Must Read, “The Dawning of a New Era: Post-Capitalism 1.0”: “This situation was engineered by the technocrats to produce an outcome. Since, at least temporarily, the concocted coronacrisis is losing its power to enforce lockdown compliance, now the excuse of civil unrest is being used. The population will now become acclimatized to the presence of police and military on the streets enforcing curfews and restricting mobility. The reorganization of socio-economic behavior and structures is rapidly proceeding. Expect the use of technologies such as EM wave and sound cannons against the population. We are transitioning to a centrally planned technocracy. Google and Microsoft are developing the Artificial Intelligence, Apple and Facebook collect and funnel the big data, Amazon is the central distribution/consumption hub. Obviously there are other big tech players involved, but that’s the basic layout of “the economy”. 5G rollout is HUGE, and it’s not a happenstance that it is being rolled out now at this juncture. This sets up the architecture of Internet of Things and BIG data necessary to feed and grow the central AI management systems.” By Steven Vincent

Quote, Dr. Carroll Quigley, 1966: “The redistribution of wealth by changing prices is equally important but attracts much less attention. Rising prices benefit debtors and injure creditors, while falling prices do the opposite. A debtor called upon to pay a debt at a time when prices are higher than when he contracted the debt must yield up less goods and services than he obtained at the earlier date, on a lower price level when he borrowed the money. A creditor, such as a bank, which has lent money—equivalent to a certain quantity of goods and services—on one price level, gets back the same amount of money—but a smaller quantity of goods and services—when repayment comes at a higher price level, because the money repaid is then less valuable.

“This is why bankers, as creditors in money terms, have been obsessed with maintaining the value of money, although the

Quote, Dr. Carroll Quigley, 1966,”In addition to these pragmatic goals, the powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole”.
