenicity by antibodies to spike protein antibodies or natural antibodies to COVID infection.)
  Finally, the spike proteins of B.1.617 variants are more efficiently cleaved due to the P681R substitution, and the spike of Delta variants exhibited greater sensitivity to soluble ACE2 neutralization, as well as fusogenic activity, which may contribute to enhanced spread of Delta variants.
That means that the things the virus does to attach to and quickly enter a human cell, to begin reproducing, all seem to work better for this sub variant. Several of these things have been shown elsewhere to be enhanced by antibodies to January 2020 SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, such as the cleavage of spike protein after attachment to ACE-2 receptor on cell wall, and "fusogenic activity", which has to do with fusing into and crossing the host cell wall.
  These features were studied using "pseudovruses" not whole virus, so that each feature could be studied in isolation. That is good in one way, seeing what each mutated feature does alone, but it will completely miss the whole package effect of active virus in vaccinated, previously infected, and infection-naive humans. That would be far more complex of a study, and it is sort of going on around us.

A systematic review of cases of CNS demyelination following COVID-19 vaccination 
Demyelinating neurological disease, like multiple sclerosis and transverse myelitis impairs the myelin sheath around nerves, without which they work very poorly or not at all. All types of COVID-19 vaccines can elicit this autoimmune response, more commonly in people who have autoimmune disease, and more commonly after the first vaccine dose. Most of these cases improved with high-dose steroids, the typical treatment.

Transverse Myelitis:  
EU lists rare spinal condition as side-effect of J&J COVID-19 shot

Paresthesia can be numbness, tingling, burning, ants crawling, insect biting, glass cuts, painful pressure or other sensation, without an easily identifiable cause on physical examination. Hyperesthesia is feeling things way too much in an area. It is usually experienced as painful.
  In the latest update on vaccine safety 6 October, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) reported that among the adverse reactions to the Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine there were also cases of parestesia. In particular, as written in the dossier, edited by the Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC), almost 22 thousand cases of parestesia and hypesthesia have been reported out of approximately 1 billion and 220 thousand Pfizer vaccine doses administered in the world.

This is the excellent MATH+ protocol in-hospital. The MASK+ protocol for outpatients is similar, similar to what I have used, and both have been continuously updated, based on clinical results, sinc March of 2020. Dr Marik has been the leader in America of developing therapeutics that work for COVID. He is at University of Eastern Virginia.
  Paul Marik, MD, one of the most highly published critical care physicians in the world and the Director of the ICU at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, was recently prohibited by Sentara Healthcare from administering a range of highly effective COVID-19 treatments to critically ill patients—the same treatments he has successfully used to reduce COVID deaths in the ICU by as much as 50%. The result of the prohibition has been a sharp increase in patient mortality. Because Dr. Marik can no longer stand by while patients needlessly die without proper treatment, he has filed a lawsuit to allow him and his colleagues to administer the combination of FDA-approved drugs and other therapies that has saved thousands of critically ill COVID-19 patients in the last 18 months.

RFK Jr.  In my latest book — “The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health” — I take an in-depth look at the disastrous consequences of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s 50-year reign as America’s public health czar. The book, which will be released Nov. 16, is available now for pre-order.   
"The J. Edgar Hoover of Public Health in America" for over 35 years, starting with AIDS.
  As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci dispenses $6.1 billion in annual taxpayer-provided funding for scientific research.
  The research I conducted for my new book exposes how Fauci’s gargantuan yearly disbursements allow him to dictate the subject, content and outcome of scientific health research across the globe.
  These annual disbursements also allow Fauci to exercise dictatorial control over the army of “knowledge-and-innovation” leaders who populate the “independent” federal panels that approve and mandate drugs and vaccines — including the committees that allowed the Emergency Use Authorization of COVID-19 vaccines.
  Fauci uses the financial clout at his disposal to wield extraordinary influence over hospitals, universities, journals and thousands of influential doctors and scientists — whose careers and institutions he has the power to ruin, advance or reward.
