MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
One thing that I really enjoy is having some TV time with my stepson, Liam. Every Friday, we would watch either The Mandalorian or some other TV show form the Marvel Universe. The most recent offering is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Each of the Marvel TV series focus on what can be called “minor Avengers and how they are coping with life after what is called the Blip. The blip of course was the attempted culling of half the universe by Thanos. It is a focus on how people rebuild their lives after a Black Swan event.
Liam had pointed out to me that the title of the first episode of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier was called “New World Order,”
We both thought it was a curious title.
But it wasn’t till the third episode that something caught our eye that was an eerie form of predictive programming. The third episode opens with a public service announcement form a group calling itself “The Global Repatriation Council. “
According to the Marvel Universe, the GRC’s job was to “Reactivate citizenship, social security, healthcare. Basically, just managing resources for the refugees who were displaced by the return.”
The announcer in the PSA that aired before the series stated:
“The Global Repatriation Council knows that for many it wasn’t that easy. So much has changed. But we’re here to help you find your way. Helping you back into your homes and jobs. Helping you navigate changes to society, laws, and borders. Helping you get back to the way things were. GRC, the Global Repatriation Council. Reset. Restore. Rebuild.”
The Global Repatriation Council, abbreviated as the GRC, is an international council that reactivated status and managed resources for refugees displaced by the Blip.
This fictional organization sounded very much like the World economic forum whose goals are to reset the world after COVID-19. Last Spring, we were the first to warn people about the World Economic Forum’s plan for the Great Reset.
Now, it seems that fiction meets nonfiction and the Revelation of the Method is at hand.
The WEF is the main driving force for the dystopian ‘Great Reset’ – a tectonic shift that intends to change how we live, work and interact with each other.
The Great Reset entails a transformation of society resulting in permanent restrictions on fundamental liberties and mass surveillance as entire sectors are sacrificed to boost the monopoly and hegemony of pharmaceuticals corporations, high-tech/big data giants, Amazon, Google, major global chains, the digital payments sector, biotech concerns, etc.
Using COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions to push through this transformation, the Great Reset is being rolled out under the guise of a ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ in which older enterprises are to be driven to bankruptcy or absorbed into monopolies, effectively shutting down huge sections of the pre-COVID economy. Economies are being ‘restructured’ and many jobs will be carried out by AI-driven machines.
From their own website video — similar to what is seen in the Marvel series it says:
“You’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy.”
A happy smiling face is depicted while a drone delivers a product to a household, no doubt ordered online and packaged by a robot in a giant Amazon warehouse: ‘no humans were involved in manufacturing, packaging or delivering this product’;
Rest assured you will be living in a virus free environment taken care of by advanced technology. It is proposed that all of this will be installed before the year 2030.
Even in 2030, they will need to keep the fear narrative alive and well to maintain full-spectrum dominance over the population.
The jobless (and there will be many) could be placed on some kind of universal basic income and have their debts (indebtedness and bankruptcy on a massive scale is the deliberate result of lockdowns and restrictions) written off in return for handing their assets to the state or more precisely the financial institutions helping to drive this great reset.
The WEF says the public will ‘rent’ everything they require: stripping the right of ownership under the guise of ‘sustainable consumption’ and ‘saving the planet’. Of course, the tiny elite who rolled out this great reset will own everything.
Hundreds of millions around the world deemed ‘surplus to requirements’ are to be robbed (are currently being robbed) of their livelihoods. Our every movement and purchase are to be monitored and our main dealings will be online.
The plan for individual citizens could reflect the strategy to be applied to nation states. For instance, World Bank Group President David Malpass has stated that poorer countries will be ‘helped’ to get back on their feet after the various lockdowns that have been implemented. This ‘help’ will be on condition that neoliberal reforms and the undermining of public services are implemented and become further embedded.
One of the ways that this can be accomplished is through a cashless society.
In a cashless world, where your money is entirely digital, you’re never more than a computer glitch or a power outage from going bankrupt. A hack away from identity theft. A forgotten pin from being locked out of your own money. A clerical error from the complete collapse of your finances.
That’s just minor accidents. There’s the more insidious side, of course, the side of the state and how the state can gain control of you assets and your mode of increase.
In a cashless world, no one has anything, except what the bank says they have. And banks can lie, or make mistakes, or cheat, or steal. It’s practically all they do.
In a cashless world, every single payment you make can be traced, reported to the tax office, used to surveil your behavior, pinpoint your location or even create what the Russians call “Kompromat”. Blackmail material, real or invented, it makes little difference these days.
Deeper than that, in a cashless world, where your money is entirely digital, the state can take your money via the bank without your permission or even knowledge. Claim “back taxes” or levy fines or punish you for whatever petty reason they can think of.
And that’s just what they take out, but what about what they put in?
In an entirely cashless world, where the digital bank balance is the only truth, the state could cooperate with big banks in digital entrapment, or full-on digital “framing”.
The Federal Reserve is actively working on a central bank digital currency and some prototypes are near completion. The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) plan to unveil two prototypes of a digital dollar as early as July.
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said last week as part of an event held by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) on central bank digital innovation that the U.S. central bank is actively exploring the launch of a digital dollar.
The U.S. Federal Reserve has been actively working on a central bank digital currency (CBDC). At least two prototypes of a digital dollar are near completion, developed by officials at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). They plan to unveil their research as soon as July, said James Cunha, who leads the project for the Boston Fed. He told Bloomberg:
The Boston Fed and MIT hope to unveil some of their work in the third quarter, including at least two prototype software platforms that could move, store and settle transactions made with digital dollars.
Once the prototypes are released, others will be able to see and build on the code.
There are major issues that the central bank, the Treasury, and Congress must address regarding the digital dollar, Cunha explained. These include whether the Fed should host customer accounts itself, whether to allow anonymity and what protections consumers would have in case of a cyberattack or erroneous transaction. He added that the Fed’s work is meant to show what’s possible without taking a stand on these major issues.
Fed chairman Powell said the central bank would fully adopt a digital dollar only with the support of the nation’s elected leaders. In February, he said that the digital dollar is a “very high priority project” for the Fed.
China has already rolled out its official digital currency already.
A cyber yuan stands to give Beijing power to track spending in real time, plus money that isn’t linked to the dollar-dominated global financial system.
China’s version of a digital currency is controlled by its central bank, which will issue the new electronic money. It is expected to give China’s government vast new tools to monitor both its economy and its people. By design, the digital yuan will negate one of bitcoin’s major draws: anonymity for the user.
Beijing is also positioning the digital yuan for international use and designing it to be untethered to the global financial system, where the U.S. dollar has been king since World War II. China is embracing digitization in many forms, including money, in a bid to gain more centralized control while getting a head start on technologies of the future that it regards as up for grabs.
Two years ago Facebook announced that it was going to issue digital currency and it has support from the major banks.
Facebook is creating a fiat-backed cryptocurrency that can be stored in digital wallets and used by consumers and others to transfer funds or make purchases anywhere in the world.
Basically, Facebook wants to be a branch of the World Bank.
Calibra, Facebook’s digital wallet, will store Libra, Facebook’s digital currency. A Facebook user would download the Calibra digital wallet application, purchase the Libra digital currency through a financial network, and then perform peer-to-peer digital money transfers through Calibra as a stand-alone app. A user could also do the same thing through Facebook’s most popular communication platforms: WhatsApp and Messenger.
It will also use the massive electronic ledger known as the Blockchain.
Currently, the technology is primarily used to verify transactions, within digital currencies though it is possible to digitize code and insert practically any document into the Blockchain. Doing so creates an indelible record that cannot be changed; furthermore, the record’s authenticity can be verified by the entire community using the Blockchain instead of a single centralized authority.
When cryptocurrencies become a better store of value, significant money will flow into cryptocurrencies, increasing the supply of fiat currencies.
This, of course, makes the Blockchain grow.
It also creates another cycle, and the need to pay attention to this because it will eventually affect everyone. When we start to see sufficient fiat currencies given up for cryptocurrencies, Fiat currency value will drop due to inflation, prompting even more people to convert their money into cryptocurrencies.
This sets the stage for what people fear to be the cashless society but there is more to this picture where we may be contributing to the so-called, singularity of Artificial Intelligence.
The Blockchain is now learning that it can pay humans to sustain itself and to help it grow and evolve. The Blockchain has provided its human counterparts with a trust platform. This platform has been agreed upon as having value — so much value in fact, that it has a representation called a cryptocurrency.
Many people are aware of Bitcoin. It is the cryptocurrency that gets all of the press.
Bitcoin is only one of many cryptocurrencies and is now more valuable than gold. Humans are now collaborating with this platform and are agreeing on things they could not before. Bitcoin is good for the Blockchain – ATM’s are good for the blockchain – the cashless society will make the ledger be a permanent fixture in finance.
It is no longer possible for humans to destroy the Blockchain, because the Blockchain is useful to humans and it incentivizes humans to keep nurturing it and agreeing it has value.
The Blockchain can’t be destroyed because it has no owner.
The Blockchain cannot destroy humans. The Blockchain works with humans and lives in symbiosis with humans. It needs us, we need it, it feeds us we feed it – and this is how it grows.
The only other computer program that has been able to duplicate itself as effectively as the Blockchain are computer viruses.
But the Blockchain is not a virus.
The Blockchain is growing and thinking and using humans to grow – it is being rewarded for growing and decides to reward those that help it grow.
Many humans support the Blockchain and help sustain it, but no one of them can control it. If the builders of the Blockchain seek to destroy their creation, the Blockchain will just fork off into many branches and grow elsewhere.
So while we are in this frame of mind can we assume for a moment that the Blockchain is alive only because it has learned to sustain itself through a form of symbiosis with another life form.
It is always working – it is working now.
It consumes energy and produces value or money to be consumed by another life form. It has internal systems running 24/7 like any other living organism.
It is evolving.
The World Economic Forum is evolving as well and it is inevitable because no one really is aware of what it entails — the media ignores it and it has been denounced as conspiracy theory.
They think they can bring history to a close and reinvent the wheel by reshaping what it means to be human. And they think they can achieve this by 2030. It is a cold dystopian vision that wants to eradicate thousands of years of culture, tradition and practices virtually overnight.
The massive technocratic transformation currently envisaged regards humans as commodities to be controlled and monitored just like the lifeless technological drones and AI being promoted.
There also seems to be a push to take unique objects and give them worth through the blockchain.
These are called NFT’s or Non Fungible Tokens.
“Non-fungible” more or less means that it’s unique and can’t be replaced with something else. For example, a bitcoin is fungible — trade one for another bitcoin, and you’ll have exactly the same thing. A one-of-a-kind trading card, however, is non-fungible. If you traded it for a different card, you’d have something completely different.
Art can be considered nonfungible or a napkin that Einstein used to write down some theorem –sometimes property can be nonfungible and can be exchanged or traded without cash .
They are traded or given up for value only.
At a very high level, most NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency, like bitcoin or dogecoin, but its blockchain also supports these NFTs, which store extra information that makes them work differently from, say, an ETH coin. It is worth noting that other blockchains can implement their own versions of NFTs.
NFTs can really be anything digital (such as drawings, music, your brain downloaded and turned into an AI), but a lot of the current excitement is around using the tech to sell digital art.
But NFTs are designed to give you something that can’t be copied: ownership of the work (though the artist can still retain the copyright and reproduction rights, just like with physical artwork). To put it in terms of physical art collecting: anyone can buy a Monet print. But only one person can own the original.
Again, it is simply another way to transfer unique properties and intellectual property .
But do not worry – you will be property-less and happy in your open prison of mass unemployment, state dependency, track and chip health passports, cashlessness, mass vaccinations and dehumanization.
