Genocidal Social Mentality

 Disobeying Orders,​

​  A friend, ​Phoenixvoice quoted Hannah Arendt​, who she has been reading, trying to comprehend totalitarianism.​
​  ​“Under conditions of total terror not even fear can any longer serve as an advisor of how to behave, because terror chooses its victims without reference to individual actions or thoughts, exclusively in accordance with the objective necessity of the natural or historical process. 
​    ​[​Arendt​ has just spent the last few paragraphs talking about how totalitarianism follows a “natural” or “historical” process.] 
Under totalitarian conditions, fear probably is more widespread than ever before; but fear has lost its practical usefulness when actions guided by it can no longer help to avoid the dangers man fears. The same is true for sympathy or support of the regime; for total terror not only selects it victims according to objective standards; it chooses its executioners with as complete a disregard as possible for the candidate’s convictions and sympathies.”

​  I​​t seems that Hannah Arendt is saying that totalitarianism is a different ​human-group paradigm, where everybody does as they are told, including killing other people,​unquestioningly, feeling the fear and stress and turning off their inner moral guidance, the voice of god and conscience.​ ​("Well, we are at war.")​

​  ​If we take this as an alternate human-setting, and we look at history, we can see that this setting was active in wartimes, and those times that we always had a hard time understanding how people could do all those horrific and crazy things.

​  ​People who have drunk of the excitement of mass team sports might understand the rioting of fans afterwards, and might get a feeling for massed battles of crowds, and lynch mobs.

​  ​Maybe we have to understand the mindset within totalitarian times as being something humanly useful for those kinds of times. It leads to mass killing of humans, which seems to be “the objective necessity of the natural or historical process”.

​  ​Perhaps that is the function of this setting in humans, to reduce the population at times until it is completed. Who/what decides? Must there be a human Fuhrer?

​  ​“Science” the faceless god seems to be cast in that role this time, mostly for people who don’t understand scientific method, or who see it as secondary to power.

​  ​I have never been wired to feast on crowd-energy. I am a scientist, and it comes naturally to me, and I do not crave power, but like camaraderie and friendship.

​  ​I was recently criticized for using “zetigeist” to mean a living ​conscious and intentional ​form in the collective mind, rather than a stylistic epoch or wave tied to a time.

​  ​I don’t really have another word for that. It seems to me that mass-consciousness is not necessarily blind, can be ruthlessly destructive or powerfully good and beneficent. People can answer calls to righteousness​,​ and ​also ​to killing their very neighbors. It keeps happening.
They said that in Rwanda it was not really Hutu and Tutsis​ killing each other​, but people whose kids went to school barefoot killing people whose children wore shoes to school.

​  ​I’m ​postulating​ that we, as a species, seem to have factory settings that kick in at critical times, which are completely invisible at other times, repeatedly apparent in history, and ​subsequently misunderstood and misrepresented to students and citizens who come later.

​  ​Sociopaths ​might thrive​ in these phases, feel right at home, but ​sociopaths ​also get culled.
​I speculate that w​e may have ​such "wartime"​ settings because we do not have natural predators other than sociopaths, and there must be some mechanism to reduce our numbers when we outgrow our environmental support system.

​  ​It may be that people who resonate to these wavelengths are more susceptible to the killing and being killed, though it can obviously reach out and touch anybody.

​  ​I feel that I have different settings​. I​ have felt for my whole life that I would need to make it through a time like this​. I felt ​that I needed to learn from my Grandfather who ​was in both world wars and raised a family in the Great Depression. I felt that I​ needed to really understand…

​  ​If we are dividing into human groups with different settings for times of “selection events” or “herd culling” or “world war”, then maybe we need to reconsider history this way. The herd splits into clumps that behave differently, in synchrony, like a murmur of Starlings, and some members of the herd split away, maybe ​to ​congregate elsewhere in smaller groups.

​  ​​People now are so broadly unable to employ their rational processes for simple​ ​preservation​ of themselves and their families​ lately. 
We seem to be living in different worlds, and going forward into different worlds. 
I don’t feel like I can try to convince anybody who is living in that other world where COVID vaccines are good, protect you, protect the children, and​  "​everybody needs to trust Dr. Fauci and get behind the science”.

BRICS is turning into a collective "Non West"   (Lots to consider here)
..For various reasons, both Iran and Argentina are extremely interested in BRICS projects to create new international settlement systems that are alternative to the global hegemony of the dollar. Iran, which is under sanctions, life itself has forced to go to “de-dollarization”, the country practically does not use the US currency. For Argentina, the transition to a hypothetical new monetary and financial zone would mean an escape from the stranglehold of the IMF, from the pressure of American creditors, which today have an extremely destructive impact on the national economy.
​  In any case, against the background of aggressive pressure from the United States and its allies on potential new BRICS members, the desire of Iran and Argentina to join the community requires a certain amount of foreign policy courage...

  ​I am having a very hard time finding more on this story from 7/1/22. 
Commission to Allow Russia to Resume Transports to Kaliningrad
The European Commission plans to issue a clarification that will allow Russia to resume sending supplies to the exclave of Kaliningrad via Lithuania. Berlin supports the idea, but some in Vilnius are not pleased.

Germany seizes Russian LNG tankers​   
(Russians are not commenting, seeking to negotiate again, I suspect, avoiding ​provocations​ when possible.)
Germany has assumed control of three liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers that belong to Russian energy major Gazprom, Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reported on Thursday citing maritime operator Dynagas LNG.​..
..Gazprom Germania, which used to operate some of Germany’s largest natural gas storage facilities, was taken over by Berlin several weeks ago as part of Ukraine-related sanctions on Russia. In response, Gazprom stopped supplying gas to the company, which resulted in liquidity problems and jeopardized the work of key gas retailers in Germany and the UK.

​  Erdogan never rolls-over-and-plays-dead. 
Erdogan Says Sweden, Finland NATO Bids Could Still Be Blocked If Vows Not Kept
  “First Sweden and Finland must fulfill their duties and those are already in the text … But if they don’t fulfill these, then of course there is no way we would send it to our parliament,” he added.
  What appears to be the most important issue for Erdogan is that Finland and Sweden agree to extradite suspected PKK members. He claimed Sweden agreed to extradite 73 people, although a leaked version of the memorandum did not say that. “Sweden promised to give us these 73 people with this text. They may or they may not, we will follow that through the text and we will make our decision.” ...
(This looks different from what Erdogan thinks was said.)
​..​Concerning extradition, the memorandum said that Sweden and Finland agreed to address Turkey’s “pending deportation or extradition requests expeditiously and thoroughly.” The Nordic nations also agreed to “establish necessary bilateral legal frameworks to facilitate extradition and security cooperation with Turkey.”

  Donetsk and Luhansk Republics are the likely source of this grain impounded by Turkey for inspection. "Stealing grain from Ukraine" is the charge. It's definitional.
Turkey detains Russian-flagged vessel carrying grain
..Ukraine then asked Turkey to “conduct an inspection of this sea vessel, seize samples of grain for forensic examination” to determine its origin, and expressed its readiness to launch a joint investigation with the Turkish authorities.​ 
(It should be easy to ​read​ the little "made in" stamp on each grain with a microscope, right?)

​  Spartacus presents a long and detailed case thatCOVID-19 gene-therapy "vaccines" are a bioweapon, just as the lab virus is, but with longer-term implications.​
(Summary)  From all these assembled facts, we have put together a hypothesis. There is a global conspiracy by Neo-Malthusians to cull the world's population with a lethal amyloidogenic and autoimmune-reaction-inducing toxin mischaracterized as a vaccine. To pacify the survivors, who would otherwise be horrified at the genocide of their neighbors, this is accompanied by another, directly related and concurrent plot to mind-control millions or billions of human beings worldwide, with advanced in-body surveillance and brain manipulation technology developed at DARPA-affiliated laboratories and elsewhere.
  This was to be accomplished by engineering a pandemic pathogen, creating a climate of terror around it using psychological warfare and psychological torture techniques, and then despotically mandating yearly or bi-yearly vaccinations for it, incorporating whatever formulations of new culling, tracking and manipulation technology the conspirators wished. This was to be incorporated into existing Internet of Things networks as a form of “Smart Grid” for monitoring all human activity in cities, worldwide, altering human behavior, and manipulating public opinion and rendering existing political systems utterly moot, as part of an overall initiative towards engineering “Smart Cities”.

Trickle Down Inflation

 Informed That It's Raining,

  Michael Hudson has a new interview out, with a transcript, which is long, brilliant, but mostly in flashes of brilliance which are hard to capture without all of the other things being said. I'll try to restate some of the points he makes. 
  Inflation is not as it is modeled in economics classes, but economists have to pretend that it is a battle between paying workers too much and imposing unemployment on them to reduce wages. (Otherwise economists don't get a paycheck.)
  A statistic is quoted in the question that 58% of inflation comes from corporate (rentier) profits. Hudson does not dispute that, but points out that only 8% of corporate profits are recycled into productive investments, 92% go into things like stock buybacks and offshoring of funds to hide "profits", because no successful company has profits any more. 
  Profits are taxable. Hudson points out several mechanisms to eliminate rentier-value-extraction loopholes, which would make productive investments better by comparison. Right now, the western business model is to extract value as profit, both "at home" and abroad, which whittles productive industry down at home, and extracts value from countries abroad, value they cannot invest in infrastructure or serving the needs of their citizens. Stock buybacks at home make capital-gains, while gutting productive capacity. Abroad, the model is to lend at high interest, then foreclose on the factory or other assets when they can't pay the loan. Not-paying-the-loan is a gift from the Fed, which jacks up interest rates just going into economic downturns and makes things like the Asian Economic Crisis. 
  This cycle is just going into that default-asset-stripping phase, and should be a doozie, unless all of the debtor-countries default and join Russia, China, BRICS, Eurasian Economic Union and friends. 
  This never happened before (1978), but it is finally possible for it to happen this time because there is a critical mass of economies , resources and production that would benefit from defaulting on $US debt and joining a new system, with Equity Investment, not financial asset-stripping, enforced by US/NATO., and they've spent 14 years quietly preparing.They are going to use each other's money, gold, and commodities like oil and sugar to back their new trade currency.
Pass the popcorn, please.!
  Trickle down inflation has been happening when central banks make trillions of dollars of loans at negative real interest rates to big financial institutions that have been robbing everybody right and left and still going bankrupt because that is their strong point and they are really way more corrupt than that internally.
  The trillions of dollars of give-away money, and buying up all of the junk mortgages for trillions more, so the prices stay high, and the pretending can go on. 
Eventually this makes prices of real things go high and stay high, like $600,000 houses that were $15,000 houses when they were built, and really need some repairs.   Can't really afford to buy the house we evicted you from? We'll just rent it to you, until we have to evict you again. 
  That's the miracle of trickle-down inflation. Putting people out of jobs won't fix this kind of inflation, because the big money goes to the big players who are not just not-making stuff, but making everybody else stop-making-stuff. 
More money, and less stuff is inflation, and this is the new way it happens. 
All of the western retirement investments are in this snake-eating-itself economy.
The Ponzi keeps working as long as there is enough faith in the system to keep the funds and imports coming in from the whole world.
("!0, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, ....")
  "Equity Investing" is the competing system. The lender takes a stake in the project, and does well when the project does well. The lender does not take everything and sell it if the project has a slow start or a bad year. This is actually "moral". "Economics" used to be taught under "Morality Studies150 years ago. How Quaint!   Even that weird relic "Islamic Finance" considers this to be the ideally moral form of lending. No wonder Iran wants to join up. 
Saudi Arabia won't get suckered like that, will they? Will they? (What's the counter-offer, President Joe?)

Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov gave a talk at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. I've picked out 2 statements.
(This first statement says that they have gotten the framework set to bypass dollar trade, and need to implement it with each country putting in national currency.)
​  ​A firm basis has been created for promoting economic interaction within the SCO. It is necessary to work hard to put the existing plans into practice and implement concrete measures intended to ensure food, transport and energy security, develop remote and rural territories, strengthen inter-regional ties, carry out digital transformation, and introduce high technologies and innovations.  It will be of use to approve, as expected, a roadmap on increasing the share of national currencies in mutual payments.​..
(This​ statement appears to say that they have the vast legal and contractual framework already worked out. That has been a lot of work.)
​  ​A vast legal and contractual infrastructure, a huge human and resource potential, multilevel practical mechanisms and the accumulated rich experience of multifaceted cooperation remain a guarantee of the SCO’s further strengthening
(Here Lavrov lists the membership-rules-of-engagement of the newer, more egalitarian world order.​ This is statist/nationalist.​ "Mind your own business!")
​  ​Amid the continuing tectonic shifts in world politics and the economy, our Organisation can and must become one of the core elements of a new, more just and democratic polycentric world order based on the UN Charter, the principles of sovereign equality of all states, non-interference in internal affairs, and equal and indivisible security.

Law In A Multipolar World, Vladimir Putin​:​   Address to Plenary Session, 10th St Petersburg International Legal Forum.​  ​(Excerpted)
​  ​Participants at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum recently discussed the most relevant political, financial, technological and cultural issues on the global agenda; many of these issues directly related to international lawIt is important that you continue this conversation within this forum and discuss important topics like Law in a Multipolar World. ​ 
​  ​It is true, a multipolar system of international relations is now being formed. It is an irreversible process; it is happening before our eyes and is objective in nature. The position of Russia and many other countries is that this democratic, more just world order should be built on the basis of mutual respect and trust, and, of course, on the generally accepted principles of international law and the UN Charter.
​  ​At the same time, it is being said that law cannot adequately respond to the problems and challenges of today, to today’s turbulent and fundamental changes. There are also more radical assessments that the idea of international law is being dismantled. I fundamentally disagree with these conclusions.​..
..Crises happen not because law is faulty, but because of attempts to replace law with dictate, and international standards with the national jurisdiction of certain states or groups of states in a deliberate refusal to follow essential legal principles – justice, conscientiousness, equality and humanity...
(Neoliberal financial colonialism​ and piracy​ must go!)
..Some states are not ready to accept losing their supremacy on the international stage, and they are striving to preserve the unjust unipolar model. Under the guise of what they call order based on rules, and other questionable concepts, they try to control and direct global processes at their own discretion, and hold to a course of creating closed blocs and coalitions that make decisions for the benefit of one country, the United States of AmericaThe natural rights of others in international relations are being ignored; the fundamental principle of indivisibility of security is being used selectively. The West’s unilateral, illegitimate sanctions against sovereign states have reached an unprecedented scale.
  I will add that the countries that advocate their own exceptionalism also overstep the law and cross out such concepts as inviolability of property and freedom of speech in their own domestic policy as well...

..We are focused on joining efforts on crucial issues like the climate agenda, fighting famine, providing stability in food and energy markets, and fair rules in international trade and competition.
  All of these areas require appropriate and flexible legal regulation and meticulous cooperation...
(Historically, legal frameworks are good for a couple of generations, then get degraded when the founders pass away.)
..I am confident that, by consistently following international law and joining our efforts, it is possible to resolve the most difficult problems that the world is facing and to provide for the stable, sustainable and progressive development of all states.

Pepe Escobar, You're either with us or you're a "systemic challenge"
​  ​Fast but not furious, the Global South is revving up. The key takeaway of the BRICS+ summit in Beijing,  held in sharp contrast with the G7 in the Bavarian Alps, is that both West Asia’s Iran and South America’s Argentina officially applied for BRICS membership.​..
..For the NATO/G7 combo, the leaders of the emerging multipolar world as well as the vast swathes of the Global South that want to join in, are a “systemic challenge”.
​  ​Turkiye under the Sultan of Swing – Global South in spirit, tightrope walker in practice – got literally everything it wanted to magnanimously allow Sweden and Finland to clear their paths on the way to being absorbed by NATO.
​  ​Bets can be made on what kind of shenanigans NATO navies will come up with in the Baltics against the Russian Baltic Fleet, to be followed by assorted business cards distributed by Mr. Khinzal, Mr. Zircon, Mr. Onyx and Mr. Kalibr, capable of course of annihilating any NATO permutation, including “decision centers”.
​  ​So it came as a sort of perverse comic relief when Roscosmos released a set of quite entertaining satellite images pinpointing the coordinates of those “decision centers”.

​After a generation, I personally expect China to approach "more equal" status in this new multipolar order, as the US did after WW-2/Bretton-Woods.​
​China Daily: ​BRICS steering development into new era
​  ​BRICS provides an alternative mode of financing for development, is a platform for South-South cooperation, a game changer in the North-South dialogue, and a balancing mechanism in the context of building a fair global economic order.
​  ​The just-concluded BRICS Summit, chaired by China, was the 14th since 2009.​..
..​The NDB​ (National Development Bank)​, the "BRICS Plus" mechanism and the inclusion of new members are three significant directions for the future development of BRICS.
​  ​The NDB, a core part of the BRICS mechanism, has turned a forum into an institution. The NDB does not impose harsh conditions while providing infrastructure financing for the member states or other emerging market and developing economies. Internally, the NDB is a platform for better integration of resources of the BRICS countries, enlarging the effect of investments. Externally, the NDB brings the member states and other developing countries closer, and promotes mutual development.​..
..​This year is ideal to talk BRICS' expansion, because it's been five years since ("most equal"?) ​China proposed to start the expansion process. Although explorations and procedures continue, unofficially the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Nigeria, Senegal, Kazakhstan, Indonesia, Argentina and Thailand are among the countries that could join the grouping.

​There is some statistical margin of error. figure these USA numbers could be half, or double, for instance.
Survey: More Than 750,000 Dead, 30 Million Injured Because of Covid Vax

The Ex Post Facto Mindset of the Predator, The Ethical Skeptic  (These mechanisms appear to hold well for narcissists, too: Trudeau, Biden, Macron, BoJo, etc. They just can't back down until there is some big excuse that makes them "victims".) 
​  ​The predator does not think in terms of what actions will serve to clarify, add value, nor alleviate suffering or risk (ethical skepticism). The pathological predator (fake skeptic, debunker, troll, stalker, virtue signaler, pedophile, groomer, exploiter, thief, abuser, poison purveyor, science poseur, and Party apparatchik) thinks in terms of weakness and identifying a party whom they can harm. The sociopath predator allows a third-party agency which co-occupies their mind, to dictate their thinking for them – egging them onward and simultaneously then accusing and justifying them thereafter. Such torment mandates the keeping of appearances. Accordingly, the sociopath is often a person who is well-groomed in terms of social affability and acceptable protocol.

Rules Based Oligarchy

 Subjects of Empire,

  I include this story as a perspective piece. This same ruling oligarchy remains in power today, after 54 years of consolidating that power. 
RFK Jr is like his Dad, but 26 years older than dad lived to be. He knows all of this information. He fights honorably for truth, knowing that he may "die funny" some day.

​  ​New Evidence Implicates CIA, LAPD, FBI and Mafia as Plotters in Elaborate “Hit” Plan to Prevent RFK From Ever Reaching White House
..In a 2018 interview with The Washington Post, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., said that he traveled to meet with Sirhan at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional facility in San Diego County, and, after a relatively lengthy conversation, believed that Sirhan did not kill his father and that a second gunman was involved.
​  ​Kennedy Jr.’s view is shared by his sister, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, and by Paul Schrade, regional director of the United Auto Workers (UAW) and one of Bobby’s closest advisers, who was shot the night that he was killed.
​  ​In 2016, Schrade testified in support of Sirhan’s parole, stating his belief that a second shooter killed Kennedy and that Sirhan was intended to be a distraction from the real gunman by an unknown conspiracy.
​  ​Kennedy Jr. has pointed out that Sirhan’s appointed lawyer at his original trial, Grant Cooper, was Johnny Rosselli’s personal lawyer. “Roselli,” he said, “was the mobster who ran the assassination program for the CIA against Castro. Cooper pressured Sirhan to plead guilty so that there was no trial.”
​  ​Kennedy believes the real assassin was Thane Eugene Cesar, an employee of Lockheed’s Burbank facility—which manufactured the CIA produced U-2 spy plane—and previously Hughes Aircraft who was moonlighting as a security guard for Ace Security Services.
After the shooting, Kennedy Sr. was photographed with Cesar’s clip-on tie next to him, which he had apparently yanked off.

​Pepe Escobar makes increasingly unflattering (to the west) comparisons:​
Behind the Tin Curtain: BRICS+ vs NATO/G7
..there now exists what should be called a Tin Curtain, fabricated by the fearful, clueless, collective west, via G7 and NATO: this time, to essentially contain the integration of the Global South...

​This is what a "good day" looks like for NATO these days.
​  Hours after Turkey’s announcement yesterday that it would support Finland’s and Sweden’s accession to NATO, Alliance Secretary – General Jens Stoltenberg called this morning (Wednesday) at the annual conference in Madrid to unite and expedite the process of joining. At the same time, he attacked Russia and China, claiming that Russia posed a “direct threat” to NATO.

Understanding the New York Times Article on the CIA in Ukraine
​  ​When you read some so-called bombshell report dishing the dirt on some Top Secret U.S. operation in the New York Times or the Washington Post, you need to understand that this was not the result of some intrepid, eager beaver reporter who took the initiative and came up with a nifty idea for a story. Such stories are based on official or sanctioned leaks and always have an ulterior motive...
​..​Got that? The most acute problem is that the best Ukrainian troops are dead, wounded or captured. There are no first rate troops left to train
Oh my. That is a problem and the United States is not going to put any of our troops into harms way. 
That is, for now, the Biden Administration’s policy. 
Putting “modern special operations teams” on the ground to train Ukrainians is, per the NY Times piece, too great a risk and carries a price that is not worth the outcome.

The same American families who liked Hitler so well, like the Bushes and Harrimans, are still our oligarchs. Western financiers and industrialists took-down the Tsar  by funding the insurrectionists and the Bolsheviks, but "lost" Russia to Stalin during WW-2. 
They need Russia's vast resources now, more than ever, as western finance implodes.
Lavrov gets it right by comparing European Union and NATO to Hitler’s old Axis

​Ilargi at The Automatic Earth:  The Entire World Order Has Changed
..And we now know that they won’t be BRICS for much longer. Many countries choose to be affiliated, in one form or another, with the BRICS rather than the “west”. They see that Russia is winning in Ukraine, and they see the damage the sanctions do. It’s just practical considerations. Saudi Arabia and Argentina are interested in joining BRICS. So are Uruguay, Iran, Egypt, Thailand, and a number of post-Soviet States. They see where the real economic power resides.
  It’s amusing to see that for this week’s G7 in Germany, the host country has “invited the leaders of India, Indonesia, Senegal, Argentina and South Africa to the summit..” They will not join the G7 instead of the BRICS. Why would they? The world is moving away from unipolar US/NATO power. And as Russia and China have repeatedly said, this move is irreversible. It’s all because of what happens in Ukraine.

Economic Truths

 Trickled Upon,

  Driving to Yoakum with Jenny, Friday night, I was thinking that we need an economics based on facts, something with more predictive-value than "the Fed's got your back", which is the rationale of the risk-asset Ponzi scheme instituted in early 2009. 
Any workable economic model has to be based upon the actual "costs" of energy, since energy powers all production, communication, storage and transportation.

  Energy "costs" are presently expressed in monetary terms, but money verges upon "undefined". Energy extraction costs energy. The EROI (energy return on energy invested) used to be as high as 100:1 for crude oil in the USA in the 1930s. For tar sands in Canada and Venezuela it is now about 3:1 , whereas it may be above 30 for some of the easily-extracted oil in Iran and Iraq. It is about 10:1 for wind and solar, though other problems with timing, transmission and network costs arise. Coal has an EROI of around 46, which is lower due to cheap strip mining, even though the quality of the coal keeps declining. This paper goes into EROI as an analytic tool for energy sources.

  Economy runs on the energy remaining after energy is "produced" in a directly usable form, like electricity or diesel fuel, which are high quality energy for manufacturing and transportation. 3 times as much coal is needed to put into a generator, which must exist and be maintained, to get one energy unit of electricity. Natural gas generation plants can turn on and off faster to keep the grid up when demand is high, but the plants still need to be made and maintained at significant cost. Europe has been used to high quality Russian oil and gas, for which their economy and infrastructure is specialized. They will have a higher cost using energy from other sources, due to transport and mismatch to infrastructure.

  The energy costs of building solar cells and wind turbines are borne by fossil-fuel and mining economy. Neodymium, a rare-earth element, needed for efficient magnets in motors and generators, is very destructive to mine and refine. The environmental cost of a Toyota Prius or Nissan Leaf exceeds that of a Toyota Matrix over its lifetime of use, which is fairly well reflected in its inclusive lifetime cost. This is a case where monetary cost does reflect environmental and embedded-energy ("Emergy") costs.

  I have often returned to this theme that we should invest any surplus of wealth we now have into things which will help provide for our needs in the future of less and more expensive fuel. I addressed this in "Surplus Energy Economy" July 4, 2020.
The article was from "Surplus Energy Economics" blog, which I last referenced on the 5th of this month  .

  I'll be referring to this blog more frequently, as it provides the best analytical model for economics that I have been able to find, even though it is much less worked out than classical, or "neo-classical", "neoliberal" economics. Classical economics did look at efficiency of social-economy and valued the reduction of value extraction through "rent collection". "Neoclassical" and "neoliberal" economic models say that rent-collection is just as valuable as growing wheat; no-difference, nd that money-moving in credit card debt penalty charges is of the same economic value as money moving for natural gas to power kitchen stoves and on-demand electrical power plants for peak-load. 

  The predictive value of neoliberal economics is worse than nothing, because it is based upon a false and misleading premise, which has always been supported by rent-collecting wealth-interests, the "Rentier" capitalists. "GDP", gross domestic product replaced "GNP", gross national product, which was a manufacturing index,based on industrial production. Gross National Product would have better reflected classical economic theory if it had subtracted rents from industrial outputs, but at least it didn't add them in as wealth-created.

  Thermoeconomics has long been used in industrial processes like making-cement and refining oil. We can look at broad thermoeconomic  predictions more effectively than we can look at narrow specifics, except when we get to completely narrowed specifics in the efficiencies of a particular manufacturing process.

"In The Eye Of The Perfect Storm" is the latest primer from Surplus Energy Economics.

  Industrial economy, "real economy" has "gone into reverse". It is not just growing more slowly. It has begun contracting, despite infusion of debt-money, which is promises made on future economic production. Future economic production is estimated to keep growing at 3.5% per year after it gets past the current bad patches of COVID-pandemic and War-in-Ukraine, but that 3.5% growth is already a false assessment. For the decade of 2009-2019 it was more like 1.3%, or even less, based on "prosperity" growth, real-economic growth. That lagged behind population growth in most places, though Chinese prosperity did advance per capita. Prosperity per capita has been in a 20 year decline in places like the US and UK. My personal assessment is that peak industrial economy occurred around Summer 2018. This article shows a carbon-emission peak around early 2019. 

  The banking repo-crisis in September 2019 reflected the inability of the biggest banks in the world to trust each other on overnight loans with US-Treasury debt as collateral, a systemic failure. The Fed stepped in to take on this function, pumping an estimated $2 trillion of promises of future wealth into the financial system before the end of 2019, as preparations for COVID-pandemic and financial direct-infusions to banking were both worked out in meetings in mid October 2019, on the same dates in New York, and the Wuhan (military olympic) Games were commencing.
  Through a thermoeconomics lens of real-economic contraction, which cannot be honestly reconciled with perpetual-growth economic theory, these events suggest narratives for crisis-management, while keeping the broken model of perpetual growth economy.  Fiat-money promises future wealth for financial investment today, but those promises cannot be kept in real terms. The divergence can be seen in these graphs:

  "Discretionary spending" is what is left over after essentials are purchased. This includes investments. As real prosperity contracts, especially per capita, discretionary spending falls fastest, since we all must buy food, fuel and housing first. We can see that all of the graphs that diverge from the blue of "prosperity" will have to collapse to meet that reality. GDP can be modified back to something more like GNP (better yet, with parasitic draws subtracted). Debt is something on the order of 10X real-economy, and real-economy is projected to keep contracting going forward, so this debt cannot even be "serviced" at some point in the near future. Interest rates are rising to defend the status of the $US currency, the basis of the western financial system, but that will cause massive defaults in debts. Pensions, to the degree that they are funded, are mostly funded through financial assets, stocks and bonds, which have been bid-up since 2009 in the "everything bubble", where "the Fed had your back". During the years of 2019 through to the present, there has been a further massive loss of ownership in the economy, except at the bllionaire level, where massive acquisition of productive assets has taken place. This has been the biggest wealth transfer ever, to the richest few elites, and coming before what must be the biggest financial crash ever, if financial reckoning is to approach reality, which it must.

  The rest of the world has long undergone resource-extraction by the $US, trading real economic outputs for "printed" dollars, which they then spend on other real economic output, as the value of those dollars slowly fades away. The $US is a faith-based currency, based upon faith that $US will still buy things in 5-10 years, with a certain, mild lossiness (2% inflation "target"). Faith in the $US is more important for the owner class than continuing the current Ponzi scheme, so $US value must be supported first. For $US instruments and debts to approach reality, the losses of asset-value will be most readily accomplished through a stock-market crash and bond crash. It looks like 90% is the right order of magnitude. Commercial debt will also default, and consumers will default on much of their debt. Countries that don't print their own currencies will default. Pensions will be unfunded, and this will be addressed in the context of falling real economy, which makes pensions seem unrealistic.

  The financialized west has the biggest problem here, since the postwar social contract has been based upon retirement security. The easiest thing for the financiers would be if most people would die before collecting their pensions. This has been brought up in the context of COVID-19, and of COVID-vaccine-products increasing mortality and appearing to progressively weaken immune systems against other infections and cancer-surveillance, destroying newly-mutated pre-cancerous cells before they grow into cancers. Famine is being staged throughout the world now, as is a war which is really between the 2 most nuclear-armed militaries in the world, with Ukraine as a proxy for the US/NATO. 

  The possibilities for elimination of any number of humans are all on the table, and the possibility for economically constraining or eliminating any single human is being worked on. In China, which is having a banking crisis, lockdowns kept people from going to their banks, and when lifted, health-passes turned RED when people traveled to their banks, so they had to return home, and could not get money or answers.

EU Renews Digital Covid Pass Despite 99% Negative Public Feedback

  In the EU, we see Germany and other countries opening up the mothballed coal-fired power plants (highest EROI, highest pollution). "This is a temporary measure because of the war". The war justifies whatever needs to be done, without the admission of having lied. 
The World Is Failing In Both Energy Affordability And Climate Goals

​  Can the same people who lied announce that they lied? Probably not. It would be a new thing. The development of a new global trade currency, based upon commodities (real economic production), and independent of "siegniorage" benefits to a country printing fiat-currency, would free all other countries of paying that particular economic rent. That currency would offer a parallel economic option, which would allow countries to default on $US debt, and also to tell foreign oil and mining companies that they no-longer had any claims on wells and mines, that those now belonged to the people of Venezuela, Iran and Peru, for instance.

  The threat to any country repudiating $US debt and foreign-ownership of national-resources and assets is the US/NATO military alliance, which does not "win" much lately, but inflicts severe pain and hardship upon countries like Iraq, Syria, Libya, Iran and Venezuela, whch fail to subordinate their national interests to the western financial empire.

  The War in Ukraine continues to erode that threat. It is seen that western industry is no longer able to sustain the full production to supply a major war, as it did in Korea and Vietnam. Russian industry seems completely capable of this.

The Return of Industrial Warfare
.. In short, US annual artillery production would at best only last for 10 days to two weeks of combat in Ukraine. If the initial estimate of Russian shells fired is over by 50%, it would only extend the artillery supplied for three weeks.
  The US is not the only country facing this challenge. In a recent war game involving US, UK and French forces, UK forces exhausted national stockpiles of critical ammunition after eight days.

  Venezuela has been granted a special dispensation to sell heavy crude to Germany, which has one refinery that can be configured to refine it. (Venezuela still does not get the national gold back from London, though.)  This can be decreed by the US because the US Navy does effectively rule the ocean shipping lanes. How long the control of shipping lanes by the "Atlanticist" powers may continue is in question. If the $US loses primacy suddenly, this will be unaffordable. In a longer monetary/trade contest, the US Navy would be a priority. 
This book review states the case for waning US naval dominance.    

  The faith-based global financial system must retain the faith of the wealthy elites, not only workers saving for retirement. The G-7 countries have just banned buying Russian gold, but Switzerland is not a mamber, and there is still no accounting for who took delivery of over 3 tons of Russian gold that entered Switzerland in May. (Financial elites feather their own nests. They might voice nationalist loyalties when it serves their interests.) It remains possible that this gold in Switzerland may correspond to Russian gold in other locations, such as Singapore, which could be there to backstop the "Golden Ruble" when it makes it's debut, and free of direct Rusian involvement. 
Most of the countries in the world are not G-7 members and would like to have Russian oil and gold.  
  It is reasonable to expect global financial elites to be prepared to have hedged their bets going into a global financial regime change, which is inevitable, but uncertain as to timing and ultimate format. How soon might they jump ship? If the regime is really about to change, the first to jump will get the most rewards, and the late-jumpers will lose out. The early jumpers could also lose "bigly"...

  For those of us who are financial peons, decisions are more real-world than financial/monetary. We all have finances and expenses, bills and debts. We can work to get out of debt as the best investment, then invest in things which will be of direct useto us in a lower energy future, like vegetable gardens, getting in shape by practicing bicycle transit, lowering our energy needs for comfort and fuel, and contributing to healthy families and friendship relations. 
  All of these have supported humans through history. The days of relying solely upon financial support to cover all needs are ending.

  A risk for us is to take the bait of free electronic money on the path to the end of the chute where we will have no choices and no ability to wiggle free. 
Another risk is to take in chemicals or medicines which will weaken or kill us in time, anything from Diet-Coke to Pfizer/Moderna products. 
We can invest in eliminating debts and addictive habits, and working on our own projects to build a decent human future.

Competing Paradigms

 Economic Participants,

​  ​Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that banks from BRICS nations can freely connect to the System for Transfer of Financial Messages (SPFS), Russia’s alternative to SWIFT.
​  ​While addressing a BRICS business forum, Putin said that together with its BRICS partners – Brazil, India, China and South Africa – Russia is developing reliable alternatives for international payments.
​  ​“The Russian system for transmitting financial messages is open to connecting banks from the five countries,” he said, adding: “The geography of the use of the Russian payment system Mir is expanding.”

'Golden Ruble': Russian Think-Tank Proposes Stablecoin To Overcome Western Sanctions
..The measure is supposed to protect the golden ruble from US-led attempts to undermine its trading properties and value.
While it is not clear if the proposed coin will be convertible to the precious metal – a practice long abandoned by most fiat monies -, the VEB.RF noted that the golden ruble would be specifically designed for international trade and not intra-state use
Furthermore, it should be tradable by third countries without Russian involvement.

China Approves $2.3 Billion Loan for Crisis-Hit Pakistan Ahead of Potential IMF Deal

Sri Lanka Pins Hope on India, Russia as Fuel Supplies Run Out, Triggering Violence and Shutdowns
(Prime Minister)​ Wickremesinghe has lauded the role of New Delhi in the ongoing crisis, underlining that it is the only nation to have assisted Colombo. India has provided Sri Lanka with around $3 billion in economic assistance since the crisis broke out this year.
​  ​Wickremesinghe also began talks on Monday with a delegation from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which is visiting Colombo for the first time since the south Asian nation requested a bailout package of nearly $3 billion.​   (How can Sri Lanka pay back the IMF? Impose "austerity"?)​

​Pepe Escobar: Exile on Main Street: The Sound of the Unipolar World Fading Away
.. An expanded BRICS with a parallel G8 configuration is bound to easily overtake the Western-centric one in importance as well as GDP by purchasing power parity (PPP).
​  ​BRICS in 2021 already added Bangladesh, Egypt, the UAE and Uruguay to its New Development Bank (NDB). In May, at Foreign Ministry-level debates, Argentina, Egypt, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Senegal and Thailand were added to the 5 BRICS members. Leaders of some of these nations will be connected to the Beijing summit.
​  ​BRICS plays a completely different game from the G20. They aim for the grassroots, and it’s all about slowly “building trust” – a very Chinese concept. They are creating an independent Credit Rating Agency – away from the Anglo-American racket – and deepening a Currency Reserves Arrangement. The NDB – including its regional offices in India and South Africa – has been involved in hundreds of projects. Time will tell: one day the NDB will make the World Bank superfluous.

​Michael Every of Rabobank thinks BRICS initiatives are likely to be ineffectual (but he's not completely certain) [I think 3, then 2, then 1 happen in that order)
​  ​A BRICS alternative is that global shadow banking, actual banking, and real trade flows should all start to accept credit based on a new digital FX with commodities as collateral instead. Which also implies people won’t be able to repay their Eurodollar commitments.
​  ​There are lots of ways the West can respond to this.
1)​  ​Hedge fund billionaires and Wall Street can say ‘We want in!’, which is possible given Western financial systems operate like mercenaries rather than an army (which is why there are no countries around today that operate their national defence on that basis.) If that happens, some rich Westerners get richer, but the West loses its global pre-eminence and the geopolitical power to act on issues like Ukraine and Taiwan.
2)​  ​Or the Fed can say anyone using a BRICS currency loses access to the US financial system. That would bifurcate the world. As we already see with sanctions against Russia, it would also mean the West, and third parties, doesn’t get the commodities (or industrial goods) that the BRICS produce. That means massive inflation in some places, deflation in others, and global depression, not recession. I wouldn’t rule it out, but the end-game is clear.
3)​  ​Or the Fed can keep raising rates to force commodity prices down, raising the collateral attractiveness of the US$ and reducing that of its new rival. That would mean recession – and it already does. It would imply a massive blow-up for those leveraged long commodities - as with crypto. It would also make getting hold of US$ even harder - but that’s what Fed swap-lines, for friends, would be for. This is obviously not what the markets think will happen, and I understand why. (“Because markets.”) However, it’s not cartoonish. It’s just taking monetary policy into the geopolitical dimension, where it always sits, and most so when potential monetary rivals appear.

​Another perspective on WEF's "Great Reset": "It's not a Turndown". It's a Takedown", Catherine Austin Fitts​
​  ​High food and fuel prices along with crushing interest rates are no accident. CAF explains, "To me, this is part of the ‘going direct reset.’ ..."
​  ​“There is an official narrative, and the official narrative is they’ve got to stop inflation... Let’s look very simply at what happened. They voted on the direct reset. Then they injected $5 trillion into the economy that went to the insiders. Then they used Covid to shut down the economy run by the outsiders. Now, the outsiders want to open another business, and they are going to radically raise the cost of capital to the outsiders. What’s going to happen is that $5 trillion is going to buy more assets more cheaply. To me, this is part of centralizing the control of the economy. They are asserting very significant central control. This is not a turndown–this is a takedown.”
​  ​CAF’s view of the economy is simple and tangible. CAF says, “This is a world where people are trying to get into real assets that can generate a yield..."
​  ​"Let me tell you what the problem is. Doing things that create value on assets requires the rule of law. We are watching a very significant financial coup d’état. We have talked about this for years. That financial coup d’état is turning into a coup, and you are seeing a fundamental breakdown of law and order in many places. It is related to people trying to pick up assets. We see cities where crime is off the charts, and speculators are out having a field day picking up assets with that $5 trillion.”
​  ​CAF says, “At some point, you have to realize we are in a war..."
"We have an enemy. We have the power to win, but we are going to have to fight. If you look at our ancestors in the last 10,000 years, I dare say we have it in us. Let’s get out of fear and get into fighting mode. There are two roads. We can preserve, rebuild and protect the human civilization, or we can become slaves. If you look at what these guys are up to, death is not the worst thing that can happen to you. Do not fear death. Fear slavery in a transhuman society.”

Ottawa intends to stick to anti-Russia sanctions, but does not want them to harm Germany  

​  ​Canada is exploring ways to return crucial parts for Russia’s Nord Stream pipeline, which are currently stuck in the country due to sanctions, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday citing Canadian Minister of Natural Resources Jonathan Wilkinson.​..
..​The parts fall under Canada’s penalties against Russia, and Ottawa says it cannot return them without breaching these restrictions.
​  ​“We want to respect the sanctions because the sanctions were put into place for a reason. That being said, the intent of the sanctions was never to cause significant pain to Germany, which is one of our closest friends and allies. So, we are very seized with this issue,” Wilkinson told the news outlet.
​  ​“We are talking to Germany, trying to find a pathway through which we can actually enable the flow of gas. There may be different options that we can look at,” he stated, adding that Ottawa is negotiating with Berlin on ways to return the equipment.
​  ​According to the German Federal Grid Agency, the reduction in gas flow affected the supply of Russian gas from Germany to other European countries, including France, Austria and the Czech Republic.

Covid Vaccines More Likely to Put You in Hospital Than Keep You Out, BMJ Editor’s Analysis of Pfizer and Moderna Trial Data Finds
​  ​Noting their study is limited by the fact that the raw data from COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials are not publicly available, they stress that “given the global public health implications, there is an urgency to make all COVID-19 trial data public, particularly regarding serious adverse events, without any further delay”.
​  ​They conclude that there is a need for formal harm-benefit analyses for Covid vaccines, taking into account the different levels of risk of serious Covid and adverse events that exist between demographic groups. Ideally, this would be based on individual participant data, they say, though such data remain frustratingly unavailable.

Did Pfizer ​"​Roofie​"​ the Placebo Babies?​    (We need placebo vial contents independently analyzed. All destroyed? "Trade-secrets"?)​
Saline injections are not supposed to have such an aggressive side effects profile. So what exactly was in Pfizer's placebo injection?

"It's the FDA's job" came an incorrect answer​.

this is either egregious dereliction of duty or an outright lie in FOIA response.
they either did not do the analysis because they knew what they’d find if they did
they did do the analysis and are hiding it because of what it showed and the fact that they could never justify inaction in the face of it.

there is simply no plausible case that they “forgot” or “did not think it was important” or “saw no reason to use resources on it.”

Thanks MPSK:  Fort Bragg lost over 80 soldiers from “sudden” and “unexplained” causes, and stopped reporting on the deaths after June 2021

 ..In just 18 months, Fort Bragg lost over 80 soldiers from “sudden” and “unexplained” causes. According to officials, 33 of the fatalities are of “undetermined” causes. Fort Bragg cannot explain why dozens of soldiers are dying in their own bunks.
  During that same eighteen-month period, three Fort Bragg soldiers died in overseas combat. This means soldiers stationed at Fort Bragg are twenty-seven times more likely to die unexpectedly on their home base than in overseas combat!
..Drugs are only a small part of the problem. In January of 2021, Army captain Robert Latham died suddenly of an “apparent heart attack.” The 32-year-old was previously in top physical condition. A Green Beret named Calvin Rockward passed away from a “sudden, unexpected medical event.” The 38-year-old was in excellent physical condition, too... 

Why Take on the DoD? Humanity.
  Matthew Crawford keeps digging into the story of the US Military appearing to extensively falsify medical records and statistics related to COVID-19 and outcomes from mandatory (experimental) vaccinations.
  Over the past few months I have received a large number of communications—both from friends, interested parties, and people whom I don't trust alike—that go something like this, "You're opening a very dangerous can of worms."
  Yeah, well, we all die somehow. What a shame it would be for that to mean nothing.
