Ways to Counter the Total Enslavement of the World – guest post by Roger Copple

What is increasing surveillance, technocracy, transhumanism, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, artificial intelligence and the age of robots leading to? The total enslavement of humanity. The technology has been developed that makes it possible to embed us with a microchip that tracks and ultimately controls us. If the technology is already developed, it will eventually be used. Our freedoms are being taken away from us–always for the greater good we’re told. This dystopian nightmare will be our future unless we resist nonviolently and show a better way that leads to peace on Earth. The choice is ours. 

There have been regional genocides throughout world history, but it is believed that the next genocide will be a global scenario of medical, biological, and political tyranny that would make Hitler’s holocaust look like child’s play–because it would be a genocide that encompasses the whole world. Researcher Alison McDowell uses the acronym (CITE): they want to capture, inject, trace, and erase (everything in us that’s natural or human).

As a result of the lockdowns, there has been an enormous transfer of wealth from the working and middle classes to the wealthy, ruling class. The wealth of billionaires has increased by a quarter (25 percent) in the past year, while many others (the 99 Percent) have undergone tragedy and loss. The world is being controlled by sociopathic oligarchs who control the dominant, official narrative. The lockdown of small businesses–for a virus that a miniscule percentage of people die from–has caused far more psychological, physical, and financial damage than the virus itself. 

How did humans live for 250,000 years without vaccines? Is it possible that we have been misled about what really makes us ill so that the medical establishment can make astronomical profits? Sickness and disease are more profitable than a healthy lifestyle.

Is it humanitarian concerns that drive vaccine companies to rush to produce magical vaccines for everything, or is it the enormous profits that can be made? Based on the information in the next 3 paragraphs below, the liability risks for vaccine companies are virtually nonexistent. It is a win-win situation for the vaccine companies. They cannot be sued. 

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 eliminates the potential liability of vaccine manufacturers due to vaccine injury claims. 

Children’s Health Defense stated, “On Monday, Feb. 22 [2021], the World Health Organization (WHO) announced what it billed as the world’s first global, ‘no-fault’ vaccine injury compensation program for those who suffer what WHO described as ‘rare but serious adverse events’ associated with COVID-19 vaccines.” Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. at Children’s Health Defense has stated that he is not against all vaccines, just the harmful ones. 

Covid propaganda1“The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP Act) authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to limit legal liability for losses relating to the administration of medical countermeasures such as diagnostics, treatments, and vaccines.” That quote was stated in this Congressional Research Services article (updated December 21, 2020) entitled The PREP Act and COVID-19: Limiting Liability for Medical Countermeasures.” 

It would seem that most of the individuals and websites that question the official narrative of the WHO and CDC regarding Covid-19 are from the political right, but there are a few voices from the political left as well. Where is the outrage that there is no public debate in the mainstream media about the wearing of masks, social distancing, the lockdown of the world’s economy, and the experimental vaccines for the coronavirus? Where is the debate of Germ Theory vs. Terrain Model? Experts with alternative opinions are also being censored on Facebook and YouTube. Wikipedia and the Fact Checkers convey what the Establishment wants us to believe. Many of the references at the end of this article will show that there are several medical experts who claim that the entire official narrative on COVID is a house of cards built on sand. It cannot stand up to close scrutiny. The Great Reset is a plan that makes the super wealthy even wealthier.

The Terrain Model of health and disease is something I had never heard of until the covid crisis began in 2020. Proponents of the Terrain Model do not believe that diseases can be caught from bacteria and viruses that invade the body from the outside; they argue that there is no original evidence that definitely proves that any germ causes any specific disease. The germs have never been isolated according to Koch’s Postulates. Terrain theorists believe instead that diseases are caused by things like stress, diet, environmental toxins, and eletctro-magnetic radiation. They would argue that “your body’s ability to heal is greater than anyone has permitted you to believe.” 

Like most people, I have always believed in contagious diseases, but as I learn more about Natural Hygiene and Terrain Theory, it is causing me to think that much of what the medical establishment teaches is based on a collection of unproved assumptions and suppositions. For example, On page 88 in the book “What Really Makes You Ill,” Dr Stefan Lanka, PhD–who studied virology as well as molecular biology, ecology, and marine biology–made this bold statement in a 2005 interview: “In the course of my studies, I and others have not been able to find proof of the evidence of disease-causing viruses anywhere.” 

Also on page 88 of the above referenced book, it is stated: “This statement that no ‘disease-causing’ virus has been directly proven to exist highlights another crucial fact, which is that the ‘presence’ of a virus in the body is not determined directly, but only through the detection of antibodies that the body is alleged to have produced against the virus; there is no test that is able to directly detect the presence of a ‘whole virus.’ The real purpose and function within the human body of these particles of genetic material contained within a protein coating are unknown; the claim that they cause disease remains entirely unproven.” On page 89 it is mentioned that in 2016 Dr Lanka won a case, after it was appealed, in a German court that demonstrated there is no evidence that proves measles is caused by a virus. 

Dawn Lester and David Parker, the authors of What Really Makes You Ill state on page 101 in the section of the book about bacteria, “Life is indeed complex and interdependent. The world is not a battleground in which the germs must be killed, because clearly what kills the germs will surely kill all life-forms. They conclude the section with a quote from Dr Stefan Lanka who said, “The basis of biological life is togetherness, is symbiosis, and in this there is no place for war and destruction.” 

It seems like people that follow the Natural Hygiene/Terrain Model and vegan diet are healthier than people who trust the Germ Theory of allopathic Western medicine and the standard American diet (SAD). In this video there is a heated debate (from 21 min to 53 min) between a terrain theorist (Dr. Andrew Kaufman) and a germ theorist (Dr. Judy Mikovits). If it turns out there are no disease-causing viruses/bacteria and vaccines are ineffective and dangerous as terrain theorists claim, then our standard medical schools and textbooks have grossly misinformed our health care providers. 

Rockefeller gained a monopoly in the drug and pharmaceutical industry by getting rid of the competition from natural, non-allopathic healing modalities. His commissioned Flexner Report published in 1910 made it possible. For more information about how Rockefeller did this view this article and video. The enormous profits that pharmaceutical and vaccine companies make are contingent upon the widespread acceptance of the germ theory. 

The 777-paged book What Really Makes You Ill was published in 2019 and deals with all the major diseases and epidemics throughout history.  The authors defend their views and also discuss Covid-19 in several video interviews at their website.  In my second reading of the book, I am still trying to be an open-minded skeptic. I need more proof before I stop believing in contagious diseases altogether, but I do believe that having a healthy mind, diet, and lifestyle is more important than all the vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs. The authors do not believe in global warming or climate change and instead discuss at great length many of the contaminating poisons and toxins in processed foods, household products, and in the environment. I am 70 years old, and if I have to get the covid vaccine in order to enter local grocery stores, I will probably be one of the very last ones to do so.  

Humans will collectively evolve spiritually when they stop the consumption of meat and all other animal products. There are ethical, ecological, and health reasons for being a vegan. “When we treat fellow Earthlings with due respect, the Earth will know peace.” A network of intentional vegan communities all over the world would help heal the planet and save the world. [NB. This is the author’s view and not that of Winter Oak Press]

bush and cheneyHuman evolution will achieve its highest purpose when it creates a world without empire–when strategies to divide and conquer caused by greed are transformed into desires for unity and compassionate sharing. One excellent analysis of empire is found in David Ray Griffin’s book Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World. 

One solution to the world’s problems would be public banking. In the United States it could replace the privately-controlled, central banking system of the Federal Reserve. Another solution would be the widespread use of biodegradable cannabis/hemp for industrial, medical, agricultural, and recreational purposes. 

Here is another way to promote and create world peace. By spending a few minutes a day studying the 195 countries and 7 continents from a geographical, economic, historical, and cultural point of view, we can appreciate the world’s enormous diversity. Using books, videos, and online websites, we can learn about the current, chief concerns of every nation. It would be great if neighbors could meet once a week to study together and share their concerns. Having found an excellent college textbook on European history (from prehistory to the present), I try to study it for 30 minutes a day. 

The motto at the UN website is “Peace, dignity, and equality on a healthy planet,” but how can the UN create world peace when there are 5 permanent members in the Security Council that have veto power? That is not democratic. Considering that billionaires like the Rockefellers were the original designers of the UN, it sounds like a club for the good ole boys, which is why we should no longer trust the Sustainable Development Goals of UN Agenda 21/2030. 

One of the best ways to find the honest truth is to live in a democratic society. In the United States, we need to have 7 political parties equally empowered instead of 2. With a new US Constitution, we could create more happiness in our nation and in the world. Ideally we should use a system of proportional representation to create a unicameral federal legislature composed of the 7 largest national political parties. But here is the most important change that could be made: Instead of being corporate-owned, the mainstream media could be publicly owned, and the 7 largest national political parties (each with its own worldview) could have proportionate control of it. Currently we have a corporate-owned media and a public-owned media that takes money from private corporations. How can honesty and truth come from that?

Each nation will be great when it helps make the world great. 

Each nation will be great when it helps heal the planet. We will live in a happy world when individuals and nations are able to become open, honest, transparent, cooperative, compassionate, and well-informed. We can create a world in which all the diverse elements, including religious fundamentalists, can live together peacefully. Let us create world peace before we die.

Valuing nationalism above world peace will never make the world a better place. A truly democratic world government is needed. The Earth Constitution is an excellent model for a democratic, federal world government, but if that is not acceptable there are other models that can be created–to oppose the authoritarian, top-down, autocratic, totalitarian, undemocratic New World Order of Deep State, Shadow Government, plutocrats and oligarchs that are currently controlling the world’s destiny to the peril of us all. 

covid paranoiaThere will be dark days ahead as we move into a pharmaceutical dictatorship characterized by more surveillance and contact tracing, technocracy, transhumanism, artificial intelligence and robots. There will be dark days ahead unless we resist nonviolently and show a better way. We are falling deeper and deeper into a technocratic trap that is leading to a literal hell on earth, which may ultimately result in the world’s destruction. Welcome to the Great Reset, the new normal, of the New World Order. 

Gandhi said we have to “be the peace we want to see in the world.” The perennial psychology of the Bhagavad Gita, the Buddhist concept of “emptiness,” and Christian agape love help us grow and find truth. The mystic Rumi said, “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” Rumi is right. However, an Earth-loving God would want to see evidence of a spiritual politics at local, national, and international levels. An Earth-loving God would want us to plan 7 generations into the future. 

A loving God would desire that the world be united. A loving God would not desire our nation to thrive as the rest of the world suffers. An Earth-loving God would not want world citizens to seek infinite growth on a planet with finite resources. A loving God mourns when She witnesses the deep conflicts among nations and the ecological degradation of the Earth. Nations will be great when they make the world great–when they start healing the planet. 

Some of the latest research in cognitive neuroscience and mindfulness meditation is showing that our habitual thoughts and beliefs are very important in determining both our mental and physical health. Research in epigenetics is showing that if we reprogram the brain and change the cellular environment, it determines which genes are expressed. Moreover, it has been estimated that 80 percent of our illnesses and diseases are related to lifestyle–our diet, stress, amount of exercise, environmental toxins, and electromagnetic radiation

John Taylor GattoJohn Taylor Gatto, who was twice voted New York State Teacher of the Year, broke all the school rules when he turned his high school students loose to travel all over Manhattan doing self-designed school projects. Gatto taught millions how to write their own scripts and be successful. Gatto discovered from his research that the 6 purposes of early public schooling in the United States were all about social engineering, preparing students to take their rightful place in society. For example, the first function or purpose of early public education was to “establish fixed habits of reaction to authority.” 

Gatto said the system is not broken. It was built this way on purpose. Gatto said that dumbing children down is useful to a certain kind of class-based command economy. Gatto himself encouraged Open-Source Learning, which means learning sequences are personally designed. Everyone you encounter in life is a potential teacher. In Open Source, teaching is a function, not a profession. Everyone can learn, and everyone can teach himself [or herself] how to learn and how to teach others. 

In Open Source, students are the active initiators. You either write your own script in life, or, by default, you become an actor in someone else’s script. The easiest way to destroy curiosity is to sit people in chairs and threaten them with the upcoming test. Plato, the Greek aristocrat, said in The Republic and The Laws: “The ordinary population is dangerous if they learn to think.” 

Before he died, Gatto was writing letters to Trump giving him advice on how to get elected president. Yet even socialist Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States, endorsed Gatto’s book The Underground History of American Education: An Intimate Investigation Into the Prison of Modern Schooling by saying, “It is a remarkable achievement…a pure indictment…I can’t remember reading such a profound analysis of modern schooling. I admire what you have done.”

The top-down control of the public school system is a problem that is still with us today. As a retired teacher, I have been an admirer of Gatto for a long time, but in the early days of my teaching career, I also started believing in the idea of neighborhood control of neighborhood schools. We could encourage and empower each elementary school district to create its own educational philosophy and school curriculum, possibly creating its own neighborhood school board. For more information, you can read my article: How to Improve Public Elementary Schools: Neighborhood Control of Neighborhood Schools to Build Intentional Community and Government from the Bottom-Up.

In the United States, we could build intentional community and state governments from the bottom-up. Every elementary school district can also become a voting precinct district as well. For more information you can read my article: The Elementary School District Empowerment System: Reorganizing State Governments from the Bottom-Up: From the Elementary School District, to the Township Level, to the County Level, Up to the State Level.

Encouraging and empowering neighbors in every elementary school district throughout the world to form intentional communities could potentially be a very effective way to improve local, national, and international relationships. Every neighborhood elementary school district can seek to be a model elementary school district for the township, county, state, nation, and world. I have also written my ideal of a new constitution for the United States, which you can find listed in the references.

Everything in the world and in the universe is interrelated and interconnected. We each have a purpose and mission that fits into the fabric of the wondrous unity and marvelous diversity of it all. And the best news of all is that no matter what happens in the outer world, we each have access to an eternal Fountain of Joy (our true nature, our higher Self) at the core of our being. 

Social evolution took a wrong turn ages ago when it shifted from egalitarian institutions and relationships to hierarchical (top-down) ones. But we can start rebuilding the world from the bottom-up — from the grassroots of every neighborhood and nation up to a truly democratic world government created by the citizens of the world — to disempower the fast ensnaring, top-down control of the Great Reset, the new normal, of the New World Order.

What are they trying to do to us?

A brief overview (also available as printable pdf)

Life has become very strange indeed for billions of people since March 2020.

We are no longer allowed to do what we always did, see who we want to see, live freely in the way we fondly imagined we were entitled to do.

Everything has changed. Now we have to check the latest restrictions on our movements and activities. We can’t go to concerts, football matches, pubs or cafés. We are told to avoid other people and to wear masks to cover our faces when we do share the same spaces.

Nobody knows what the future holds for them or their family. Insecurity and anxiety are rife.

To start with, these were supposedly emergency measures, but the weeks turned into months without any end in sight.

Now we are being told that it could be years before we are allowed to resume our lives and even then we are going to need a “vaccine passport” to carry out even the most basic activities.

So what is this all about? What are they trying to do to us?

The official story, of course, is that is all because of a virus, a contagion so deadly that everything had to be put on indefinite hold.

But more and more people are latching on to the fact that something is not quite right in all this, that we have been “played” for some hidden purpose.

While they might still disagree over the exact origins or severity of Covid, they are coming together in the realisation that it has been used as an excuse to usher in a new type of society – the New Normal that the authorities have been going on about since the very start.

What kind of world is it that they want to force us into?

Some significant clues come from reading and analysing the words of Klaus Schwab, head of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Switzerland, whose annual Davos conferences have for decades been bringing together business leaders and politicians from all around the globe.

Schwab has long been promoting something called the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is basically a digital society where absolutely everything, and everyone, is connected to the internet (“inclusivity”).

In his 2016 book The Fourth Industrial Revolution, he describes it as “unlike anything humankind has experienced before”, (1) “a revolution that is fundamentally changing the way we live, work, and relate to one another”. (2)

He enthuses about “billions of people connected by mobile devices”, and about robotics, 3D printing and nanotechnology which would all “build on and amplify each other in a fusion of technologies across the physical, digital and biological worlds”. (3)

Schwab also looks forward to more online education, involving “the use of virtual and augmented reality” to “dramatically improve educational outcomes”, (4) to sensors “installed in homes, clothes and accessories, cities, transport and energy networks” (5) and to smart cities, with their all-important “data platforms”. (6)

Some of what Schwab describes is frankly very disturbing, such as when he talks about technological devices becoming “implantable in our bodies and brains” and about us being able to “manipulate our own genes, and those of our children”. (7)

“Where do we draw the line between human and machine?” asks Schwab. “What does it mean to be human?” (8)

Most of us, of course, know perfectly well what it means to be human and have no desire whatsoever to be merged with a machine!

Schwab is well aware that his transhumanist vision is an unpopular and minority one and mutters darkly in his books about “societal resistance” (9) and how to advance “if technologies receive a great deal of resistance from the public”. (10)

So imagine his delight when, a few months after his WEF hosted an event acting out an imaginary global pandemic, (11) the Covid crisis provided the perfect excuse to sweep aside all that inconvenient public resistance!

Now was the ideal time to launch what Schwab himself calls “The Great Reset” and he immediately rushed out a book, Covid-19: The Great Reset, to celebrate his good fortune. (12)

Strangely enough, Schwab and co-author Thierry Malleret admit that Covid-19 is “one of the least deadly pandemics the world has experienced over the last 2000 years”, adding that “the consequences of COVID-19 in terms of health and mortality will be mild compared to previous pandemics”. (13)

They add: “It does not constitute an existential threat, or a shock that will leave its imprint on the world’s population for decades”. (14)

Yet, incredibly, this “mild” illness is simultaneously presented as the excuse for unprecedented social change under the banner of “The Great Reset”!

“It is our defining moment”, they crow. “Many things will change forever”. “A new world will emerge”. (15) “The societal upheaval unleashed by COVID-19 will last for years, and possibly generations”. (16) “Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is: never”. (17)

For Schwab, Covid-19 means full steam ahead for everything he has been wanting to foist upon us for years under the label of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

He and Malleret report with satisfaction that “the pandemic will fast-forward the adoption of automation in the workplace and the introduction of more robots in our personal and professional lives”. (18)

They are delighted with the “accelerating growth of e-commerce”, (19) with the “ever-more powerful expansion of e-sports”, (20) with the boom in online banking transactions (21) and with the fact that, thanks to Covid, “the world of education, like for so many other industries, will become partly virtual”. (22)

They declare chirpily: “Our lingering and possibly lasting fear of being infected with a virus (COVID-19 or another) will thus speed the relentless march of automation, particularly in the fields most susceptible to automation”. (23)

But why is all this so important for Schwab? What is it that makes him and his WEF pals so eager to push through the Great Reset, the New Normal and the Fourth Industrial Revolution on the back of Covid?

It is all about money and power, which are essentially the same thing in the degraded modern society in which we live.

On the most basic level, a certain type of business stands to make a lot of money from lockdown culture.

As Schwab and Malleret are pleased to note: “The combined market value of the leading tech companies hit record after record during the lockdowns… this phenomenon is unlikely to abate any time soon, quite the opposite”. (24)

There is also the massive global shift of wealth from public purse to private hands that has been justified by Covid. Another bail-out for the 0.1%.

Schwab and Malleret gloat: “In April 2020, just as the pandemic began to engulf the world, governments across the globe had announced stimulus programmes amounting to several trillion dollars, as if eight or nine Marshall Plans had been put into place almost simultaneously”. (25)

But there is something even more insidious behind all this.

The Great Reset is, ultimately, about resetting the capitalist economy by allowing it to expand into new realms, to privatise and exploit new “products” that it could not previously reach.

Those “products” are us, our lives and our world – human and natural “capital”.

Schwab hints at this agenda in his books when he writes about “new ways of creating value” (26) and looks forward to “an explosion in tradable assets, as all kinds of value exchange can be hosted on the blockchain”. (27)

What he is referring to is “impact investment“, a scam through which hedge fund speculators aim to make phenomenal amounts of money by gambling on people’s lives.

In order to be able to package us all up into “products” that can be processed by the algorithms and data bases of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, everything we do has to be digital.

Our identities and lives have to be constructed online so they can be used as the basis for the new capitalism.

The worst thing about impact capitalism is that it hides behind the pretence of doing good. It clings to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and uses all the correct language to make itself acceptable for people who see themselves as progressive.

So we have the nauseating spectacle of Sir Ronald Cohen, notorious capitalist shark and Tony Blair’s banker, claiming piously that impact capitalism “will lead us to a new and better world” (28) by “helping those in need and preserving our planet”. (29)

This, alongside all the virtue-signalling moral self-righteousness surrounding Covid, makes it hard for people to see the vile reality behind what is being planned.

Those promoting the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Great Reset employ armies of “journalists” and “fact-checkers” to hide the truth and dismiss researchers and dissidents as “conspiracy theorists”.

We all know how difficult it is to persuade even friends and family to look beyond the mass media propaganda and find out what is really happening.

But this is what we have to do, in every way we can.

The stakes are too great here, to simply turn away and hope it will all turn out all right in the end.

Schwab, Cohen and the like are herding us into a digital prison camp and if we don’t soon snap out of our collective complacency and make a bolt for freedom, future generations don’t stand a chance in hell of living decent and dignified human lives.

IMPACTOR ALERT!

by Paul Cudenec

Warning! Warning! Friends, citizens, fellow human beings! Rouse yourselves!

The Impactors are coming and they want to steal from us everything we have, everything we are and everything we could one day become.

This is no time to cower indoors, shocked and awed into spellbound submission by their satanic Spectacle.

While the emergency sirens wail and the tear gas of panic chokes and blinds the citizenry, the dark cohorts are fast advancing deep into our lives.

Come down into the streets! Help build our barricades and be prepared to offer up everything in defence of our freedom!

The Impactors are coming but they are not coming as they did once before, clad in boots of brutality and bearing banners of hate.

This time they are sneaking up in disguise, wrapped in the multi-coloured plastic packaging of pseudo-niceness.

They assure us that they are here to do good, to help the needy, to build back better, to save the planet.

But it is all just lies, lies, lies!

This “niceness” is their Trojan Horse, their secret weapon of mass manipulation, with which they hope to reach inside your heart in order to rip it out.

Make no mistake: they have been planning this for years. They have used their ill-gotten gold to buy the souls of thousands, to ensure that their loyal placemen occupy every post of significance in every relevant organisation and institution.

Watch how all these impactuary minions crawl muzzled on their knees and prostrate themselves before the false gods of sustainable servitude!

Listen how they all repeat the same unholy mantras of submission, obedience and silence!

And the Impactors’ army of eager little robot-impactivists, hired to quench the flames of authentic revolt, scurry around to reinforce their masters’ message and blast vitriol on those who refuse to bow to Power.

“Impactivate! Impactivate!” they scream mechanically. “Wrongthink is the enemy of progress! All enemies of progress will be impactivated!”

Let us be clear about this! The Impactors are not here to “save the world” or to “do good”.

Inversion of truth is an integral part of their demonic essence and their plan. Their real aims are the exact opposite of what their weaponised narrative pretends.

The Evil Impactorship wants to own and control us, our bodies and every moment of our lives. It wants to own and control every square inch of our world.

And through this ownership and control it aims to exploit, to suck dry, to feed itself fatter and fatter on the flesh of humankind and our Mother Earth until there is nothing left.

But wait! Perhaps I am going too fast? I forget that some of you don’t know what this is all about, haven’t been paying attention to the important voices warning of us of what is happening.

Have you heard about the plan to save the rule of the elite by finding new raw materials, new “products”, from which it can keep increasing its vast wealth and maintain its cancerous and disastrous growth?

Do you understand that, as capital seeks “sustainablity” by expanding into the virtual world, it wants to turn us all into investable commodities?

You will be aware that for decades now, all across the world, “austerity” has meant that public bodies have been starved of money with which, under the current system, they are supposed to provide services to the public, while giant corporations have found clever ways of not contributing to that social pot.

States have therefore been forced to borrow more and more money – from the very financial networks which have created austerity – and to go begging for cash from this same “private sector” in other ways.

But there is a cost to pay, of course! When the mendacious Money Men claim they are helping the state and therefore the people, in truth they are merely helping themselves, via the state, at the expense of the people!

Students of history will recall that this “partnership” between the public and the private, this merger of state and big business, was the economic basis of fascism.

Have you read about Klaus Schwab, about Michael Bloomberg, about Ronald McCohen, the Clown Prince of fast-food neo-feudalism, and his plan for pay-for-success slavery?

A big friend of war criminal Tony Blair, Cohen has been busy building up a new structure through which Big Money can suck away the lifeblood of society. This is “impact capitalism”, the new venture capital for the 2020s.

The idea is that because states can no longer afford to look after people in the way they promise, private businesses can step in to provide money up front to “solve” certain specific problems.

This injection of cash is not a gift, of course, even if the narcissists involved like to label themselves “philanthropists”. It is an investment.

When the “solution” is achieved, they will recoup their money, plus their own slice of the money that they have “saved” the state through their intervention.

Maybe this, in itself, does not shock you. But there are a number of complications, three of which I will now explain.

Complication Number One is that the “success” for which the Impactors are rewarded has to be “measurable”.

Calculation lies at the core of their scheme: the reduction of all life to a series of statistics on a financial dashboard.

These vampires might calculate the profit potential of an unborn baby girl. How much will this child cost the state? What is her social status, racial origin, state of health, likely career path?

Once the number-crunching algorithms  have come up with an answer, the Impactors can set out to reduce this cost to the state, which will allow them to claim a return from their investment.

But how can they track all this? How can anyone know how the child is advancing, what kind of social relationships she is enjoying, what she is eating and how her body is doing?

Total surveillance is required and total surveillance means the internet, powered by 5G or 6G. If the infant is constantly plugged into the matrix, interacting with artificial intelligence, diligently entering data about herself into the machine, then the Impactors have the evidence they need of how she is advancing. Or not.

If she is out playing with her friends in the park, or sitting dreamily in her bedroom surrounded by dolls and picture books, she is off-grid and providing no data. She is a waste of space and time. An unprofitable investment.

The Impactors want to push this further and further to get more and more profit. They want sensors in our bodies, in our minds even, to hoover up every conceivable piece of data about us.

They want to be able to create a digital twin of each and every one of us, a fake version of us reduced to the dead binary code which is the empty foundation of their life-hating cult of exploitation and accumulation.

And because they see us as their possessions, their slaves, they think they have the right to control us and cage us so that they can exploit us to the maximum.

They want to herd us into smart cities, strap us with wearable technology, monitor and control our every movement and interaction.

The Impactors’ twisted vision is of a world of geofencing and e-carceration, of facial recognition and predictive policing, of biometric data and sensor networks, of behavioural insights and eugenics, of nudging and shaping, of the internet of things and the internet of bodies.

These twisted elite psychopaths want us coded, counted and controlled, regarded as digital assets on a blockchain ledger, deprived of our natural health and dependent on constant updates from the Big Pharma machine.

They want us locked down permanently in a global police state, a digitalised new world order dressed up as some kind of progressive paradise.

We will be nothing but virtual livestock, forced by poverty and powerlessness to submit to their workforce pathways, their retraining and lifelong learning, racing to the bottom of the slavery-slope of a globally-outsourced remote-labour marketplace.

Complication Number Two is a useful spin-off from Complication Number One – useful, that is, from the perspective of the Evil Impire itself!

Impactor “success” is only measured by data on a dashboard. It does not necessarily have anything to do with real life, but is merely a pseudo-success resulting from the narrow criteria which have been set up to measure “outcome”.

The “solutions” that fake green businesses have long been trying to sell us for climate change are no solutions at all. They are products disguised as solutions.

The business sharks peddling these “solutions” simply don’t care that they will only make things worse by unleashing a new spiral of industrialism, extraction, expansion and thus destruction.

They don’t care because they can see no further than their immediate pecuniary self-interest. They don’t care because they have none of the higher values that make us truly human, only a low and narrow craving for more and more wealth and power.

The same is true of the “solutions” proposed on the social level by the Impact-vultures. A green tick on a screen is not a problem solved. A few digital hurdles apparently overcome does not mean that the person-product’s life has been improved in any meaningful way.

The underlying problems not only remain, but deepen in severity. Elites getting richer off the impact scam will mean everyone else getting poorer. Wellbeing and mental health are not going to be improved by forcing people into a digital panopticon.

Impact “social philanthropy” is a business based on a new economic model. A deceptive business that does not really want to eliminate poverty and misery but to mine them endlessly.

It has a vested interest in the continuation of a wide range of problems for which it can sell its “solutions”, which in reality are just sleights of hands, deceptive devices designed to make money from a lucrative global market of managed poverty and surveillance.

Broken people and broken lives spell endless profits for the impact parasites.

Complication Number Three is that the money made from these deals by the Impactors is only the tip of the iceberg.

As Alison McDowell has long been at pains to tell us, we are looking here at “fascism rolled out by hedge funds”.

The vampires’ really big money will come from speculating on the financial products they have created from our lives.

As dispossessed people become increasingly dependent on the state, the Impactors will take advantage of this to pitch each of us as a debt product, creating securitised markets in privatised welfare.

These massive new equity markets for hedge funds will see your personal circumstances packaged and traded as liquid assets like bundles of mortgages, with some financial vultures gambling on you achieving your outcomes and others against.

These markets have to be real-time so that the global investors can bet on them and that means your life has to be led online. If you are offline you are not providing data for their gambling game and they cannot make money from you.

Stay at home! Stay online! Save capitalism!

In order to make money from this new speculative game, in which you and I, our children and our grandchildren, are the counters, the Impactors have first got to set it up.

The rules of the game have been set out by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, whose apparent worthiness is just another layer of deceit in the Impactors’ phoney world.

Certain goals are officially labelled “good”, meaning that public authorities are encouraged and even obliged to pour funds into achieving them and that the impact businesses profiting from this are treated as having a special holier-than-thou status that might, for instance, liberate them from the inconvenient need to pay tax.

And, again, it is here that the impactivist brigade step in to prop up the lies and confirm that “good” as defined by the Impactors really is “good” as seen from all perspectives, even from the left flank of the system.

Oh yes! They like to paint themselves as latter-day saints, as enlightened do-gooders, all those con-artists, crooks and charlatans conspiracing to mislead and enslave us!

And how will the Impactors create the infrastructure of the game from which they will profit? By forcing their prisoners to build their own prison! Education of the traditional kind is so out-of-date. Training is what the young need now, in the shiny New Normal. Training to code the impacterialist machine.

Play our game. It’s just a game. Lose yourself, your reality and your future in our game.

When we have successfully helped create the structure of their Fourth Industrial Revolution transhumanist hell, we will be replaced by robots and algorithms.

And this marvellous world will be poisoned and pillaged to the point of no return.

Unless, of course…

Unless, together, we see through the Impactors’ lies!

Unless, together, we refuse to comply and conform!

Unless, together, we tell them we will neither build nor play their game!

Unless, together, we are willing to fight to the death for the sake of life!

1. Breaking point draws near

Netherland riots

A year after the start of the Covid crisis, the fault lines of major social conflict are becoming apparent.

On the one side, authorities are ramping up the repression as they seek to push us all permanently into their New Normal of techno-fascist global slavery.

On the other side, as the Great Reset agenda becomes more widely noticed and understood, resistance is growing, albeit largely under the radar of corporate media subservient to the dictatorship.

“Europe is in revolt against lockdown. Protests, riots and civil unrest have broken out across the continent. People are starting to reach breaking point,” says this February 2021 report by Paddy Hannam of Spiked Online.

Dutch people reacted angrily and courageously against a police-state curfew imposed on their country for the first time since it was occupied by the (original) Nazis.

Netherland riots2

Youths torched a COVID-19 testing center and threw fireworks at police in the fishing village of Urk, reports DW.

“Police in the capital of Amsterdam also used a water cannon to disperse an outlawed anti-lockdown demonstration on a major square ringed by museums,” adds AP.

John Jorritsma, mayor of Eindhoven, where major riots broke out, warned: “We’re on our way to civil war”.

The Dutch love of vrijheid (freedom) was considered worrying by US pro-system propagandist Frida Ghitis, who described how “political extremists, hoping to shake up and undermine the system, blended into the crowd, turning the protests into an explosion of violence”.

Denmark protest2In Copenhagen, Denmark, “crowds of black-clad protesters have taken to the streets, launching fireworks, torching an effigy of Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, and clashing with cops”.

There have also been big protests in Denmark’s second biggest city, Aarhus.

In Brussels, Belgium, hundreds of people defied a police-state ban on protesting, with nearly 500 arrests.

Brussels protest

Meanwhile, some 10,000 people marched through the centre of the Austrian capital, Vienna, to protest against “Covid” restrictions and to demand the resignation of Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.

There were reports of police removing their helmets in apparent solidarity with the crowds.

In France, resistance has been focusing on opposing the Macronist regime’s fascistic Global Security legislation, a cause which has mobilised part of the traditional left as well as Covid dissidents.

The brutal way in which protests have been attacked by riot cops has caused widespread outrage and fuelled concerns over the direction in which the country is being taken.

sécurité globale manif

On Saturday February 13 protests continued all across the country (Brest, Strasbourg, Montpellier, Chapelle-en-Vercors…)

There is a call for angry citizens from across France to descend on Versailles, symbol of the pre-revolutionary ruling elite, on Saturday February 27 to demand the restoration of freedom for the people and the end of the Macronist regime.

And in London, UK, the first anniversary of lockdown, on March 20, is set to be greeted with a huge protest in the capital, with a target of 50,000 people in London at a location yet to be announced.

Unite for freedom 20.3.21

All the time, all across the world, people are standing up to the global tyranny, often on a very local level.

For instance, on Monday February 15 “anti-lockdown protesters clashed with police” at Eaton Mall in the Oakleigh area of Melbourne, Australia.

Oakleigh Austr protest

On the same day, a group of protesters “representing a range of different ethnicities” gathered outside New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s offices in Auckland to protest against the latest lockdown measures.

In Jerusalem, “ultra-Orthodox” Jews have been at the forefront of lockdown resistance.

Reports The Times of Israel: “Some demonstrators blocked traffic, burned trash bins, damaged vehicles and heaved stones and other objects at officers.

“Police used water cannons to disperse the protest and arrested at least one person on suspicion of disturbing public order”.

Protesters have labelled Israeli police “Nazis” and “kapos” – Jews who collaborated with fascism during World War II.

Israel lockdown protest

In Lebanon, people took to the streets of Tripoli, Beirut, and Sidon for several nights to protest against the two-week extension of curfews and lockdown.

In Vancouver, Canada, protesters rallied to demand an end to PCR testing.

In the USA there have been anti-vaccination protests in Los Angeles and elsewhere, with system propaganda warning of a “dangerous new anti-vaccination movement growing in California”.

When the system’s mouthpieces warn of bad omens and dangers, we know that there is still hope that we can win this great battle for our freedom.

2. Guided by the light of life

woodcut sun

by Paul Cudenec

The last year has been an extremely disorientating one for those who have always used a traditional political compass to navigate their way through the contemporary world.

All the readings that previously served to guide their thoughts, affiliations and reactions have been madly scrambled.

What used to be left now looks more like right, human rights have been rebranded as bio-hazards, telling the truth is now regarded as spreading dangerous misinformation and what was once the dividing line between state and corporate power now looks like just another link in the 21st century chain of total control.

Our political compasses don’t work any more because we are no longer living in the old manufactured political reality, in the liberal spectacle of “democracy” and “human rights” and “rule by consent”.

The illusion has been abandoned and now there is nothing above us but raw force and nothing below us but fear, obedience and servile conformity.

boot stamping 2

It is hard to find words that do justice to the empty, odious and inhuman future that the global elite are trying to impose on us.

They want to stop us from breathing, from living, from loving, from talking, from singing, from laughing, from dancing, from dreaming and from thinking or acting for ourselves.

They are prepared to use every weapon they have, from toxic brainwashing propaganda to brutal physical force, to destroy humanity as we have known it, to crush the last vestiges of organic community that have survived their previous onslaughts, to break all real connection and communication between us and reduce us to total dependency on their matrix of techno-fascist control.

The struggle ahead of us is no longer about fine-tuning the kind of society we want to live in, about discussing exactly where our priorities lie or the way we want to organise things.

Our fight is for the survival of free human beings and the natural world which gave birth to us.

In order to find our bearings in this struggle we have to throw away our now-useless political compass, and the outdated ideological maps that go with it, and take our position on the fundamental basis of right against wrong, good against evil, light against darkness.

Here too, confusion abounds, since, with their usual low trick of inverting truth, the corporate pharaohs have been busy disguising the means of our enslavement as tools for our liberation and their own goals as being for the “sustainable” and “inclusive” benefit of all.

We are not going to be able to tell good from bad if we listen to their version of reality, a version which is being zealously spread by the robot armies of sycophants and mercenaries they have assembled to advance their plan.

guruInstead, we have to listen to what Indian tradition calls the jagad-guru, the universal guiding wisdom to be found inside each one of us, deep within our hearts.

One of the great tragic traps in the Christian religion is the suggestion that the divine light only shines through one figure, Jesus Christ, and that to achieve redemption the rest of us miserable sinners have merely to obey the commands of those who claim to represent him in our world.

In fact, every single one of us is a small and transcient manifestation of the whole universe and we can all allow the light of truth and liberation to shine through us, if we can only rid ourselves of all the petty fears, vanities and jealousies that block its way.

This is what we all have to do now, at this time of unprecedented danger. We must open ourselves up to the light and trust it to guide our thoughts, words and actions in this holy human war against the enemies of life.

3. Nevermore on the anarchist response to Covid-19

nevermore cover

Extracted from an article in the first issue of a new review from Canada, Nevermore.

The Covid19 crisis has presented a challenge to anarchists and others who believe in a fully autonomous and liberated life.

We write this today because we feel too many people who in better times carry these political and philosophical banners are setting aside their core beliefs – or worse – by twisting and contorting those beliefs in wholly disappointing ways, conforming to the mandates of technocrats and politicians, and are convincing themselves that doing so is some grand act of solidarity with the most vulnerable people in our societies.

We say loudly that if the political tenets you promote and encourage in the best of times whither and shrink in times of crisis, then your political tenets are worthless.

Any system of organization or any belief about human autonomy that needs to be set aside when history lays a challenge at our feet, is not worth keeping around when the emergency subsides.

For truly, it is times of difficulty and challenge that place our ideas on the scale of utility to tell us whether or not they are as robust as we may believe.

As anarchists, autonomy over one’s own mind and body are essential to our values. We believe that human beings are intelligent enough to decide for themselves how to assess their surroundings and to make determinations on how to go forth living in a way that meets their needs and desires.

Of course, we recognize that this autonomy comes packaged with genuine responsibility not only to one’s self, but to those with whom they are in community – including the non-human world.

anarchistflagWe certainly recognize that individuals may be asked for their cooperation in achieving a collective goal. But we also recognize the fundamental importance of consent in such situations, and that force and punishment are antithetical to an anarchist worldview.

That is why we write today. To reach out to our friends, our comrades, our intellectual and philosophical allies to ask that if you haven’t yet, that you begin to seriously critique and question the state responses to the Covid19 pandemic that we are witnessing around the world.

We have watched over the preceding year, meekly, quietly, as other anarchists have toed the lines drawn by state bureaucrats. We have remained silent when witnessing anarchists act with hostility towards those who have pushed back against state mandated curfews and lockdown orders, only because those doing the most pushing are affiliated with right wing politics, unfortunately ceding this ground to the right wing, instead of forging their own critiques of state policy and thus providing an intellectual home for those who have in isolation grown antagonistic towards those in power who are trifling with our lives.

The impetus for this behaviour amongst anarchists seems to be rooted in their desire to do well by those in need, and as this particular crisis is being caused by a virus, that seems to unfold as an enthusiastic willingness to accept state mandates and to shame those who would violate them.

It is admirable to want to do well by the elderly and infirm, but that instinct is where the conversation should begin, not where we should resolve to set aside our fundamental principles and to justify this by taking technocrats and politicians at their words, using the pronouncements of sanctioned experts as a gospel by which to claim our lack of resistance to mandate is because the mandate makes such good sense.

Politicians lie. They select the analysis and the technicians who promote their agendas.

Corporate executives line up to support them, knowing that the public purse is open to them when they do so. And the media, always wanting to be in the good graces of those with political and fnancial power, manufacture consent in twenty-four hour news cycles. We know this.

We have libraries full of books that we have read and recommended explaining in detail the workings of this reality. Therefore, to be critical of politicians who declare that their emergency violations of basic freedoms are warranted by crisis is always a necessity.

To be critical of pharmaceutical executives who tell the public that only they hold the keys to a future of freedom and safety, and of the media who act as propaganda machines in service of official narratives, is always a necessity.

Anarchists seem to know all of this instinctively when the war politicians want us to wage is a war fought with literal weapons, when the victims are more obvious, when the propaganda is more nationalist, xenophobic, and racist.

nevermore2But with the Covid19 crisis, the war being waged by those in power is ostensibly a war to save lives, and this shift in presentation seems to have effectively hacked the hearts and minds of so many anarchists who at the bottom of everything, carry a deep and genuine care for others.

But we must pull back and think critically about our situation. It is forgivable when in the throes of a quickly unfolding emergency, while lacking the information necessary to make confident decisions, to want to go along with the experts that are put before podiums when they ask that we all pull together for the greater good.

That is no longer the situation. Much time has passed since SARS-COV-2 was a mysterious new respiratory virus. Data has been pouring forth from researchers around the world, and there is now no excuse for fear-based decision making, for accepting as gospel the perceptions and prescriptions stamped by the state and distributed by their lackeys in the media.

We believe that this crisis is like all the crises that came before it, in that it is a period of time in which those with power and wealth see an opportunity to extend their claws and to steal more of both.

It is a moment of collective fear and uncertainty they can exploit to seize more control and to enrich themselves at the expense of the masses of humanity.

nevermore

The only thing that seems to separate the Covid19 crisis from those that came before it, is just how willing so much of the public (sadly including many anarchists) is to willingly and enthusiastically support the loss of their own autonomy.

As anarchists, there are principles we return to as guiding stars in the dark night of the unknown, and these include freedom, autonomy, consent, and a deep belief in the ability of people to self-organize for their maximum benefit as individuals and as communities.

No one knows one’s needs better than they do themselves, and truly, most people have self-preservation instincts that cause them to select behaviours that lead to their own safety and survival, as well as that of those they care for.

At the outset of the pandemic, when information was scant, we very much witnessed people making choices to distance themselves from crowds and gatherings they did not believe were essential, while they also began efforts to support and care for those who might be more vulnerable to a circulating respiratory illness that did not have well-established treatment courses within the medical field.

While we welcome information and data, even that which is unpleasant, that describes the continually unfolding circumstances, we also believe that people need to be trusted to analyze that information.

The current paradigm has the state and their selected technocratic experts filtering the available data and only highlighting that which supports the policy decisions they already decided to implement without any public input.

greenanarchy2Information and analysis that can be considered “good news” has been largely ignored by the state and their technocrats, while also being blacked out by the media.

“Experts” can always be found to justify horrors.

Indeed, we would likely be hard pressed to find a case in recent history in which massive crimes against humanity did not come packaged with a stamp of approval from some consortium of experts whom everyone else was asked to blindly trust.

The Covid19 pandemic is no different, and as anarchists we just ask that you remember that debate, critique, and dissent are all essential components of societies that value liberation and autonomy.

We ask that whatever you decide about the efficacy of lockdown measures, that you recognize no situation, no matter how dire it may seem, warrants edicts from on high that use the threat of force and violence to accomplish their aims.

Our steadfast commitment to human autonomy, and to our belief that no authority is valid without the consent of those it is exercised over, is what makes anarchism a thing apart from other political philosophies.

We will not abandon this commitment, and hope that you will not either.

4. Safe & Sanitized: interview with artist Jordan Henderson

charset=Ascii binary comment

Fine artist Jordan Henderson has just released his third painting exposing the COVID-19(84) deception. The following is a interview with Jordan conducted by John C. A. Manley regarding the new work, Safe & Sanitized.

JOHN: Why do you associate a face mask (which is promoted as a life saving miracle) with a skull (a long dead head)?

JORDAN: The association of the face mask with the skull illustrates what COVID-19 restrictions really are: a cause of death, suffering and loss of freedoms. The people most likely to die of “COVID-19” are those who believe the official narrative. For example; they lock themselves away, live in fear, get a test, test positive, agree to a ventilator and are then killed by the ventilator.

JOHN: The mask appears not to merely be a face covering, but a gag. Can you speak more about this?

JORDAN: The mask acts as a gag, because forced covering of the human face is a direct assault upon freedom of expression. It is nothing less than suppression of dissent, “Oh, you see through the lie, well you must act as though you believe in it. Under threat of fines and imprisonment, we order you to act like you believe the official lies, and we order you to force anyone entering your business to do the same”.

JOHN: Now, masks are common enough these days; what about the handcuffs?

JORDAN: The handcuffs represent the lockdowns and restrictions on movement and travel. Blood is suggested through streaks of red paint underneath the handcuffs as a reminder of the very real deaths brought about by COVID-19 mandates. The blood is kept in the shadows, almost ignored; the same way the destruction caused by government mandates is ignored by the establishment media and figureheads.

JOHN: There’s nothing more sanitary than a bleached skull. Can you speak about the brilliant title you chose?

JORDAN: The title Safe & Sanitized is intended as dark humour, for the purpose of illustrating the hypocrisy of the Medical Police State. Death, destruction, censorship, imprisonment, persecution, and the ensuing loss of health and freedom for the general population are carried out under the guise of “safety” and “sanitation”.

SafeSanitizedJordanHatworkJOHN: You said you felt driven to paint this horrific image. What message are you trying to convey?

JORDAN: My drive in creating this image was the desire to visually encapsulate the end goal of all COVID-19 policies — the subjugation of the general populace. The subjugation of a human or group of humans by another human or group of humans is the common denominator to those things universally regarded as evil; murder, torture, rape, genocide, and slavery, all involve one human or group of humans being forced under the authority of another human or group of humans.

JOHN: Despite the horror of it, there is a definite and striking beauty to the painting.

JORDAN: While the subject matter is dark, the painting itself is meant to be aesthetically pleasing; hands, skulls, and blood, all have a beauty of their own. The beauty of these three elements (hands, the skull, and blood) hopefully remind the viewer of how marvelous human beings are, thereby increasing the viewer’s empathy for any human being forced under the authority of another.

JOHN: Thank you very much for taking the time to both paint it and answer my questions. Where can readers go to purchase the original or prints?

JORDAN: The original is for sale at JordanHendersonFineArt.com. And prints, as well as stationary cards, T-shirts and other memorabilia, are available at jordan-henderson.pixels.com.

John C. A. Manley has spent over a decade ghostwriting for medical doctors, naturopaths and chiropractors. Since March 2020, he has been writing articles that question and expose the contradictions in the COVID-19 narrative and control measures. He is also completing a novel, Much Ado About Corona: A Dystopian Love Story. You can visit his website at MuchAdoAboutCorona.ca.

5. Wanted: a new resistance movement

Edge Fund poster

Earlier this month we published a new investigation presenting shocking evidence that UK “leftists” and “anarchists” are being secretly funded by the world of impact capitalism.

The implications are historic and merit being widely digested. Since the article is long and detailed, here is a summary of its contents and conclusions.

* In 2013 many UK anarchists received an email from Sophie Pritchard of Edge Fund looking for “groups that need funding for their work to bring about justice and equality”.

* Edge Fund has gone on to fund various antifascists and anarchists, plus Black Lives Matter and Rising Up (the network behind Extinction Rebellion) and many “intersectional” groups.

* Edge Fund is closely linked to EDGE Funders Alliance (Engaged Donors for Global Equity) in the USA, whose sponsors include the Rockefeller Foundation.

* Rose Longhurst of Edge Fund and EDGE Funders Alliance is part of George Soros’ Open Society Initiative for Europe and of the Atlantic Fellows scheme founded by Chuck Feeney, described by billionaire Warren Buffett as “my hero and Bill Gates’ hero”.

Bill and Melinda Gates2* Edge Fund’s Longhurst is also part of Bond, “the UK network for international development and humanitarian organisations”, which is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

* Edge Fund chair Isis Amlak is a trustee of Olmec, a “social enterprise” which supports BLM but which is in fact clearly belongs to the world of impact capitalism.

* Edge Fund co-founder and coordinator Sophie Pritchard is closely linked to Alliance Magazine, which is partnered with a range of impact businesses and New Philanthropy Capital (NPC).

lankelly chase Thinking Big* Edge Fund activities have been funded by Lankelly Chase, which was involved in the world’s 1st social impact bond alongside J Paul Getty Jr Charitable Trust, K L Felicitas Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation and Ronald Cohen.

* Katie Boswell of NPC, a fan of Edge Fund who like them writes for Alliance Magazine, is a member of Klaus Schwab’s Global Shapers.

Edge Fund is clearly an integral part of an impact capitalism scam, “wokewashing” hypocrisy of the first order, in which profiteers pretend to be acting in the interests of the very people they are exploiting.

A “radical” movement so thoroughly riddled with corporate corruption has obviously come to the end of its useful life and is completely discredited.

We need to start again with a radicalism that challenges the system to the core, a resistance to the global wealthy elite that is deeply and fundamentally opposed to everything they are promoting in their bid to further enslave and exploit us.

revolutionaries2Our resistance needs to be based on solidarity and unity in the face of oppression, rather than on divisive classification and fetishisation of people along lines of race or gender.

It has to be rooted in a love of freedom, independence and self-expression rather than grafted on to a fearful cowed obedience to authority and its propaganda.

We need to say clearly that the values we cherish have nothing to do with the low money-lust of the corporate crooks and their sweaty dreams of endless profit and power.

Turning our backs for ever on their corrupt transhumanist death-cult politics of artifice, hypocrisy and deceit, we need to stand tall and loudly proclaim our belief in nature, in humanity, in truth, in beauty, in justice, in the life energy itself.

6. Georges Bernanos: an orgrad inspiration

The latest in our series of profiles from the orgrad website.

georges-bernanos2

The Civilization of the Machines is the civilization of quantity opposed to that of quality”

Georges Bernanos (1888-1948) was a French novelist and commentator who strongly criticised the industrial capitalist machine.

After a youthful flirtation with the far-right Action Française, he went on to condemn fascism as “disgustingly monstrous” and was a prominent supporter, from exile in Brazil, of the Free French Forces resisting the Nazi occupation during the Second World War.

From a radical organic perspective, he is significant for his outspoken opposition to the industrial capitalist world and its crushing of the human spirit.

In a 1944 interview Bernanos said: “This world, described stupidly as modern as it were sufficiently justified by the very fact of existing today, has enormous means at its disposal, and notably a propaganda system whose power, efficiency and all-embracing scope simply cannot be compared with anything man has previously known or even imagined.” (1)

la france contre les robotsThree years later he penned the essay ‘France Against the Robots’ (‘La France contre les Robots’), in which he declared war on those he described as “the imbeciles”. He condemned the machine-civilisation and its technology, declaring: “The Civilization of the Machines is the civilization of quantity opposed to that of quality”. (2)

Bernanos warned that the headlong plunge into productivism, consumerism and money-making was threatening humanity and its spiritual well-being.

He wrote: “We can understand nothing about modern civilisation if we don’t first accept that it is a universal conspiracy against all kinds of interior life”. (3)

Jacques Allaire nicely summed up Bernanos’ analysis of the industrial-commercial malaise: “Having has replaced being. In our modern societies, blinded by the speed with which they can produce, the sense of having has become the one and only sense. Having is even the essence of being”. (4)

Inevitably, Bernanos’ critique of industrial capitalism led to him being accused of being backward-looking or reactionary. But this was far from the truth and he always insisted that it was not a question of going into reverse gear but of changing the direction in which are moving forward.

He wrote: “The rule of Money is the rule of the Old. In a world which has succumbed to the dictatorship of Profit, anyone who dares to put honour before money is automatically reduced to powerlessness. It is the spirit of youth which is rejected. The youth of the world has a choice to make between two extreme solutions: surrender or revolution”. (5)

Enemies of the modern world is a new fictional work by Winter Oak writer Paul Cudenec, a triptych of novellas in which we find ourselves in chillingly close proximity to conspiracy theorists, denialists, technophobes and extremists, to anti-social misfits who turn up their noses at global smart governance, insist on the value of a reality that is not virtual and cling to outmoded notions of naturalness, community, truth and freedom… The book can be download for free here.

1.  We will prevail!

Bristol Nov 14

It was back in March 2020 that we first reported signs of resistance against the Covid-themed totalitarian coup.

We hoped back then that this would quickly develop into a largescale uprising that would quickly see off this unprecedented global power grab.

Things didn’t quite work out that way, though, and opposition has been much slower to build than we would have imagined.

But now, as 2020 draws to an end, things in England and elsewhere are finally hotting up.

People who were pro-lockdown are seeing through the illusion, and GPs and hospital staff are voicing their huge concerns about the mRNA vaccine and so-called hospital statistics.

There’s a definite swing occurring – and not in the technocrats’ favour, either.

Since our last Acorn bulletin came out, there have been thousands on the streets of the UK.

This has not just been in London (see this also), but also in the likes of Manchester, (plus this link and this), Bristol (this also), Liverpool (plus this), Brighton (and this), Nottingham, Edinburgh, Neath, Stroud and Bournemouth.

This video round-up from the StandUpX site shows some recent action.

All over Europe, too, people are rising up against the 0.001% and their police state.

From Rome to Leipzig (also this and this), they have been showing their dissent.

Water cannon were rolled out to attack enormous and diverse crowds in Berlin.

There have been protests in Paris (also this), Montpellier, Nice, Bordeaux and all across France.

The Italian revolt has continued in Florence, Cosenza, Reggio Calabria, Genoa, and elsewhere.

Protests have been sweeping Denmark, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine and Albania.

In Ireland, freedom campaigners (or “conspiracy theorists” in the language of the corporate media!) set up big LED roadside displays across the country declaring “Covid tests are fraudulent”, and “Take off your masks!”.

There was an impressive performance protest in Austria, with people masked and dressed in full Hazmat suits, like mesmerised zombies, wearing signs saying “our breath kills”.

In the USA, protesters burned face masks as they marched through Manhattan following similar demonstrations in California, upstate New York and Minnesota.

US protest dec 2020

US protest dec 2020b

In fact, there have been protests all across the world, from Argentina to Serbia, Australia to South Africa and Malawi.

More protests are planned in coming days and weeks, not least the big New Year’s Eve Freedom Protest street party in central London from 9pm on Thursday December 31.

Most of this dissent goes unreported by corporate media, of course, as the system struggles to keep a lid on the rebellion.

As awareness of the Great Reset agenda spreads around the world, the likes of the BBC and Wikipedia are being used to insist that it is all just “conspiracy theory”, despite it having been set out very clearly by Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum.

Authorities are hurriedly drawing up new “online safety legislation” to eliminate what they define as “harmful content” from the web.

Scientists who challenge the Covid agenda are being locked up in mental hospitals and anti-vaccine campaigners are being found dead in mysterious circumstances.

The global capitalist mafia have evidently invested an enormous amount of time and resources in planning this enormous coup.

They are not willingly going to abandon it. The repression will be ratched up yet further and many of us will pay a price for our resistance.

But we have to keep going. We cannot give up. We are not mere spectactors to the unfolding of history, but active participants. We, and our actions at this time, are the future unfolding!

And we should know that if we stay strong, if we all hold our nerve in the face of everything, we will prevail!

Together, in joy and determination, we will defeat the dictatorship.

2.  Naming the enemy

New Normal NWO

We badly need a new vocabulary to describe what is going on in the world today.

Under cover of Covid-19, a long-prepared and widely-orchestrated attempt is being made to enslave humankind in a hi-tech global police state.

But what do we call these people and their odious system?

Everybody seems to use a different term and bickering over which one is most appropriate distracts attention from the essential question of how we can get together and bring them down.

anti-capitalist-protestMany of us have been content to use the word “capitalism” to describe the combination of wealth and power behind this clique.

This term now seems increasingly inadequate, partly because not all of those who we would identify as capitalists are complicit in this coup, but mainly because some supporters of the “new normal” seem to be framing it as kind of post-capitalism.

A dictionary definition of capitalism: “An economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange, characterized by the freedom of capitalists to operate or manage their property for profit in competitive conditions”.

As far as the first part of that sentence goes, we are entering deeper into capitalism, with private ownership and exploitation of everything and everyone a key aim of the Great Reset.

But the final reference to “competitive conditions” sounds less relevant when we are looking at a total monopoly imposed by global governance.

So what do we call the people behind the Covid Coup, the people laying claim to ownership of our lives, our land and our future, if we don’t call them “capitalists”?

Hammer and sickleThere are some out there who think these dictators are “communists”, because of the strong element of state control involved.

This impression is reinforced by the deliberate use of “redwashing” and “wokewashing”, as well as the usual corporate greenwashing, to disguise the true nature of what is happening and thus sell it to a part of the population.

But are we really talking about what the same dictionary defines as “a classless society in which private ownership has been abolished and the means of production and subsistence belong to the community”?

No. Obviously not. We are not looking at a classless society at all, but a society divided between a tiny elite class of absolute rulers and a vast lower class of exploited serfs.

The means of production and subsistence will not even theoretically belong to us all, even via the intermediary of a state which is supposed to incarnate the interests of the community. They will remain firmly in private hands.

What we are seeing is a lot closer to the fascist model of pretending to be “socialist” in order to use the power and the resources of the state to prop up private industry.

But there are some problems in using the term “fascism”, as many people associate fascism and Nazism primarily with the specifically nationalist and racialist narrative of its original proponents, which does not apply to the new global version.

nazi-flags

On the other hand, the rival term “globalist” is problematic because it is too vague about the nature of those it describes. We need to be clear that we are not just talking about people who think in terms of a global situation, or who have an internationalist approach, but about a class of billionaires who already own much of the world and want to stitch up the whole thing.

The term “technocrat” is pretty accurate, when you look at the history of that movement, but is often understood as meaning simply rule by experts, with the implication of some kind of political neturality.

The problem is that we have never been in this situation before, in which a conspiracy of the wealthiest people in the planet is so overtly using the lies and police-state tactics previously associated with authoritarian communist and fascist regimes.

Transhumanism7And we have never before been in a situation where this sociopathic ultra-rich elite seems prepared to ditch the vehicle that brought them this far – capitalism – and switch into a dictatorship built on raw power.

We also have the added element of the twisted transhumanist ideology which seems to lurk behind these sinister neworks.

So what name can we agree to give to these powerful enemies of humanity, of freedom, of community, of nature, of friendship, of love, of everything that makes life worth living?

When we raised this question on Twitter recently, we were deluged with good suggestions.

Technofeudalism

The covidian cult
Techno-despotism
Techno-tyranny

3. Shattering illusions

shattering illusions

Contemporary society is pure spectacle, “the superficial reign of images” as Guy Debord put it.

“All that once was directly lived has become mere representation,” he said. “What is false creates taste, and reinforces itself by knowingly eliminating any possible reference to the authentic”.

He also wrote of efforts “to turn secret agents into revolutionaries, and revolutionaries into secret agents” and warned of the use of “provocation, infiltration, and various forms of elimination of authentic critique in favour of a false one which will have been created for this purpose”.

We already knew, before 2020 got underway, about the greenwashing falsity behind the climate capitalists’ agenda, with their astroturf rebels, their manufactured patron saint and their fake-radical promoters.

But this year has seen even more layers of deception peeled away.

Bill McKibbenThe faux-green scam was brought to a much wider audience by the documentary Planet of the Humans, to the wrath of Bill McKibben of the group 350.org, who came under particular scrutiny.

And the launch of the Covid coup revealed that vast swathes of people who had appeared to be opponents of the system, even anarchists, were in fact staunch defenders of Authority and its Big Businesss sponsors.

It also transpired out that the same financial networks funding Extinction Rebellion have also been doling out money to a wide range of “activist” groups working for the Great Reset aim of ““systemic change”.

Rob Hopkins of the Transition Movement turns out to be heavily compromised by links to powerful corporate networks, adored by climate capitalist Bill McKibben and happy to regurgitate the “storytelling” slogans of the Great Reset.

Hollywood “radical” Sean Penn has been outed by UK investigative journalist Vanessa Beeley as receiving funding from Bill Gates and promoting the Great Reset.

Celebrity “communist” activist and academic Angela Davis not only publicly backed neoliberal warmonger Joe Biden in the US election but has now launched her own fashion label, helpfully plugged by The Guardian!

Naomi KleinNaomi Klein, erstwhile darling of the anti-capitalist movement, who once warned us about  The Shock Doctrine often used to accelerate corporate control, has finally stopped pretending to be on our side.

With people increasingly clued up about the Great Reset, Klein was wheeled out on the once-interesting The Intercept site to declare that any such information was “a viral conspiracy theory” which  “blends together legitimate critiques with truly dangerous anti-vaccination fantasies and outright coronavirus denialism”.

Yes, that’s right. She actually used the phrase “coronavirus denialism”!

It increasingly seems that all the “left-wing” and “radical” heroes that we have heard of – via the corporate media! – are not what we thought they were.

They appear instead to be gatekeeping puppets, promoted in order to place limits on our dissent and shunt it into directions that best serve corporate agendas.

Vandana Shiva 3One of the few exceptions to this betrayal seemed, until very recently, to be Vandana Shiva, whom we have often mentioned on this site.

She is, after all, a famous opponent of the bio-tech industry and critic of Bill Gates’ empire and even declared in a November 2020 interview: “The Great Reset is about maintaining and empowering a corporate extraction machine and the private ownership of life”.

Surely her heart is in the right place? Well, we would love to think so, but unfortunately the evidence is stacking up that there is something awry here.

Simply retweeting the ubiquitous Bill McKibben would not be a serious matter, on its own.

vs bill McK

But we do wonder why Dr Shiva has chosen to sit on a body called the World Future Council (catchprase “Solutions for Our Common Future“).

She is pictured on their website, sitting alongside Anders Wijkman (to her right).

VS WFC

Wijkman is “an opinionmaker and author”, says the World Future Council. He is honorary president of the Club of Rome and has been assistant secretary-general of the United Nations and policy director of the United Nations Development Programme.

“As of March 2017 Anders is chairman of the Governing Board of Climate-KIC – the largest public-private partnership on innovation for low-carbon solutions in the EU”.

We were also alarmed to learn that Dr Shiva had writen a positive review of The Green New Deal by Jeremy Rifkin, a book published in 2019.

The other names lined up in praise of this dubious tome are in themselves cause for concern – there is Paul Polman, former Unilever boss and one of the shadowy Extinction Rebellion business backers, billionaire Richard Branson and Anne Pramaggiore of US nuclear energy giant Exelon.

As for the author himself, Rifkin is an enthusiast for the technology of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (which he confusingly prefers to term the Third Industrial Revolution!), in other words for AI, robots and “digital infrastructure”.

This video makes it clear that, despite all the usual lip service to the environmental crisis, his real passion is for industrialisation, economic growth and profit.

So why would a genuine environmental and anti-capitalist campaigner want to endorse his work?

Dr Shiva’s own latest book is entitled Oneness vs. the 1%: Shattering Illusions, Seeding Freedom and now features “a new epilogue about Bill Gates’s global agenda and how we can resist the billionaires’ war on life”.

Let’s hope that her apparently laudable political position is not yet another illusion which is about to be shattered in these revealing and tumultuous times.

4. Here comes Santa Klaus!

santa kDo you remember the Christmases we used to have when we were young, in the good old days, way back in the 2020s?

I used to get so excited about it all when I was a kid.

I remember one year waking up in the night to see a large figure looming in the doorway of my bedroom. I was amazed! I thought it was Father Christmas himself! But it turned out, of course, that it was only the Biosecurity Police checking up that I was socially distancing from my teddy bear.

In the morning we could hardly wait to unplug ourselves from our beds, fight our way out of our plastic anti-viral protection tents and rush to check the contents of our digital stockings.

If you’d done what you were told all year long, there would be all sorts of Citizen Credits in your account, for games, films, chat. Once I’d even earned 40% of the cost of the next year’s People’s Vaccine! I was the happiest kid in town, I can tell you!

After breakfast we liked to go out for a Christmas morning stroll, so out came the treadmills and virtual reality headsets.

My mum used to like v-walking on the beach in Portugal on a spring afternoon, my dad preferred the Alps on a bright winter morning, my brother usually went for the Australian outback at night and I loved to e-stroll through the Scottish highlands on a summer evening.

But I remember my grandad telling me that he always took his v-walk around the back streets of Coulsdon on a grey and drizzly winter day, because that was what December 25 had always meant to him. Sad old duffer!

By the time lunchtime arrived, all the extended family were there. In the chatroom.

space foodWe took off our masks, put on our plastic hats and tucked in. Mounds of protein-rich lab-grown meat substitute with genetically-modified fake-veg chunks and lashings of synthetic chemically-enhanced gravy, followed by freshly-printed Christmas pudding strips sprayed with post-custard dessert fluid! De-bloody-licious!

Later we would all be glued to our screens to watch the traditional Christmas Day address from the Global Supreme Ruler himself.

What kind of a world would we be living in today if Santa Klaus had not come down our collective digital chimney with his generous gift of technology-driven inclusive exploitation, ensuring secure and sustainable corporate control for one and all?

5. Jaime Semprun: an orgrad inspiration

The latest in our series of profiles from the orgrad website.

jaime semprun

“In the old days it was forbidden to think freely; today we have gained the right but lost the ability”

Jaime Semprun (1947-2010) was an influential anti-industrialist writer, translator and publisher.

Estranged from the mainstream left because of his rejection of the modern mindset, he warned that we lived in “an era of acceleration and falsification” (1) controlled by a “mercantile tyranny”. (2)

Semprun echoed René Guénon in judging that so-called “progress” had in fact brought about severe cultural decline amounting to “the loss of all quality”. (3)

And he was scathing about those whose semi-radical thinking left the way clear for right-wingers and fascists to recruit those with a deep-seated aversion to the industrial capitalist world.

He warned in 1993: “We mustn’t neglect people’s need to attack existing society, or simply to counter it with a new conception of the world and of the life they could lead in it. We have already seen, with fascism, the high price of allowing our enemies to fulfil this need”. (4)

For Jaime-Semprun article

Semprun worked with fellow orgrad inspirations Guy Debord and Miguel Amorós and was a great admirer of George Orwell.

After being involved in the Situationist International, he was a key figure in the Post-Situationist movement and founded the journal Encyclopédie des Nuisances, which later became a book publisher.

Semprun translated and published writing by Orwell which had not previously been available in French, along with work by Theodore Kaczynski, Jean-Marc Mandosio, René Riesel and Chuang Tzu. (5)

He was also known as a leading opponent of nuclear power in France, publishing the essay La Nucléarisation du monde in 1980.

Semprun regarded industrial capitalist society as fake in both its whole and its parts. Reforming certain aspects of it would make little difference, he argued.

“Today, demanding to eat healthy food, for example, is in itself revolutionary”, he wrote, “because in order for that demand to be met it would be necessary to abolish the totality of the social relationships under capitalism”. (6)

hypermarché

Like John RuskinWilliam Morris and Herbert Read, Semprun felt an overwhelming aesthetic distaste for the modern industrial world, arguing that its character was made quite clear by its sheer physical ugliness. (7)

He called out those who adopted pseudo-radical postures while actually defending the assumptions of this foul system. His 1976 pamphlet Précis de récuperation targeted postmodernists like Michel Foucault, Jean-François Lyotard and Gilles Deleuze on this account, but Semprun identified the problem as polluting much of the so-called left.

The root problem was the general acceptance of the notion of “progress” as a means of interpreting history.

For Semprun, explains Patrick Marcolini, this notion was merely “a product of the bourgeois industrial age”. (8) For him, contemporary technology and science carried no promise of liberation – “on the contrary they form part of the structures of domination which have to be brought down”. (9)

The bourgeois-industrial concept of progress was accepted uncritically among supposed dissidents because of a state of mind that was itself a by-product of the general lowering of quality in industrial times, said Semprun.

dumbed down

He condemned “amnesia, identification with modernity and the hatred of critical thinking”, (10) commenting: “In the old days it was forbidden to think freely; today we have gained the right but lost the ability”. (11)

In Dialogues sur l’achèvement des temps modernes he has his character Ziffel declare: “What we are most missing today is individuals. Marxism told us that man is only the product of the social conditions in which he lives and that his individual conscience is a mere illusion, his freedom a sleight-of-hand and so on. And voilà, just through writing such horrible stuff, it ends up coming true”. (12)

Semprun shared Orwell’s distaste for conformist groupthink, and condemned modern followers of so-called democracy with their “remote-controlled indignation, their way of expressing all together and to order their hatred of those denounced to them as totalitarians, fanatics, or as racists, terrorists, in short as lunatics putting progress itself in danger”. (13)

The left-wing identification with modernity had lent a strange meaninglessness to terms such as “reactionary”, used to attack anyone who opposed the contemporary industrial capitalist machine.

“Everyone is so caught up in what they call progress that you could go as far as to say that if there were today any consistent reactionaries, they would certainly be mistaken for revolutionaries”, (14) wrote Semprun, but not without stressing that “criticism of the modern world is something too important to be left to reactionaries and nostalgists”. (15)

In common with other organic radicals and the anti-capitalist romantics identified by Michael Löwy, Semprun saw nothing wrong with looking to the past for inspiration as to how we might imagine another, non-capitalist, world, referring in a posthumously-published essay to “a past which was still filled with a future that we can imagine could have been, which could still be”. (16)

solutions

He was one of the first to expose the emptiness of the now-dominant strand of “environmentalism” which remains firmly embedded within the modern mindset and seeks “solutions” to environmental crisis in the development and production of yet more industrial technology.

He warned, with Riesel, that “precisely the same intellectual and material means used to build this world threatened with ruin, this teetering edifice, are now being deployed to diagnose the problem and recommend a remedy” (17) – which did not augur well for a successful outcome.

Semprun died in 2010, before “climate capitalism” raised the art of greenwashing to new levels of duplicity, but had astutely predicted that “the illusion-merchants have happy days ahead of them. During the disaster, the selling goes on”. (18)

As a genuine revolutionary, he of course completely discounted any possibility of ever creating a better world by reforming or adapting the very industrial capitalism which got us into this mess in the first place.

In Dialogues, the two characters discuss the difficulties in fighting a dominant system whose processes of production, distribution and domination, whose economic and social relationships and whose ideologies are so tightly and inextricably intertwined. Remarks Kalle: “You know full well how to deal with Gordian knots”. (19)

For those not familiar with the legends surrounding Alexander the Great, he is said to have sliced the knot in two with one powerful stroke of his mighty sword.

The Great Reset (aka Build Back Better, The Fourth Industrial Revolution, the New Normal or the New Deal for Nature) is an attempted global capitalist coup on a scale never before imagined. The more that people are aware of what this vile billionaire elite are really up to, the less chance they have of getting away with it, so we have set up a Great Reset page, an ever-expanding collection of resources to help spread awareness and, therefore, resistance!

A timely bundle of in-depth reports and analysis on the anti-lockdown revolts spreading across Europe has been published by Crimethinc. In particular, it demolishes the divisive claim that the protests are “right-wing” and should therefore be snubbed by anarchists and the left, noting: “Like the Gilets Jaunes movement in France, most of the protests across southern Europe involve a contradictory mix of people”.

“They’re looking at an operating system for the world. It’s essentially as if the world were remade by the CIA to profit hedge funds. How does capital circulate if nobody is making any money and everyone’s in debt? You create a new game where the poor can be gambled on as investment commodities”. Crucial insights into the Great Reset agenda from Alison McDowell in this video talk.

“Can you see what’s happening? Anywhere people can meet up to be sociable and entertained is under threat. As things currently stand it feels like there will be no end to this. We face a more atomised, lonely and fearful future. One where an increasing amount of our interactions will be digital rather than face to face. A depressing future where many of us will be merely existing rather than truly living”. A powerful warning from South Essex Radical Media.

Make no mistake, for all the greenwashing around the 5G-enabled Fourth Industrial Revolution, it spells further disaster for the natural world, as a new report into 5G from the US state of New Hampshire concluded. Meanwhile, Plymouth Sound, a stretch of sea off southern England, is to be home to “the world’s first 5G ocean-based marine testbed”, according to reports. This “will enable ultrafast download speeds and low-latency 5G connectivity to support the development of new marine technology”. Did anyone consult the fish?

Dismantling tyranny

by Paul Cudenec

The only good thing to have come out of recent nightmarish months is that a lot of people have had to think seriously about the way they see the world.

I have not been exempt from this phenomenon, of course, and have been forced by circumstance into serious bouts of ideological soul-searching, but am delighted to report that, as 2020 draws to an end, I remain attached to the same principles with which I began the year!

What has changed, though, is that I now feel the need to provide certain additional explanations to my overall viewpoint which I would not have previously considered necessary.

Take, for example, my position with regard to the nation-state. I have been outspoken in my condemnation of nation-states and nationalism in my writing, but the global fascist coup has reminded me that a different perspective exists.

This says that truly independent nation-states, free from the chains imposed by all those globalist institutions from the World Bank and the IMF to the United Nations and the World Health Organization, would not have succumbed so meekly to the global capitalist putsch.

I can concede that the resurgence of anti-globalist national sovereignty, in the Global South as well as in Europe and the USA, might well be the best short-term bet for seeing off this horrific attempt to permanently enslave humankind in a techno-fascist world dictatorship.

However – and I would emphasise that word! – it is crucial to remember that nation-states were the first form of centralised authority imposed on free human communities and that the nation-state is the tool with which the exploiting class has long kept us in line.

The weary old mantra of “we’re all in this together” is the language of nationalism, in which the supposed common “national” interest of the serf and the billionaire, and their shared hatred of “foreigners”, is supposed to override any sense of social injustice on the part of the former.

If we ever want to taste real freedom, we will have to decentralise power completely, to the community level

The nation-state, with its fake “democracy”, its “legitimate authority”, its controlled media narratives, its public figures, its academic institutions, its police and its monopoly on violence, is the very real and immediate means by which we are oppressed.

Globalism may be the prison, but the nation-state is both the cell in which we are held and the prison guard standing outside.

If we ever want to taste real freedom, we will have to decentralise power completely, to the community level.

Unless we dismantle the national level of tyranny as well as the global one, everything will remain in place for the same thing to happen all over again.

A second issue I have been contemplating has been the issue of private property. My past criticism has been levelled at the system of private property (particularly land ownership) rather than at individuals who own their own home or farm.

In this society, we have no choice as to whether we want to participate in the system of private property. If we are not home-owners then we are home-renters. It is no better to be ripped off by a landlord than by a building society. People get by as they can.

When I first saw the World Economic Forum propaganda proposing a future in which we “own nothing”, my blood ran cold for a moment. Had I had been inadvertently promoting their agenda through my criticism of private property?

No, because the globalists’ vision is, like everything else they come out with, a lie. They certainly want the vast majority of human beings to own nothing, but that is because they want to own everything themselves – including those selfsame human beings!

Their “own nothing” option in fact represents the next step in the domination of private property, rather than its reversal. They want to consolidate the power of their own ultra-rich ruling class to the extent that the rest of us are left with nothing at all.

It is important to note that it is only through the development of private property as we have hitherto known it, that they have been able to reach this point.

Over many centuries, the ruling class has used its property to create wealth, used its wealth to acquire property and power, used its power to protect and increase its property and wealth.

Our overlords may have thrown us a few crumbs from the table as a sop to keep us quiet – convincing us that we too were part of their “property-owning democracy” – but it was always only a matter of time before they would try to push the thing a step further and grab everything for themselves.

Again, if we were able to pull back from the brink of this global totalitarian coup, there would be no point in returning to the pre-Covid status quo, as all the conditions would remain in place for the global ruling elite to try the same thing again, a few years down the road, using a different trick.

We need to prevent property from being used as a form of power and exploitation over others and develop organic form of communal democracy and co-operative ownership which cannot be hijacked by greedy tyrants.

I do not want to see land or homes owned either by billionaire capitalists or by the state, but by people, in ways that suit them best, on the most decentralised local level possible, in a spirit of sharing, caring and mutual aid.

The third issue I want to address here is that of business. I hate the “business” ethos which was notoriously instilled in the UK under Margaret Thatcher. Greed is good. Anyone who makes money (off other people) is a hero and the rest of us are all losers.

So it was strange to find myself sympathising with the plight of smaller businesses in the face of the lockdowns.

Strange, but perfectly explicable when I looked at it more closely.

As with the previous two thorny issues, what we are seeing today is the massive amplification of the “business” principle which I oppose, not its negation.

The Great Fascist Reset is, after all, being promoted by a business organisation, the World Economic Forum, and all the bias built in to the so-called “sustainability” agendas of the EU, the UN and so forth concerns prioritising the ongoing growth and expansion of business “stakeholders”.

The version of “business” sold to the little people by the global financial mafia was nothing but a gesture, a carrot dangled in front of them to persuade them to consent to the marvellous capitalist system and to stand with the billionaires against any “freedom-hating” left wingers who wanted a fairer distribution of wealth.

Now, that little game has outlived its usefulness and the people who thought they were living the free-market dream will find themselves herded into the same electronic concentration camps as the rest of us, as the slave-masters move to seize complete economic and social control.

The seeds for this have been there all along, from the moment that our societies started moving away from old-fashioned community values and towards the worship of money above all else.

Ferdinand Tönnies

In the words of the German sociologist Ferdinand Tönnies (1855-1936), this was the historic transition from Gemeinschaft (traditional community) to Gesellschaft (modern commercial society).

The French radical Georges Lapierre talks about the dominating “cosmovision” of a society based entirely on money: “In a mercantile society we are all merchants, our heads are filled with the thoughts of big capitalist merchants, we all think about money”.

If there is a Great Awakening from the Great Reset, there is no point in falling back into the money-thinking that has progressively corrupted our world for the last 500 years or more.

Just because things are worse now, with the Covid coup, than they were a year ago, or ten years ago, does not mean that we should aim to return to that previous step of the process.

I keep thinking of the apocryphal story of the man who fell from the top of a skyscraper and, as he passed each floor on the way down, was heard declaring “so far so good!”

While it may have been better to have been alive in 1960 or 1980 or 2000 than in 2020, rewinding to any of those stages would only condemn us to live through the same thing again, as we plummet towards the current calamity.

We need to rediscover what it means to be truly human

Instead, we need to go back to the point before we fell off the edge and take a different civilizational direction.

We need to rediscover what it means to be truly human, to cherish value over price, communal belonging over personal self-interest, honour above wealth.

We need to look deep inside ourselves and search out and nurture everything that makes us noble, authentic, generous and kind.

We need to remember that we are animals, that we are part of nature, part of the living cosmos and that respect for everything around us is essential for our happiness and survival.

That ancient human wisdom is still there, even though it has long been marginalised and spat upon by the same venal parasite class which is currently trying to steal everything from us and turn us into their slaves.

Our task is to find it, to drink it in deeply and then to share it as the health-giving elixir of a free and natural future for all of humankind.

Rob Hopkins: transition to what?

by Paul Cudenec

Rob Hopkins (pictured above) has become one of the iconic figures of the environmental movement, not just in the UK but throughout the world.

“There’s no one on earth who’s just done more stuff – and inspired more doing – than Rob Hopkins,” as one admirer has put it.

He started the Transition movement in Totnes in 2005 and soon Transition Towns were springing up all over the country.

I went along to a few events where I lived, in Sussex, attracted by the idea of encouraging a shift away from industrial capitalism and consumerism into a healthier decentralised way of being.

There were some pleasant people involved, some of whom I already knew from local eco-campaigning, but it was not quite my thing.

The Post-It note brainstorming sessions, rejection of “political” activity and much use of the UK state-approved term “resilience” all put me off a bit.

But I didn’t hold it against them. There is more than one way of campaigning and it’s unrealistic to imagine that everyone will do so in the way we personally would prefer.

I initially felt the same thing, from afar, about Extinction Rebellion until the penny dropped and I realised they were an astrofurf organisation being used to manipulate good-hearted people for hidden corporate ends.

So I drifted away from the Transition Town crowd with no hard feelings and didn’t really give them much more thought until last month.

It was then that I came across an essay entitled ‘The Great Transition: The Promise and Lure of the Times Ahead‘ written by something called the Global Scenario Group in 2002.

This announces: “The global transition has begun — a planetary society will take shape over the coming decades”.

The imminent “Planetary Phase of civilization” would involve “Global governance” and “Globalization”.

This “Great Transition” sounds very much like the Great Reset announced by Klaus Schwab and his World Economic Forum, also branded as the Fourth Industrial RevolutionBuild Back Better and the Future We Want.

I was struck by the fact that this Great Transition document came out just three years before Rob launched his own “Transition” project in Devon.

But I was also very aware that he seemed to be proposing something very different – relocalisation rather than globalisation. Surely there could be no connection?

I decided, out of curiosity, to have a look at what Rob has been doing and saying, to see if this could shed any light on the matter.

The first thing I read was an article from August 2020 in which Rob sings the praises of the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, which he describes as “one of the few rays of hopeful sunshine in the UK’s currently bleak political landscape” and “rather brilliant”.

There were a couple of strange lines in Rob’s article.

For instance, he says that the future brought about by this Bill would “would feel like all of the brilliant inventiveness of the Industrial Revolution compressed into 20 years”.

“Brilliant inventiveness of the Industrial Revolution”? That’s a peculiar turn of phrase for anybody dedicated to combating the deadly damage caused to Mother Nature by industrialism!

He also writes: “This Bill would give a clear signal to the education system, to business, to investors, that this is now the ‘new normal’…”

The new normal? Now where have we heard that before?

Browsing through Rob’s blog, I next noticed that he had been the “keynote speaker” at an event in Belgium on November 10, 2020.

Here he mixed his chosen theme of “the human imagination” with talk about “bold international action”, “governments acting with vision and purpose”, “individual lifestyle changes” and businesses acting with “a willingness to reimagine everything”.

If that last turn of phrase sounds familiar, it is perhaps because it had been used earlier in 2020 by Klaus Schwab: “We need to reimagine everything… What we need is a Great Reset”.

Hmmm.

I was also a little concerned to see Rob using the term “storytelling” in his talk, explaining how public opinion could be shaped by “a longing created not by graphs, by statistics, by policy, but by storytelling and imagination”.

“Storytelling” is a term often used by corporate manipulators to describe the opinion-forming propaganda with which they try to mislead us into endorsing agendas we would normally reject. (See this article, for instance, or this).

Rob continues: “So much of my work is about creating longing for that low carbon world”. “Creating” longing?

I decided to take a closer look at the event at which Rob’s speech was “widely applauded by the 200 or so participants” – the Philippe de Woot Award Ceremony organised by the Louvain School of Management at UCLouvain.

The award in question “aims to promote sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility”.

Previous ceremonies have involved talks on topics such as “Citizen Participation in Smart Cities”, “The case of the Kenyan renewable energy sector” and a demonstration that “product carbon audits are a means to create value in supply chains“.

The award scheme boasts an impressive array of “financial partners“.

These include medical equipment business Iba (“We dare to develop innovative solutions pushing back the limits of technology”), chemical companies Solvay S.A. and BASF, steel wire business Bekaert, house-building firm Blavier, supermarket chain Colruyt, “professional services” business Deloitte, luxury leather goods firm Delvaux, multinational banking group ING, finance firm Investsud, minerals business Lhoist, mining company Umicore N.V, “clean energy” firm Engie (still using coal power stations in Chile), and, last but by no means least, GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals.

Philippe Emmanuel Marie Baron de Woot de Trixhe

The award is named after Belgian aristocrat Philippe Emmanuel Marie Baron de Woot de Trixhe, who died in 2016, six years after it was first handed out.

Baron De Woot was evidently a very well-connected individual, having been a member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, the Royal Academy of Belgium and the International Academy of Management.

He also “served on the board of directors and advisory committees of several national and international corporations” and was “an active member” of the Global Responsible Leadership Initiative, an organisation founded in 2004 by the European Foundation for Management Development and the United Nations Global Compact.

The affinities between the late Baron’s world of business and global governance and Rob’s eco-friendly Transition project may seem hard to grasp – why did they choose him as their “keynote” speaker? – but this alignment is not a one-off.

In 2016, Rob’s work was cited by none other than Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum.

But then maybe they were just returning the favour, since in 2011 Rob had dedicated a blog post to discussing the “importance” of a WEF graph on “global risks”.

Delving further into Rob’s archives, I found this statement from March 2009: “I am delighted to be able to announce that I recently became a Fellow of Ashoka, the international organisation that supports social entrepreneurs.

“Becoming an Ashoka Fellow brings some great resource to Transition. It brings a stipend, which means for the first time I can be paid fulltime for the work I do, it also brings some amazing project support, both from Ashoka itself and from the range of organisations that offer pro bono work to them”.

Ashoka is a somewhat mysterious organisation which is funded by “charitable foundations” and wealthy individuals such as Antonis Schwarz, now of Guerrilla Foundation (see this article on the Winter Oak site) and provides advice to organizations such as the World Bank.

It is worth noting that the video was posted by Andres Falconer, who at the time was managing director of Ashoka UK and went on to become “head of partnerships” at the World Bank Secretariat for the Global Partnership for Social Accountability.

In August 2020 Falconer turned up as host of an online event for Climate Investment Funds, jointly staged with Climate Capital Partners (“We create climate finance solutions to help clients thrive in an ever-changing global environment”).

Another interesting aside regarding the video is that it involves what Rob describes as “some good people from Transition Stroud”.

Stroud in Gloucestershire, UK, would ten years later be hailed by The Guardian as “the gentle Cotswold town that spawned a radical protest”, as it was from here that Extinction Rebellion first surfaced.

Says the April 2019 report: “Two of the group’s three founders, Gail Bradbrook and her partner Simon Bramwell, live in the town.”

As regards the actual content of the video, Rob talks about decentralisation and relocalisation, as you would expect, but also about “resilience” and the need to come up with a “Plan B” for the economy.

“A Plan B for business” was later to become the main slogan used by Richard Branson’s B Team (founded in 2012), one of the key hubs of the global “climate capitalist” network.

Rob identifies three challenges facing the world in 2009, a year after the economic crash.

These are peak oil, climate change and “the rapid contraction of the economy, which is something that is quite historically unprecedented”.

Why is that a challenge from the green point of view that Rob is supposed to represent? If you want to see an end to climate change and environmental destruction, then the contraction of the capitalist economy would be a good thing, wouldn’t it?

The contraction of the capitalist economy is only a problem for the capitalists who get rich from that economy.

Is the “challenge” for them in fact to keep their wealth and profiteering going in the face of an imminent collapse of their fraudulent global Ponzi scheme? Does the goal of “sustainability”, for them, really apply to capitalism, rather than the environment?

Like his friends in Extinction Rebellion, Rob is keen to avoid any scrutiny of the capitalist system and its ruling elite.

He says in the video: “One of the things that makes Transition different from a lot of the previous environmental campaigns that we’re both [he and Falconer?] familiar with is that its starting point isn’t trying to work out whose fault it is that we’ve got into this mess so it doesn’t attribute blame, it focuses on we’re all in this together…”

“We’re all in this together!” Uncanny how he keeps coming up with these phrases!

Zooming forward 11 years to 2020, the big news in Rob’s world is the arrival of a new book, “From What Is To What If“.

You can often learn a lot about someone’s place in society by looking at who is keenest to praise them and their work.

Remember that quote at the top of this article, for instance, about there being no one on earth who’s “done more stuff” than Rob Hopkins? That was Bill McKibben.

Yes, that’s right, the Bill McKibben who founded 350.org and whose gang of full-time climate “activists” were thoroughly exposed in the film “Planet of the Humans” as “de facto lobbyists for green tech billionaires and Wall Street investors determined to get their hands on the whopping $50 trillion profit opportunity that a full transition to renewable technology represents”.

It’s very much the same story if you look at the rave reviews for Rob’s new book.

“I love this book. It is an extraordinary, reality-based report on people around the world applying the power of imagination to rebuild relationships and create a fulfilling, creative, and possible human future together. An essential read for all who care,” writes David C. Korten.

Korten has spent his life working for the likes of the Ford Foundation, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the International Forum on Globalization. He is a member of the Club of Rome.

Here is another review: “Rob Hopkins has long been a leader in imagining how we could remake our societies for the benefit of nature and humankind. His new book is a powerful call to imagine a better world. It should be widely read and appreciated”.

Christiana Figueres

That one comes from Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and World Bank Climate Leader, whose brother José María Figueres was the first CEO of the World Economic Forum, “where he strengthened global corporate ties to social and governmental sectors”.

For more on Figueres and her family, see this Winter Oak article.

Just as worrying as these endorsements for Rob’s work is the way he seems to give little nods of affiliation to the global capitalist elite by slipping their catchphrases into his own statements.

“Plan B”… “new normal”… “we’re all in this together”… “storytelling”… “reimagine everything”… Could all this really be down to coincidence?

Any lingering shred of doubt in this respect is swept away by the subheading of Rob’s new book – “Unleashing the Power of Imagination to Create the Future We Want”.

The Future We Want! One of the branding slogans used to package Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset!

In his talk to the Philippe de Woot Award Ceremony, Rob described an exercise in which, echoing the title of his book, he invited groups of people “to come up with as many ‘What If’ questions they could”.

I would like to take part in this little game with some “What if” questions of my own.

What if Rob’s famous Transition project was never really about empowering local communities, about the relocalisation of society and a return to a natural way of living?

What if it has, all along, been a cunningly-disguised long-term “storytelling” propaganda exercise, softening up public opinion, building “social licence” and “creating longing” for the Great Transition aka the Great Reset?

What if its real roots do not lie in the organic allotments of Totnes, but in the boardrooms of mega-corporations and investment funds, at the UN, the World Bank and the WEF, in the toxic realm of a global power elite seeking to consolidate its complete control over humanity and the natural world?

What if Rob Hopkins is a total fake?

A vile corporate conspiracy: exposing the Great Reset

A hugely important exposé of the Great Reset, aka the Fourth Industrial Revolution, has been published by our fellow campaigner Cory Morningstar on the Wrong Kind of Green website.

The thinking behind the Great Reset can certainly be understood by reading and analysing the works of Klaus Schwab, as we did in October.

But here Cory takes a big step further by highlighting the sheer scale of this incredibly sinister and dangerous project, not just in terms of its warped ambition but in terms of those taking part.

More crucially still, she does not just hint at or speculate about this massive web of manipulative ill-doing, but proves that it exists through link after link, document after document.

This wealth of detail is the cornerstone of the article, even if it means it will be a challenging read for some.

Cory explores numerous aspects to this vast technocratic push for total global domination and control, such as:

Artificial Intelligence

Cory explains that these players are trying to manufacture “social license” for their Great Reset by packaging it as a combined response to the climate/environmental crisis and to the Covid-19 “pandemic”.

It is here that the Great Reset/4IR conspirators are really scraping the barrel of the lowest possible type of human behaviour, displaying all the symptoms of what Cory calls a “depraved psychosis”.

In order to accelerate their destruction of our world with their toxic cult of greed, they are trying to pass themselves off as the planet’s saviours.

In order to push humanity into the high-tech cages they have prepared for us, they are using not just fear, but also a misplaced, hijacked, sense of social responsibility on the part of those who have swallowed their globally-orchestrated brainwashing propaganda about the need to “fight the virus”.

Cory writes: “Promises for a just transition, green deals, new deals, build back better schemes, are nothing but empty, hollow assurances, void of intent. These are the lies they tell. Promises and assertions that are nothing more than alibis.

“While ‘corona’ serves to distract a global populace, a virus Klaus Schwab describes as ‘mild’ in his book COVID-19 The Great Reset, one thing is clear – billionaires are the most dangerous virus of all”.

She identifies smart phones as a key weapon in the dictatorship’s technological armoury of repression.

“Anything ‘smart’ serves capital first and foremost. More than just abstaining, the solution has to be for everyone who owns a smartphone to trash it – never looking back… The truth is, if no one purchased smartphones, they would give them away in cereal boxes”.

“We are embarking on an inescapable and irreversible technological enslavement… This we know: the planet will not be saved by those that have destroyed it”.

And in one passage of particular wisdom, she challenges to the core the myth of “progress” which has been used to push us further and further away from natural happiness and deeper and deeper into an industrial capitalist hell.

“Humans have survived successfully for millennia without mobiles. All we require for our survival is healthy food, clean water, clean sanitation, and shelter. And as social animals, we seek physical community, companionship, joy, and love”.

Will we let the corporate control freaks steal all that from us for ever?

Corporate-branded activism

Ha, you think it’s funny, turning rebellion into money

The Clash

After publishing our exposé of Berlin-based Guerrilla Foundation and its wealthy founder Antonis Schwarz, we came across a telling insight into the world we described.

This is on the site of Interweave, “an awarded, global Interactive Marketing Agency” working for “brands and companies worldwide”.

One of the “brands” Interweave have built is none other than Guerrilla Foundation, famous funder of activists.

Our favourite section comes under the heading “A Complete Corporate Visual Identity”.

This states: “As [sic] integral part of a holistic corporate identity, creating Guerrilla Foundation’s complete visual identity was one of the pillars of this project: a logo that stands out because of its elegant, minimal design illustrating all brand positioning aspects in a solid way – and everything that comes along: typography, colour pallette, letterhead, business cards, and corporate signature”.

“Corporate signature”. We couldn’t have put it better ourselves!

We have listed below some of the organisations that have been receiving funds from Guerrilla Foundation, according to its own site.

If any of our readers are in contact with any of these groups, we suggest they raise the Guerrilla Foundation question with them.

Those pocketing their cash might want to consider exactly what this corporate-branded grant-maker is telling us when it describes its mission as “bringing about major systemic change across Europe in line with the Great Transition”.

They might want to ponder over what Guerrilla Foundation really means when it says it wants to see a “deeply connected” world of “planetary civilization”.

They would do well to consider whether, when Guerrilla Foundation declares “We are not risk averse”, this is the language of activism or of financial speculation.

They could also join us in wondering what kind of “value” Guerrilla Foundation has in mind when it talks about a “broader value shift in society”. Ethical or financial?

And in what direction, precisely, does it hope this “value” will shift?

Receivers of Guerrilla Foundation grants include:

UK. Autonomy: “Could be described as an independent activist think tank, an action-oriented rebel research crew, or a multi-disciplinary lab for rethinking work”.

UK. Red Pepper Magazine: “A pluralist, socialist, feminist and environmentalist media collective”.

UK. The World Transformed: “Supporting, developing and delivering radical political education across the UK in order to build a movement capable of transforming society”.

UK. London Renters Union: “Building the power needed to transform the housing system”.

UK. Extinction Rebellion: “A campaign by the Rising Up network, that promotes a fundamental change of the UK’s political and economic system to one which maximises well-being and minimises harm”.

UK. Plan B: “A network of volunteers pursuing a rational, evidence based response to the climate crisis through strategic legal action”.

Scotland. All Hands On: “A non profit, activist media group”.

Global. Shareable: “Nonprofit media outlet & action network that uses its global communications platform to empower activists, organizations, and municipalities to share for a more equitable, resilient, and joyful world”.

Belgium/Global. The COVID-19 Chronicles podcast: “We cannot go back to normal as normal was the problem”.

Italy. Genova che osa: A “grassroots” organisation that acts locally in Genoa and strives for “big structural changes”.

Germany. Brand New Bundestag: “A grassroots movement, which will channel the energy of social movements into the German parliament by encouraging civil society leaders to run for office and helping them win”.

Germany. Reclaim Our Economy: “Tackles economic leverage points by organising concerted activities to reimagine, co-create and experience systemic change”.

Germany. Frag Den Staat (Ask the State): “Part of the Open Knowledge Foundation, which has a mission to ‘create a more open world'”.

Germany. Disruption Network Lab: “New possible routes of social and political action within the framework of digital culture and information technology”.

Germany. Peng!: “Draw inspiration and learn from the arts, hacking, politics and big business in order to design provocative and critical culture-jamming interventions”.

Germany. The Centre for Intersectional Justice: “Offers a paradigmatic shift to the way we analyse, address and combat systemic inequalities”.

Austria/Europe. Stay Grounded: “Works towards an ecologically sustainable and just form of mobility”.

Netherlands. Fossil Free Culture NL: “Collective of artists and activists creating disobedient art to end oil and gas sponsorship of cultural institutions”.

Spain. The Artivist Network: “Focuses specifically upon climate justice organising for its power as an intersectional platform to unite diverse movements”.

Spain. Ulex Project: “Supporting organisations and groups who are working towards the structural transformations needed to address key irrationalities and injustices in the current socio-economic system”.

Spain. Minim: “A collective that amplifies the voice of municipalism by sharing practical and theoretical knowledge, via a community of activists, scholars, journalists, and public officials”.

Spain. 2020 Rebelión por el Clima: “New coalition of diverse eco-social movements from across the Iberian Peninsula”.

Serbia. The Ministry of Space: “Activist collective that envisions a city in which everyone participates in the decision-making processes”.

Hungary. The School of Public Life: “A grassroots training and research centre in Budapest that promotes active citizenship and social movement organising”.

Czech Republic. Limity jsme my: “Climate justice movement working to address the root causes of the climate crisis by striving to keep fossil fuels in the ground”.

Systemic or Systems Change Activism is what we’re banking on

Guerrillas of the Great Reset

In this special report, we look at the ultra-rich investors who are funding “activists” in the hope of profiting from “systemic change”

The firepower behind the Great Reset can be utterly mind-boggling at times.

And the enormous scope and scale of this global fascist coup, led by the World Economic Forum, becomes particularly apparent when the scam is challenged.

Increased questioning of the vaccine agenda has led to calls for new laws to crush dissent and high-profile figures who speak out against tyranny are systematically smeared in a bid to shut them up.

In France, shockwaves of panic have been spread through the ruling elite by a powerful documentary film exposing the hidden Covid-19 agenda.

Since its November release, ‘Hold-Up‘ has been viewed, shared, downloaded and discussed by literally millions of people.

As word spread, boosted by the recommendation of actress Sophie Marceau, the Thought Police decided the film could no longer simply be ignored.

Macronist politicians screamed “conspiracy theory!” and “fake news!” and now-familiar fascistic measures swung into operation: Pierre Barnérias’s film was taken down from nearly everywhere it was put up online and its crowdfunding disabled.

The mass media played their usual role as well, with a deluge of derision from the whole spectrum of corporate propaganda outlets from Le Monde to Libération.

But this wasn’t enough! This kind of reaction only confirmed the film’s message that the truth was being hidden from the public by the establishment and its cronies.

Another special weapon had to be rolled out to defend the system.

So it was that so-called radicals stepped forward to condemn the film, not just for promoting “conspiracy theories” (automatically conflated with anti-semitism despite the total absence of any such content), but also for the crime of getting positive reviews by some right-wing websites. Smear by unsolicited association!

A certain breed of “activist” also rushed to circulate a video made by a group, ‘Partager c’est Sympa’ (‘Sharing is nice’), which attacks the Hold-Up film from what might appear on the surface to be a leftish perspective.

It attempts to discredit Hold-Up by means of a pseudo-deconstruction voiced by a self-satisfied and self-appointed representative of the Youth of Today wandering around a ruined chateau.

So what lies behind this would-be “debunking” of Hold-Up?

It is interesting to note, in this article showcasing Partager c’est Sympa, that they are involved in “copying Youtubers’ codes and formats” in order to influence viewers in a certain direction, using “unbranded, high-quality videos designed to communicate efficiently on social media”.

“Unbranded” videos and “copying Youtubers’ codes and formats”? This is the language of people trying to pass themselves off as something which they are evidently not.

The article in question adds: “What Partager c’est Sympa are doing has never been done before, in France, and probably in the world (as far as we know). They are a dedicated and young team (26-27 years old), with proven records that they know how to talk to millennials, working hard and fast, and are efficient at getting their videos shared far FAR beyond the usual crowd of NGOs”.

This description appears, in English, on the site of a Berlin-based organisation called Guerrilla Foundation, which has given thousands of euros to Partager c’est Sympa.

Guerrilla Foundation explains on its site that it is involved in “grant-making activities” and in what it calls “storytelling”. This “storytelling” is said to involve creating a “radical, systemic change narrative”.

The ‘Why We Do What We Do‘ section kicks off with a quote from the academic Marshall Ganz, clearly a great inspiration behind Guerrilla Foundation.

Ganz, who offers courses on ‘Leadership, Organizing and Action‘ at the Harvard Kennedy School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, is widely credited with devising the successful “grassroots” organising model and training for Barack Obama’s winning 2008 presidential campaign.

He is also on the board of directors of the Leading Change Network, which describes itself as “a global community of organizers, educators, and researchers” involved in “training the craft of organizing both online and on the ground”.

Ganz is also an enthusiast for what Guerrilla Foundation term “storytelling”.

He declares, in the quote used by Guerrilla Foundation: “Movements have narratives. They tell stories, because they are not just about rearranging economics and politics. They also rearrange meaning”.

So who exactly are these mysterious grant-making guerrillas who want to tell us stories, rearrange economics and politics, even “rearrange meaning”?

The founder of Guerrilla Foundation is Antonis Schwarz, described on its site as “an activist, philanthropist and impact investor of Greek-German descent” who has “used his inherited wealth to support a variety of social causes since 2011”.

Not mentioned there is that Schwarz’s inherited wealth comes from the pharmaceuticals industry, namely Schwarz Pharma (sold in 2006), and that he is part of “one of the richest families in Germany“.

In this video, Schwarz boasts about having established “a powerful network across Europe”, which he presents as consisting of radicals opposing the capitalist system.

But one of the groups to have benefited from Guerrilla Foundation’s largesse (to the tune of “20-40K” in 2018) is Extinction Rebellion, long since exposed as an astroturf movement serving the interests of climate capitalists.

There are unfortunate echoes of that insidious agenda when Guerrilla Foundation declares on its website that “Systemic or Systems Change Activism is what we’re banking on”!

And further research quickly reveals that financial profit very much goes hand in hand with the kind of “activism” it promotes.

Guerrilla Foundation links to a sister site called ‘Good Move Initiatives‘, where Schwarz makes it totally clear that this kind of “philanthropy” is not about giving money away but about gambling today on the possibility of a massive pay-out tomorrow.

Schwarz enthuses: “Advocacy impact strategies are surely accompanied by high levels of risk. Outcomes are by no means guaranteed and your donation will be gone indefinitely irrespective of whether a change was achieved on the actual issue.

“However, if you are a risk-taker and care about achieving the maximum impact with your money, investing into political advocacy is very much worth looking into”.

In a video featured on the home page of the Good Move Initiatives site, Schwarz talks about his “campaign to unlock dormant assets for social impact investing in Germany”.

If you don’t know what “social impact investing” entails, then check out the work of Alison McDowell on her Wrench in the Gears site.

She summarises: “As bets and counter-bets are made by elite financial investors, the future prospects of real people are woven into the oppressive operations of global financial markets. Human potential is subsumed within a colossal machine designed to profit from suffering”.

Antonis Schwarz of Guerrilla Foundation

The reduction of human beings to the status of “human capital” by social impact investors is very much part of The Great Reset promoted by Klaus Schwab and his WEF.

It is therefore a little alarming to discover that Guerrilla Foundation’s mission statement speaks of their commitment to something they term “The Great Transition”.

One of Schwarz’s colleagues goes into more detail about this in the ‘Why We Do What We Do‘ section of the Guerrilla Foundation site.

He points readers towards a 2002 essay called ‘The Great Transition: The Promise and Lure of the Times Ahead‘ from the Global Scenario Group.

“The global transition has begun — a planetary society will take shape over the coming decades,” this announces.

“We are now in the midst of a third significant transition, we argue, toward what we shall refer to as the Planetary Phase of civilization”.

The above table, which also features on the Guerrilla Foundation site, sets out the envisaged Great Transition from old-fashioned ideas like villages, settled agriculture, language and writing to the “Planetary Phase” characterised by “Global governance”, “Globalization” and “Internet”.

A graph shows how the authors imagine this change will happen. There are striking similarities here with how Klaus Schwab describes his Great Reset: a sudden crisis (“take-off” here) is followed by acceleration and then the “stablization” of a new normality.

The “storytelling” used by Guerrilla Foundation and others like them is intended to build a narrative justifying a certain kind of politics, to sell the illusions of nice capitalism, of progressive banking and sustainable growth.

They pride themselves on facilitating “unlikely collaborations” between “activists” and the world of high finance, as this rather strange article on their site reveals.

The author explains how Guerrilla Foundation paid “activists” to attend a capitalist Impact Hub “Unlikely Allies” event.

“We channel all our support towards activists & grassroots movements, so a pluralistic assembly of diverse backgrounds could not possibly be complete without self-identifying activists.

“Ergo, we pitched the idea to cover all expenses associated with participation, accommodation, travel for five European activists, who would not likely (pun intended) come to the event, to do just that”.

The article concludes: “‘Unlikely Allies’ is the name of a book that approximately four people have read, by professor Joel Richard Paul. It is about a merchant, a playwright and a spy who used espionage, betrayal and sexual deception to help win the American Revolution.

“While we are certainly not going to read it, we hope to see this gathering spread like populism, and we are going to take unlikely alliances seriously in helping to achieve the great transition that’s coming”.

There is that key Guerrilla Foundation theme again – the use of deception to bring about a “great transition”.

Schwarz: private wealth

Further insight into the agenda behind Guerrilla Foundation can be gained from another of its founder’s connections.

Antonis Schwarz is involved with the Center for Sustainable Finance and Private Wealth at the University of Zurich’s Department of Banking and Finance, Switzerland.

Under the title ‘Wealth Owner Programs’, this insititution offers a course entitled ‘Impact Investing for the Next Generation’.

This training apparently “equips next generation members of ultra high net worth families with the technical and soft skills needed to move assets towards impact”.

Schwarz actually makes an appearance in this promotional video of the course aimed specifically at the “wealth holders of the next generation” – the global ruling elite of the decades to come – although, in common with some other interviewees, his family name is not disclosed.

The course is also offered across the Atlantic by the Harvard Kennedy School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA – which by a remarkable coincidence is the very same institution where Guerrilla Foundation guru Marshall Ganz teaches ‘Leadership, Organizing and Action’!

A 2019 article on the Bloomberg website explains: “The program has barely been advertised since its founding in 2015 and word is spread through old-money networks and among European royalty”.

It reports the endorsement of Antonis “Guerrilla” Schwarz, who says: “It gets the scions of the world’s wealthiest families together to talk about impact investing, and I don’t know a lot of programs like that”.

And the article also quotes some of the participants, who are “all staggeringly wealthy”.

One of these is Cheng Ming Zhe, an analyst at Singapore-based Golden Equator Wealth, whose family “made a fortune in property”.

Says Cheng: “When people see there are people changing the world and earning a lot of money at the same time, I believe it will set an example for others of our generation to follow”.

“Changing the world and earning a lot of money at the same time”.

There’s the plan in a nutshell!

At the risk of being condemned as “conspiracy theorists” by an army of fake-left guerrillas, we would also like to point out that the ‘Impact Investing for the Next Generation’ course is held “in collaboration with” none other than Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum
