The first week I looked at the tectonic shifts that are taking place in the global monetary space and considered what these changes portend for the future of the world economy.
Last week I examined the ongoing (generated) COVID crisis and what we can expect as the Era of Biosecurity continues to unfold.
This week I will turn my attention to world geopolitics, analyzing the types of conflicts that we can expect to see over the course of this year and explaining how these conflicts will set the stage for even more dramatic events over the course of the decade.
The Fall of the American Empire
I know you’ve heard it before, but that’s because it is relevant, it is happening, and it is momentous. The American Empire is falling.
If you want to know what it looks like when an empire falls, don’t fret; we have a pretty handy template for that.
So if you’re getting that fin de siècle feeling from all of this, rest assured that you’re not alone. The feeling is everywhere and it’s reflected in the “end of the world as we know it” stories that cross the newswires on a daily basis now:
The world economy is teetering on the edge of oblivion and it threatens to bring the entire dollar-centric monetary order down with it. In fact, those who would dismiss such observations by pointing out the myriad ways that the US Empire is at its zenith are actually helping to make the case for this being the beginning of the Great Unraveling of Pax (i.e., Bellum) Americana.
Yes, the dollar is still king, the American government can still happily issue bonds that other governments and institutional investors are happy to purchase, America’s capital markets continue to be the place where hundreds of billions of dollars of (notional) wealth are sloshed around every year, and American-dominated institutions like the IMF and the World Bank continue to hold sway over the financial architecture of the planet. But as I demonstrated in the first edition of this series (and as I explored in my recent discussion with Catherine Austin Fitts), that era is coming to an end. What exactly will replace the current monetary paradigm is still open for discussion, but, as readers of my work will not need to be told, if the globalists get their way the next system will not be dominated by a sovereign American currency run by and for the people.
And yes, the American Empire has been the undisputed global military superpower for decades now. But the very fact that the US now has troops deployed in 177 countries around the world speaks less to its unquestionable might and more to the incredible expenditures of money, resources and manpower that are needed to keep the system of American hegemony functioning. The massive overextension that the US military has engaged in—from the wars of terror in Afghanistan and Iraq to the “kinetic military action” in Libya and the failed overthrow of Syria to the secret war for Africa and the Asia-Pacific pivot—has broken the spell that the myth of America! The Great and Powerful has cast on the public imagination since the end of World War II. Toto has pulled back the curtain and the man behind the curtain has been exposed for all to see. America no longer rules the world.
But if nature abhors a vacuum, geopolitics abhors it even more. So who will rush in to take the seat at the head of the table that the US is leaving vacant? Well, if you’re a Democrat you think it’s those evil Russkies. If you’re a Republican, you think it’s those evil ChiComs. But if you’re a conspiracy realist, you know that absolutely all of the above (and many more) are working to create a truly global system of control.
Choosing between a world led by Russia and China or one led by the US and its allies is like choosing whether to eat excrement pudding or a feces sandwich. In other words, it’s no choice at all.
As I have pointed out many times before (but apparently not nearly enough), the players at the global geopolitical table all have the same vision for the future: a world where a handful of oligarchs use a technocratic managerial class to rule over their compliant populations.
No better demonstration of this simple reality could be provided than the madness that has unfolded across the globe over the past year. Lockdowns of entire cities, regions and—with the latest crackdown on international travel—even countries. Brutal crackdowns on protest and blanket censorship of dissent. Politicians arbitrarily deciding which businesses can operate and which ones must shut their doors. The foisting of untested medical technologies on the public and the complete erasure of any pretense that you can control what happens to your own body. This is the world that the technocrats and eugenicists have always wanted to bring about.
And now that Pandora’s Box has been opened and the biosecurity paradigm has been unleashed, we see that all of these governments are, at base, exactly the same. China, Russia, the US, the UK, Australia, Germany, South Korea, the Netherlands, Iran and nearly every other country you can think of has adopted the WHO’s casedemic guidelines, embraced the lockdowns and surveillance of their population, brutally put down all dissent and scrambled to secure enough doses of the COVID “vaccines” to inject each and every one of their tax cattle.
The world of COVID-1984 is what the future looks like to these technocrats, regardless of whether it’s Uncle Sam in the driver’s seat or Uncle Xi or any of the other misleaders.
Having said that, there is a war going on right now. At one level, it is a contest between the various players in this geopolitical game to secure themselves a better seat at the table of global power in the coming biosecurity age. But, as I have pointed out before, at a deeper level it is a war on you. It is a war on me. It is a war on all of us.The Year Ahead – Part 3: Geopolitics
