Rare Opportunities


  We have a window of opportunity to establish kind and sensible changes in our homes and neighborhoods, in our worlds, this spring.
It looks to me like the stresses between great powers are creating something like a gridlock in global power dynamics.
The US looked like it was going to amplify the Ukrainian civil war, but that seemed to fade last week. 
There was some kind of blocking move.

  The big picture is that the post WW-2 western empire of NATO, neocons and neoliberalism is crumbling, because it is now based upon extortion and extraction, not on production. An extractive system is not healthy and vibrant, and it is faced off against the productive alternative offered by China and Eurasian Integration.
The west cannot make any big attack against the weapons of Russia, China and Iran, so there is stalemate.
  Russia, China and Iran, wisely wait for the western empire to keep unraveling. They do not want to become the threat to pull westerners together.
"When your enemy is defeating himself, do not interfere", quoth The Art Of War, by Sun Tzu.
Russia, China and Iran have been through lots of social turmoil, unraveling and resetting in the formative years of their current sets of leaders.
Those leaders are in their primes, more or less, not like the political geriatrics holding the reins of power in the US.
One of the best paths forward is if any threatened assault, like the NATO threats in Ukraine, spoofed in the west as Russian threats, are just quietly blocked.
  A long period of global military stagnation is in our, human, best interests. We can grow gardens. 
I have no new earth-shattering suggestions as the fuel to power industrial civilization steadily depletes.
  Growing gardens, making real, useful relationships with other humans, to help each other and share ideas, and praying for guidance every day are all I have.
That's probably better than it looks on its face, especially if global military stagnation will buy us time. Praying for spiritual guidance in the interests of love and harmony is not the neoliberal-neocon game plan, but the current masters see it as an impotent diversion for us to dabble in.
  I think they don't understand spiritual coordination. 
I'm sort of glad they don't, sides being taken already, but if they did, they would be different people.
  Try praying for guidance to do the right thing for the good of life in our world and see how that goes.
To whom might one pray, to what entity or force?
However you might envision and experience the spirits of truth, cooperation and compassion should work well.
Altruistic prayer for guidance, naturally includes the practitioner of prayer in the eventual benefits, but it is not selfish.
Selfishness is the problem with the current extractive system of the western-petrobuck-empire. 
It's killing the hosts, killing us. It's not us. It eats us. 
It feeds us with one hand while sucking our lifeblood out through needles and tubes.
  We need to work on our little parallel, inefficient, quaint human life support patterns, the ones people used to use in the old days.
We are wired for this kind of human social cooperation to grow food, build barns, make clothes and shell beans.
We're rusty,  but not hopeless, not at all hopeless. 
This is a good moment for hope and action together.

You should get out more. Go get a nasal swab; you need the activity. 
Maybe you'll have 7 negative days and be able to leave the house with a mask.
England to pilot daily Covid tests as way to avoid self-isolation

A War on Touch
... I am tactile. I perceive the world through physical touch. The current war on intimacy and the physical world at large outrages me because it attacks the very foundation of what makes a human life worth living. Plus, it is based on treachery.
​  ​Let me address the famous counter-argument head on: “Hold on hold on, no one is canceling the world, all of this is simply a reaction to the pandemic, don’t you see?”
​  ​No, it is not. We are being lied to. Let me repeat: We are being lied to. We are being lied to, there are signs of fraud all over the place (from censorship to bad statistics to suppressed effective cures to the fact that the “health response” was ready before the pandemic even started).​ ...
​  But look around. Look around through your 2019 eyes. A reminder: nothing in nature has changed. Any virus would be dangerous to some without cures and with unprecedented levels of stress and medical mismanagement.
​  ​And finally, if there were any actual honest science behind the paradigm of imprisoning healthy people, separating families, closing schools, and betraying beloved elders who have died alone in nursing homes—if there were any actual science behind it, I reassure you, there would not be many skeptics. People generally want to do what helps them stay alive.

Evaluating the effects of shelter-in-place policies during the COVID-19 pandemic
  We estimate the effects of shelter-in-place (SIP) orders during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. We do not find detectable effects of these policies on disease spread or deaths. We find small but measurable effects on mobility that dissipate over time. And we find small, delayed effects on unemployment. We conduct additional analyses that separately assess the effects of expanding versus withdrawing SIP orders and test whether there are spillover effects in other states. Our results are consistent with prior studies showing that SIP orders have accounted for a relatively small share of the mobility trends and economic disruptions associated with the pandemic. We reanalyze two prior studies purporting to show that SIP orders caused large reductions in disease prevalence, and show that those results are not reliable. Our results do not imply that social distancing behavior by individuals, as distinct from SIP policy, is ineffective.  

​This happened in a vibrant and rapidly growing economy, not a crumbling, parasitized economy, with the owners fearful of losing control of us.
Niall Ferguson: How Ike's 1950s America Beat The 'Asian Flu' With Science & Common Sense
​  ​In 1957, the U.S. rose to the challenge of the ‘Asian flu’ with stoicism and a high tolerance for risk, offering a stark contrast with today’s approach to Covid-19...
...1957 also saw the outbreak of one of the biggest pandemics of the modern era. Not coincidentally, another hit of that year was “Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu” by Huey “Piano” Smith & the Clowns.
​  ​When seeking historical analogies for Covid-19, commentators have referred more often to the catastrophic 1918-19 “Spanish influenza” than to the flu pandemic of 1957-58. Yet the later episode deserves to be much better known, not just because the public health threat was a closer match to our own but because American society at the time was better prepared—culturally, institutionally and politically—to deal with it.

​As you well know., and not a sign of strength, at all...  (Russian alert)
Twitter isn’t censoring accounts to keep users ‘safe’, it is using its power to spoon-feed the world establishment narratives
​  ​Last week, Simon Goddek, who has a PhD in biotechnology and researches system dynamics, tweeted a link to a scientific study titled, “Is a Mask That Covers the Mouth and Nose Free from Undesirable Side Effects in Everyday Use and Free of Potential Hazards?”
​  ​Some time later, his account was frozen and he received a notice from Twitter that it would remain frozen until he deleted the offending tweet, and for the 12 hours following that.

Former UN Employee's Brave Mission,  "Be the drop that tips the bucket."
​  ​After I started speaking up, I discovered so many brave and outspoken people that my heart is filled with gratitude to all of you.
One of my new friends is Mary Otto-Chang.

Mary is a former employee of the United Nations who had a very gratifying and respectable career there.
Then 2020 happened—and like many of us, she started looking into the Great Reset and 4IR agenda—and was so appalled by it that she felt the urge to act.
Mary then created a communication campaign to educate UN employees, government workers and citizens of Canada in general about the Great Reset agenda and the 4IR, in the language that is easy to digest. She went for it as a solo warrior, a move that takes some guts. Currently, she is reaching out to people—including in the UN—bringing their attention to what really is going on.

​John Ward looks at Bill and Melinda's DIVORCE as analogous to other stuff...
​  The fiscal and financial Left Field is complex and crowded: the scheme to hide further wealth transfer and control behind climate emergency and viral pandemic sounds very neat on paper, but in real life the chronic debt, rising inflation, precious metals, EU bankruptcy, French faillite and increasingly wobbly Covid19 narrative point to a potential swarm of chaos.
  Divorcees have a habit of forming seemingly unlikely new relationships. No option for alliance – good or bad – should be dismissed out of hand…..nor, I suspect, will it be.

("Sultan") Erdogan's Turkey is not picking a side, but is taking the best deals from Russia and the US, and NATO and Ukraine (and has been dealing quietly with Iran, we know), and is also asserting Turkish leadership and autonomy. 
Turkey is at a critical crossroads for pipelines, people, shipping and cultures. Greece was there, Byzantium, and currently the neo-Ottoman Erdogan. It is a critical and rapidly-evolving position.  In a great power stalemate, Turkey chooses to advance quickly.

80% of people who test positive for SARS-CoV-2 in their noses have mild illness. That appears to be due to about 80% of people having significant crossover resistance to COVID, stored in their cellular immunity, in T-cells, from prior infections with other endemic coronavirus strains. Those people basically keep the virus from entering their bloodstreams, where it does not belong, and can cause great harm. The virus attacks the lining of the blood vessels, causing inflammation, clots and lod=ss of blood supply to useful organs like the brain, heart and kidneys.
3 studies now show that even the spike protein alone, in the bloodstream, is inflammatory and causes clots and injury.
​  ​One of the most important pathologies, is hypercoagulation and microclots in the lungs of patients. Here we study the effect of isolated SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 subunit as potential inflammagen sui generis. Using scanning electron and fluorescence microscopy as well as mass spectrometry, we investigate the potential of this inflammagen to interact with platelets and fibrin(ogen) directly to cause blood hypercoagulation. Using platelet poor plasma (PPP), we show that spike protein may interfere with blood flow.
It's a good thing nobody is trying to inject spike proteins into us, isn't it?
Some of us have inadvertently chosen to make spike proteins in-house and have strokes, paralysis, brain-clots and other undesired things.
If you don't want to do this, don't accept genetic injections which will make your body do this.  Thanks Jeremy

​It is estimated by epidemiologists that something like 1-2% of adverse events from COVID vaccines are reported in the US. It is an amazingly cumbersome, disquieting system that has stages of induction of the "I'd better stop now" feeling. Here is some conjecture about what real adr=verse events and deaths figures might look like. Thanks again, Jeremy.
