The World Is In Trouble, To Protect Yourself You Need To Understand What Caused It First.

The outlook for 2016 is unfolding exactly as I said it would.  But I'm not psychic and I am also not a pedigreed expert in economics or geopolitics, at least I wasn't when I started down the rabbit-hole, I can assure of that right now.  I've been brash, provocative and arguably arrogant at times about what's in store, and I've always felt anyone who has taken the time to read up on what I have would arrive at the same conclusions.  My time and effort spent works to your advantage, if you go back and track what I've written about you can understand the process that lead me here for yourself, and for pity's sake please check out the recommended sites on the right hand side of this blog (either hover your mouse pointer over the receded tabs or click on them, depending on your OS, browser or device).  There is a treasure chest of top drawer knowledge available to anyone who is interested.  It is interest alone, not ability that stands in your way.  Look at the websites, follow them on Twitter, like them on Facebook and do it NOW.

The Petrodollar hegemony provides the clearest overview


The US and it's Allies links to terror and rebel insurgency

The detailed history provides the context

All the signs were there

The efforts to suppress the gold price

My call

A personal and sarcastic plea

Too big to fail

Geopolitical Sample

My warning to everyone bigging-up the economy at the time


Golds destiny was always up, the Dollars was always down this was already clear in 2014

Connecting a few dots

An exercise

Bitcoin and Crypto-currency were destined to play a bigger role

The writing was on the wall


Who we are VS how we react

Self Awareness

An exercise in spin using your personal life to explore themes

My first ever post and statement of method without yet having a clear mission statement

Scientific Consensus is that Consensus is overturned 100% of the time

Everything you know is wrong. There is a very good reason why science succeeds more often than politics does.  Unlike politics, It's not a consensus or a vote,  it's actually method.  The scientific method. Anyone who has read this blog before probably knows I'm a lifelong science junkie as well as someone who spends thousands of hours breaking down the the political and economic agendas behind the special interest groups that guide public policy.  In many ways I'm actually uniquely qualified to tie these angles together in ways not well understood by the overwhelming majority of people.  That actually includes scientists. Scientists are notoriously naive in the political and economic forces that drive the human world.

First and foremost,  what is this so called 'consensus' anyway.  You will be horrified to find out,  it's not specifically that global warming is man made.  It's simply that humans contribute to climate change in an unknowable way and to…

CO2 is not a pollutant, it is greening the earth!

Whatever your persuasion is on CO² and AGW, nobody disagrees on the tremendous benefit it provides plant life. Many of the past famine disasters and desertification has CO² decline listed as a contributor.

I feel I've already blown the notion that humans are the main cause of climate change out of the water. Or rather I've used the reasoning of others and put it together in a convenient outline. See my previous post above for starters.  However, I recognize that humans do increase CO² levels, no matter how tiny. Increases are likely to be very short lived because the earth has an effective feedback mechanism, but we can apparently get small increases, and it's been put forward on very poor science that this is a bad thing. That assertion hinges completely on bad models. More on that in the bottom most link.  Model's and the measurement sample dates are dubious at best.

Furthermore, the main increase in CO²  as…

You Don't Know What Capitalism Is So Stop Using The Word!

I am writing this for one purpose, to be able to post it every time the issue comes up in conversation to prevent myself from dying of boredom on a few key issues with label intellectuals, you know, the sort who drop labels for the singular purpose of demonstrating their talent at dodging real issues by posing as someone who knows the definition of a word.

When it comes right down to it, I personally think most economic and, for that matter, socio-economic systems across the entire capitalism/ socialism spectrum could work if corruption could just be reasonably controlled.  Many forget that Socialism still runs on the capitalism economics system and the finer points actually come down to policy and regulations. This is often missed.  That being said, I am fairly sure that many of the criticisms of communism for example are valid, and views that it does not work especially well because it tends to kill the inventiveness and passion of the human spirit do stand, but not for the reasons…
