Misanthropocene, the Age of Perpetual Warfare and Deception (Part 2)
Strategies Deployed in the Misanthropocene – the Deployment of Unconventional Tradecraft
During conventional warfare, tradecraft such as espionage, cryptography, enhanced interrogation, surveillance and so on is the most highly valued. While these tradecraft specialties are still valued, the progression and omnipresent nature of the IoT (Internet of Things) has created a much more valued tradecraft, hacking through the use of zero day exploits, a skillset that would never have been valued so highly just a few decades ago. Due to the interconnectedness of global finance and trade through the internet, silent wars and black ops conducted out-of-the-sight of global citizens and unreported by the mass media will continue to escalate along with unconventional warfare waged through cybersecurity attacks. For example, a zero day exploit that targets regional energy grids and shuts them down without warning will cause mass chaos overnight, with access to all money and financial services, clean water, public transportation, electricity and food except non-perishable food items with extended shelf lives to literally disappear overnight. Furthermore, if executed by a highly skilled hacker, it will likely be very difficult to pinpoint the origin of such an attack and likely take months to find the source of the attack, thus making xenophobic fearmongering among the masses extremely easy to accomplish as rumors of a nation’s most hated “enemies” absorbing responsibility for such attacks even if the attack was a homegrown one. Such attacks may even originate within domestic borders as an escalation of the next stage of internal civil wars between the State and its own citizens. And even if the ruling class does not use this tradecraft to wage war against its own citizens, the opportunity for black hats to not enrich themselves by staging such attacks will offer far too rich of an opportunity for them to pass up. The IoT has made it inevitable that a wave of cybersecurity attacks, extremely disruptive to normal life will occur, whether staged or unstaged, as a result of bad players whether these bad players are the State or lone wolf black hats, and that those that refuse to address such issues now will struggle much more than those that are willing to recognize the means by which the next stages of compliance will be thrust upon us.
For the past few years, we have been conditioned to accept rolling blackouts as a normal occurrence. Do you remember all the times rolling blackouts happened nationwide and regionally in many different nations in 2018 and 2019? You may watch videos of these severe blackouts in Venezuela here, in London here and at the Atlanta airport here and in New York City here just to name a few cities and nations where dozens of extended blackouts occurred. While there have been some limited blackouts still happening this year, like the one that affected 187,000 people in the Upper East and West Side of Manhattan, we haven’t experienced blackouts on the same scale this year as occurred in 2017 to 2019 that affected millions of people worldwide. Instead, this year, due to the psychological warfare imposed by virus-rationalized lockdowns already afflicting us, we have been mostly bombarded with stories about how utility firms plan to use smart meters to ration electricity in future years due to inevitable stresses on the electricity grid and how Russian hackers may hack smart meters to commit cyberattacks on the UK electricity grid. Already, the conditioning for blackouts and brownouts is happening, with people already being conditioned to blame future blackout periods of the electrical grid, coming soon to a city near you, on the Russians.
Understanding all of the above, it is extremely difficult to deny that we are currently undergoing the most elevated time of warfare in modern history right now, with escalation of unconventional warfare near guaranteed to intensify in coming years both inside domestic borders between the State and its people and across international boundaries between the nations determined to make physical gold an important part of its monetary system and those nations ideologically opposed to this policy, which is not as clear an East versus West demarcation as many may believe. For example, there is little doubt that despite the BRICS moniker indicative of an economic alliance among Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, that India has turned its back on this alliance through the leadership of Indian PM Narendra Modi and are clearly aligned with a continuing hegemonic pro-US currency platform at the current time, even if that has to come in the form of some type of Fedcoin or cryptodollar. In 2020, Iran would clearly be a more appropriate “I” in the BRICS alliance than India. In addition, in Asia, Japan and South Korea are clearly aligned with the US Central Bank and ECB monetary policy and not in favor of any type of gold-based, let along gold-backed monetary system in the future.
In the past, militaries, armies and navies, were necessary to wage war. Today, we have seen wars waged psychologically, economically, and through the Internet of Things (IoT) without a single munition dropped or bullet fired. Though many would view the current lockdowns as a result of biological warfare, psychological, not biological, warfare was ultimately responsible for the vast swaths of economic destruction achieved through economic strafing of citizens via global lockdowns. In every nation in the world, if we weigh the economic destruction caused by the virus versus the lockdowns, the lockdowns are the clear winner in more successfully achieving a path of economic destruction and misery over the virus. However, because convincing the world of the lethality of the virus was paramount to enforcing the global lockdowns, an exercise of mental compliance achieved through decades of compliance conditioning, (as I explain here in a 37-minute podcast titled, “How the Ruling Class Uses the Science Fallacy to Create Mass Compliance”, and is well worth listening to, in my humble opinion), I consider this latest stage of war as a psychological war rather than a biological one.
The Counterattack Solution to the Misanthropocene?
Finally, since the next stage of warfare to be unleashed, after financial warfare, is likely to be cyberwarfare, or perhaps a simultaneous financial and cyberwarfare attack, what can we do to survive in these times of relentless warfare? To begin, I would recommend searching for a city or region with a very strong and competent government at the local level that did not impose any strong lockdowns even if they were imposed at the national level. Such local governments will maintain the best odds for continuing to do the right thing in the future in the face of strong opposition to their liberty preserving rule, as they are not ruled by non-thinking, sell-out politicians that cannot separate propaganda from science and that will fight on behalf of the rights of the people. It is clear to me that the vast majority of politicians live a lifestyle that remove them so far from the lives of the common citizen that they have zero ability to understand the trials and tribulations that literally billions of people are currently undergoing. Therefore to rely on the assistance of people that are so disconnected to the average struggle of the average person makes zero sense as a survival choice.
Consequently, start preparing, if you have not already been preparing, to ensure access to money, food, water and energy all through off-grid means as much as possible. While many people will say such preparations verge on the edge of paranoia, nothing I have witnessed for the last decade of my life suggests that dependence upon the State for survival is wise. In fact, just the opposite is true, and everything I have witnessed during the last decade reinforces the statement that former US President Ronald Reagan uttered on 12 August 1986: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.” All of us directly witnessed this year the “help” from the State offered to use result in mandatory economic lockdowns worldwide that severely elevated numbers of suicides, mental health problems, and caused food and home insecurity to explode for hundreds of millions of people this year. So, a rapid progression towards as much self-sufficiency is an absolute necessity to neutralize the constant state of warfare being waged against us.
For those unwilling to prepare, ask yourself this question. Are you happy with the direction in which your nation is heading, politically, economically and spiritually? If the answer is “no”, then do you expect your neighbors to do all the heavy lifting for you without your participation? The birth of nations has always required a lot of heavy lifting, sacrifice and a tremendous work ethic to overcome the draconian policies of the oppressive ruling class. This time will be no different.
Despite the fact that we live in the era of Misanthropocene, this doesn’t mean that life will become infused with the perpetual hope-deficient bleakness of Cormac McCarthy’s apocalyptic novel, The Road, but simply that those that lean into self-sufficiency and into a practical blend of preparation and realism now will simply be much better equipped to handle the road ahead with minimal derailments. The only element more abundant on planet Earth than nitrogen is human resiliency. It is now time to exercise our resiliency to ensure that in future years, we are not just surviving, but that we are thriving, in contradiction to the best plans of the ruling class. Back in July 2019, I suggested to my patrons to lean very heavily into physical purchase of gold and silver when gold futures were trading at $1,180 an ounce and silver futures were trading at less than $14 an ounce, a warning that seemed perhaps as apocalyptic back then as my warnings in this article do now. Had I told 100 random strangers to do the same, they most likely would have sarcastically replied, “Why? Is the world going to end soon?” But with the benefit of time and 20/20 hindsight, we now know that my guidance back then, as is the guidance I’m providing here, was far from apocalyptic but rather just a call to action based on realistic probabilities dismissed as conspiratorial by the ruling class.
We often conflate realism with fear mongering and some people may think my warnings are fear mongering instead of a call for action based upon realism. Real fear mongering, on the other hand, is a powerful tool utilized by the ruling class to put us in a perpetual state of inertia and to prevent us from acting in our own best interests. More importantly than the lockdown of our physical movements achieved by the ruling class this year is the imprisonment and successful lockdowns of our minds. Do not fall victim to fear. Real fear mongering is injecting non-scientific information about a virus being lethal to healthy people with strong immune systems into a daily news cycle for month after month after month until even intelligent people break down and accept their nonsense. Real fear mongering is spreading information as “scientific” from studies without revealing the methodology used to compile the data, which allows zero scientific and truthful comparison between the real danger of a current virus and a common flu virus. Virtually no one is intellectually compelled to study data collection methodologies, available here and here, to truly understand the robustness and validity of reported information. Consequently, even within the realm of fear mongering, the ruling class has always resorted to playing a management perception game among the people, understanding that the actual introduction of a deadly virus is completely unnecessary to lockdown the world’s population, but that only the constant promotion of fear of a relatively non-lethal virus to all people with healthy immune systems is necessary to achieve their goals.
Strategies of the Misanthropocene – Keep the Public Feeding at the Government Teat for Maximum Compliance
In order to move us all inside the boundaries of their managed perception game of mass compliance, the ruling class will eventually issue more stimulus checks, or perhaps even issue universal basic income (UBI), as this concept is securing politicians in South Korea massive popularity at the current time. In other words, keep the masses dependent upon government handouts for survival, even if the presented solution was for a crisis that the State invented, and compliance rates can be dialed up to maximum levels. Of course, the UBI or stimulus checks will never be sufficient to replace income from lost jobs that were a consequence of these lockdowns, and will only be a fraction of our prior income for those that actually earned a living wage, but since it will be sufficient to keep us alive, most people will gladly comply to any further mandates in order to keep receiving their survival wages. So, the vast majority of us will remain perhaps not happy, but satisfied to obey the orders of tyrants while Rome burns and we watch millions around us starve to death in a real life horror show (as the poorest of the poor never receive these government handouts for lack of proper infrastructure to receive them), simply because we’ve been repeatedly conditioned since the 911 crisis and the 2008 global financial crisis to accept the crisis capitalism model implemented since then. This model is as follows – use a crisis, real or artificially created, to plunge the population into misery, wait until the masses clamor for government help, and then swoop in to offer measures disguised as help that are actually designed to maximize dependence upon the State for survival and that will build maximum compliance to future marching orders.
In fact, post 2020 US Presidential election, I would not be surprised if UBI is proposed in America as a “solution” to the economic lockdowns. We must all be smart enough to understand that anyone that accepts UBI as a long-term, instead of a temporary solution to his or her problems, will only be sinking further down the rabbit hole that transforms us from free men and women into a permanent ward of the State. The simple solution to avoid being voluntarily placed in such a bleak situation is to work on increasing self-sufficiency every single day.
No Real Positive Change for Humanity Can Ever Happen at the Hands of Career Politicians
Finally those that believe a change in the national leadership, either at the Presidential or Prime Minister level in your nation, will shift the tide of war in your nation, no such fantasy will materialize. If there is no significant decline in the US stock markets that precedes the US Presidential election on 3 November 2020, then incumbent President Trump will likely win re-election in a surprise result in my opinion. However, if a significant decline of 10% or more materializes between now and the US Presidential election in the S&P 500 index, then such a development favors the challenger Biden winning. However, no matter who wins, the perpetual state of warfare will not subside. As a last minute psychological ploy, don’t be surprised if incumbent Trump issues an executive order to override the disastrous lockdown policies enforced at the State level. With tens of millions of American lives already having been ruined by these State lockdowns, Trump would build massive goodwill right before the election by issuing a federal mandate to legislate open economies and the end of economic lockdowns in all 50 states immediately prior to the election. In my opinion, the Trump administration’s biggest failure this year has been to allow each individual state to give their own marching orders regarding the handling of the virus and this has resulted in some Governors and Mayors seizing this opportunity to become self-appointed Kings and Queens of numerous regions in America and enriching themselves by crushing the bones of their constituents. If I understand executive order powers correctly (and perhaps I don’t), then one swift pen stroke before the US election bell tolls could reverse all the absurdity of the lockdowns nationwide. If you happen to reside in any of the branded anti-China (a euphemism for anti-gold based monetary system) nations of Australia, New Zealand, the United States, England, South Korea, Japan, India and the United States, then I suggest moving a little bit more quickly than others in this race to become self-sufficient.
