  • Fiscal Creep? It's a Drag

    2024-06-21

    Can we count the ways in which our governments pick our pockets? 

    Nick Hubble wonders if we can recognise the half of it.

    In an election year, you would think that this might be a hot topic... but I haven't noticed it discussed much, if at all.

    Yet monetary policy as shaped by the Bank of England plus the Treasury and the Chancellor of the Exchequer is the inevitable underlying cause - the same underlying cause that has been underlying since time immemorial.

    You'd think it would be a hot topic by now, but somehow not. Perhaps it's too well camouflaged, or perhaps being taxed makes us feel somehow virtuous?!

    Maybe we should ask our parliamentary candidates...

     

  • GESARA NESARA Federal Reserve QFS and All That

    2024-06-17

    I could just as well have entitled this article "Clif High Strikes Again", since I imagine that there are many good souls out there who may take issue with his analysis of the current global monetary situation and how it may be likely to develop.

    The fact is that everybody can be wrong, there have been and still are forces of deceit rampant everywhere, and making a 100% correct assessment of where we are and where we are going with monetary systems is especially treacherous territory.

    Everybody can be wrong, even Clif High!

    My own intuition is that if Clif is wrong, then nobody is right, but I can be wrong too...

    So here for the bending of the mind around intractable uncertainties, Clif High explains his thinking about where the global monetary systems have been, how we came to be where we now are, and what may develop in the proximate future.

  • What New Fakery is This?

    2024-06-13

    No, we can no longer take stuff we find on the internet at face value - but we knew that already, didn't we?

    Is this guy for real?

    Am I for real?

    Is NVidia for real?

    And are their simulation results for real, and... how would we know?

    Does that old maxim "Garbage in, garbage out" still apply? Or is it consigned to the trash-can?

    I wonder who supplies their electric power...

    And yes, it's your view that counts. Welcome to the hot seat!

  • The BCS - Quick Off the Starting Line!

    2024-06-05

    Yes, digital technology is the very foundation of our modern society, for better or worse. It's a tool that can be used, indeed really has to be used these days, and whether for good or evil is down to the motivation of the user.

    The BCS indeed has been at the forefront of regulating for the digital age, being the power behind the original Data Protection Act (whatever you may think of that fairly cumbersome package).

    So it's off to the races elections today with its proposals for the next government's policies on regulation of, and education about, the Great British Digital space in all its forms.

    Yes it has all the essential nods toward matters DEI which some may feel unnecessary, but my only caveat would be that DEI must never come at the expense of excellence, nor at the expense of freedom for

  • How We the People Can Change Our Democratic System!

    2024-06-04

    The First Past the Postsystem is regarded by many as unsatisfactory, and various countries use alternative systems designed to be "fairer" in that they give political parties seats in proportion to the numbers of votes that they receive at elections.

    Sounds good, no? But it cements power into the hands of the political parties, so that independent MPs become as rare as hens' teeth.

    Looking around the world, it's not obvious that these result in better outcomes. The increase in complexity simply makes it more difficult to understand (and possibly easier to obfuscate any cheating!).

    Anyway, in the UK we have a system which the incumbent MPs are extremely reluctant to change, so can we the people take the initiative and use it as is today to get what we the people want?

    So what is wrong with the way we work it currently?

  • Biggest Conspiracy Theory in the World?

    2024-06-04

    I hope that long-time readers may forgive me for featuring this film again, but events this year do seem to be building to a climax as established forms of government become ever more dysfunctional all around the world, warring parties are ever more irreconcilable, the threat of nuclear war continues to ramp up, and the WEF WHO and "global boiling" become ever more ridiculous.

    How can this be?

    It's a long story, partially explained in the video below.

  • Alternative Transcendence Incoming?

    2024-06-01

    Five years ago the notion of transcendence was not exactly on anybody's lips, beyond perhaps some religious cults or eastern faiths.

    It is true that the Bible relates that Christ ascended into Heaven after reappearing to his apostles following his resurrection, but modern day Christians have in general no expectation of ascending/transcending in like manner.

    I believe that the Buddha is believed to have transcended into Nirvana, although I could be wrong about this and the precise meaning of words here is probably elusive to most modern western populations.

    It appears however that "transcendence" (whatever its meaning) may be on offer from an unsuspected source, namely technology...  according to the good folk who are intent to bring us the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

  • Light to Dark 2 - Where Are the Fact Checkers?

    2024-06-01

    When Sir Keir is anointed PM shortly as many claim to expect, will things get better or worse?

    Well, the cost of energy is more of less the determinant of a nation's prosperity, so if it rises then all our costs wax and our real prosperity wanes, whilst if the cost of energy falls then our costs wane and our real prosperity waxes.

    Too easy?

    Well, never mind, we can trust our politicians to make it more complicated than that, and one of the ways they do this is to cherry-pick which costs they include and which they exclude, and then to apply fiendishly complex market (-fixing) mechanisms and stealth taxes that all somehow act to increase the price we pay.

    They have had many years of practice at this so it has now become an almost impossible task to extricate the robust reality from the exquisite intricacy of the calculations.

  • Flat Earth "Explained"

    2024-05-22

    The Flat Earth theory is much in prominence these days, and whilst I don't necessarily reject it out of hand, a lot of people cite biblical reference to support it, and we are discovering gradually that much of what we were taught in school and elsewhere is just flat out (sorry, couldn't resist) wrong.

    So should we give the flat earth theory credence?

    I wouldn't rule it out, although I wouldn't rule it in either, as there are too many facets about it that don't make much sense to me.

    Do we really live on a flat cake dish under a glass dome to keep us fresh and clean for customers in Café Universe? What does that say about the customers and the café? And about us?!

    Will it all make sense in the future? I cannot say, but I can say that this little exercise in explaining how it works is probably the best I have seen so far.

  • They Do Things Differently in Japan - Perhaps We Should Pay Attention?

    2024-05-20

    We could be forgiven for believing that ever since WW2, both the UK and Japan were under the same sort of financial control as the USA.

    Apparently not quite...

    But what does the future hold?

    Nick Hubble explains the impossibilities and contradictions... but what do they mean and can they be resolved?

    And what does demographic decline mean and how did Japan (and how might we) cope with it?

  • Regrettably, This Is About Covid - and Not!

    2024-05-17

    Regular readers will have noticed that I don't publish too much about Covid any more. It's not that it isn't important, but there's a lot else besides that needs saying these days.

    Still, Mike Yeadon has published an important summary (nothing new there, in either sense!) that serves as a very useful reminder that Covid was precisely conceived as a psy-op.

    Both he and I noticed quite quickly that Covid as a pandemic was seemingly exceptional in not creating any surge of excess deaths if we ignored reported cause of death. So either the cause of death was misreported, or there was no pandemic, or Covid itself somehow suppressed other normal causes of death.

    It turned out that as Covid arrived, flu flew away, just like that!

    Call me old-fashioned (thank you!) but Mike Yeadon explains it much better than

  • The Most Important Question in the Universe ...

    2024-05-16

    The most important question in the universe... is also the most annoying when repetitively asked by small children!

    "Mummy, why did that man tell me to cycle in the road?"

    "Because he's a policeman and you are not supposed to cycle on the pavement dear"

    "Mummy, why am I not supposed to cycle on the pavement?"

    "Because it's against the law dear"

    "Mummy, why is it against the law?"

    ...

    OK, enough of that, you get the picture. Children instinctively understand that the "Why" is important.

    Perhaps that tells us something?

    But when people in big organisations ask themselves the "Why" question and don't get any satisfactory answer,

  • Clif High Speaks to Dr Naomi Wolf About the Universe

    2024-05-14

    Clif is the only man I know who has (a) been able and (b) dared... to explain the mysteries of the universe, our place within it, and how 3D life death and time work to school us to ever greater perfection and power over the ages, all without resort to religious dogma. A dangerous man indeed, especially if you are of a dogmatic persuasion.

    All presented in the most matter of fact manner and based on his own experiences, rational thought, evidence, and logic. He bridges the gaps between "sciences" "religions" and "spirituality" (demolishing some long-held popular notions in the process) - whether we think he's onto something is up to each of us, but for my money (OK, his work is free of charge) he's one of the best revolutionary philosophers out there.

    As a bonus he runs through his current projects and keys us up for the incoming events that his work leads him to expect. Don't dismiss out of hand, he was right about last October...

    Pascale is a little difficult to follow in some places, and many, perhaps the majority, will take time to come to terms with all this. To say that it  is "the greatest story ever told" is probably an understatement.

    It's also the first time I've ever seen Riccado Bosi permit himself to be upstaged!

    The Green Dream Fantasia Machine

    2024-05-09

    Last night I attended a local town renewable energy "workshop", billed as an exploration of how our local area might develop its potential for local power generation. No actual planning, no actual commitments, just getting local people "involved".

    So being quite interested in the possibility of local power generation for local power needs (devolution of control of power provision may well be a step in the right direction), I decided to pay a call and attend.

    Not wishing to come empty-handed, I printed off afew leaflets summarising some of the more obvious points of relevance to power generation on the scale to which we have all become accustomed, and as I was one of the early arrivals I spread them around the available tables, subsequently chatting to a few of the attendees and volunteer staff to explain my offering. This was noted with politeness and subsequently
