Gustav Klimt Pine forest II 1901
I very much like this one also; it’s very different; but lends a different atmosphere…which I can enjoy as well…October 29, 2020 at 2:32 pm #64964Susmarie108Participant
“Don’t harsh my mellow, man.” Bbee on it full blow! We need to keep laughing as it releases stuck energy – we need all clear heads/Hearts on board.
Thankfully we have Greenwald…
And Charles Hugh Smith (CHS) – “ALICE will find a way to escape the bonds of neofeudal serfdom.” Agree: ALICE will be leading the revolution lurking on the horizon. It doesn’t matter who wins the Presidency and the Senate, either way – ALICE will UNITE the factions and prevail.
One angle Gundlach is missing: The “enthusiasm” factor is present, disguised as quiet determination – and it is intensely high for removing an unfit President Trump.October 29, 2020 at 2:33 pm #64965zerosumParticipant

Meet ALICE: Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed,
ALICE will find a way to escape the bonds of neofeudal serfdom.
As I’ve noted here many times, the cash / informal economy beckons.
What Is a Black Market?
A black market is economic activity that takes place outside government-sanctioned channels. Black market transactions usually occur “under the table” to let participants avoid government price controls or taxes.October 29, 2020 at 3:18 pm #64968Susmarie108Participant
What I LOVE about Gustav Klimt Pine forest II 1901: how masterfully LIGHT is used to give the forest scene its all-encompassing presence. Can you feel the forest floor’s mothering energy in the pale green glow? Do the densely packed trees form a cathedral in the warm orange-brown woods? Do the glimmers of light shining through the windows of the woods invite you to pause? Resting…restoring….I am there.October 29, 2020 at 3:40 pm #64969
“there will be no collective immunity to coronavirus”
This is garbage. We already know that most people ALREADY have immunity to the virus. They didn’t get it. Somehow they WERE immune. Spouses of infected don’t get it: somehow THEY are immune. From several models we are well past herd immunity, which is what the hospital occupancy says. Can all people be forever immune from the common cold: experience says no, but it doesn’t kill anyone either. The Flu numbers are zero and those deaths have been transferred over. Finally 6 months too late they are asking questions about it. It’s nice to do your noodling in a vacuum or look through a porthole, but it clearly sets you as an IYI. Do a sanity check on your conclusions.
“ALICE Doesn’t Work Here Anymore (CHS)”
He’s correct, but Korean immigrants somehow succeed in under 20 years. African immigrants as well, despite all the uninformed blather about “racism” and “passing.”
UBI and the whole package only keeps all workers unemployed, all small business work and initiative dead, and all their middle-class assets transferred to Bezos. It’s their “solution” because it’s a trap. One that – obviously!!! – profits them and kills as many undesirables as they can get away with. As always. It’s your job to not fall for it and stop them. As always.
“but central banks have obviously proved impotent at generating inflation.”
Yes, but they’ve already called an economic reset and a currency swap. Inflation in this currency will suddenly be infinite when it isn’t accepted anywhere.
“Mark Zuckerberg programmed a lookalike android to testify.”
The new unit has been upgraded with the ability to drink water.
“When @jack is asked if @Twitter has the ability to influence elections, he says NO.”
Not only that, I think they themselves said – in 2016 – “could we tip an election? Probably. We wouldn’t do it of course, but probably.” Uh-huh. But you’ve never considered it and haven’t taken any actions in that direction ever, got it.
You see the difference is that “Russia” (actually not Russia) bought $10,000 whole dollars in 2016. And the budgets for the campaigns were $6,500,000,000. That’s only 650,000 times smaller, so CLEARLY Russia ran the election and not the DNC/GOP campaign offices. That’s just common sense.
…In a world so math-illiterate they don’t know what 99.997% means.
“We know everything the government does because they work for us and the government has to respect our right to privacy.”
Wow, we should write this down and encode it in a founding document or something. Backed by guns.
“What Is a Black Market?”
They already are: they get government checks AND a side hustle, so it’s easy to make more than the average job. …Mostly because the check means free healthcare, a $30,000 perk. In America we only pay liars and fraudsters. Workers get screwed. Professional courtesy, from Congress.October 29, 2020 at 3:42 pm #64970ArttuaParticipant
“His conclusion is that there will be no collective immunity to coronavirus despite earlier hopes. The virus is here to stay for a long while, and while vaccines may give immunity this is likely to be temporary”
“Despite publicly downplaying it, President Donald Trump and his team of White House advisers have embraced the controversial belief that herd immunity will help control the COVID-19 outbreak, according to three senior health officials working with the White House coronavirus task force. More worrisome for those officials: they have begun taking steps to turn the concept into policy.”

Oh, Fiddlesticks! This won’t post today and it should have gone in 2 hours ago. I’ll try to break it up.
Tessa Fights Robots: The Great Reset for Dummies (It’s sort of long, but it’s all as good as these snippets. Thanks Cat and Colleen)
The Great Reset is a massively funded, desperately ambitious, internationally coordinated project led by some of the biggest multinational corporations and financial players on the planet and carried out by cooperating state bodies and NGOs…
The psychological reason for the Great Reset is the fear of losing control of property, the planet. I suppose, if you own billions and move trillions, your perception of reality gets funky, and everything down below looks like an ant hill that exists for you. Just ants and numbers, your assets.
Thus, the practical aim of the Great Reset is to fundamentally restructure the world’s economy and geopolitical relations based on two assumptions: one, that every element of nature and every life form is a part of the global inventory (managed by the allegedly benevolent state, which, in turn, is owned by several suddenly benevolent wealthy people, via technology)—and two, that all inventory needs to be strictly accounted for: be registered in a central database, be readable by a scanner and easily ID’ed, and be managed by AI, using the latest “science.”…
The reform in question is meant to disrupt all areas of life, on a planetary scale: government, international relations, finance, energy, food, medicine, jobs, urban planning, real estate, law enforcement, and human interactions—and it starts with changing the way we think of ourselves and our relationship with the world. Notably, privacy is a huge thorn in the collective eye of our “great resetters”…
And currently, the “winning” concept of the day seems to be a world filled with abbreviations: AI, 5G, IoT, and so on. A world where the money is digital, the food is lab-grown, where everything is counted and controlled by giant monopolies, and the people are largely deprived of free will. A world where each element of nature and each living being is either a data host, or a source of energy—or both. A world where the flow of the peasants’ everyday is micromanaged by ever-monitoring, ever-nudging AI that registers thoughts and feelings before the people even get a chance to make those thoughts and feelings their own. A world where living itself is outsourced to the machine, and a human being is essentially a meat suit…October 29, 2020 at 3:56 pm #64975
Hmmm, another fail on the part that has the link to Tessa Fights Robots…
I’ll try the second snippet without the link. AI doesn’t like it…
It is absolutely true that the soulless, utilitarian approach to nature, to life, and to other living beings has been extremely destructive—with the most immediate, most visible destruction outsourced to “third world countries” and to the less financially fortunate people in the West. (See landfills, Cancer Alley, and unhealthy, poison-filled non-organic foods). It is true that massive consumerism and the use disposables (brought to us by more or less the same parties who are now scolding people for consumerism) have created a lot of messes. It is true that our oceans and lungs are full of plastic, that the amount of chronic disease is skyrocketing, and that many species are dying off. It is true that our soil, our food, and our bodies are tainted with highly toxic glyphosate. It is true that usually, decades pass between the time manufacturers realize the toxicity of their product and the time when saying so in a conversation stops being a conspiracy theory. All true. However, it is also true that the people who are pointing fingers at social ills and telling us that we need a Great Reset are from the same camps and lineages that have caused it in the first place…October 29, 2020 at 4:00 pm #64977
I just tried to post ONLY the lin to the Tessa Fights Robots link.
AI will not let me post the link to this blog.
It is at my blog link, though. Sign up for Tessa. I did.

U.K. Suspends Corbyn? ¿Que pasa?
It’s quite the phenomenon. The least antisemitic person in his entire party now gets the blame for everyone else’s antisemitism -as far as there was any-, just so they can all continue without a blemish. The Labour Party is now officially dead. Or, rather, it represents the exact same thing the Dems do in the US: a fake left wing. And we all know that chicken won’t fly.October 29, 2020 at 7:22 pm #64982
That’s good stuff on the Great Reset at your blog today, John Day- thank you.
Any chance we can opt out of said reset? (heh!)

Does anyone else get the impression that all this great reset garbage is actually a sign that the system is losing its power rather than gaining more? If one looks through history one will find that towards the end of empires and elite rule the powers that be attempt to grasp power ever more tightly and descend into greater depths of depravity. Waves crash right after they reach their greatest height and then roll back out to sea. I think the turn towards totalitarianism is a sign that the system is buckling and the limits to growth model’s time scales were correct. The further you are from the urban centers of power, the more free you will be of all this nonsense, and you can basically just ignore it. Get the hell out of the big cities while you still can and watch from afar as they progressively go more insane. I’m currently just acting as if the big cities of my country did not exist, and any government above the local community level does not exist, so any orders given down from above are ignored. It’s a far more pleasant place. As Dr D says a lot of this is voluntary, we can turn of facebook, twitter, the tv and our lives would be much better for it.October 29, 2020 at 8:24 pm #64986
> Does anyone else get the impression that all this great reset garbage is actually a sign that the system is losing its power rather than gaining more?
I don’t, myself. Primarily because the great majority seem to be fine with “our” New Techno-fascist totalitarianism. Back around April I felt more optimistic, but now I see an ultra-compliant citizenry mostly saying “please tell me what to do!” and “stay safe!” babble.. “Does my mask/faceshelf/Tyvek hazmat suit with filtered
air supply look ok, Dear?”

“Greg Palast does not mince words about the 2020 elections.
Only the voter fraud he warns about is not by the voters, as President Trump insists. It’s by the vote-stealers in the Republican Party. And they’ve been at it for a long time, unbeknownst to the American people.”

Glenn Greenwald’s factual Biden story that The Interceptor CENSORED is up on ZH, also his substack, but that link won’t post.

Pumpkin Scone: Yes, increased desperation as the power elites try to grasp total power, just as the whole system starts to fail from lack of cheap power and other cheap inputs. It has become too heirarchical, which makes it grossly inefficient, due to distant centralization. AI on smartphones is a tech fix, due to mass connection and mass gatekeeping on-the-cheap.
I agree with your read of history, but that is extremely distressing to life forms such as myself.
We are what bear the brunt of what comes in the failure of the last desperate grasp.
It ain’t the narcissists up top what suffers horribly for their failures, it’s us.
Try not to gloat until you are sure it’s safe.October 30, 2020 at 9:40 am #65005
Possibly top Anglo reporter, Glenn Greenwald, has to quit his own newspaper to report on the U.S.’s top story.
Can’t happen here! This is America and our politicians and reporters are always totally honest! Honest! They said so on TV.
