The Great Reset: The Social Contract part 1

“For decades, it has slowly and almost imperceptibly evolved in a direction that forced individuals to assume greater responsibility for their individual lives and economic outcomes. Leading large parts of the population (most evidently in the low-income brackets) to conclude that the social contract was at best being eroded, if not in some case breaking down entirely.” Page 96.

I don’t know what social contract Klaus Schwab, a man who has worked for a university since the early 1970s and hangs out with billionaires and politicians in his spare time, was a part of or what he thought it entailed but yes personal responsibility is an idea that is important for society and mental wellbeing. The notion that personal responsibility is a bad thing might be the reason that the left has gone after Dr. Jordan Peterson time and time again. For a program like the Great Reset to work would mean that the public believes they are not responsible for their own wellbeing. In order for the great reset to happen all personal responsibility needs to be handed over to “big” government who knows what is best for you, instead of you. When this has happened in the past millions of people died. Mao knew what was best when he had the country growing only rice, causing a famine that China had never seen before. When the Tibetans were forced to grow crops they had never seen before, they starved unable to grow the new crop in a cold, high altitude environment. Stalin took farms away from people in the Ukraine and handed them over to people who had never farmed before. Millions staved and the soviet government had to produce poster telling people not to eat their children during the winter months. Needless to say, I would rather deal with a social contract where I can blame myself for what is happening in my world then point the finger at a government that never takes responsibility for the horrible things it has done.

“Today, the fundamental reasons underpinning the loss of faith in our social contracts coalesce around issues of inequality, the ineffectiveness of most redistribution policies, a sense of exclusion and marginalization, and a general sentiment of unfairness.” Page 96-97.

Inequality hasn’t been in issue until a bunch of communist, feminist, lesbian, trans rights activists started marching in the streets, setting fires to small businesses, and killing people in the name of Black Lives Matter. Equality is a buzz word, something to get people motivated behind. It sounds good therefore it must be, but when we look how equality and equity are used but these organization, including the World Economic Forum, we see that the definition changes to fit their narrative and keep the conversation moving towards their end goal. If people took personal responsibility for their actions then conversation revolving around inequality wouldn’t happen. This argument assumes that people in general are not in control of their own lives and need someone else to aid them through life.

As for redistribution policies, most people do not like the idea of having their money handed over to an organization that takes a cut for themselves then hands the rest over in the most inefficient way possible. The theft from those who are responsible to hand over their earnings to those unable or unwilling to better their own lives is never look upon as a good thing. As of February 2021, a group of investors took their money and bought stock in GameStop, a brick-and-mortar videogame store that looked like it was going to go out of business. In doing so, a group of hedge funds started to look at massive losses having shorted the stock trying to make easy money and kill the company all together. These people took personal responsibility for their finances and turned the game of the stock market on its head. Again, the people who took personal responsibility for their situation and bettered their lives were portrayed as villains instead of the American entrepreneurs they are. There is an agenda to teach the public to put their trust in the government and not to try solving their problems on their own. We have seen this time and time again. When wall street looks at the public, they say that they could do what they do but choose not to. When they do participate in the stock market the same people who pushed the idea of getting themselves out of poverty then scream “NO! Not like that!”

“Whichever form it takes, in almost all cases, the establishment’s response has been left wanting- ill prepared for the rebellion and out of ideas and policy levers to address the problem.” Page 97.

This passage was in regard to the rise in populism in many western countries like the UK, France, and the US. In the side margins I wrote as a note, “no shit.” Even after Joe Biden took power along with the rest of the Democratic left their first priority was to impeach the former president of the united states. The $2000 checks that were promised to the public for voting them into office were reduced to $1400, for some people, if you qualify. As of March 2, 2021, these checks have still not been approved by the senate and will like not ship out to those in need until April. The lefts lack of focus on anything other than “Orange Man Bad” continues to become more obvious and I can’t wait to sit back and watch them eat each other. As for the “rebellion,” the notion that the opposing side of a political view is now regarded as a rebellion or insurrection only divides the country more and serves no purpose other than to villainize people and reduce them too less than human. With Trump out of the picture the left is out of ideas, pulling a check book out to cover cost for things they can not afford, playing the same game of kicking the can down the street to leave for someone else to clean up.

Politics: AOC is the butt of all jokes these days as her story of fear about the Capitol Protest is picked apart and proven false. Three versions of her story have been discovered and with the Impeachment around corner no one can figure out why she is pushing this agenda a month after the event.

1984 is here and the Democratic held government is pushing for more surveilance on law abiding citizens. NPR did an interview with a former member of the CIA who said we need to start using the tactics we learned in Iraq and Afghanistan here at home against US insurgents. These tactics include: indefinite detention, drone strikes, the capture of suspects in the middle of the night during helicopter raids, torture, hiring local gangs to assassinate targets, and using mercenary companies to perform illegal actions since there were exempt from rules of engagement.

Some of the definitions of insurgents include, supporting or voting for Trump, believing in conspiracies, devoutly religious, anti-media or anti-government, pro 2A, climate change denier, and supports the constitution of the United States.

Economics: The Gamestop rebellion appears to be over for the moment. With the failed push into the silver market wall street and the media continue to struggle in figuring out a way to control the new army of investors taking over the market. Silver dropped in price this week in a failed push towards raising the price. The price of Gamestop dropped close to $100 a share compared to the $400-500 range it hovered in most of the week.

Food: Seed companies are still having delays in orders and increased demands as we approach spring. While some people say we won’t see a shortage of seeds there is a good chance of missing out on early planting season with some sites having a 30 day back order notice posted on their webpage.

Self-defense: Black Lives Matter, the communist organization that received 2 billion dollars in 2020 from donors, has been nominated for the Nobel “Mostly peaceful” prize. The reason for being nominated is as follows: 2 billion dollars in damages nationwide, 200 million dollars in damages in Minneapolis, 30 people dead including retired police captain David Dorn. Countless businesses looted, burned down, putout of business, extortion by BLM activists against small businesses, using public funds to paint political signs on public property, using public funds to pay police to protect political signs on public property, destruction of statues across the country, the siege of the federal courthouse in Portland, harassment, intimidation, bodily harm, and the list goes on and on. If this is how we get peace in the future, prepare for more war.

Editorial: While I might have had some time off recently it doesn’t feel like I have been out of work. In two weeks, I’ve published two new books, kept this news letter going along with the rest of the website, and I’m currently working of the rerelease of any fourth Future Collapse book, The Long Winter. It was a failed project for many reasons and because of many people including myself. I went back to the original Novella and have to say that is where the book should have stayed. I still have a stack of material to work on and finish before I start my new job. I’m hoping the next ten days will see more items released and my work load lightening with my days occupied by fulltime work and starting a farm in the spring.

Politics: Construction is underway for a permanent wall around the capital building and the presence of national guard troops is being extended suggesting a permanent post in the nation’s capital.

A bill was brought before congress to turn Washington DC into a state allowing for two more senators.

An executive order signed 3 days into the new administration cancelled all funding for the border wall between the US and Mexico.

Redditors use Robinhood to kill Hedge Funds

A few days ago, the story broke of a group on Reddit pooling their money together to buy up stocks like Gamestop in order to drive the price up. The stocks were hovering around $3-4 per share and once the buying started it quickly rose. Several hedge funds had shorted the stock, betting that it would drop even further or that the company would go out of business, in doing so they shorted 140% of the stock available. This is illegal. Since the stock went up to almost $500 per share the Hedge funds were obligated to buy the stocks back for the new price costing them billions of dollars. Once it was learned that the Robinhood app was being used to buy the stocks and drive the price up, Robinhood ceased all buying of the stock and traders could only sell in an effort to drive the price down, taking the debt off that hedge funds. Most traders kept their stock, maintaining the price around $350. Robinhood has a partnership with the hedge fund group Citadel who is close to losing $1billion dollars due to Gamestop trading through Robinhood. The reddit page that this was organized on was taken down for hate speech. Currently the total loss for hedge funds is around 75 billion dollars and rumors are spreading that the Redditors are now looking at gold and silver which they presume to be undervalued.

To make matters more interesting, the new Treasury Secretary, Janet Yelling, was paid $810,000 to do a 45 min speech for one of the hedge funds connected to the Gamestop debacle. When the White house was asked about the obvious conflict of interest the response was “she is the first woman secretary of treasury.”

The End of Big Oil

The leasing of Federal land to oil companies was halted by the Biden administration. In the last four years the US became the largest producer of oil in the world. The excessive pumping of oil by Saudi Arabia and Russia drove the price down to almost negative numbers in early 2020. Now that fracking operations have come to a close and the life span of a fracking site is 1-3 years the time of oil dominance by the US is gone. Gas has already risen to $2.50 a gallon in Michigan and I expect it to go higher has demand rises from the reduction of lockdowns and economies opening back up. The price of oil will increase and the US will be back to importing what we need to use with an increased cost due to less oil on the market.

Food: Under one of the 42 new executive orders signed by President Biden 30% of all land in the United States will be preserve for wildlife by 2030. Included in this order is the authorization for farmers to be paid to not use their farmland and allow it to return to nature.

This is a copy of the law passed by Boris Johnson in the UK that would mandate 30% of the British Isles turned into a wildlife refuge. The island country is already limited as to how much food they can grow for their population. By using fossil fuels, they can produce enough food to feed 10 million people. The current population is 66.65 million and most trade has been cut off from the EU due to covid-19 restrictions and Brexit.

This comes at a time when all grains are in short supply especially soy. The department of agriculture adjusted their books for how much soy is in the US and it is less than originally anticipated. Currently, China is buying from the US and where ever they can find soy available. The crops that were expected out of south America fell short when a La Nina caused a drought for the season and no soy was grown.

Editorial:

What to Expect in the Coming Years

Biden has been president for just over a week as I write this and already 42 executive orders have been signed. Included in those orders is the theft of land to be turned into a wildlife refuge, the termination of oil companies in the US, and more surveillance on US citizens. Washington DC is occupied by National Guard troops and an increased level of law enforcement. The most popular president ever elected is acting like the president of Somalia who is not in control of his own country. More money is being printed to keep things moving and more lockdown measures appear to be coming our way while some states open back up. There is a game being played with the American people and we never asked to be a part of it. While the democrats are in power of the white house, senate, and house they act like they are at war with half of the country. People who do not follow their political ideology are labeled as domestic terrorist and some people are losing their jobs for having accounts on Parler and Gab.

A crunch is coming and it will come from all angles. With the loss of jobs many people will become dependent on the government for income. With less food national rationing will become a new policy while the production of food will be regulated to cause the shortage. Look forward to mandatory gun buy backs. Hunting will be regulated to the point that most people can’t afford the fees. Land will be seized by the government as the taxes rise. Welcome to the social credit score. With monetary transactions turning more towards digit currency how much a person receives or is allowed to spend will be dictated by the thought police. If you say something wrong in a conversation you could see you balance go to zero. We have already seen this with the cancellation of Trump as he is integrated back into normal society.

The fascist state is here and we should not be surprised it is brought to us by the same people who claim to be anti-fascist. A puppet sits in the white house signing papers presented to him as the rest of the staff waits for him to die. John Kerry wasn’t kidding when he said that the new administration would roll out the great reset at lighting speed and with nobody to question these orders. The only way to override an executive order is for congress to vote it down afterwards. With the Dems holding the senate and the house the executive orders will remain laws and the rest of congress will sit with their thumbs up their butts like the useless idiots they are. If they really want to do a great reset they could start with themselves.
